We’re Getting Married!
Prewedding counseling has one distinct advantage: It’s easier to learn how to communicate and work through problems before, rather than after the wedding. You won’t be going into your marriage with unspoken expectations or off-base ideas about what married life will be like. Right now, you’re in a building stage.
Certainly you have expectations, but premarital counseling can give you the tools you need to learn how to address your differences and form good habits that you’ll use throughout your life together.
One bride put it this way: “For me, it meant I could discuss concrete things about our future without bringing it up myself-or freaking him out.”

Do we really need premarital counseling?
Would you like to learn how to listen and communicate more effectively? We can help with that. You’ll find a safe, neutral environment, where you both can freely express desires, concerns, expectations, fears, and more.
It’s the time where you’ll clear the air about any toxic emotions that may be haunting your relationship: bitterness, resentment, jealousy, distrust.
Your counselor can direct you on your path to being free from such feelings so that they don’t cause harm later on in your marriage.
If one or both of you come from a dysfunctional background, premarital counseling can teach you how to confront and make peace with your past and break the cycle. A harmonious, happy, lifelong marriage IS possible. Let us help you experience it.
