Hi, Thank you for your question. Yes there is couples therapy and that would be referred to as couples counseling or marriage counseling. There is also group therapy that can be for various types of relationships. Please let me know if you have any further questions. Thanks

Expert:  Dr. Norman Brown replied 3 years ago.

You're asking about couples therapy on this site. There are some good couples therapists here, and I am one of them. I can get you started with couples therapy, and after initial discussions I can determine if you can be helped enough by this online method, or if you will need to see a therapist in person. Since I've been licensed for marriage and family therapy since 1976, it's very likely that I can give you as good a first session as you could get in person, and this will cost you a lot less. Then I will advise you on how much further we can get with this method and the advantages (anonymity, so nobody knows who you are, no matter what you write) and limitations it has (both partners in your couple are not online with me).

 

So if you want to discuss your issues with a licensed professional who also knows what can and cannot be achieved online, tell me what your main issues are, and I'll let you know whether I'm well qualified and suited to help you, or someone else here, or another avenue altogether would be better.
