Knoxville Marriage Therapy

Marriage and Relationship Therapy – Counselors and Coaches in Knoxville

As wedding season and engagements seem to abound around us, the reminders of young love and happy devotion flourish. But perhaps these are painful reminders for you, of what once was? Perhaps this season of happiness for so many, just brings to mind the pain of your own relationships?

With every invitation or save the date are you freshly made aware of the challenges you and your spouse might be facing? Perhaps it’s not even that evident, and you simply don’t have the peace of mind you believe you should in your marriage. Or maybe your relationship doesn’t bring you as much joy as you want it to. Maybe you just desire a deeper connection with the person you love and know that it is possible.

At the end of the day, if you are craving something more from your marital relationship, at Thriveworks, we can help you identify what that something is, and find out how to get it; we can help you and your spouse get the fulfillment your relationship deserves.

Finding the Source of the Relationship Problem

You’re not alone. These questions plague marriages all around us. Everybody knows one out of every two marriages will probably end in divorce, yet the old adage that, “Love is all is you need,” still persists. The fact of the matter, however, is that that is simply not true — if it were, that puppy love would sustain and fulfill us. The truth of the matter is that no relationship is immune to difficulties, problems, pain, or frustration. Some of the more common problems include:

  • A lack of communication
  • Seemingly pointless arguments
  • Parenting struggles
  • Infidelity
  • Haunting pasts
  • Insecurity about the future
  • Overburdened schedules
  • Competing careers

Are you experiencing any of these? While human relationships are never that simple the good news, however, is that human relationships are organic — we can change and grow them and reach the potentials we dream of. Don’t get me wrong, of course we need that budding love, but we also need healthy communication and mutual respect and understanding.

Thriveworks Knoxville Marriage Counseling Is Here: You’re Not Alone

Thriveworks Knoxville Marriage Therapy (or “Marital Counseling Service”) is here to help nurture that growth and change through Couples Counseling. At Thriveworks, we have a “no waiting list policy” for couples counseling — a licensed professional will meet with you as soon as possible to help you begin your journey to that abiding relationship you know is possible.

Regardless of the source of the pain in your marriage, marital therapy can help identify and address it. Simply identifying the actual source of the misunderstanding is the beginning of the healing and growing process. With a Thriveworks Couples Counselor helping you through every step of the way, couples can learn how to identify the source of their conflicts, establish methods for overcoming those problems, and enjoy their relationship as it grows to the heights of emotional intimacy they imagined when they said “I do” — whether that was weeks, months, years, or even decades ago.

In fact, once the source of the problem has been identified, and you know where you want your relationship to go, most people find that the change is easier than they ever thought possible.

Now, moving towards a healthy relationship means undergoing growth and change. That growth and change might look like any number of daunting things in life.

For example, it might include:

  • Learning to identify and acknowledge problems
  • Understanding the source of those problems
  • Listening to how your partner sees those problems
  • Respecting those feelings
  • Simply being honest and clear about your own feelings and emotions
  • Overcoming negative patterns of behavior
  • Developing new methods that foster healthy communication
  • Maintaining intimacy — emotional as well as sexual
  • Dealing with underlying psychological issues or addictions

Our Marriage Counselors Want To Help

At Thriveworks Knoxville marriage therapy, we know that may sound overwhelming — and if you try to do it alone, it really is overwhelming. You might feel intimidated to confront your spouse or partner with your concerns and emotions. You might feel incapable of changing long-lasting negative cycles of behavior. It may even seem a hopelessly lost cause to try to find the source of the problem.

But it doesn’t have to be any of that, and you are not alone. With a Thriveworks Marriage Therapist to guide you through the process, you and your spouse can tackle any relationship issue — big or small, old or new.

While human relationships are probably the most complex parts of our lives, they are also probably the least prepared for parts of our lives. We seek legal counsel when we have a legal problem or want to plan for the future. We seek financial advice when we want to invest or start planning for retirement. But in probably the most complex area of our lives, we as a society, rarely seek the right counsel. At Thriveworks, our counselors have the expertise and professionalism to help you make that happen, to find simple and practical solutions to the complex problems you and your spouse face.

We can help you cut to the source of the problem. We can help you create and develop new, healthy ways of overcoming these absorbing problems. Most importantly, at Thriveworks, we focus on what works for you — what helps you overcome what is difficult for you so you can have a fulfilling future. We don’t apply “cookie-cutter advice,” we work with you and fully appreciate your goals and our desire is to help improve your life.

