Couples Therapy

With all the differences couples have in terms of personality, background, ideology etc., it’s a wonder healthy relationships even exist! But relationships in which both partners maintain their individuality and still share a deep passionate connection are entirely possible when couples learn to communicate and avoid common pitfalls.

The first step is simple enough – you need to show up for marriage or couples counseling. It is fairly common for one or both of you to be skeptical that the process will help or that your therapist will be impartial. Rest assured that our methods are entirely non-judgmental and are only intended to be constructive. We make every effort to understand the problem from both angles in therapy and workshops.

It is also important for both partners to understand that the perfect couple does not exist, at least in the sense that they agree on everything and never argue. At Alpha Behavioral Care, P.A., our goal is to teach couples how to improve communication to resolve conflicts in a positive manner without hurting either partner. In this type of communication, the primary objective is to avoid blaming your partner or yourself, a sure-fire way to end a constructive argument.

Additional benefits couples can expect are:

  • Reduced Anxiety and Stress
  • A Brighter Outlook on Life
  • Improved Relationships with Friends, Family and Coworkers
  • A Loving and Growing Relationship
  • Enhanced Intimacy and Sexuality

Alpha Behavioral Care, P.A. was founded on a commitment to make it simple for couples find the love they’ve always wanted, and we are proud of the strong record of bringing couples together our treatment programs have had. So whether you’ve never been to couples counseling before or have been unsuccessful in previous attempts, we can help.
