As divorce rates continue to rise in the United States, more and more couples are approaching marriage with increasing caution. While Americans are still choosing to marry, many are looking for opportunities to divorce-proof their relationships before they say "I do." Pre-marital counseling is just one approach couples are taking. In fact, many states are now requiring that couples have pre-marital counseling and the state of Georgia is so pro counseling that it provides a couple with a discount on their marriage license if they can certify that they have had pre-marital counseling with an ordained minister or licensed therapist
The function of pre-marital counseling is two-fold:
1. To assist couples in developing skills to navigate their way through marriage successfully,
2. To identify (and if possible resolve) areas of difference between couples that may become a source of conflict later.
Marriage counseling, also called couples therapy helps couples recognize and resolve conflicts and improve their relationships. Through marriage counseling, you can make thoughtful decisions about rebuilding your relationship or, in some cases, going your separate ways.
Marriage counseling is often short term. Marriage counseling typically includes both partners, but sometimes one partner chooses to work with a therapist alone. The specific treatment plan depends on the situation. It is recommended that couples commit to at least three sessions.
Our sessions will cover the following marital counseling concerns:
• Evaluating Your Marriage
• Conflict Resolution
• Communication Problems
• Role Expectations
• Your Marital Goals
• Your Spiritual Life Together
• Children (and Parenting)
• Sex in Marriage
Family counseling/ coaching is designed to assist families in creating healthy ways of interacting and growing together. Through family coaching, families or individuals within a family learn better ways to resolve conflicts and manage their behavior. If your family is feeling torn apart, family coaching may help you heal.
Family coaching is often short term and may include all family members or just those most able to participate. The counseling sessions will depend on your family's situation. It is recommended that families commit to at least 3-4 sessions.
Some of the issues that a family counseling plan may address are:
- Parenting Troubled Teens
- Saving Entitled Teens
- Guiding Rebellious Children
- Solving Family Crises
- Improving Family Communication Skills
- Removing Fear of Anger and Rage
- Dealing with Blended Family Issues
- Identifying the Root Problems
