As a trained FOCCUS Facilitator experienced in working with couples from a variety of relationship backgrounds, Kristin is equipped to help you grow a vibrant relationship as you prepare for and move beyond your special day. Using the FOCCUS relationship inventory, she will guide you and your fiance' through a process of understanding areas of strength and needed growth in your relationship. Marriage prep (i.e. premarital therapy) typically consists of 4 to 6 sessions and includes learning skills that are proven to make love last. These skills, developed by The Gottman Institute, are based on over forty years of couples research, and identify the differences between the "Masters of Relationships" and the "Disasters of Relationships."
*"Marriage" Prep is not limited to engaged couples, but can also be helpful for couples who are considering engagement or are pursuing a formalized commitment.
A Note for Pastors
Kristin has developed a marital preparation curriculum and has utilized this in developing partnerships with area churches to enhance the support that engaged couples receive as they prepare for marriage. If you are clergy or a church leader and interested in exploring the aspects and benefits of partnership, contact Kristin to learn more.
