You may feel nervous that you are not prepared or don’t have 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. I will help you prepare for your life together by giving you 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. Learn the tools needed for a healthy relationship. Through this process you will get the skills you need, build a lasting foundation and gain the confidence to be completely prepared for your big day and your future together. 

Benefits of In Home Coaching vs Therapy

We understand that reaching out for professional help can be overwhelming and feel vulnerable. This decision can also be challenging logistically as we often have such busy schedules. This is one reason in-home coaching may be the best option for you and your family. We go to you and meet in the comfort and convenience of your home, this saves you time from having to drive from one place to another. Perhaps more importantly is that meeting in the safety of your own home will likely help you and your family feel comfortable causing you to open up more quickly and allow you to get the help you are looking for sooner rather than later. Our sessions are 90 minutes rather than the traditional 50 minutes allowing time for everyone to share.
