Premarital Preparation

Marriage preparation and relationship coaching

Why should a couple do premarital preparation?

Studies have shown that couples who have attended premarital counseling are more likely to work through difficult times in their relationship and find normal married life to be more enjoyable.

What is the cost for premarital preparation?

Trained professional counseling is valued between $75 - $120/ hr. We meet with couples for a minimum of four, two-hour sessions. If a couple can contribute beyond the suggested donation it helps to defray the cost for those in need.
