The coach/counselor will likely ask you about your current and past physical and emotional health to gain a deeper understanding of your situation. Your coach/counselor may discuss whether you might benefit from other treatment as well, such as medications. The first session is also an opportunity for you to interview your coach/counselor to see if he or she will be a good match for you.

Ramona W. says, "We started working with MPS over three years ago right before getting married. We know without a doubt that MPS has been instrumental in helping us have a very happy, healthy, and thriving marriage. Each time we attend a session we leave feeling equipped to navigate the love work in our marriage because of the tools we are given. We received homework to complete for the next session, which encourages and enables us to grow as a couple. Three years later we still work with MPS and will continue because of the inherent value that is added to our lives." Read more

James T. says, "I've spent quite a while now trying to figure out how to write a review which adequately encompasses how strongly I feel about Troy as a person and the work he does - it's hard to articulate! I have been seeing Troy now for going on 5 years and I can honestly say that he has saved my life. He has helped me navigate the most difficult challenges in my life and taught me how to have an in depth, loving and meaningful relationship with myself. Most importantly I have learned how to manage and not identify so strongly with my emotions which has developed into a profound sense of personal sanctuary, serenity, and happiness. Troy has a unique method of providing therapy and advice which is different from other therapists I have seen in the past. He sits and listens. He takes notes. He tries to empathize and understand exactly what your story is. Troy is not the type of therapist where you walk into his office and walk out an hour later with enlightenment that he gained from a text book in grad school and dropped on you to solve your particular issue. That wouldn't work anyway, for anyone, even if he did. Its a slow process which requires a lot of effort, patience, and working through difficult emotions. But if you're seeking therapy or coaching seriously to change and improve your life that's exactly the type of situation you should be looking for. There was a time relatively early on when I was seeing Troy where some painful and traumatic events came up and were being discussed. As I explained my feelings and the situation in general, Troy took notes and listened like he does, except this time he was so moved that he got emotional. That's happened several times during our sessions. Troy is too humble to admit it but he is an extremely talented vocalist, a successful businessman and has a host of other talents. He's doing this because he genuinely cares about helping people, and he is extremely passionate about it. That's extremely rare to find in any capacity in my experience. Troy I wish you all the success in the world. I will continue to see you as my therapist as long as you're seeing clients. Thank you for everything." 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?

My experiences with MPS has been great! I have learned life-long coping skills that are beneficial for me personally and professionally. The chronic stress that I once suffered has also improved because of Stephen. Stephen is an awesome therapist and Joanna is extremely communicative and professional. She always ensures that my appointments are set and convenient. I recommend MPS to anyone that suffers from anxiety and stress.

I am the person I am today because of the work that I’ve done with Troy Gremillion. I went to him over eight years ago with a vague sense of unhappiness in my primary relationships and have gained greater insight and self-assurance than I ever imagined possible. I went to other therapists before, and they helped me to successfully manage different situations I was facing at the time. With Troy, however, I forged a truly healing working-relationship that provided the foundation I needed to transform myself into a more grounded, confident self, able to face (imperfectly) whatever inevitable challenges arise. It is because of Troy’s skillfulness, gentleness, consistency, and not to mention hilariousness, that I have been able to do that. He has done the work himself, and it shows. Inspired by the help I received from Troy, I made a career change and am now a therapist for others. I try to pay forward what I have been given by providing the same steadiness, understanding, gentle challenges, and good humor that he has and continues to provide for me. I absolutely cannot recommend him enough.

Elizabeth T. Successful Realtor ​ After complaining to a colleague about the countless hours I had spent with therapists, counselors, psychologists, group meetings and self-help books over the last two years of my life I was referred to a Life Coach named Rich Prim. I could at this point in my life recognize major issues that were causing me problems, however, I struggled to change them. I knew I was not happy, yet I truly did not know how to be happy. I had lots of people telling me what to do, however, when I even tried to take their advice I was not able to do any of it successfully. I did not believe they understood what my personal struggle and situation was like. How could they possibly understand me, if I did not understand myself and why I was the way I was? I recognized I could change my actions every day and become a robot, but it would never last and my feelings inside did not match those actions. I had read enough to identify my problems but none of the therapists, counselors, psychologists, group meetings or self-help books changed how I felt about my situation or offered any solutions that I would even consider a possibility in my life. That is until I met with Rich Prim. Rich had an approach that was far different than any therapists, counselors or psychologists I had ever met with. In 4 visits with Rich I had come farther in my personal journey, and was able to understand more about myself than I had in all the years with the traditional approaches I used to try to learn how to change my life. I was used to being told what to do -and for me that does not work and would never last even when I really tried. I was able to figure out that even if I truly wanted to change my life for the better, which I did, I cannot just do what I am told. I have to understand, in my own mind, why I should make a change and I have to believe this is right for me. Instead of just telling me what to do, Rich was able to help me uncover, understand and identify why and how my brain works, and direct me to thoughts, habits, beliefs I had no idea were in the way of getting me to my end result…changing. I discovered that I am in essence a lazy human and I created habits and beliefs early on in my life that are so ingrained in me that changing them would be as difficult as convincing my brain that grass is purple, not actually green. Many people might say that it is the “Life Coach” approach that has helped me. I would strongly argue that it was a combination of Life Coach and Rich Prim. It took someone willing to put in the extra effort and actually listen beyond the words I was saying, this person for me was Rich Prim. He did not offer me the answers, but even better, he showed me how to find them for myself, which naturally brought about change in my life. When my perspective changed my actions just naturally changed. I highly recommend Rich Prim to anyone looking for direction or change in their life, even if they don’t know what direction that is...especially if they do not know what direction that is.
