A first session with me will be laid back. I will ask questions to make sure that I have a good understanding of your history and the events that have brought you to therapy. I will take time to answer any questions you may have regarding therapy. Above all, I want to get to know you and what is important to you.
You will know you are making progress in therapy because you will be able to see the changes you want to see. I will be sure to point out ways that I see you changing, in those times when you can't see them yourself. I will encourage you to take the steps which will bring about the change which will lead to your success.
I believe therapy is about the person setting in front of me. I will follow your lead about discussing what is important to you. I will ask questions which will help you to find the answers you are looking for but always be conscious of that you know yourself the best and you are the expert on you.

Premarital counseling is a specialized form of therapy that helps prepare couples for marriage. Although it is helpful for struggling couples, it may be useful for anyone looking to build a stronger foundation moving into marriage. Couples may explore considerations around healthy communication, merging families, where to live, children, occupation, finances, maintaining a sense of self, supporting one another, and the wedding itself.
