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

  • The Gottman Method
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Emotionally-focused therapy (EFT)
  • Solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT)
  • 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 easy. If you’re in one, you probably already know that. They take a lot of hard work, communication, and trust. Conflicts are bound to come up. No matter how long you and your partner have been together, you’re likely going to hit some rough patches. And that’s okay! 

At Thriveworks Counseling in Jackson, MS, we have marriage counselors and couples therapists who are trained and experienced in helping couples work through all different kinds of problems and challenges. Our counselors and therapists will spend time assessing both of your needs, challenges, and goals. Doing so will give them a full picture of what is going on in order to best treat the matters at hand. With the information they gather, they’ll create a customized treatment plan that is specific to you and your partner. 

If you feel like you and your significant other would greatly benefit from working with one of our mental health professionals, consider reaching out today.

What Is Couples Therapy? What Is Marriage Counseling?

Couples counseling and marriage counseling involve partners working with mental health professionals called marriage and family therapists to improve communication and problem-solving skills, resolve conflicts, facilitate honest conversation, and boost overall relationship dynamics. 

Common reasons why couples choose to work with one of our counselors or therapists include: 

  • Infidelity 
  • Poor communication
  • Major life changes
  • Financial stress or strain 
  • Stress management
  • Anger management 
  • Lack of intimacy 
  • Parenting disagreements
  • Trouble conceiving 
  • Unaligned values
  • Unbalanced household responsibilities 
  • Questioning separation or divorce
  • And more

Though many couples get relationship counseling to resolve a specific issue, you don’t have to be in conflict to go to therapy together. At the end of the day, we want to provide you and your partner with solid advice and uplifting support in order to improve your relationship and help you move forward. Choosing to go to therapy is a smart decision. Your relationship can improve.

Do I Need Relationship Counseling?

When you’re having a persistent issue, no matter how big or small, getting the help of an outside, unbiased perspective is the best thing you can do. On average, couples will wait several years before getting the help they need to save their relationship, but that wait often means running the risk of ruining your relationship. Consider these scenarios:

  1. You and your partner are coming out of the honeymoon phase. Suddenly, there are little things that your partner does that drive you crazy.
  2. Your significant other continues to talk about a sensitive topic and you don’t know how many other ways you can ask them to stop. 
  3. You have been together for a while now and your spark is starting to fade away. 
  4. Your partner has been unfaithful. You are both ready to put the past behind you, but you aren’t sure how.
  5. You feel like your partner doesn’t prioritize quality time with you. They’re focused on doing other things instead. 

Chances are, you can relate to at least one of these situations. It doesn’t matter if you’ve only been dating for a few months or have been married for over 10 years, you could most likely benefit from speaking with a trusted mental health professional. Even if there are no uncomfortable issues in your relationship, seeing a mental health professional together can help strengthen your healthy bond and provide a space to perform regular relationship maintenance.

Whether you just need a little extra help communicating or help overcoming past trauma, we can help you.
