Starting Couples & marriage counseling

What is couples & marriage counseling?

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

What type of therapy is used in couples therapy?

The types of therapy used in couples and marriage counseling include:

  • 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?

Kayley and Andrew got married six months ago, and from the outside, they appear as though they couldn’t be happier. Both of them are still doing well at their jobs, and their friend groups have still been able to enjoy their company, despite being newlyweds. Everything seems to be going well for both partners, except for when they’re alone. After dinner, Kayley’s waves of anxiety seem to reverberate throughout the house—although she doesn’t mean to, she often becomes overwhelmed thinking about the next day’s tasks and challenges. When Kayley gets stressed, she verbally lashes out at Andrew, who tends to retaliate with hurtful words of his own. 

Neither Kayley nor Andrew wants to continue fighting, and that’s why they’ve decided that it’s time for them to consider marriage counseling for their relationship’s toughest issues. Although neither of them has been to therapy or counseling before, both partners are ready to engage with their marriage counselor and to learn to communicate effectively and healthily. With a renewed ability to compromise and set boundaries, Kayley and Andrew hope that their relationship will recover as they work their way through marriage counseling. 

Like Kayley and Andrew, many couples also seek to reconcile their differences through couples therapy or marriage counseling at Thriveworks in Jonesboro, AR. With one of our counselors or therapist’s assistance, you and your partner can reconnect with each other and yourselves. Take some time to consider whether your relationship could benefit from a professional’s assistance. If so, Call Thriveworks in Jonesboro, AR; we’re ready to work with you. 

Do We Need to Talk with a Counselor or Therapist?

Deciding whether or not to talk with one of our providers 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 partner. 

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 
  • Inability to respect each other’s boundaries
  • Cheating 
  • Avoiding physical touch or sex 
  • Lying and other forms of emotional manipulation

What Are the Benefits of Couples Therapy or Marriage Counseling?

Partnering with one of our providers at Thriveworks in Jonesboro, AR 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 

Moving forward may not seem easy, but with a professional’s support, it’s possible to find the healing and progress that you need. In fact, talking openly and honestly with one of our providers is a great way to ensure that they understand your situation and can provide you with the tools you need so you can both succeed.

Thriveworks helped me realize that I do believe people can change. I’m not the person I was three months ago, broken and fearful. I’m healthy and happy and for the first time being kind to myself. Thank you for giving me my life back.