I saw Justin for assistance with OCD. He showed me how to look at things in a way that did not allow my OCD to take over. I will would highly recommend him.
Thriveworks Counseling Knoxville

Anxiety

★★★★★
I have been taking my 7 year old grandson to see Justin. He had horrible anxiety. It saddened us to see how bad it was. He had developed tics. Justin was absolutely wonderful with him. He has overcome most of his fears and tics have went away. I would highly recommend Justin.

Cannot Recommend Enough

★★★★★
Going to Thriveworks for the past year and a half has been the most rewarding counseling experience I’ve had. Seeing Lindsey has had the single biggest impact on my emotional and mental health, especially in healing from past childhood abuse and trauma, and ongoing PTSD. Out of multiple counselors in two states, Lindsey Chandler is by far the one with whom I’ve felt the most accepted, supported, and encouraged by. I am grateful for the Thriveworks space, as it is not at all clinical nor intimidating, but entirely warn and welcoming. It is nearly a scent-free environment, which is vital for the comfort of any highly sensitive persons. I choose to drive an hour from home each visit specifically to stay loyal to a place where I finally feel safe and valued—where in the past commuting five minutes from home to work with a therapist felt like a chore and an ordeal—and I will continue to do so as I work further toward a healthier me.

Amanda Gilliam

★★★★★
Amanda Gilliam has been such a blessing in helping my daughter deal with her anxiety issues. My daughter is much stronger and confident now thanks to Amanda's expertise,dedication, and just willing to talk about whatever my daughter wants to talk about!

Mrs. Amanda

★★★★★
My son saw “Mrs. Amanda” as he affectionately called her shortly after my marriage ended in a high conflict divorce. My son was 6 years old at the time, so it was difficult for him to process his feelings without knowing how to communicate with us. Amanda Gilliam was always there to listen and provide outlets for him to speak openly about his feelings in a way that could be understood. She is top knotch in my book and I would highly recommend her as a professional!

Justin Hall

★★★★★
I was in sessions with Justin for about a year and highly recommend him. He has a deep grasp of psychology that he is constantly refreshing and renewing, and he was able to help me a lot in understanding what was driving the emotions and feelings of myself and close family members. He was a great help.

Thriveworks Counseling Knoxville

Not the place for me

★☆☆☆☆
I have attended one session alone and a second session with my then girlfriend at her urging me to seek couples therapy, in this session I was basically felt like all the relationship issues were my fault and as I was pressured more and more about my issues I walked out of the session to collect my thoughts as I was being bombarded by both my girlfriend and my therapist. Apparently after I stepped out the therapist told my girlfriend that I was worse than an addict and she was sorry but didn’t feel I was worth attending counseling with, this resulted in the end of that relationship before We even left the office. I have other issues and have realized that I am suffering from depression due to other issues and this has added to my depression. At this point I have no intention of returning to see this counselor or any other counselor there as they have added to my problems leaving me feeling like I am not good enough. Honestly if this is how they make their clients feel then as far as I’m concerned this office shouldn’t even exist. I need to find out how I can be refunded at Least a portion of the money I’ve “wasted” on this experience and hope I can find someone else who is willing to help me work through my issues and not feel persecuted.

Makes Getting Better Easy

★★★★★
I can't thank Amanda Brooks enough. She's an amazing person and is an amazing place. After calling about 15 therapists and getting immediately turned away, returned my call within the hour and Amanda was hand-picked for me and my situation. I got an appointmentheduled that day. There's ALWAYS time for me andheduling/canceling is never a hassle. There's a therapist on call 24/7 and Amanda always makes time for me when I need it. The office is a lovely, calming place and I always feel comfortable and welcome. It makes getting better easy.

Amanda Brooks has been such an excellent help to me throughout the past 2 1/2 years I've had her as my therapist. Ive been able to speak to her like I haven't even my closest friends.

My work environment had become extremely difficult over the last 5 years. Justin helped me deal with a very dysfunctional system.

Excellent

My experience with Dr. Williams has been more than helpful. I initially came to her for couples counseling, but ended up seeing her one on one and finding my sanity again. My experience has been more than helpful. I highly recommend her.
