Before & Beyond "I do"

Premarital counseling is a form of therapy designed for partners preparing for marriage. It focuses on helping partners build a strong, healthy foundation for their future together. This proactive approach can prepare partners with the tools and insights needed to navigate the challenges and joys of married life.

At Hope & Serenity Health Services, we offer a comprehensive premarital counseling program that is tailored to fit your relationship needs. This program, meticulously developed by Dr. Harris-Jackson, is designed to help partners build a strong and healthy foundation before they say "I do."

"May this marriage offer fruit and shade 
like the date palm. 
May this marriage be full of laughter, 
our every day a day in paradise. 
May this marriage be a sign of compassion, 
a seal of happiness here and hereafter."
