Every relationship is unique, and sometimes outside counseling can be helpful in navigating challenges and transitions a couple faces. These challenges and transitions include life changes, such as a new baby or caring for aging parents, blending families together, overcoming a marital affair, or parenting a difficult child. Couples counseling is not only helpful for couples facing challenges, counseling can also be beneficial for couples who are seeking to grow in their relationship, such as increasing communication and intimacy. We also offer premarital counseling to help prepare partners to enter a solid marriage and establish a strong foundation.
At Garrett Counseling, we understand that making the decision to seek couples counseling can be very difficult to make. For that reason, we want to offer a few signs that counseling could benefit your relationship:
When considering couples counseling, you may find yourself wondering what you and your partner should expect. At the first visit, your counselor will meet with you and your partner. During this time, the goal is for the counselor to get to know you and your partner. Next, the counselor will meet with each partner individually. Then, you and your partner will meet together with your counselor to discuss the plan and focus for therapy.
Whatever your relationship may be facing, Garrett Counseling is here to work with you and your partner in couples counseling. You can make an appointment by calling our office at (256) 239-5662 or online by clicking here.
Online counseling is a real-time live video interaction with your counselor. Online counseling is an excellent option for those who prefer to have a care of a counselor from the safety and security of their own space.
