Marriage Preparation Program

You are preparing for one of the most important relationships in your life.

Our Marriage Preparation Program will help you and your partner build a solid foundation for your future, focused on mutual understanding, respect and support. Together with our trained counselors, we will work with you to further strengthen your friendship, enhance your intimacy, develop empowering, healing patterns of communication and ultimately prepare you for a life of love, shared goals and values.  

In three private sessions with a therapist, you and your partner identify strengths, tackle issues specific to you, receive immediate feedback and resources, and ask questions. Your therapist will tailor these sessions to your needs through the FOCCUS pre-marriage inventory, a survey you each submit in advance.

happy-couple-1This option is an interactive experience for engaged couples. Because of the ability to tailor sessions, we highly recommend this option for couples whom this is not a first marriage, couples that have been living together for awhile, and couples who have already started their family.

Cost is $275 plus a $20 fee for the FOCCUS materials and scoring.

This option allows the couple to meet with other engaged couples in a group setting.  The workshop is facilitated by trained  therapists, providing a broad spectrum of experience. The workshop features presentations to the group and allows for each couple to work individually on exercises and activities designed to increase self-knowledge and knowledge of each other, and to build skills in Classcommunication and conflict resolution. This is a great start to those important conversations you will continue throughout your marriage. In addition to other necessary skills, the workshop also presents an understanding of marriage as covenant.

These workshops meet on Saturday and are $225 per couple.
