Pre-marital & Marriage Counseling

Both Dr. Hillyard and Dr. Sullivan are certified in Prepare-Enrich, a nationally recognized program for pre-marital and marriage counseling.  Prior to a wedding, engaged couples meet with the counselor for at least 3 sessions and do an
on-line assessment to look at compatibility.  Prepare-Enrich also has a program for strengthening existing marriages. 
Any pastor may refer married couples or engaged couples
to participate in the Prepare-Enrich program.  Contact either counselor for more information.
