PREMARITAL COUNSELING TESTIMONIALS
PREMARITAL COUNSELING TESTIMONIALS
"I think every couple should budget money for premarital counseling and Adrienne is one of the best! She only focused on issues that related to my husband and me. She made us look at our relationship on a deeper level but also gave us very helpful tools to be a better couple. Again, the tools were not cookie cutter, but applied directly to us.
Adrienne was fun and very easy to talk to. She is fair, open-minded, and understanding. Both my husband and I loved her, and would highly recommend her premarital counseling packages to any couple! If it's not already in your wedding budget, cut something else out!"
"My wife and I have known Adrienne for nearly two years, and she has been the wonderful 3rd party set of ears that EVERY couple should meet with at least a few times. The thing that's quite insightful about her is the fact that she listens and THEN speaks. She challenges and motivates. She's funny, professional, and timely. We highly recommend her for premarital counseling, as she was a fantastic asset to our pre-wedding + post-wedding life!"
"My husband and I are so happy we made the choice to meet with Adrienne for premarital counseling prior to getting married. My husband wasn't too into the idea of meeting with a relationship counselor, and was really just doing it to make me happy. After our first session, he had completely changed his mind!
Adrienne was so easy to talk to. She was straight-forward and honest, and really helped us learn more about one another. We both felt so comfortable opening up to her, which made the premarital counseling process so much more productive. We learned how to communicate better and there are lessons we learned that we are still using. We will absolutely use Adrienne again in the future!"
At our first premarital counseling session, it's my goal to make you as comfortable as possible. It's perfectly normal to be nervous, excited, or both, and also a little unsure about how things might unfold.
I want you to feel prepared, so our first session is really about me getting to know as much about your relationship as possible. We'll start with how you met, and work our way forward to the present moment. I'll ask you to share your strengths, as well as areas for improvement. I love to hear about your engagement, as well as your upcoming wedding, and how you're both dealing with the stress of wedding planning.
Most importantly, we will spend some time talking about your specific goals for premarital counseling, and make a plan for what topics are the most important to discuss as they pertain to YOUR relationship. I'll touch base on topics such as Communication, Conflict Resolution, Finances, Sex & Intimacy, Children, Marriage Goals & Expectations, and your Families. From there, we will create goals for our future sessions, so that you receive a fully customized experience.
When you work with me, you get customized 1-on-1 support (no cookie cutter counseling, here), the expertise and knowledge of a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who has worked with over 1,000 couples, and a relationship for the future if and when you need me.
The best part of my job is being there for you through the years, for ups & downs, babies, puppies, home purchases, personal development, relationship changes, etc. I love being your go-to person when you need a little help.
I love working with couples who value the investment in their future, and put their relationship and upcoming marriage first. Premarital counseling is a commitment, and so is marriage. Therefore, I expect you to work for the relationship you desire, do your homework, discuss our conversations in-between sessions, and come prepared to learn, laugh, and have some fun!
I look forward to meeting you, and helping you create the beautiful, successful marriage you deserve!
