You're Getting Married

This can be an exciting and wonderful time! But planning a wedding, dealing with new family dynamics, and the normal fears that come with getting married, (Is this the right person? What if they change once we get married? Am I really ready for this? What if we end up like our parents? Etc.) can cause a lot of stress and anxiety during this time. Plus with the divorce around 40-50%, and many people deciding to give up on the idea of marriage all together, you might wonder if you will really be able to make it to the end. After all, no one plans on getting married just to get divorced. 


Premarital counseling can really help you deal with the stress and anxiety that can come up during your engagement. But, the most important thing premarital counseling can do is strengthen the foundation you are building your marriage on, so it can be a marriage that not just survives but one that thrives! This way you can start your marriage with a full “toolbox” that can help you communicate, resolve conflict, navigate the challenges that come your way, and build a meaningful, fulfilling marriage. 


I offer an 8 session Pre-marital Boot Camp to get you started strong! 

Some of the topics that we will cover include:


  • Communication

  • Conflict Resolution

  • Family Dynamics

  • Expectations

  • Finances

  • Sexual Relationship

  • Decision Making

  • Cultural/Racial/Spiritual Differences

  • And More…


And together we can determine which topics may be most important to you, where you want to spend more time, and what additional topics may need to be covered. Although, the boot camp is 8 sessions, if you feel you would like to add additional sessions, I would most certainly accommodate your needs. We can always adjust as we go. 


If you want to build a strong foundation for your marriage, call me or email me today to set up your first session! You can also use online booking via Zocdoc. If you do not see any times that work for you, please call, and we will do our best to accommodate your schedule.
