Who Will Benefit from Couples Counseling in San Jose?

Any couple can benefit from couples counseling San Jose.  Often, couples who believe that their relationship warrants counseling, conclude that it is a bad sign and they should consider breaking up.  This isn’t the case.  Many couples pursue couples counseling for positive reasons such as the desire to create healthy relationships or enhance communication skills. The length of couples counseling can vary.  Some couples might need a handful of sessions to put them on the right track. Others are in crisis and require more attention and work.  However, with the right therapist and effort from the couple, they can find hope for their relationship and solid-lasting love.

What Kinds of Problems are Addressed in Couples Counseling San Jose Ca?

Couples Counseling with Best San Jose Counselor


People seek therapy for a range of problems. Every situation and couple is different. The aim is to help the couple gain a better understanding of themselves and their partner and to decide if they need and want to make changes. If so, the therapist will help guide them to those needed changes.

Some of the common complaints we see at couples counseling in San Jose Ca include:

  • Poor communication
  • Unspoken expectations
  • Unmet emotional or physical needs
  • Financial concerns
  • Frequent arguments
  • Parenting issues
  • Sexual and intimacy issues
  • Trust issues

Couples will pursue couples counseling not because their problems are unique, but because they are having difficulty resolving them in a healthy way. When problems are not resolved in a healthy, timely, manner, the consequences such as disappointment, bitterness, and anger, escalate into more serious issues like resentment, hatred, and rage.  This form of escalation can be avoided! Mediocrity and dysfunction can be alleviated if couples counseling is sought sooner than later, and as a result, a loving, lasting, and life-giving relationship can be attained.

Are Couples Counseling Like Sex Therapy?

Couples Counseling Like Sex Therapy

There is a difference between couples counseling and sex therapy. Couples counseling focuses on the relationship (emotional, physical, spiritual, and financial) while sex therapy deals more specifically with sexual dysfunction and or challenges with sexual intimacy.

They do interrelate. When a couple has other problems, such as trust issues as a result of infidelity, these issues impact the quality of their sex life as well as the emotional well-being of the individual.  If that is happening, couples counseling will require a longer commitment and an assessment of whether a form of addiction is present.
