Here at Emery Counseling, your premier Fort Collins marriage counselors, we’re here and ready to provide a safe and comfortable environment for you and your spouse. We understand that it can be hard work to have a lasting, successful marriage without encountering some rough waters from time to time. We give you tools you need to get through these rough waters and into the calm waters. It’s actually very common for couples to run into issues and need assistance working through those issues. If you’ve decided that marriage counseling is right for you, we’ve got some tips that can help you get the most out of it.

The first step in getting the most out of your marriage counseling is to acknowledge a problem exists within the relationship. It’s not uncommon for one spouse to deny that a problem exists when it’s clear that one exists to the other spouse.

Secondly, you must also acknowledge that you could be a part of the problem. We advise viewing your marriage as a system where there’s a balance occurring between you and your partner. In fact, it’s a rare day when one person is solely responsible for all of the problems in a marriage. Remember: it takes two to tango.

Last but not least, you should be willing to consider behavioral changes. A willingness to make adjustments in how you each act and react for the sake of your marriage will take you far in marriage counseling.
