Who are Couples Groups For?
Once a couple has done our six-session process, they are eligible for an ongoing couples support group.
The goal of these groups is to give couples who have made an investment of time and money to learn these new skills a place to keep practicing and growing their relationship in a supportive, cost-efficient process.
