Couples and Marriage Therapy at Humanistic Psychologists of Chicago (HPC)
couples and marriage therapy chicago
At Humanistic Psychologists of Chicago (HPC), we strive to support couples in navigating the complexities of romantic relationships and enhancing their connection and well-being. We offer a range of services tailored to couples and marriage therapy. Here’s an overview of the approaches and interventions we use:
1. Gottman Method for couples therapy:
2. Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) for Couples:
Both the Gottman Method and EFT are grounded in a humanistic perspective, understanding and validating the normal reactions and challenges that arise within intimate partnerships. These approaches acknowledge the innate human desire for secure emotional bonds and emphasize the positive aspects of human relationships.
It is important to note that seeking couples therapy early on, when relationship difficulties arise, is highly beneficial. Waiting until the problems have escalated and caused significant emotional hurt can make it more challenging to reestablish a sense of emotional safety. Therefore, we encourage couples to make an appointment with one of our highly trained psychologists at HPC to begin couples counseling.
