Private Premarital Counseling

High-quality, premarital counseling is the way that successful, responsible, pro-active couples ensure that their marriage will continue to grow grow even stronger, happier, and deeper over the years. Our private premarital counseling is different than our structured premarital programs in that it gives you the time and space to talk about whatever you need to resolve before moving forward into marriage.

Our Strategic Approach Helps You:

  • Identify potential “Friction Points” unique to your relationship
  • Create agreement around finances, parenting, responsibilities, boundaries, and priorities.
  • Gain deeper understanding for each other’s values, life goals, and what you both need to feel loved and respected.
  • Learn how to communicate with each other
  • Create a secure emotional foundation
  • Address any issues that are concerning you
  • Help you move forward into marriage with confidence

We Make it Exactly What You Need It To Be

Flexible, open ended premarital counseling without time limit or specific structure allows you to talk through (any and all) sensitive subjects, resolve lingering issues or concerns, strengthen your relationship, create agreement, and — of course — learn the skills and strategies that will help you build a beautiful future together.
