Couples Therapy in Cumming, GA—Therapists and Counselors for Relationship Help

Relationships often start out happy and exciting. The couple is smitten: they enjoy getting to know each other, spending time together, and exploring new experiences. People often refer to this blissful beginning as the “honeymoon stage.” Often, it’s when this phase comes to an end, about 6 months to a year of being together, that a couple is met with significant obstacles.

“Behind every happy couple lies two people who have

fought hard to overcome all obstacles and interference to

be that way. Why? Because it’s what they wanted.”

–Kim George

Jealousy, lack of trust, and different visions for the future are all common instances of adversity in a romantic relationship. One partner might wrestle with jealousy or trust issues as a result of a past relationship, which start to come out as the two get closer. Or, two partners might realize their visions for the next 5-10 years do not align like they thought or hoped. These and other issues can prove challenging. And leave two individuals wondering if or how they can overcome the problem and keep their relationship alive.

Couples counselors are experts at helping couples to overcome the challenges they face and preserve their relationship. These mental health professionals have specific skills, experience, and training that enable them to help their clients with this important area of life. If you think that you and your partner could benefit from working with a couples counselor, considering partnering up with a couples therapist at Thriveworks Cumming in Forsyth County.

How Does Couples Therapy Work?

Every year, couples seek out couples therapy, with the hopes of improving their relationship dynamic. While each therapist may have a different approach or style, the following are major themes in couples therapy:

  1. Specific Issues: A main theme in couples therapy is talking about and working through specific issues in a relationship, be it jealousy, infidelity, trust issues, different visions for the future, etc.
  2. New, Effective Tools: Another important part of couples therapy is learning new tools for confronting and working through said issue(s).
  3. A Clear Path Forward: The ultimate mission in couples therapy is to put the two individuals on a clear path toward success in their relationship. The tools they learn in therapy will help them learn how to work through their current and future issues.

Research shows that couples therapy really works. And that’s coming straight from couples who have sought out this help. According to a study published in the Journal of Marital and Family Therapy, relationship improvement and client satisfaction is high among individuals in couples counseling. Out of the clients of 526 couples counselors in 15 different states, 98.1% rated services as good or even excellent. Furthermore, 97.1% reported receiving the help they were looking for.

Family Saver

★★★★★
Every family goes through seasons were they may need help in navigating challenging emotional or stressful situations. Depending on the circumstances, thinking you can handle it on your own may prove to be too much and not the right approach. Our family experienced one of these seasons and the team at Thrivewoks offered on point guidance and perspective that our family was not able to see from the middle of the storm. Teenage years present many emotional and developmental changes that can often require outside the family support. Dr. Tim Giannoni and Counselor Tony Reynolds provide prompt, compassionate and effective care for our teenager and whole family. The storm is clearing largely due to techniques and consistent meetings that allow our teenager to have his place to go to talk and work through the many emotional peaks and valleys that come with these years of life. We cannot thank our team at Thriveworks enough for caring for our son and family!!!

The ups and downs of raising a teenage boy can feel very daunting at times. Although most days are fine, others can be quite challenging, and it's comforting to know that Dr. Giannoni is there to help and offer support. Our experience with Thriveworks has been excellent, and we are happy to offer our highest review and recommendation for anyone looking to make parenting just a bit easier. Thank you for your continued support.

Prospective and Compassion.

★★★★★
I cannot express how much Dr. Wilson helped me when I was at a very low point in my life. Her compassion and perspective brought insight that helped me through that tough period in my life. Her education and training enabled her to catch important warning signs that a lesser trained therapist might have missed. Today I'm in a much better place largely due to her counseling on how to deal with life issues.
