Premarital counseling is available to couples who want to learn certain skills that will enhance their relationship. It also will help couples pinpoint specific areas of conflict they may potentially encounter. Designed for couples that are contemplating marriage or other forms of commitment, Dr. Eli has designed an assessment to address important areas that couples should consider as they contemplate a more formalized commitment. Couples will explore the following growth areas:
 
 
  • Expectations for the relationship for the here and now and future
  • Expectations for family-of-origin involvement
  • Identify current communication barriers and constraints
  • Exploring role models for healthy relationships
  • Identify boundaries in the relationship and fostering trust
  • Determine healthy self-care and individual activities for each person in the relationship
  • Financial spending styles and expectations.
  • Household responsibilities, including finances, house chores, etc.
  • Assess the role of friends and other support systems
  • Examine spiritual values and finding common ground
  • Determine the role of sex in the relationship and how to increase sexual satisfaction
  • Assess parenting beliefs and whether or not to have children
