Once your first session is scheduled, you will complete a few new client forms online and an online pre-marital assessment.
I then do an in depth review of your responses so that we can gain momentum as soon as possible.
We start by meeting for two 80 minute couples sessions.
We will explore your pre-marital assessment, relationship story, and goals for your marriage!
We will then collaborate on choosing four topic areas for the remaining sessions.

"We went to Abby for pre-marital counseling and I highly recommend her! We really enjoyed the way she facilitated conversations between us and I feel like we're coming away with new communication skills. We're glad we worked with her."
