Premarital & Marriage Counseling
Premarital and Marriage Counseling by Bill
WARNING – This is not your typical premarital (or marital) counseling! It’s not about a focus on problems, but on discovery, learning, and understanding that will help you to build a thriving and flourishing life together. This is the kind of counseling that can not only help you with the basics of communication, understanding, goal setting, finances etc., but also helping you to create a life together that you would love.
Take an online survey before our session that will help you identify your unique strengths and potential growth areas. And then we’ll meet together to talk about practical skills for your relationship.
PREPARE/ENRICH will help you:
- Identify strength and growth areas
- Explore personality traits
- Strengthen communication skills
- Resolve conflicts and reduce stress
- Compare family backgrounds
- Comfortably discuss financial issues
- Establish personal, couple, and family goals
Here’s a menu of additional sessions to choose from – a smorgasbord! Create your own course for learning that we can include in the basic sessions depending on your interest and desire.
The ENNEAGRAM: How to really know one another.
You may think you already know, but discover who you really are and who your partner really is with this simple cost effective online inventory. You’ll be amazed at how this tool helps you to really know and understand one another in all of your uniqueness.
The FIVE LOVE LANGUAGES How to really love one another.
Discover how to make life wonderful for each other by learning about your own and each others love languages.
The HONEYMOON EFFECT: How to make your love last.
Discover how to make your love last by understanding that there are 4 of you in marriage and how to “do” great communication.
LIVE A LIFE YOU’D LOVE: How to create together a life that you would love.
Discover who you are, why you are here and how to create an incredible, wonderful, adventurous life together. This isn’t a religious course, but it is spiritual and incredibly practical and “requires” an openness to exploring spiritual truths about how life works that you may not have considered before Exploring the secrets many people wish they knew in order to live the magic of life.
My fee is usually $90 for a 90 minute couples or individual session. I’m willing to meet with you for only 1 session if that’s all you want. However, consider 3-5 sessions for a great foundation. You’re investing so much money in your wedding day – but don’t forget about putting your money where it really matters – in your marriage – your relationship that matters most and can last a lifetime. And if you’re already married, all you need are some reminders for a “tune up” for your marriage.
“On the Road” Counseling
I can bring my counseling “on the road”! I’d be glad to meet with both of you in your home or at a local coffee shop or restaurant etc. to make it more convenient for you.
