You don’t have to be married to come in for couples counseling. There are many reasons first responder couples find counseling to be helpful. The first responder lifestyle can create even more challenging stressors for you both. Here are a few reasons counseling can help you in your relationship:
● Manage your conflict in a healthier way.
● Learn how to live the responder life together.
● Prepare your relationship for the next step.
● Restore your marriage.
● Get into a rhythm that works for both of you.
Marriage Counseling sessions last between 50-90 minutes and cost $120 - $150 per session. Sessions occur on average once every week or two weeks, but we can also schedule these less often for those who have shiftwork schedules that make it difficult to plan regular sessions. Based on your goals and treatment needs, counseling can be as brief as 8-10 sessions or can be longer-term over a year or two.
"Chains do not hold a marriage together. It is threads, hundreds of tiny threads, which sew people together through the years."
