Premarital Counseling In Chicago

Entering a new relationship is often filled with excitement, passion, and adventure.

Partners begin to share their inner worlds with one another, freely and deeply.

  As the relationship shifts from the initial bonding stage filled with long text exchanges, late night conversations, passion, romance and laughter, partners begin to experience challenges 

in navigating tension, conflict, 

and ineffective communication. 

Whether you’re moving in together, thinking of “popping the question,” are engaged and going to marry, or want to improve the quality of your relationship, our therapists can provide the support to strengthen and deepen your connection

Couples who engaged in premarital counseling prior to marriage reported 

a 30% higher marital success rate.


Premarital counseling can be a worthwhile 

investment as you and your partner embark on the next chapter of your relationship.
