What happens during premarital counseling?

Premarital counseling is therapy for couples before they tie the knot. During these counseling sessions, couples can discuss essential aspects of a marriage, including financial planning, decision-making processes, family relationships, and much more. 

You and your partner may talk about if you want children or not and define other expectations for your marriage. All questions and topics are welcome, and there’s nothing off-limits. Usually, premarital therapists ask couples to explore specific issues, dig deep, and revisit previous impressions about marriage before they walk down the aisle.

Here are some common topics you and your partner may explore during premarital counseling in Federal Way:

  • Your Marriage Expectations and Values
  • How Your Past Impacts Your Future Together
  • Plans for Resolving Future Conflicts
  • Money Management and Finances
  • Avoiding Issues with Intimacy 
  • Fostering Healthy Communication
  • Having, or Not Having, Children

Whatever your therapy goals may be, we can discuss that in our sessions and create an individualized plan for you and your partner.
