The stigma that something is wrong with your relationship if you need counseling just isn’t true. Most engaged clients are very happy and do not have doubts about marrying their partner. Generally, couples seek Premarital Counseling to get educated and prepare for the common challenges of marriage. Engaged couples want to know their relationship strengths and growth areas. They care deeply about their relationship and are proactive about setting healthy patterns into motion.
Premarital Counseling is an investment into a strong, healthy marriage.
Most couples spend more time and money planning their weddings than preparing for their marriages. Having a healthy marriage creates a positive impact on each person’s happiness and life longevity. A strong marriage is also the foundation of strong families.
As a Couples Counselor, I help couples create a solid foundation for a lifelong, happy marriage. My Premarital Counseling San Diego practice includes taking the Prepare-Enrich relationship inventory along with Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. The Prepare-Enrich assessment is a program based on a set of five inventories that examine major relationship issues a couple may experience. Essentially, the Prepare-Enrich assessment gives you a snapshot of what your relationship is right now. My practice mainly entails using Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT). EFT is a research based (it works!) method of creating and keeping a strong emotional bond between partners.
I want to ensure that when times get tough, your bond will enable you to make it through anything that comes your way.
Together, we will tailor the the Pre-Marriage sessions to fit your needs. Using both the award winning Prepare-Enrich Couples Assessment and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), I will customize a package that is right for you.
This program will enable you and your partner to:
- Identify your relationship strength and growth areas
- Build solid communication skills
- Resolve conflicts
- Strengthen your relationship bond
- Explore your relationship and families-of-origin issues
My focus is on your primary needs – to feel close, secure and responded to – which underlie most conflict married couples experience. Along the way, you’ll become the expert of yourself and your relationships – able to maintain positive change.
