Starting Couples therapy

What is Couples therapy?

Thriveworks Couples therapy helps couples work through their specific relationship issues. It 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 couples therapy include:

  • Jealousy
  • Trust issues
  • Infidelity
  • Opposing values
  • Different visions for the future
  • Disagreements in parenting
  • Lack of trust
  • Financial distress
  • Sex issues

How does Couples therapy work?

Couples therapy 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 couples therapy 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 Couples therapy conducted in person or online?

Couples therapy at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you and your partner.

How long does Couples therapy last?

On average, couples attend couples therapy for 12 weeks. However, couples therapy may last longer or shorter, dependent on the couples' needs, the challenges they'd like to work through, and the pace of their progress.

Need more help deciding?

When you’re in a happy, healthy relationship, the emotions that you feel are incomparable to anything else. The happiness, love, and companionship you experience can have a strength all of their own and get you through some of life’s toughest moments.

Unfortunately, when things aren’t going well, the emotions you go through can also be very strong. Learning how to process emotions like anger, disappointment, or jealousy is no easy task and can cause you to act in ways that adversely affect your relationships.

No one can be a perfect partner all of the time, and it’s normal for couples to disagree. But if your arguments are full of hurtful language, accusations, or passive aggression, you might consider seeking the help of a couples therapist.

A licensed marriage and family therapist at Thriveworks Counseling in Medford, OR can help teach you and your partner how to have productive and empathetic conversations and show you other ways to improve your relationship. Schedule your first couples therapy appointment today, so you can begin working toward a happier future together.

Deciding if Therapy Is Right for Your Relationship

Marriage and family therapy is not only for couples in crisis, and you don’t have to wait until serious issues arise in your relationship to reach out to a counselor. Many clients who attend couples counseling will often talk about how it improves their relationships and makes them better partners long term.

Proactive care can be a powerful tool in preventing or quickly resolving issues. That’s why some couples even choose to see a couples therapist for relationship “check-ups,” whether or not they’re facing a specific issue at the time.

There are countless reasons that couples decide to pursue counseling, including the following:

  • A loss of intimacy
  • Major life change
  • Financial struggles
  • Parenting challenges
  • Behavioral problems in children
  • Frequent conflict
  • Difficulty communicating clearly
  • Infidelity
  • Trust issues or jealousy
  • Clash in values or expectations
  • Stress caused by physical or mental illness

These issues can appear at any point in a relationship, whether your partnership is new or well-seasoned. Understanding the problems you’re facing and learning how to work through them can greatly improve the overall health of your relationship and may also improve your mental health and overall wellbeing.

The counselors and therapists at Thriveworks in Medford, OR are here to help you repair, rebuild, and enhance your relationship. Book your first appointment online or by calling our office today.

How Couples Counseling Can Help

Pursuing couples counseling means you and your partner can have difficult conversations and resolve problems with the guidance of a mental health professional. By taking the time to get to know you and your partner, your therapist or counselor can be sure to address your individual concerns and create a treatment plan that addresses each of the specific issues you’re facing.

The components of couples therapy sessions differ from couple to couple. The details of your treatment plan will be tailored around your experience as a couple, the problems you may be having, and the goals you have for therapy or counseling.

Some popular forms of couples therapy include the Gottman Method, imago relationship therapy, and narrative therapy. Though the methods and approach of each therapy style are unique, they do share some overarching values and sought-after skills, such as:

  • Articulating emotions helps you reflect on how you’re feeling before communicating and can help your partner better understand your thoughts, words, and actions.
  • Using “I” statements instead of blaming statements allows you to put the emphasis on your emotions, rather than blame the other person, by being specific and avoiding overgeneralization.
  • Reflective listening allows you to clarify what your partner is saying so that you’re both on the same page
  • Problem solving techniques help you and your partner identify issues between you to prevent or effectively resolve conflict at the source

These practices can help you define your needs in a relationship and determine how or whether you can continue to grow together. Strong understanding and communication are key components in restructuring or maintaining a relationship, and the counselors and therapists at Thriveworks in Medford, OR can guide you through those processes.

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.
