Revolutionizing Couples Therapy for Lasting Relationships

In the ever-evolving landscape of relationships, NuVista Mental Health stands as a beacon of hope and transformation for couples facing relationship difficulties. With a team of highly skilled marriage and family therapists, NuVista offers a sanctuary where couples can navigate the complexities of their relationships under the guidance of expert couples therapists.

Making the choice to go to couples therapy can feel like a very big step.

It involves admitting that things are not perfect in your partnership, which is often hard to do and scary to admit.

We believe that couples therapy should be part of every healthy relationship. Getting started as soon as you notice issues is the most effective way to help repair and rebuild your loving connection.

Couples therapy can help with a number of relationship challenges. The most common can include:

  • Maintain healthy communication
  • Trust has been broken.
  • Arguments are getting more frequent.
  • Communication is poor.
  • Something feels wrong, but you’re not sure what or why.
  • There is something you want your partner to know, but you’ve been unable to tell them.
  • One or both of you becomes dysfunctional during a conflict.
  • You have gone through something devastating that is changing the way you connect with each other.
  • You feel stuck in bad patterns.
  • Emotional intimacy is gone or deeply diminished.
  • Physical intimacy is a problem.

Our Comprehensive Couples Therapy Services

Our goal is to offer therapy in a safe space where you can learn to be vulnerable with your partner about your unmet needs and deeper emotions. We help you learn how to effectively communicate needs and initiate new ways of interacting that can result in a more connected and loving relationship.

Behavioral Couples Therapy

We specialize in behavioral couples therapy, a method proven effective in resolving issues stemming from both partners’ behaviors. This approach helps couples understand and modify their interactions to enhance relationship satisfaction.

Family Therapy

Recognizing that issues within a couple can affect and be affected by family dynamics, we offer family therapy. This treatment is essential when family members’ involvement can aid in resolving relationship issues or when external stressors from the family impact the couple.

Individual Therapy Within Couples Counseling

Sometimes, the underlying cause of relationship distress may be related to one partner’s personal issues. In such cases, we provide individual therapy alongside couples counseling to address these personal health issues or mental health concerns.

Integrative Therapy Sessions

NuVista’s therapy sessions are not one-size-fits-all. We integrate different forms of therapy to provide an authentic and visceral experience that resonates with the unique needs of each couple.

Counseling For External Stressors

We understand that external factors like work, health issues, and social pressures can strain relationships. Our therapists are adept at helping couples navigate these stressors, ensuring that their impact does not undermine the positive aspects of the partnership.
