Starting Marriage counseling

What is Marriage counseling?

Marriage counseling, also known as couples therapy and relationship counseling, helps couples work through their specific relationship issues. Thriveworks marriage counseling in Pueblo, CO 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 Marriage counseling include:

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

How does Marriage counseling work?

Marriage counseling 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 marriage counseling 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 Marriage counseling conducted in person or online?

Marriage 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 Marriage counseling last?

On average, couples attend marriage counseling for 12 weeks. However, 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. Marriage counselors and therapists at Thriveworks in Pueblo, CO work with their clients to create goals, decide on ideal timelines, and establish treatment plans.

Daniel and Brianna would go on dates once a week when they first became a couple. They also traveled and made friends along the way. Daniel popped the question while they were on vacation in the Bahamas and Brianna could not have been more excited to marry the man of her dreams. They got married, celebrated, and bought a house together. Then arguments started and tension grew stronger. Walls of resentment began to build up around each other and their once young love full of joy has been washed by bickering, cold shoulders, and anger.  

Does this progression sound familiar? Young love turned into fights almost once a week. Having ups and downs in a relationship is completely normal. It is a part of young love that often gets overlooked. However, it is very much a part of committed relationships. When the challenges you and your spouse are facing become too hard to handle on your own, you may find it beneficial to turn to a licensed marriage and family therapist (LMFT) to help you work through those problems.

At Thriveworks Pueblo Counseling, we have a team of marriage counselors who have the training and skills to help couples work through their problems and come out more connected to each other than they were before. If you feel like you and your spouse could use some additional support in building a stronger foundation, it may be time to reach out. When you are ready to get started, just give our office a call and one of our scheduling specialists can set you up with a licensed psychologist as soon as possible.

Who Can Benefit from Working with a Thriveworks Pueblo Marriage Counselor?  

You and your spouse would not have gotten married to each other and said your vows if you were not committed or did not love them. We get it! You just may not be able to continue down the path you are on if things don’t change and change soon. You want to be happily, madly in love again but the thought of sometimes sitting next to your partner on the couch makes you already stressed. Maybe just watching your spouse put away their clothes makes you mad. Does any of this sound familiar?

Here are some common reasons why we see married couples seek out help at Thriveworks Pueblo Counseling:

  • Infidelity
  • Psychological issues
  • Mental health concerns such as anxiety and depression
  • Substance abuse and addiction
  • Financial strains and stresses
  • Major life changes such as moving to a new city or starting a new job
  • Grief
  • Trauma or PTSD
  • Parenting concerns
  • Struggling to get pregnant
  • Poor communication
  • Un-aligned values

Whether you are dealing with something currently or if you are just feeling the effects of something that has happened in your past, we can help you. Even if the problem you are facing is not on this list, there are tools and resources we can provide you to help you navigate these murky waters. If you are interested in reconnecting with your spouse and hurdling the obstacles in your way together, reach out for a helping hand.

How Can Marriage Counseling Help Us?

When you first start marriage counseling, your therapist will sit down and listen to both of your individual needs, wants, and goals. This will help your counselor better identify where the cracks are in your relationship in order to come up with a unique plan of action based on your situation. Not only do our psychologists have the training and experience needed to help you resolve your issues, but they also have a multitude of skills and techniques that are proven beneficial to married couples. A few things you may expect to tackle in a marriage counseling session at Thriveworks Pueblo are:

  1. Recognize when help is needed to make a change and move forward
  2. Acknowledge the imperfection of your relationship
  3. Learn active listening techniques
  4. Learn better communication tools
  5. Anger management
  6. Acknowledge that both you and your partner both have flaws
  7. How to work better as a team
  8. Increase the amount of quality time you spend together

If there are any things on this list that sound like you could benefit from, that is great! Although these are not the only ways we can help you during your sessions, these are great starting points for couples. Finding out what works best for you both on your own can be virtually impossible. Let us help you find the peace and acceptance you have been looking for.
