No matter how deep your love is there always seems to be some areas where you disagree

You are two individuals with your own ways of doing things. Once you marry these differences can become stumbling blocks. It is both wise and possible to address and resolve these differences ahead of time.

PreMarital Counseling is a safe, neutral place to solidify your strengths, examine your differences and discover solutions

I will listen to each of you and help you with the pillars of a successful relationship. While there is no insurance policy for relationships it is true that PreMarital Counseling is the closest thing that I've seen to an emotional guarantee.

Who benefits from PreMarital Counseling?

It doesn't matter what your age or relationship history is; before you engage, marry, move in or take that next big step it can be extremely helpful for the future of your relationship to get a few sessions of PreMarital Counseling together.

Questions to think about before you marry

What are the pillars of a successful relationship? Besides love, what habits and history do you bring to your relationship? Have you been clear about your expectations? What exactly do you need and how do you get your partner to understand you?
