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?

Nobody’s relationship is perfect all the time. Couples go through many life events and experiences together, both good and bad. Even the most well-matched couples have differences and disagreements, regardless of how flawless things may appear on the surface. Challenging situations often cause emotions to run high and you may lose your ability to resolve conflict or rationalize with one another when you’re upset.

All couples go through times of trial throughout the course of their relationships. The way you handle challenges together can make all the difference in the quality and outlook of your relationship. There’s no shame in asking for help to resolve conflict within your relationship or help you navigate a painful or distressing situation. Couples counseling can give you the tools you need to build and maintain a healthy, strong relationship that lasts.

If you and your partner are having trouble seeing eye to eye or your relationship has room for improvement, consider meeting with a couples therapist or counselor at Thriveworks Counseling in Longmont, CO. A licensed marriage and family therapist can help you work through your toughest issues and prepare you to face the challenges that lie ahead. Call our office today to set up your first session.

Should We Consider Couples Counseling?

There are many reasons you might consider couples counseling or marriage and family therapy. A couples therapist or counselor can help you fix what is broken in your relationship, guide you through significant adjustments, and strengthen your connection to prepare for your future together.

Some of the reasons you may consider couples counseling include the following:

  • Conflict resolution
  • Stress from sources outside of the relationship
  • Infidelity or dishonesty
  • A breakdown in communication or trouble expressing feelings
  • Major life changes
  • Premarital counseling
  • Behavioral issues in children
  • Financial issues or disagreements
  • Parenting difficulties
  • Differences in political or religious beliefs
  • Mental health issues
  • Substance abuse or addiction

You and your partner may struggle with more than one of these circumstances plus other specific issues throughout the course of your relationship. The therapists and counselors at Thriveworks in Longmont, CO can guide you through effective ways to meet your relationship issues head-on and strengthen your special connection.

How Can Our Relationship Benefit From Couples Counseling?

Couples therapy or counseling is about more than just resolving conflict; it provides tools for communicating and helping you both get what you want and need out of your relationship. The vast majority of couples who pursue counseling find it improves their relationships, sometimes right away.

One of the most prominent takeaways couples gain from sessions is enhanced communication. A relationship cannot thrive without clear communication, whether it’s voicing your honest opinion on pizza toppings or being upfront about how you’d prefer to raise your kids. Your couples therapist or marriage counselor will show you how to express your thoughts and emotions so you’re more likely to stay on the same page long term.

You may also work on active listening techniques to fully understand what your partner needs from you and from your life together. Being a good listener can change everything about the way you communicate, connect, and learn with your partner.

Couples counseling can also teach you how to rectify disagreements amicably. During therapy or counseling sessions, your counselor will show you how to identify and respect one another’s differences and solve problems as a cohesive unit without arguing.

Many couples struggle in their relationship for months or years before they finally decide to pursue couples therapy. But taking the problems between you seriously and resolving them before they become severe can make resolution easier.

You don’t have to wait any longer to take the next step in improving your relationship and reigniting your spark. Connect with Thriveworks in Longmont, CO today, and you may be able to speak with a licensed marriage and family therapist within 24 to 48 hours.

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.
