Marriage counseling is one of the best investments you can make in your relationship. Whether you are wanting enrichment, having “typical” problems, or in a crisis, marriage counseling can be incredibly beneficial. Engaged or newly married couples are a great example of those seeking enrichment, though long-term couples can also benefit from a proactive approach to making a good marriage great. Every couple will have “typical” problems caused by factors such as personality differences, expectations, role discrepancies, and upbringing. Stressful circumstances, such as relocation, job change or loss, having children, or death of a family member, can also contribute to these “typical” problems. Many couples find themselves in a crisis at some point in their marriage, often due to infidelity, addiction, or unresolved issues.
In all of these situations, it is helpful to have another set of eyes on your relationship to help you see your strengths, as well as identify and work on your weaknesses individually and as a couple. In my counseling with couples, I do not take sides; the marriage is my client. I will do everything in my power to help you do the necessary tasks not only to stay married but to have a thriving, healthy, passionate marriage.
