Couples Coaching

You said YES...now what?

Wedding planning can bring out the best and unfortunately sometimes the worst in couples.  It is a time of high feelings and strong emotions and it is most important that the two of you stay on the same page throughout your entire engagement.


Here is where I would step in. I have created a program for couples which includes different assessments and discussion topics.  The goal of my program is to help you build a stronger and more healthy relationship prior to your marriage.


The difference between my program and other premarital counseling programs is that my sessions do not focus primarily on relationship issues. I like to focus on coaching couples so that they can have the best base of fundamental relationship skills to continue the success of their relationship, even after their BIG day!!!
