Couples & Marriage Therapy
Working through conflicts, disputes, trauma, or betrayals with your partner can be difficult on your own—and without the right tools and a safe place to practice using them, it can be impossible. Our therapists specialize in working with couples to create effective courses of action that achieve the best results.
The first thing we’ll do when you reach out to Therapy Utah is schedule an intake session and perform an assessment. Then we’ll match you and your partner with an appropriate therapist for your specific concerns.
Affairs and infidelity
Betrayals and deceptions
Addiction, Trauma, & Betrayal Counseling
Betrayal Trauma Therapy
Betrayal trauma is a widely misunderstood type of trauma, but at Therapy Utah, we understand it. We provide you a safe, supportive space to heal, to learn, and to remember who you are.
Sex Addiction Treatment
Dealing with sexual addiction can be a difficult and shameful process, but help is available. We don’t weaponize your shame in an attempt to modify your behavior—instead, we work with you to develop the tools to make real, lasting change. We want you to live the life you’ve always wanted.
Program Options & Rates
You will also need to complete a 50–60 minute intake session before we can match you with a therapist whose methods, experience, and communication style are a strong fit for you and your situation. The cost for this intake and initial assessment is $150.

Frequently Asked Questions About Couples & Marriage Therapy
When Is the Right Time to Consider Couples or Marriage Therapy?
Therapy can help any couple improve their communication, clarify issues causing friction, or work to heal from trauma. In many cases, couples seek our help when they encounter:
- Broken trust
- Frequent arguments
- Poor communication
- Poor boundaries
- Financial conflicts
- Addictive behaviors
- Separation issues
Therapy can also help couples identify issues when they experience tension or friction without being able to pinpoint the cause. If you and your partner are dealing with a challenge of any kind that you feel would benefit from the guidance of an experienced and objective third party, couples therapy is likely to benefit you.
How Much Does Couples Therapy Cost?
Our couples and marriage therapy services cost $125–$200 per session, depending on the therapist you match with and the methods they use as part of your custom treatment plan. You’ll also need to complete an assessment before we can match you with the right therapist for your needs. This initial intake session costs $150.
What Are the Benefits of Couples Therapy?
Couples therapy can help you and your partner:
- Improve communication
- Resolve disputes
- Clarify your feelings about the relationship
- Build trust
- Enhance intimacy
… and more. Your therapist will help you and your partner clarify your goals (both as a couple and as individuals) at the beginning of the process so that you can make measurable progress.
What Methods Does Therapy Utah Use for Couples Therapy?
At Therapy Utah, our couples therapists may employ any of the following methodologies:
- The Gottman Method: this method includes a comprehensive assessment of your relationship and a series of interventions to improve verbal communication, remove barriers, increase respect and affection, and more.
- Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT): this method focuses on attachment bonds and emotional regulation to change organizing factors in your relationship.
- Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT): this method is based on using principles such as mindfulness and acceptance to help resolve interpersonal conflicts.
We also have our own methods to help rebuild trust after betrayals and heal relationships. The LIFT Program provides a specialized system for partners who are seeking ways to restore their faith and confidence in each other.
Do I Need to Attend All Sessions with My Partner?
During couples and marriage therapy, some sessions require both partners to be present, whereas others may only require one of you. You and your therapist will create a custom program based on the issues you are facing and the methods you use to explore and address them.
