Premarital Counseling

Want to Start your Marriage out with a foundation that will help it last? You came to the right place as Healthy Relationships are a Passion of mine.

*Couples who participate in pre-marriage programs experience a 30% increase in marital success and fulfillment over those who do not participate.

Using knowledge from the science of why relationships last, I will help Empower you to:

  • Ensure Healthy Habits of Master Couples That Create Lasting Connection

  • Learn how to Handle Conflict and Stay Connected

  • Learn Healthy Skills of Compromise

  • Process Fights and Regrettable incidents to Stay Connected

  • Learn the importance of Love Maps

  • Learn to create a Dialogue around perpetual issues

  • Homework Reading during engagement or for newly Weds: Getting Your Sex Life Off to a Great Start.

In addition to the above, I love to utilize the Symbis Assessment, which will help ensure we address any areas that could later become potential areas of conflict.

  • 76% of married couples say they wish they had pre-marriage education.

  • 86% of Americans over 18 say all couples considering marriage should get pre-marriage education.

  • Couples who do not receive pre-marriage education are more likely to see their problems as atypical and unsolvable.

  • 41% of divorced couples say lack of pre-marriage preparation contributed to their divorce.

So does pre-marriage counseling work?

Absolutely. Research conclusively shows that couples who succeed, gain the knowledge they need before they settle into destructive patterns that often lead to divorce. In fact, couples are 31% less likely to get divorced if they get some sort of pre-marriage training before they marry.
