REACH THEIR FULLEST POTENTIAL
Through couples and marriage counseling
We help couples thrive.
Therapy helped us become aware of the negative communication cycles we get stuck in. For the first time, we were able to slow down and respond to each other in helpful ways.
Couples therapy can help with:
As in all of our sessions, no two couples start in the same spot. We will take the time to understand your needs and hopes for your relationship so we can work together towards your goals.
Here are some of the issues we help with in couples counseling:
- Differing communication styles
- Parenting conflicts
- Emotional distancing, walling off
- Feeling attacked and misunderstood by your partner
- High conflict, blaming, escalating arguments
- Feeling shut out or abandoned by your partner
- Premarital counseling
- Enhance your marriage and strengthen connection
- Sexual problems
- Rebuilding trust
- Affair/betrayal recovery
The ThrivePointe Approach to Couples Therapy
Counseling for couples starts with an initial consultation, followed by individual assessment sessions to match an evidence-based approach (basically, an approach that research has proven to work) that meets your specific needs.
We have couples therapists trained in the most effective and current evidence based approaches for relationships including Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy and Gottman Couples Therapy. These models are rooted in Attachment Theory and offer a compassionate and nonjudgmental view of relationship distress that can help bridge the divide between you rather than drive you further apart. Through this journey, couples are able to gain insight into their needs and responses, stop the escalation of conflict or distancing, and build the kind of trust required to repair emotional wounds.
The Risk of Waiting Too Long…
It’s common for couples to delay counseling until they are at a breaking point, but that’s not the path we recommend. The Gottman Institute has researched the matter.
“Timing is an essential element in whether marriage counseling works. Unfortunately, most couples wait much too long to reach out for help repairing their marriage. According to relationship and marriage expert Dr. John Gottman, couples wait an average of six years of being unhappy before getting help.”
Whether it’s a busy schedule, finances, or anxiety about the process, taking the first step and reaching out can help your relationship increase the positive interactions that help you see the best in your partner and yourself. It’s important to intervene the negative cycle as early possible.
