Many couples don’t understand the importance of premarital counseling in Jacksonville, FL and Gainesville, FL, and have a hard time placing value in counseling when they are already in a happy, healthy relationship. Couples who pursue marriage counseling in Orlando, FL and Tallahassee, FL during their engagement or very early in their marriage can significantly reduce their risk of divorce by developing a higher level of marital satisfaction.
Here is what you can expect from premarital/early marriage couples counseling: First, we will highlight the strengths of your relationship and discuss strategies for utilizing those strengths to prevent marital strain and overcome unavoidable hurdles. We will provide a supportive, non-judgmental environment to discuss any areas of your relationship you wish to change or improve. Lastly, we will guide you through the process of discussing important issues that every couple should explore before engaging in marriage, such as having and raising children, financial issues in your marriage and establishing roles within the relationship.
Discussing these subjects can sometimes be anxiety provoking; however, we will facilitate respectful, positive communication which will allow both partners to express their authentic desires and concerns in a way that is productive and ultimately results in mutual understanding.
