Therapy for Couples

Couples counseling can help with a variety of concerns throughout the entirety of a relationship. Working with a therapist who specializes in couples therapy/counseling can help couples deal with specific relationship issues (like infidelity or becoming empty nesters), strengthen their bond in general, and communicate and express their respective opinions and emotions.

 

Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP)

Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP) is a form of cognitive behavioral therapy used to reduce anxiety through gradual exposure to fears. People learn to identify triggers and refrain from partaking in obsessive thoughts and unhelpful coping mechanisms. You’ll find mental health professionals who specialize in ERP listed below.
