Starting Marriage counseling

What is Marriage counseling?

Marriage counseling, also known as couples therapy and relationship counseling, helps couples work through their specific relationship issues. Thriveworks marriage counseling in Fort Lauderdale, FL 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 Marriage counseling include:

  • Jealousy
  • Trust issues
  • Infidelity
  • Opposing values
  • Different visions for the future
  • Disagreements in parenting
  • Lack of trust
  • Financial distress
  • Sex issues

How does Marriage counseling work?

Marriage counseling 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 marriage counseling 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 Marriage counseling conducted in person or online?

Marriage 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 Marriage counseling last?

On average, couples attend marriage counseling for 12 weeks. However, 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. Marriage counselors and therapists at Thriveworks in Fort Lauderdale, FL work with their clients to create goals, decide on ideal timelines, and establish treatment plans.

Need more help deciding?

When two people love each other and know they want to spend the rest of their lives together, they often embark on marriage. In the days leading up to their wedding day, the couple dreams about how amazing married life will be. They fantasize about the family they will build and all of the memories they will make together. While this can all very well come true, we often forget that marriage isn’t all highs—there are lows, too. Marriage takes hard work, and even when we put in that work, it’s impossible to avoid conflict forever. The reality is that we must confront obstacles as they come and work through them together.

“The greatest marriages are built on teamwork… a mutual respect, a healthy dose of admiration and a never ending portion of love and grace.” –Fawn Weaver

The harsh reality is that many marriages end in divorce. Why is this? While there isn’t one simple answer, conflict resolution likely plays a major role. In other words, many couples fail to acknowledge, discuss, manage, and resolve the conflicts that arise in their marriage. Common issues include financial stress, lack of intimacy, and infidelity. In any case, it’s important that the couple brings light to the issue, talks about it, and work through it together. But that is often easier said than done for many couples.

Fortunately, there is help available to couples who are struggling to work through the issues in their marriage. The marriage counselors at Thriveworks Fort Lauderdale specialize in helping married couples to improve their conflict resolution skills and, in turn, their relationship. If you think that you and your spouse could benefit from working with a marriage counselor or psychologist, reach out to Thriveworks Fort Lauderdale at (754) 400-5514. A scheduling specialist can help you schedule your first appointment today.

Should I Look Into Marriage Counseling?

It’s hard to admit that we have a problem and need help. But it’s also so important that we swallow our pride and do just that. Doing so can prove to save y our marriage. In other instances, we fail to recognize that there is a problem or improvements that could be made. Take a minute to tune into your marriage and answer the following:

  1. Do my spouse and I communicate effectively? Do we feel comfortable talking to each other about any given issue?
  2. Does my spouse or myself struggle with jealousy issues? Do either of us get jealous when the other spends time with friends or talks to people of the opposite sex?
  3. Do my spouse and I struggle to connect on a deeper or intimate level? Is this effecting our relationship?
  4. Are my spouse and I on the same page when it comes to parenting our kids? Do we agree on parenting styles?
  5. Are my spouse and I fulfilled on an individual level? Are we still able to work toward personal goals with the support of the other?

These are important, yet sometimes difficult questions to explore with your spouse. A marriage counselor or psychologist can assist you with this activity and then help you make any necessary adjustments to increase happiness or fulfillment in your relationship.

How Does Marriage Counseling Work?

The marriage counselor at Thriveworks Fort Lauderdale will analyze your relationship and structure therapy based on your needs. Your counselor will talk to you and your spouse about the issues you might be experiencing as well as improvements you want to make. They can also help you to identify issues or improvements you could make if you and your spouse haven’t been able to identify them on your own!

Your experience in marriage therapy at Thriveworks Fort Lauderdale might involve talking about effective communication, intimacy, parenting styles, individual goals, or something else entirely, depending on your unique relationship.

I recently switched from "Doctors On Demand" to "Thriveworks." I am seeing both a psychiatrist and a talk therapist. Both have thus far been exceptional. My psychiatrist is thorough in evaluating how medications are effecting me and advising possible alternatives if we need to reconsider a course of action. I appreciate his holistic approach to my treatment, probing how diet and other lifestyle choices may impact my emotional well being. My talk therapist listens carefully to me, shares a central theme that emerges from our session and recommends exercises that help delve deeper into issues that impact my ability to cope and thrive. I amvery happy with their service. Thank you.

Pedro is an excellent clinician who's primary concern is his clients wellbeing. He goes above and beyond to provide the best clinical care for his patients, and creates an individualized treatment plan to help assist with their specific needs. The clinical world is far better off having someone like this practicing in the field.
