Starting Couples & marriage counseling

What is couples & marriage counseling?

  • 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?

Whether we like it or not, romantic relationships aren’t always a walk in the park. And sometimes, partners need support and assistance to find solid ground again after things have veered off course. Couples therapy and marriage counseling can be a great resource for partners who want to improve their relationship but might not know where to start.

If you and your partner want to improve your dynamic and are wondering, “Is there couples therapy near me?”, Thriveworks Lubbock can help. At Thriveworks in Lubbock, TX, we’d like to offer you support while you and your partner reconnect with the guidance of one of our couples therapists or relationship counselors. Using their professional experience and evidence-based practices, our therapists can help you and the one you love correct unhealthy dynamics and rekindle the bond you share. 

What Is Couples Therapy? What Is Marriage Counseling?

Couples therapy is a form of psychotherapy that focuses on improving the relationship between partners. Similarly, marriage counseling does the same—provides a space and structure for couples to work out their issues and improve their relationship—but is more specifically for married couples.

Even though talking with a mental health professional is an independent choice that both you and your partner will have to make, teaming up with a counselor or therapist can offer you ways to cope with anger, frustration, and even help you to communicate better. Our providers in Lubbock, TX can assist you as you both: 

  • Establish healthy boundaries 
  • Highlight the importance and need for compromise
  • Rebuild trust after infidelity or dishonesty 
  • Rekindle sexual intimacy together 
  • Help both partners manage anger or anxiety 

Marriage counselors and couples therapists are committed to helping you to preserve your relationship and to improve the quality of your connection. That’s why being open to talking with them is so important—it can open the door to personalized mental health care that fits your unique relationship and its dynamics.  

Do I Need Relationship Counseling?

Ultimately, the decision is up to you and your partner as to whether or not you should seek mental health services. But with that in mind, there are several common signs that might indicate that a relationship’s dynamics have soured, including: 

  • Arguments that last for hours or days 
  • Passive-aggressive or abusive behavior 
  • Inability to respect each other’s boundaries
  • Cheating 
  • Avoiding physical touch or sex 
  • Lying and other forms of emotional manipulation

If you and the one you love are experiencing any of the above symptoms, it might be helpful to reach out to connect with a mental health professional at Thriveworks in Lubbock, TX. There’s no shame in confiding in a couples therapist or marriage counselor about the issues you’re faced with. It may be helpful to view seeking mental health services as a proactive way to preserve the relationship that both of you benefit from.
