Do I need Empathi couples therapy?

Couples enter new relationships filled with hope and excitement for the future, dreaming of the possibilities that lie before us.

As dating blossoms into a committed relationship, you see the future and it looks bright.

But time has a way of playing tricks on relationships. Other obligations take over, problems arise between you and your partner, you exchange harsh words, and rifts form between you. Maybe you lie to each other—about small things, at first, but soon the trust is entirely gone. You worry that this might be the end of things. You love your partner. You’re committed. You don’t want it to be over. 

This doesn’t have to be the end.

If harsh words, dishonesty, and other relationship struggles have brought your relationship to the brink, don’t despair. There is help to be had.

Can a couples therapist near me help repair our relationship?

Are you looking for couples therapy in Santa Rosa, CA? You’re not alone. Many, many couples encounter rifts forming in their relationship as a result of conflict, dishonesty, and disconnection. Thousands of couples are experiencing the same struggle and more reach out for help every day. You don’t have to work alone in your fight to repair your relationship.

Here are the most common issues people in Santa Rosa, CA come to us with:

Unmarried couples can come to odds over the topic of marriage. When one partner feels ready to move forward and the other doesn’t believe that it’s the right time it can cause friction within the relationship.

If you or your partner have done something to damage the trust in your relationship, you probably feel like there’s no way past it. Broken trust is a difficult issue to face, but it’s an obstacle that we’ve guided many partners through, reopening intimacy to them.

Time and difficulty often take a toll on physical and emotional connections. This is a common issue that faces many couples. Good relationship counseling works to restore those connections and bring you and your partner closer together.

We’ve helped couples overcome countless issues such as these which stand in the way of their fulfillment. We’re here to help you overcome yours as well.

What if I've tried couples therapy in Santa Rosa before?

If you’ve seen a relationship therapist in the past and it hasn’t worked for you, don’t be discouraged. A quality couples therapist can help restore the magic to your relationship. You’ve come to the right place. Our expert professionals have experience guiding partners through all types of issues.

Couples Counseling for parents

Here's why our approach works

Our relationship counseling is provided by experienced couples therapists. We use established methods that have been shown to work in order to walk you through rebuilding your relationship.

Trust is the most important ingredient in any relationship. It may already be difficult for one or both of you to trust. Perhaps one of you broke that trust along the way. We apply attachment theory to guide you through restoring that sense of safety with each other and healing your relationship.

Damaging habits that come with addiction can seriously damage a couple’s bond. These habits chip away at trust and intimacy and do serious harm to a committed relationship. Experiential psychotherapy methods get at the root of addictive behaviors and give you the tools to build healthy habits.

It’s not unhealthy to disagree from time to time. However, persistent conflict isn’t good for a relationship. Through emotionally focused therapy (EFT), Empathi turns conflict into communication. 86% of couples who’ve gone through EFT see real improvement right away. This improvement continues long-term for 73% of couples.

Here are the ways we make it easy:

Couples Therapy in Santa Rosa

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.

Resilience

Rely on your bond to get out of stuck moments.

Having proved your ability to resolve long-standing issues, heated conflicts, and negative cycles, face your future together with a certainty that you will not only survive those moments, but grow stronger and more connected because of them.

An online search of couples counseling in Santa Rosa will turn up numerous results. Read all you can about the therapists and facilities that interest you. Find a therapist that specializes in relationship counseling. The more experience, the better.

Here are some tips to help you choose the right therapist for you:

When you reach out to get counseling, try to speak to the therapist who will be helping you, so that you can get a good grasp of how they communicate. There are many excellent couples therapists out there, but you want to find the right one for you and your partner. It’s important that your therapist understands you and your issues and that they can effectively convey their message to you.

If a counselor’s values are similar to the principles you and your partner share, they’ll be much more effective guides to get you through your issues.

If possible, ask your potential therapist some questions before you decide whether they’re right for you. If you don’t get a good first impression, you’re not likely to get any real benefit from your sessions.

What questions should I ask before starting couples therapy in Santa Rosa, CA?

Most therapists offer initial consultations. When you first see them, give your potential therapists an interview. Have some questions prepared and base your decision on how they answer.

Your goal is to discover the qualifications of the therapist that you’ll be seeing and make sure they’re a good fit for you.
