Starting Couples therapy

What is couples therapy?

Thriveworks Couples therapy helps couples work through their specific relationship issues. It 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 couples therapy include:

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

How does couples therapy work?

Couples therapy 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 couples therapy 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 couples therapy conducted in person or online?

Couples therapy at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you and your partner.

How long does couples therapy last?

On average, couples attend couples therapy for 12 weeks. However, couples therapy may last longer or shorter, dependent on the couples’ needs, the challenges they’d like to work through, and the pace of their progress.

Need more help deciding?

Every day, millions of couples meet and connect, starting a journey they hope will last a lifetime. Like you, these couples look forward to the happiness their relationship can bring. Your relationship may have started with a simple shared glance at a party, a spark that helped the two of you feel something that led to a deeper connection. Or your relationship may have taken more time, beginning as a simple friendship built on mutual respect and concern, but growing deeper as you and your partner learnt to trust one another. 

No matter how relationships begin, their goal is generally the same: to find someone to share your happiness and joy. People want to gain the support and trust of a partner who they can, in turn, build up. Sometimes these goals seem to come with ease, achievements gained just from spending time with your partner. The two of you seem to easily meld together as you walk life’s journey. But it’s not always that seamless.

No relationship is immune from the stresses and struggles of life. The expert couples therapists and marriage counselors at Thriveworks in Oklahoma City, OK can facilitate compassionate, effective discussions between you and your partner to help you mutually find solutions to your issues. 

When Is It Time to See a Marriage Counselor?

Any number of issues can arise over the course of an intimate relationship. And these issues can crop up with almost anyone, no matter how long you’ve been together. For example, even the most resilient of couples can sometimes struggle with the following:

  • Miscommunication 
  • Misunderstandings
  • Repeated arguments
  • Distrust
  • Lack of affection
  • Anger management
  • Sex life problems
