Couples therapy, sometimes called counseling or psychotherapy, is a process where the therapist works with couples to identify and resolve issues affecting the relationship. At Vallis, we use a slightly different approach when people seek couples or relationship/marriage counseling. We suggest that each individual in the relationship begins the intervention in their own individual sessions with the therapist. Then, in collaboration with the therapist, the patient will invite his or her partner into one another’s session(s). We feel this hybrid approach allows each partner to prioritize themselves before working through their relationship issues together. Here, the therapist owes primary commitment and advocacy to the individual patient while assisting the patients’ relationship as a treatment goal.  

We are currently only able to accept ages 14 and up.
