Pre-marital Counseling
Practice Description: Trying to find the right counselor or therapist during challenging times can be overwhelming. I will provide you with a comprehensive assessment of your situation and then help you understand your options and what to look for when choosing a counselor. I will then refer you to a licensed counselor/therapist in my referral network who has expertise in your problem area, is committed to helping you achieve the changes you want, and who will work with you as a partner; evaluating services with you regularly and making sure that what you are receiving is meeting your needs.

In addition to assessments and referrals, I now also provide ongoing counseling for individuals experiencing life transitions, and pre-marital counseling for couples that want to prepare for a long and happy life together.

In my ongoing work with clients I help individuals that are undergoing life transitions to conceptualizing alternative ways to create a happy and joyful life. Individuals working with me develop a personal vision of their ideal life, and then receive help in moving toward their vision. As a Certified Daring Way™ Facilitator-Candidate, I frequently use Dr. Brene´Brown’s renowned curriculums, The Daring Way™ and Rising Strong™ in my work with individuals, as well as with groups.

Pre-marital counseling is secular in nature and open to couples from any spiritual tradition or sexual orientation. Topics include defining roles and responsibilities, maintaining effective communication, and addressing the expectations of extended family, to name a few.
