Getting married is an exciting and passion-filled time; however, one thing couples frequently overlook in their preparations for a lifetime together is premarital counseling. Katie helps clients plan for the inevitable challenges that marriage presents. You’ll receive helpful insight into:
How to disagree
Tips for blended families
Dealing with the in-laws
“Most people spend zero dollars on preparing and learning how to have a lifetime relationship,” Katie says. “This is one of the most costly relational and financial mistakes that a couple can make. Taking the time to learn how to be married and to set goals can be a game-changer.”
While premarital counseling lays the foundation for a fulfilling marriage, Katie also helps couples maintain a healthy marriage.
Marriage counseling teaches you and your spouse:
Tips for conflict resolution
Identifying and communicating an individual’s personal needs
“What couples learn in marriage counseling can change most marriages, but it does require work. And work requires energy,” Katie says.

Are you struggling to set or achieve professional goals?
