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?

It’s natural for couples to experience ups and downs throughout the course of their relationships. But sometimes the lows can stretch on for extended periods of time. Suddenly, the relationship might change for the worse without either party being able to pinpoint when or why this happened.

You and your partner might feel that the passion that once defined your relationship has been lost over time. You might be struggling with issues of trust, infidelity, or substance abuse. You may feel like something needs to be done but are unsure how to move forward.

Couples therapy and marriage counseling are powerful tools for couples who want to gain insight, avoid divorce or separation, or strengthen a marriage. Even in a healthy relationship, counseling can offer a valuable way of opening up channels of communication that may have been otherwise overlooked.

The mental health professionals at Thriveworks in Lafayette, IN provide the opportunity for couples to seek healing and fulfillment in their relationships.

Common Reasons to Seek Out Relationship Counseling

Every relationship is different and it may be difficult to identify the “right” time for any individual couple to seek counseling. There are a number of common reasons people seek out a couples therapist, including:

  • Your communication has deteriorated, resulting in frequent arguments with no resolution
  • You or your partner become withdrawn and uninterested in interacting with the other
  • You have problems with intimacy or incompatible sex drives
  • You disagree with your partner over financial issues
  • You find yourself getting stuck in recurring arguments
  • Stress over external responsibilities has strained your relationship
  • Raising children together has been challenging
  • You or your partner have experienced trauma or loss
  • You or your partner are struggling with substance abuse

If you are experiencing any of these issues, a marriage and family therapist at Thriveworks in Lafayette, IN can help you repair your relationship before it’s too late.

How Does Couples Therapy and Marriage Counseling Work?

Seeking out couples therapy is a sign that you and your partner acknowledge the issues in your relationship and are committed to working through them. One of our licensed couples counselors will be able to work with you to set goals and help you learn more about what might be simmering under the surface of your relationship.

There are common avenues that a couples therapist might take to help you and your partner heal and thrive. However, each counseling session may differ depending on the people and problems involved.

Turning to a couples counselor at Thriveworks in Lafayette, IN means building a safe environment for you and your partner to open up about your feelings. Starting therapy can feel intimidating but our therapists provide an objective perspective to guide couples toward a greater understanding of each other and their relationship. They can help you develop goals, learn positive communication methods, and rebuild trust and intimacy in your relationship.

Counselors are trained to explore different avenues of therapy and find one that best fits the relationship in question. Some of these options include:

  • The Gottman Method, which is built on the premise that all relationships have unresolved conflicts and that positive communication is the best way to work through them.
  • Emotionally focused therapy (EFT), a less structured approach that focuses on building a bond of emotional safety between partners.
  • Imago Relationship Therapy, which seeks to transform conflicts into opportunities of growth and healing.
  • Solution-focused therapy, which centers in on a particular problem and works a couple through the steps to fix it.
