Homework and Practice

In our couples counseling sessions online, we stress the importance of applying what's learned beyond our virtual meeting room. True transformation comes from consistent practice. We'll equip you with tailored exercises to build on therapy insights, enhancing your relationship skills. Committing to these practices with your partner ensures the principles of counseling become part of your everyday interactions, leading to lasting behavioral change and improved handling of relationship hurdles.

State-Dependent Learning

We recognize the importance of state-dependent learning in online couples therapy. Learning new skills and behaviors while triggered can enhance retention and application outside of therapy. Our online couples sessions leverage the power of emotional moments. Engaging in new behaviors isn’t just about discussion; it’s about doing so when emotions are high. This approach helps cement these strategies in your memory, making them more accessible when you really need them.

This includes a clear outline of our goals, the issues we’ll tackle, and our methods for resolving them. We provide a supportive space for open discussion, empowering you to actively engage in the therapy process. Our aim is to demystify therapy, showing you how practical and effective it can be in fostering growth and positive change in your relationship.
