Relationship Counseling in San Jose, CA—Marriage and Family Therapists

Relationships are a fundamental part of our lives, but they can come with challenges. Differences in personal tastes, opinions, values, and upbringing can sometimes lead to tension. Thriveworks Counseling in San Jose, CA, offers professional support to help navigate these challenges.

Contact us today at (669) 238-4947 to start nurturing your relationship.

Why People Seek Relationship Counseling

Couples therapy or counseling can address a wide range of issues. You don’t have to be estranged from your partner to benefit from professional help. Sometimes, a neutral third party can provide valuable insights and help rejuvenate your relationship.

Common reasons for seeking couples therapy include:

  • Coping with a shared loss
  • Trust issues
  • Intimacy concerns
  • Infidelity
  • Household responsibilities
  • Communication difficulties
  • Divorce or separation
  • Major life transitions
  • Differing parenting styles
  • Financial hardships
  • Opposing political views
  • Failure to compromise

Every relationship is unique, and your concerns may differ from those listed above. A trained couples therapist will listen closely to your specific obstacles, needs, and goals.

How Couples Therapy and Marriage Counseling Works

Whether you’re new to therapy or have previous experience, a licensed marriage and family therapist at Thriveworks Counseling can guide you through the process. Therapy can improve your relationship, much like visiting a doctor can improve your physical health.

Therapy sessions may include:

  • Narrative therapy: Encourages couples to write down or voice their view of events, revealing different perspectives and helping to find new ways forward.
  • Solution-focused therapy: Aims to address specific issues in the relationship by creating solutions with the guidance of a therapist.
  • Emotionally-focused therapy: Focuses on recurring reactions to disagreements and helps couples form healthy habits for secure attachments.
  • Positive psychology: Encourages couples to identify and focus on positive moments and interactions, leading to more positive perceptions of the relationship.

Therapy can also provide actionable strategies for managing conflicts, dealing with sudden tragedies, financial issues, and challenging in-laws.
