Friends Couple Enrichment focuses on affirming relationships through better  communication. It was developed by marriage counselors as a way to keep relationships  healthy. It is neither therapy nor counseling, it is preventive medicine for relationships. 

The workshop is an opportunity to step outside the busyness of our lives and focus on our  relationship with our partner. Learn skills to improve communication and closeness with  your partner. Learn and practice skills for deep listening and respectful communication.  Deepen your understanding and appreciation for each other. Learn to use conflict  creatively.
