Couples Therapy

What a great question!

People ask us this all of the time...and not surprisingly, it is not a very straightforward answer. It's a bit like asking your personal trainer, "How long will it take for me to lose 20 pounds?"

Couples Counseling

It totally depends on so many factors. Your motivation...if you are in couples counseling...your partner's motivation, what your goals are, if you do your *homework* outside of your meetings with your therapist, etc.

What helps your efficiency is getting clear on your goals -- this is a huge part of your therapist's help you get clear on your goals. And if there are two of you in the session, then helping both of you get clear on what you are working towards.

We can tell you, that it is our job to work ourselves out of a job. Really, it is!

That means, we want you to succeed! We want this to be an efficient process for all of our clients. If you want it to be more efficient, ask your therapist what you can do to help things move along faster...I bet she might have a suggestion.

If your spouse is not yet interested in counseling, that’s ok! You can still come into our counseling office by yourself! We offer Couples Therapy for One specifically for this situation.

Many of our clients have found relationship relief by coming in, meeting with a counselor, and starting the healing process on their own. There is no shame in attending Couples Therapy for One. Commonly, one party is interested in couples counseling while the other person is hesitant. Often, however, when one party begins attending couples counseling, the other party soon develops an interest. 

Do not get upset if your partner is hesitant about beginning couples therapy. Until they are ready to meet, you can still work with your therapist, build trust, and start sorting out some of the more significant issues in your relationship. 

Contact Our Client Ambassador

If you feel like it is time for something to change, it only takes one person to get the process started! 

Still not sure? Give us a call right now at (720) 457-3342, and our helpful client ambassador can answer any of your questions. We are currently accepting new clients, and we have couples therapy for one sessions that can begin immediately.

It depends on the couple and what they need. Every situation is different, which is why our clinical team takes a unique approach to every couple and client. Some couples require extensive individual work as part of their overall counseling, while others benefit from mainly working together with a joint therapist in the same room. 

There are times when working with each partner individually is useful, and other times when only working with the couple together is more productive. Our approach can even vary from week to week and from session to session.

The techniques we will use depend on your relationship, your current struggles, and your commitment to your treatment. The more often you visit our Cherry Creek counseling center, the faster and more effectively we can help you. 

When you have your initial meeting with your therapist, we will assess your particular situation and recommend what seems best for you and your partner. We will most likely recommend a combination of individual time as well as joint time with you and your partner.
