What To Expect When You Go To Relationship Therapy

What To Expect When You Go To Relationship Therapy


Life Coaching and Therapy (LCAT)  is an individual, relationship therapy, and sex therapy practice that transforms our clients lives through our flexible, multi-technique approach and pleasure skills training provided by licensed systemically-trained psychotherapists. 

It’s time to do some reassessing on the relationships in your life and decide what kind of relationship you really want with your romantic partner. If not, you may end up in relationship therapy when it’s too late. 

Relationship therapy can help those with communication issues, desire discrepancy, and those who have a willingness to learn more. 

So…maybe you want a traditional, equal, or open, or kinky relationship? We know that there are a variety of relationship styles, yet how do you attain the type of relationship that you desire? 

Relationship therapy is a great place to begin, because it is discreet, confidential, and balanced. 

How do you go about determining what type of relationship you want? 

Relationship Therapy

Where do you fall on the spectrum above? 

Compare with your partner(s).

This will provide valuable information. 

Once you know what type of relationship you desire, and if all partners are interested in creating that, you can begin to envision piece by piece the steps to get there. 

Some of the plans you can consider, if you don’t want to go to relationship therapy would be a systemic approach (mind, body, feelings, and soul). 

As a couple, it is important to continue to make relationship goals for yourself – that you accomplish as a team! Parenting is one example of how many couples accomplish relationship goals as a team. However, it isn’t quite as specific as relationship therapy for the parts of you that desire erotic and romantic connection. 


Life Coaching and Therapy is competent with and affirming of all relationship orientations and alternative sexualities, including: 


Life Coaching and Therapy provides relationship therapy that is affirming of all gender identities and sexual orientations, including:

  • Lesbian, gay and bisexual individuals and partnerships
  • Queer, transgender, and those individuals and partnerships that are beyond the binary.
  • Partners of transgender and gender expansive individuals


Outcomes To Expect from Relationship Therapy: 

  • Learn constructive conversation skills
  • Decrease resentment and increase self-awareness
  • Increase awareness about sexual pleasure and passion.
  • Be more confident with your partner and in yourself 
  • Become more knowledgeable about your needs vs. your strategies to get needs met that create barriers to progress and pleasure.
  • Support partners in becoming clear about what they themselves want for pleasure and how to be more open to receiving that pleasure. 
  • Understand how culture, cultural identity, and intersectionality are related to your behavioral health and your relationship
  • Discuss how our bias, power, and privilege can affect relationships and come up in relationship therapy with the clinician.
  • Describe how communication styles can differ across cultures. 
  • Discuss ways to learn more about one another’s intersectional identities as a way to bridge the gap between various sexual styles.

Often, relationship therapy is a solution that can provide valuable advice for this relationship, or the next if you have to consciously complete (end) the relationship.

How is your current relationship going?

Does it need a tune-up?

Do you feel more like roommates than partners?

Relationship therapy can help spark a fire!

Some of you may think “what? We haven’t even been together a year! Why would we do that?” Well… for you newbies in NRE (New Relationship Energy), it’s good to set up a foundation of trust.

For those in long-term relationships, what patterns are you stuck in? Distancer / pursuer? High desire / low desire?

You may consider relationship therapy as a way to improve your communication and to call out patterns that lead to chaos.

If you are on the verge of divorce, instead of calling a lawyer, you can utilize relationship therapy to address your concerns regarding:

  • Pleasure and intimacy
  • Emotions and feelings
  • Communication patterns

Relationship therapy can be an effective resource for adults of any age, relationship style, gender, or sexual orientation.

Unfortunately, it is a FACT that most relationships fail.

Do you want yours to be one of them?

Experience relationship therapy in an environment that values sex positivity – an attitude towards human sexuality that regards all consensual sexual activities as fundamentally healthy and pleasurable and encourages sexual pleasure and experimentation.

Many therapists are NEVER trained in sex-positivity so you don’t get the help you need with them.

We have seen it all! If you feel like you can’t find ANYONE that gets it… relationship therapy with L-CAT may be the solution for you.

Bring us your stories around surrounding monogamy, tantra, sex and cancer, polyamory, swinging, bisexuality, intersex, sex and trauma, fetishes and kinks, gay and lesbian relationships, gender identity, transgender relationships, power dynamics, and those that are genderqueer and questioning.

We want you to THRIVE – no matter what!

Life Coaching and Therapy (LCAT) is a relationship coaching and sex therapy practice that transforms our clients lives through our flexible, multi-technique approach and pleasure-skills training provided by systemically-trained and licensed therapists!
