How Premarital Counseling Works

01) Get to know you.

Before premarital counseling, you’ll each complete an individual questionnaire from the Gottman Institute. You’ll get a shortened copy of the results, and the insights will help us start in the right place.

02) Review insights.

Next, we’ll dive into ways to make your relationship even stronger and tackle any topics you want to talk about. We’ll also give you some heads up on any trouble spots to watch out for based on your personalities and needs.

03) Give you tools.

Then, we’ll walk through specific concepts and tools you can use throughout your life to strengthen your marriage and stay connected—even as you navigate more complicated seasons.
