Therapy focused on relationships and sexuality counseling is a specialized form of counseling that addresses a wide range of issues related to interpersonal connections, intimacy, sexual health, and personal growth.

Together, you'll explore your relationship dynamics, identify patterns, and set goals for improvement. Your therapist will facilitate constructive conversations, provide tools for effective communication, and offer strategies to address issues constructively. You'll work collaboratively to strengthen your connection and move toward a more harmonious and fulfilling relationship.

Occupational therapists possess a unique skill set and perspective that can be valuable in couples therapy. Tanya has completed the training process to become a Certified Sex Therapy Informed Professional, a Certified Sexuality OT, and several additional courses for sexuality counseling and couple's therapy. 

Here's how their skills and perspective can be beneficial:

  1. Holistic Approach: Occupational therapists are trained to view individuals holistically, considering their physical, emotional, and environmental factors. In couples therapy, this holistic perspective can help identify and address issues that may be influenced by various aspects of a person's life.

  2. Communication and Relationship Building: Occupational therapists are skilled in fostering effective communication and building therapeutic relationships, which are crucial in couples therapy to establish trust and open dialogue between partners.

  3. Problem-Solving and Goal Setting: Occupational therapists are adept at problem-solving and goal-setting, which can be applied to help couples identify and work towards specific relationship goals.

  4. Conflict Resolution: Occupational therapists often use conflict resolution techniques in their work, which can be valuable in couples therapy to help partners resolve conflicts and disagreements more constructively.

  5. Assessment Skills: Occupational therapists are trained in assessment techniques, which can be used to evaluate the strengths and challenges within a relationship, helping couples gain insight into their dynamics.

  6. Adaptability: Occupational therapists are skilled at adapting interventions to meet individual needs, and this adaptability can be applied to tailor couples therapy approaches to the unique needs of each couple.
