Premarital Counseling

Getting married is one of the biggest events in one’s life; it is not a commitment to be taken lightly. Refresh Therapy seeks to support couples entering into marriage by teaching the essential components for a successful partnership.

As couples counselors, we have gained great insight into how a marriage works, how people can stay together and thrive in a happy, long-lasting relationship. What sets our premarital counseling apart is the advice and suggestions we provide are based on your actual relationship and communication dynamics—our services are tailored to who YOU are as individuals, and what your relationship needs to thrive.

Areas covered in premarital counseling can vary, but tend to include:

  • Finances
  • Communication styles
  • Expectations
  • Roles in marriage
  • Sex and intimacy
  • Children and parenting
  • Conflict resolution

Premarital counseling is often experienced as an exciting event on the road to getting married. In a busy, and sometimes stressful, time of wedding planning, you get to slow down and just have it be about the two of you. You will examine, with the help of your therapist, what qualities you possess that make you an excellent match, as well as areas of difference that you will need to watch out for as time goes by. Premarital counseling typically lasts 2–4 sessions and is adjusted accordingly, based on depth of topics.
