Pre-marital & Marriage Counseling

Dr. Hillyard is 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.


Please call or email Dr. Hillyard to set up
an appointment.


The charge for each counseling
session is $85.00, which is payable
at the time of service. As a church sponsored ministry, we have limited funds to subsidize or reduce fees in specific and approved situations.


Counselors are on various Insurance
and EAP panels.
