Premarital, Marriage, and Family Counseling

Most if not all relationships go through hard times.  Gain insights to understand the why behind what is going on to bring healing and restoration.  Keep the flame that initially ignited your relationship burning strong by taking the opportunity to discover yourselves and your relationship in new ways.

We help couples identify their relationship strengths, gain understanding about the underlying dynamics that influence their communication, and then help couples develop skills to improve their growth areas.

We use a customized assessment tool to guide couples into relevant conversations about their strength areas, growth areas, and potential blind spots.  Our goal is to help couples build lasting relationships through using the Biblically based PREPARE/ENRICH program in counseling.  This has been the number one most used program for over 35 years.  Over 4 Million couples have used this assessment.

 

There are several goals of the PREPARE/ENRICH Program. In order to achieve these goals there are exercises designed to help couples improve their relationship skills. The program helps couples:

  • Explore strength and growth areas

  • Strengthen communication skills

  • Identify and manage major stressors

  • Resolve conflict using the Ten Step Model

  • Develop a more balanced relationship

  • Explore family of origin issues

  • Discuss financial planning and budgeting

  • Establish personal, couple and family goals

  • Understand and appreciate personality differences
