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.
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.
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.
