A lot of thought and planning goes into a wedding: Sites, themes, catering, the dress…

The list can go on and on, and frankly be a big source of anxiety and stress. You’re putting a lot of time and effort into making sure that your wedding day is everything you want it to be.

Or, maybe you’re chucking it all and eloping.

Either way, the wedding looms large in your mind, but what about the marriage?

Newly married couples face many challenges in their first year together: Who is charge of the finances? What are my roles in this new family? Do we have kids now or focus on our careers? How do we have a fight that results in us feeling closer, rather than estranged?

We like to imagine our happily ever after, but the reality is that making a relationship last a lifetime takes a lot of hard work, dedication, and a set of skills that often don’t come naturally.

That’s where we come in.

Now is the perfect time to begin building the communication skills, trust and understanding that will create a satisfying relationship, and help it last a lifetime. Working with one of our trained marriage counselors, you will identify the areas of strength and assess the opportunities for growth in your relationship. Working together, you will develop the practices needed for lasting joy and intimacy.
