Most frequent questions and answers

Marriage counseling offers a supportive and nurturing environment aimed at enhancing relationships and resolving conflicts.

Within this safe and welcoming space, couples — whether they’re married or in long-term partnerships — are encouraged to openly share their concerns, identify areas for growth, and embark on a journey toward mutual understanding and resolution.

This collaborative process hinges on the active involvement and dedication of both partners. With the therapist’s gentle guidance and expertise, couples navigate challenges, foster deeper connections, and cultivate healthier dynamics.

Through heartfelt communication, genuine empathy, and a shared commitment to growth, couples can embark on a path toward building a more resilient and fulfilling relationship.

At Wellness Counseling Center, we utilize Emotionally Focused Therapy, which focuses on fostering secure emotional bonds between partners. Through EFT, we help couples identify and understand their underlying emotions and attachment patterns, facilitating deeper connection and intimacy.

Absolutely, individual counseling sessions are available in addition to couples counseling. We recognize that individual needs and concerns may arise within the context of a relationship, and sometimes it’s beneficial for each partner to explore these issues independently.

Whether you prefer individual sessions, couples counseling, or even counseling for families, we tailor our approach to best meet your needs and goals for therapy.
