To reduce the number of marriages ending in divorce court. To restore love and trust when marriage fails. To bring HOPE by teaching faith working through love.
It is my experience that each couple is unique in the problems they are wrestling with. Nonetheless, certain roots seem to be at the base of almost all problems that couples have. Namely, troubled marriages usually show weaknesses in love. Love is being willing to value your partner and being unwilling to devalue your partner. Generally, troubles marriages are those in which each partner devalues the partner and fails to take opportunities to show and tell the other how much the partner is valued.
Generally, as love has lessened people lose confidence that the marriage can ever improve, and their demoralization and loss of hope prevent them from working on changing the relationship.
If you are going to improve your relationship, you must do the following:
1. Regain a willingness to work on improving your relationship and sustain that willingness long enough so that the marriage can bounce back. The worse off your marriage is now, the longer you must be willing to work to change it before you give up.
2. Focus on the good things that you do. If you focus on the successes and try to ignore the failures for a period, you'll regain a sense of faith in the relationship and confidence that it can improve.
3. Increase your efforts to value your partner in love at every opportunity, and increase your efforts to avoid devaluing your partner.
To Improve, love your partner more by valuing him or her.
Adopt a Helpful Attitude
Marital problems focus our attention on ourselves. It is easy to see the ways we are hurt, the things that the partner is doing to hurt and devalue us, the ways the partner seems to be avoiding work or showing a lack of faith, the unforgiveness the partner harbors. In short, what you see is your partner not yourself. Yet you cannot change your partner. You can only change yourself. You must, therefore stop looking at what your partner does and doesn't do, and start focusing intently on how you can change your own behavior to make things better in your relationship.

She was exceptionally easy to work with. She provided understanding that we never knew about each other. Her assessments were right on target for what was hurting our marriage. She gave us biblical hope, God’s love and real world application that is still working in our marriage. She understood how we wanted to have our dream marriage and helped us design and plan for that marriage we had in our dreams. Keith & Jane
What I do
People receive counseling or coaching for many reasons. It seems that most are unhappy with their lives and want to find ways to improve their life. Many people wonder "Why do I do what I do?" I love to help you resolve your relationship problems and transform your marriage – radically and permanently – by taking a completely different approach to marriage counseling. In fact, it’s not a couple’s therapy program at all. The method I use is the Hope-Focused Marriage Enrichment Approach.
