Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapy used to treat mental health disorders like depression. It can also be used to treat anxiety, PTSD and borderline personality disorder.

Solution Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) is a type of therapy that focuses on achieving goals rather than fixing problems. Using SFBT, a therapist works with you to identify a goal and emphasize the strengths you already possess that will help you achieve that goal. This approach is unique because the focus is not about fixing a specific problem, but about working towards your desired outcome. Rather than a question of if change will happen, SFBT asks when change will happen.
Relationships take work. Even in healthy relationships, partners will argue or disagree from time to time. This is completely normal, regardless of how long you and your partner have been together. Sometimes, the challenges you face as a couple can become more than both of you can handle on your own and couples therapy is needed to help you resolve your differences.
Relationships take work. Marriage is no exception.
While disagreements are common and unavoidable, it’s important to know when you and your partner may need the help of a marriage counselor. Couples therapy, family therapy and marriage counseling can be successful for couples who are willing to address their differences and challenges. It’s important to note that separation and/or divorce might be the healthiest option for some couples. Whether you are looking to stay together or figuring out if your relationship is one worth continuing, marriage counseling can work for you and your partner in a number of different ways.
