Marriage Counseling in Richmond, VA (Shockoe Bottom)—Marriage Counselors and Therapists

Whether we like it or not, our most important relationships will be tested. Those with our friends, family members, and—of course—our spouses. Oftentimes, these are the people we spend the majority of our time with. We make important decisions with our spouses, and we share with them our greatest dreams and desires. It’s only natural that we disagree, fight, even despise these individuals from time to time.

Fortunately, there are mental health professionals who specialize in helping these couples to resolve these arguments, better understand the other’s perspective, and ultimately build a better foundation for their relationship. These professionals are called marriage counselors, and they have impressive knowledge, skills, and experience helping couples improve their marriage.

Could My Marriage Benefit from Marriage Counseling?

Before couples go into marriage counseling or couples therapy, they often debate whether they really “need” it. The real question is, could your relationship benefit from professional and unbiased guidance? Most people would respond positively when the question is framed in this way. Now, the specific benefits can vary from couple to couple, as each relationship has different needs, problems, and goals. That being said, the marriage counselors at Thriveworks Richmond, VA (Shockoe Bottom) strive to provide the following for all of their clients:

  1. A safe space: Arguing with your spouse probably isn’t your favorite thing to do, but the occasional disagreement is actually a sign of a healthy relationship! It shows that you and your partner have your own opinions and feel comfortable sharing as well as debating those opinions. A marriage counselor can provide you with a safe, comfortable space for having these conversations and offer their own professional feedback, too.
  2. Helpful guidance and support: The marriage counselors at Thriveworks Richmond, VA (Shockoe Bottom) have worked hard to gain specific skills and knowledge in helping married couples. They will offer you and your spouse their professional guidance, based on their education, training, and experience. Not to mention, they will support you every step of the way.

Do you feel confident that your marriage could benefit if you and your spouse work with a marriage counselor? Are you still on the fence? Either way, consider reaching out to a marriage counselor. Most people who do seek and receive therapy only wish they had done so sooner! We can help you schedule a marriage counseling appointment or answer any questions you may have about our services.
