Online Couples Therapy

Online Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Couples

All couples have conflict, but not all conflicts turn into fights. Conflict often brings couples closer and creates more connection because it offers an opportunity to learn, understand, and empathize, with each other. Turning conflict into connection is a skill that needs to be learned and practiced. Building healthy interpersonal relationships is not an easy task, and we need to have the tools to be able to communicate and problem solve effectively.

The Bay Area CBT Center offers online CBT counseling for couples with busy schedules who can’t meet in person. You and your partner can meet with your therapist from the comfort of your own home. The Bay Area CBT Center provides online couples therapy that only utilizes research-based treatments for couples. Our clinicians are highly trained in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and specialize in integrating Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Schema Therapy to work with couples. We utilize tools from Nonviolent Communication, exposure therapy, Attachment Theory, The Gottman Method, and Emotionally Focused Therapy to teach you the skills you need to create the relationship you desire.
