Most couples have only seen one marriage up close – their parents. Good or bad, the legacy from our parent’s relationship(s) leaves a map in our heads about intimacy. You may have limited understanding about what made it happy or what made it fail. Unexamined – we are destined to repeat history. Happiness takes work.
Pre-marital counseling helps you examine the map in your head and decide whether it will get you where you want to go as a couple. We’ve been doing pre-marital counseling for over 27 years to help couples start off right and end up happy. Our therapists have seen thousands of couples – we know what works and what doesn’t.
