Premarital Counseling and Therapy – Counselors in Colorado Springs

Congratulations on your engagement! How exciting! I’m sure your mind is racing with a list of things to do and your emotions may be all over the place – a bit scared, nervous, joyful – all mixed up together.

Planning a wedding can be exciting, but also draining and stressful. With so many decisions to be made, it can be tough on anyone in any relationship. Thinking past the wedding, to married life, brings about another set of decisions and changes, which can also create apprehension and stress.

Even the most happy and prepared couples, will find benefit in premarital counseling. Sometimes, a pastor or priest may require counseling before they agree to perform the wedding ceremony. Other times, couples will choose premarital counseling to set themselves up for success. Either way, couples find it helpful.

A Colorado Springs Thriveworks premarital counselor will facilitate a discussion with you and your partner, discussing some the following items:

  • Expectations for household duties
  • Communication styles
  • Religion/Spiritual practices and attendance
  • Finances
  • Children/Parenting and discipline styles
  • Intimacy Expectations
  • Expectations of personal space and time
  • Location and type of home
  • Relationships with family members

This list can be overwhelming! Many of these items will surface in one way or another during the first year of marriage. It’s helpful and wise to discuss these topics in a calm and unrushed manner, so that when the situation arises, you’ll both know what to expect which will reduce the stress of the situation. Planning ahead for these possible contention points can set your marriage up for success.

. Choice theory was helpful through my relationship counseling but also could be used individually to helps each person grow themselves. Jerry used real scenarios in order to water down the theory, making it less scientific and more geared toward individual use. Jerry was patient, helpful, and very understanding.
