When Rob and Dori started Marriage and Family Life, their passion was to make lasting differences in many lives. Over 20 years and hundreds of satisfied clients, Rob and Dori are even more passionate in assisting marriages, couples, families, and individuals. Their most unique, but not only approach with couples who need a deeper, more therapeutic experience is counseling couples as a couple, versus the classic one-counselor approach. Simply, you receive two counselors who have been married for 25 years, and all for the price and time of what it is with one counselor.
Their other most common approach to helping clients is called Life Coaching. About 40% of Marriage and Family Life’s individuals and couples choose life coaching over counseling. Life coaching, versus counseling, focuses less on emotional trauma and long-term issues, and more on communication, conflict resolution, and inter-personal and relationship skill building. Life coaching is also slightly less expensive per session than using the 2-counselor team approach defined above.
Rob and Dori are Christians, and know a client's spiritual belief and value system is a vital key to mental and emotional health. High quality Christian counseling and coaching – versus a dogmatic, religious approach – is very sensitive and highly respectful of all faiths. Christian counseling\coaching motivates clients to evaluate their own values and strengths, assess areas that are most important to build and change, and then start creating relationship and inter-personal life patterns to ensure long-term change.
Individual Life Coaching, at present, is offered for females over 14 years old who are looking to make life pattern changes, to achieve personal goals, and to break unhealthy habits in their relationships. Clients explore their personal and life-success values and self-image beliefs to create purpose and life-long goals during life coaching sessions.
Marriage and Family Life also provides education and training services for churches and businesses to build key leadership, communication, and inter-personal skills. We offer seminars, workshops, retreats, public speaking events, skills and strengths assessment, and overall team and organizational development services.
