Do you want to work with a trained premarital counselor in person before your marriage?
There are many benefits to meeting with someone to give you personalized support to divorce-proof your marriage. In-office counseling is valuable as I get to see and experience your relationship live. I also provide the space for you two to practice any skills and enhanced ways of relating right in my office.
Before we meet, I will send you a personalized link to your prepare/enrich assessment. Prepare/enrich gives us a great starting point as it highlights strengths and areas of growth. As for any assessment, the purpose is to create empathy for each other. This is also the basic purpose of our sessions: to help, or remind you what motivates and moves your partner in order to be experts on each other and yourselves.
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 inspired me to help couples avoid such pitfalls that lead to disillusionment and divorce.
In addition to being a prepare/enrich facilitator, I am formally trained n PACT and RLT which provides 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 on deeper levels.
Basic Premarital Counseling Package
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 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.
Investment in two premarital sessions is $560.
Please feel free to contact me with any questions.
Never get tired of doing little things for your partner. Sometimes, those little things occupy the biggest part of their heart. — John Gottman
As a Knot vendor, in addition to people inquiring about premarital counseling, people inquired if I officiated weddings. At first I said no, then after thinking about it and watching others at my friends’ weddings do it, I decided why not? I can do that. I am a Minister through Universal Life Church as well as a member of Toastmasters International and I have officiated a handful of weddings at this point.
My approach is to have a great ceremony and have fun!
Because your wedding is one of the most memorial days of your life, I have several ceremony templates to get you started in the process. I also strongly encourage us to practice before, I’ll attend the rehearsal and let’s nail it down so there is less stress for you two!
