Are you feeling frustrated and confused by your closest relationships? Do you find yourself stuck in familiar negative patterns, in your relationships or your own habits? While our greatest heartaches often come to us in the form of relationships, they can also be the doorway to providing healing and reparative experiences. Sometimes we need another calm and caring presence to help us express our emotions, to gain clarity where we have confusion, and fumble our way forward out of the stuck places. Therapy can provide a healing relationship, a place to receive attentive and nonjudgemental listening, and hope for a brighter tomorrow. Cassidy ha

Most of my clients come to me because they feel stuck in life, relationships or direction and want to change. Many people believe that change is too difficult, too painful, or simply not possible. In other words, stuck! My role as a counselor is to clarify the issues that create the muck that hold my clients back from healing, growth, and thriving. I help them discover that their lives can get better and change is possible. I believe that the road to healing involves pursing change. I’ve always been drawn to helping professions. Through Mental Health Counseling I create a safe and confidential environment where together we can explore how an...

As someone who has walked through my own counseling experience, I know how vital it is that the counseling process feels safe. I am so honored that individuals, couples, and families would allow me to enter into the counseling process with them. I work with children, adolescents, and adults through a client-centered and integrative approach. I have over 10 years of experience working with a wide range of ages in various roles. I have spent my last few years as a school-based therapist, and I believe that working collaboratively with other providers, teachers, school counselors, etc. is very integral in the counseling process. I have extens...

Your marriage counseling questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thervo.

How much does marriage counseling cost?

Marriage counseling costs $120 to $250 per session for in-person therapy or $90 to $230 per session for virtual counseling. Prices depend on the length of the session, the therapist's experience, the counseling method, and your location. Prices are highest in major metropolitan areas like New York, Boston, Seattle, and San Francisco.

Is marriage counseling covered by insurance?

Marriage counseling is typically not covered by insurance unless it's prescribed by a medical doctor due to a billable diagnosis, such as depression or bipolar disorder. Contact your insurance provider to confirm your coverage details.

What is marriage counseling, and what should I expect in a session?

Marriage counseling, also called couples therapy, is a solution-focused type of therapy that helps couples overcome struggles, resolve conflicts, and improve their relationship.

In your first session, you and your partner will discuss your relationship issues and goals with the therapist. The therapist will often ask questions to clarify your problems and concerns. The therapist then develops a goal-oriented plan for the upcoming sessions.

The therapist may use one or several methods and techniques to help you and your partner work towards resolution, and may give you homework to do alone or together in between sessions.

Does marriage counseling work, and is it worth it?

Marriage counseling works best when both partners actively participate and work together on the relationship during and in between sessions. Research shows current marriage counseling techniques like the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) have a 70% to 75%+ success rate.

Marriage counseling is often worth the cost even for happy couples. Benefits of marriage counseling include:

  • Improved communication
  • More compassion and acceptance between partners
  • A better understanding of your needs and how to express them
  • A deeper connection with your partner
  • Improved intimacy

How long does marriage counseling last?

Marriage counseling lasts 3 to 6 months, depending on your needs and the issues you're hoping to resolve. A couple seeking therapy to resolve one small issue may benefit from fewer sessions, while a couple considering divorce may need 6+ months.

Weekly therapy sessions typically last 45 to 90 minutes. Most counselors recommend committing to one session per week for at least three months, as becoming comfortable with the therapy process and opening up to the therapist and each other takes time.

How can I choose the best marriage counselor near me?

Look for a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), as most counselors without this specialty have only introductory training in couples therapy. Follow these tips to find the best marriage counselor near you:

  • Discuss your preferences and goals with your partner.
  • Explore the different relationship therapy methods and look for a counselor certified in your preferred method. Two popular, science-backed methods are the Gottman Method and Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT).
  • Ask for recommendations from your medical provider.
  • Read counselors' reviews on Thervo and Google.
  • Confirm the counselor accepts your insurance or offers a sliding-scale rate.
  • Ask about telemedicine and virtual visit options.
  • Schedule an initial consultation to make sure you're happy with the counselor's communication style and empathy.

What questions should I ask a marriage counselor?

Ask these questions to help you choose a marriage counselor who will help you and your partner achieve the best results:

  • What training and certifications do you have?
  • Do you primarily work with couples?
  • What therapy modalities and techniques do you use?
  • How long are your sessions?
  • How many sessions do you think we need?
  • What is a typical session like?
  • How do you measure progress?
  • Do you offer discounted packages, payment plans, or sliding scale rates?
  • What should we do to prepare for the first session?
  • Do you assign reading or homework between sessions?

There are very few people in life of whom you can genuinely say they deeply affected and changed my life for the better. For me, Greg is one of those very few! I met Greg in 2004 at a somewhat tired networking event/format and little did I know that taking a chance at that time for me on hiring him to be a career coach would be such a worthwhile and transformative experience. He has been an incredible coach in all the ways one could possibly hope- he never gave up for me and after he and I met for over 8 dedicated months, looking over business plan and idea after business plan (we discarded 22 of them during that time), he finally said one word to me (franchising) to help me try some other avenues to find the perfect business for me to get my entrepreneurial life started once and for all. Within 2 months I found 4 excellent possibilities and 3 months later I had signed a contract with a franchisor, gave my notice and haven't looked back since. Greg's belief and dedication in his client's aspirations is incredible- so much so, I hired him for my husband, spoke about him in Costco Magazine when they did an article on our success, and have recommended him to anyone who is serious about doing the inner work it takes to finding and committing to an excellent and meaningful career path. Again, I can count on both hands the amount of people in my life that have helped me as much as Greg has to go out and make my aspirations a reality, and stick by me as I take those steps. If you want a better career for yourself (and you're willing to do the work you need to do to get there) Greg is the coach for you.
GREAT FUTURE NOW Coaching
Eric A.
June is amazing, so far in just one session she was able to explain how my mind was working and allow me the tools right now to think slower and different, so now at the moment I am not crying uncontrollably and my stomach is not in knots from stress. Amagine what she can do in multiple sessions.
