Premarital Counseling

After our premarital counseling session.

  • Do you want to build a strong foundation to avoid future divorce?
  • Do you want to understand and address potential conflicts and differences with your fiancée?

If so, I offer a unique premarital counseling package.

I utilize the prepare/enrich assessment which gives partners a detailed report on your strengths and weaknesses (areas of growth) as a couple. Prepare/enrich also provides evidence-based tools to address your areas of growth in order to facilitate couple intimacy and a strong relational foundation.

As a couple therapist, I also work with couples in conflict – sometimes on the brink of divorce. This experience, as well as my own painful divorce, has enabled me to help couples avoid such pitfalls that lead to prolonged disillusionment and eventual divorce.

My training and experience in PACT and RLT also provides me with the ability to work with and encourage the parts of you that may, at times, be uninterested in utilizing communication tools. I also view couple dynamics from an attachment lens to help you understand and address each other’s deeper wants and fears.

Premarital Counseling Package = 2, 2-hour session:

Before you two meet in my office, you will be sent login information to fill out the online prepare/enrich assessment. You two will fill out the assessment on your own, without consulting with one another.

Our first session together is 2-hours long. Here we will dive into the prepare/enrich assessment results to highlight your strengths and areas of growth as a couple. In this session, we will practice the evidence-based tools tailored to your results.

Our second session is also 2-hours long. Here we will recap the application of the relational tools learned and practiced in the first session. We will also futurize your relationship, and work on the first draft of your “mission statement” as a couple. The remaining of the time, we will work on intimacy building tools through the lens of each other’s attachment orientation.

The total investment of the premarital package $500, which normally is $540.
