REALIZE what you need to do to have a better relationship.
It makes sense to want to make sure your relationship is healthy before taking big steps. You might be unsure it will last or wishing you could predict with better accuracy whether you’re with the right partner. The truth is, we can never answer that with a guarantee. Sometimes though, you just want to be more sure by understanding what constitutes a healthy relationship. Or, you and your partner just want to know what you can do better.
You will know you need to seek premarital counseling when you feel any or all of the following symptoms:
-You feel a pressure to be happy all the time and enjoy every minute of your partnership
-You’re noticing negative patterns and not sure how to fix them
-You haven’t talked about the bigger issues in your relationship
-Planning of something like a wedding has taken over and you don’t connect anymore
-You’re not sure whether you should get married
-You are confident, but want to enter marriage knowing you and your partner have tools for good communication
Our therapists will assess the strengths and areas for improvement within your relationship, and teach you the tools to making it stronger. This way, you can avoid the negative patterns taking over from the get-go, and feel confident when you tie the knot.
Depending on the issues you are dealing with, sessions will focus on better understanding your partner, accepting your differences, communicating directly and effectively, and learning how to best manage conflict. It’s okay to feel confused, take preventative measures, or address getting cold feet. We can help you gain clarity and feel good about your next steps!
