Pre-Engagement Counseling
Before you pop THE question or before you say, “Yes” to THE question, get some advice on whether it’s a good decision to marry each other.  Over 50% of all marriages fail and often people say they wish they had picked more wisely.  Do you ever worry about ending up like some other couples you know?   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.   Deciding to marry is one of the most important decisions you will ever make. You can’t afford to just make this decision with your heart.  A decision made with both your head and your heart is more likely to lead to a happy, healthy marriage. 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
