The good news is that “71% of those who have attended say that their experiences have ranged from helpful to very helpful. And of those who haven’t attended marriage counselling with a spouse, 52% are interested in trying it out.” (Blogs & Ideas | MidAmerica Nazarene University, 2017)

This is worth mentioning because couples frequently enter therapy to resolve a “perceived problem.” However, as the sessions progress, it often becomes apparent that the “perceived problem” is not the issue.

- Enhance communication skills to share emotional, mental, and physical needs.
- Increase sense of intimacy, especially in couples with children.

- Navigate challenges with other family members as a couple.
