Premarital Counseling at The Wellness Counseling Center

Premarital Counseling

Insightful. Reliable. Effective.

Both In-Person and Online Sessions Available

If you’re considering marriage and would like to build a strong, committed relationship or if your wedding officiant requires premarital counseling, we can help. Three of our therapists, Sheila Mull, Beth McCain and Bea Germinario are all certified in Prepare and Enrich; a program that focuses on helping couples have safe conversations about their relationship strengths as well as opportunities for growth. Even in the healthiest relationships, pre-marital, and even pre-engagement counseling, can help you establish clear communication patterns and avoid misunderstandings.

Even in the healthiest relationships, pre-marital, and even pre-engagement counseling, can help you establish clear communication patterns and avoid misunderstandings.

We live in a fast paced, complex world where even the best, well-intentioned conversations can get misinterpreted. When we misunderstand each other and things go south, it’s easy to blame our partners and think they don’t care.

Typically, the Prepare and Enrich premarital program can be competed in 4-6 weekly sessions but if time is a factor, you might consider a 1-Day Premarital Intensive. If you want more information about Premarital counseling, our Client Support team (704-319-5593) can answer your questions and help you schedule an appointment.

Identify and create new communication patterns.

Misaligned communication patterns make it hard to uncover the real issues and be candid with each other. At Wellness, intimate partners often discover how good it feels to develop a deeper understanding of each other plus they learn to support each other…. which is why resolving communication issues before marriage is a great plan.

Wellness’ personalized premarital counseling program puts you on a path of life-long growth and relationship satisfaction. It’s important to note that Premarital Counseling is known to reduce the likelihood of divorce by as much as 30%.

Our personalized program is an investment in your future especially if you’re trying to strengthen your relationship bond and build a solid foundation for the future. You and your partner may also be good candidates for pre-marriage counseling if you are recently engaged and have issues you would like to resolve before they become damaging to your relationship.
