Learning Skills

Effective communication is a cornerstone of healthy relationships. In our online couples therapy, we prioritize teaching essential communication skills to enhance your relationship dynamics. We focus on techniques such as nonviolent communication, assertiveness, and negotiation to promote effective and compassionate dialogue.

By learning these skills, you and your partner can express your needs, concerns, and emotions in a constructive manner with an emphasis on emotionally focused therapy. We strive to create win-win scenarios where both partners feel heard, understood, and valued. Through these communication skills, we foster a deeper connection and build a foundation of trust and mutual respect in your relationship.

Homework and Practice

In our online couples therapy, we emphasize the significance of homework and practice outside of therapy sessions. While the therapy sessions provide valuable guidance and support, it is through consistent practice that true change occurs. We will provide you with practical exercises and assignments designed to reinforce the skills and strategies learned in therapy.

By actively engaging in homework and practicing these techniques between sessions, you and your partner can integrate them into your daily lives. This intentional practice helps solidify new behaviors and enables you to navigate challenges more effectively, fostering long-term growth and improvement in your relationship.

State-Dependent Learning

At the Bay Area CBT Center, we recognize the importance of state-dependent learning in online couples therapy. We understand that learning new skills and behaviors while in an activated state can enhance retention and application in real-life situations.

Therefore, we employ therapeutic techniques and interventions that target specific stages of your relationship journey. By addressing issues and learning new skills in the context of emotional activation, we facilitate a deeper understanding and better recall of these skills during moments of trigger or distress.

Practical and Simple Approach

In our online couples therapy, we prioritize a practical and simple approach that is accessible and consented to by both partners. We ensure informed consent and clear understanding of the treatment process, including how we address specific issues, identify underlying causes, and work towards resolution.

Our therapists provide a supportive and non-judgmental environment where you and your partner can openly discuss concerns, ask questions, and actively participate in the therapy process. We believe that by demystifying therapy and adopting a practical approach, couples can feel empowered to make positive changes and experience meaningful growth in their relationship. Our online therapy might be right for you. In person therapy is also available if you feel that is the best path for your couples counseling approach.
