Are You And Your Partner Drifting Apart?

  • Is your relationship in a crisis due to a recent infidelity, betrayal or loss in your family?

  • Do you feel a gradual distance growing between you and your partner over time?

  • Have you recently gone through a major life transition such as moving, changing jobs, raising children or making a more serious commitment?

  • Are you frustrated by the way you and your partner communicate?

  • Do you wonder why your relationship doesn’t look like the healthy relationships you’ve witnessed between others?

  • Do you wish you could reignite a loving connection with your partner?

Connection Often Breaks Down With
Life Challenges


It is not uncommon for the bond of a relationship to be challenged during difficult times. It’s possible that either you or your partner(s) have emotionally shut down, making it difficult for each of you to work through a difficult problem or situation. You may wonder: What went wrong? How can we be misunderstanding each other so much? Does this mean it is over? Is there any way to rekindle the bond we once felt?

The truth is that you always have hope to renew your bond with your partner. With the support of a counselor during couples therapy, you and your partner can learn more about each other and regain the security, love and compassion that initially brought you together.

Reconnect With Your Partner With
Couples Therapy

During balanced and innovative couples counseling sessions, one of our experienced therapists will work with you and your partner to help you understand each other’s current needs and develop a personalized plan to strengthen your bond. By offering an objective and non-judgmental perspective, a couples therapist can help facilitate an understanding of how and why emotional safety has been lost and offer guidance as to how to go about creating that again with your partner.

In couples counseling sessions with one of our therapists at the Center for Mindful Psychotherapy (CMP), you and your partner will have the chance to navigate a wide range of individualized approaches to reach out to one another in meaningful ways. Our effective relationship therapy can also provide you both with the tools and skills necessary to strengthen and grow your relationship outside of your sessions.

Here at Center for Mindful Psychotherapy we happily welcome into our practices people in all kinds of relationships including LGBTQ, multi-cultural, poly, kink, and hetero.

Frequent Concerns & Questions

We collectively have really busy schedules and can only see a therapist in the morning/afternoon/evening, do you have a therapist available during that time?

No problem! CMP therapists are available mornings, afternoons, evenings and even on weekends. Please call or email us and more often than not we will be able to match you with a therapist who is available when you are. 

Does CMP honor diversity in relationships?

At the Center for Mindful Psychotherapy we happily welcome into our practices people in all kinds of relationships including LGBTQ, multicultural, poly, kink and hetero.

What makes CMP different?

As a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization, CMP’s priority is not to have you become a client as much as it is to get you with the best possible therapist for you and your partner. If that person is not a CMP therapist, we can suggest alternative professionals. Our priority is to be a healing resource for your relationship. We know how hard reaching out for help can be. We hope we can help make the process easier for you.
