Is there a relationship therapist near me who can help me?

Are you looking for relationship counseling in New York City, NY? You’re not alone. Whether you’re experiencing issues that could damage your relationship or are just looking to get back on track with your committed partner, thousands of couples are experiencing the same struggles. More reach out for help every day.

Here are the most common issues people in NYC come to us with:

Disagreements often arise between couples regarding what belongs to whom. They also often experience conflict over finances, especially when one partner earns significantly more than the other. This dynamic is typically prevalent in times when a couple is also experiencing struggles in other areas of their relationship.

Division of responsibility is often a trigger point for couples. When partners share a home, couples often disagree over the delegation of tasks in the home and duties to the household. These issues are especially difficult to deal with when a couple has children.

Loss of intimacy is a common reason people seek out relationship counseling in New York City. A slowdown in romance isn’t uncommon in long-term, committed relationships. Though it’s normal for things to settle a bit or shift over time, if it causes friction, you should seek couples therapy to help you work through your intimacy issues.

When two partners don’t share the same opinion on the importance of marriage for their futures, it can cause conflict between them. This often happens when one partner feels ready to move forward and the other doesn’t believe that it’s the right time

With guidance and tools provided by Empathi, together you and your partner can work through these and many other issues.

What if couples therapy in New York City hasn't worked for me in the past?

Maybe you’ve seen some type of relationship therapist before and they didn’t provide the guidance you needed. It could be that the therapist didn’t have the right experience or their methods just didn’t help in the way you hoped they would. You’ve come to the right place.

Begin the Empathi Process

Your expert counselor is here to guide you back to connection using Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy and the Empathi Method.

Acceptance

The hardest part is just getting started.

Healing starts with accepting you need help, booking a free consult, and showing up as you are. Everything that comes next will be easier as you’re held by an Empathi therapist and a proven process. From now on, you’re not alone in this.

Alliance

Feel like you’re on the same team again.

Explore your process and discover a unified narrative where neither of you are wrong or right, “the good one,” or “the bad one.” Learn to approach suffering and conflicts as an “us” problem instead of a “them” problem or a “me” problem.

Empathy

See the hurt and love behind their reactivity.

Strengthen your new narrative by accessing empathy to recognize the root of each other’s reactivity, how much you matter to each other, and what love is. Understand the cycles you get into with the help of your expert Empathi counselor.

Vulnerability

Share the hurt and love behind your reactivity.

Get to know, live in, and share your vulnerable feelings. Then, learn to let in the ways that those feelings are understood and accepted by your partner through the power of the Empathi method and Emotionally-Focused Couples Therapy.

Connection

Feel deeply and securely bonded to one another.

Mend your relationship and your wounds through the understanding that you matter to each other. Learn to grieve, show up for, heal, and accept the most vulnerable parts inside of each other without sacrificing those parts in yourselves.

Rely on your bond to get out of stuck moments.

What questions should I ask before beginning couples therapy?

Once you’ve narrowed down your options, schedule a consultation. Have some questions prepared. Interview your potential therapist and base your decision on how they answer.

You’ll want to know the qualifications of the counselor that you’ll be seeing and to make sure they seem like a good fit.

These questions will help you better determine if the therapist is a good option for you:

It’s important that you stick with counseling once it starts, because you’ll get the best results if you complete the plan. Couples who’ve stayed with therapy until it was complete have better outcomes all around—they enjoy better emotional health, live longer, and many report themselves as being happier than before they started therapy.

Seeking out a quality couples therapist is the best first step in repairing your relationship. An experienced counselor is able to objectively look at your partnership and provide you with the right tools to give you the best outcome.

If the challenges of your relationship are becoming seemingly insurmountable obstacles to you and your partner, now is the best time to take action. The quicker you act, the sooner quality couples therapy can help guide you through your challenges. Come to Empathi for quality counseling and let us help you restore your relationship.
