All meaningful relationships have their ups and downs. At times, it may be helpful to come together as a couple to discuss some of the problems and try to find alternative solutions. At Manhattan Mental Health Services, LLC we aim to provide you and your partner with the support and collaboration needed to make improvements in your relationship. The most important relationships in our lives have a large impact on our overall sense of well-being. If it is not going well, few would argue that it does not also start to impact other areas of your life (e.g. work, parenting, social relationships, school, etc.). Because of this, there are definitely times when improving your relationship could have the impact of improving your life in substantial ways. As is the case with individual therapy, our practitioners are prepared to help you with a wide-range of concerns including (but not limited to): problems with communication, avoiding conflict, difficulty with commitment, differing expectations about relationships, infidelity, etc.
If you decide that couples counseling is a good fit for you and your partner, consider contacting us and setting up an appointment. To set up an appointment please have an idea of what times work best for you and your partner. You will then be asked to fill out the informed consent and initial paperwork (to see these, click here). While we are happy to help you and your partner improve the relationship, please also be aware that we do not perform custody evaluations. Custody evaluations are ideally conducted by someone with experience and expertise in forensic assessment.
