Our education in Marriage and Family Therapy trained us well in how to work with couples more in depth than a therapist or counselor who was taught to work primarily with individuals. Additionally, we continually seek supplemental education and training so that we are constantly learning about new and innovative practices in the field.
Christie is also a certified Prepare/Enrich facilitator, which means she is specially trained to work with couples for premarital counseling and marriage enrichment. The Prepare/Enrich program has helped over 3 million couples in the last 30 years to get the most out of their relationships. She has also trained and is certified under Drs. John and Julie Gottman's couples therapy methods for helping couples have better, more effective, and loving relationships. The idea with this method is to get couples communicating better and increasing their levels of intimacy and trust through reconnecting their friendship and love for each other.
