  • Opposing values
  • Different visions for the future
  • Disagreements in parenting
  • Lack of trust

  • 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?

The decision to seek counseling or therapy services is an independent choice that needs to be made between both partners. But when you do decide to team up with a mental health professional, it can alleviate the burden that both of you are sharing, and open you up to a professional’s perspective on your shared issues. Some common indications that you’re experiencing unhealthy relationship dynamics include: 

  • Lying and other forms of emotional manipulation
  • Avoiding physical touch or sex 
  •  Passive-aggressive or abusive behavior 
  • Inability to respect each other’s boundaries
  • Cheating 
  • Arguments that last for hours or days 

Keep in mind that your relationship is unique—you may have a different, but still equally detrimental situation occurring. Don’t feel like you can’t share what’s going on with your couples therapist or marriage counselor. The more you tell them, the better they’ll be able to assist you with repairing the relationship you hold close. 

At Thriveworks in Pasadena, TX, our marriage counselors and couples therapists are here to help you both find common ground and healing. Contact our office to get started today.

The Benefits of Relationship Counseling

  • Establish healthy boundaries 
  • Highlight the importance and need for compromise
  • Rebuild trust after infidelity or dishonesty 
  • Rekindle sexual intimacy together
