Introduction: Great News! Kathy Schlund, CACP has joined us! We perform our services with confidence and compassion for all those we serve from tying the "KNOT" to experiencing the "NOT". "THE KNOT": The stars of the wedding are the soon to be wedded and we work to make that happen without disturbances and disruptions. We also put our best foot forward to relieve the stress the Groom and Bride are feeling so they can enjoy their special moment together. After all, this is the most important day in the life of the bride! "THE NOT" But when the relationship turns from a dream to a nightmare, we apply the same confidence and skill for all counseling sessions to build communication and trust after which all else falls in line. We will travel to the home of the people that we counsel for your true privacy and comfort, and to practice your newly learned skills based upon our time tested lessons that WILL improve your relationship with the very first visit. We love to serve those who dream of their future together and those who have the desire to improve their relationships. We will never give up because when you reach out to us, you want someone with the skill, knowledge and drive that matches your desires! Kathy Schlund adds a new dimension to counseling as a professional coach. From suffering with a life in crisis and/or a lack of goals to being frustrated with lack of movement in business or reaching health goals, Kathy has experience with all these challenges. Her warm, caring, empathetic and honest understanding of your issues will give you well rounded and time tested guidance to help you have a brighter outlook on life and a road map to your desired outcomes and goals. From children to adults, her stories of success are too numerous to list. Gary says "If I need life insights, Kathy is the only person I would trust and listen to....."

Marriage and Relationship Counseling

Reverend Gary is exactly what I was praying for in a counselor. He’s very observant and really seeks to understand the root of the issues within a marriage. His goal is to help both parties understand one another, not just learn to “deal” with the issues. Highly recommend for any marriage that can improve their communication!

Marriage and Relationship Counseling

Gary provided marriage counseling to me and my husband. Two and half hours for the first meeting! He listened, made observations that surprised me but were dead on, and gave us solid advice to get back on the right track. Homework, so to speak. I feel really good about his recommendations and have high hopes for improvement in the relationship.

Yes, the meeting was a bit long, but I did not want to leave you without progress because I want to encourage you both with moving forward!

Non-Religious Wedding Officiant

Mr. Gary Lacara is a SUPERSTAR!!! We highly recommend his premarital and relationship/marriage counseling expertise to every couple that's on a mission to succeed together, to truly commit to one another and work out their differences before and after getting married !!! Gary is very worldly, knowledgeable and experienced in all areas of life to truly understand and get to the bottom of our complexities as couples and human beings. He genuinely guides you, if not even relate to you and your partner on a personal level. As a tandem, after our premarital counseling, my (now) husband and I were wed by Mr. Gary Lacara in a sweet intimate ceremony in the comfort of our home, that was professionally as well as beautifully done to make us 'official' and we are very happy with the whole experience and look forward to having Mr. GARY by our side as our marriage counselor to help keep our relationship healthy and nourished and our communication clear. :) A+++++ for Mr. Gary Lacara!!!!

Marriage and Relationship Counseling

Upon meeting Rev. Garrett for the first time, to help us with marriage counseling, we immediately felt comfortable opening up to him. He was straight forward, to the point, and could read both of us to help guide him in our discussions. We can now begin to understood what we need to do to grow closer and strengthen our relationship. My husband and I are looking forward to having him help us remain accountable while we progress through counseling. He is providing us with the tools that we were missing. He has our complete trust and gratitude.
