What does premarital counseling online include?
STEP ONE ($125): ONLINE RELATIONSHIP ASSESSMENT
Marriage preparation with me starts with a thorough assessment (Gottman Relationship Checkup) of your relationship, that covers the five key areas of a relationship:
Friendship and Intimacy
Trust and Commitment
STEP TWO: Results Session ($205)
Once the assessments are complete, you will schedule an 85-minute session with me to discuss the results of your completed assessments. During this session we will review the current status of your relationship and discuss in detail both your strengths and your challenges.
With premarital counseling online, you will get a thorough overview of your relationship and a clear picture of what is working, and what needs attention. We will identify the most vulnerable areas of your relationship and you will receive feedback about the seriousness of these vulnerabilities and what it will take to address them.
STEP THREE: Vision Homework (included in process)
Following the Results Session, you will be provided a vision exercise to take home. This exercise will guide you through an exploration of your expectations for your relationship, as well as how you wish for your relationship to support the person you are, the values you hold as important, and the feeling experience you wish to have on a day-to-day basis.
The vision exercise is a critical component that offers you a deeper understanding about how you think about the role of a relationship in your life, and what expectations you have about a long term relationship. This exercise is driven by the belief that:
The “right person” is the one with whom you can create “the right relationship” that allows and encourages you to be and feel the way you wish to be and feel in this life. ♥️
STEP FOUR: Strategy Session ($205)
This session will combine the results of your Gottman Checkup assessment and your Relationship Vision homework to provide you with insights, strategies and skills to practice in an effort to help you strengthen the areas of your relationship that put your future happiness at risk. Relationships are designed to add to our lives, not take away.
