​Relationship Therapy for All Types of Love

Marriage Counseling in NYC

Couples in any stage of their marriage could find relationship counseling helpful for growing their relationship and resolving conflicts in healthy ways. Whether you and your partner want to improve your communication skills and explore your individual needs and desires, or you want to establish healthy boundaries or better understand your relationship patterns, we can help.

LGBTQIA+ Couples Therapy

Couples in the LGBTQIA+ community may sometimes have trouble finding a therapist who can help them address conflicts and issues without fear of judgment. However, Insight & Action Therapy offers LGBTQ couples therapy in NYC that is designed to help them navigate potential conflicts. We do so by understanding the needs and concerns of each person in the relationship to help them address issues holistically.

Lesbian, bisexual, asexual, queer, and gay relationship therapy can help couples across all gender or sexual identities foster stronger relationships.

Polyamory Therapy

Ethical non-monogamy is an informed choice involving all parties in the relationship, and thus is not the same as infidelity. For many, it’s an indelible aspect of their identities. However, navigating the beginnings and stages of a polyamorous relationship can be challenging without the aid of a professional, external mediator such as a therapist.

At Insight and Action Therapy, our relationship therapists can support those in polyamorous relationships with conflict resolutions, parenting challenges, financial strain, and other issues in healthy ways. We can also help those in polyamorous relationships navigate issues that are more unique to their situation, such as:

  • Establishing and navigating personal and relational boundaries

  • Safe-sex practices

  • Communication skills

  • Addressing potential jealousy or feelings of neglect

Pre-Marital Counseling

At Insight & Action Therapy, we’re happy to help couples foster healthy relationships before they exchange their vows. Our therapists specialize in customizing their approach to therapy to provide opportunities to understand your relationship, including past experiences and important issues that can affect your marriage. This allows you to prepare for married life and better understand each other for a long, healthy relationship.

Intersectional Couples Counseling

No matter what type of cultural, racial, or religious backgrounds you and your partner come from, your relationship does not exist in isolation. Insight & Action Therapy provides intersectional couples counseling that takes into consideration all the different parts of yourselves and your relationship—and how those factors interact with each other.

10 Signs You May Benefit from Relationship Therapy​There are always opportunities to learn, develop, and explore skills and insights that make your relationships healthier, but you may also notice some indications that your partnership could use relationship therapy. Here are some signs that you could benefit from seeking relationship therapy online or in person:​

Communication problems: Difficulties in effective communication can lead to misunderstandings, conflicts, and breakdowns in intimacy. Oftentimes, relationship therapy in NYC focuses on improving communication skills, active listening, and the ability to express needs and feelings in healthy ways.

Conflict resolution: Therapy can help couples who are struggling with resolving disagreements in a healthy, productive way. With the help of a relationship therapist, couples and individuals can develop conflict management strategies, find compromises, and prevent disputes from escalating further.

Intimacy issues: Concerns relating to physical and emotional intimacy are common issues that couples counselors can address. This includes a lack of closeness, changes in sexual desire, difficulties expressing vulnerability, and trouble setting and respecting boundaries.

Rebuilding trust: Betrayals and breaches of trust can severely strain or harm a relationship. Relationship therapy can provide a structured environment for rebuilding trust, addressing underlying issues, and fostering open communication to strengthen the relationship

Parenting challenges: Parenting—including differences in parenting styles—can cause stress in a relationship. Couples therapists can help parents address conflicts over discipline, challenges balancing individual and family needs, and other dynamics.

Financial strain: Money and finances are at the root of up to 40% of separations or divorces. Relationship therapy can help couples address disagreements over money, financial priorities, or other financial issues and develop strategies for managing them.

Life transitions: Job loss, relocation, the birth or adoption of a child, and retirement can all impact a relationship. Couples therapy assists with navigating these transitions and adapting to new circumstances in healthy ways.

Cultural or religious differences: Intercultural or interreligious couples can face unique challenges relating to their backgrounds. Relationship counseling can help these couples navigate their differences, foster mutual respect and understanding, and accept differences in the context of their families and loved ones.

Loss/grief: Coping with the loss of a loved one can cause strain in relationships. In turn, therapy can support couples as they navigate the grieving process together and support each other emotionally.

Lack of emotional connection: Emotional disconnection in a relationship can lead to feelings of loneliness or dissatisfaction. Therapy can help individuals reconnect both in their relationship and with friends outside of it, fostering a stronger sense of closeness.

Individual struggles impacting the relationship: Personal struggles like mental health issues, substance abuse, or trauma can affect the dynamics of a relationship. Therapy can also help individuals and couples address individual issues that contribute to challenges in their relationship.

Insight & Action Therapy’s Approach​

At Insight & Action Therapy, we believe relationship therapy can be an effective tool for improving relationships between couples and individuals, leading to positive outcomes and improvements. As no two relationships will experience the same issues in the same way, we aim to offer individualized, customized approaches to couples therapy.

It is important to note, however, that couples therapy is not a one-size-fits-all solution for every relationship. Outcomes can vary based on the unique circumstances of each relationship. Additionally, there may be situations where therapy is not effective, such as situations involving abuse or when one or all partners are unwilling to engage in the process.
