Couples Therapy in Woodbridge, VA—Expert Relationship Help

Jealousy. Trust issues. Infidelity. A breach of trust. Financial struggles. Parenting disagreements. Differing opinions, views. Opposing visions for the future.

These are but a few of many relationship issues you might encounter with your significant other. Unfortunately, no relationship is void of challenges. The good news, though, is that these challenges are what often bring people closer together. Working through the problems that come your way can help you further build and strength that bond. That said, working through these problems isn’t always a piece of cake. In fact, working through relationship issues can be really difficult. In these instances, one might consider working with a couples therapist: a mental health professional who specializes in helping couples build happier, healthier relationships.

“A strong relationship requires choosing to love each other, even in those moments when you struggle to like each other.”

Is a relationship issue putting stress on you, your partner, and even your home life? Don’t let it take its toll on your happiness; consider Thriveworks Woodbridge couples therapy to resolve what’s bothering you and move forward in a happier, healthier relationship. The sooner you and your partner begin couples therapy, the sooner you can work through the problems at hand and build a stronger foundation for you and your partner to lean on.

Relationship Ups and Downs: Do We Need Couples Therapy?

It’s not uncommon for couples to experience ups and downs throughout their relationship. You won’t always be on the same side of the fence over every element of life, and most of the time you’ll be able to resolve an argument or address an issue on your own, without support.

It’s for this reason that many people continue weathering the storm, even when their relationship starts to have more downs than ups. But why put off trying Woodbridge couples counseling? We can help you get back on track and even better prepare for future storms that might come your way.

If you’re experiencing an issue you can’t seem to overcome or you’re stuck in “down” mode, couples therapy can help facilitate resolution before your otherwise great relationship continues to go downhill.

Common Problems, Uncommon Approach

Many couples face similar issues at different times in their relationships; while the themes may be the same, we also recognize that every couple’s situation is unique. Are you facing any of these common issues?

  • Communication problems
  • Different thoughts on raising the kids
  • Disagreeing about money
  • Struggling with intimacy issues
  • Concerns about career matters
  • Disagreements in parenting
  • Infidelity or general trust issues
  • Jealousy

Or is something else making you feel stuck? No matter what it is, an experienced Thriveworks Woodbridge couples counselor can help, providing you with advice and a place to discuss whatever conflict you’re facing.

Answers to my prayers

Johanna Lee has been my therapist for the past 7 months and I am extremely pleased with her! She is very professional and goes above and beyond to meet my needs. Thriveworks makes the whole process easy because I can text them to solve any issues I’m having.

Discerning & Thoughtful

I mentored Sharon in her master’s and doctoral studies where I found her to be thoughtful and discerning. She always generated a sincere sense of passion as her desire was not just to obtain degrees but to build the skills and knowledge base to support people within her community. Transparent in all her interactions with me and fellow students, she was unapologetically true to Biblical standards as the foundation of her interactions with others. I am confident that she will continue to be a thoughtful and wise counselor to all who seek her guidance and compassion.

People Person

Sharon is the epitome of integrity. She operates in humility and truth. She embodies what I call the three Cs: Caring, Considerate, and Compassionate. She sees you, hears you, and listens attentively and intuitively to your concerns. Her advice is sound and non-judgmental. Sharon's quiet, calm, and peaceful spirit puts you at ease, and makes you feel comfortable. I often seek her advice when life becomes difficult. I highly recommend Sharon for those that are broken, and in need of much healing and inner peace.
