Rock Your Relationship was founded by Barbara Mackintosh, LMFT, CST in 2010 as a non-profit organization with two main goals – offer high quality Premarital Counseling and Wedding Officiating. Hundreds of couples attend our classes each year and give rave reviews for the reasonable pricing and relevant  curriculum that enables couples to grow together by creating new "our ways"while also learning how to communicate more effectively and resolve conflict without arguing or fighting.

 

Our process is structured to foster growth in all of the key areas of a couple's relationship. As couples work together to build the foundations of a healthy relationship, they are learning new skills that enable them to listen and understand the opinions and ideas of their partner. In essence, they are given the tools and skills that are necessary to co-create a relationship that they will love.

 

Our curriculum is based on a solid research foundation. Every couple will take the customized, strengths-oriented Prepare-Enrich assessment and learn new skill-building exercises that develop better communication and conflict resolution skills.

Rock Your Relationship is considered the #1 Premarital Provider in the Twin Cities and has been inducted into The Knot's "Best of Weddings Hall of Fame" for Premarital and Wedding Officiating. This highly coveted award is only given to exceptional wedding professionals who have earned four or more of The Knot's annual "Best of Wedding Awards"  representing the top 4% of local wedding vendors  listed on The Knot.

Rock Your Relationship offers four unique formats to choose from: 1) Private Premarital, 2) Group Premarital Classes, 3) Day-Long Group Premarital, and 4) Two-Day Weekender.

All of our premarital options include a private session to review the results of the Prepare-Enrich online assessment.

BARBARA GAVE GREAT ADVICE THAT WE STARTED USING FOR CONFLICT MANAGEMENT AND
GENERAL RELATIONSHIP MAINTENANCE THAT HAS ALREADY WORKED WONDERS.
WE TOOK A VERY EXTENSIVE "ASSESSMENT" AT THE END AND SHE REALLY TOOK THE TIME TO GO OVER
ANSWERS AND CONCERNING AREAS WITH US SO IT TRULY FELT LIKE SHE LEFT NO STONE UN-TURNED.
IF WE EVER FEEL LIKE WE NEED HELP AGAIN WE WILL BE GOING BACK TO BARBRA.
