Entering into a relationship and getting married can be the biggest decision of your life. How do you know if the qualities and personality of your potential spouse are the ones that will lead to a lifetime commitment?
Premarital counseling offers a safe place where you can see how you interact and function as a couple before your big day. Getting to really know each other can lead to a stable and “aware” marriage or relationship that will weather the pressures of day-to-day living. Studies show that most couples who begin counseling before they are married have a much better chance of staying together.
In a warm and supportive environment, PARC’s experienced, licensed and certified therapists work with both heterosexual and LGBT couples to help you build the foundation for a trusting and fulfilling union with the person you love.
