Focus on your marriage, not just on the wedding.
While I do not require pre-marital counseling for the couples I marry, I HIGHLY encourage it. Some couples approach me to work on current challenges, but most just want a clean bill of health and new techniques for the toolbox to keep the relationship strong as they grow and mature.
Have you shared your expectations of your relationship? Are there questions that may have been swirling around since you started dating that you’ve yet to ask? More importantly, are you prepared for the day AFTER your wedding? Even couples that have been together for years feel the chance to speak openly and honestly about how you envision the future is invaluable as you commit to a life together.
Pre-marital counseling sessions are secular in nature and focus on the 9 main causes of divorce in America. We take the necessary time to explore the issues that affect your relationship most. These sessions can either be done in-person at my home office in Washington Heights, down in the FiDi at my co-working space or online through video chat anywhere in the world.
NEW FOR 2018: I created a curriculum for pre-marital counseling in a GROUP WORKSHOP format. Want to prep for your marriage on two consecutive Sundays? I am offering a discounted rate to 5 NYC-based couples for the first workshop in March.
Sundays, March 25th and April 1st
$550/couple, including lunch both days
Discussing The Big Issues is not only encouraged, it’s imperative. I make it super easy.
Individual sessions are $175, with discounted packages for five and seven sessions.
“Omg I love Hope! She was a blessing to my husband and I. She provided us with premarital counseling and was kind, interpersonal and made us feel at ease. We learned so much about each other and ourselves while meeting with Hope. I know she only provides premarital counseling but I would recommend her for any type of counseling! Thank you so much Hope, you are the absolute best!” — N’keya & Pedeche, Brooklyn, NY
