Did you know that premarital work reduces the likelihood of divorce by 31%? Imagine how much more it helps when you have a specialist helping you! From first marriages to blended families, premarital counseling will help you to build a marriage with a foundation of love, empathy, and passion.
Premarital counseling will help you and your fiancé find the hope and understanding you need to overcome the challenges your marriage will face. We begin by creating a foundation from which your marriage can grow and thrive. We start the conversations necessary to ensure your communication is strong in all the important areas, including sex, finances, and parenting. When we hit a topic that may turn into a tough struggle, you and your fiancé will work together to learn new ways of connecting over these potential issues to reduce the negative impacts they can have in the future. 
For those of the Christian faith, I also incorporate biblical principles into the work we do for your marriage. Your relationship with your spouse can be the strongest testimony you have to share the love of God, and I want to help you succeed. I want your marriage to show how a lifelong commitment, centered on Jesus, can transform even the most broken people into loving and joyful souls!

Premarital counseling sessions last between 50-90 minutes. A 50-minute sessions costs $140 and a 90 minute sessions costs $200. I offer reduced fees for first responder and military couples. Sessions occur on average once every week or two weeks, but these can be increased in frequency based on your wedding timeline. Premarital counseling sessions are usually 6-10 sessions in length, but can be longer if needed.
