Dr. Charles W. Washam, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Covington, KY


Object relations couple therapy, grounded in psychoanalytic theory, is the treatment of choice for relationship conflict and communication problems. Relationships begin to break down when the conscious, and especially the unconscious, needs of both partners are not being met. The dysfunction often arises from internal conflicts that both partners bring into the relationship, and these conflicts primarily originate from family of origin issues.
The goal of object relations couple therapy is not simply symptom resolution, but rather it is a fundamental return to an appropriate developmental phase of family life, with improved capacity to master developmental stress; it is an improved capacity to work together as life partners; it is an improved capacity for a mutual gratification when relating intimately; it is an improved capacity to differentiate one’s separateness from one another and to meet the needs of each partner.,
