Is it Too Late to Try Couples Therapy if We’ve Discussed Divorce/Breaking Up?
Due to the stigma around couples therapy and the myth that only couples on the brink of breaking up go to couples therapy, it’s not uncommon for couples to start couples work when they are already at their wit’s end. If you’re at this point, it’s likely some damage has been done to the relationship, however, that certainly doesn’t mean that all hope is lost.
For many couples, the sensitive nature of couples therapy creates the intimacy required to get the relationship back on track. This can include working on improving communication, increasing intimacy, discussing mismatched libidos, addressing dishonesty, affairs or other barriers that prevent a couple from feeling fully safe in the relationship.
As long as everyone in the relationship is willing to come to session with an open mind and heart, couples therapy can help. It’s never too late to start. Depending on the depth of the dissatisfaction, unhappiness or resentment, for some couples the time in therapy is spent on reaching a decision about staying together or ending the relationship.
Whatever your marital or relational challenge, when you come to therapy, we can work on finding the most amicable solution together.
How Much Does Couples Therapy Cost? Does Modern Intimacy Accept Health Insurance?
Our therapy practice is considered “out of network” and we are not currently paneled with any insurance providers. We know that therapy can be an investment and are happy to speak about how we can make your treatment sustainable.
While we do not accept insurance, many of our clients receive reimbursement from their insurance networks by submitting superbills, or special invoices, that many insurance companies accept. If you have questions about eligibility and reimbursement rates, it might be beneficial to give your insurance company a call as they can answer the questions that are more specific to your insurance plan.
If the financial aspect of therapy is a source of anxiety, we often will have sliding scale spots open for patients who need it. Modern Intimacy is also a training site that trains graduate-level students while they work towards their hours for graduation. Services with students have a significantly lower rate that may make attending sessions more affordable.
