Premarital Counseling: What We Do
Our premarital counseling sessions deal with everything marriage related before you “tie the knot.” Marriage is the biggest commitment you will make in your life. It is a blessing to have someone to love, care for, live life together with and grow old next to for as long as you live. However, there are a lot of things which need to be discussed and addressed beforehand to smooth things out.
Being married means you and your partner are essentially no longer two separate people. You are merging lives. You essentially become one person in that you combine your hopes, dreams, life goals, finances and many more things into one cohesive unit. This is a challenge and it is good to talk about all of these topics in advance before you enter into a lifelong commitment to avoid any surprises along the way. Our licensed counselors will help you both get the best start possible in your soon-to-be-married life.

Finding The “One”
From an early age, most of us have been taught that there was one person who was perfect for us in life. That one person who would complement our faults perfectly, always be there for us and make and keep us happy forever. That is what we imagine when we hear of riding off into the sunset “happily ever after” right?
The reality is not so simple. There are hundreds if not thousands of people you could marry, live life with and be happy with. The questions you should ask yourself are, “who do I want to make a lifelong commitment to?” and “who is that one person I want to become my spouse?”
Your spouse becomes the one person who complements you and who becomes your life partner – your everything. Our counselors help make your commitment easier by sorting differences out ahead of time, giving you clear communication channels and helping you both resolve conflict in ways that will make your marriage better.
