ONLINE COUPLES THERAPY
Online Couples Counseling
Are you a professional couple, remote-flexible professionals, or busy parents looking for virtual couples counseling in San Francisco, California, Los Angeles, or the greater Bay Area? If so, you are like many of our couples at Lovewell. Read on to learn more about the benefits of our virtual couples counseling in California.
Couples often wait until too late to seek intervention and by then, one or both partners may be ready to end the relationship. This may be due to stigma that seeking counseling means your relationship is beyond repair, or simply not knowing what couples therapy is. That's why here at Lovewell, we seek to educate first and make sure our couples understand what couples therapy is, the importance of being clear on goals, and how couples therapy can benefit their relationship.
We encourage preventative counseling (like preventative medicine) as a natural and healthy part of a balanced life and a protective measure for your relationships. Whatever stage of need your relationship is in, from not started, to newly begun, to parenting, to divorce, we can support you, and have supported clients like you before.
Research has shown that couples therapy is effective in changing couple's perceptions of their relationship, altering dysfunctional behavior patterns, decreasing emotional avoidance in one or both partners, improving resilience, and improving communication. Virtual couples therapy, in our experience, has been shown to be just as effective at reaching these goals. At Lovewell, our skilled clinicians blend evidence-based techniques, coaching, and therapeutic interventions to identify patterns and problems, teach new skills, and guide couples towards their goals and greater relationship health.
How Online Couple Therapy Works
Online couple therapy, also known as virtual couple counseling or online couples counseling, has become increasingly popular in recent years. With the convenience of technology, couples can now receive therapy from the comfort of their own home. Online couples counseling offers a range of benefits, including convenience, affordability, and accessibility.Online couple therapy typically involves couples signing up for a session with a licensed therapist specializing in couples therapy. The therapist will then schedule a video call with the couple to discuss the issues the couple is facing in their relationship. The therapist may ask questions to gain a deeper understanding of the couple's dynamics and offer guidance on navigating their challenges.
One of the advantages of online couple therapy is that couples have access to a broader range of therapists, including those who may not be located in their geographic area. Additionally, online therapy may be more affordable than in-person therapy, as there are no transportation or overhead expenses. Couples therapy California is a popular search term for couples seeking online therapy in California. Online couples counseling is legal in California, and couples can access therapy services from licensed therapists.
