Men’s Support Group

As a staff we’re always paying attention to the greatest needs of our couples. We’re constantly evaluating what is working and what isn’t.  Are there other supports that are needed?  Lately one particular need continues to present itself…and our men are asking for it: A men’s emotional intelligence support group Men, especially husbands and fathers, […]

Hopeful Spouse Counseling

Karen called me last week with a familiar refrain: “Glen, we’re sinking…our marriage is falling apart. BUT, my husband doesn’t want to come in for counseling. Can you help us?” The Truth Is… Absolutely! We often get calls from the “hopeful spouse.” Sometimes it’s the husband, other times it’s the wife. They are committed to […]

Communication 101 Coaching!

Well Marriage Center is launching a new marital wellness program! Our Communication 101 Coaching program actually emerged from a powerful statement and moment during one of our Communication 101 Classes.  A husband looked at his wife, and simply said, “I understand what you’re feeling.  I just wasn’t able to hear you…I couldn’t understand what you […]

Are there warning signs you can […]

The Longest Married Couple

“Honey, I still love you” The honoring of one’s life is a sacred ritual, a celebration of legacy and achievement and a life well lived.  We at Well Marriage Center tip our hats and acknowledge/celebrate the life of Theresa Faiss, who passed away this week at the age of 97.  Theresa, along with her husband […]

Communication 101

Yes, it might be a bit cliche to emphasize healthy communication for a healthy marriage, but that doesn’t make it wrong.  It just means you aren’t alone if you’re struggling with it.  Every marriage struggles with communication at times, and EVERY marriage could benefit from a communication program/workshop that helped them deepen their connection with […]

Take Back Your Marriage!

We at Well Marriage Center are unabashed fans of Dr. William (Bill) Doherty. His book, Take Back Your Marriage: Sticking Together in a World that Pulls us Apart, is often something we recommend to young couples just starting out on the marriage journey. But over the past several years, we’ve been recommending this book to […]
