Marriage & Family Therapist - LMFT
I am a premarital educator and relationship coach, and utilize the PREPARE/ENRICH assessment and curriculum for dating, engaged, married, and same sex couples. I am LGBTQ-friendly and am not religiously affiliated.
PREPARE/ENRICH is one of the most popular premarital counseling assessment tools, and has been in use since 1977. It consists of a customized, strengths-oriented assessment and complementary skill-building exercises. It measures a couple’s strengths and growth areas in 12 categories to gain insights into relationship dynamics, stress, personality, and family systems.
Topics covered include personal stress, communication, conflict resolution, partner style and habits, financial management, leisure activities, sexual expectations, family and friends, relationship roles, spiritual beliefs, marriage expectations, and parenting expectations.
To ensure that we are a good fit, I offer a 30-minute complimentary consultation to answer questions and make sure PREPARE/ENRICH meets your goals. For engaged couples, completion of PREPARE/ENRICH qualifies you to save $75 off your marriage license fee through the State of Minnesota.
My office is dog-friendly, and I invite my clients to bring their well-behaved four-legged family member(s). I provide a dog bed and treats 🙂
