Marriage Counseling in the Wake of a Loss or Tough Diagnosis
When you begin marriage counseling in the wake of a major loss, transition, or tough diagnosis, you may be unsure of what to expect from this process. The short answer, when it comes to expectations, is that your relationship’s unique needs and circumstances will guide the process. Counseling doesn’t exist to force any sort of agenda. On the contrary, therapists aim to help individuals and couples realize the healthiest versions of themselves. Whether through the exploration of coping strategies, identification of underlying tensions and triggers, utilization of conflict management tools, or a host of other approaches, counseling will simply allow you and your spouse to move forward in healthier, more self-aware ways.
You may have explicit questions that you need answered before committing to marriage therapy sessions. That’s okay. Give us a call and we’ll do our best to answer your questions and address your concerns to the best of our ability.

When life gets particularly tough, it’s not always reasonable to expect your marriage to absorb the full impact of the challenges you’re facing without some professional assistance. Seeking guidance isn’t – at all – a sign that your marriage is weak. In fact, in many cases, seeking assistance can be a sincere sign of strength. Feeling secure enough in yourself that you don’t have to justify to anyone that you need a little guidance is a very healthy place from which to begin navigating life’s most challenging moments. You and your spouse don’t have to weather this time in your lives alone.
