Before You Say I Do

Many couples invest thousands in a one day celebration of their union, but neglect to prioritize setting the foundation for a strong marriage.

Here at DMG, we love celebrations - we've partnered with countless couples to plan them. However, we prioritize healthy marriages.

the process

Our intake process is a multi-part journey that allows us to understand your relationship dynamics and tailor the program to your specific needs.

 

Here's a breakdown of the intake sessions:

 1.  Pre-Assessment Joint Session ( 1 session 60-90 minutes): We start with a joint session where we discuss areas of focus, your relationship history, your decision to commit, adjustments, expectations, and conflict patterns. This session sets the foundation for our work together. 

2. Individual Sessions (for each partner): You and your partner will have one individual session (45-60 minutes). These sessions provide an opportunity for each of you to explore personal experiences, concerns, and aspirations related to your upcoming marriage.

 

 3. Post-Assessment Joint Session (90 minutes): Following the individual sessions, we will have a joint session to discuss the findings of the assessment, explore any challenges or areas of growth, and develop a customized plan for your journey.
