Couples coaching

Has your relationship become overwhelmingly difficult?

How do you still find the love when…

  • you’ve been arguing for years with little agreement?
  • found you can’t really talk to one another?
  • become bored with one another or find yourselves in a holding pattern?
  • had little sex in a long time or mismatched desire levels?
  • discovered a recent betrayal, or
  • you’ve thought “why can’t we be like we used to be?”

Factors of everyday life can put a strain on a relationship. Couples can become stuck, rigid, even resentful.

Severe stressors like intimacy issues, lack of trust, parenting differences, long-term miscommunication or even infidelity can significantly impact a relationship. When problems go unresolved or if one partner is suffering from mental, emotional or physical health complications, you can feel helpless, even suffer from feelings of guilt or shame.

Would You Like to Enjoy Your Relationship?

Relationship tension can happen from simple misunderstandings that can lead to long-term, unresolved issues.

Relationship tension often occurs when:

  • partners stop being curious about the needs and wants of one another,
  • partners feel as if they already know everything they will ever know about the other,
  • partners feel as if they are clearly communicating, but their significant other “just doesn’t get them any longer,”
  • partners feel unable to ask questions or respond without feeling blamed or defensive, criticized or overwhelmed,
  • partners think they have little value, feel tired of butting heads or not being heard.

Instead of feeling stuck or overwhelmed, communicating more effectively can be the best game changer for a long and enjoyable relationship.

Bi-Weekly Couples Coaching Lets You Enjoy Your Relationship

Meeting bi-weekly provides you, over time, with the tools for sharing what you need and want with significantly less defensiveness, anger, or fear of criticism.

Using customized resources, you and your partner concentrate on learning specific ways to communicate that will help you reduce and/or release resentments and anger.

You will walk away with a greater understanding about yourself, your partner, your triggers (and why they occur).

You will deeply dive into your relationship, learning and practicing research-based, effective techniques and tools to help you and your partner create a new sense of connection.

Yes, relationships can be difficult, even overwhelming, but with motivation and a willingness to do what it takes to succeed, you can feel heard, be able to empathize with your partner and enjoy your relationship!



Q: Do all therapists provide bi-weekly couples coaching?

A: Not all therapists have the specific training necessary to work with couples. Prior to selecting someone to work with, research therapists and their experiences. My work is heavily influenced 

by Dr. Ellyn Bader, Dr. Peter Pearson, and The Developmental Model.  You can learn more about that approach here.

Q: Is there a guarantee bi-weekly couples coaching will work?

A: Yes and no. If you are motivated to learn new techniques, are ready to recognize how you each play a role in the joy and the pain of your specific relationship issues and are eager to practice with your partner in-between sessions, I guarantee you significant growth. As with most things in life, what we put into something important to us is what we gain from it.

Q: What if my partner is unsure about couples coaching?

A: Before beginning couples work, you and/or your partner will be asked to complete a short set of questions about your issues and time availability. I will review your responses and possibly ask you both to meet for a complimentary consultation. At that time, it would be great to hear why your partner may feel unsure. That way, we can better decide if doing couples work at this time is best and if what I offer is the best fit for you.

Q: Can bi-weekly couples coaching be done virtually?

A: Yes, but meeting in person would be my first choice. Meeting in person allows for much better control over technology (yours and mine). Meeting in person allows you to get away from your usual environment. Meeting in person lets you and your partner temporarily retreat into your session(s) without the usual distractions. Meeting in person makes you both the primary focus, without pets, children, grandchildren, knocks at the front door or other home-related disturbances.

Q: How can we get started?

  • "Couples work with Andrea Tang has been immeasurably helpful to our relationship. Our communication with each other has gotten so much better and helped us grow stronger as a couple. I would recommend this to any couple at any stage in a relationship."
    A.M. & K.M.
  • "Couples counseling with Andrea has helped our marriage immensely. We’ve been able to identify our own individual issues and talk through things as they happen. We learned how to communicate more effectively as a team and move our marriage in a positive direction. We wouldn’t have made it through our crisis without it."
    J.C. & T.G.
  • "Andrea is an amazing therapist who has always gone above and beyond to help my husband and me make the most of our time with her. She validates both of us without ever taking sides, which makes all the difference in the world. She is in it for us and has shown us how to be in it for each other, again. We were on the road to losing that and needed her help us get it back. We have learned how to communicate through well thought-out "role plays" that Andrea has created for us. The "ah-ha" moments happen without having to "spell out" every issue. It has been life changing for us as a couple and as individuals."
    B.M. & S.M.
  • "What an incredible and eye-opening experience we had doing a two-day intensive couple’s therapy session. Andrea is an incredible human, and I am so gracious to have crossed paths with her. She is very welcoming, has an amazing aura and comfort to her that you do not find in many. She helps you dig deeper within yourself to address certain issues. She is not only understanding but helps you get to the root of different issues with ways to manage and overcome them that you can easily tie into your daily life with some practice."
    J.S. & D.R.
  • "Andrea is a fabulous and engaging human being that honored, respected, and counseled me through some very emotional and sensitive issues. Andrea didn’t just impress me with how quickly she got to “the bottom” of my issues but touched a part of me that will be changed forever."
  • "If you are serious about seeing someone to help you work through some issues, Andrea Tang is the one! It has been awesome to work with Andrea because she is personable, approachable, non-judgmental and does not have that "mightier-than-thou" air about her. She is supportive and has a sense of humor too. Andrea is fully committed to helping you enjoy life in a healthier place."
