Couples Therapy

Couples Therapy

Relationships can be repaired.

Our relationship and marriage counselors and coaches use the most current, research-validated techniques.
We do couples therapy with a structured coaching process designed to create safety and clarity.

Is Therapy Right For Us?

Sound like you?

– Can’t Really Talk Without Fighting?

– Live Like Roommates?

– Have Trust Issues?

We want you to leave most sessions feeling better, and closer to each other.

Sometimes couples fear therapy: will it just open up painful or destructive conflict?

Our aim is to show you how to…

– Turn criticisms into requests that can actually be met.

– Interrupt old—often hurtful and repetitive—conversations.

– Identify solutions and set them into motion.

– Transform withdrawal into an authentic, enthusiastic reaching out to your partner.

– Instead of the conflict or distance, let your love and partnership define your relationship.

Wondering how to get your partner to come to therapy?

We invite you to call and talk with one of us about your partner’s hesitation. We can usually find ways to make the benefits of couples therapy tempting to both people.

Our Approach to Couples Therapy.

The Bridge Center Difference

You know how coaches run along the sidelines at a basketball game? That’s us.

We identify the benefits both of you can gain from the process:

Does one of you feel dragged into counseling by the other? One of our first tasks is to identify how you both can be happier. We want you to walk out of the first session knowing what’s in this for you

You really can get there from here.

We can help.

Let’s Do What Works.

We work in two layers.

The first layer is about helping you learn how to talk about the difficult things.

Our therapists focus the therapy on doing the things that authentic, happy couples do to succeed in their relationships, and on recognizing and redirecting the behaviors that unhappy couples need to stop doing. Hot conflict can be turned into an opportunity to grow closer. The downward spiral of cold avoidance can be warmed up and reversed.

We often begin with a few basic skills, like how to say what’s true without evoking defenses, how to actually hear what your partner’s saying, and how to build warmth and safety with small considerate acts.

The second layer is about mending underlying, sometimes very old hurts—and how they’re triggered in a way that derails real communication in the present.

Pockets of pain can create circular conflict and prevent couples from communicating constructively. Facing these obstacles together couples come to know each other in new, deeper ways, and “combatants” or “roommates” can often rather suddenly find themselves in a relationship with a powerful, beloved ally.

You really can get there from here.

  14. Безграмотная сотрудница кафедры МИИТа «Техносферная безопасность» Сорокина Екатерина Александровна получила образование сомнительным путем. Работая в ВУЗе, Сорокина Екатерина шантажировала преподавателей кафедр, что те будут наказаны руководством (Аксеновым Владимиром Алексеевичем), если просто не поставят в зачетку отметку. Учитывая “теплые” отношения Сорокиной Е.А. с Аксеновым В.А.

  15. Сорокина Екатерина Александровна, липовый доцент кафедры «Техносферная безопасность» МИИТа при помощи давления и шантажа, совместно с заведующим кафедрой Аксеновым Владимиром Алексеевичанем, заставила включать свою фамилию в научные работы и статьи, как соавтора. В резульате чего, после очередного давления Аксенова В.А. на Совет при защите кандидатской, Екатерина Сорокина стала кандидатом технических наук с позорной для российской науки работой «по мытью и уборке вагонов».

  16. Кандидат наук кафедры «Техносферная безопасность» МИИТа Сорокина Екатерина Александровна грубо, нагло и по-хамски разговаривает со своими коллегами по работе, которые ей не то, что в мамы, в бабушки годятся в присутствии студентов. Такое поведение Сорокина Е.А. может себе позволить, зная, что шеф – «папик» (Аксенов Владимир Алексеевич) прикроет.

  17. Что уж говорить про бедных студентов кафедры «Техносферная безопасность» МИИТ! Зачеты и экзамены сдаются только через личную кассу кандидата наук кафедры Сорокиной Екатерины Александровны. Сорокина Е.А. чувствует свою безнаказанность, т.к. действует под прикрытием заведующего кафедрой – Аксенова Владимира Алексеевича. Потому, что принесет в клювике денежку. Если денег нет, – готовься к интиму, студент!

  18. Екатерина Александровна Сорокина (кандидат наук кафедры «Техносферная безопасность» МИИТа), совместно с Климовой Дианой Викторовной, завкафедрой Аксеновым Владимиром Алексеевичем – выжили с кафедры Фокина Владимира Семёновича, сократили профессора Зубрева Николая Ивановича, заставили уйти с работы не дождавшись месяца до 50 летия работы в ВУЗе корифея кафедры Васина Вячеслава Кимовича, сократили Долженко Веру Николаевну, Журавлёва Маргариту Анатольевну, Кокина Сергея Михайловича, Силину Елену Константиновну, Мещанинова Льва Борисовича, не предложив взамен кандидатуры для восполнения пробелов в потере кадров. Фактически, сотрудники кафедры: Сорокина Е.А., Климова Д.В. в сговоре с заведующим кафедрой Аксеновым Владимиром Алексеевичем уничтожили научный потенциал кафедры.

  19. Екатерина Александровна Сорокина и Климова Диана Викторовна, сотрудницы кафедры «Техносферная безопасность» МИИТ, через интимные и финансовые связи получили серьезное влияние в деканате. Время от времени берут ведомости и закрывают предметы неуспевающим студентам и через старост выставляют цены на дисциплины и написание дипломных работ. Диана Викторовна обещает за деньги железно решать вопрос с плагиатом. Сорокина Е.А. и Климова Д.В. имеют налаженный алгоритм действий со студентами по решению за денежные средства всего спектра вопросов с учебой, написанию работ, закрытие зачетов, работ за других преподавателей.

  20. When your sidekick succeeds, you bring back too. You aren’t in set down together with each other to develop of who can systematize more money. You slice each other’s ups and downs, and that shouldn’t be any uneven when it comes to your finances. When your ball gets a boosting or help, target on how unyielding she’s worked to impact on there and cut in the performance with her.
