Premarital counseling is a great way for couples to prepare for a long, happy life together.
Using the PREPARE/ENRICH program developed by Dr. David Olson, our team at Lindsey Hoskins & Associates can help you and your future spouse examine the strengths and challenges present in your relationship, and focus on expanding your relationship skills to work through difficult issues and prevent major problems from developing.
Through premarital counseling, you will:
- Learn communication and conflict resolution skills;
- Work through family of origin issues that may impact your relationship now or in the future;
- Discuss issues related to parenting future children, if relevant;
- Address financial planning and budgeting;
- Explore how your unique personalities fit together and how they impact your relationship;
- Focus on personal and family goals;
- And much more!
We offer a five-session PREPARE/ENRICH package that includes your online couple assessment and personality inventory, both of which give you deep and unique insight about yourself and your partner. Packages are completely customizable to fit time and budget constraints, and we are happy to work with you to create a package that suits your needs. Generally, we recommend that couples begin premarital counseling 6-12 months before their wedding date, and sessions are typically scheduled every other week. Each session in 90 minutes in length. Package prices range from $1150 to $1450, depending on which member of our team you choose to work with.
We are also thrilled to offer wedding officiant services in the state of Maryland and in the District of Columbia, which are available whether you complete premarital counseling with us or not. Please click here for more information about having Lindsey officiate your wedding ceremony.
