It’s easy to get swept away with the details of wedding planning. Between the endless choices for invitations, bridesmaid dresses, flowers, table settings—the last thing on your mind is counseling with your future husband.

But hear me out.

Counseling should be a top priority.

Here’s why.

It’s exciting to head on a life journey with your future husband but you probably wouldn’t get in the car for a drive to an unfamiliar destination without your trusty navigation system. The same goes for marriage. A roadmap helps you navigate through the rough areas that inevitably come with marriage such as issues related to communication, money, anger, and intimacy.

Why set yourself up to become another statistic? More than 50% of US marriages fail, but that doesn’t mean you have to be one of them. Research shows that couples who invest in counseling reduce their risk of divorce by 70%.





As a licensed professional marriage counselor with two decades of clinical experience, I’ve worked with hundreds of couples just like you. I have also trained military couples using the Prevention and Relationship Enhancement Program (PREP), a scientifically-based method which the Federal Government approved as the best premarital training program.

A successful relationship takes work and you want to have a first aid kit at your convenience not necessarily because you are going to use it today, but you always want to be prepared.

E-course for Couples

After years of helping clients, I recognize that there are many people who crave healthier relationships but are uncomfortable going to premarital counseling or simply cannot go to a therapist’s office because of travel, scheduling or financial issues. To serve them, I designed a premarital program that can be used remotely at any time.

This user-friendly E-course Premarital Program, The Ultimate Relationship Resolution Program, transforms relationships through a combination of psycho-education, proactive skills and proven techniques. From the comfort of their home, car or while out exercising, couples use the program to make immediate and beneficial changes in their relationships. Through this self-help premarital program, individuals and couples learn how to effectively navigate the five most common issues that arise in relationships: communication, anger, money, physical and emotional intimacy.
