Congratulations on your engagement!  Now let's talk about the rest of your life.  Premarital counseling is an enriching experience that can foster a deep emotional intimacy between the couple as they learn more about themselves and one another. Your counselor helps you learn valuable tools to create and maintain a meaningful and fulfilling marriage.  You will explore goals and expectations that you have for your relationship developing an investment in an authentic partnership and connection. 

Areas of focus may be:

  • Exploring areas of strengths and vulnerabilities so you can create a balanced partnership.

  • Learning to be assertive so you can express your needs while maintaining respect for one another.

  • Practice conflict management skills exploring how to successfully talk about hard topics.

  • Identifying lifestyle goals, financial goals, values, parenting goals, and other priorities in your relationship. 

  • Understanding family of origin influences and how to create your own healthy patterns.

  • Creating and maintaining healthy open communication dialogue and skills. 

What to expect:  Your counselor will meet with you to hear your history, assess your needs, and develop a plan for you that will best create a sturdy foundation for your next 50 years.  Typical number of sessions is 6 sessions to complete the program.  You will be asked to complete our Make A Difference Personality Profile to get started.  This assessment will help couples better address areas of focus while understanding their communication patterns and needs.   We can also offer a certificate of completion if needed.

Couples can expect after completing sessions to be better equipped to smoothly transition into their marital relationship with confidence and authenticity.
