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?

If your relationship is in a tough spot, there is still hope that you can make it better. If your relationship is already in pretty good shape, we can help you make it great.” Whether you’re dating, engaged, married, or in a life-long romantic partnership, you’ll experience periods that aren’t exactly defined by warm feelings. You’ll have times when you feel inexplicably distant from one another, and others when you want distance from your significant other.

It’s inevitable really. You are two different people with varying personalities and perspectives who are trying to share the one life each of you has, so you won’t always feel like you’re on the same page. Even when everything seems great in your relationship, there are still opportunities for the both of you to take an active role in building your connection and deepening intimacy.

As a couple, the two of you have a limited perspective on what works and what doesn’t work, in terms of relationship building and conflict resolution go. At Thriveworks Westminster Couples Counseling, however, we worked with individuals and couples of all kinds — gay, straight, dating, married for 50 years — and, therefore, have a broad knowledge base that we can draw from when seeking therapy methods to fit your unique needs.

Who is Couples Counseling For?

The way things are between you and your significant other — good or bad — are not the way they will be forever. Your lives and the world around you are changing with each moment, and so one of the “secrets” to healthy relationships is being open with each other about those changes, and how they affect each of you individually and in relation to one another.

Thriveworks Westminster Couples Counseling, then, exists to help all couples navigate those conversations and transitions in a way that is rooted in mutual benefit and 100 percent transparency.

A misconception out there is that couples counseling (or mental health therapy of any kind) is meant for only “other people” who have “serious problems.” It’s easy for us to minimize our own experiences and eschew help, simply because we believe that if we enter into counseling, we are acknowledging that the relationship is dangerously out of our control. If we don’t get help, maybe our problems are small enough that we can handle them ourselves.

How well has that kind of thinking played out? More than likely, this proverbial sweeping of your issues under a rug means that you may put a particular issue out of your line of sight for a while, but it resurfaces again and again, and you’re no progress has been made.

Our caring, qualified couples counselors won’t stand for that. We’re here to help you make progress, not to keep going about business as usual when the paths to mutual respect and deepening intimacy are available. Perhaps you’re not moving forward because you don’t know how to move forward. Let us show you the way. It’s more possible than you think.

How Can a Couples Counselor Help Us?

If your relationship is in a tough spot, there is still hope that you can make it better. If your relationship is already in pretty good shape, we can help you make it great.

Helping a relationship flourish may look different from couple to couple, but a Thriveworks Westminster counselor can help you learn how to:

  • Identify and understand the source of your relationship problems
  • Listen, communicate, and respect each other’s feelings and points of view
  • Honestly express yourself in an open, trusting, growth-focused environment
  • Develop new, beneficial methods of communication while breaking away from harmful patterns
  • Address the psychological issues or addictions that are harming your relationship

Schedule a Couples Counseling Session with a Thriveworks Counselor

As part of a growing, nationwide community of mental health providers, Thriveworks aims to only deliver the most effective counseling services possible. For that reason, we only hire the best industry-leading professionals we can find. Many of our counselors have been featured in major publications for their work, publications such as CNN, The Journal of Mental Health, The Boston Globe, and Counseling Today, among others.

We believe so much in the counseling process for its ability to help individuals, couples, and families that we want to make sure that you’re able to get to work on your unique challenges as soon as possible. This is why when you call, you won’t reach a voicemail. This is why the person who answers the phone will help you determine if you can use your insurance plan. This is why we will schedule your first session for this week (if not tomorrow), instead of for weeks away.

Reach out by phone, or by going online to schedule your first session; the couples counselors at Thriveworks in Westminster are here to help you and your partner succeed.

Chris at Thrive Works saved my life. I started at the beginning of the pandemic, by phone, and I didn’t think therapy by phone would have the impact that it did. But I tried for my kids, my marriage, and myself. I can’t say enough good things about Chris. Thank you for everything, and for literally saving my life. I wouldn’t be alive without his counsel.

Jakob Rosenthal is the best therapist I've ever encountered! He gets to the bottom line quickly and kindly, and helps me to understand as well as helps me to have healthy coping mechanisms. I am a better person for having seen him.

Initially I saw Jacob for my intake appointment and felt he was really great. I was placed with Kate Kelly and overall she is fabulous. She has helped me live to my full potential. She has helped me sort out my PTSD with childhood and adult trauma, as well as being a great resource for addiction counseling. She was also extremely helpful to point me in the right direction on how to deal with (or escape from) toxic family members. She was also a really great help to me during grief and loss of a loved one. I feel so much better than I did before going to Thriveworks. I'm in a great place now and will be back in the future. I can't thank you enough.

Jacob has helped me much more than any therapist I've ever seen. His skill, insight, and kindness are truly outstanding. Jacob has helped me change my life so that my depression is no longer in charge. His approach is very direct - which may not be for everyone but was perfect for me - but he always acts and speaks with sincere compassion. Thank you, Jacob, you have helped heal me at a level I thought was impossible. Also, Jennifer has always been super wonderful and responsive withheduling and questions. She goes above and beyond to be helpful and kind. Thanks Jennifer! You're awesome.
