Couples Therapy in NYC & All New York

Does Modern Intimacy Offer Couples Therapy in NYC?

We understand relationships are a fundamental aspect of life. When relational challenges arise, it can be difficult to find your footing. Our couples’ therapists can assist with many relationship issues through couples counseling and marital therapy in New York, NY. Starting couples therapy can be an integral step towards developing and maintaining healthy relationships.


There is nothing wrong with needing outside support from a couple’s therapist in relationships. There is a common belief that people who attend couples therapy are trying one more last-ditch effort to save a relationship. While couples do often come to therapy for that reason, it’s far from the only reason working with a couple’s therapist can be helpful. In fact, ideally, you and your partner can start therapy before it gets to the point where you feel near the end of the relational road.


Many also think couples therapy is solely for fixing problems in order to stop them from occurring again. There is some truth to that, but couples therapy is really about giving you and your partner the tools to navigate relational stuck points together, in a way that supports the relationship functionality as a whole. It’s impossible for most couples to evade conflict completely, so working with a neutral third party can create opportunities to develop productive and healthy ways to tackle life together.


There is no such thing as a perfect relationship because relationships involve people, and people are imperfect. Many couples come to therapy with a promising foundation where trust, safety, and intimacy can be successfully built upon with commitment and patience. Couples therapy is an investment into your relationship, and that doesn’t just apply to finances. Choosing to show up and work towards your relational goals with your partner can be considered a time investment in the security and functionality of your relationship’s wellbeing.
