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 Cave Spring, VA 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 Cave Spring, VA work with their clients to create goals, decide on ideal timelines, and establish treatment plans.

Need more help deciding?

You remember your days, weeks, and months leading up to your wedding, right? Nothing could seem better than finally tying the knot, being whisked away to some tropical paradise, and then living “happily ever after”. After all, that’s how thing are supposed to be…aren’t they? But how many days, weeks, or months was it after you came back from the honeymoon when it finally started to sink in? When you started to notice and think, “You know? I’ve never seen a movie or read a fairytale that explained how things went after they said the phrase ‘…and they lived happily ever after’.” I like to believe that the writers intentionally leave this part of their stories. After all, they are people too, most likely with their own marriages and relationships; so it’s very likely that they haven’t quite figured out what happily ever after really looks like. But here’s the thing – Happily Ever After is a real thing, and it’s possible for you.

That’s why Thriveworks exists. At Thriveworks Marriage Counseling Roanoke, our team of expert counselors, therapists, and psychologists are passionate about helping you to navigate the often rocky road to a successful, loving marriage.

In our society today it’s very common to seek premarital counseling, but it is often less obvious that working closely with a marriage counselor, once the knot has been tied, can be a vital part of creating and sustaining the relationship that you and your spouse have envisioned.

Our Thriveworks Roanoke Marriage Counselors and Marriage Therapists believe wholeheartedly that those who participate in marriage therapy should be proud of their decision to improve their marriage relationship. All married couples experienced difficulties in their relationship, but those that are willing to pursue help from a licensed professional significantly improve their chances of learning, and even benefiting, from their marriage hardships.

Thriveworks Roanoke Counseling believes that getting the help you need should be a simple, straightforward process. That’s why we operate with no waiting lists, accept most major insurance plans, and often are able to schedule new clients within 24 hours of the time they reach out to us.

Your marriage is worth fighting for. Please don’t delay. Our marriage counselors and therapists are excited to help you accomplish your goals!

I had the pleasure of working with Chris in a professional capacity for 6 years, during which time he provided individual counseling for a number of children that I referred to him. Chris always demonstrated a sincere empathetic sensibility in his relationship with his clientele. He is keenly adept at providing the skills and guidance that allows others to pursue a self-actualizing understanding and awareness of themselves. He is a superb counselor.
