Marriage Counseling

Relationship Difficulties – When To Seek Help?
If you have reached a point in your relationship at which a conflict is starting to seriously affect your happiness and health, communication between you and your partner has become negative and you have repeatedly failed to resolve your ongoing differences, it might be beneficial to seek professional help in the form of couples or marriage counseling.

Every couple is different. No guidebook or specialist will be able to tell when exactly is the right time for you and your other half to work through your problems under professional guidance. Some couples choose to attend counseling because of a serious development in their relationship – like betrayal, financial disputes or irreconcilability of principal life goals and values (e.g. a wish to have offspring). It might also be that something less dramatic has started to undermine your relationship, for example indifference and boredom or persistent trivial arguments. Regardless of the point of contention, many couples will find that overcoming their problems is easier under the guidance of a counselor who has no connection and no preconceived ideas about their relationship.

Relationship Counseling – What To Expect?
Many people will instinctively prefer to deal with their relationship problems at home and therefore postpone the decision to access marriage or couples therapy. There is no doubt that going to a counseling session with one’s partner can be quite a daunting experience. Some people will be anxious about discussing their inner-most feelings and uncertainties in front of a person they are conflicted with – what if they disagree or humiliate us? Some might worry about saying the truth – what if it hurts the other person and makes things worse? Experienced counselors do notice, however, that once these initial concerns are gone, couples counseling offers much greater benefits than individual therapy for those who wish to work on their relationship.

Broadly speaking, couples and marriage counseling is just another form of psychotherapy, specifically designed for both parties to attend. A counselor plays a role of an objective intermediary – he or she is not supposed to take sides or suggest ready solutions. A counselor is there to facilitate communication, help the couple understand the origins of their conflict and work towards a resolution. Duration of such therapy varies, but many spouses and partners find that after 2 or 3 months a significant improvement has been achieved.

This saved my life

★★★★★
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 amazing

★★★★★
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.

Fantastic

★★★★★
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.

Outstanding Therapist

★★★★★
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.

Peace and Comfort

★★★★★
The more I go to Counseling, the more I recognize the peace and comfort available there. The waiting area (I have always been seen punctually) has warm, comfortable decor and a great offering of beverages. The choice of beverages is just one expression of the warmth and hospitality they offer. I actually look forward to going there! The office is conveniently located and easy to find. I've always enjoyed front row parking, thanks to the abundance of designated visitor's parking. The office is on the first floor just off the lobby. Several counselors have greeted me warmly, even when they know I'm not there to see them. I highly recommend Thriveworks. It's obvious that they are in the counseling profession for the right reasons.
