Starting Couples & marriage counseling

What is couples & marriage counseling?

Couples therapy and marriage counseling, also known as relationship counseling, helps couples work through their specific relationship issues. Some examples of common focuses within couples therapy and marriage counseling include:

  • 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?

Frankie and her boyfriend Ryan have been having difficulties talking with each other. While both of them can admit to avoiding certain things in the past, their inability to talk things through seems to be getting worse. With all the issues that stand between them, Ryan worries that Frankie is losing interest in their relationship. In order to salvage what’s left, he’s considering whether they could both benefit from talking to a couples therapist about the communication issues that they’re facing. 

He decided to talk to Frankie at dinner the other evening, and asked her opinion about whether they should see a therapist or counselor. At first, Frankie was surprised to hear that her partner was interested in talking with a mental health professional. But after some thinking, Frankie feels like she agrees with Ryan—and if they want to preserve their relationship, taking proactive measures to do so seems like a good idea. They’re both on board and are eager to connect with a couples therapist to get the help they need. 

Romantic relationships aren’t always a walk in the park. And sometimes, as partners, we need some extra support and assistance to find solid ground again after our relationship has veered off course. At Thriveworks in Lincoln, NE, we’d like to offer you professional guidance to help you and your partner reconnect. Talk with one of our couples therapists or relationship counselors. With their help, you and the one you love may be able to correct unhealthy dynamics and rekindle the bond you share. 

Do We Need Relationship Counseling?

Relationship counseling may be a way for both you and your partner to feel more comfortable with being open with each other. Though it’s possible that some defense mechanisms that you both have developed might have been helpful at one point, sometimes our habits from the past have to change to meet the current needs of the present. Signs that you and your partner might have issues or dynamics that could be resolved through relationship counseling include: 

  • Arguments that escalate quickly and aren’t resolved 
  • Passive-aggressive behavior that inhibits communication 
  • Hurtful comments or actions that aren’t addressed
  • Infidelity 
  • Feeling emotionally distant 
  • Lack of interest in physical intimacy, or anxiety about sex 
  • Lying or manipulation 

If you’ve been experiencing any of these signs, it’s possible that both of you could benefit from seeing a relationship counselor. Being open to talking with a relationship counselor can establish new ways for both of you to connect and having a third party to help you facilitate your conversation is always beneficial. A marriage counselor or couples therapist can help you both to: 

  • Establish healthy boundaries for communication 
  • Rebuild trust after infidelity or dishonesty 
  • Rekindle sexual intimacy 
  • Regulate their anger or stress 
  • Highlight the importance and need for compromise in their relationship

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.
