Starting Marriage counseling

What is Marriage counseling?

Marriage counseling, also known as couples therapy and relationship counseling, helps couples work through their specific relationship issues. Thriveworks marriage counseling in Anchorage, AK is led by licensed professionals — often licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFTs) — who are experts in their field and best-equipped to help couples. Some examples of common focuses within Marriage counseling include:

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

How does Marriage counseling work?

Marriage counseling works by helping couples identify and better navigate their unique challenges. Following an initial assessment of the couple in terms of strengths and needs, the therapist would then discuss their therapeutic goals and any possible approaches or ways of working together as therapist and couple.
Couples attend sessions together, whether they meet in person or by video. In addition to regular marriage counseling sessions, each partner may also be asked to attend a few individual sessions to supplement their progress. This will allow their counselor to get to know each individual better, assess each of their personal needs, and develop the very best treatment plan moving forward.

Is Marriage counseling conducted in person or online?

Marriage 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 Marriage counseling last?

On average, couples attend marriage counseling for 12 weeks. However, 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. Marriage counselors and therapists at Thriveworks in Anchorage, AK work with their clients to create goals, decide on ideal timelines, and establish treatment plans.

I am former senior law enforcement officer in western Alaska. I found Behavioral Health Services could absolutely benefit people everywhere. Especially, in remote areas of Alaska. Jenifer Morton has experience and training to assist clients with a wide range of concerns including depression, chemical dependency, PTSD or Trauma related issues just as a few. Alaska needs more professionals with Jennifer Morton’s experience.

Dr Sjofn Weisner is a very kind and caring therapist. She helped me figure out my feelings of being stuck and helped me make decisions that have effectively directed my life in a more positive direction. I've lost weight, started running, I got out of a bad relationship and now am in a good and caring relationship. I'm understanding that i can make better choices in life. This has been thanks to her guidance and genuine understanding and support. She is fully committed to assisting me in achieving my goals with enthusiasm and optimism.

Dr. Sjofn Weisner worked to help me reframe my perspective and access a deeper part of myself that I didn't realize was there. I completed two sessions with Sjofn and was amazed by my results. Sjofn has a very warm, caring, and personable demeanor that radiates through her services. I will definitely continue to see Sjofn for my future sessions.
