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

Marriage, matrimony, wedlock. Whichever way you put it, this union of two people is meant to bind them for life. Sometimes, though, this commitment doesn’t last and the couple ends up divorcing. Why?

What Does Marriage Counseling Do to Help?

There are many different techniques that can be used in marriage counseling to help you and your spouse move forward in your relationship. For example, here are a few main objectives of the marriage counselors at Thriveworks West Bloomfield in Oakland:

  1. Problem Identification: Your marriage counselor can help you and your spouse identify the specific problems in your relationship, such as lack of intimacy, jealousy, infidelity, or financial disagreements.
  2. Treatment objectives: Your therapist or psychologist will then work with you to come up with treatment objectives that will address those problems as well as overall goals for marriage counseling.
  3. Solution-focused intervention: Your marriage counselor will focus on building an individualized plan for helping you and improving your specific relationship.

Reasons to Pursue Marriage Counseling

Our marriage counselors can help you and your spouse work through an array of marital issues, as well as prepare for issues that might arise in the future. For example:

  • Communication: This is one of the most common reasons people seek marriage counseling. The reality is that sometimes it’s hard to communicate well with those we love when we are frustrated or unhappy. But a professional can help you do so.
  • Jealousy: Jealousy can turn a relationship upside down, as it is often accompanied by trust issues.
  • Anger: Anger can quickly lead to turmoil; fortunately, a therapist or psychologist can help individuals to better manage or express their anger.
  • Finances: Partners might disagree on their monthly budget. Marriage counseling can help them to work through the stress associated with money and reach a budget agreement.
  • Parenting: Many couples don’t agree on parenting styles and techniques, which can lead to disagreements and further conflict. A marriage counselor can help parents to discuss and decide on parenting strategies.

Again, the complete list of marital issues is exhaustive. The bottom line is that a marriage counselor at Thriveworks West Bloomfield in Oakland can help married couples to work through any and all problems in their relationship.
