    What to Expect From Couples Counseling at Our Practice

    Couples counseling is not only for couples who have been married for decades—it can be beneficial for any couple, including those in dating relationships and newlyweds.

    At Empowered Life and Wellness, LLC, our experienced couples therapist, Eleanor Reiter, utilizes an integrative therapeutic approach drawing on multiple theoretical and evidence-based interventions. This allows her to better tailor her approach to each client. She is especially passionate about working with couples and has extensive training in the Bader-Pearson Developmental Model of Couples Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples, and the Gottman Method. Put simply, she wants to help you and your partner through whatever challenges you’re currently facing in your relationship.

    Some issues that commonly bring couples to therapy are:

    • Balance (Work/Life/Family)
    • Betrayals
    • Blended Families
    • Conflict Management
    • Chronic Illness
    • Extended Family Challenges
    • Empty Nesters
    • Infidelity/Cheating
    • Intimacy
    • Mental Illness
    • Parenting Conflicts
    • Trauma

    If any of the above relate to you and your partner in your relationship, Eleanor would love to connect with you to discuss how she can help reconnect and rekindle your love for one another. We provide complimentary telephone consultations to new patients.

    Marriage Counseling for Couples in King of Prussia & Allentown

    When you live with someone, you will have arguments ranging from the very mundane to more serious issues, and the intimate nature of marriage requires that you talk to your partner about everything no matter how awkward or uncomfortable. Couples therapy will show you how to handle conflict in your marriage. How you argue will be a part of the story of how you are as a couple. Through couples counseling at Empowered Life and Wellness, you will learn how to de-escalate arguments and how to manage conflict appropriately, so you don’t cause emotional pain from things you said that you’ll never be able to take back.

    Premarital Counseling for Couples in King of Prussia & Allentown

    Premarital counseling might be last on your list to prepare for marriage, if it’s there at all. While it’s not an engagement topic that’s very fun or romantic, premarital counseling can set your marriage up to succeed and thrive long-term. Premarital counseling will help you and your partner develop better communication skills, learn conflict management, uncover your shared core values, and identify differences that could create future conflict. Working with Eleanor at Empowered Life and Wellness, LLC, you can discuss expectations with your partner that will help better prepare both of you for marriage.

    If these sound like you:

    • You and your partner have arguments that don’t get resolved
    • You feel like you’re always the one who has to compromise to keep the peace
    • You want to find healthier ways to resolve conflict
    • You want to explore religious or financial differences
    • You want to define your marital roles and expectations
    • You want to build a strong foundation for a successful marriage

    … Then premarital counseling can be a great benefit to both you and your partner.

    In premarital counseling, we will likely bring up topics that you’ve discussed with your partner previously as well as subjects you hadn’t considered before. This fresh perspective from an objective third party will uncover new details from your partner. This is also an excellent time for us to find unexpected areas where you disagree and give you the tools to handle possible future conflict.

    Getting married is one of life’s most treasured experiences. Premarital counseling can help you and your partner turn that momentous occasion into a loving, lasting relationship.
