Appointment Description

Thank you for your interest in coaching/counseling at MC. Please feel free contact our office to discuss your situation and get more information about our coaching/counseling. It remains our desire to coach/counsel as many people as possible, as quickly as possible, understanding that many of the situations are in an urgent state, and help is needed immediately.

Mail or email your completed MC Intake Form to Marriage Connect and call to schedule your counseling. We appreciate your patience and understanding as you wait for your appointment. If your schedule is flexible and you are able to make last-minute arrangements, please let us know and we can place you on our short-notice list in case of a cancellation.

Appointment Options:

Week long intensive counseling/coaching is 4 days (approximately 15 hours) for couples, or 3-4 days (approximately 9-12 hours) for individuals. A typical couples intensive is 6 hours on Monday and 3 hours Tuesday through Thursday. Other options are available on request. In order to schedule, we need to have a copy of your completed MC History Form.

One-hour counseling/coaching sessions are also available for individuals and couples.

Please keep a few things in mind as you prepare for coaching/counseling Intensive.

  1. MC coaching/counseling is done in an intensive format that allows us to build momentum. Couples meet for 15 hours in 4-5 days and individuals meet for 9 hours in 3 days. We typically meet with couples for two sessions on Monday, morning and afternoon, with a single morning or afternoon session Tuesday through Thursday. Individuals are scheduled for three morning or afternoon sessions. Sessions are from: 8:30 am to 11:30 am (mornings) and 12:30 pm to 3:30 pm (afternoons).
  2. We encourage you to focus on working through your own issues. There may be homework assignments to be completed prior to the next session.
  3. If you have children, please make arrangements for them to stay with relatives or friends. We do not have facilities here for them.
  4. Prior to your appointment, we ask you to complete some evaluations to help us better understand you and your situation. There is a processing fee for the evaluations. It is $50.00 for couples and $25.00 for individuals.

As a non-profit organization, our mission is to enrich lives by equipping and empowering individuals to cultivate life giving relationships. We ask for a tax-deductible donation of $100 per hour of counseling. A week long intensive is fifteen hours for couples and nine hours for individuals. We never let finances become a barrier that keeps people from getting the counseling they need.

We look forward to hearing from you.

In Christ’s service,

John & Rita Ziehr
