Get care from the people who care.

Our caring experts will develop a personalized plan just for you and your partneror spouse to help stop feelings of loneliness, sadness, anxiety, and anger. Instead of your fears and insecurities being reinforced in your relationship, you can increase the satisfaction and joy with the person you love most.
Who we are

We have a team of expert, licensed therapists specializing in the needs of LGBTQI+ couples.

During these unprecedented times, even the best relationships are being strained, and some are beginning to crumble. What before may have been slight cracks in the foundation of a love relationship are now becoming full-scale breaks.

After the end of three challenging years of the pandemic, a return to a more  ‘normal’ life may have led you to re-evaluate where your relationship stands. 

If you’ve felt like being with your partner or spouse is more like a prison rather than a refuge, you’re not alone.

We’ve all been feeling more challenges in our lives, especially with roller coaster news headlines, and your relationship may be bearing the brunt of this stress. It’s probably crossed your mind more than once that you may need to get help for your relationship before it’s too late.

Let's turn things around, before it's too late.

You and your relationship deserve better. Rebuild the foundation of your love so that you can feel safe, loved, and heard.

GayCouplesTherapy is not your cookie-cutter couples therapy. It is a proven program designed to give you the steps you and your partner/spouse need to rebuild your relationship, one step at a time.

Rebuild the Ties that Brought You Together

Remember what it was like in the beginning of your relationship? Most likely, falling in love with your partner or spouse was one of the best “highs” you’ve had. Is it too late to feel that again, with the same person? It doesn’t have to be. 

To repair and rebuild your relationship, we use the Loving at Your Best Plan, the only gay couples therapy in New York that integrates the top, evidence-based couples therapy models into one effective approach. Staying happily “in-love” doesn’t have to be guess work: the science of love has now taught us what makes a relationship stay loving, and how to make it last–and not just for straight couples.
