Premarital Counseling!

Mini intro course $225

full encounter course $395


I am a trained facilitator for the Prepare Enrich Program and I offer a choice of options for premarital preparation that is part of an established course of pastoral care counseling.

PREPARE/ENRICH is a customized couple assessment that identifies a couple's strength and growth areas. It is one of the most widely used programs for premarital counseling and premarital education. It is also used for marriage counseling, marriage enrichment, and couples considering engagement. Based on your assessment results, I provide 4-8 feedback sessions in which I facilitate discussion and understanding of your results, and assist in demonstrating proven relationship skills.


There are several goals of the PREPARE/ENRICH Program. In order to achieve these goals there are exercises designed to help couples improve their relationship skills. The program helps couples:


Explore Strength and Growth Areas

Strengthen Communication Skills

Identify and Manage Major Stressors

Resolve Conflict using the Ten Step Model  

Develop a More Balanced Relationship

Explore Family of Origin Issues

Discuss Financial Planning and Budgeting

Establish Personal, Couple and Family Goals

Understand and Appreciate Personality Differences

Navigate your relationship with more self-awareness,

shared perspective and mutual understanding...

For some couples a custom ceremony is not a necessary element of their wedding day. They may wish to spend their time and financial resources on other aspects of their celebration.  A simple ceremony can still be personalized with the couple's selections of readings and vows.  We will work with you to create a beautiful ceremony that speaks in your choice of language and tone.
