...I formed a powerful connection to the other men in our group...
Dave

(Through the Core program) I formed a powerful connection to the other men in our group that I can draw strength from and support going forward. I left with an inner peace even though I am still in the storm because I have a process for healing. I have hope in what was once a seemingly a hopeless situation before.

I never knew what narcissism was...
Dustin

I never knew what narcissism was or how it had truly controlled my life and behavior. The Men’s Core program unpacked some truths that I had been totally blind too. This program has shown me a new way. I’m beyond grateful.

Hearing I had narcissistic tendencies from my wife of 36 years was a hard truth...
John

Hearing I had narcissistic tendencies from my wife of 36 years was a hard truth I had to face. Fortunately I was able to work with the Marriage Recovery Center to overcome these tendencies. They were open and truthful about the disorder about what I was doing to my wife with my actions. They provided me a safe, non judgmental place to get help and give me tools to use to help heal my marriage.

Your therapy was life changing.
Patty & Steve

Your therapy was life changing. We are actually living a married life that we have never experienced before. It is better than it has ever been. I think the biggest life changers were working to help each other be safe, and to nurture each other instead of hurting each other. I really have so much gratitude for your help. I was at the end of my rope, and you really helped me.

My wife and I have been married for 44 years and have counseled...
Len

My wife and I have been married for 44 years and have counseled with many therapists over much of that time. As helpful as many of those counselors have been, none of them devoted the compassion and skillset that we experienced with Jill. It is undeniably obvious that Jill truly cares about me, my needs, and my marriage. I think of her as The Relationship Whisperer. She knows not only what to say, but how and when to say it. Her guidance is delivered in such a way that it hits to the core of damaging thoughts and behaviors while avoiding negative reaction from the hearer. I have been stopped in my tracks many times by Jill – each time in a poignant yet loving and impactful manner. Jill directs a person to discern, reveal and correct false thinking.

My wife and I are experiencing a rewardingly transformative shift...
Len

My wife and I are experiencing a rewardingly transformative shift in our communication, relationship, and mutual love and respect. We have developed awareness of each other that has been lacking all of these years. We are now able to recognize and correct the destructive patterns that we have unwittingly allowed to impede our marriage. Thanks to the Marriage Recovery Center we are thriving!

It has always been difficult to get my husband to see a counselor.
Arlene

It has always been difficult to get my husband to see a counselor. Jill at the Marriage Recovery Center is the first one he has connected with. He actually listens to her and tries to put her advice into practice. Her wisdom, knowledge and delivery demands respect. I am confident God has placed her in our lives for this time.

Path of Renewal saved our marriage.
Rebecca

Path of Renewal saved our marriage. And while my husband and I still have far to go in our healing journey, the communication tools we learned have served us greatly as we work together to heal from layers and years of hurt and trauma. So grateful for the wisdom, insight and help we’ve received from the Marriage Recovery Center.

I showed up very angry as might be expected.
Dave

I showed up very angry as might be expected. I showed up wanted to be right wanting my wife to stop what she was doing. I left broken for how I have treated my wife once the reality of what I have been doing to her became real to me. I left with a desire to heal my marriage and a commitment to rebuild what I have destroyed.

God does not always answer prayers in the way we hope...
Kristin

God does not always answer prayers in the way we hope, but He uses people to bring clarity in the places we need. I am thankful for Sharmen and the Marriage Recovery Center for providing a safe space to hear God's voice

I went into the marriage counseling with much uncertainty...
Sam

I went into the marriage counseling with much uncertainty since we previously hadn't been able to dig deep into issues without running into road blocks or stumbling. The V communication tool really helped us to break down unhealthy elements of our history together in a way that has allowed healing.

Kristin

After 15 months of separation, I did not feel safe communicating with my spouse. Sharmen from Marriage Recovery gave us the tools we have prayed for to heal wounds and lift darkness. We are thankful for her experience and wisdom!

Dr. Hawkins showed great care and concern for my well-being...
Jay

Dr. Hawkins showed great care and concern for my well-being, and at the same time 'tells it like it is,' which isn't always comfortable, but was done in my best interest in moving forward, toward me living with integrity and authenticity. He has the heart necessary for seeing marriages survive and thrive.

I am so glad I found you and MRC...
Garth

I am so glad I found you and MRC since I really do believe our marriage has a chance thanks to your counseling. My only regret is that I hadn’t found you sooner, but God has his ways and I suppose we were not ready up until now.

I previously suffered with anxiety, fear of disapproval and an inability to set personal boundaries.
Amy

I previously suffered with anxiety, fear of disapproval and an inability to set personal boundaries. My fear was internal and no one knew I suffered with it. By the end of the therapy, I instinctively and decisively knew what my boundaries and convictions are. I no longer live with fear and anxiety. I become more and more empowered every day. I am still a "nice" person, but I am strong, firm, assertive, confident and guilt-free. I highly recommend the Marriage Recovery Center. It is the best thing I've ever done for myself. It impacts every personal interaction and continues to enhance my life every day and.

Thank you for being "our miracle.”
Deanne and Gene

Thank you for being "our miracle.” One of the reasons we selected you to be the person to try and help us heal our relationship is that you offered and believed in hope. We left our 3 Day Intensive feeling more connected, prepared and hopeful as we have ever been. We see the road ahead and truly want to travel it together. There was no road without your help. We are forever grateful.

Anonymous

I am so very grateful for your care and expertise in the intervention you guided. It was completely life-transforming! My husband’s heart changed through this intervention and with that his behavior changed - real change, not fake, not forced. He has stayed connected, truly connected. This is priceless - our marriage, our partnership, our life ——and we have you to thank for it!
