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?

How does prioritizing your relationship look from day to day? It might look like physical affection, attention, or honest communication. Every couple is different, and individuals within the same partnership may speak different “love languages.” But the important thing is that couples keep the lines of communication open so they can routinely check in with each other about what’s working and what isn’t. Sometimes those conversations can be difficult, and that’s where couples counseling can help. 

Couples therapy and marriage counseling at Thriveworks in Dacula, GA is a way to facilitate effective communication between people who love each other but who might be hitting roadblocks. Many couples come to relationship counseling as a last resort, when they’re in crisis, for example. But couples counseling doesn’t have to be that way. It can also be an effective way of maintaining intimate bonds and preventing upsets in the future. 

What Is Couples Therapy? What Is Marriage Counseling?

Licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFTs) are trained to help couples find solutions to their issues using evidence-based, proven-effective methods. At Thriveworks in Dacula, GA, our mental health professionals use a variety of relationship therapy techniques like reflective listening and emotionally focused therapy to help clients achieve their goals. These goals might include the following:

  • To feel more loved and appreciated.
  • To model a healthier relationship for children.
  • To reconnect. 
  • To feel like friends again.
  • To feel passion.
  • To have more physical intimacy.
  • To reduce tension and conflict.
  • To stop having the same fight.
  • To create healthier boundaries.
  • To honestly express needs and desires.
  • To heal after an affair.
  • To cope with empty nest syndrome.
  • To get support for someone’s mental health or behavioral issues like substance abuse, anxiety, or depression.
  • To address issues or concerns before marriage (in the case of premarital counseling).
  • To process trauma.
  • To cope together with grief

Do I Need Relationship Counseling?

The best question isn’t “Do I need relationship counseling?” but “Can I benefit from relationship counseling?” The answer is… yes, everyone can. 

Couples therapy is highly individualistic. Great counselors address every couple’s particular needs, meaning that treatment is geared toward specific, real, personally meaningful concerns. 

A couple doesn’t need to be falling apart at the seams to benefit from relationship counseling. Many celebrities with successful, enduring relationships see marriage counselors regularly for maintenance of their partnership. For example:

  • Dax Shephard and Kristen Bell
  • John Legend and Chrissy Teigen
  • Gabrielle Union-Wade and Dwyane Wade
  • Pink and Carey Hart

At Thriveworks Dacula, relationship counselors can help couples work to improve the following, and much more:

  • Communication skills
  • Mutual trust
  • Displays of affection
  • Emotional regulation
  • Addiction or substance abuse issues
  • Sexual cycles

Relationship issues don’t have to be dire to merit the attention and expertise of a qualified professional. Therapists can help resolve conflicts before they happen by helping clients recognize their emotional triggers.

What Is the Best Approach to Marriage Counseling?

There is no “one-size-fits-all” best approach to marriage counseling. When working with couples, the specialists at Thriveworks in Dacula, GA may use one or a combination of the following therapeutic approaches:

  • Gottman method
  • Narrative therapy
  • Emotionally focused therapy (EFT)
  • Imago relationship therapy
  • Solution-focused therapy
