Couples who seek premarital counseling stay together at a rate of 80%. Do I need to say more?
Sometimes we focus so much on the wedding we forget about the marriage. Using a combination of Prepare/Enrich assessments, narrative techniques and tools I use in my therapy practice, I will help you understand your relationship patterns more deeply, strengthen the ones that are serving you well, and change the ones that aren't. As a feminist therapist, I will help you address the ways power differences and societal expectations are influencing your relationship on a subconscious level.
This package gets you:
Four premarital sessions covering conflict management, communication, a personal stress profile, and a values assessment

Give us a call to see if we are a good fit for you.
Research shows that couple's relationship begins to decline when preparing for and having children. Added stress and less time shakes up the family, and if good habits are not put in place, often leads to increased hostility and conflict that extends beyond the couple's relationship and leads to compromised parenting, decreased quality in parent-infant interaction, and impacts your children's social, emotional, and cognitive development.
