Couple’s therapy involves two people in an intimate relationship who are having difficulties and are trying to resolve them. The couple may be dating, partnered, engaged, or married. The primary therapeutic orientation used in couples counseling is cognitive-behavioral therapy (Rathus & Sanderson, 1999). Couples meet with a therapist to discuss conflicts and/or aspects of their relationship that they want to change. The therapist helps them see how their individual backgrounds, beliefs, and actions are affecting their relationship. Often, a therapist tries to help the couple resolve these problems, as well as implement strategies that will lead to a healthier and happier relationship, such as how to listen, how to argue, and how to express feelings. However, sometimes, after working with a therapist, a couple will realize that they are too incompatible and will decide to separate. Some couples seek therapy to work out their problems, while others attend therapy to determine whether staying together is the best solution.

What Clients are Saying
Psychological Assessment and Treatment Services, LLC has been wonderful in helping our family through a difficult divorce. They treated our family with the highest level of care.
We first came to P.A.T.S, more specifically Dr. Odio, a few years ago for help for our autistic teenage daughter. Our daughter had always had issues, but she was then experiencing very high daily anxiety, along with intense OCD behavior.
