Marriage, while exciting and full of possibilities, can also be a time of significant adjustment for couples. When the planning, preparation, parties, and celebrations of you as a couple have passed, what remains are the activities of daily "regular" life. Like after every significant event in one's life, it is not unusual to encounter a let-down of sorts. This is normal. For some couples, this transition can be problematic, especially if the couple had experienced conflict before the wedding.
By seeking pre-marital counseling, you will have the opportunity to address the following issues:
- Personalities and families-of-origin
- Communication patterns
- Conflict resolution
- Intimacy and sexuality
- Long-term goals
I will help you navigate these topics before and after the wedding and will empower you with the skills required to live harmoniously as a married couple. I can help you articulate your expectations, hopes, and dreams, for your newly joined lives. I will guide you to a pragmatic approach that encourages and prizes flexibility, fairness, respect, and the maintenance of your friendship.
