We at The Counseling and Wellness Center of Pittsburgh understand that nothing is more difficult than experiencing the deterioration of our closest and most important relationships. Whether your relationship has suffered from neglect, inattention, abuse, conflict, infidelity, trauma, or suffering from the effects of from interpersonal anxiety, our therapists are able to help you develop the skills to relate to each other in a more effective way.
We recognize that true conversation differs from talking and listening. Sometimes despite a couples’ staunchest efforts to move in the direction of intimate love, barriers and walls leave them feeling hopeless, helpless, and confused. Couples therapy or Marriage Counseling offers hope and opportunity to regain that once cherished peace, care, and intimate connection. We have modeled our Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) around the development of the skills of mutual exploration, mutual engagement, and mutual empathy. “Making Love as Easy as The Three E’s.” We also emphasize the themes of emotional and physical safety, knowing that we can only care deeply when a an all encompassing sense of safety is present, safety as the pathway to partner trust and bonding. Our therapists know that trust extends beyond fidelity but trusting understanding, trusting each other to respect boundaries, to honor the agreed upon commitment, as well as to respect relationships outside of the loving bond. In this lifetime, love will be our greatest achievement and we have it down to a science, please contact us for more information or the schedule an appointment.
