Couples Counseling in Newark, DE—Counselors and Therapists in Newark

Relationships are hard. Do you agree? Anybody who has entered a relationship for any duration of time would probably say yes. We get into silly arguments, we get irritated by one another’s habits, and we know just what buttons to press. This is to be expected—sometimes, though, relationships are harder than they should be; and the problems that arise threaten to end the relationship altogether.

“A strong relationship requires choosing to love each other, even in those moments when you struggle to like each other.” –Anonymous

If you are struggling to resolve the issues at hand, but you aren’t ready to call it quits, consider working with a couples counselor. Couples counselors specialize in helping couples work through a wide array of challenges, from jealousy to infidelity, financial struggles, quarrels in parenting, and more. They know that relationships can be difficult but they also know that they are salvageable if both people are willing to put in the work.

The couples counselors at Thriveworks Newark are ready to help you and your partner today. They can offer assistance and support, which will prove valuable to your relationship. Does this sound like something you’re interested in or could benefit from? Call us at (302) 724-6662 to schedule an appointment today.

Should We Look into Couples Counseling?

Many couples deny needing couples counseling, even when they’re faced with difficult problems that plague their relationship for months or even years. Why? Because they think that seeking couples counseling is admittance to a failing relationship. This, however, isn’t true—instead, seeking counseling for your relationship shows incredible strength. And it proves that you truly care about and love your partner.

There are many reasons why a couple might seek couples counseling (all of which we couldn’t possibly name). Some of these instances include:

  • Infidelity
  • Jealousy
  • Financial strain
  • Quarrels in parenting
  • Opposing visions for the future
  • Addiction
  • Anger issues
  • Loss of a loved one
  • Mental illness
  • Religious or political differences

Remember: This list is not comprised of every possible issue discussed in couples counseling. If you and your partner could use help overcoming an issue or learning tools for overcoming issues that may arise in the future, you could find value in couples counseling. Call Thriveworks Newark today to schedule an appointment.

Great scheduling team!

★★★★★
I called to make an appointment for my daughter and Kenyata was SO friendly and helpful. She answered all of my questions and was so easy to talk to. Scheduling as a first-time patient is always so difficult, but this was so easy and accomodating. If the scale is 1-5, 5 being the best, I'd give my experience a 10!

The right kind of help when I needed it

★★★★★
Dr Thompson provides great support and advice. She helped me through a rough time in my life and gave me the right kind of help when I needed it. I learned a ton about myself, cleaned up some past baggage that was weighing me down, and got my life back on track. I still use the skills she taught me in my relationships, at work, with my kids and I feel in control of my life. I’m not happy go lucky 100% of the time, but I’m much more relaxed and open and confident that I can handle whatever comes up. Big thanks to Dr Thompson!

Caring, competent therapists,

★★★★★
When Dr Thompson announced she was opening a Thriveworks office in Newark, I was thrilled. Over the past 20 years, I have referred many clients to Dr Thompson and found her to be sensitive, caring, ethical, and highly skilled with a wide range of clients. She was able to connect with folks who’ve had difficulty finding a good fit with other clinicians, and she seemed to know just the right approach with some of my clients who’d tried therapy in the past, but didn’t really feel at ease. Her compassion, experience, and excellent clinical skills make her my first choice when referring out; I would send my own family members to Dr Thompson.
