Did you know that couples that receive pre-marital counseling are less likely to divorce?

Congratulations on your engagement! You are lucky to be getting married at a time when decades of scientific research on relationships and marriage has informed us about two major things:

1. Love is NOT enough to protect a couple from divorce. Factors like a couple’s communication skills, level of emotional engagement and responsiveness matter. They are critical and protective factors.

2. couples that receive pre-marital counseling are less likely to divorce.

Given these findings, we offer pre-marital counseling sessions that are focused on helping couples develop the skills necessary for building a solid marriage and navigating the future together in a healthy and fulfilling way. The diagram below shows the specific skills that will be developed through pre-marital sessions. By focusing on these areas, you and your partner can learn to have the most important conversations that will shape the rest of your lives together in a way that promotes long lasting intimacy and fulfillment.

Two types of services are offered to meet the diverse needs of engaged couples.
