Online Marriage Counseling and Couples Therapy in Ohio — Therapists and Counselors for Couples
All couples, no matter how long they have been together, face highs and lows of their relationships. It is normal! It’s only when those highs and lows are back and forth too frequently or when the challenges they are facing get too tough to handle on their own does it become a serious problem. Take a moment to think about the health of your relationship and see if there are areas that could be improved through couples counseling.
You might be like Cary and Ryan. They have been together for almost five years and are ready to take the next step in their relationship but they both have looming feelings of, “what if this does not work out?” They struggle sometimes with communication and aren’t really sure of what the other person thinks about when it comes to finances, having children, where to live, and how to live. Or, you might be like Miranda and Kyle who have been married for over 15 years and are struggling to raise their adolescent child. One of them will do one thing and the other person will do another. It not only confuses their teen but allows their teen to manipulate them into getting things. They aren’t sure how to properly communicate in order to effectively parent and need some assistance.
If you and your partner are struggling to communicate, make certain decisions, or have a major challenge you are facing, you might benefit from working with a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT). At Thriveworks Ohio, our online marriage counselors and couples therapists have the training and set of skills to help you and your significant other tackle the obstacles and goals you have in a safe and comfortable environment.

When Is the Best Time to Work with a Couples or Marriage Counselor?
There is no “right” time to work with a therapist or counselor when life is throwing you curveballs and you feel like you do not have any extra free time. However, it might be beneficial if you and your spouse are frequently arguing, not speaking to each other, having a lack of intimacy, or are feeling disconnected. Here is a list of common reasons why couples choose to seek professional counseling:
- Financial disagreements
- Parenting styles
- Major life changes
- Mental illnesses such as anxiety or depression
- Work/life balance
- Lack of communication
- Lack of intimacy
- Anger issues
If you don’t see your specific concern on the list, don’t worry! There are so many unique reasons why couples see out the help of a psychologist. From couples therapy, you and your partner can learn communication skills, how to listen to each other more effectively, tools to make decisions that meet all needs in the middle, and more. Don’t wait any longer. Get the help you and your partner need to start living a healthier and happier life.
How Does Online Marriage Counseling and Couples Therapy Work?
Couples therapy and counseling is designed to help both partners not only grow together, but as individuals to better the bond of their relationship. In your beginning sessions, your couples therapist will assess both of your needs in order to come up with a unique plan of care to help you achieve your goals. Our counselors at Thriveworks Ohio Counseling will find out how the change or concern came on, what stage of your relationship it was in, and determine if your issues are chronic or not. They will then equip you with the tools and methods we mentioned earlier so you can tackle future concerns effectively.
When starting with online counseling, you can choose between phone or video chat. Both options are great and provide our clients with a multitude of benefits. Some of those benefits are:
