I was skeptical at first about counseling (in general) and wondered what Chris O'Rear could really do to help my wife and me with our marriage. After several sessions, though, I knew we had made a great choice. Chris has a patient, disarming, gently probing style that encouraged us to talk about feelings and understand each other better. Much to my wife's delight, he doesn't set "homework", which allowed us to wrestle with topics at our own pace, and discover and learn in an un-forced way. I couldn't be happier with what we have been able to achieve, with Chris's help, to make our marriage stronger.
