Couples Counseling

Strengthening connection and support through couples and marriage counseling.

We help couples thrive through therapy.

Wanting to feel connected is at the heart of every relationship. But conflict, although a natural part of any relationship, can get in the way of that connection. When we develop true security in a relationship couples know how to understand the cues from their partner. So, their response sends a clear signal, “I am here with you,” and “you matter to me.” At ThrivePointe, we provide marriage counseling that helps many couples experience a kind of deep connection that they didn’t know could exist. Couples therapy is a place where new emotional experiences create powerful breakthroughs in relationships.

Couples therapy can help with:

Of course, no two couples start in the same spot! For all sessions, our marriage counselors will meet each couple where you are. 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

Starting marriage counseling can seem overwhelming for couples. So, we like to make sure you know what to expect. Couples therapy starts with an initial consultation. Then, we’ll have individual assessment sessions to match an evidence-based approach (basically, an approach that research has proven to work) to meet 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. Both 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.

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.

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 when marriage counseling is the most helpful:

“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, it can be hard to decide to reach out to begin. Taking the first step can help your relationship increase the positive interactions that help you see the best in your partner and yourself. It’s important to intervene in the negative cycle as early possible.
