A special message to couples in crisis:
It breaks our heart to see couples suffer. Sadly, for many they don’t know who to reach out to get help. They can’t imagine the slowness of 55-minute private counseling sessions being able to help them quick enough so they lose hope. They feel their problems are different so they lose hope. They feel they are alone in their struggles so they lose hope. They feel their mate/spouse will never change, so they lose hope. You don’t have to suffer this way. If you have severe conflicts, fight, hurt each other or use harsh words – you just can’t make any choice but the best choice for your relationship and time is short because hopelessness can destroy even the smallest of connection. Good news, is we can escalate repairing and restoring your relationship in just three days with this Couples Training. We can provide you hope and teach you skills on repairing, reinvigorating and re-building your relationship in a safe and respectful environment. We can teach you skills on creating a lasting relationship with love and respect deeply planted within it.
Whether you’ve had couples counseling or training’s before or this is your first experience, this 3-day Couples Training is a must and will greatly accelerate your hope – and progress! This Couples Extensive Training is often described as “transformational" and "life changing". And, Counselors and Ministers who have audited and attended this training say that it is equivalent to one year of one-on-one counseling in just three powerful days!

Just a few comments on what couples say about the Couples Training ...
"We loved this training!!! In it we learned the important things needed to create a solid foundation for our relationship. It helped us both see our part in the issues of our relationship, many of which surprisingly came from previous relationship baggage and experiences and had nothing to do with our own behaviors today. Expelling that baggage in a way that worked for us and everyone else in our class was powerful. Learning the skills on how to communicate and understand one another in conversation and conflict will be valuable in our future together.”
"This training is a MUST before any couple gets married -- it was amazing! It helped us learn how to see and understand one another’s point of view and then communicate and resolve conflict with one another respecting that point of view. The tools we learned will help us in all of our relationships, not just with one another.”
“The cost of this seminar was a concern for us before we registered – OH MY GOSH, don’t tell them but we’d pay 10 times the amount to learn the tools and skills we did! The way they conduct this seminar was powerful, personal and confidential allowing us to see our individual and couple parts of our issues AND then taught us how to change those issues. It helped us find forgiveness for ourselves and in our relationship giving us a clean slate. Wish we’d attended this seminar before we got married!”
“This training was fantastic and they don’t need to change one single thing about it. It helped us come back together and feel for one another again. Forgive and love each other. They taught us how to push through unforgiveness and identify what was sabotaging our marriage. The tools we learned on how to do that and so many other things will be cherished for the rest of our lives. This training is a MUST for any couple.”
“This couples training really put me in touch with myself and changed my view of how I see my spouse in the relationship. Coming into this training, we were in a really bad place and not sure we’d make it because of an affair. The forgiveness we learned how to give and receive for ourselves and one another wasn’t something the trainers were expecting but how we did it was real and authentic and one of the most powerful things I’ve ever experienced in my life. It really helped us connect with one another like never before and see things about one another that we hadn’t before in our marriage. The tools and exercises they taught us on how to dream, spend quality time together and have fun were something we needed and will always remember … and use.”
“We registered for this training as a last-ditch effort to save our marriage. This couples workshop gave us hope along with tools, skills and a plan to not just restore our marriage, but make it better than before! Something neither of us had when we walked in the door. Addiction had ravaged our trust and marriage. Being able to put the pieces back together and start all over with serious skills gave us hope and clarity about our future together. If it feels like your marriage can’t be saved, don’t quit until you’ve given this training a try. You’ll love the transparency and ease of David and Amy.”
“We’ve attended a number of couple’s workshops and training’s in our 20+ years of marriage and this is by far the best ever! The communication skills that we learned in this training were tools we’ve never heard before and second to none. They are powerful tools for any couple at any stage of happiness or unhappiness. Learning how to talk, listen and understand one another will help us do something we’ve not managed to do in our marriage -- fight fair and respect one another.”
