Pre-Marital Counseling
My view of marriage is centered on Biblical principles and therefore the life long commitments made in a marriage are intended to be taken seriously.   Getting married is easy.  Staying married takes planning, work, and knowledge.  The purpose of premarital counseling is to identify your strengths as a couple, improve the skills you already have and develop new skills that will take you through all the years of your lives together.  Pre-marital counseling isn’t intended to be a screening process to determine whether you and your betrothed are a good match.  You’ve already made the decision to marry.  Research in the last couple of decades has shown that couples who get the information and help when they don’t need it fare better than those who don’t.
You will begin by taking the PREPARE/ENRICH online assessment to identify your current strengths and growth areas as a couple.  You will receive a customized report showing the results of your assessment.
Then we will meet together for five to six sessions to review the results of the assessment and to learn important relationship skills in a comfortable, relaxed and even fun way.  
As a couple you will:
  • Identify your strengths and build new ones
  • Strengthen your communication skills
  • Uncover stressful areas and resolve conflicts
  • Explore your families of origin
  • Comfortably discuss financial issues
  • Establish personal, couple, and family goals
  • Understand and appreciate personality differences
