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?

A relationship can be the source of immense joy, and it can also be the source of immense pain and frustration. Whether you are dealing with a marriage, a long-term committed relationship, or even find yourself with a new love, none of these relationships are immune to difficulties.

Although the old saying might try to convince us that, “Love is all you need,” this is simply not true. Love is a needed starting point in any relationship or marriage, but we also need healthy communication and mutual respect. These simple principles are not present in many relationships, no matter how deep the love, and that lack of respect and healthy interaction can cause great stress and difficulty.

Couples Counseling Can Help

You may be surprised to find yourself and your partner experiencing an intense crisis in your relationship, wrought with raised voices, angry looks, and serious pain. You may be questioning everything you thought you knew about your partner — you can benefit from couples counseling.

Perhaps you just do not have the relationship you know is possible. You crave a deeper and more meaningful connection. You feel distant from your partner and you cannot share your deepest thoughts and feelings. You know your dreams for your relationship are not impossible — you can benefit from couples counseling.

Identify the Source of the Problem

Couples counseling can be helpful in many relationships, no matter the source of the difficulties. It can be helpful in identifying the cause of the strain in your relationship. Identifying the starting point of misunderstandings and conflict can help you move past this problem and develop new ways of coping and interacting.

Problems in a relationship can have many sources, such as:

  • Lack of trust
  • Established patterns of unhealthy communication
  • Infidelity
  • Financial problems
  • Sick or wayward child
  • Loss of a loved one
  • Addictions
  • Lost job or change in career
  • Health problems
  • Emotional or psychological issues

Whatever the source of the problems in your relationship, help is available. It can be difficult to communicate the concerns about your relationship to your partner. You may feel apprehensive about voicing your thoughts.

You may not be able to identify any one problem or source of trouble in your relationship. You may feel discontent and simply unhappy, without being able to establish a cause. This is not an uncommon relationship status and is not a hopeless situation.

Two people can sometimes work through problems on their own, but oftentimes couples need professional help to learn how to interact in a healthy, positive way. Harmful patterns of behavior that have been present for weeks, months, years, or even decades, are not easily broken, but change is possible. Couples Counseling can teach both members of the relationship the tools necessary to break negative patterns of behavior and communication.

Establish Methods for Changing your Relationship

There are many methods for changing patterns of behavior in a relationship. Couples Counseling can give you the tools necessary to stop harmful interactions from happening, and can help create the framework for establishing loving, positive actions in their place.

Some of these ideas for change may include:

  • Recognizing and acknowledging problems
  • Identifying the source of your problems
  • Listening to your partner
  • Acknowledging and respecting your partner’s feelings
  • Being honest and clear about your feelings and emotions
  • Changing negative patterns of response and reaction
  • Developing new tools for creating healthy communication
  • Maintaining and fostering intimacy
  • Dealing with underlying psychological issues or addictions

Does this sound overwhelming? It is hard for you to imagine your negative cycles of behavior changing? Do you feel unprepared to confront your partner or spouse with your concerns? Do you and your partner know you need help but have no idea where to turn?

My depression and anxiety were taken over my life and I knew I had to make a change. Just like everyone else I thought I didn't need counseling. After my first session with Kristen G., I knew God had placed me with a compassionate, and caring therapist. Without a doubt I would recommend Thriveworks and their team of professionals
