    Couples & Marriage Therapy

    Do you feel like your relationship is at a standstill? Are you and your partner stuck in the same argument loop every night? Do you feel like you and your partner are drifting away? Do you desire more intimacy between you and your partner?

    All things can be improved with just a little support, no matter how big or small. With couples therapy, you’ll learn how to communicate your feelings and needs, and identify ways to feel more emotionally connected and secure in your relationship. In couple’s therapy sessions, couples will develop the necessary skills needed to maintain sustaining love.

    Some issues that bring couples to therapy are:

    • Addiction/Partner Addiction Support
    • Balance (Work/Life/Family)
    • Blended Families
    • Conflict Management
    • Chronic Illness
    • Divorce
    • Extended Family
    • Empty Nesters
    • Infidelity/Cheating
    • Intimacy
    • Mental Illness

    The intimate nature of marriage requires that you talk to your partner about everything, no matter how awkward or uncomfortable. Couples therapy will help you learn how to be a better listener, and how to make your voice and needs heard in a productive and positive manner.

    Couples therapy will also show you how to handle conflict in your marriage. When you live with someone, you will have arguments ranging from the very mundane to more serious issues. How you argue will be a part of the story of how you are as a couple. 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.

    If any of the above relate to you and your partner in your relationship, contact me today for a consultation. I would love to speak about how I may help reconnect and rekindle your love for one another.

    Premarital Counseling

    Premarital counseling might be last on your list, 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 can help you and your partner improve your relationship by helping you develop better communication skills, learn conflict management, uncover your shared core values as well as identify differences that could create future conflict. Working with a therapist, you can discuss expectations with your partner that will help better prepare both of you for marriage.

    So 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

    … 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. For guidance and support to strengthen your future marriage, please contact me today so we can schedule an appointment.
