Fostering Connection in Intimate Relationships

Experts in Couples and Marriage Therapy

Discover the PBH Difference

Couples can easily become consumed by their lives and avoid discussing concerns about the relationship.  You might be distant, avoid talking about problems, and feel disconnected.

We work with each person in the couple to mutually understand needs.  We build upon the strengths of the relationship while addressing communication, sexual closeness, and difficulties with intimacy that often impair emotional connection.

Common Reasons Couples May Seek Therapy

 

Reconciliation Therapy for Infidelity or Sexual Compulsivity ("Sex Addiction")

The pain of infidelity, impulsive or compulsive sexual behavior ("sex addiction"), and pornography conflict strike at the very foundation of the relationship.  When betrayal is present, there is a fracture of trust that will not heal on its own.

 

Rebuilding trust requires transparency, consistency, emotional authenticity, and genuine growth and change. Having empathy for your partners pain is crucial to healing the relationship. Your partner needs to know that you understand the trauma that your behaviors have caused them and feel remorse.

 

We understand the complexity of issues surrounding the disclosure of sexual secrets, the damage of lost trust, the struggle to develop true intimacy, and the pain and isolation stemming from the shame of sexual betrayal.
