Couples Counseling

Couples Counseling  Greenwich, Darien, Westport, Westchester, and Surrounding Areas in Connecticut and New York

At Sala Psychology, Couples Therapy is one of our main areas of expertise. We will work with you and your partner to change unhelpful dynamics and improve your relationship.

Our approach includes Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Behavioral Integrative Couples Therapy, which scientific research has shown to be the most effective methods for couples therapy.

What kind of couples do you work with?

We provide couples counseling to couples that are experiencing relationship distress, infidelity, adjustments/transitions (e.g., to a new job, new baby), difficulties with emotional or physical intimacy, difficulties managing intense emotions, and couples seeking relationship enhancement.

What is your treatment approach?

Our approach utilizes an integrative style. We mainly integrate Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Integrative Behavioral Couple Therapy. Gottman Method Couples Therapy focuses on strengthening the couples relationship in friendship, conflict management, and shared meaning. The Integrative Behavioral Couples Therapy assumes that relationship problems result not just from the actions and inactions of partners but also from their emotional reactivity to each other's behavior. Research shows that almost two-thirds of couples improve after these treatment approaches. You can make concrete changes to accommodate the needs of your partner and show greater emotional acceptance of one another. By working through current issues, you can begin to understand how they may be part of a bigger pattern in the relationship. You can learn how your past has shaped your present behaviors in the relationship. We also integrate other techniques, such as Cognitive Behavioral Couple Therapy, and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.
