Are you a dating, engaged or newlywed couple? As part of planning for your life together, we invite you to schedule time for yourselves and gain increased peace of mind as you participate in discussions that are fun, practical and relevant in exploring and addressing important issues. Our premarital counseling sessions are designed to enrich your relationship as a married couple, focusing on important topics like positive communication skills, healthy conflict resolution, sexuality, financial management, parenting and spirituality. Our premarital sessions are LGBTQ+ friendly and open to all.
Why is premarital counseling important?
Couples from all walks of life should have access to quality premarital education and counseling! Studies have proven that couples who engage with premarital counseling are better informed, equipped and less likely to divorce. In fact, it has been shown that premarital counseling improves marriage by up to 30 percent. Premarital counseling provides evidence-based tools which will be helpful to you in fostering a healthy relationship as you begin your married life together.
How does premarital counseling work?
First, we start with the Prepare Assessment, completed online, for use in your premarital counseling sessions. Sessions are tailored to your assessment results and will touch on other general helpful topics. We suggest at least 6 premarital counseling sessions but you can attend as many as you’d like. In between sessions, you and your partner will be provided with additional discussion topics to talk through together.
