“….though modern marriage is a tremendous laboratory, its members are often utterly without preparation for the partnership function. How much agony and remorse and failure could have been avoided if there had been at least some rudimentary learning before they entered the partnership….And that statement is equally valid for all relationships.” ~Leo Buscaglia, Loving Each Other
THE most important preparation:
Not for your wedding
For your marriage.

One Post-Wedding Couples Counseling Session
We’ll schedule a couples counseling session after “the big day” -usually 3-6 months later so that we can check back in. We will refine the groundwork we laid and address inevitable changes in the relationship as you have entered a new stage. This may include topics such as finances, extended family relationships, sexuality, spiritual beliefs and following up on your unique strengths and growth areas, as we identified in our initial assessment.
