When To Seek Counseling
It is a good time to seek out couples counseling when you and your partner are struggling to communicate effectively. You may also seek out counseling when there are unclear boundaries or when past relationship experiences are hindering your current relationship. Our experienced counselors will listen to each of you, determine the core issues of your relationship, and collaborate with and guide you to healthier solutions.
Our counselors will encourage each of you to open up without favoring one person or the other, or taking sides. Our desire is for this to be a safe space and keep it from being lopsided. We may provide each partner deep explanations for the way they feel or their thought patterns. This will help you and your partner understand and have greater empathy for one another. Our counselors will point out and explain the signs and triggers that you and your partner are falling into unhealthy habits. We always want to provide healthier alternatives, and much more.
Relationships that are going well can benefit as well. Our Scottsdale couples counseling offers help to root out and remedy any potential issues before they become major problems. We can help maintain healthy relationships by providing you with habits and routines to deepen your connection to one another and increase the joy you bring each other.
Our Scottsdale Couples Counselors Can Help
Relationships are like flowers; when nurtured and cared for properly, you will have a vibrant, healthy blossom. When relationships are neglected, it will wither, decay, and eventually die. Our counselors are experts at getting to the core of your problems and assisting you in opening up and understanding each other. With their help, you will be able to nurture and build happy and long-lasting relationships.
Over time, it is easy to accidentally nurture a few unhealthy habits. Couples often find themselves avoiding certain topics of conversation to avoid disagreements. Our counselor will help you understand why and how you have fallen into these habits and assist you in recognizing the signs of falling back into them. We want you to provide you with plenty of healthy alternatives.
For example, recognizing a pattern of retreating from a topic. With the proper tools you can confront the difficult subject instead of fleeing from it.

Your Questions Answered
What can you expect from a couples counseling session?
The issues you work through, the session topics, and the solutions you find will depend heavily on the goals set early in your counseling process. Most of the time, you and your partner can expect to get to the core of your problems, understanding their history, and working out the best possible solutions to correct them.
When specific incidents of difficulty are brought up, counselors are trained to watch for the origins of disconnect. Oftentimes in communication or emotion. Your counselor will assist you in overcoming these barriers.
Can you go to couples counseling before marriage?
Of course! Couples counseling before marriage can deepen your relationship. It helps you find solutions and establish healthy habits early on.
Working through issues early on will help increase the chances of a positive outcome and deepen your relationship. This can increase both of your happiness; even if your relationship does not last as long as you had hoped.
Will you be seen individually or only as a couple?
After meeting all together, each person will likely meet with the counselor privately for the second and third sessions. After that, individual work is typically referred out to another therapist. This ensures no biases in your couples counseling.
Remember that since couples counseling is about you working through your issues together, nothing in the private sessions will be kept secret from your partner and may be discussed openly as necessary.
Can you go to couples counseling without your partner?
Typically couples counseling is reserved for couples counseling. Sometimes, people start with individual counseling and bring their partner in for a couple sessions. If more couples sessions are needed, a couples counselor will be recommended.
We understand that there can be many reasons why you may choose to discuss relationship concerns alone. We are willing to help you work through those issues at your own pace. We can assess together if and when couples counseling would be beneficial..
