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?

The scholar Max Muller once stated, “A flower cannot blossom without sunshine, and man cannot live without love.” Sure, we can survive without feeling the sunlight of love shining both inside and out, but is that really living? The love between two people is a unique opportunity to feel and grow to our fullest potential. We can become the best version of ourselves through loving another person. 

That being said, love isn’t all sunshine and rainbows and personal development. It’s also very difficult because our emotions are so exposed and vulnerable in love relationships. So what do you do when the going gets tough? You get some professional guidance from a relationship expert.

The licensed couples therapists and marriage counselors at Thriveworks in Conroe, TX can help couples and friends gain important insights into the ways they communicate and support each other. These therapists can help identify problems and obstacles in a relationship, and craft practical ways to resolve them. When your car breaks down or needs routine maintenance, you take it to a mechanic. When your relationship is suffering or it could use a checkup, you schedule a session with a top-rated couples therapist at Thriveworks in Conroe, TX. 

How Can a Couples Therapist Help Us?

  • Communication skills
  • Conflict resolution
  • Anger management

  • Mutual support during serious life changes like marriage or bereavement

But couples clients arrive at Thriveworks in Conroe, TX for all kinds of valuable reasons. In fact, at your initial couples therapy session, your licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) will probably ask you and your partner about your goals for therapy. Those goals may include:

  • To feel more loved.

  • To model a healthier relationship for your kids.

  • To heal from an affair.
  • To stop feeling stuck or stagnant.
  • To cope with empty nest syndrome.

How to Choose a Couples Therapist or Marriage Counselor

When choosing a couples therapist or marriage counselor, it helps to cover the basics first. For example, ask yourself the following: 

  • Is the counselor fully licensed and authorized to give treatment in Texas? (All the mental health providers at Thriveworks are fully licensed.) 
  • Is the therapist affordable? (Thriveworks mental health providers accept most health insurance and offer affordable self-pay rates.)
  • Can the therapist meet with you online or in-person, at your convenience? (Thriveworks counselors can meet with you virtually through secure, video conferencing software, or in-person at the modern office in Conroe, TX. Some clients even choose a hybrid model.)
  • Is the therapist experienced in the particular issues that you and your partner face? (Thriveworks marriage counselors have worked with a diverse array of partners like LGBTQ, Christian, and engaged couples.)

After you’ve covered the basics, you and your partner can probe further into the kinds of experience your couples therapist at Thriveworks in Conroe, TX has had. It helps partner buy-in if you both agree on who you’re going to see. If your partner remains reluctant to see a therapist, you can explain that a therapist’s role isn’t to take sides, and that marriage therapy is usually brief, highly effective, and solution-focused.

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.
