Couples Therapy in Fort Lauderdale
Successful, loving relationships do not just happen to lucky people, they are the result of continuous effort.
Whether you are a married couple of 20-plus years or a pair beginning a new journey, couples therapy can help relationships. It’s not uncommon for some couples to shy away from therapy due to the belief that counseling is reserved for those on the brink. Although couples therapy is often sought during an intense point in the relationship, it’s also an effective tool early on to increase connection and relationship satisfaction.
Couples Therapy teaches partners how to manage conflict, increase effective communication, and enhance intimacy & friendship.
Many couples find the Gottman Method Couples Therapy is extremely helpful. Dr. John Gottman’s research shows that to make a relationship last, couples must learn skills to manage conflict, become better friends, and support each other’s hopes and dreams.
Imago relationship therapy was developed by Dr. Harville Hendrix and his Wife, Dr. Helen Hunt, as a highly effective therapy modality for couples.
The term Imago means “image” in Latin, it is a reference to the “unconscious image of familiar love.” It suggests that there is a semblance between the aggravations couples experience in adult relationships and early life experiences. For instance if one partner was parented with criticism as a child, then he or she will be reactive to criticism in a committed relationship.
In Imago therapy, clients learn how to use the Imago Dialogue, a tool to change the couple’s communication from blame and reactivity to empathy and understanding, promoting healing and growth in a relationship.
