The Tie the Knot Workshop is a premarital workshop designed for newly engaged (or even newlywed) couples. This workshop will help couples prepare to take their relationship to a new step, and equip them for the joys and challenges of becoming a committed partnership!

Join us in this exciting evening where an experienced, supportive therapist will lead valuable conversation around common couple-focused topics.

The Tie the Knot Workshop, using the PREPARE/ENRICH program and the Gottman Method therapy model, will help couples:

  • Identify strength and growth areas
  • Explore personality traits
  • Strengthen communication skills
  • Resolve conflicts and reduce stress
  • Compare family backgrounds
  • Comfortably discuss financial issues
  • Establish personal, couple, and family goals
  • Learn ways to keep your relationship strong

As a participant in the workshop, you will benefit from discussion on these topics and on ways to build a closer, more successful, relationship. You will also have the option to complete the online assessment from Prepare/Enrich, for an additional $35 (paid directly to the Prepare/Enrich corporation at time of assessment). With this, the therapist will give you your printed results, which are great points to use in understanding your relationship’s strengths and weaknesses. Couples will also get a brief consultation with the therapist to further review their assessment results and talk about goals for the future. Even if you choose not to do the extra assessment, you will leave this workshop with a variety of handouts, articles, and other resources to strengthen your relationship and prepare for marriage!

Additional one-on-one sessions are suggested to continue using the PREPARE/ENRICH program, especially for followup with the results if you complete the assessment. The workshop will provide a great starting point for further discussion and growth!

If the group format isn’t for you, or the date of this workshop doesn’t work, consider contacting us for individual sessions with Kate to do pre-marital counseling. The program and the tenets of this workshop can all be incorporated into traditional, couples counseling. The PREPARE/ENRICH program was actually created for individual use ideally, but can be used in many formats. Please contact our Intake Department at 630.428.7890 x 320 to set up individual sessions with Kate. Insurance will be accepted for these individual sessions.
