    Having a thriving relationship requires a lot of work.

    When you first met your partner, your connection likely felt unbreakable. Oftentimes, we find ourselves disappointed to be in a relationship. It was once thriving but is now hanging on by a thread. The connection you felt with your partner (the feeling of being “in love”) seems to have vanished. Or, it has dwindled almost entirely. Now, you feel as if things are hopeless.
    Our therapists can help you reconnect to your relationship once again. We believe in the value of relationships and family. We’re committed to helping you to restore that “spark” in your relationship that you once felt. According to a study by Dr. John Gottman, couples wait an average of 6 years before seeking help for their relationship.
    Much like a tree can become weathered with age, your relationship needs to be tended to and cared for. Taking the time to improve your relationship can improve your connection. This includes both intimacy and communication.


    Do you feel like you and your partner have the same argument again and again about different things?

    Our couples therapists will help you to identify the emotions behind your reactions. This way, you can become unstuck. A couples therapist can help you create better responses. By doing so, you can free your relationship from unhealthy communication patterns.
    Couples that have completed marriage counseling leave feeling connected and restored. We hope to be able to do the same for you.


    Some of the common reasons people start couples therapy are:

    • Built-up anger/resentment over time
    • Lost connection (fell out of love)
    • Infidelity
    • Affair recovery
    • Blended family issues
    • Impacts of everyday stress on relationships
    • Addiction issues
    • In-law issues
    • Life transition stress (i.e. empty-nesters, retirement)
    • Financial conflict
    • Communication
    Our couples therapists know what it feels like to worry that your relationship may not last. We have sat with countless couples who don’t know how to move forward in their marriage. We have specific training in methods designed for couples. Some of these methods include The Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.


    Our Approach to Couples Therapy in South Jersey

    My Therapy Connection’s approach to couples therapy is to use EFT and Gottman. Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a short-term form of therapy. It focuses on adult relationships and attachment/bonding. First, the couples therapist and client look at patterns in the relationship. Then, they take steps to create a more secure bond. By doing so, they work to develop trust and move the relationship in a healthier, more positive direction.
    The Gottman Method teaches couples to make mental maps of their partner’s world. Thus, helping partners learn how to break through relationship gridlock. This type of couples therapy focuses on developing an understanding and skills so partners can:


    • Maintain fondness and admiration
    • Turn toward each other to get their needs met
    • Manage conflict
    • Enact their dreams, and what to do when they mess up

    Some Reasons People Don’t Reach Out for Couples Therapy

    My partner won’t join me.

    That’s okay. We will share tips on how to communicate how important couples therapy is for your relationship. You are welcome to start couples therapy alone. Sometimes, the changes you make can make a significant difference in your relationship.
