What is premarital counseling?

Premarital counseling is a specialized type of therapy that helps couples prepare for marriage.


Premarital counseling can help couples of any gender, race, or religion identify and address potential areas of conflict in their relationship.


I offer specialized training to couples in blending values, opinions, and expectations based on families of origin and life experiences.  

Any couples therapist will tell you that the time to learn how to complain, argue, parent, weather the ups and downs of money, and care for aging parents isn't when the problems arise. Premarital counseling helps you establish strong conflict resolution skills well in advance

Is pre-marriage counseling worth it?

Look at your parents and the way they communicated. How did they solve problems?  Did they have fun together?  How often did they show affection or complement each other?  Were they friends and fond of one another?  Perhaps they split up and had animosity towards each other.  Even worse, maybe they should have split up and had a toxic communication pattern.

Learned behavior is an influential factor in how we interact with our partner.  Healthy couples fight; it's how they fight and then repair that makes the difference between relationship masters and disasters.


Premarital counseling helps you learn to raise complaints to your partner without starting an argument so that the two of you stay connected, problem-solve, and improve the relationship.
