Rush Excellence in Couples Therapy
- Treatment adapted to you and your partner: Couples therapists at Rush have training in many types of therapy. To figure out which is best for you and your partner, your therapist will spend your first appointment getting to know you. Then they'll recommend strategies based on your and your partner's needs and goals. Whether you need few appointments to learn communication strategies or longer-term treatment, you can find help at Rush.
- Expertise in couples therapy for people with autism: Couples therapists at Rush are experts at working with couples in which one or both partners have autism spectrum disorder. If you, your partner or both of you have autism, we can offer types of therapy designed around your unique needs. We can also connect you with other services through Rush's autism care program for people of all ages.
- A holistic approach: Some couples seek therapy to help deal with the strain of health conditions such as depression or chronic pain. Couples therapists at Rush work closely with other providers who offer care for these conditions. Together, we can create a care plan that addresses your — and your partner's — mind, body and spirit.
- Affirming care for all couples: No matter your gender or sexual orientation, you can find an affirming couples therapist at Rush. Each year, the Human Rights Campaign rates how well the nation's hospitals treat LGBTQ+ patients and employees. Last year, all three Rush hospitals received the highest possible rating. This reflects our commitment to treating all patients equally.
