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.

Need more help deciding?

As a couple, Julie and Mark have always felt happy together. When they got married, it seemed like things couldn’t get any better. They’ve been married for 5 years, and they’ve always had a strong connection that was centered around their ability to communicate with each other. When things got unclear or the road got rocky, Julie and Mark could ultimately count on each other to be honest and share their true feelings. 

But lately, things are different. They’ve fallen behind on their mortgage payments, and despite their best intentions, seem to be bound for hard times. Now that there’s the added stress of trying to keep their house, neither partner is able to open up the way that they once did. Blame shifts between both of them, and attempts to reconcile any harsh words simply devolves into an argument. They know they need to work together to figure this one out. But how—when everything seems to be going wrong?

If Mark and Julie’s relationship dynamic sounds familiar, then you’re not alone. Romantic relationships are a source of love, companionship, and personal growth. They can be the closest connections in life, but all relationships go through rocky points. That’s completely normal—problems can arise and start to wreak havoc when partners lose the ability to communicate and respect boundaries. 

What Is Couples Therapy and Marriage Counseling? 

If you and the one you love feel at odds, then you might benefit from seeking couples therapy and marriage counseling at Thriveworks. But: If you’ve never talked to a therapist, let alone seen one for relationship issues, we don’t want you to stress. We get it, relationships are private. Why would you want to let a complete stranger analyze your intimate connection? 

The reason is that couples therapists aren’t interested in judging you or taking sides with either partner. Ultimately, their job is to help both of you see each other more clearly, and learn to: 

  • Communicate clearly and effectively
  • Establish healthy boundaries for yourselves 
  • Recognize the need for compromise and empathy 
  • Find new ways to connect and continue to grow in your relationship
  • Manage the effects of mental health conditions on your relationship, such as depression or ADHD

Seeing a couples therapist isn’t about working to become perfect. It’s about working to become the best version of yourselves you can be. While it can seem like you’re giving up, the point is that your relationship matters more than anything else. 

If you and your partner are considering whether you should see a therapist for your relationship issues, there are a few key indicators of when partners might want to consider attending therapy together, like: 

  • Arguments that last for hours or days 
  • Passive-aggressive or abusive behavior 
  • Inability to respect each other’s boundaries
  • Cheating 
  • Avoiding physical touch or sex 
  • Lying and other forms of emotional manipulation

These warning signs definitely don’t spell the end of a relationship on their own. However, they might be a good indication that you and your partner should consult a professional like the relationship therapists at Thriveworks in Bowling Green, KY.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
