Being in a relationship can be a very fulfilling and rewarding experience, however, many times it can be the source of significant hurt. Are you angry at your partner? Have you been betrayed and rejected? Do you both hold years of resentment toward each other? If this describes you, counseling for couples can help. You don’t have to continue feeling and living this way. I can help you identify and address the specific core issues that are causing dysfunction, not just the general “communication” problem. Counseling for couples focuses on how you both need to understand each other’s grievances. I create an atmosphere for you both to be heard and for reconciliation to happen. My job is to be impartial, so there may be sessions where the focus seems like it is mainly on you and others where it is mainly on your partner.
Premarital Counseling for Couples
Additionally, you don’t have to be on the verge of divorce to benefit from couples counseling. Premarital counseling for couples helps because it forces a you to look into foundational issues that may cause problems later. This process doesn’t have to be intimidating. We will look at the strengths of your relationship as well as challenges.
