Starting Couples & marriage counseling

What is couples & marriage counseling?

Couples therapy and marriage counseling, also known as relationship counseling, helps couples work through their specific relationship issues. Some examples of common focuses within couples therapy and marriage counseling include:

  • Jealousy
  • Trust issues
  • Infidelity
  • Opposing values
  • Different visions for the future
  • Disagreements in parenting
  • Lack of trust
  • Financial distress
  • Sex issues

What type of therapy is used in couples therapy?

The types of therapy used in couples and marriage counseling include:

  • The Gottman Method
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Emotionally-focused therapy (EFT)
  • Solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT)
  • Strength-based therapy

What kind of therapist is best for couples?

At Thriveworks, Couples & marriage counseling is led by licensed professionals — often licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFTs) — who are experts in their field and best-equipped to help couples.

What is the Gottman Method of couples therapy?

The Gottman Method of couples therapy is a research-supported approach designed to enhance relationships by bolstering the bond between partners, resolving conflicts, and fostering shared meaning in their relationship through comprehensive assessments and tailored interventions that improve communication, trust, and the overall health of the partnership.

How to tell if I need couples therapy?

If you’re facing persistent relationship problems, communication breakdowns, or unresolved conflicts that are impacting your emotional well-being and happiness, Couples & marriage counseling may be beneficial for you.

Should every couple go to couples therapy?

While marriage and couple’s counseling is typically recommended for couples who are experiencing persistent or severe relationship issues, any relationship can benefit from attending these sessions.

Is couples & marriage counseling conducted in person or online?

Marriage and couples counseling at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and online by video. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you and your partner.

How long does couples & marriage counseling last?

On average, couples attend marriage and couples counseling for 12 weeks. However, couples & marriage counseling may last longer or shorter, dependent on the couples’ needs, the challenges they’d like to work through, and the pace of their progress.

How much does couples & marriage counseling cost?

At Thriveworks, we take most major forms of insurance, which means that many of our clients only pay $0-$50 co-pay per session. However, there are also self-pay options that sit around $200 per session, depending on the service and location, for those who are out-of-network.

Need more help deciding?

Relationships often start out happy and exciting. The couple is deeply in love: they enjoy getting to know each other, spending time together, and exploring new experiences. This time period is often known as the “honeymoon phase.” Sometimes, when this phase comes to an end, a couple is met with significant obstacles.

Once you’ve gotten past the honeymoon phase, you might start to notice things you didn’t before. “My partner keeps putting the dishes in the dishwasher wrong, no matter how many times I correct them.” “Every time I make dinner, my partner doesn’t show appreciation. It’s like they expect me to just do this for them.” Why doesn’t my partner understand that I have to stay late at work so I don’t fall behind?”

When little things start to build up and get under your skin, it’s a recipe for disaster. So whether you need help communicating with your partner or you’re both trying to overcome something like infidelity, marriage counseling or couples therapy can be the answer you need.

Thriveworks Counseling in Albuquerque, NM works with only the most qualified and compassionate mental health professionals. No matter what relationship challenge you’re facing, they can help. Call or book online to get started today.

Do We Need Marriage Counseling or Couples Therapy?

Cody Hedrick is an outlier on the bell-shaped curve of therapist expertise. He is direct, sharp, well-informed and likable. He studiously avoids labeling and jargon, hippie New Age perspectives, and regular old BS. Her has a way of getting to the point with the fewest number of words with great clarity and directness. I highly recommend him to men young and old for one-on-one work on your relationship with yourself.
