Free Preliminary Consultations on Premarital Counseling and Therapy
When you give us a call, we’ll set up a free initial consultation where you’ll get to answer a questionnaire to determine how you feel about each other and the relationship. From there, we’ll be able to pinpoint strengths and weaknesses, and set goals to overcome those problem areas.
Many people shy away when they hear words like “counseling” and “therapy,” but there’s no reason to. Premarital counseling is there to ensure that you and your partner have a healthy and robust bond that’ll easily transition into a stable and satisfying marriage. We offer a safe space for open and honest discussion with a touch of professional advice and guidance.
