COUPLES THERAPY NEW YORK
Rekindle your love & deepen your bond with couples therapy
DO YOU NEED COUPLES THERAPY?
While couples therapy can be instrumental in restoring balance to relationships in crisis, it can also serve to support, strengthen, and maintain the health of any relationship, no matter the age, race, or orientation. Strong, loving relationships require regular maintenance and daily commitment to clear out the buildup of any unhealthy patterns. Couples therapy can teach you proven techniques to reframe daily challenges and prevent an arising issue from becoming a persistent issue.
LOVE IS NOT JUST A FEELING. IT’S A CHOICE WE MAKE EVERY SINGLE DAY. I CAN HELP YOU WORK THROUGH ISSUES SUCH AS:
- A new child, job, or move
- Issues with trust
- Healing from infidelity
- Financial strain
- Conflict involving in-laws
- Frequent arguments
- Poor communication
- Intimacy problems
- A desire for more openness and greater connection
“Behind every great relationship are difficult and uncomfortable conversations we rarely get to see. Great relationships don’t just fall into our laps. They require people to move through their fears and insecurities and do the hard work to move wounds into healing.”
ABOUT MARY DIORIO | PSYCHOTHERAPIST
Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy
After years of working with troubled relationships, I have found the most effective method to be the EFT method or emotionally focused therapy. This approach is now considered the gold standard for Couples Therapy and I have found it to be the most helpful in getting couples to the root of their problems. The EFT Couples Therapy method has been extensively researched and has proved to be highly effective in therapeutic settings, helping couples to bring to light, and move beyond painful suppressed emotions, change negative communication patterns, and transform past injuries into positive insights and a more intimate bond.
TAKE THE first step
Beginning a course of therapy may seem intimidating. Especially when involving a partner. You might worry that your partner won’t be open or cooperative, or that the therapist will “take their side” or that the sessions will bring up painful issues that lead to arguments and which never seem to get resolved. Rest assured that even if there are some uncomfortable conversations, your sessions will facilitate healing. I encourage you to simply keep an open mind. I’ll support you both through those difficult emotions with empathy, objectivity, and lightness. You don’t need to commit to a lengthy course of sessions. Try one together, and then decide.
