Skills for a Lifetime of Lovetm
Our Counseling Services
Marriage Counseling & Couple Counseling
The Relationship Enhancement® approach to therapy for couples teaches you the skills of love to learn, grow and heal together – to live out the commitment you once made to each other. These skills will help you achieve your goal of a fulfilling and long-term committed relationship.
When we meet that special person and are considering making a commitment, or have decided to commit, we may wonder whether this special relationship is sustainable over time. Relationship Enhancement® pre-marital counseling will give you the skills to make your love an everyday reality for a lifetime.
Family Counseling & Stepfamily Counseling
We provide family counseling using the Relationship Enhancement® or Filial Family Therapy approaches, which teach skills that allow family members to communicate more constructively, understand one another more deeply, solve problems more effectively, and build stronger family bonds.
Counseling for Children
Counseling services for children can be effective in helping them improve behavioral self-control, improve self-confidence and self-image, decrease depression and increase happiness, and improve parent-child and peer relationships.
In addition to issues such as depression, anxiety, grief and loss, many individuals initiate counseling because of relationship issues, whether with a spouse or significant other, a child, one’s own parents or siblings, a friend or professional colleagues.
Workshops for Couples
The Center also offers the nationally acclaimed Mastering the Mysteries of Love (MML) weekend program for married, engaged and dating couples. The MML program is the most extensively used educational version of the Relationship Enhancement® approach, and is designed to equip couples with the necessary relationship skills in order to enhance the odds of having a satisfying, fulfilling, and long-lasting relationship or marriage.
