Plans for Life After Boot Camp
Wear something comfortable and casual. If you are cold natured, then bring a light sweater or coat as the room tends to be cool. Also, please dress modestly as many couples struggle with jealousy.

Yes! The Marriage Boot Camp does not discriminate against anyone for any reason.
The Marriage Boot Camp is for anyone wanting to make positive change in their lives and relationship. Many couples come as a continuing discipline of growth, while others come as a last ditch effort to save to save what they have.
We can absolutely help you. The Marriage Boot Camp has a success rate that is higher than traditional marriage counseling. We conducted a study following 62 divorcing couples who graduated the Boot Camp recommitted to thier marriages to see how they were doing 2 years later. 80% of these couples ranked themselves "happily married"!
First, you will have the opportunity to rediscover why you fell in love in the first place and can choose to build on this or decide that this was never enough. Second, you will learn to communicate in a way that will serve you well in every aspect of your life. You will have a set of tools with which to communicate, resolve conflict, and co-parent your children. These tools will make all of your relationships happy and healthy.
Many who come to the Marriage Boot Camp are struggling with infidelity. This is an extremely complicated issue with many diverse causes. Those who attend the Boot Camp will have the opportunity to discover the root causes, resolve the underlying issues, heal, forgive, and grow back together...IF you are willing to put in the hard work. You can leave the Boot Camp with the tools and disciplines to sustain a sacred and beautiful relationship.
Many couples invest so much time in the children's lives that they forget to invest in themselves or their relationship. The Boot Camp will help you rediscover who you are together and from there, find ways to explore the rich joy of life together. Couples who come to the Boot Camp say they feel closer and have a deeper new love than they ever knew was possible!
Marriage Boot Camp will make crystal clear that abusive behavior will never give you the life you've always wanted and we will give you the tools to express anger in a healthy way. We drill down into the root causes of toxic anger (often from childhood) and show you the path to freedom.

Generally no. Check with your insurance company as some will now pay for Life Coaching.
Addiction is a complex problem that requires several treatment approaches. The first is SOBRIETY. An addict must be sober before he can go on to the deeper healing work. The Boot Camp is designed to get at the deep wounds that are often the genesis of addiction. Remember, in addiction recovery sobriety is not the goal, connection is the goal.
Many counselors, therapists and coaches refer their clients to the Boot Camp seminar as it is a great way to begin or jump start the healing journey but it is NOT a replacement for the work that counselors do long term. Click on the CONTACT US window and we will work with you toward your therapeutic goals with your client. We can also provide financial assistance if needed.
You will spend over 40% of the entire time one-on-one interacting with just your mate.
The Boot Camp is overall a group experience with a variety of different configurations so that you get the most natural, life-like experience to grow and heal in. Traditional couples counseling is much less effective (and much more expensive both in time and money) partly because TOO MUCH time is spent one-on-one with a therapist and that is not how we actually live.
Most people will tell you that their Boot Camp experience was the perfect blend of one-on-one, small groups, big groups, and same-sex groups.
Many of our coaches and therapists offer private counseling. At the end of the Boot Camp, we do an aftercare presentation and introduce those with active private practices.
MARRIAGE BOOT CAMP & SPIRITUALITY
The Boot Camp is not a "religious" organization and we do not preach or manipulate. We do have a Christian underpinning of love and non-judgement. We do allow individuals to freely express how God relates to them, but we do not allow anyone to preach at others. We require that everyone be respectful of the different belief systems of the participants. Many people come to the Boot Camp with spiritual damage from religious people or organizations and we work very hard to help people heal and seek God in their own way.
The Marriage Boot Camp is an inclusive, respectful experience for everybody. In 20+ years we have not had a single complaint. Although we have Christian beliefs, we welcome everyone and hold strongly to the belief that we are not to judge another's beliefs.
"Good psychology is good theology" ~ Elizabeth Carroll. We believe that all the good in the healing arts aligns perfectly with biblical truth and we work diligently to maintain that balance. There is nothing in the Boot Camp curriculum that would be considered controversial to the Judeo Christian culture. We are a therapeutic, healing ministry not an evangelical ministry.
MARRIAGE BOOT CAMP TV
We do not choose who appears on the Marriage Boot Camp TV shows. If you are only interested on being on TV you will need to contact the TV network directly.
