Marin Premarital Counseling (Larkspur)

Getting hitched?  Congratulations!  My Marin premarital counseling and education is about empowering couples with the knowledge and tools for a strong relationshipMarin Premarital Counseling foundation and high level of emotional safety – two important aspects of successful marriages.  Many couples invest a lot of money in the wedding day itself.  I encourage you to consider the value of investing in the future of your marriage as well, whether it is counseling with a therapist, pastor, self-help book or other educational tool.

I offer a four session educational and interactive course comprised of the following sections:

  • Assessment and Communication Skill Building: Assess communication, relationship balance, emotional safety and family of origin – as well as teach active listening, conflict resolution and educate about problematic communication styles.
  • Relationship Logistics: Role expectations at home, work, chores, finances, spiritual beliefs, intimacy, etc.  How do each of you see your marriage working and are you in alignment?
  • Tune Up: Explore and discuss any problematic areas revealed in previous sessions.
  • Goal Setting and Review: Discuss relationship vision as well as personal and family goals. Review previous sessions.

If it appears as though there are deeper issues at hand that have the potential to negatively impact your marriage, more sessions may be required to receive the maximum benefit. I always work with you as efficiently as possible to complete the process – so you can move on to the really fun part…the wedding itself.

Save $$ If you pay for the four sessions up front, I offer a package deal for significant savings.  Ask me about my “4 Session Premarital Counseling Package.”

I was featured in Martha Stewart Weddings Magazines discussing how couples can defuse some wedding day sticky situations. ==>
