Effective Couples and Pre-Marital Counseling
Congratulations on creating a relationship to share the journey of life together. It is great that you are willing to make your relationship even better by working on it. Together we will explore your strengths and potential challenges as a couple. We will assess the current situation and create a meaningful path for our work.
In our couples sessions, we will typically discuss crucial areas such as:
- Extended Family Relationships
- Values and Beliefs
- Communication and Issue Resolution
- Partnering with Integrity
- Children and Co-Parenting
Discovering and discussing your hopes, expectations, and plans is important for maintaining a strong relationship. We tend to do this early in our relationships, but often not in much depth or at all in later stages. In addition, most of us do not proactively address areas of current or potential conflict. In my experience, you will benefit greatly from naming and managing potential bricks, even if they feel like they have sometimes become brick walls. Finally, regardless of how long you have been together, effective communication and conflict resolution, and behaviors that maintain intimacy are crucial tools. Utilizing these tools can make the difference in keeping relationships healthy and fulfilling for you both.
I find that most couples need evening appointments, and so I keep a few select ones open to accommodate these requests. To start your pre-marital or marriage counseling Email me or call (949) 342-4548.
