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?

Simon remembers the early part of their marriage, when they rarely fought, had dinner together every night, and did kind things for each other. In the last few years, he’s been working a lot more, and so they rarely eat together. To add to the stress of his workload, they have two children. His wife stays home with them, but she’s often in a bad mood when Simon does get home.

It’s been months since he and his wife were intimate, and he can’t even imagine what it would take to get them feeling that kind of warmth for each other again. Though they love each other and are committed to the life they’ve built, they’ve really drifted apart.

Simon and his wife are great candidates for couples counseling. They have several problem areas, which is common, but they all stem from drifting apart due to not putting their relationship first.

Many couples, like Simon and his wife, have hurt feelings that they don’t know how to mend. Fortunately, Thriveworks Counseling in Fort Worth, TX can help. Our marriage counselors and couples therapists can help couples work through their relationship problems, improve communication, and more.

The Benefits of Fort Worth Counseling for Couples

The main benefit of therapy for couples is improved communication skills. When two people fall in love, they may take it for granted that they’ll be able to make it work, particularly if they are generally willing to talk things out. But different love languages, and therefore different communication styles, can make it difficult to communicate clearly with each other. Couples therapy can help you learn to speak each other’s languages.

Instead of saying something in a way that unintentionally escalates the situation further, you’ll learn how to say things to each other in a way that clearly, calmly, and effectively conveys your message. This doesn’t mean watching every word that comes out of your mouth, but simply understanding that due to different experiences and backgrounds, one sentence can be interpreted in a thousand ways.

One common reason we see couples for relationship counseling is infidelity. Though it’s incredibly painful to find out your partner has stepped outside of the relationship, it is possible to recover. It takes time, work, and commitment, but with improved communication and an understanding of why the infidelity happened in the first place, it is possible.

Couples therapy doesn’t have to be just for couples experiencing marital discord. If one or the other of the partners is struggling with substance abuse or conflict outside the relationship, couples therapy can improve the outcome of that situation as well. Additionally, if one spouse is experiencing depression, marriage therapy, either alone or in combination with antidepressants, can improve outcomes (Waring). The supporting partner will learn what exactly the suffering partner is experiencing and techniques for supporting them more fully. As a result, both partners will be happier with the process of recovery.

I love my Dr Odu-Onikosi. But I have had several very bad experiences with the appt makers and supervisors over the appt making ( if there are any supervisors ....as no one has ever called me back ) The mis information they provide is gross and straight up not correct. You are probably losing patients over this as if I didn't like my Dr so much this second instance would have made me stop using Thrive for my needs all together.
