You're getting married! Woohooo! Learn the skills necessary for a long-lasting marriage and learn even more about your partner!
Did you know that couples that complete premarital counseling are 70% LESS likely to get divorced?! Crazy right?
Now I know what you're thinking...."Why would I pay a therapist money for premarital counseling when I can get it for free from my local pastor?"
One benefit of completing premarital counseling with a therapist is that I am professionally trained in marriage and relationships. This means that the work we will be doing will be intricately geared towards marriage.
Another benefit is that we will be building rapport! That said, if you and your partner want to return in the future for marriage counseling, I will already have a deep understanding of who you are as a couple. You won't feel like you have to "start over" with your story.
Marriage is no picnic! Ok, sometimes it is...but it can often be incredibly trying. I get couples in my office when they have reached their breaking point and often headed toward divorce. Premarital counseling can give you the tools you need to make your marriage a success!
