Couples Therapy

A strong relationship requires nurturing, just as your personal well-being does. When things get complicated, you and your partner may benefit from seeing a provider who specializes in couples therapy to gain fresh perspective on how to create positive energy within your relationship.

How It Works

Starting with our initial intake, Octave is dedicated to getting you the right fit with an outstanding therapist who specializes in couples therapy. If needed, this can be done alongside individual therapy with another Octave provider.

You and your partner will meet with your therapist for 45-minute sessions, on a schedule that works for you. Together, you’ll design a care plan, and your therapist will track and measure your progress to ensure that you can meet your goals.

Please note: Due to COVID-19, we are offering all sessions virtually until further notice.

Some Common Approaches

Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT)

-

One of the most well-established approaches for couples therapy, EFT focuses on relationships that may be plagued by trust issues, insecurity, or abandonment. It can help people learn how to interact with their partners in more loving, responsive, and emotionally connected ways, which can result in a more secure attachment.

Integrative Behavioral Couples Therapy (IBCT)

+

IBCT focuses on emotional acceptance as the basis for concrete change. It assumes that relationship problems result not just from certain actions and inactions of partners but also in their emotional reactivity to those behaviors. This approach works to build empathy and understanding between partners.

The Gottman Method

+

The Gottman Method focuses on building positive emotions in a relationship, to replace negative emotions such as defensiveness and contempt. This approach builds the couple’s skills in maintaining fondness and admiration for each other, turning toward each other to get needs met, and managing conflict.
