“Building Families, Strengthening Marriages, Changing Lives.”
Marriage Counseling & Couples Counseling
Whether you are dating, engaged, or already married my passion is helping you build and reclaim the intimacy and emotional connection in your relationship. I offer a Christian-based approach to couples counseling and focus on providing you with the tools needed to communicate more effectively, move beyond unhealthy-negative cycles, heal from breaches of trust, and draw closer together in matters of faith, parenting, decision making, sex and more.
I view couples counseling as a central opportunity for you and your significant other to learn how to join together in establishing a healthy and emotionally connected relationship. It is also a process in which you "prepare" to navigate through your differences, while also learning how to "prevent" unnecessary conflicts and breaches from developing.
If you've been recently engaged, now is the time to begin investing in your soon to be marriage and one of the best ways to do so is through premarital counseling. It is important to know that the time and effort you put into preparing your relationship for marriage today will pay great dividends in the future long after you say "I do." My desire is to see every couple I work with develop the foundations for a healthy marriage, while helping them enjoy each step of that journey.
Premarital counseling sessions involve not only learning needed skill sets, but applying them as well. It is through such practice that important habits are formed, which ultimately carry your relationship forward with a needed health and vibrancy over the long term.
Appointments can be scheduled on a weekly or every-other week basis. You also have the opportunity to schedule longer or shorter appointment times:
- 50 minute
- 90 minute
- Intensives: 3-4 hour blocks of time
*Please note premarital counseling generally consists of 4-8 sessions, and couples have the option of using one of two online assessments: SYMBIS or Prepare-Enrich. A one time fee, of approximately $35, is required for either assessment.
I look forward to helping you schedule for a day and time that best meet your lifestyle needs.
