CONGRATULATIONS! You and your partner have decided to take the relationship to the next level, and I am glad you are here.
Right now you are probably asking yourself, “Why?” Premarital Counseling (Therapy) says you want to ensure that the next step in your relationship is off to a great start.
I believe that prevention is 3x more effective for any relationship than any intervention. Therefore, by attending Premarital Counseling (Therapy), you are recognizing that prevention is 3x more effective for a stronger committed relationship than intervention.
So CONGRATULATIONS again for being an insightful couple and understanding how beneficial Premarital Counseling (Therapy) can be for your relationship.
Making a conscious decision to enter into a committed relationship can be both exciting and scary, as it is a new adventure. You may question if this person is “right” for you and there may be things about your partner that you have yet to discover.
Often when the relationship is fresh and new, you are so into each other that you forget to talk about the important issues such as money, parenting, household roles, etc. that could cause a bit of dissent later on down the road.
Premarital Counseling (Therapy) is an often overlooked, but essential, piece to having a healthy and long-lasting relationship.
When you choose to attend Premarital Counseling (Therapy) with me, I provide a safe non-judgment space for you and your partner to discover who you are both as individuals and as a couple, as well as give you the tools needed to flourish as partners in a committed relationship.
You will pay for sessions as you go – $200 for each 90-minute session.
You also have the flexibility of adding on sessions as needed, so you are not limited to 4 or 6 sessions.
The Premarital Counseling program consists of taking the PREPARE/ENRICH online assessment before your first session. The cost of the online assessment is included in your package price. You and your partner will then attend sessions where you will receive customized feedback and learn important relationship skills.
During the program we will cover the following topics: Strength & Growth Areas, Relationship Dynamics, Communication, Personal Stress Profile, Conflict Resolution, Couple & Family Map, Personality Profile, Financial Management, Relationship Roles, Sex & Affection, Leisure Activities, Children & Parenting, and Spiritual Beliefs.
Monique is a Certified Facilitator of PREPARE/ENRICH, the #1 premarital assessment.
