If you’re coming to couples therapy for the first time, you probably have some questions about it. Here are some of the basics, with links for further resources: In relationship counseling, you’ll meet with one of our San Francisco marriage therapists once a week for 50 to 60 minutes, or sometimes every other week for 75 to 80 minutes.
Most of the time the sessions will be together with you and your partner, but occasionally your therapist will meet with each one of you individually. You’ll meet in one of our San Francisco counseling offices, depending on the relationship counselor assigned to you – most of our locations are in or around the Financial District.
In the first marriage therapy session, your therapist will get some background information from you and will clarify your goals for working together. Once your goals are clarified, your marriage counselor will work with both of you to identify the strengths of your relationship and how to build on them, and also the challenges you have and how to understand them. Every couple has one or a few underlying patterns that cause most of their challenges.
Once you identify them and know how to overcome them, your relationship can become much easier to manage and a lot more intimate. If you have specific questions, our marriage counselors will be happy to have an initial phone consultation with you.
