Military Family Clinic - Couples Therapy

The Military Family Clinic provides support to couples experiencing relational difficulties, including conflict, sense of disconnection, problems with communication, and others. Although the majority of military families are strong and resilient, stress related to military service may affect intimate relationships, at times leading to serious problems such as domestic violence and divorce. Using Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, their clinicians help couples restore a sense of connection, safety, and intimacy between the partners. Couples do not have to be legally married to qualify for services. 

The Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at NYU Langone Medical Center provides free and confidential individual, couples, family, and group therapy for veterans and their family members regardless of discharge status, combat exposure, or era served. They provide treatment for post-traumatic stress, depression, anxiety, readjustment difficulties, relationship problems, along with a variety of other challenges military families may experience. Additional services include treatment for alcohol and substance use as well as assessment and treatment of traumatic brain injury. Their highly skilled clinicians have deep appreciation for and sensitivity to the military culture and its unique strengths and challenges and are passionate about helping veterans and military families. The treatment provided is flexible and integrative and is rooted in evidence-based principles.
