Have you found the person that you want to spend the rest of your life with?
Congratulations! As you prepare for your wedding, a great way to learn more about yourself, your fiancée and be best prepared for the future is through premarital counseling. Premarital counseling can take many forms, however, what I generally recommend is 4-6 hour long sessions accompanied by the Prepare/Enrich Program. You may have heard of Prepare/Enrich before. It's an online survey that takes only 30-45 minutes to complete.
Some couples are getting married for the first time and wondering about what they might expect in the future in terms of their relationship, communication, and family dynamics. Other couples may be marrying for the second or third time, may have children from prior relationships.
Typically, premarital counseling involves both you and your partner taking the survey at your leisure. We will then meet together for a few sessions and discuss your unique strengths, as well as areas of potential growth for your relationship. You will receive information on personality traits, communication, family backgrounds, and financial values in order to resolve conflicts and reduce stress. These discussions can form the foundation for communication in your marriage.
I offer discounts on premarital counseling packages, which include four sessions for $160 per 55 minute session. This is a discount of $80 off the regular price of therapy with me. For couples with more intense needs, I may recommend 90 minute sessions. Also, you may receive a discount on your marriage license based upon attending premarital counseling. If you want to take advantage of this discount- I'd be happy to sign the form for you.
Prepare/Enrich has been used over the past 30 years with over 3 million couples-premarital and married. It can be specialized to a number of Christian denominations and spiritual backgrounds.
Please feel free to contact me and we can discuss options for you and your partner!
