What is your go-to approach for couples/marriage counseling?

My go-to approach for helping people in couples/marriage counseling is to build rapport, hear each person's perspective. Then educate, demonstrate, and have couples practice the communication, conflict resolution, and active listening tools in session. I find the best benefit is when couples commit to practicing tools learned in sessions at home.

What tools do you teach in couples/marriage counseling?

I teach the following tools in/couples marriage counseling: active listening, which ensures the person is not letting their perspective skew/change the message from their partner; using “I” statements instead of “you” statements since “you” statements put the other person on the defensive; the 4 Horsemen; and antidote concept, which helps couples identify toxic communication and change it.

How do you know when a client is making meaningful progress in couples/marriage counseling?

I know clients are making meaningful progress in couples/marriage counseling when they are practicing tools learned in sessions.

What can clients do in their personal time to supplement couples/marriage counseling?

Clients can supplement their time in couples/marriage counseling with podcasts, marriage seminars, and books, to which I can refer material.

What should someone do to prepare for starting couples/marriage counseling?

To prepare for your first couples/marriage counseling session, you can come with an open mind.

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.

Need more help deciding?

Is your relationship struggling with intimacy? Are you and your significant other having a difficult time staying faithful or committed to each other? Do you bicker about mundane things on a regular basis? If so, we recommend that you consider working with a couples therapist. Couples therapy is a form of psychotherapy that guides and support couples through their specific relationship issues. The end goal is to help strengthen the relationship, so long as it supports the health and wellbeing of each partner.

We can improve our relationships with others by leaps

and bounds if we become encouragers instead of critics.”

–Joyce Meyer
