Areas of Expertise

Marriage and Family Counseling

Marriage vows may seem like a distant memory, or even a bad memory. Marriage has not turned out as expected. Children have added responsibility and stress. Work pressures have drowned out the intimacy once shared. Seemingly innocent topics lead into anger, silence, and distance…maybe even talk of divorce or thoughts of infidelity. You may have never thought “for worse” meant this, but what is the answer?


We understand that the human family is in crisis, and that all individuals are capable of and deserve God's mercy and compassion. It is our mission to reach out to families in order to help create and maintain greater love and health in relationships. We are committed to our Biblical counseling approach to individual, couple and marital counseling techniques that enhances the understanding of relationships and adds to the development of interventions that have been carefully evaluated called Temperament Therapy. It is our goal to make our services accessible to the broadest reach of people across race, religion, class, culture, and ethnicity. God loves us and wants us to live in peace and harmony with each other.  We are also committed to the care and support of our ministry team, as we know that compassion must begin with ourselves.
