Premarital Counselors in Virginia Beach, VA (Great Neck)—Premarital Counseling, Therapy

Michelle and Jose are getting everything ready for their wedding: they’ve finally booked their venue, decided on their catering company, hired a band, and sent out all of their wedding invitations. They’re both excited (and a little nervous) for the big day, but elated to finally tie the knot, after spending 10 loving years together. That being said, they each have concerns about marriage: Both of their parents divorced when Michelle and Jose were teenagers, and the two have been cautious of the idea of marriage ever since. And so, they decide to work with a premarital counselor.

“A good marriage is one which allows for change and growth in the individuals and in the way they express their love.” –Pearl Buck

Premarital counseling helps Michelle and Jose work through their marital concerns, as well as issues that have been a problem in their relationship. They build a solid foundation for their next commitment, and they feel more than ready to say “I do” in just a few short months.

Counseling with Keshanda Garland

★★★★★
My session with Ms. Garland focused on identifying my life events and how they impacted how I previously dealt with diagnosed type 1 bipolar disorder. She listened and engaged with me as I vocalized my immediate fear and overwhelming stressors. Ms. Garland sat with me to customize coping skills for my triggers, including mania during parenting young children and going through a divorce. I have more confidence in how I’ll handle these problems with continuing with the aid of my prescriptions medicines. Thank you! Highly recommend for a compassionate and personal experience.
