Premarital Counseling

Premarital counseling is a type of therapy that helps couples prepare for marriage. Seeing a mental health professional before you enter into a marriage can be very beneficial and help you and your partner work through any major differences and set reasonable and healthy expectations for your relationship. Premarital counseling can also help you develop strategies to improve your overall happiness and communication or target a specific conflict like anger, infidelity, money, sex, or household duties
