Marriage therapy or couples counseling is designed to help you work through relationship or communication problems and create emotional closeness. We help couples understand the emotional needs of each partner, meet each other’s need, and learn tools to negotiate differences, problem solve and work through conflict in a healthier way to gain and maintain a deeper level of intimacy and closeness.
Premarriage or premarital counseling can help dating or engaged partners understand their differences and resolve differences before marriage so they can have the tools to create a happy and healthy marriage from the start.
Common issues we help couples work through are:
- Healing from infidelity
- Divorce and remarriage
- Sexual incompatibility
- Healing from addictions
- Physical or mental conditions
- Same-sex relationship issues
- Cultural clashes
- Blended families
- Communication problems
- Conflicts about child rearing
- Changing roles, such as retirement
