When my fiancee and I were in search of a pre-marital counselor, we didn't know what to expect. We just knew it was best practice to do pre-marital counseling, so we did. The minute we met with Kim for an intro session, she was a kind, comforting presence that was able to get both me and my partner to easily share - something rare for my partner. Throughout our time working with Kim, she helped us hone in on issues within our relationship while discovering things about ourselves - individually - that we didn't realize were negatively affecting us. What we loved most about Kim was that she didn't just talk us through every problem we were working to solve but provided us with tools that we will be able to use for years to come. In our sessions, Kim provided great counseling with a sincere intention to set our marriage off on a strong foundation of self-awareness and clear communication to build our relationship upon. Thank you, Kim, for all of your guidance and support!

Pastor Mike performed premarital counseling for us, and officiated at our wedding. His guidance and counsel were invaluable. He brought us into a deeper understanding of each other, and of God's plan for our marriage. He brought the perfect balance of truth and humor to our wedding ceremony. We are grateful for the help he gave us in building a strong foundation for our marriage. We just celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary!
Couples Counseling: We have just had one session with Alma. She has a warm welcoming presence. She did a great job of asking each of us questions and validated each of our perspectives. She provided practical feedback and we intend to continue.

I love her so much that I refer her to all my friends and family. If you want your relationship to make sense I strongly reccommend talking to her." ~ Richelle Jernigan
