Real Connections Counseling offers pre-marital counseling to help couples prepare for a rewarding and fulfilling marriage. Our co-therapists will guide you through a 15-page assessment questionnaire and online assessment to identify potential rough spots in your relationship. With our foundational relationship-building skills, we will help you develop essential relational skills for dealing with conflict, communication, and trust – the top issues we see in our practice.
Our program is designed to be fun and stimulating, but also challenging. You may find it scary at times as your conversations and relationship move into uncharted waters, but rest assured that it will strengthen your resolve to be a "together-or-not-at-all" couple.
Trust us, the assessment has led to the kind of growth that truly builds relational health. Let us help you create a healthy marriage that will stand the test of time.
One session before the class to get to know you and your desired learning and needs and one session after the group class to work on anything that came up during the class or to enhance that information. If you choose our recommended standard option of four sessions, the remaining two session topics can be determined by you. The purpose of these four sessions is to address any personal concerns or issues you would like to discuss as a couple.
Usually offered on a Saturday as a four-hour educational event for two to five couples where we cover general skills for a solid relationship foundation, like staying connected for the long term while exploring the enneagram and how it can help you understand your partner’s approach to communication, conflicts, handling life and stress. It’s a skill-building class with proven strategies for building healthy relationship boundaries, strong communication, and conflict resolution.
