What are Premarital Conversations?
Premarital Conversations offer a supportive container for you to explore yourselves and your relationship in a fun, relaxed and collaborative process. With me as guide and facilitator, together you will develop a better understanding of your strengths and challenges – individually and jointly – discover emergent possibilities and discern opportunities for growth in relationship to yourself and with each other.
The Premarital Conversations package includes 3 hour-long sessions with homework exercises to complete on your own between sessions (don’t worry…not that kind of homework!). The sessions move from discussion of your relationship to exploring your feelings about the wedding to envisioning married life beyond the big day.

How do Premarital Conversations work?
Sessions are held in-person at my private office in Northampton, MA, or via FaceTime/Skype. The span between sessions depends on the total time frame we’re working within, ability to complete your homework exercises and both our scheduling needs.
The cost for Premarital Conversations is $225, or $75 per session. However, during the time I am working to fulfill my certification as a Psychosynthesis Practitioner, the total cost will be $105, or $35 per session. During my internship period, the couple gives me permission to discuss our sessions in confidentiality with my supervisor as part of completing my third-year training at The Synthesis Center.
Premarital Conversations are based upon my seminary education at The New Seminary including pastoral care, spiritual and premarital counseling, my Psychosynthesis training at The Synthesis Center, and my own personal experiences in professional marriage counseling using the Imago model developed by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D.
Premarital Conversations are not counseling or psychotherapy, nor is it an appropriate substitute for those struggling with deeper psychological issues or diagnosed mental health disorders. Click to read my Disclosures and Code of Ethics.
