“When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.”
– Nora Ephron

You’re in love! Congratulations! Whether you’re officially engaged or simply talking about your future together, premarital counseling is a smart move now. In Orange County premarital counseling with Dr. Piper Walsh helps couples create a healthy relationship which will lead to a happier and more satisfying marriage. Couples who attend premarital counseling are couples who want to start life together in the best way possible; with openness, love and mutual respect.

When you’re engaged, everyone has advice for you. “Have a small wedding!” “Make it a destination wedding!” “Elope!” and even, from some unhappy folk, “Don’t do it!” Naturally much of that advice is filtered through the lens of someone else’s experiences, hopes, dreams – and sadly, even their pain. While the opinions of family and friends are often a valuable element in your decision-making, the most important values and opinions remain those of you and your future spouse. It’s important that you understand one another’s views, expectations. So how do you know you are both on the same page? In Orange County premarital counseling with Dr. Walsh can help you to help you identify issues and decide how you want to address them together, so that they don’t become bigger problems down the road.

It’s often said that couples spend more time planning for their weddings than preparing for their marriage. The wedding is important to you, so you take the time to plan it all out. Having a healthy marriage takes planning too, and this is the time to design the marriage of your dreams. In Orange County, premarital counseling with Dr. Piper Walsh can help you to develop common ground on key issues, agree on what’s important to you both and learn how to communicate effectively when you don’t see “eye-to-eye”. In premarital counseling, the two of you have an opportunity to create a truly solid foundation on which to build a strong and happy marriage.
