Prepare for more than just your "dream wedding day" -- let us help you prepare for marriage by giving you the skills you need to turn your dream wedding into a happily-ever-after marriage! Schedule an appointment with Tiffani, Kendra, or Marjane and make premarital counseling part of your wedding preparation.
As magical and wonderful as your wedding celebrations will be, we know that this event signifies the first day of the rest of your married life and represents an important commitment to each other. Premarital counseling can help you and your partner start your marriage with the tools to make it last. During the course of premarital counseling you will learn new skills, break bad relationship habits, and discover new things about yourself and your partner. Your therapist will help you talk about important issues (e.g., money, sex, and family) as well as every day topics (e.g., division of responsibilities in the home). Our goal is for you to enter your marriage with realistic expectations, positive goals, and the skills you need to create your new life together.
Therapy to start things right: Your marriage may be one of the most important relationships you will have and it is important to invest in it. With high rates of divorce, it is no wonder that couples today are being more proactive in creating healthy, happy marriages by attending premarital counseling. Many studies have shown that premarital counseling and education programs can significantly reduce the risk of divorce. Our therapists are trained in the Prepare/Enrich program, a premarital counseling program that has been used by over 3 million people. Prepare/Enrich was developed over thirty years ago on a solid foundation of research as a way to help couples explore and strengthen their relationships. Despite the high rates of divorce and marital conflict, we know that marriage is wonderful and fulfilling, especially when both partners have the tools to make it work. For this reason, we are dedicated to helping couples prepare for marriage and enrich their relationships.
Therapy customized for you: Your relationship does not need to be distressed in order to benefit from therapy (though we can help those couples too). We will customize your premarital counseling experience to enrich your relationship, wherever the starting point may be. Typically, you will begin by taking a research-based, customized online inventory that assesses your relationship's strengths and areas for growth. Using this individualized information, your counselor will provide helpful feedback as well as facilitate fun, interactive activities that will enable you to learn and practice relationship skills to help you grow closer as a couple. You will also receive a copy of your inventory results as well as a helpful Couples Workbook that will guide your preparation during sessions and in your daily activities.
Therapy to build a lifetime together: We know that relationships have the potential to bring us life's greatest joys, when managed well. We also know that relationships can sometimes bring some pretty serious heartache, when mismanaged. Many couples dream of a wedding, but those who truly live happily ever after are those who focus on preparing for not only the wedding day, but for their marriage. Please contact us by email or phone with any questions you may have about premarital counseling or to schedule your first appointment today!
