Within Couples Counseling the ability of the therapist to establish an environment of safety, respect and compassion for each member of the couple is VERY important to success. When both feels SAFE....the BENEFITS are numerous. I have been in your situation myself in the past and understand the need for assurance that your therapist will NOT take sides...but work for the success of the clients needs. The skill to develop this safe place is as important as any theory. I have been honored to consult with many couples over my 25 yrs.

One of the great separators between successful, thriving couples and couples whose relationships seem to just progress from one problem to another is this: their attitude toward those problems. Couples who are finding success in their relationships are often those that approach their inevitable issues with a solution-focused attitude or mindset. Focus on finding solutions, not problems. When times get tough, don’t give up on your relationship. We believe that there is nothing more precious than the relationships you cultivate in your life. You may be able to work things out on your own, but it is really worth the risk? Don’t take the chance; let Thriveworks Charlottesville help today.

Couples seeking counseling can have a myriad of issues they want to address: communication breakdowns, blended family or family of origin conflicts, disciplining children, finances and sexual problems to name a few. Some pre-marital couples are also looking to address pertinent issues before marriage.
