Couples Counseling

Despite best intentions, sometimes your relationship can be a source of stress rather than a source of support.  Whether you are just dating, newly married, or have been married for years, Dr. Cosmetis works with heterosexual and LGBT couples to help you and your partner achieve greater understanding, connection, and intimacy. Dr. Cosmetis utilizes interventions from Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and the Gottman Method to help you communicate more effectively, manage conflict, and feel more connected emotionally. 

Couples counseling can help you with:

  • Communication problems
  • Intimacy and/or sexual problems
  • Infidelity
  • Control issues
  • Frequent arguing
  • Decreased respect
  • Blended family concerns

Special Premarital Counseling

Premarital counseling is a great way to prepare you and your partner for the next step in your relationship.  Dr. Cosmetis offers a 5-session package, designed to facilitate discussions regarding role expectations, finances, conflict resolution, expressing love and intimacy, parenting, and any other topics that are relevant to your relationship.

Dr. Cosmetis will ask both partners to complete a brief take-home assessment, which will provide information on your strengths and potential growth areas as a couple.  You and your partner will also learn effective communication skills to help you navigate future challenges with grace and ease.

Special premarital price for 5 sessions is $100 per session.  This includes the cost of the assessment tools and feedback.
