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 Mt Pleasant, SC 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 Mt Pleasant, SC work with their clients to create goals, decide on ideal timelines, and establish treatment plans.

Need more help deciding?

There was a time when you couldn’t imagine life without your spouse. You committed nights, weekends, and early mornings to being together and building your relationship. But over time, as the pressures of everyday life mounted and the energy you dedicated to your marriage diminished, your partnership may have suffered. This is more common among marriages than you may think. You want your marriage to work and your commitment is strong, but it’s become hard to ignore the issues facing your relationship. Many husbands and wives find themselves wondering:

  • How did we get here?
  • Why can’t we get out of this rut?
  • Is our marriage going to fail?
  • Why can’t we communicate better?
  • How can we rediscover the passion in our relationship?
  • Do we need marriage counseling?

Thriveworks of Mt. Pleasant is here to help you navigate this delicate time in your marriage. Our therapists can help you make sense of the issues facing your relationship and help you answer questions that feel scary to ask. At Thriveworks of Mt. Pleasant, you’ll find the support and tools you need to move forward in your marriage.

What Causes Marriage and Relationship Problems?

There are many reasons why couples experience difficulty in their marriage. There are the demands of work and parenting. There may be financial trouble, an inability to communicate, or a lack of interest in resolving conflict. Maybe there’s a lack of intimacy. Or maybe infidelity has replaced happiness and love with a lack of trust and feelings of shame. 

Every committed relationship is unique, however, and these are just some examples of the reasons couples seek marriage counseling from Thriveworks in Mt. Pleasant. We know that marriage requires hard work, trust, dedication, communication — and the opportunity to reflect on what works and what doesn’t. We’re here to help you navigate the difficulties you’re experiencing in a safe space. We work with you to renew your commitment to each other, and plan for a stronger, healthier future together.

At Thriveworks of Mt. Pleasant, our marriage counselors help married couples make lasting changes that bring them closer together and strengthen their relationship. If you’re ready to move toward a happier future with your spouse, give us a call today at 843-606-6223 to schedule your first marriage counseling session.

When Is the Right Time to Seek Marriage Counseling?

Timing is one of the most critical elements in determining whether marriage counseling will work. Couples tend to wait too long to reach out for help in repairing their marriage because they don’t know who to turn to, or they feel like there isn’t time in their schedules for therapy. We know that your life is busy. We understand that you have to juggle too much as it is, and your marriage only makes things more difficult to manage. We are available at times that are designed to make room for your existing commitments. We offer day, evening and weekend appointments. In addition, our counselors are available by phone and email to help you stay in touch between your scheduled sessions.

We make marriage counseling affordable by accepting most major insurance plans. You don’t have to wait weeks or months to be seen by a therapist. We can schedule your first-time appointment in less than 48 hours, so you can begin rebuilding your marriage now.

Call us at 843-606-6223 to schedule your appointment with a marriage counselor at Thriveworks in Mt. Pleasant today.

My therapist at Thriveworks, Susan, is warm and and relatable. I am a late-diagnosed autistic woman. I am basically now learning what everyone else learned in kindergarten. I have a history of broken marriages and jobs I was invited to leave because I didn't fit in, to put it mildly. She has helped me in so many ways, and I can now see decisions I made that I thought were just what had happened to me. I feel much more capable and hopeful now. I wish I could have met her years ago. I have gone to many therapists over the years, but now I can see how I can feel hopeful about my life and my relationships with my daughters and my grandchildren.
