Plan Beyond the Wedding Program

 

Personalized Premarital Counseling Package

Congratulations on falling in love! Finding someone that you enjoy life with and that you admire is worth a lot of celebration. Life and humans are complicated and we are not given a manual for relationships. The more we learn about ourselves, stay on the same page, build skills to stay a team when we navigate our differences or challenges, and grow our connection, the better we can keep the relationship we love. One way is making the time to plan beyond the wedding and focus on strengthening your relationship!

  • How do I know if you are the right fit for me/us?
    It is strange to be searching online for a therapist! Pre-marital counseling is an investment and so is your relationship. I typically work with clients who are longing for deep and satisfying relationships - with their partner and themselves. The clients I am the best therapist for are the ones that are wanting more for their relationships and willing to take a step back to observe their own patterns. I am most passionate about supporting couples who are navigating transitions - specifically into marriage. You can learn more about me here or read a few of my blogs. I also offer free 15 minute video consultations to answer any questions you might have about the process, my style, or to see what virtual sessions are like. You can schedule the consultation here. If at any point you or I think that another therapist may be a better fit for you due to expertise, training, or just general fit, I will check in with you and provide referrals.
  • How much does counseling cost?
    Premarital Package Plan Beyond the Wedding package (6 hours) = $750 Additional Premarital Sessions to Package (if scheduled before/at the end) 50 minute session = $125 80 minute session = $175 Anniversary/Newlywed Sessions 50 minute session = $150 80 minute session = $225 Your card will be charged through the secure client portal at the end of each session. I do not accept insurance (more information on other FAQ).
  • What is your typical availability?
    My weekly availability include evening and weekend options - Wednesday/Friday evenings and Saturdays. As a client, you will always have access to scheduling online through the client portal.
  • Do you accept insurance?
    No, I do not accept insurance. Your card will be charged in full at the end of each session. I can provide a receipt of services (superbill) as a out of network provider for you to submit to your insurance company. The superbill requires your information and a mental health diagnosis. I recommend reaching out to your insurance provider to understand your coverage. Some questions to ask your insurance carrier: - Do I have mental health benefits? - How much will be reimbursed for an out-of-network provider? - What type of therapy does it cover? (individual, couples, specific theory, etc) - What is my deductible? - How many sessions per calendar year does my plan cover? - Does it cover tele-therapy sessions?
  • What is online therapy (tele-therapy)?
    Tele-therapy is having sessions virtually via video chat. I only meet with clients using a secure system (Simple Practice), and can meet with any residents of Minnesota or Texas. It has been proven to be just as effective as in-person sessions and can have many convenient benefits as well! Trust me, you will get my personality and be just as engaged in the session than in my office! Enjoy the convenience of tele-therapy - Do not live near my office in Edina, MN or live in TX - Avoiding traffic - Scheduling your session during your lunch break - Feeling a bit under the weather/medical reasons ​ All you need - Computer/tablet with video camera & microphone - Internet access - Confidential/quiet space (not while driving) - Secure video link sent via email through HIPPA-compliant system (Simple Practice) Try it out with a free 15 minute video consultation to see if it would be a good fit for you!

Meet Abby

As a premarital counselor, my goal is to help couples build the foundation for a strong and healthy relationship. By exploring topics such as communication, conflict resolution, and expectations, couples can address potential challenges before they arise. My counseling sessions are designed to be collaborative, allowing couples to work together to develop the skills they need to create a lasting and fulfilling relationship.

"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."
