The dynamics of healthy marriage and famlies have changed a lot in the last few decades. There was a time when a couple got married, the assumption was that the couple would remain married until one of the spouses died. This assumption tended to be more accurate than inaccurate. Today many couples approach marriage with an awareness of the high divorce rate. At the same time, most couples begin marriage with a significant amount of relationship experience with their marital partner. According to John and Julie Gottman, developers of The Gottman Method to couples counseling, the biggest predictor of divorce is the inability of a partner to accept the influence of the other partner.
At Complete Wellness, we specialize in working with couples that already have significant barriers to a successful marriage which are apparent from the beginning. In these cases, traditional pre-marital counseling may not be enough for what the couple needs to build a health life together.
The pre-marital couple will be engaged in a more rigorous couples counseling protocol to ensure that the launch of their life together is successful and prepares them for a strong relationship together.
Pre-marital counseling sessions are not covered by insurance.
All sessions must be paid for out of pocket.
