Couples Counseling in Sacramento County

Almost all couples experience conflict occasionally. However, when conflict occurs often and responses become unhealthy, conflict within a relationship can negatively affect your mental health and jeopardize a once-happy relationship.

Once tension has found its way into your relationship, you may find it difficult to regain a sense of stability and happiness on your own. You may also find you and your partner returning to the same issues and conflicts over and over. In these cases, couples counseling offers an effective path forward for both parties.

At Advanced Psychiatry Associates, you will have the opportunity to work with mental health professionals who specialize in marriage and family therapy. Together, you can gain insight into patterns of behavior, mend emotional bonds, resolve conflict and learn to manage mental health disorders within your relationship.

Relationship Counseling for Couples in Sacramento

Many people believe couples therapy is only for people whose relationships are in crisis. In reality, couples counseling can benefit anyone involved in a romantic relationship, regardless of age, sexual orientation or background. At Advanced Psychiatry Associates, we offer counseling services for dating, engaged and married couples in Sacramento County, as well as couples with children.

Couples counseling shares similarities with individual psychotherapy and counseling. However, instead of working one-on-one with a therapist, you and your partner will attend counseling sessions together. Depending on your needs, couples therapy may focus on a specific issue within the relationship or help uncover the root of general difficulties. Counseling typically consists of discussions with a therapist and active practice during and between sessions.

Some common concerns couples come to therapy to address include jealousy, infidelity, sex, money, infertility, parenting differences and emotional distance. However, some couples come to counseling with no specific issues in mind.

Managing Mental Health Within a Relationship

The team at Advanced Psychiatry Associates is uniquely equipped to help couples whose relationships have been impacted by struggles with mental health. Individuals can learn to manage their mental health within their relationship and receive individual treatment for mental health disorders outside of couples and marriage therapy, if needed.

We know that mental health disorders can cause strain in relationships and disconnection between partners. Addressing underlying mental health concerns can help ease some of the tension and lay the foundation for a stronger relationship over the long term.

We have extensive experience treating anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, OCD and other conditions through psychotherapy and medication management. When you come to us for couples therapy in Sacramento, you will receive all the services you and your partner need in one location.
