The Marriage Boot Camp is unlike traditional couple’s therapy. You won’t be sitting through lectures and you will not be bored. By actively participating and using a series of topics and questions, couples quickly identify the root cause of their issues, then work together and individually to repair the damage. When damage is repaired the walls come down!

We cover many topics during the seminar program such as communication, conflict resolution, healing from the past, getting your needs met, sexual intimacy, forgiveness and so much more!

The Boot Camp uses several group configurations from one-on-one to small groups, to big groups. Each configuration creates the exact environment to get the most out of every experience. You will not only learn from a particular game or drill, but you will also learn from others who may be struggling with the same issues that you face today. You will discover that YOU ARE NOT ALONE! And, you’re sure to make friends for a lifetime!

The couples will experience activities that immediately promote open lines of communication. No note taking is necessary, THIS IS BOOT CAMP, and every activity is hands-on, interactive, and precisely timed. We apply “drill and kill” techniques so that you will leave the Boot Camp with experience and the tools you need to apply healthy relationship habits upon graduation from the program.
