Brooklyn Couples Therapy

The equilibrium of a family system can be altered by changes or stressors. Life changes and stressors such as financial loss, illness, new baby, infidelity, grief and trauma can influence the balance. Stressors can affect communication, connection and being able to enjoy relationships with one another.

At times, individual members’ experiences can influence the whole system. Couples and family therapy can help resolve conflicts, improve communication and bring families and couples a more profound connection with each other. Therapy can help you to recognize your role in the family system and your influence on any conflicts. It can also build a deeper intimacy and understanding of oneself and other family members. Therapeutic processes can help improve your sex life and overall enjoyment of life.

Premarital Counseling: Preparing for a Strong and Healthy Marriage

Premarital counseling is a proactive step that can help couples prepare for a strong and healthy marriage. Relationships can be complex, and premarital counseling provides an opportunity for couples to work through any potential challenges and build a solid foundation for their future together.


In NYC, couples can access a wide range of counseling services, including couples therapy and marriage counseling. These services are provided by licensed therapists who specialize in working with couples and families. With the help of a therapist, couples can learn about each other’s expectations, work through any differences, and improve communication skills.

Family therapists in NYC can also provide premarital counseling. With their expertise in relationship dynamics, family therapists can help couples navigate the complexities of relationships and build a strong foundation for their marriage. Whether you are just starting your relationship or have been together for years, premarital counseling can be a valuable tool for preparing for a successful marriage. Our therapists are trained in providing a supportive and non-judgmental environment for couples during couples counseling
