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 Troy, MI 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 Troy, MI work with their clients to create goals, decide on ideal timelines, and establish treatment plans.

Rebecca and Alex have been married over a year now and are starting to experience some friction in their relationship. Most of the time they’re both happy and enjoy spending time together, but now there are little things starting to cause conflict. Rebecca can’t stand when Alex doesn’t help put the dishes away. Alex just wants some alone time after work. What were once small bumps in the road at the beginning of their marriage have now turned into full-blown fights. They both want to improve their poor communication skills so they can get back to a happier mental state.

Experts on romance say for a happy marriage, there has to be more than a passionate love. For a lasting union, they insist, there must be a genuine liking for each other. Which, in my book, is a good definition for friendship. –Marilyn Monroe

Whether you have been married for two weeks or twenty years, you and your spouse will face challenges in your relationship that will make you work together to come out of them together. Unfortunately, around 50% of marriages end in divorce because couples fail to address, manage, and resolve their conflicts. This doesn’t have to be your fate! If you and your spouse are struggling to overcome your own challenges, you can work with a marriage counselor who has the skills and knowledge needed to help you through the dark times. At Thriveworks Troy Counseling in Oakland, we have marriage counselors who have the education and experience to guide you. If you are ready to put the next foot forward and start the journey to a healthier marriage, call (248) 764-4182 today.

Common Relationship Issues

All relationships will experience highs and lows over the years. Regardless of how much love you have for each other, you will not always see eye to eye. In addition, stress from work, raising children, and arguments with family can all put an even bigger strain on your relationship. Some of the common relationship issues married couples seek counseling for include:

  • Job loss or financial strain
  • Having different opinions on raising children
  • Struggling with communication with extended family
  • Experiencing loneliness or resentment
  • Going through major life changes
  • Struggling with anger or communication problems
  • Different political or religious views
  • Infidelity from one or both spouses
  • Trouble fulfilling individual goals
  • Coping with addiction or substance abuse

Have you ever run into any of these problems? Have you been searching for Troy therapy to get help with your marriage? If so, a marriage counselor at Thriveworks Troy in Oakland can help you address, work through, and find peace with any of your marital challenges. No problem is too big or too small to get help with. Reach out when you are ready.

Marriage Counseling: What You Can Expect  

Depending on what you and your spouse’s individual needs are will determine how marriage counseling works for you. Your therapist will first assess your marriage, taking into consideration both of your specific needs and goals. Based on the information they gather about your relationship, they will create the best possible treatment plan that is unique to you both.

We understand that opening up with your counselor can be hard. They will be able to help guide you through conversation and even help you make tough decisions. In some cases, despite their best efforts, some couples come to the conclusion that their marriage isn’t going to work. Your therapist can help facilitate healthy communication and give you the support you need to make these tough decisions. With the right support, you can minimize stress and look forward to your new future.

While many of us don’t want to admit it, marriage can be hard. It’s better to take the necessary steps to try and resolve conflicts when they come up rather than pretend like everything is okay. If you and your spouse are struggling with an issue that you can’t seem to overcome, no matter how big or small, reach out to a marriage counselor at Thriveworks Troy Counseling. We have psychologists who are ready to help you work through anything that may stand in between you and your happiness.

I've known Andrea for a number of years. Working with children is her passion. She just loves kids and will work diligently to achieve any child and parental goals. A firm believer that early detection/ treatment of childhood problems is the key for the development into a healthy adult. She works closely with parents and family members, as they play a crucial role in the child's successes. Always interested in expanding her knowledge base and keeps informed of new information related to her specialities. An extremely good listener and communicator that takes an active role in working with children and their family. I would highly recommend Andrea to anyone that is seeking an experienced counselor for their child.
