Non Religious Pre-Marital Counseling

My fiance and I are looking for a good pre marital counselor in the Milwaukee area. Does anyone know of any? Or some good pre marriage books? We are so busy planning the wedding we're forgetting to plan our marriage!

We are not looking for a religous counselor or an officiant. Thanks!!

    We went to a one day pre-marital workshop put on by Lutheran Social Services of Wisconsin.  Even though it is technically Lutheran, there was nothing religious about the counseling.  I think it was very helpful, and the counselor was great.

    Check with your insurance carrier to see what your mental health coverage includes.  If you have decent coverage look into seeing a Licensed Clinical Social Worker (LCSW) who specializes in relationship counseling.  We saw Paul Krepel.  Here's his contact info:

    My fiance and I are going to premarital counseling here in Madison. They recommended a book and I think its pretty great. Its called Saving Your Marraige Before It Starts, and you also need to get the Men's and Women's workbook. Some of the book is a little hokey but the main point is doing the excercises in the workbooks, and then especially talking with your fiance about your answers. It just gives a really great guide for having some deep, meaningful conversations and getting to know a lot more about where the other person is coming from. Its by Les and Leslie Parrott.
