What is PAIRS?
PAIRS (Practical Application of Intimate Relationship Skills) programs provide a comprehensive system to enhance self-knowledge and to develop the ability to sustain pleasurable intimate relationships. PAIRS unique, innovative approach integrates a wide range of theories and methods from psychology, education and psychotherapy and presents them in an educational format. PAIRS acts to bridge therapy, marital enrichment, and marriage and family development.
The Goal of PAIRS is a relationship that both partners can live with joyfully. For this to happen, each partner must become able to identify his or her own feelings and needs, and learn to communicate them in such a way that they can be met. This means communicating one's needs and desires without making the other partner feel resentful, smothered, burdened, manipulated, or inadequate.
The Mission of PAIRS is to teach those attitudes, emotional understandings and behaviors that nurture and sustain healthy relationships and to make this knowledge broadly available on behalf of a safer, saner, more loving world.
We are PREPARE/ENRICH Facilitators and use this assessment tool to quickly clarify a couple's needs so that little time is wasted "figuring out what seems to be problem". Of particular value to the couple is a ten-page profile with graphs, charts, and diagrams that help the couple quickly see in full color what they have been trying to figure out and change.
For more information about PREPARE/ENRICH, please visit their website www.prepare-enrich.com.
If you would like to participate in a PREPARE/ENRICH assessment, receive two copies of the ten-page profile, and meet to discuss the results of the assessment, please feel free to send us an email at email@example.com or call us at (610) 662-9533. We require both of your full names and email addresses. The cost of the PREPARE/ENRICH assessment is $35 per couple. The cost of the PREPARE/ENRICH counseling sessions is $85 per hour.
If you prefer to work on your marriage on your own, there is another valuable resource available to you that is very similar to the Prepare/Enrich inventory. It is an online assessment that you and your partner fill out independently and confidentially. It is available at www.couplecheckup.com. After completing the assessment, a profile of your relationship is generated and emailed to you along with a 27-page guide for relationship enhancement. For more information, click the link below:

What is a Life Coach?
Before we explain what a life coach is, let us first tell you what it is not. A life coach is not a psychiatrist, psychologist or counselor. A life coach is one who will help improve your personal and professional life by offering support and encouragement while suggesting new ways to achieve your goals.A life coach is more of a partnership than anything else. It is a support system with one goal in mind: improving your quality of life. When you see yourself as you really are, free from the desires of others, it becomes easier to figure out where you’d like to go, what you’d like to do, and which path(s) holds the greatest promise for a fulfilling, meaningful life.
As certified professional life coaches, we help our clients embrace success by creating a vision and action plan towards living life to its fullest potential. The Bible reminds us in Proverbs 29:18, "Where there is no vision, the people perish." We firmly believe that a vision that is well defined will help you to focus and create a purpose that becomes the measurement for success.
