Manassas VA Marriage and Couples Therapy

Couples Therapy and Marriage Counseling at Thriveworks Manassas, VA—Prince William Counselors

Building a Relationship Takes Vision

Relationships can be somewhat like a jigsaw puzzle. You and your partner are both busy trying to build a complete life, a portrait of happiness and peace for both of you. You both work hard to develop joy and serenity, a harmonious vision of a relationship that will last.

Completing this piece of art isn’t something that is achieved quickly. It takes time and effort to place everything together. Your diligence and hard work provide many aspects of the puzzle. Your partner also has to contribute, sharing their ideas of how the two of you should spend your lives together as a couple. If done right, a relationship can truly be a masterpiece that complements your life and elevates those around you.

We Can Help You See the Whole Picture

Thriveworks Manassas couples counselors, psychologists, and therapists understand that this complete portrait is the goal couples are reaching for. We know creating a cohesive image of what your relationship should be can be somewhat daunting though. You and your partner may have different images in mind of how the relationship should go. While you might think of happiness as an intimate family gathering at home, spending quiet time together enjoying games, your partner may picture adventurous trips that take the two of you to romantic locations. Our therapists in Manassas VA, near Wellington and in Prince William County, have enough experience working with couples to know that neither dream is better or worse. The challenge is reconciling your vision with the picture your partner has for the future.

When you and your partner aren’t on the same page, it can cause friction in the relationship. This can manifest in a multitude of ways, from stony silence when ideas are challenged to fiery rebukes when the wrong thing is said. In some relationships, these episodes may only happen infrequently, with the relationship generally being satisfactory for both you and your partner. In other cases, these outbursts and behaviors might be more common, adding immensely to the stress you feel. No matter the type of outward display, the inner turmoil is tough to deal with.

Even if your relationship isn’t in crisis, our counselors and therapists can help you identify areas you might need to work on and address them before they become a problem. Our couples therapists and counselors can show ways to improve communications, to allow each of you to share your vision for what each of you wants from the relationship. As you and your partner share your vision, our staff can help you find ways to see the commonalities between each vision.

Depression

★★★★★
I believe my depression is coming from the lack of education, I have and the loss of so many jobs. It's finding but hard to keep a job. I'm embarrassed it has been hindering me for many years now I can't stand it I've been trying to get help for a while now and don't know where to go I am on suppression medication. I see a doctor every two weeks I have talked to him about this and until u was blacking the blue in the face. I think he sees it now. Thank good

Lisa

★★★★★
I started with Thriveworks and Lisa 3-4 months ago and I was nervous about telling a "stranger" my deepest issues and things I'm not always comfortable admitting myself. I have to say she has been amazing through an really tough relationship break and other things I was or am going through in life. She makes you feel comfortable and truly listens, providing support and options for situations which allow me to be able to look at situations differently. She has made an incredible improvement on my life and I always look forward to meeting with her. It has become a breath of fresh air for me. She is amazing and I consider her a friend. You can't go wrong.

Lisa Cornelius- My wonderful experience with her.

★★★★★
I worked with Lisa Cornelius for more than 6 months and she really is amazing. She helped me through my struggles by giving me strategies that could help me involve my well being. She is honest and she will connect with your situation by putting herself in your shoes. I've never connected with a therapist like I have with her. She really knows what she is doing. I highly recommend her!

Counseling appreciation

★★★★★
A note of thanks to my counselor Lisa Cornelius. I have seen her for 2 years now and through our sessions an finding that I am a good person who has needs and a future that I never knew at 72 I coukd look forward to. Our lives go full circle sometimes and after bad things happen we start to think we have no right to try to be anyone but who others think we should be....not true! Hopefully Lisa and I can continue this journey and I can learn to relax in the real me and be content and happy with myself...thank you Lisa ....

Ms. Lisa

★★★★★
Ms. Lisa is a very amazing counselor. She helps you understand and can relate to you, which makes you feel better. Her way of counseling is different from past counselor. It was more dull with my past counselor, but with Ms. Lisa it is different. It is better to me. I definitely recommend Ms. Lisa because everytime I leave I feel lighter and a little bit better. 😊

It was an excellent experience.

★★★★★
It was an excellent experience. I have been suffering from high anxiety and was skeptical about talking with someone who didn’t know me. After my first session I could finally see light at the end of the tunnel. I cannot wait for my next appointments so that I can learn how to take my life back.
