“My fiancé and I came across Rev Dawn as we were searching for pre marital counseling services and how lucky we were to find her!! She facilitated some difficult conversations, gave us exercises to improve our communication, and gave us hope that we would have a successful marriage despite our differences.”— Brandey H., Yelp Review, Alhambra, CA
Premarital counseling is a time and cost-effective way to ensure a solid foundation for your relationship, even for couples who have been together a long time, and who feel they are strong communicators. In just a handful of sessions, couples almost invariably share they have found relief, deepened connection, and specific tools for handling challenges. And couples who undergo premarital counseling have been proven significantly statistically less likely to divorce. My focus in all sessions is always on providing a safe, neutral space, in which I ask a lot of questions, and may help offer perspective. I also have some very specific tools I have found useful for helping couples to hear one another out when things do get challenging, and to enable you to create strong patterns and rituals to ensure your relationship is always a priority. We discuss all the basics: communication, conflict resolution, spirituality (if applicable), sex, finances, and family- and spend as much or as little time as you need in each area.
Premarital counseling sessions are offered from anywhere by Skype or Zoom at $160/hr. In-person sessions are occasionally available at a premium in both Atlanta, GA and Pasadena, CA. Most couples cover all basics in 4-6 sessions.
