Starting Marriage counseling

What is marriage counseling?

Marriage counseling, also known as couples therapy and relationship counseling, helps couples work through their specific relationship issues. Thriveworks marriage counseling in Milford, CT 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 Marriage counseling include:

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

How does marriage counseling work?

Marriage counseling 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 marriage counseling 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 marriage counseling conducted in person or online?

Marriage 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 marriage counseling last?

On average, couples attend marriage counseling for 12 weeks. However, 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. Marriage counselors and therapists at Thriveworks in Milford, CT work with their clients to create goals, decide on ideal timelines, and establish treatment plans.

New Haven Marriage Counseling: Does It Work?

You might be wondering, “Does marriage counseling work?” Let’s understand the goal of this type of therapy to answer this question. Marriage counseling is a form of couples therapy that helps spouses identify and work through the conflicts in their marriage. With a marriage counselor’s help, you and your partner can better understand areas of improvement in your relationship.

Marriage counseling is led by qualified, licensed therapists known as marriage and family therapists (LMFT) who can offer both marriage and family counseling. These professionals have completed graduate or postgraduate degrees and have specific skills, training, and experience in helping married couples. This form of counseling is often short-term: In some circumstances, both individuals will attend and participate in every session; in other circumstances, one partner might work with the counselor alone. This depends on the specific plan that your counselor or psychologist designs based on your relationship needs and marriage counseling goals.

Who Can Benefit from Marriage Counseling?

A wide range of couples can benefit from marriage counseling. Some couples decide to pursue marriage counseling to further solidify or strengthen their relationship, while other couples seek out marriage counseling because their marriage is in trouble. Here are a few specific issues that are commonly discussed in marriage counseling:

  • Conflicts in parenting
  • Anger issues
  • Infidelity

Gina is an incredibly skilled and talented clinician. She has the unique gift of making clients immediately feel safe and understood even upon first meeting. Her passion for the work is palpable. Her knowledge is vast and her approach is sensitive, gentle, supportive and compassionate, yet direct. Gina helped me navigate a tremendously challenging time in my life and afforded me the confidence to pursue personal goals that had initially felt unattainable. She taught me tangible skills to navigate anxiety and feelings of overwhelm during our work together and our sessions were always insightful and productive. Gina will lead you on a path to self discovery without all of the therapy lingo and jargon and will always help you to feel as though you’re the expert on your own life- because you are. I couldn’t recommend Gina more. A true diamond in the rough!
