Online Marriage Counseling and Couples Therapy in Vermont—Counselors, Therapists, Psychologists
Sarah and Jack started dating late in college and used to spend every night talking on the phone until they would fall asleep. They went out on dates and did fun things like go to amusement parks, hike, sky dive, and travel. After college was over, Jack decided he didn’t want to wait any longer and proposed to Sarah as romantically as he could. They had the most picture-perfect, Pinterest-worthy relationship. That was until recently.
Sarah works in a fast-paced environment and often spends long nights at the office. Jack is a teacher and often feels exhausted by the time he comes home. Things around the house like dishes, laundry, and vacuuming are starting to fall behind and it is causing them both added stresses. In addition to their crazy busy schedules, the romance has been left behind. Now having been married for several years, their once exciting lifestyle is just a thing of the past. They want to rekindle what they had before and are having a hard time getting there. They decide to go to marriage counseling.
Relationships are hard and they take a lot of work. Although Sarah and Jack used to be on cloud nine, they are realizing that that is not always the case. Relationships have ups and downs, you bicker, you fight, and most importantly, you love hard. If you and your partner are experiencing something in your relationship that is hard to overcome, you might benefit from working with a licensed marriage counselor or couples therapist. At Thriveworks Vermont Counseling, our team of marriage counselors and couples therapists are dedicated to helping their clients become closer and work through their issues. Call our office to get started.
When is it Time to Work with a Couples Therapist or Marriage Counselor?
There are many different reasons why you and your partner might seek the help of a counselor or therapist. No matter if you have been together for less than a year or over 10 years, a psychologist can help you with the issues you are facing. We see couples for problems such as:
- Financial disagreements, stress, or strain
- Work/life balance
- Lack of intimacy or sexual problems
- Dishonesty and broken trust
- Stress management
- Anger management
- Lack of communication
- Parenting disagreements
- Unaligned goals for the future
- Mixed values
- Mental illnesses like depression or anxiety
If you do not see your specific challenge on this list, don’t worry. These are just a few of the areas in which a licensed psychologist can help you and your significant other. No matter what has happened in your past or what is going on in your present, we can help you focus on making changes for a brighter future.
Online Marriage Counseling and Couples Therapy: What Do They Look Like?
If you and your partner have never gone to therapy before, you may be wondering what you can expect. At Thriveworks Vermont, your therapist or counselor will identify the areas of concern by listening to you both as individuals first in order to craft a unique plan of action to fit your relationship, personalities, and goals. Our sessions are always nonjudgmental and safe spaces to heal. In addition, our counselors will equip you with tools you need to achieve things like:
- Effective communication
- Mutual respect and understanding
- How to identify stressors before they become an issue
- Deepen your bond and get back to a healthier way of being
- Increase relationship satisfaction
A couples therapist or marriage counselor will not take sides. They are neutral in you and your partner’s situation.
Online counseling has two different methods, which are:
- Phone counseling: at your appointment time, your counselor will call you and all you have to do is answer
- Video counseling: prior to your appointment time, you will receive a link to a video chat. When it’s time, all you have to do is click the link and get started.
If you are unsure of which method would be best for you and your partner, you can switch between the two to find what is most comfortable. Some of the benefits of online counseling include affordability, effectiveness, comfortability, ease, and reliability.
