Starting Couples therapy

What is couples therapy?

Thriveworks Couples therapy helps couples work through their specific relationship issues. It 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 couples therapy include:

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

How does couples therapy work?

Couples therapy 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 couples therapy 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 couples therapy conducted in person or online?

Couples therapy at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you and your partner.

How long does couples therapy last?

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

Thank you for saving my marriage. We are happier now than we have ever been!”

Derrik and Suzanne have been living together for about a year. For the first few months, everything was awesome. The way Suzanne would leave the TV on and fall asleep on the couch was seen as cute. Derrik’s T-shirt lying crumpled on the floor became the perfect thing to throw on while cleaning.

But recently, their idiosyncrasies are starting to grate on each other. An article of clothing not in the hamper is now considered lazy. The late nights watching TV seems like impenetrable distance. Where did things go wrong? Their relationship used to be carefree. They used to look forward to spending a night in together, but now they’re rarely in the same room. Suzanne was about to start “just looking” on Craigslist at apartments, but came across an article in a local business magazine about a brand new counseling practice. Would counseling make a difference?

Don’t Postpone Your Happiness

Couples counseling can be helpful to each and every committed couple. Research shows that many couples will put off therapy or counseling for years before seeking help. However, there is no need to postpone your happiness.

Thriveworks Atlanta Couples Counseling is designed to strengthen your connection with each other. If you already have a good relationship, therapy provides you with the insights and skills to make it an outstanding one. If your relationship is struggling, therapy promotes understanding and solutions for repair and reconnection.

Here are some of the benefits of couples counseling:

  • Make thoughtful, informed choices with a scientifically-based evaluation of your relationship
  • Build on hidden strengths within your relationship
  • Experience feeling deeply understood by your partner
  • Develop ways to create a sacred bond that withstands external demands
  • Discover the far-reaching, empowering effects of a healthy relationship
  • Learn how you might reconnect deeply, even after an infidelity

Atlanta, GA Couples Counseling is for All Couples

During a lasting relationship, it is normal to face challenges and stressors, as well as many important decisions and growth points. Sometimes couples discover that their ability to communicate and relate deeply has become impaired. Couples counseling can be a way to open up lines of communication and move towards a meaningful understanding of deeper issues. This understanding can, in turn, facilitate new possibilities for resolving difficulties and can intensify the depth of your connection.

Whether you are gay, lesbian, bisexual, heterosexual or transgender, newly dating or in a committed domestic partnership, we aim to offer a safe and confidential setting in which to explore and grow.

We also work with people who are ending a marriage, partnership, or a long term relationship. Therapy and counseling can help people going through this painful process to overcome emotional difficulties and develop the confidence to rebuild their lives.

Here are some of the difficulties that can be solved in couples counseling. Do you recognize any of these?

  • Cheating/affairs/distrust
  • Jealousy/anger/resentment
  • Dependency/Co-dependency
  • Communication problems/frequent arguments
  • Overburdened schedules/disconnection

Couples counseling usually leads to feelings of warmth, connection, increased happiness and overall improved wellness. Sadly, leaving difficulties unresolved often results in worsening strain and decreased health in emotional, social, physical, vocational and financial health domains. Wellness means identifying and overcoming obstacles, not ignoring them and hoping they’ll just fix themselves.

The problem for most couples isn’t that they’ve experienced distress, but that they go without asking for help, Call today and we can help.”

We aim to provide a flexible service tailored to the specific needs of each couple.

I have personally known Nichola Daley for over 15 years and can honestly say that she is one of the most genuine, intelligent, and compassionate people i have met. As a current behavioral health program director and employee of over 10 years, i can honestly say that Nichola develops a great rapport with every individual she encounters and performs well in problem solving and attending to their needs. Optimism and transparency are a few of her strong holds in which is why I strongly recommend her as a great therapist to consult.
