Do You Offer Pre-Marriage Counseling?  

We appreciate that before walking down the aisle, you want to ensure you have a strong base to conquer any of life’s stressors and issues head-on. We work with couples who are planning to get married at some point and want to work towards feeling strong within this next step of their life. Many who seek out couples counseling or pre-marital counseling also want to discuss expectations around how the relationship will function, what will happen during disagreements, and also how to effectively parent if and when that is part of a couple’s plan.


At Modern Intimacy, our therapists are experienced and qualified to help couples prepare for this exciting season of life and feel secure with each other as they make a major transition together.
