How Does Couples Counseling Work?
Through powerful sessions, you and your partner will gradually experience a new understanding of each other and the issues you face. You will have exchanges that have never happened before, and create new pathways to connection with each other. These healing events will transform your experience of your love, and soothe the fears and anger that maintain the wall between you.
All of our Couples Counseling in Denver is done by therapists who have been trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). EFT is one of only two types of couples therapy that have research that back it up. In fact, 70-75% of couples therapy participants experience recovery, and 90% show significant improvement. This means that out of 10 couples who participate in therapy, seven recover and two more still receive significant benefit. One of our Couples Therapists (Erik Petersen, LPC) also has training in the Gottman Method, another highly respected couples counseling approach. The point is that this is what we specialize in, it’s why we’re here. We know what gets results, and we are eager to count you among the many couples we’ve helped.
“My partner doesn’t think couples counseling will work. He/she is hesitant to even give it a try.”
This is, of course, a normal response to the suggestion of couples therapy. It is not easy to admit when your relationship has a problem, and it is even more difficult to decide to seek help! Starting couples counseling requires a lot of courage. Most of us will remain skeptical about taking that risk until we see results. However, you won’t see results until you give it a shot. The good news is that our evidence-based approach produces visible change quickly. The two of you will have the reins—you’ll be the ones in control of your healing. We’ll just be there to help guide the way.
“My partner is worried that he/she will feel attacked—that you will choose my side.”
This is a common fear for couples entering couples counseling, but the truth is that isn’t how marriage or couples therapy works. We believe that people genuinely try their best, even though it might not seem that way to their partner. The couples therapist is not a judge or a referee. Couples counseling aims to help you and your partner unite against the problematic ways that you are both stuck in your marriage or relationship.
Why Should We Choose A Peaceful Life for Couples Counseling in Denver?
Good question! Many more therapists offer couples counseling than have the training. This means that there are a lot of couples counselors out there who really haven’t been trained well. All of our couples counselors have training above and beyond their graduate program specific to couples, and lots of it. All of them are also licensed and prelicensed, held to the highest professional standards. We have a lot of very satisfied clients, and if it weren’t for how we protect their confidentiality, you’d be hearing about their success.
The work we do is extremely feedback-oriented, and we will consistently check in with you to make sure you are getting what you need in your relationship counseling. Working with us puts you in control. We believe in empowering clients and creating genuine, warm relationships so we can all work as a team and create connections together.

Do you think you could be in an abusive relationship?
Physically violent relationships need a different approach because violence prevents both partners from being able to safely and openly address issues together in couples counseling. This does not mean you cannot get help! You may wonder whether you are in a violent or abusive relationship and whether you could come to counseling alone or with your partner. Set up a confidential, free phone consultation to help you identify and discuss your options for couples counseling.
