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?

Just like most things around us, relationships require work and are bound to face some difficult issues at some point or another. How a couple responds to those issues can determine how well both individuals are able to work together when the pressure packs on.

“The nice thing about teamwork is that you always having someone else on your side”
– Margaret Cartyunseling

The overall goal of couples counseling is to unite the couple in mutual understanding of one another and discuss whether certain changes need to take place, and how to commit to those changes. The most common issues between a couple is infidelity, finances, lack of communication, constant bickering/arguing, lack of intimacy, unrealistic expectations, physical or mental health. Couples therapy can prepare a couple for the challenges life brings and how to conquer them as a team.

The inevitable difficult events that couples can endure but not limited to:

  • death in the family
  • financial issues
  • an affair
  • previous traumatic event
  • decrease intimacy
  • lack of friendship

Other issues may be more focused on:

  • poor communication
  • resentment
  • bitterness
  • jealousy
  • frustration
  • anger
  • unforgiveness
  • withdrawn

“It’s us verses the problem, not you verses me” – Author unknown

There is an underlining friendship that should be built under every relationship. With couples, it is how people enjoy each other’s company, feel comfortable being their self, and rely on one another for support. The idea is to tackle circumstances that may be hard to deal with as a team (keeping in mind that both desire the same outcome), rather than turning on each other and losing sight of the underlining concern. If both individuals are willing to address the actual issue(s) that are causing distress, a counselor will be able to work with them in guidance in setting realistic expectations, achieving goals and make changes that are needed.

“Unity is strength, when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved”
– Matte J.T. Stepanek

Couples counseling often involves a therapeutic assessment when the clinician asks some personal questions about their personal histories as well as the relationship history, what roles they each value and how they view each other. By doing so, the counselor gains a more personal understanding of the couple to be able to obtain aspect of the concerning main issues. When the assessment is over, the counselor will reflect his or her understanding of what may need to change and what kind of goal setting that they could benefit. From there, the couple can either agree or reject what the counselor is suggesting. Then once the therapeutic process begins, the couple basically shares the room with the counselor whom acts as a mediator and a guide to build constructive methods in problem shooting, maintaining goals, communication skills and healthy behavioral expressions. After weeding out some of the negative issues that could be harming the relationship, the counselor will focus on building the couple’s strengths and work as a team to overcome issues and life’s difficult battles together.

★★☆☆☆
I initially had a fantastic experience with Thriveworks, and I was thrilled with the service they provided. My journey to find the right therapist was successful, and I happily recommended Thriveworks to friends and family. However, my positive experience took a turn when I discovered that the therapist I connected with does not accept my insurance. Embarking on the path to seek help required a lot of courage on my part, and I fully committed to the process. In just 4 or 5 sessions, I developed a strong connection with my therapist. Unfortunately, the realization that she could no longer continue due to insurance constraints has left me feeling disappointed. Now, I find myself having to start the therapeutic journey all over again, and this has diminished my overall satisfaction with the service.

Sherodle is a fantastic counselor. I’ve learned so much that I use to make my life better. She is easy to speak with, very personable. Not sure about your rating system. I put 5 assuming that is best.
