I do workshops for couples that are targeted to take a healthy marriage and make it stronger or to take a marriage in a challenging phase and strengthen it.

These workshops come in several formats

a one hour introductory workshop
a once a week workshop for an hour and a half for 6 consecutive weeks
or a full day workshop 9-4 pm.

In this workshop I review the Christian principles that help strengthen a marriage such as unconditional love, forgiveness, and the sacramental nature of marriage. In addition, I draw on knowledge of some of the top relationship therapists : Drs. Hal and Sidra Stone, Dr. Sue Johnson, Dr. John Gottman, Dr. Chelsea Wakefield, as well as others. The concepts from these fine master therapists combined with wisdom from my 25 years as a couples therapist and my 45 years in my own successful marriage, bring a fullness of practical help to couples.
