Couples Counseling

As a therapeutic professional, Megan Richardson got her degree in Couples and Family Counseling, and her driving passion is healthy families and thriving relationships.

She enjoys working with couples and providing proven techniques that can enhance relationships. At Thrive Therapy, we draw from empirically based approaches including The Gottman Method of Couples Therapy. This method is designed to help teach specific tools to deepen friendship and intimacy in your relationship.

“Despite what many therapists will tell you, you don’t have to RESOLVE your major marital conflicts for your marriage to THRIVE.” (Gottman & Silver, 2002).

To help you productively manage conflicts, you will be given methods to manage “resolvable problems” and dialogue about “gridlocked” or perpetual issues. This approach also helps you to appreciate your relationships strengths and gently navigate through it’s vulnerabilities.

Relationship Issues

Looking to maximize your relationship experience? Many couples engage in couples counseling to increase relationship satisfaction and learn practical techniques to feel successful in engaging in relationships in the future. Clients report feeling more confident about the way they respond to their partner and feel more assured about themselves.

Therapy After Infidelity

Recovering from a betrayal can feel daunting however it is possible for a relationship to remain intact and to grow from the experience. Thrive Therapy provides support to couples looking to process infidelity and make sense for what this means in the context of their own relationship.

Marriage Therapy

Married couples benefit from marriage therapy at Thrive Therapy by learning skills that help to increase the likelihood for a long lasting and satisfying relationship.
