Couples Therapy for Mental Health

The National Alliance on Mental Illness reports that approximately 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. experiences mental illness in a given year. I understand that the relationship between mental health symptoms (e.g., feeling sad or down, excessive worrying, difficulty coping with daily stress, etc.) and relationship distress is complicated. It is hard to figure out which symptoms are due to mental illness and which symptoms are a result of normal, relationship problems. I can help you and your partner:

  • Understand the relationship between mental health symptoms and relationship distress
  • Acknowledge how certain communication patterns increase mental health symptoms and relationship distress
  • Learn which contexts to use supportive vs. problem solving communication skills
  • Identify the warning signs of mental health relapse and relationship distress and develop a plan to repair and restore individual and couple satisfaction

During our work together, we will determine all of the factors that keep you and your partner stuck and identify a plan to address relationship problems and mental health symptoms at the same time. Your feedback is important to me, so we’ll evaluate therapy regularly to make sure we’re continuing to work towards your goals.
