It is relieving to recognize that you are not alone and that your struggles sound pretty much just like other couples. A couples therapy group is a place where it is safe to be real in your relationship with your partner — in front of other people.

Relationship 101 is a skills-based class for couples. It is designed for couples who are starting out, need a refresher, or need to improve their relationship. Couples who feel like they don’t understand their partner’s behavior, struggle to communicate effectively or find they are arguing a lot could benefit greatly from the skills taught in the class. Join PFCS Therapists Juli Christensen and Arturo Morales for this 10 week opportunity:
