Therapy was extremely effective in helping my husband and I deal with the issue of infidelity in our marriage. We chose a Christian counselor over one provided by our insurance company because we felt it was important to talk to someone with similar religious beliefs as ourselves. By focusing on forgiveness and finding a way back to each other via the Bible we have an even stronger marriage than before. Tina
I am not sure my marriage would have survived had my wife and I not received the Christian based marriage counseling we so desperately needed. Through prayer and openness Dr. Chuck helped me heal wounds and find redemption. Most importantly, Dr. Chuck led my wife to forgiveness and taught us to live like people who have been forgiven of our sins. Grant
We participated in premarital counseling and absolutely loved it! So many couples would be surprised how much counseling would improve their relationships. We just recently got married in April of 2006, and everyone says that your first year of marriage is the hardest and I could not agree more. During your first year you have to learn to live together, compromise for both sides of the family, make your own family, and learn to deal with each others differences. Our counseling taught us how to deal with each one of these areas and more. Also, it taught us not to beat around the bush when you are upset or aggravated with each other, just come out and say “We need to talk”, which will save so much wasted time on trying to read each others mind. We have a stronger and closer relationship now than ever before, we now know how to communicate with each other and express our feelings mutually. We listen to each other and give each other turns to talk without interruption, and try to keep an open mind to how the other feels. You have to realize that your mate is not going to agree or see things always the same way you do, variety is what makes marriage interesting. We both have learned to give more of ourselves and our time to each other. We truly work as a team which makes things easier and gives us more time to spend together. If we could narrow down to one main point that we learned from our counseling it would be Communication. Communication is the key to a long and happy marriage. We would encourage any engaged couple, newly married couple, or even a couple who has been together for several years to participate in counseling; it will truly strengthen your relationship. There are many topics that couples just skim the surface of but never dive in to the real issues- counseling allows you to dive in, sort it out, and solve your differences. Mike and Alice
Dr. Chuck has been a wonderful therapist for our family. When we began therapy, we were very challenged by our 15-year-old daughter. Her on-going acting-out had become so unbearable that we wondered if we could maintain as a family. With Dr. Chuck’s therapy, we’ve not only been able to see some things as less critical, but learned that our individual intentions and/or attitudes were not always understood amongst each other. We’ve worked harder at recognizing that some things were not as make-all, end-all as they use to feel. And other things are going to require more mutual understanding and acceptance. With his help, my husband and I are communicating better with our daughter, and we are more able to enforce appropriate boundaries. In turn, she is realizing more that her actions will always have consequences. We still reach heightened moments, but there seems to be better coping and understanding for each family member. Even our 10-year-old son feels as though he can speak-up more about how things are affecting him. I feel as though Dr. Chuck has helped us communicate better and has helped us to try and have a more objective understanding as we work-through each circumstance. We truly value his insight, observations and kind-hearted style in helping us cope with our family’s growth and harmony. We are grateful for all that he has done for our family. Dr Chuck has been a true blessing to each of us. Gina
Once engaged, we were excited about beginning pre-marital counseling. We knew it would deepen our relationship but we had no idea how much it would help us both in our own individual lives. Pre-marital counseling with Dr. Chuck was an eye opener! It was a time of finding things in our own individual life that we needed to strengthen. In strengthening these areas, we were able to watch our relationship grow and take off to another level. Pre-marital counseling was also a time of examining several areas of our relationship and determining ways to make our relationship even stronger! We cherish all of the valuable advice and guidance from pre-marital counseling. John and Mary
