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.

Couples Therapy in Edison, NJ—Help and Support for Your Relationship

Differing priorities is a common problem in relationships. Working through this challenge isn’t always a piece of cake. Fortunately, doing so can be made easier with the help of a couples therapist. Couples therapists are trained to help couples work through these and other relationship issues. In addition to their training, they have developed specific skills and gained experience working with many couples—of whom run into challenges just like John and Erica and every other couple out there.

Couples therapy at Thriveworks Edison takes mental health care up a notch. Not only do they have the skills, training, and experience to help, but they truly care about their clients. They will utilize all of these elements to design an individualized approach to treatment just for you and your partner.

Or, if you and your partner are merely interested in improving a certain aspect of your relationship, we’re happy to help you with that, too. Either way, just give us a call. We’re here to help.

How Does Couples Therapy at Thriveworks Edison Work?

Couples therapy is designed to help couples work through the challenges in their relationship and/or improve their relationship as whole. It’s for new couples, who would like to improve their communication; it’s for couples who have been together for 5+ years who are struggling to get on the same page; it’s for new and old couples, with or without serious relationship issues.

That said, many of the couples who do seek out couples therapy do so because their relationship is suffering. Here are several common relationship issues that can be confronted in couples therapy:

  • Infidelity
  • Poor communication
  • Resentment
  • Financial stress
  • Parenting stress or disagreements
  • Differing priorities
  • Opposing visions for the future
  • Addiction or substance abuse

The reason that many couples in couples therapy are suffering severely is that oftentimes, we wait until the very last minute to reach out for help. We do everything we can to resolve our problems ourselves. Why? Because we fear being judged or being seen as weak. We want you to know that choosing to work with a couples therapist is not a sign of weakness. Instead, it shows your true commitment to your relationship and your desire to make it work. In addition, we want you to know that there is no space for judgment at Thriveworks Edison Therapy. We will provide you with a safe space for working through your challenges and improving your relationship. And we’ll help you do it.

Talisha Harrison helped me by giving me the tools to help me navigate some difficult relationships. I also appreciate how kind, sensitive, and empathetic she was as I have been grieving a recent loss of a parent. I have also been recovering from a serious medical condition. Should I feel the need to seek counseling in the future, I would not hesitate to return to counseling with Talisha.

I find Nancy to be a deeply compassionate, caring, mental health professional who takes a strength based approach in her practice. Her heightened mindfulness creates an environment where meaning can be cultivated. Her divergent perspectives and holistic approach transcend the work she does.
