Marriage Counseling

Have you ever heard "It takes two to tango?"

I begin marriage counseling with completing an individual assessment one spouse at a time. The assessment is a 90 minute interview where I will learn about each one of you to then determine the best course of action.  Both spouses need to agree to want to be in counseling. If there are addictions involved, those issues need to be addressed first. If infidelity is an issue, that other relationship(s) needs to stop before starting counseling. My success rate in marriage counseling is very good, if both are willing to change. Putting God first, then your spouse, then the children, then your extended family and job after that.  If you are truly ready to work on your marriage,  then I invite you each to request an appointment with me to begin the journey. Remember you each need to request an appointment on your own first. 

Pre-Marriage Counseling

Congratulations on becoming engaged!

Perhaps during your marriage preparation sessions with your host couple or priest, there have been some areas of concern that would benefit from a few sessions with a professional counselor. Common areas to discuss for couples getting married are: Communication, Conflict Resolution, Family of Origin, Intimacy, Finances, NFP, Religion, and Raising the children Catholic, to name just a few. 

Other Christian faiths are welcome for this special time in your lives. RGC celebrates and is respectful of our common beliefs in the Trinity - Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Insurance may or may not cover your sessions. 

Marriage Boot Camp

Today's married couples are busier than ever, and scheduling appointments to fit into your already busy schedule can be difficult. Or perhaps you would like to "dig deep" with a weekend with your spouse and a therapist with no distractions.

What to expect? Once each spouse has had an individual assessment for the therapist to determine the plan of treatment, then the boot camp will be designed specifically for you two. The weekend will start Friday evening and end Sunday evening at a a retreat center.

Rates will vary depending on the needs. Meals, spiritual direction, confession, and individual and marriage counseling will all be included in one rate. This service is not covered under insurance. This is a self pay service.

Prayer in Defense of Marriage

God our Father, we give you thanks for the gift of marriage: the bond of life and love, and the font of the family.

The love of husband and wife enriches your Church with children, fills the world with a multitude of spiritual fruitfulness and service, and is the sign of the love of your Son, Jesus Christ, for his Church.

The grace of Jesus flowed forth at Cana at the request of the Blessed Mother. May your Son, through the intercession of Mary, pour out upon us a new measure of the Gifts of the Holy Spirit as we join with all people of good will to promote and protect the unique beauty of marriage.

May your Holy Spirit enlighten our society to treasure the heroic love of husband and wife, and guide our leaders to sustain and protect the singular place of mothers and fathers in the lives of their children.

Father, we ask that our prayers be joined to those of the Virgin Mary, that your Word may transform our service so as to safeguard the incomparable splendor of marriage. We ask all these things through Christ our Lord,
Amen.

Saints Joachim and Anne, pray for us.
