The right place and time

Coaching provides a context to pursue intimacy

e

When

It is always a good time to invest in your marriage. Coaching will make a good marriage better, a challenging marriage healthier, a transitional marriage come alive for the next season.

Why

Avoidance of conflict is the number one predictor of divorce. Coaching allows you and your spouse to discuss the complexities of your marriage in the safety of a coaching environment.

Who

Coaching is for any couple where both partners are willing to pursue intimacy. Whether or not you’re in ministry and regardless how long you’ve been married, coaching is for you.

What

Our Job as marriage coaches is to spend the time needed with a couple to genuinely hear and guide them to resources and tools that will make a difference, as soon as possible.

Relationship is everything

Our coaching process is about us, as a couple, building a relationship with you, as a couple. While there are thousands of useful resources out there to help your marriage, there is nothing that can replace the power of another human taking the time to walk life alongside you.

If you’re ready to take the first step towards deepening the passion, commitment, and intimacy in your marriage let us know and we’ll get in touch with you as soon as possible!

How does it work?

Step 1

Reach out now! If your instincts tell you that your marriage could use some coaching or counseling, don’t put it off. Send us an email or give us a call. We’ll answer your questions, set your expectations and help you understand our process. We are looking forward to getting to know you and your spouse.

Step 2

Take the Couple Checkup! The online Couple Checkup is a relationship assessment tool we use with all of our couples! The questions are tailored to you as couple based on the background questions you answer. It provides an informative and straightforward inventory of your relationship strengths and growth areas.

Step 3

Get to know us. It’s just as important for you and your spouse to get to know us as it is for us to get to know you and your spouse! We know that we can’t “fix” your marriage in a couple of hours, but what we can do is facilitate healthy conversations, provide accountability, and most importantly, walk you through this stage of your marriage and into a marriage full of passion, commitment and intimacy.

Step 4

Keep in touch! In case you haven’t picked up on this yet, we’ll spell it out. We’re in this together and we’re not going anywhere. After you’ve worked so hard to build the passion, intimacy, and commitment your marriage needs, we’re not content to let you return to the isolation that fosters poor communication, conflict avoidance, and sustained discontent. So keep in touch so we can continue to support and pray for you.

Our Philosophy

The number one predictor of Divorce is not the presence of conflict all marriages have conflict, the primary harbinger of difficulty and separation is the avoidance of conflict. Research shows that the greatest difference between couples who make it and those who don’t is that those who make it have the tools to deal with conflict. Coaching is an interactive process that helps couples to develop skills more rapidly and produce more satisfying results. Coaching is partnering with clients in a thought-provoking and creative process that inspires them to maximize their potential as a couple. The energy of the process is found in the coach’s ability to formulate powerful questions.

Coaches are trained to listen, to observe and to customize their approach to individual couples’ needs. Coaching allows the coach to spend the time needed with a couple to genuinely hear and guide them to resources and tools that will make a difference, as soon as, possible. Between Two Trees Coaching can be done in person or over the phone; in some cases weekend intensives help jumpstart the process.
