Premarital Counseling

Laying a lasting foundation for your marriage

A shared adventure

It’s exciting and perhaps more than a little terrifying to consider getting married. Is being “in love” enough? Can we be sure we will make it when we see so many other marriages ending in divorce.
Marriage is one of life’s great adventures. But it comes with many risks and unknowns that will leave you forever changed. And much more will be required of you than a never ending date with your best friend.

Not for the faint of heart

Marriage is not for the faint of heart. And there’s much wisdom in laying a solid foundation before the hard days come. This allows you to weather the storms together with greater ease.
Premarital counseling is an opportunity for you to equip  yourselves for the journey ahead. It doesn’t eliminate the challenges of married life; it simply gives you the tools to better navigate them and grow stronger as you make your way to the other side.

What’s included

The premarital package includes  a free PREPARE relationship assessment and six full-length sessions covering topics such as communication and conflict resolution, money, sex, commitment, and exploring the very purpose and mission of your marriage – Why has God bought the two of you together? Additionally, you receive a free followup session after the wedding.
At the end of the initial six sessions, you will also receive a certificate of completion that allows you to get a discounted marriage license in the state of Georgia.

Premarital Package

The premarital package focuses mostly on education and skill building. It’s most appropriate for first-time marriages or for couples who don’t require the deep and intense dive of traditional therapy.




Couple’s Counseling

Traditional couple’s counseling allows for more freedom to address and treat particular problem areas before marriage. While we can address many of the same topic areas, we can also do the more intense work of therapy to get you started on the right track.
