Couples therapy at Emily Cook Therapy will provide you with guidance and tools to improve your connection to your partner. Our couples therapists are specially trained to help couples repair and enrich their relationships. We understand the unique situations that couples can face. Couples therapy can help you resolve emotional and interpersonal struggles.

Our passion is working with couples in couples therapy who are motivated to make positive changes in their lives and relationships. Our Bethesda couples therapists have expertise helping dating, engaged, married, committed, and separating couples. Our practice is LGBTQ friendly.

Your couples therapist will make sure that therapy suits your unique relationship, couple style, and needs. We will talk about what you learned from the family you grew up in and from your past relationships, and explore how those experiences influence your present situation. Your couples therapist will help to highlight cycles in your current relationship and talk about how these patterns keep you ‘stuck’ in conflict and disconnection. We often encourage out-of-session practice so that the insights and skills you learn in the office help you build intimacy and trust at home. Frequently, we will refer to books that extend and deepen our discussion.

Sometimes, couples are not sure whether they’re ready for couples therapy. Discernment Counseling for couples on the brink of divorce provides greater clarity and confidence in decision making about the future of a marriage, based on a deeper understanding of what’s happened in the marriage.
