You would like to move in together, get married, maybe have kids in the not so far future?
You see life with this person but you have some hesitations.
Maybe is that they shut down during conflict.
Maybe is that they drink too much sometimes.
Maybe they broke your trust and you are having a hard time rebuilding it.
Maybe they are not too good with their money and this alarms you.
Maybe you just moved in together and you are having a hard time adjusting.
Maybe managing the demands of two careers feels overwhelming.
But you love them so much and you know they do too. You have thought about couples therapy, however, you are not married not even engaged yet. Married couples are the ones that go to therapy, right?
Dating should not be that hard, right?
Dating therapy will help you and your partner:
Learn more about each other’s inner world
Remind the two of you the qualities and quirks that brought you together
Deepen connection and enhance intimacy
Address the obstacles and hesitations you are battling with head
Reach you how to best support each other’s dreams
Add meaning to your relationship
At Healing Connections we believe you should start working on your relationship from the get-go. A healthy and strong foundation makes for a fulfilling long-term relationship. We specialize in dating counseling for couples who are committed but not that committed yet.
We are passionate about working with millennial couples managing dual careers, navigating long-distance relationships, overcoming financial struggles impeding moving in together or buying a home, and committed on breaking unhealthy intergenerational cycles.
We understand the challenges of creating a fulfilling relationship in modern times. There are unique challenges that millennial couples face that previous generations did not have to even think about.
We think that the challenging areas of your relationship should be addressed before you hit your next milestone as a couple. Too often couples wait until a few months prior to their wedding, to seek pre-marital counseling. Although we see value in premarital counseling, (and also provide this service), we think that the pressures of an upcoming wedding can interfere with the counseling process. When alarming concerns are brought up during premarital counseling, couples often push it under the rug due to the social stigma of postponing or calling off a wedding.
Dating therapy gives you and your partner the opportunity to explore family of origin issues, past traumas, core beliefs, values, fears, hopes, and areas of tension with ample time and no pressure.
Not planning on buying a ring or getting married? No worries, we still got you and your boo!
We understand that different couples have different milestones in mind. The same logic applies, the more milestones you hit, and the more your lives become intertwined, the harder it is to reconfigure your relationship or choose to part ways. More feelings, people, and things are involved. We want to ensure that you have a strong foundation moving forward so you can confidently weather the storms together. That’s what dating therapy is all about.
Did you say part ways?
Yes, I did!
At Healing Connections we believe that not all relationships are salvageable and that some people heal better apart. That is never our decision to make, we will never tell you that you should part ways. We respect that this is the couple’s decision AND we do support couples if they arrive at this conclusion. We believe that break-ups don’t have to be traumatic and can be done consciously in a way that honors the feelings that were once shared.
Take a second to use your imagination to look into the future and imagine what your relationship can look like six months down the road if you choose to seek help today. You don’t have to continue to settle for “not so great” relationships.
At Healing Connections we provide dating therapy for couples located anywhere in Florida utilizing an online therapy platform. Contact us today for a complimentary 10 minutes phone consultation and we will answer all of your questions.
