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 are one of the most rewarding avenues to walk down in our lives. They provide us with a rich source of companionship. They also offer us intimacy and support on levels that we can’t often find anywhere else. Unfortunately, our relationships can also be the source of turmoil, regret, and closed-off communication channels—but couples therapy and marriage counseling can help. 

When you partner with a mental health professional at Thriveworks in Carrollton, TX, you’re providing your relationship with the fighting chance it needs to adapt to life’s changes. Independence is something you might value in your relationship. 

That might mean that therapy seems like you’re giving up. At Thriveworks Carrollton, TX, we don’t think that’s the case. Couples counseling is a way to preserve the integrity of a relationship—something that allows both of you to feel independent in the first place. 

What Is Couples Therapy? 

At Thriveworks, we’ve cultivated an experienced and dedicated team of professionals who can offer couples therapy and marriage counseling to guide you towards a better tomorrow.  Relationship therapy can help you and your partner to: 

  • Develop boundaries for healthy communication 
  • Understand how your actions and words might affect the other person 
  • Regain confidence and physical intimacy 
  • Identify ways to solve problems that you’re both facing—as a team

When it comes to the numbers, statistics don’t lie. Research has shown that 70% of couples who completed relationship counseling found that they enjoyed significant improvements to their relationships. 

Do I Need Relationship Counseling?

While counseling can’t guarantee that any relationship will last permanently, seeking couples therapy with Thriveworks is a great way to give you and your partner the chance to see and hear each other clearly. 

Some indications that couple’s therapy could be beneficial include:

  •     Constantly arguing 
  •     Feeling out of touch with each other’s personal lives 
  •     Feeling as though you can’t communicate with each other 
  •     Unable to agree on next steps like retirement or moving 
  •     Unable to trust each other, or an unwillingness on one partner’s side to seek therapy 
  •     Experiencing sexual dysfunction, including a lack of interest 
  •     Coping with the pain of infidelity
  •     Independently dealing with symptoms of depression or anxiety 

If you are finding that these symptoms describe some of the problems you’re facing at home, turning to the mental health professionals at Thriveworks in Carrollton, TX for relationship therapy could help. Our therapists never aim to divide you both but to offer new ways to communicate and expand your trust and appreciation for each other.
