Premarital Counseling in Bensalem, PA—Counselors and Therapists

Marriage is romanticized: Beginning at a young age, we fantasize about marrying the person of our dreams and living happily ever after. In other words, we hope for a fairytale. And we forget that marriage (or any relationship for that matter) requires work. This is a harsh reality for some. But before you get too disheartened, you should know that this work is worth it! Working through tough challenges and obstacles brings you closer, not to mention it strengthens your relationship. Sometimes, though, we need help doing so. That’s where a premarital counselor can prove valuable.

“Behind every great relationship are difficult and uncomfortable conversations we rarely get to see. Great relationships don’t just fall into our laps. They require people to move through their fears and insecurities and do the hard work to move wounds into healing.” –Vienna Pharaon

Over 35 years ive known frank

★★★★★
First met frank in the mid 80's as he came to Phoenix Arizona as a certified surgical technologist & worked with him there in a level 1 trauma center. It wasn't much after his stay in Phoenix he returned to Philadelphia where he then became Philadelphia fire fighter, and his effort of doing that excelled to peaking position as Captain for the PFD. As a friend of Frank through all his dedication and motivation to higher education , that his commitment & dedication hadn't already been in progress . But as a friend to see what he has done and become to his educate himself to helping people in the community is second to none. But more than anything he's a great person and to have him as my friend all these years seen what he's done to keep helping people in the private sector, bravo frank !

Talk Therapy that helps

★★★★★
I found Frank during a tough time in my life. I was dealing with some pretty heavy issues related to family and career and suffering from depression and severe anxiety. Frank listened and had a way of making me see things in a different (more positive) light. It's clear he cares deeply about others and genuinely wants to lessen their suffering. I highly recommend Frank as a counselor. His empathy and skills made him more than qualified to assist in my journey to wellness. Frank: thank you for all that you do. You have made my life less dark, and for that I am grateful.

Frank Yaeger

★★★★★
I first worked with Frank as a client. He was my personal trainer. He not only expanded my understanding and knowledge of physical health, but also gave me the confidence I need to far exceed my initial goals. As the role of a licensed professional counselor (LPC) I had invited Frank to be part of a three-person panel which included two Ph. D’s speaking on the topic of estrangement. The event went extremely well, and Frank’s contributions were very insightful, informative, and offered tangible methods to address estranged love ones. I highly recommend Frank as a therapist. He will provide unwavering empathy, ‘meet you where you are’ and provide the necessary interventions and compassion to have breakthroughs along your therapeutic journey
