Starting Couples & marriage counseling

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

  • The Gottman Method
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Emotionally-focused therapy (EFT)
  • Solution-focused brief therapy (SFBT)
  • Strength-based therapy

What kind of therapist is best for couples?

At Thriveworks, Couples & marriage counseling is led by licensed professionals — often licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFTs) — who are experts in their field and best-equipped to help 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?

It’s tempting to compare our relationships to those in fairy tales or romance novels. But stories are just approximations of real-life meant to inspire, connect, entertain, and teach us lessons. While there is plenty to learn from relationships on the big screen, we set ourselves up for failure when we start to believe that those romances are what “normal” relationships look like.

In reality, relationships are far more nuanced and complicated than some Hollywood films may let on. Whether you’ve been dating for two months or you’ve been together for 20 years, you’re bound to face ups and downs. After all, two people spending lots of time together are sure to face disagreements and rough patches at some point!

What’s far more important than the rough patches themselves is how you handle them. Relationships can feel wonderful when they’re going well but nurturing and commitment are often required to keep that feeling going.

Even celebrities share these same struggles. Take famed actor and director Bryan Cranston, for example. Cranston has been married to his wife, Robin Dearden, for over 30 years but has been very transparent about the work he and Dearden have had to put into their relationship to make it this far.

Cranston’s career has often put a strain on his marriage and limited the time he can spend with his family. As a result, he and Dearden have seen a licensed counselor over the years to keep lines of communication open and help make it through their rough patches. They’ve even made it a rule in their relationship that they must schedule a counseling session any time one of them feels the need to go.

If you’re going through a tough time in your relationship, you might benefit from couples therapy, too. The marriage and couples therapists at Thriveworks in Munster, IN are here to help you work through your challenges, feel more connected, and forge a stronger bond together. Reach out today to get started.

Should I Consider Starting Couples Counseling?

The challenges you face with your partner are your own and how you handle them is completely up to you. However, constantly trying to work through issues on your own with little progress will eventually catch up to your relationship.

If you feel like you are getting nowhere when you have a disagreement, that you are growing apart, or that the same problems keep cropping up, a licensed marriage and family therapist might be able to help you.

Consider turning to a mental health professional when:

  • You and your partner have trouble communicating
  • The same arguments occur without resolution
  • You feel like your needs aren’t being met
  • You’re unhappy with your level of intimacy
  • Your lack of confidence is affecting your relationship
  • External stresses are impacting your relationship
  • You or your partner struggle with substance abuse or addictive behaviors
  • You’re experiencing child-rearing difficulties

If your relationship is in trouble, it’s up to you and your partner to find your way to happiness again. Couples therapy sessions at Thriveworks in Munster, IN can help you get there, one step at a time.

How Does Couples Therapy and Marriage Counseling Work?

Do you feel like you and your partner may have built a wall between you? Is there something in the way that is preventing you from feeling how you used to?

Many couples seek out marriage and family therapy to help break down these boundaries in a safe and collaborative environment. Our therapists are trained to customize your sessions to address your concerns so you can get on the same page again.

The first step is to give both of you the opportunity to share your side of the story. Your licensed therapist can help you to do so in a constructive way that does not lead to yelling, lost tempers, or arguments. These appointments are a place for you and your partner to work through your problems with the guidance of a non-judgmental, third-party perspective.

Couples therapy at Thriveworks in Munster, IN could inspire a new beginning for you and your partner. If you’re ready to learn a new way to deal with problems and create a stronger bond, consider reaching out for an appointment.
