At the Marriage Recovery Center, we are passionate about helping couples find hope and healing for their relationships. Whether your marriage is in crisis, or you long for a deeper relationship with your spouse, we will help you gain the tools you need to experience a healthy and fulfilling marriage.

We use a solution-based counseling approach that helps couples and individuals move from old ways of relating and destructive cycles, with practical solutions that bring healing to their relationships. We also use an Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy model during our Marriage Intensives to help couples identify “raw spots” and “blind spots.” This approach uses strengths within your marriage to identify predictable patterns of disconnection and ways to reconnect to each other emotionally.

Quick Facts

We are a Christian-based organization, but work with couples of all backgrounds and faiths to find hope for their marriages.

We are also affiliated with the American Psychological Association and American Association of Christian Counselors.

Intensive Counseling…a different approach

Our Intensives Therapy programs provide you with the opportunity to retreat from your everyday life for a focused and extended time of counseling. We hear from countless couples and idividuals who feel frustrated with the lack of progress they experience in once a week counseling. Our 3-Day and 2-Day intensive marriage retreats and personal intensive retreats provide the time needed to fully address your needs and issues, and to help you reach a breakthrough.

Our Staff

Our Christian counseling staff includes doctorate and masters level therapists who will create an individual approach for your specific needs. We specialize in working with couples facing divorce, or experiencing conflict and emotional disconnection as a result of infidelity, sexual addiction, substance abuse, broken trust, emotional abuse and other issues.
