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

Need more help deciding?

Marriage: the ultimate commitment to another human being. Once you say, “I do” and make this promise, there is no easy way out. In fact, there’s no easy way through either. Marriage isn’t meant to be easy. It takes hard work, time, and a whole lot of love. Now, if you can promise to stand beside each other through the good and the bad—and really mean it—then you’re in good shape. But even then, you’ll encounter some challenging times and you might need help sorting the given problems out.

Marriage is not a noun; it’s a verb. It isn’t something you get.

It’s something you do. It’s the way you love your partner every day.”

–Barbara De Angelis

They can also equip you and your partner with essential communication skills, conflict resolution tools, and other tips that can help you improve your relationship.

Dr. Tressa Stiles is an amazing therapist who immediately put me at ease with the way she was able to hear what I was saying. I felt understood and that there was no judgement. While she took time to hear me, she also offered a few suggestions to try out and that I found helpful. The most important thing to me is knowing I have a safe space where I can share what’s troubling me.
