The most effective couples therapy can require hard work on the part of the couple, and there may be times when it feels like it is not worth the effort. This is due to the enormous complexity of relationships. If you have sought individual therapy in the past, you likely know that making sense of your own issues can be very difficult because your own life is so complex. Making progress in therapy with your relationship partner is not merely a matter of adding one more person to the equation; it can add a significant complexity to the therapy process. To ensure that your effort has the best possible chance of success, it is important to select a therapist with the experience and expertise to understand the complexity of your relationship and someone who connects with you in a meaningful way.
