Marriage Intensive

Developed for couples seeking a deeper level of care. 

The Life Bridge Ministries

Marriage Intensive

Combining the Heart 2 Heart Bonds Process with Transforming Prayer;

Bible Centered, Spirit Directed, Psychologically Sound.

Occasionally couples need more than an hour or two a week in counseling in order to get the breakthroughs that they seek. The intensive provides the benefit that comes with going deeper in a shorter period of time by disconnecting from our daily lives and staying focused on the process of healing. 

Our intensives include Pastoral Counseling, individual Transforming Prayer sessions and the Heart 2 Heart Bonding Process for married couples. 

This program was developed to meet the needs of couples living outside of the Northern California region, and those who feel they need a deeper level of care that regular counseling cannot provide. 

Length of the intensive:  Most intensives run for two full days, including evening hours.

The Intensive will be facilitated by Doug and Shari Tawlks, M.A. and other members of the counseling team. Find information here about the Transforming Prayer Model and Heart 2 Heart Marriages.

Doug Tawlks has an undergraduate degree in Psychology and Biblical Studies and an M.A. in Counseling. He has been doing counseling, inner-healing prayer ministry and teaching on the subject for over 30 years.

Intensive fees range from $1,200 to $1,800; depending on lodging needs and length of intensive. In most cases, we can provide free lodging. Scholarships are available.
