At the Arizona Center for Marriage and Family Therapy, we believe that the benefits of therapy can be accessed anywhere, even in your own home. One of our goals as a Center is to provide you with the skills and knowledge to strengthen your relationships anytime, anywhere; meaning, whether in session with our therapists or while on vacation with family, we want you to be comfortable and capable of resolving any conflicts as they arise or taking steps to build greater intimacy with your partner. To achieve this goal, we have included articles on every service page (check out our Couples Counseling page for more examples) as well as regular blog posts highlighting topics around mental health, trauma, and relationships. We believe that everyone should be able to have the tools to improve their quality of life and the quality of their relationships, whether they have the time or capacity for therapy or couples counseling. As such, the following is some couples therapy “homework” you can incorporate with your partner today:
Practice reflective listening
Schedule important conversations
Unplug from your phones
Make time to have fun
In doing these things, you can experience some of the benefits of couples therapy at home and gain a deeper connection and greater love for your partner.
