Our office offers premarital counseling by registered Prepare/Enrich facilitators, Elizabeth Earnshaw, LMFT and Deirdre Cosgrove, LMFT. Prepare/Enrich is a well researched, concise, and helpful premarital counseling program. While going through the Prepare/Enrich program you will take an assessment which provides a detailed report of your strengths and growth areas. At the beginning of premarital counseling you will also receive a workbook which your facilitator will support you in completing together. By the end of the program you will have a better understanding of your relationship and what you can do to improve or maintain your bond.
PREPARE/ENRICH leads the way in helping couples explore and strengthen their relationships. The main component of the program is an online survey you each complete in about 30-45 minutes.
PREPARE/ENRICH is not just any survey. The items you respond to are based on research and are intended to help you identify the unique strengths and potential growth areas of your premarital or married relationship. Built on a solid research foundation, PREPARE/ENRICH has been improved and refined over the years to become one of the best, most effective, easy-to-use relationship assessment tools available.
