Samantha H. says, "Ana made me feel so safe and loved during my secessions with her. The Trauma therapy helped with building my long lost self confidence from when I was 12 years old as a result of being bullied in middle and high school. Ana has helped me tremendously in so many ways. Before I met Ana I was constantly in flight or fight mode trying to constantly please people to like me by doing things I thought would make them love me, but Ana has helped me see that I don't have to do anything different but be myself and the people who love me will love me for who I am. She helped me rescue my inner child from all the Shame and guilt I held inside me. I love how Ana would always be there for me no matter what was going on in my life. I truly appreciate her and everything she did to help me overcome my Trauma. She is definitely a blessing." Read more

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 Valley Stream marriage counselors

Recent success stories from people in the Valley Stream area.
Gil G.
Working with Ana was and is a great experience. I was a bit worried and skeptic about therapy at first but Ana made me feel comfortable and heard. I especially liked the approach of looking at therapy as a way to learn and exercise methods of dealing with life and acquiring tools to be able to do it on my own. I very much recommend working with Ana she is a wonderful person and she helped me a lot.

The word wisdom comes to mind. You can sense that connection through relatability. The encouragement and direct vibe that she is giving while absorbing your challenges while you unload is really a true way to live. She lives what she believes. It’s a genuine thread in her character that you don’t see often. She will keep you focused with practical advice for how to keep your life moving in a flow that lines up with successes.

My experience with Miss Be Life Coaching Services stretched me tremendously. I have experienced two separate programs under Miss Be dynamic leadership and facilitation “100 Days to A Whole You” and “Breaking The Cycle.” Both workshops have led me to grow and enhance my spiritual alignment, self-development, focus on growth, mindset, and execution. Life coach support from Miss Be and members of my cohort helped me to achieve life ultimate goals in what I thought would be a 2-year goal later turned into 6 months results. I created cycles and learned skills to receiving financial breakthroughs, building healthy relationships (family/friends/intimate), acceleration within my career, and most importantly crazy faith in my walk with Christ. Miss Be is professional, trustworthy, committed, and holds you accountable NO MATTER the outcome. I definitely advise anyone who is looking for growth and fulfillment in their life to book Miss Be!
