This option combines both individual sessions and the workshop. It is the most comprehensive of our marriage preparation options, and couples consistently tell us they greatly benefit from the two experiences.

When you have registered and paid for the couple sessions plus workshop, your therapist (who is certified in using the Prepare/Enrich inventory) will contact you to schedule your four individual sessions and provide a password for you both to go online and answer the Prepare/Enrich pre-marriage inventory questions. Your therapist will use the information provided by the Prepare/Enrich inventory to tailor your sessions.

This workshop will meet virtually for 3 sessions and utilize breakout rooms for smaller group discussions:

  • March 15 and 16: Friday from 5:30 pm-8 pm and Saturday from 9 am-11:30 am and 1 pm-3 pm.
  • May 17 and 18: Friday from 5:30 pm-8 pm and Saturday from 9 am-11:30 am and 1 pm-3 pm.
  • September 6 and 7: Friday from 5:30 pm-8 pm and Saturday from 9 am-11:30 am and 1 pm-3 pm.
  • November 1 and 2: Friday from 5:30 pm-8 pm and Saturday from 9 am-11:30 am and 1 pm-3 pm.

Couples must attend each session. 

We offer both the workshop and the three private sessions at the discounted cost of $445. There is an additional $35 cost for the inventory that you pay directly to Prepare/Enrich.
