Congratulations on your engagement! Planning to be married in the near future and want to build the strongest foundation for your marriage? Premarital counseling sessions can be part of your wedding planning!
Discussing important issues like finances, children, conflict resolution, in-laws, religion, (and more) early on in your relationship or marriage is a great way to avoid future conflict if you happen to disagree in any of these areas. Not to worry if you and your partner share different perspectives though ... it's been researched by John Gottman that 69% of marital problems are chronic and that it's the way couples communicate about their differences that predict success or failure. We are experts at helping couples strengthen positive communication habits, patterns, and styles.
Not sure about weekly premarital counseling sessions? Our 3-hour online Marriage Masterclass is also the perfect opportunity to delve deeply into your relationship. Work one-on-one with Corinne for a fully personalized class experience. Reach out to us today to schedule an appointment or to request a consultation.

No matter how healthy your relationship with your partner may be, premarital therapy is a great way to reinforce and maintain a strong relationship.

Premarital counseling with Dr. Corinne Scholtz at The Center of Connected Living - FL is a great way to learn how to better understand your partner, set realistic goals and expectations for your marriage, and start planning for the future. Seeing a premarital counselor isn’t just for working through issues that you may be facing as a couple, but also for growing together as a couple and focusing on the positive aspects of your relationship.
Important Things to Consider Before Starting Premarital Therapy
Before you and your partner begin premarital therapy, there are a number of things to keep in mind. For starters, just as with any form of individual or couples counseling, you’ll get out of it what you put into it. It’s important to come to each session with an openness to learn, grow, and put into practice what you discuss with Dr. Scholtz. Premarital counseling requires active participation from each of you.
Another important consideration to make is that you may also want to schedule individual sessions in order to separately work through any issues that may arise during the course of your premarital sessions. Often times, the ability to form healthy relationships starts from within, and Dr. Scholtz is willing to work with both couples and individuals to set them on the path toward a happy and healthy marriage.
