Marriage Preparation

For clergy, churches or individual couples, we can provide premarital preparation which includes both relational and Christian elements. We have therapists trained in Prepare and Enrich, Foccus and Couples Communication to assist in preparing couples for a lifetime together after their ceremony and honeymoon. We can design premarital programs to fit the needs of any church or couple.

PREPARE/ENRICH is a customized couple assessment completed online that identifies a couple’s strength and growth areas. It is one of the most widely used programs for premarital counseling and premarital education. It is also used for marriage counseling, marriage enrichment, and dating couples considering engagement. Based on a couple’s assessment results, a trained facilitator provides 4-8 feedback sessions in which the facilitator helps the couple discuss and understand their results as they are taught proven relationship skills.
