Couples

Your sessions are customized to who you are as a couple, your specific needs and concerns.  You might be:

  • Many years married
  • Engaged, seeking premarital counseling
  • Newlywed or recently married
  • In a serious relationship and want to check your couple compatibility for long-term
  • With or without children; parenting or a stepparent with stepchildren
  • Remarried or considering second marriage
  • In a Christian marriage, or sharing important values and beliefs
  • Facing life changes like empty nest, career & job changes, health changes or retirement – these impact relationships!

How it works:
1) You begin by each taking a couples’ inventory which we set up just for you online.  It covers a wide variety of relationship issues and will help us focus our session time efficiently.  Couples say it gets them thinking and talking right away, before sessions even start.  2) Next, we schedule your 4 to 6 sessions where the four of us meet privately to help you build an even stronger relationship.

Goals:

  • To identify your strengths as a couple and build new ones
  • To strengthen your communication
  • To increase your ability to resolve disagreements
  • To consider your family-of-origin, role relationships, and expectations
  • To develop a workable budget and financial plan
  • To develop your personal, couple and family goals
  • Ultimate Goal: To help you build a stronger and happier relationship!
