Collaborative Couple Therapy

Collaborative Couple Therapy (CCT), developed by Dr. Dan WIle, is a type of couples therapy that assumes that the main problem is not what the partners are actually arguing about, but rather their inability to help each other through it. The focus of CCT is to help partners turn problems into opportunities for intimacy-to shift out of a withdrawn pattern and into a collaborative one. A collaborative couples counselor can help couples have recovery conversations in which they turn fights and misunderstandings into an intimate and productive conversation.

Many relationship issues stem from an inability for one or both partners to express true thoughts and feelings about the relationship, which can lead to acting in ways that hurt the other partner. My approach to CCT is to help couples learn to view problems and challenges from a more collaborative perspective rather than an adversarial one, and to communicate in a loving and respectful manner.
