Starting Couples therapy

What is couples therapy?

Thriveworks Couples therapy helps couples work through their specific relationship issues. It 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 couples therapy include:

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

How does couples therapy work?

Couples therapy 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 couples therapy 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 couples therapy conducted in person or online?

Couples therapy at Thriveworks is conducted both in person and via Online therapy. We encourage you to choose the option that works best for you and your partner.

How long does couples therapy last?

On average, couples attend couples therapy for 12 weeks. However, couples therapy may last longer or shorter, dependent on the couples’ needs, the challenges they’d like to work through, and the pace of their progress.

Scheduling Couples Counseling at Thriveworks in St. Louis

If you and your partner are ready to begin couples therapy, know that you are not alone. These intimate relationships are never perfect. Many couples have areas where they can strengthen their relationships, and many couples are also reaching out for help as they do so.

Couples counseling often can help. Here are a few tangible ways that therapy may improve your relationship:

  • By helping you and your partner prioritize adjustments that need to be made. Certain behaviors need to be changed sooner rather than later. Some changes will make a bigger impact on the relationship. Skilled couples therapists can help partners analyze what areas they need to work on and which changes need to be prioritized.
  • By teaching conflict resolution skills. Simple disagreements can escalate, and partners can become stuck. When they have the conflict resolution skills to handle disagreements, partners can often resolve them and keep moving forward in their relationship.
