For Couples Entering Marriage or Commitment
It's common that when entering marriage or commitment, couples are well aware of their strengths as a couple and dimly aware of their challenges, but hopeful these challenges will improve or go away on their own. I use Prepare/Enrich, an assessment tool created out of the leading couples therapy modalities, including Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy. It is customizable to your unique circumstances (married before, have children, etc).
Prepare/Enrich helps you see your relationship's strengths and challenges across many areas such as communication, finances, and intimacy. It acts as a springboard for discussion in our counseling sessions, and offers many concrete tools to help you approach topics and talk to each other in new ways. This method tends to be an eye-opening, confidence building experience. Best of all, Prepare/Enrich has been found to reduce the rate of divorce by 30%.
