Agreeing to Marriage Counseling

One of the most important decisions that you and your partner can make before entering into marriage counseling will be to actively engage in the process. By simply agreeing that the problem or dilemma is shared — that both of you have issues that will need to be worked through — you will have already taken an important step in the right direction. Moreover, by agreeing to enter into marriage counseling, many couples find that they each try a little harder, even before their appointment, which begins to shift things for the better.

Resolving Conflicts Through Therapy

Though every couple will have its own unique set of circumstances that will need to be addressed and worked through, many couples who enter into marriage counseling do so to resolve long-standing conflicts, including those associated with the following:

  • Lack of communication
  • Recovering from an affair
  • Differing parenting styles
  • Balancing work and home

Whatever particular issues that you and your partner will need to work through, we will focus on opening up a clear and constructive line of communication between the two of you once again. In many cases, this will be the key to working through each of the other issues that you and your partner need help to resolve.
