Did you just get engaged?
Are you and your partner looking to take your relationship to the next level? Premarital counseling can help you and your significant other 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.
Premarital counseling 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.
Premarital counseling 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 fight fairly so you don’t cause emotional pain.
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.
