Premarital Counseling Q & A

What is premarital counseling?

Premarital counseling involves services that help you and your partner build a healthy and satisfying marriage.

The marriage preparation program offered at Healthy Minds NYC can reinforce your strengths as a couple. The team of therapeutic specialists can also teach you how to overcome the unique challenges you face in your relationship.

We use a variety of relationship counseling methods, including psychotherapy, to help you work through any issues you have before you walk down the aisle and to build a solid foundation for a long-term relationship.

What happens during premarital counseling?

Our providers at Healthy Minds NYC use the Prepare/Enrich online relationship assessment to identify your relationship strengths and the areas where you can grow before tying the knot.

This assessment tool has been a leading resource for over 35 years and is instrumental in building a solid foundation between you and your partner.

Based on the results of your assessment, our team customizes a counseling plan that addresses important areas like:

  • Communication
  • Conflict management
  • Financial management
  • Sexual intimacy
  • Spiritual beliefs
  • Personal stress
  • Children and parenting
  • Personality and role differences

Our providers use a combination of tools, including assessments, education, workbook exercises, and other helpful resources to enhance all areas of your relationship before marriage.

How many premarital counseling sessions do we need?

Most premarital counseling plans include four 90-minute sessions or a one-time 90-minute session. Alternatively, we do offer premarital counseling through weekly 45-minute counseling sessions as well. You can expect to work privately with your relationship expert, who has extensive experience in marriage and family therapy, talking through any issues or questions you have about your relationship before you get married.

The Healthy Minds NYC team enjoys making the time dynamic and focusing on discussing the topics you’re most interested in. They can also accommodate the diversity of couples from all walks of life. If you have specific concerns about differences in cultural or religious backgrounds, the team will honor your needs.

When you complete your marriage counseling sessions, you receive a certificate of completion and the confidence that you’re ready for marriage.
