Premarital & Couples Counseling
We offer professional, confidential and effective premarital counseling and education. We help you build a solid foundation for your marriage.
As you move to the next stage of your relationship you want to make sure you’re communicating well through all the ups and downs of life, resolving conflicts as they come up, and staying connected with one another. And let’s face it, you don’t want to repeat your parents’ mistakes!
Premarital counseling helps you build on what’s working and improve areas that need strengthening.
Our approach to premarital counseling is to help you balance two important human needs: the need for connection and the need for separateness. We draw on the latest relationship research to help you and your significant other build the best partnership you can.
We will explore what each of you brings to the relationship and how you can be responsive to one another. We help you understand what draws you to one another and which traits have the potential for problems.
Research shows that emotional wellbeing depends on how caring and responsive your loved one is to your feelings and needs. Therefore, we will work on helping you and your loved one maintain a close and mutually respectful connection through the years ahead.
Additionally, we will look at major areas of disagreement in the relationship. Whether you’re arguing about money or the future in-laws, we will explore what feelings and values are really at the core of the difference. Research shows that 70% of all relationship conflict is perpetual – therefore we will help you develop effective ways to manage differences.
We will work together to help you improve communication about all areas of your relationship. We help couples learn how to develop an attuned, non-blaming way of relating. Each of you can take responsibility for your feelings, needs, and expectations, and communicate that clearly to your partner.
