Engagement Therapy

Pre-marriage Therapy

Uncover Your Triggers and Strengthen your relationship for a strong and healthy marriage. 

Is something getting in the way of building more love and trust in your future marriage?

Do you want to create a healthier relationship than you witnessed?

Do you want to plan your wedding respectfully, without losing your voice to your parents and soon to be in-laws?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you’re looking to get marriage right, the first time around.

Engagement coaching can help.

You can plan a wedding, strengthen your relationship, and deal with your parents and fute in-laws respectfully, without losing your voice.

The engagement period can be both exciting and very stressful.

Parents and future in-laws can get in the way. Figuring out what you as individuals and as a couple want, while balancing your respective careers, can cause you to forget how excited you are about getting married.

But there is good news. There are things that you can do, to more than just survive.

Receive the skills you need to put things in perspective, open the lines of communication, and understand the triggers that crop up now, and may crop up in your marriage.

Engagement coaching will not only help you cope with drama, it will also help you strengthen your upcoming marriage so that you start it on the right foot, with the skills and resources it takes to build a strong, lasting, and healthy relationship.

Are halachic concerns causing more arguments than usual?

Halachic concerns before and after being married may trigger some couples into more arguments than usual.

While not all issues will continue to apply after you are married, it is important to deeply understand your triggers. I will help you work through these, and provide you with the skills and resources to help you deal with issues affecting you now, as well as those that may come up in your marriage. When applicable, I will point you in the right direction of a rabbi, rabba or yoetzet halacha.

True Stories

We did the Prepare/Enrich workshop with Micki a year after we got married. We than did some couples work with Micki as we had some different ideas about our relationship expectations. Micki was very good at seeing both of our perspectives and not making us feel that she was taking sides. She enabled each of us to see what we needed to do differently to get the relationship in the best place possible.

There is nothing worse than realizing you have made a huge mistake in marrying the wrong one. We had fun together when we were dating, but only realized after we had made a huge mistake. We felt like such failures as we tried so hard to keep pushing each other to keep going. It was only by working with Micki that we got to see that who we are as people just wouldn’t work long term as a couple. We are so grateful that we managed to get out of this relationship before complicating things by having children together. We now feel free to live our lives in a way that suits each of us individually. We have also learned what our true needs are so that we will choose partners who are better for us going forward.

I came to see Micki because I just started dating a woman that I thought was the most beautiful woman in the world. I was freaked out because I didn’t want to “screw it up.” I had a history of suffering from depression and anxiety. Micki really helped me to hold myself together and see this woman, in a more realistic way so that I wouldn’t put her on a pedestal which would have completely destroyed the relationship. We have now been married for a year and have a baby together. We did some pre-marriage couples work with her so we could learn some tools and skills for how to work together. So grateful we did.
