Blacksburg Couples Counseling

Couples Counseling and Therapy in Blacksburg, VA

All relationships go through an occasional rough patch. Some common issues that couples experience include:

  • money struggles or disagreements
  • equality in the relationship
  • sexual problems
  • drifting apart
  • lack of trust
  • poor communication
  • fear of commitment
  • children/parenting disagreements

It is difficult, if not impossible, for people to see themselves or their relationships completely objectively. People often see what their partner is doing and its effects on the relationship. But it’s hard to have evaluate their own actions. Instead of pointing fingers, there is a better way to handle conflict within a committed relationship. Most couples struggling within their marriage or committed relationship will benefit from the input of a skilled, experienced, and unbiased third party – a couples counselor.

The professionals at Thriveworks Counseling Blacksburg, VA have helped many couples recognize and resolve conflicts and improve their relationship. Through counseling, you can make thoughtful decisions about rebuilding and strengthening your relationship or going your separate ways.

Relationship counseling typically includes both partners, but sometimes one partner chooses to work with a therapist alone. The specific treatment plan depends on the situation, and your Thriveworks Blacksburg counselor will work with you in developing a plan, setting goals, and working towards resolution of issues.

How Couples Counseling Can Help

Relationship counseling can help couples in all types of intimate relationships, regardless of sexual orientation or marriage status. Even in a mostly healthy relationship, couples counseling may strengthen the partnership and give each individual a better understanding of the other. The couple can gain a deeper understanding of their relationship, of each other and how best to address and/or accept their differences.

With the help of your Thriveworks Blacksburg relationship therapist, you’ll learn skills to solidify your relationship, such as developing more open communication, constructive problem-solving, how to discuss differences in a reasonable rational manner, and much more.

Should You Seek Couples Counseling?

Many relationships face serious difficulties, but others pursue divorce or separation because they have “simply grown apart.” If dissatisfaction, mistrust, or resentment is keeping your relationship from being the rewarding, supportive, and mutually-satisfying, do not wait to get help. Do not let the downward spiral continue. Relationship counseling has a very high success rate.

You may be wondering if the things you’re experiencing are normal and you’re just over-reacting or worrying too much. But if any issue is impacting your relationship, it is definitely a good idea for you to consider couples counseling. Do any of these issues describe what you’re experiencing currently in your relationship?

  • Has your communication as a couple become mostly negative, or near non-existent?
  • Do you feel that your only reason for remaining in the relationship is for the sake of the children?
  • Does the prospect of having an affair seem less objectionable, perhaps even justified, lately?
  • Has resentment or bitterness become more and more present in the relationship?
  • Does divorce or separation seem like the only solution?
  • Are you, or is your partner, acting out their negative feelings?

If so, couples therapy may be the right next step. We understand that you may be hurting, angry, or scared. Emotions run high when it comes to a significant other, but our counselors are ready to guide your relationship toward the right track. Sometimes the hardest part is admitting that the relationship needs help. But most find the experience to be insightful and empowering.

Thriveworks Counseling Blacksburg

not what I expected

I found the requirement for giving credit card information over the phone to be a little distressing. I wasn't given a very good reason for needing this information before scheduling an appointment. I was also told I needed to pay a $99 fee to avoid cancellation fees IF I needed to ever cancel without 24 hours notice. I found the scheduling staff to be a little pushy and I was already very anxious about scheduling an appointment. I felt like the focus was more on collecting fees than helping people in need. They also don't take any form of medicaid. I also don't like being required to provide my name and email address in order to be able to post a review.
