Marriage Counseling in Peachtree City, GA—Counselors and Therapists

What if your marriage could be different? What if you did not fight every night? What if you did not sleep in separate rooms? What if you weren’t so distant from your spouse? What if you actually connected? What if you felt that excitement to see your partner that you once did? What if it could all be different?

These are often called the “Miracle Questions” and they are used in therapy to help clients define what they would like to be different about their lives. It can be difficult to even answer these questions. Helping couples and individuals create a new reality is not easy. But at Thriveworks, we have the skills and experience to help you make this happen. You and your spouse do not need to suffer in silence anymore.

Marriage is not always easy. When we walk down the aisle, we may expect long talks at night, falling asleep in each other’s arms, flowers, and laughter for years to come. However, this is not reality for every day of our lives together. Life throws us all unexpected challenges and hardships. Financial struggles, illness, adultery, the list goes on and on of the difficulties that couples may face in their time together.

Thriveworks marriage counselors can help you and your spouse clearly define the problems that you face, help determine goals for success and change, and then walk on the journey of healing and establishing a new, happier normal for you both in your marriage.

Why Pursue Marriage Counseling at Thriveworks Peachtree?

There are many reasons that couples choose to seek counseling. Some couples are looking for a “check-up” because they feel some distance or unhappiness that did not used to be present. Things are not totally broken; they just need some assistance. Other couples are already separated, one partner may feel completely done with the relationship, and may not even see the point of counseling. Whatever the reason that you have sought out this page, you are not alone. With marriage statistics in the abysmal way that we find them, many couples have not yet gone through with a divorce but are living with an “emotional divorce” where they are simply ships passing in the night. Problems in a marriage can be caused by many things. Some of these may include:

  • Financial trouble
  • Health problems
  • Adultery
  • Jealousy and lack of trust
  • Infertility
  • Problems with children or extended family
  • Loss of employment
  • Relocation
  • Anger issues
  • Lack of communication
  • Psychological problems
  • Addictions

Do these sound familiar? Perhaps you and your spouse are facing several challenges on this list. Or perhaps you cannot even pinpoint the cause of your distance, but you know it’s there. You know that you and your partner could be closer, have more of a connection, know each other better. We are ready to help you discover if that is true. We are ready to explore your marriage and help you and your spouse establish realistic goals for the future of your relationship.

The Importance of Quality Time and Physical Touch

Getting coffee, watching a favorite show together, taking a walk, having a long conversation; the love style “quality time” is about giving your undivided attention to your spouse. The activity that takes place during the quality time is really unimportant.  Being fully present and focusing on the other person is what matters.

An embrace, a kiss, holding hands, or leaning your head on your spouse’s shoulder can all be expressions of physical love. This is an important love language for many.  Physical contact and touch can relate to intimacy, but it also refers to simple human contact. It is very beneficial to learn how both yourself and your spouse best receive and give love. Once you know your spouse’s most significant expression of love, you can put a great deal of deposits into this type of love language.

Thriveworks marriage counselors can help you put these exercises and theories, as well as others, into practice in your relationship. These can work quickly to help establish new patterns of interaction and communication in your relationship. We want to help you create a very wealthy “love bank.”

of that time. What comes across first and foremost is her caring and concern for her clients and her determination to see that their needs are met. She brings to her work a wide range of experience and training along with confidence that is reassuring and a comfort to those in distress. She can deal calmly with the most severe issues as well as with problems of daily living. In the time that I've known her, she has been licensed in three different states to practice in a variety of settings. If you come to her in a time of need, in a time of emotional upheaval or difficult questions, I don't think you will find a more competent or more caring therapist.

A game changer for me!!

Without going on an on, but I may - - I feel that Stacey Franklin, my counselor, is literally the best kept se...Read more

cret (that I will not keep a secret) if you haven't met her - and if you have not been to Thriveworks yet, than that is the second best kept secret. Thriveworks is the most incredible counseling place that I have ever been to - when you walk in - it offers such a tranquil and serene atmosphere, where every counselor greets you with a very welcoming spirit. I have been to multiple counselors throughout my life, in multiple states, and it is without hesitation that this environment is incredible. When you call to schedule an appointment to meet with a counselor, they work really hard to try and match you with a counselor that best fits the struggles that you are going through - but at any point during your counseling sessions, if you feel that the match may not be perfect - they want you to be honest so that they can try and fix it, or match you with someone that may be a better fit for you within the practice or refer you to someone they know outside of the practice. That is what an amazing practice and counselor should do! Stacey is by far the BEST counselor I have every worked with. She is genuine, honest, skilled, raw, empathetic, compassionate, pneumatic, accepting, flexible, communicable, my safe place, and so VERY kind. Her aura is something I have never seen before and although I am on a life journey of discovery and acceptance, I am so thankful for her to be on this journey with me because I do not know what I would have done with out her. If you are reading this review and are wondering if this is the place for you - I challenge you to give it a shot - it was a life changer for me.
