Symbis Relationship Counseling

After being with my boyfriend for 6 years you think you know everything about them and think you are on the same page, communication is key and sometimes having a middle man to help with that is the best thing. We are now engaged and I'm so excited to continue working with Nancy to improve our relationship.

Very friendly and helpful

She was very nice and gave us a great experience. The assessment was helpful and gave us a look into points that we need to further discuss and things we can come back to talk about in the future. Would recommend this to anyone getting married to not only make sure you two are on the same page, but also to learn a bit more that you may not have know about your future spouse.

Amazing Ceremony

We used Phelps Counseling, Consulting & Training for premarital counseling and to officiate our wedding. Nancy was very thorough, prompt and professional. She really went above and beyond at our rehearsal and our wedding. She personalized our ceremony and kept us on our time schedule. She made us feel important and she added touches to the ceremony that she learned during the counseling. I am very glad we did the counseling and let her get to know us so she could personalize the ceremony. I would recommend Phelps Counseling, Consulting & Training to anyone getting married.
