Premarital Counselors in Alexandria, VA—Counseling, Therapy

Some couples, especially those who have been together for 5+ years, don’t question the next step: marriage. Others, of course, have their reservations about the whole marriage thing—they question whether it’s right for them and their relationship.

Believe it or not, both instances above can necessitate premarital counseling. In other words, both couples that are sure about marriage and those who are still contemplating this life-long commitment can benefit from meeting with a premarital counselor.

“Make it your goal to create a marriage that feels like the safest place on earth.”

–Greg Smalley

What Is Accomplished in Premarital Counseling?

Again, premarital counseling can help any couple that is, at the very least, considering marriage. Regardless of where you are in terms of making this commitment, a premarital counselor can help you and your significant other decide if your relationship is ready for marriage—and if it isn’t ready right now, whether it might be in the future! Additionally, a premarital counselor can help you and your partner explore how your relationship dynamic might change when you make the commitment of marriage and how you can properly address issues that might arise.

The Thriveworks Alexandria premarital counselors want to help you and your partner build a solid foundation for your relationship. If you’re worried about taking this next step or there’s a challenge that you and your partner need to resolve before marriage is viable, you can find the help you need in premarital counseling. Here are some common challenges that are commonly talked about:

  • Lack of intimacy
  • Career plans
  • Parenting roles
  • Relationship dynamic
  • Visions for the future

For example, say your relationship has been lacking intimacy and you aren’t sure why or how to address this problem. A premarital counselor can help you understand what’s getting the way of maintaining this crucial component of your relationship as well as how you can continue to do so in marriage. Regardless of the problem that’s plaguing your relationship, a premarital counselor at Thriveworks Alexandria can step in and make a meaningful difference.
