Couples Therapy and Premarital Counseling

Couples Therapy and Premarital Counseling

~Couples do not need to be in a relational crisis to work on their relationship~

All couples go through periods in which they feel disconnected, stuck, and/or uncertain about their future together.  And although many couples truly want to repair their relationship, they don’t know where to start.  The situation becomes more challenging and efforts made to improve it don’t work, and even seem to create more conflict.

At Empower You Experts, our Phoenix and Scottsdale locations have experts that work with LGBTQ couples, married couples, and unmarried couples of all races, cultures and ethnicities.  We strive to take a collaborative, unbiased approach to help couples work through their issues more effectively together, and regain the relationship quality and satisfaction that is lacking.

How can couples therapy and premarital counseling help?

Many common relationship struggles can be effectively addressed in couple’s therapy and premarital counseling.  Results may include improved communication, skills to get what you need from your partner, negotiating through differences and disagreements, overcoming infidelity, improved quality of connection, improved sexual connection, insight into how issues from your family of origin are sabotaging your marriage.

In couple’s therapy and premarital counseling, we will identify those factors contributing to the issue(s) at hand, and clarify the ways in which you would like your relationship to be different.  We will work on enhancing the quality of your interactions around issues that tend to generate conflict, for example, by improving communication of emotions, feelings, wants, and needs, and gaining new tools for managing intense feelings.  The hope is you will be able to understand each other on a deeper level and be able to handle challenges in your relationship more effectively both currently and in the future.

How does couples therapy and premarital therapy work?

Couples therapy and premarital counseling are typically structured and action-oriented.  Often, one partner is more motivated for couple’s therapy in the beginning. This is normal and does not need to be a deterrent for starting therapy.  Couples therapy and premarital counseling are a life-changing experience; they are both challenging and rewarding.  The psychologist and therapist at Empower You Experts help couples open their hearts to each other and create a deeper, more fulfilling relationship.

At Empower You Experts we allow couples to explore all of their concerns in a safe, non-judgmental environment.  Reach out to us to schedule an appointment for you and your partner!
