Family, Couples, Intimacy, and Sex Therapy and Pre-Martial Counseling

Family Counseling

Our family affects who we are and who we become, both for the better and for worse. We learn our vocabulary, our habits, our customs and rituals, and how to view and observe the world around us.

Anyone seeking healthier, closer family relationships can benefit from family therapy.

Common reasons for seeking family therapy include:

  • Divorce
  • Parent-child conflict
  • Problems between siblings
  • Domestic violence
  • Unexpected or traumatic loss of a family member

Family therapy is necessary to address family issues and heal a family’s wounds. If any of the above scenarios resonates with your family, consider seeking family therapy. Family therapy can be beneficial on many different levels.

Some positive family therapy outcomes are:

  • Strategies to develop and maintain boundaries
  • Fostered sense of cohesion and communication among family members
  • Promotes problem solving through understanding of family patterns and dynamics
  • Builds empathy and understanding.
  • Reduces family conflict

Studies show that family therapy is particularly important for families with members who struggle with substance abuse, eating disorders and other behavioral issues.  At Cape Coral Therapists, we see family as a whole system.  Thus when the whole family grows, each member is better off.

Couples Therapy

Are you struggling in your relationship maybe because of lack of communication, trust, intimacy, finances, respect, security, and etc… If so, consider couples therapy.  Couples therapy works on breaking down the walls between a couple to help them regain or gain for the first time the strong bond/intimate connection in a neutral environment.  In couples counseling, the goal is to help you and your partner communicate and connect effectively, so that each individual gets to express themselves freely and actively hear the other person.  At Cape Coral Therapists, we utilize a variety of techniques from Gottman Method, Emotion-Focused Therapy, and Temperament Therapy to help couples resolve their relationship issues.   From there, we will work on you all goals and solutions for your relationship, which may include understanding each other’s boundaries, creating a healthy communication pattern, increasing all forms of intimacy, managing funds together, creating a strong co-parenting plan, and learning how to do daily life together effectively. 

Intimacy and Sex Therapy

Are you and your significant other struggling in your connection to one another?   For some reason, that bond or closeness seems to be going away. There is a wall between you two. Intimacy Coaching & Sex Therapy can help, because it is a process to help men and women who are struggling with the issues of love, intimacy, and romance, get the love and relationship they want.

In the Intimacy and Sex Therapy, we will work on breaking down the walls that prevent intimacy through:

  • Exploring each person’s mind, body, and spirit
  • Uncovering each person’s thoughts, beliefs, and emotions that have been unconsciously forming their sexual attitudes and behaviors
  • Learning, understanding, and communicating each person’s needs, wants, and desires
  • Repairing and creating passionate strong bonds that will create and maintain satisfying intimacy.
