Relationships take work.

Every successful relationship requires that both partners choose on a daily basis to be self-less, to be kind, to be patient, and to be committed.  It requires open and honest communication, even about the difficult stuff.  It is not always fun and definitely not always easy.

During Relationship & Marriage counseling, Maren commits to each partner to provide a place where they can feel safe and be heard.  She works with the couple to identify their individual needs and how they can better meet those of their partner.  She looks at factors such as family history, personality differences, and patterns in communication to pinpoint ways that each partner can improve their relationship.  For change to happen, both partners must be willing to look at themselves and to put in some work.

Premarital Counseling

Maren is also available to provide premarital counseling to couples who are currently or are considering becoming engaged.  With the incredibly high rates of divorce, it is clear that many couples are entering into marriage unprepared.  Research has shown that premarital counseling can increase levels of satisfaction and commitment within the marriage.  It can also reduce the frequency of conflict and lower the risk of divorce.  

If you are looking to strengthen your relationship or tackle challenges you are having, please consider connecting with Maren.
