Have You Been Struggling To Maintain A Healthy Connection With Your Partner?

Do you feel stuck, hopeless, and alone in your relationship? Is it difficult for you and your significant other to communicate your feelings, emotions, and needs with one another? Does it feel like you’re putting more effort into the relationship than you receive in return?

Lately, it may feel like you and your partner are having the same arguments over and over. No matter how much you try to express your feelings, your partner never seems—or worse, even tries—to understand things from your perspective.

You may be stuck in unhealthy communication patterns, struggling to resolve conflicts without hurting one another’s feelings. Or maybe there’s a difference in how you both express yourselves—one of you may feel more prone to address conflicts immediately, while the other might shy away and let the problems build up before ultimately exploding once the boiling point is reached. As a result, maybe you’re thinking that it’s time for both of you to seek support.

When Your Bond Is Damaged, Your Relationship Can Feel Irreparable

Sometimes, it’s difficult to be vulnerable and confide in one another because you feel like your bond has been so deeply tarnished. You might lack trust in each other due to jealousy, insecurities, or past instances of infidelity. If this is the case, you may be at the point in your relationship where you both feel so overwhelmed that you believe your problems are impossible to manage or repair.

Luckily, no matter what challenges you face, couples therapy at Bay Area CBT Center will provide you with a safe space to reestablish the warmth and love that you long for in your relationship. Our counseling services offer couples insight and practical skills based on mindfulness, communication, and conflict resolution so that they can focus on building each other up.

Many Couples Find It Challenging To Stay On The Same Page

We are all wired to seek meaningful, loving connections throughout our lives. However, every relationship, no matter who you are or who you’re with, will experience pitfalls and conflicts from time to time. Whether unkind words are said in the heat of the moment or you’ve let your problems build up and fester over time, it can be easy to let your negative emotions get the best of you and lose sight of how you treat one another.

This is why it is important to understand that it’s not always about the problem at hand but how you choose to react to the problem that can either benefit or hinder the overall quality of your relationship. Without having the tools or knowledge on how to share your needs and desires in a healthy way, it can be a challenge for you and your partner to stay on the same page.

You May Feel Tired Of Trying To Make Things Work

Oftentimes, when partners finally seek help from a couples therapist, they feel so overwhelmed that they believe their problems are impossible to manage or repair. They may feel stuck in painful patterns involving a lack of trust, communication, and intimacy.

Having the tools to figure out healthy ways to share your needs, concerns, and desires can help you break these patterns. And couples therapy with Bay Area CBT Center can provide you with the insight and wisdom you need to do just that.

We offer couples counseling that is designed to meet the unique needs of each and every relationship. We provide a respectful and affirming environment that acknowledges and celebrates your unique journey together.

Our therapy services are tailored, transformative, and focused on helping couples empower one another—and we’ll be here to guide you every step of the way.

INNOVATIVE COUPLES THERAPY

Bay Area CBT Center Offers Therapy To Help Couples Overcome Obstacles And Move Forward On The Right Path

No relationship is immune to challenges and conflict. This is why—no matter your gender, background, or sexual orientation—our couples therapists at CBT Bay Area Center provide engaging, comprehensive counseling services aimed to help you improve communication, intimacy, and your overall emotional well-being.

Oftentimes, your conflicts grow out of your core beliefs, which we call “schemas.” While you and your partner may be unaware of your schemas, they usually shape not only the theme of your relationships but also your individual thoughts, actions, and major life decisions.

In therapy, we want to help you identify your schemas so that you know what to look for when certain disagreements occur. Once you realize the recurring themes in your relationship that are holding you back, we can help you learn new skills to stay proactive and address potential issues before they escalate.

At its core, Somatic Therapy integrates the mind, body, and spirit to help partners enhance their connection by using bodily sensations to release tension and promote deep healing.
