pre-marital counseling

Preparing for marriage is an exciting time! Designating time to invest in your relationship will set the foundation for a healthy marriage.

If you are planning to marry your partner, you likely already know that you enjoy one another and can imagine a future together. But have you talked more specifically about the life you want to have together, years down the road? Do you feel confident that you’ll be able to continue making each other feel safe, important, and loved as you age over the years? Have you considered what it will be like to keep the passion alive over the course of your lifetime?

It can be natural to assume that if you love someone enough, you’ll automatically know how to face everything that comes your way. However, marriage is hard work. Everyone hits bumps in the road, whether its from external stress or conflict in your relationship.

Pre-marital therapy is an invaluable opportunity to dig deeper into these important questions and help you get more connected by addressing the serious, tough topics before saying “I do.”

Setting time aside to work through your relationship before you get married is the most important piece of preparing for the big day.

A therapist will get to know each parter and work through topics that you’ll inevitably face during your marriage. A therapist will guide you in identifying your unique and shared values and communicating those with one another.

Pre-marital therapy is customized for each unique couple. The areas of focus generally will include:

  • Communication
  • Conflict resolution
  • Expectations of one another
  • Discussing difficult topics (in-laws, holidays, finances, sex)
  • Plans for the future
  • Spirituality

As you work through those areas, your therapist will guide you in having the difficult conversations that will prepare you for your married life together.
