Premarital Counseling for a Positive Marriage!
Congratulations! You’re Getting Married!
What is Premarital Couples Counseling?
Premarital counseling offers couples the opportunity to learn and develop the skills they need to make it through the tough problems and situations they will experience, not only leading up to their marriage, but throughout their lives. Couples therapy touches on issues relating to religion, finances, and communication – common issues couples have; however, if you cannot navigate your way through them, these issues have the ability to drive a wedge between you and your partner. Many couples enter into marriage without learning the skills they need to create, and sustain, a satisfying and long-lasting relationship. Hundreds of couples enjoy the benefits of premarital couples therapy so that they have the ability to enter marriage with clarity and peace of mind – and you can too!
Every session is structured around your unique needs as a couple, and may cover important topics related to handling arguments, miscommunication, financial responsibilities, and more potentially complicated concerns. No life, or relationship, is perfect. There will always be complications and obstacles to overcome; however, with the right skills and mindset, you and your partner can have confidence that you can make it through anything life throws your way, and you can gain this through the advising of a therapist.
Premarital counseling is an investment of time and money that will show returns for years to come. Homework will be given in-between sessions and tends to prompt and valuable material for our premarital therapy sessions. Enjoy confidence in the strengths of your relationship and create tools for handling stressful times.
