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?

If being in a relationship was easy and stress-free, more people would be committing to a partner. But the reality is that every single relationship we have requires time, effort, and hard work. Communicating effectively and problem-solving together doesn’t always come naturally. When we get into relationships and commit ourselves to one another, those challenges are going to come up at one point or another. The best thing you can do when the water gets too rocky is reach out for an unbiased, understanding helping hand. 

A great relationship is about two things: First, appreciating the similarities and second, respecting the differences.” – Unknown 

Do you and your partner struggle to see eye to eye? Are you losing the spark between you and don’t know how to get it back? Are you going through a significant change that’s putting a strain on your relationship? A couples therapist or marriage counselor at Thriveworks Counseling in Dallas, GA can step in and help. 

Couples therapy and marriage counseling are centered around helping you and your partner solve problems and reconnect on a deeper level. It doesn’t matter if you’ve been dating for a few months or married for over 10 years, therapy and counseling can prove to be very beneficial. If you think you and your partner could benefit from working with a mental health professional, reach out today and get started. 

Deciding to Go to Therapy: What to Expect 

When considering whether or not you and your partner should pursue therapy, there could be a lot of hesitation involved. Maybe one of you is hesitant to sit down with a stranger and tell them all about the issues you’re having. Typically, arguments are kept behind closed doors and it can be scary to put all of your issues out in the open. Don’t worry, though. The therapists and counselors at our office will never judge you and your partner for the concerns you’re having. They’ve helped many couples before you and are ready to help you make the same meaningful progress, too. 

Getting started with a Thriveworks marriage or couples counselor is simple. They’ll work to understand both of you on an individual level first. This will give them more insight as to what you’re both feeling and why. Once they’ve gathered enough information from you both, they’ll create a treatment plan centered around your specific relationship needs. Moving forward, a variety of therapeutic techniques and methods will be utilized to help you and your partner achieve things like: 

  1. Better communication skills
  2. Effective problem-solving techniques
  3. Stronger trust and intimacy 
  4. Mutual understanding and respect 
  5. Stress management techniques
  6. And more!

I have known Lisa Bradley for many years. She is easy to talk to, very compassionate, listens well and without judgement. I highly recommend her as a therapist.
