Starting Couples & marriage counseling

  • Different visions for the future
  • Disagreements in parenting
  • Lack of trust

  • Strength-based therapy

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?

Relationships aren’t always going to be perfect. In reality, most relationships are full of ups, downs, and in-betweens. The early stage of your relationship was likely full of good times and excitement as you and your partner got to know one another better. But over time, maybe you noticed that a number of situations and factors outside of your control started impacting your relationship.

Maybe you’re fighting more about your finances. Maybe you or your partner recently lost a loved one and you haven’t really talked in weeks. Or maybe you notice your partner is spending more time on their phone than ever before.

When resolving conflict becomes impossible without fighting, or you feel like your relationship is strained, it’s okay to reach out and ask for help. Couples therapy and marriage counseling can help you and your partner identify potential problems in your relationship and give you the tools, resources, and coping skills to work through them.

If you are struggling to find balance in your relationship, a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) can act as a mediator and support system to help you through the rough patches. Call our Thriveworks Counseling center at Flowood, MS or use our online booking portal to schedule your first counseling session today.

How Can Couples Counseling Help Us?

Skills like active listening and efficient problem-solving will help you work as a team as you navigate life together.
