Starting Couples therapy

What is Couples therapy?

Thriveworks Couples therapy helps couples work through their specific relationship issues. It 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 couples therapy include:

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

How does Couples therapy work?

Couples therapy 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 couples therapy 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 Couples therapy conducted in person or online?

Couples therapy at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you and your partner.

How long does Couples therapy last?

On average, couples attend couples therapy for 12 weeks. However, couples therapy may last longer or shorter, dependent on the couples' needs, the challenges they'd like to work through, and the pace of their progress.

Need more help deciding?

Relationship issues, while highly stressful, are actually not uncommon. This is especially true for couples that have been together for a considerable number of years. Relationship counseling can be helpful for resolving issues. The knowledgeable and compassionate mental health professionals at Thriveworks in Johnson City, TN are ready to talk with you and help you both take healthy steps forward in your relationship.

What Is Couples Therapy?

In couples therapy, partners meet with a marriage and family therapist in order to discuss persistent issues, improve communication and problem-solving skills, and implement other practices that improve the overall quality and health of a relationship. Marriage counseling and couples counseling are essentially the same, though one will be geared toward married couples rather than partners that are dating.

Partnering with one of our providers at Thriveworks in Johnson City, TN can open the door to professional insight and guidance as well as coping strategies and communication tools designed specifically for your relationship’s problems. Our providers can help you both to: 

  • Establish healthy boundaries 
  • Highlight the importance and need for compromise
  • Rebuild trust after infidelity or dishonesty 
  • Rekindle sexual intimacy together 
  • Help both partners manage anger or anxiety 

Do I Need Relationship Counseling?

Deciding whether or not to receive counseling is a personal decision that you and your spouse or partner will need to make independently. However, we still believe that any couple, regardless of their relationship’s age or situation, can benefit from counseling or therapy services. 

In fact, couples therapy and marriage counseling at Thriveworks isn’t about being perfect or happy in our relationship all of the time. Instead, it’s about learning to be honest, open, and willing to compromise with our partners. If you’re in a relationship that’s suffering from unhealthy or negative dynamics, it’s possible that you’re experiencing: 

  • Arguments that last for hours or days 
  • Passive-aggressive or abusive behavior 
  • Lack of respect for each other’s boundaries
  • Cheating 
  • Avoidance of physical touch or sex 
  • Lying and other forms of emotional manipulation

I have met with MJ ( Marissa) Jordan at the Johnson City,TN location for 5-6 sessions. My main issue is gaining understanding and knowledge of how and why I act the way I do, and what changes I need to make. Her ability to help me understand and change without feeling bad about myself is amazing! She uses enlightening personal examples that make it easy for me to comprehend. I am learning so much about how making a few positive changes will allow me to become a better person. I highly suggest MJ if you're looking for help with personal issues!
