Case Study: Couples
When John and Sarah came to Untangled Mind seeking marriage therapy, they were struggling with communication and intimacy issues that had been plaguing their relationship for years. They had tried various approaches, but nothing seemed to work, and they were on the verge of giving up.
Piper Harris, a master’s level clinician of Untangled Mind, worked closely with John and Sarah to create a personalized treatment plan that would target their specific needs. After careful consideration, Piper suggested cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), a well-established form of therapy that has been shown to be effective in treating a wide range of mental health issues, including relationship problems. Additionally, she integrated the use of EFT (emotional-focused therapy that is rooted in attachment theory and attachment stylings.)
Over the course of several sessions, John and Sarah learned practical skills for identifying and challenging negative thought patterns hindering their communication and intimacy. They also learned techniques for expressing their emotions in a healthy and constructive manner, which helped them to connect more deeply with each other.
As they progressed through therapy, John and Sarah reported feeling more connected and intimate with each other than they had in years. They were better able to communicate their needs and desires, and they felt more confident in their ability to work through challenges together.
Today, John and Sarah are thriving in their relationship, thanks to the successful use of cognitive behavioral therapy by Piper Harris at Untangled Mind. Their story is a testament to the power of therapy in helping couples overcome even the most challenging relationship issues.
