What kind of therapist is best for 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?

Would you consider your relationship with your partner to be perfect? Probably not. Even the most “perfect” couples have their issues. As you know, relationships aren’t easy and take a lot of work. Sometimes it can feel like a never-ending uphill battle.

Take Vanessa and Jason, for example. They’ve been noticing that they don’t actually have a lot in common. This is driving a wedge between them because they’re always off doing their own things and never spending quality time together. Or what about Owen and Theresa who have been married for over a decade and are in the midst of piecing their marriage back together after infidelity. Regardless of what’s going on between you and your significant other, there is help in finding a resolution.

Marriage counselors and couples therapists have years of experience in helping couples get back to a healthy spot in their relationships. Luckily, these mental health professionals at Thriveworks Counseling in Memphis, TN are no different. We only work with the best counselors and therapists because we want you to have access to the quality mental health care you need.

When you and your partner are ready to start making healthy changes in your relationship, consider giving us a call.

But What If Our Issues Are Too Big or Too Small for Therapy?

Lucky for you, there is no such thing as a problem that is too big or too small for therapy. Whether you just want to strengthen your connection or overcome something like infidelity, our couples therapists and marriage counselors can help. Also, it’s easy to feel like you’re the only ones going through these issues. Know that you are not alone.

Our mental health professionals can help ease you into the therapy process in a way that makes sense for you and your partner. A few of the matters that the professionals offering couples counseling at Thriveworks Counseling in Memphis are skilled at addressing include:

  • Career issues, such as overworking, job loss, or relocating
  • Opposing views on raising children
  • Financial strain, stress, and trouble managing budgets
  • Stress from relationships with friends or family members
  • Lack of clear communication and/or active listening
  • Infidelity from one or both partners and are struggling to regain trust
  • Major life changes such as starting school again, moving to a new city, or losing a loved one

These are just a few of the areas in which one of our counselors could help you and your partner. We understand how painful it can be to feel alone when you’re with your significant other. To prevent further deterioration of your relationship and health, seek therapy as soon as problems start developing.

How Can Marriage Counseling and Couples Therapy Help?

These types of therapies can help you not only work through your issues, including the ones listed above, but it can also give you and your partner the tools and skills to move forward and continue to have a happy and healthy relationship for years to come.

Here at Thriveworks, we understand that no two couples are the same. That’s why when you work with one of our marriage counselors, they will create a custom plan of action based on both of your individual needs, wants, and goals. A few of the ways that we can facilitate a process of growth include:

  1. Providing a neutral, safe space for open dialogue
  2. Setting expectations and times for change
  3. Identify toxic patterns
  4. Improve communication
  5. Developing conflict resolution skills
  6. Improve on active listening
  7. Learn anger and stress management skills.

Relationships take a lifelong, strong commitment. However, there are some instances when ending the relationship is the best option for both partners. While we will use that as a last resort option, our counselors can help you make those tough decisions. We want you to receive the assistance and healing your marriage (or relationship) needs.
