Couples therapy at RICE is intended to help clients improve communication, resolve conflicts, and deepen the level of intimacy and understanding in their relationship. Clinicians collaborate with clients in setting goals and direction for treatment. Through therapy, couples can expect to achieve more clarity, flexibility, and resilience in making wise decisions about what is best for their relationship.
Family therapy is also available at RICE and is often approached from a team perspective, with more than one clinician having therapeutic involvement with the family. Clinicians utilize family systems, psychodynamic, and cognitive-behavioral theory and techniques to help families of multiple configurations stabilize after crisis, deescalate conflict and tension, and increase possibilities for individual members of the family to both grow and stay connected to one another.
