If you are about to get married or thinking about a deeper commitment to your partner, premarital counseling is the best investment you can make to strengthen your relationship! Our therapists are here to help.
Who is Premarital Counseling For?
Premarital counseling is for couples that are doing well and want to make minor adjustments or reaffirm their decision for further commitment. Relationships are complex and our premarital assessment will help identify areas you may not realize need attention and highlight your strengths as a couple. It allows you to feel confident that you and your partner have the skills to navigate life's challenges as a team. At Lone Wolf Psychological Services we are to learn to navigate these issues.
During this process, you and your partner will meet with one of our well-trained premarital therapists for a first session to learn about your relationship story. Then your therapist will provide an assessment that has been shown to help strengthen relationships. The next few sessions will be spent reviewing the assessment and addressing any growth areas that emerge. This type of counseling is designed to be brief and typically lasts 3 – 8 sessions.
We are currently offering in-person sessions at our Wash Park office and virtual sessions.
Why Premarital Counseling is Important
If your relationship already feels like it is pretty healthy and normal why would I attend premarital counseling? This is often a question couples ask when contemplating all of the other wedding expenses they have to cover during this time. However, research supports that premarital counseling is correlated with increased marriage satisfaction and decreased chance of divorce. And isn't the whole point of getting married about the marriage?

Even the healthiest relationships can benefit from a third-party expert talking them through how to make relationships satisfying long term. Often healthy couples say "We are so in love now, I want this feeling to last the whole marriage."
That's exactly what makes premarital counseling important! It takes the love you already have, identifies hurdles to the love continuing, and provides instruction on how other happy couples keep the love going throughout the years. It is much easier to keep a relationship on track than to correct a relationship that goes off the rails!
