Life is short yet long; sometimes, happiness feels fleeting, and most of the time, we face various challenges: a family of origin, academic pressure, romantic relationships, marriage, parenting, career anxiety, illness, grief, life transitions, etc. When facing these big and small "hurdles," do you also find yourself pulled by different voices within, in need of a place where you can be seen and heard? Fate may play tricks on us, but who knows if this is not an opportunity for growth? I am willing to create a safe, warm space where we can listen to those voices, understand our different needs and find meaning in our experiences.

Marital issues can weigh heavily on our heart, leaving us feeling lost, confused, and disconnected from the partner we once cherished. Perhaps communication has become strained, leading to unresolved conflicts and increasing emotional distance. Trust may have been broken, leaving wounds that are yet to heal. You are longing for more intimacy, both emotional and physical, but find yourselves stuck in negative patterns that seem impossible to overcome. These challenges are slowly eroding the foundation of your relationship, leaving you with a sense of dissatisfaction, loneliness, and unmet needs.

Marriage Counselling

How does marriage counseling work?

Marriage counseling works by teaching couples concrete skills to communicate with one another and solve disagreements in healthy ways. A trained mental health professional works with both members of a couple to explore difficulties the couple may be having and helps them develop skills to address these matters. Couples who don’t have any difficulties but want to prepare for marriage may develop skills for the future.

How long does marriage counseling typically last?

Marriage counseling is a short-term form of therapy; the process may last between four and eight sessions. Other forms of relationship guidance from mental health professionals, such as couples therapy, are longer lasting, may focus on the past rather than just the present, and are tailored to the individual couple and their emotions, history, and patterns in the relationship. Couples therapy often lasts for 12 weeks or longer.

Is marriage counseling effective?

Marriage counseling helps many couples develop relationship skills that may not have been acquired or tested in a relationship; partners may be better able to communicate and address conflict following counseling. However, there are many different forms of marriage counseling, and this form of counseling does not have as strong an evidence base as other modalities such as couples therapy.

Is marriage counseling effective if only one partner wants to go?

Yes, marriage counseling can still be effective if one partner convinces the other to engage in the process. Of course, whether counseling is effective depends on the couple’s commitment to work on their relationship; however, the short-term, skills-based nature of marriage counseling makes it a relatively easy “ask” of a partner, and the hesitant individual may see its value once counseling begins.
