Preparing for Your First Session

Before attending your first marriage counseling session, it can help to sit down with your spouse and talk about your goals, intentions, and expectations. Ask your spouse questions such as: "What are our goals as a couple?", "Why do we want to attend counseling?", and "What do we hope to achieve through counseling?" This self-reflection will help guide your discussions during the session and ensure that you are actively involved in the counseling process.
