Premarital Counseling




Thinking about scheduling your marriage ceremony? Then it’s a great time to schedule premarital counseling.


You might feel curious or even reluctant to do premarital counseling. However, the knowledge and information you gain are invaluable for your relationship’s future. I use PREPARE/ENRICH as an assessment tool and framework to best serve you as a couple. This tool is built solidly on decades of research with millions of couples.


The process begins with each partner completing an individual online assessment at home. In the office, we go over your results together.


The PREPARE/ENRICH premarital assessment addresses current areas of strength and growth present in your relationship. We discuss and build on the strengths you already possess. Using these assets as a foundation, we’ll work on “growth areas” next. You’ll learn important relationship skills to boost your marriage readiness.

A relationship about to take the next step to marriage.

Exploration and Opportunity

Premarital Counseling is both an exploration and opportunity for deep insight and open conversation. Perhaps the two of you haven’t talked about a number of the areas covered in the assessment. Marriage is different from dating.


This process improves your relationship as you identify areas of discomfort and blast through them. Your ability to resolve conflict is tested with an objective third party present to help guide you through how to do so rationally, not emotionally.


The assessment is an in-depth analysis that gives you the tools you need for long-term success, whether you are currently cohabitating, newly engaged, newlyweds or even if you’ve been married for years.


Not only do you receive a comprehensive analysis, but you:

  • establish personal, couple and family goals,
  • come to understand and appreciate personality differences and
  • strengthen your communication skills.


You might feel more comfortable keeping your blissful, premarital rose-colored glasses on. However, if you deal with your blind spots now, you have the best chance to beat the odds. And with depressing statistics that 50% – 70% of marriages end in divorce, you don’t want to be a statistic, do you?
