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."

Frequently Asked Questions

What can we expect from each pre-marital session?

The initial session will be us getting started by exploring your relationship story, highlighting your strengths, reviewing any pre-marital assessment you completed, and collaborating on future topic areas that we will dive deeper into as we move forward. Each topic area session will focus on one area of your relationship - including discussion, techniques, activity together in session, and possibly homework assigned.
