I believe in therapy and the how it helps individuals, couples, and families learn communication and acceptance so they feel connected. This is what I offer clients when they enter into a counseling relationship with me. I offer them a safe environment where its okay to communicate thoughts and feelings.

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?

Reviews for Charlotte marriage counselors

Recent success stories from people in the Charlotte area.
Hugo S.
Prompt response and professional service. I was looking for professional help to work on some personal issues and I found Karen. She has been very helpful and has helped me to set some goals for personal improvement. One of the things I like about Karen is her practical counseling approach, no none sense or just an ear to hear me with no practical or achievable plan. I think she is very understanding and empathetic. After every session I can understand the reasons behind certain behavior patterns which really help me to make some improvements in my personal and social life, and I also have some homework (which I think is important) that reminds me that improvement does not end once the counseling session ends but constant practice is important. In my opinion Karen is a great professional to reach out to if you need someone understanding who really enjoys helping others. I'm not someone who writes reviews about anything or everything but I think this is a review well deserved.

Revive Counseling has really made a difference in my life! I was going through a tough and confusing time in my life and I was really stuck. I did not fully realize how stuck until Kim Hall helped me to realize the depth of it. She was in partial as she could be with the one side of the experience with my ex wife and gave me some observations about myself. After giving me some exercises to help do some self reflection, I realized I was really stuck. Some of the exercises I did not do and that set me back at times, but when I did them, they help with giving me clarity. I finally had a break through. I am not fully recovered ,but I am on my way. Kim was easy to talk to and share even though she was a stranger recommended by a church member. She was flexible with my schedule. You should not put a price on mental health, but the fee was very affordable and fit in my budget well to help me heal but not break the bank. I thank the Lord God for putting me in the path of Kim and Revive Counseling because God gave us free will, but when we listen and submit to His will, it makes life easier especially when he sends you guidance through people.

I am recommending Life Path Holistic Counseling and Consulting for counseling and mental health therapy. Jenny Renville has helped me during troubled times. Mrs. Renville has helped me to cope with my personal and professional problems in a holistic way. Coping without the aid of psychotropic medication has enabled me to use other means of dealing with my issues in a holistic way. I am learning how to deal with stress without suppressing my feelings through other means or sources. Seek Mrs. Renville for therapy, she is the best!
