Relationship Therapy, Couples Counseling and Marriage Therapy in Cincinnati, OH

Because it’s not as easy as it looks…

What’s difficult about relationship counseling is that you have to admit there’s a problem. There’s a lot of guilt and shame that can get wrapped up in that thought. It can feel easier to push the thought away than to actually address it. But, did you know that the average couple waits 6 years before seeking help for relationship problems? Many clients share that they wish they would have come in much earlier. We get it. Sometimes, taking that first step can feel paralyzing.

What is Relationship Therapy?

Our approach to relationship therapy…

Our clinicians are all trained in providing high-quality couples therapy and helping clients with different relationship dynamics. You may be dating, about to get married, have been married for 60 years, or have a more alternative relationship. Regardless, we are here to meet you where you’re at.

Our team of relationship therapists start couples counseling by discussing your unique relationship history and listening to the current concerns you’re experiencing. Then, we determine a course of treatment based on your needs and concerns as a couple.

Working on your relationship(s) may be hard, but the reward is worth it.

Relationship therapy requires individuals and couples to be engaged in their therapy sessions. You will be asked to identify your needs and wants and will be asked to share concerns. Your therapist will also give you tools and strategies to use when challenges arise outside of counseling sessions. This requires commitment, but our hope is that you will find it worth it!

As relationship therapists, we’ve seen couples come in who have hit rock bottom. After counseling their relationship comes to life and thrives. The couple is able to experience a profound and intimate connection. We are trained in Gottman Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT), Family Therapy, Sex Therapy, and Prepare-Enrich for premarital counseling. We also have training in working with alternative relationships such as polyamory, open relationships, and exploring opening relationships.

Common Reasons Partners Begin Relationship Therapy:

  • Communication problems
  • Lack of intimacy (not just sexual intimacy)
  • Affair recovery
  • Differences in core values
  • Premarital counseling
  • Divorce
  • Emotional disconnect
  • Absence of shared experiences
  • Feeling like roommates
  • Sexual challenges
  • Relationship enrichment
  • Navigating non-monogamous relationships
  • Empty nesters
  • Infertility
  • Intimate partner violence
  • Newlyweds

Our relationship therapists are committed to helping individuals and partners in all kinds of relationships…

At Hey Emma we are LGBTQ + affirming and are inclusive to all types of identities and relationship statuses. What is important to us is that we create a non-judgmental space for you to work through and work on whatever is creating distress in your relationship.

Why relationship Therapy?

Every relationship can use a little help…

Engaging in relationship counseling with your partner can provide a nurturing environment to explore any major issues or concerns within your relationship. The goal and purpose of relationship counseling is to provide a safe space for individuals to express their feelings, thoughts, and concerns.

Seeking relationship counseling may also be preventative. Some individuals seek counseling prior to having any major problems. Usually, this happens prior to that 6-year mark. Seeking relationship counseling can be a sign of growth and understanding that a relationship constantly needs work and is constantly evolving.
