What kind of therapist is best for couples?

At Thriveworks, Couples & marriage counseling is led by licensed professionals — often licensed marriage and family therapists (LMFTs) — who are experts in their field and best-equipped to help couples.

What is the Gottman Method of couples therapy?

The Gottman Method of couples therapy is a research-supported approach designed to enhance relationships by bolstering the bond between partners, resolving conflicts, and fostering shared meaning in their relationship through comprehensive assessments and tailored interventions that improve communication, trust, and the overall health of the partnership.

How to tell if I need couples therapy?

If you’re facing persistent relationship problems, communication breakdowns, or unresolved conflicts that are impacting your emotional well-being and happiness, Couples & marriage counseling may be beneficial for you.

Should every couple go to couples therapy?

While marriage and couple’s counseling is typically recommended for couples who are experiencing persistent or severe relationship issues, any relationship can benefit from attending these sessions.

Is couples & marriage counseling conducted in person or online?

Marriage and couples 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 couples & marriage counseling last?

On average, couples attend marriage and couples counseling for 12 weeks. However, couples & 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.

How much does couples & marriage counseling cost?

At Thriveworks, we take most major forms of insurance, which means that many of our clients only pay $0-$50 co-pay per session. However, there are also self-pay options that sit around $200 per session, depending on the service and location, for those who are out-of-network.

Need more help deciding?

It’s Sam and Alec’s three-year anniversary. They both look back fondly on their wedding day: It was full of excitement, happiness, and bliss. Today, though, excitement, happiness, and bliss are nowhere to be found. Instead, the day is a cloud of tension.

Sam and Alec have been arguing about everything under the sun. They fight about whose turn it is to go to the grocery store and make breakfast for the kids; they fight about how much money the other has been spending lately; they fight about who forgot to take the trash down to the curb. What they don’t realize is that they aren’t really fighting about groceries, breakfast, money, and garbage. They’re fighting because they’re both feeling overwhelmed. 

A marriage counselor or couples therapist could help Sam and Alec come to this realization. Further, a relationship counselor could help them manage their individual stressors and, in turn, improve their relationship. Marriage counselors and couples therapists help couples navigate tough conversations, make improvements, and better their relationships every day. The truth is that we can all use a little help, even those who appear to have the “perfect” relationship.

If you think your relationship could benefit from a professional relationship counselor’s help, contact Thriveworks Counseling in Toledo, OH. We can set you up with a marriage counselor or couples therapist upon your call. These professionals are skilled, experienced, and trained to help couples like you. And they’re ready to get started when you are.

Common Relationship Issues: Do These Sound Familiar?

Every relationship is different. The couples therapists and marriage counselors at Thriveworks Counseling in Toledo, OH understand this. They have worked with many different couples to address their specific relationship issues and needs. And they’re equipped to do so.

That said, there are common relationship issues that our counselors often discuss with their clients. Are any of these prevalent in your relationship?

  • Disagreements in parenting: Do you two disagree about how to parent your child/children? Do you have different preferences when it comes to parenting styles?
  • Intimacy issues: Are you and your partner struggling to connect, either mentally, emotionally, or physically? Is there a lack of overall intimacy in your relationship as of late?
  • Lack of trust: Has there been a form of betrayal in your relationship? Do you struggle to trust one another?
  • Financial struggles: Are you struggling financially, which is having a negative impact on your relationship? Do you fight about finances on the regular?
  • Mental health disorders: Are you or your partner working through a mental health disorder that is negatively affecting your relationship? For example, addiction, depression, or anxiety?

All of the above can stir up difficult emotions and cause heated arguments between you and your partner. Not to mention, these problems can have both short- and long-term effects on the health of your relationship if they aren’t dealt with properly.

The good news is that you can work through the above problems (and other problems that didn’t make our list) with a couples therapist or marriage counselor at Thriveworks Counseling in Toledo, OH. Our relationship professionals want to help you lead a happier, healthier relationship.
