Couple/partner counseling provides a private and non-judgmental setting to explore both healthy and challenging patterns of connecting. Only one partner is required to be a currently registered student at UW-Madison.
A few examples of brief, intermittent couple/partner work include:
- acknowledging & respecting lifestyle and intimacy preferences
- improving communication
- navigating relationship changes (e.g. long-distance; breach of trust; parenting)
- exploring collaborative problem-solving and decision-making
Partners should come in together for an Access Consultation. Please identify your mutual availability within UHS open hours to help facilitate appointment scheduling. UHS-Mental Health Services session limits do apply to couple/partner counseling. If you or your partner(s) are in need of longer-term counseling, specialized couples work, or evening hours, UHS can help you find appropriate community resources. In some circumstances individual counseling may be recommended as a precursor to couple/partner work.
