The success of your marriage is all about building a strong foundation from the beginning. You can become confident and prepared by learning the skills you need to make your marriage last. We all know that along the way every marriage has conflict and challenges. Dont only plan for the wedding but prepare for the marriage. Get the tools you will need for healthy communication, conflict resolution and emotional intimacy.  This will also be a time to communicate any concerns before the big day.  

Every couple has expectations and it’s important that these are identified and discussed. Premarital counseling might be challenging but it’s worth the effort that’s required to make your marriage last.

HOW IN-HOME COACHING WILL BENEFIT YOU

In-home coaching is a powerful process that has changed thousands of individuals and families for the better. We understand that reaching out for help can feel overwhelming and vulnerable. This process is uniquely tailored for each family and we are sensitive to your specific needs. 

Scheduling a session can be challenging logistically as we have such busy schedules. This is one reason in-home coaching may be the best option for your family. We go to you and meet in your homeThis saves you time. But perhaps more importantly, meeting in the safety of your own home is more comfortable allowing you to open up more quickly and get the help you are looking for to meet your goals more efficiently. Our sessions are 90 minutes rather than the traditional 50 minutes, giving everyone time to share.

The intentions of coaching and therapy are different.  The coaching process is action based and focuses mostly on the present and future instead of only on the past.  A Certified Coach helps you identify your goal (a closer family, less tension and anxiety, better communication) and what specific steps need to be taken to make that happen.  It’s about results and bringing real change.
