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 Jacksonville, 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 Jacksonville, FL work with their clients to create goals, decide on ideal timelines, and establish treatment plans.

Need more help deciding?

Communication problems. Sex issues. Anger management. Conflicts in child rearing. Work stressors. Changing hobbies and interests. This list could go on forever. Every marriage encounters challenges, such as the aforementioned. Fortunately, though you cannot shield your relationship from every marital conflict out there, you can acquire the right tools for properly resolving these conflicts and keeping your relationship safe. How do you acquire these tools? One option is to work with a marriage counselor.

Great marriages don’t just happen by luck or by accident. They are the result of a consistent investment of time, thoughtfulness, forgiveness, affection, prayer, mutual respect, and a rock-solid commitment between a husband and wife. –Dave Willis

Your spouse gets home from work, gives you a quick kiss on the cheek, and immediately heads to his cave in the basement. You don’t see him again until it’s time to go to bed. This causes you to think: “When is the last time we sat down and had a real conversation?” Lately, you’ve only discussed the kids’ soccer schedules and the monthly budget. You long to connect on a deeper level again.

Sometimes, the most important people in our lives get the cold shoulder and vice versa. We get caught up the day to day responsibilities, from going to work, parenting, and staying on top of chores. Before you know it, you’ve inadvertently forgotten about relationship maintenance. If you’re interested in learning about relationship maintenance, consider working with a marriage counselor at Thriveworks Counseling in Jacksonville, FL (West). We have marriage counselors and therapists who can help you work through the present problems in your relationship as well as maintain the health and strength of your relationship indefinitely. To schedule marriage counseling at Thriveworks Counseling in Jacksonville, FL (West), just call (904) 567-7203.

Should My Spouse and I Work with a Marriage Counselor?

Marriage counseling, also known as marital counseling and marriage therapy, has an important goal, which is to help couples work through their conflicts and improve their relationships. Our team of marriage counselors at Thriveworks Counseling in Jacksonville, FL personalize treatment for each married couple they meet with. That said, often, treatment involves improving communication lines as well as problem-solving skills. Marriage counseling at Thriveworks is led by skilled, caring, licensed professionals. They will prove valuable to your relationship, thanks to their impressive skills and experience helping married couples.

Marriage counseling is often a quick form of treatment. You might need only attend several sessions to properly resolve the marital conflict at hand. In other instances, you might need to attend marital counseling sessions for at least a few months to really get down to business. Either way, our marriage counselors are happy to guide you in treatment and help you better your relationship.

Who Can Benefit from Marriage Counseling?

The trials and tribulations we go through with our spouse can cause significant stress and make us question our relationships. However, if we confront and work through them properly, these trials and tribulations can actually serve to strengthen the marriage. The Thriveworks marriage counselors and therapists are ready to help you confront the following problems head on:

  • Communication problems
  • Sex issues
  • Anger management
  • Addiction
  • Child rearing conflicts
  • Work stress
  • Evolving interests
  • Major life transitions
  • Financial stress

Some of the above are personal issues; however, they directly affect one’s spouse and the state of their relationship. If you are currently standing in front of one of these challenges (or another challenge we haven’t yet mentioned), know that a marriage counselor at Thriveworks Counseling in Jacksonville, FL (West) can help you overcome it.

Jessica Gort is by far the best therapist I’ve ever had. She’s not only met my needs and expectations, she goes above and beyond that. When I first met with Jessica i was newly sober and recently lost my father, I was struggling and had just ended a professional relationship with a prior therapist that couldn’t help me with what I needed at that time. I felt lost and was losing hope until I met her. I expressed my concerns with Jessica and she did everything she could to help me in the ways that I needed, to keep my sobriety and mental health intact during my grieving process. If I could rate her 10 stars I would. She’s amazing. Highly recommend.
