Getting married can be such an exciting and stressful time in your life. It can be both wonderful and exhausting. The to-do lists seem endless and what was exciting starts to feel like a roller coaster. Some couples add Premarital Counseling or Premarital Support services to help navigate some upcoming life transitions and decisions. The purpose of premarital counseling is to provide you with a foundation of skill building to help lay the groundwork for future problems you may encounter. While the idea of arranging Premarital Counseling can cause some anxiety in couples ideally it is meant to be a safe place to strategize any potential needs that arise and celebrate your strengths as a couple. Working with a counselor can help you develop skills which you can use lifelong in your marriage!
