How are we unique? Cornerstone’s nationally recognized program has a proven success rate of restoring 4 of 5 crisis marriages.
Over the course of a weekend our professional team of our caring marriage counselors, coaches and facilitators walk couples through a “step-by-step” process utilizing tools and exercises which reveal the hidden barriers that are harming their relationship and keeping their marriage from thriving.
We start first before you arrive for the weekend by asking you to each complete our Confidential Marital Relationship Assessment Questionnaire, which helps us and you tom identify the kinds of challenges we need to help you deal with in your marriage. In our first session on Friday we lay the foundation for the weekend, giving you the framework of our process, and helping you begin to know and understand core issues to be dealt with in your relationship.
