Premarital Counseling for Couples

Are you and your romantic partner intending to get married in the coming months? Are you feeling overwhelmed by the life changes that await you? Those feelings are natural. Living with someone, dividing the household income, and starting a family all pose numerous challenges. It’s not that the strongest couples avoid these challenges—the secret is that they know how to deal with them when they arise.

Let Sandra teach you and your spouse how to talk through your problems so they do not harden into long-held resentments that leave many couples feeling lost. Marriage is a journey. She will make sure you have all the tools you need to thrive on that journey together.

Marriage Counseling

Are you and your spouse looking for ways to resolve longstanding conflicts? Do you find it difficult to speak about sensitive issues without resorting to defensive tactics? You are not alone. Any intimate relationship between two people is bound to have its challenges. Some of these may stem from past infidelities, financial troubles, or previous traumatic experiences. Sandra will give you and your spouse the space to address these issues in a non-confrontational and honest manner.

We all know that expressing yourself can be difficult. There are many unsaid thoughts and unshared feelings that can turn toxic if left unaddressed for too long. She will help you bring these thoughts and feelings to light. More often than not, saying these things out loud does not lead to the catastrophe a client initially expected. The opposite occurs. A healthy conversation begins and the path forward becomes all the more clear.

Sandra facilitates openness and honesty. The things you and your spouse share in your sessions will only strengthen your understanding and respect for one another. Schedule your marriage counseling session today.

Try Group Therapy for Couples

Group therapy offers a unique therapeutic experience alongside the bonds of kinship, community, and like-mindedness. In group therapy sessions by yourself, with a loved, or a spouse, you get a chance to strengthen your connection with your counseling partner while also hearing from the similar experiences of others.

Working through your own problems is a wonderful thing that yields remarkable results. Hearing other people work through their own problems offers something else altogether. Listening is just as important as sharing, after all. By hearing other people share their struggles and hardships, you only deepen your own emotional intelligence and sense of empathy.

Are you curious about group therapy for your area of concern? Don’t hesitate to let Sandra know. She just might have a spot available in one of her regular group therapy sessions.
