Couples Therapy

It can be devastating when a spouse or partner has an affair. However, when both spouses or partners commit themselves to healing, they can survive infidelity.

Many marriages survive affairs. Many couples have endured this heartbreak and transition point in their marriages, and those dedicated to healing have become stronger with more profound levels of intimacy.

Our counselors at the Counseling Center of Cherry Creek can help you and your spouse recover from an affair. We understand that this may be one of the most challenging chapters in your life together, and it can come with uncertainty and ambivalence. However, we are here to help you heal as individuals and a couple, so you can rebuild trust, admit guilt, learn how to forgive, reconcile struggles, and reconnect on a deeper level.

Seeking professional guidance from a couples therapist is a very important and personal decision. Each couple has unique goals for their relationship, so it’s essential you find a counselor who can support you in your goals and offer perspective. A couples therapist can help you grapple with relationship milestones, life transitions, financial goals and struggles, communication, intimacy, and much more. 

Here are some questions you can ask yourself when finding the best couples therapist in Denver:

  • What is the therapist’s training, background, and experience?
  • What is the therapist’s reputation, and do others recommend them?
  • Does the therapist share your core values? For instance, is their practice influenced or informed by religious principles, feminism, humanism, etc.?
  • What is the therapist’s approach or strategy to counseling?
  • How effective are the therapist and their strategy?
  • How does the therapist define success/progress in therapy?
  • How much of the therapist’s practice is devoted to your concern or problem?

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 job...to 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 partner is not yet interested in counseling, that's ok! You can still come into our counseling office for guidance and support. At our therapy office, we offer Couples Therapy for One specifically for those interested in independent relationship counseling in Denver and Cherry Creek. 

Couples Therapy for One

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. 

If your partner is hesitant about participating in couples therapy, we recommend remaining calm and avoiding getting upset. Until your partner is 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 in Cherry Creek 

If you feel like it is time for something to change in your relationship, it only takes one person to get the process started. However, if you or your partner is still unsure about couple therapy, please don't hesitate to contact us at (720) 457-3342. 

Our helpful client ambassador can answer any of your questions, address your concerns, or schedule a no-obligation appointment for you. Each 60-minute session starts at $175, and you can see one of our three therapists: Margie Kaems, Chris Weaver, or Meagan Berry.  

We are proud to currently accept new clients from Denver and Cherry Creek in Colorado. Couples Therapy for One sessions are immediately available. 

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, current struggles, and 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.

To learn more about our couples therapy in Cherry Creek and what you can expect during your treatment, please contact our client ambassador, Margie, today at (720) 457-3342! 

The purpose of marriage varies for each person and couple. Everyone has different core values, ideals, and life goals, and so does every couple.

For many couples, marriage is a commitment to share their lives––a celebration of companionship and love. Marriage also legally binds you to another person and provides certain legal protections. Marriage has many different aspects, from values, culture, and intimacy to finances and egalitarian responsibilities. And again, each of these varies depending on the unique couple. 

Our counselors at the Counseling Center of Cherry Creek welcome clients of all ages and stages of marriage. Whether you are engaged, newlyweds, or have been married for several years, we are here to guide and support you in your relationship. Our ultimate goal is to help you discover or attain your goal as a couple, including strengthening the relationship, healing from past hurts, recommitting yourselves to one another, and much more.
