• Your marriage will be one of the most important and satisfying relationships you’ll ever have. And like any quality relationship, you'll get out of it what you put into it. A successful marriage takes an investment of time, effort, and a mutual commitment to each other. That's where premarital counseling can help.

    You may ask, “How can we know for sure we’re doing what it takes to build a marriage that lasts?” That’s an important question, because the statistics are alarming. According to the CDC1, about half of all marriages end in divorce. The average marriage lasts 8 years, with 20% of marriages ending within the first 5 years (49% for co-habiting unmarried couples).

    How do you prevent your marriage from becoming a negative statistic? The good news is that there’s hope! Premarital counseling using the PREPARE-ENRICH program was developed in 1980 as a resource to help premarital couples establish strong and rewarding relationships. Since that time, more than 4,000,000 premarital and married couples have prepared for marriage or enriched their relationship through taking the P/E assessment and working with a Certified Facilitator like me attending premarital counseling. 

    What is the premarital counseling P/E assessment tool? It’s a scientifically-developed online inventory which identifies your current strengths and growth areas as a couple. Once you and your partner have each taken the assessment, I’ll then schedule a series of feedback sessions with you to help you understand your results. You'll learn important evidence-based relationship skills. From beginning to end, this premarital counseling program is designed to be comfortable, relaxed and even fun.

    The PREPARE/ENRICH premarital counseling program has a proven track record of helping couples prepare for many of the ups and downs of marriage. It stimulates honest, open dialogue, and teaches you how to communicate in ways that are mutually affirming. Imagine having constructive discussions which produce a win-win outcome for both of you. Using our assessment tools, you’ll find it easier to understand your partner and be understood by them. This will foster a deeper, healthier relationship and sustain it over the years.

    With PREPARE/ENRICH, you will:

    • Identify your strengths as a couple and build new ones
    • Strengthen your communication skills
    • Uncover stressful areas and process them successfully
    • Learn to fight fair- to resolve your conflicts instead of making them worse
    • Comfortably discuss financial issues
    • Understand and appreciate personality differences
    • Establish personal, couple and family goals

     

    For over 12 years now, I’ve successfully navigated many engaged couples through this phenomenal premarital counseling program, and have witnessed them go on to have incredible and satisfying marriages. Contact us today to sign up for the PREPARE/ENRICH premarital counseling program, and begin your journey towards building the marriage you’ve always dreamed you could have!

  • David CorbittWelcome to COMPASSION Christian Counseling. I'm so glad you found us!

    I believe in relationships. My vision is to see each couple become all that God intended them to be: vessels to reflect love in one another. This is why I became a Counselor, because my calling, my passion, is to minister to relationships.  It has been tremendously rewarding to support others as they overcome their struggles and find restoration for their lives. 

    Hello, my name is David Corbitt, and I’ve been a Relationship Counselor for over 12 years here in Colorado Springs, Colorado. I offer counseling for married, pre-married, unmarried and dating couples.

    Relationships are important to God. We were created to be social beings. God chooses the analogy of marriage- the Bridegroom and the Bride- as His most intimate comparison of His relationship with His Church.

    When relationships are at their best, they are beyond rewarding. They can be a shelter from life’s storms, a sanctuary where two people abiding together in love become so much more than the sum of their parts.  A place where you feel safe to be yourself, to blossom and grow into who you both were destined to be. You feel complete in one another.

    Sometimes though, life can get in the way, and place strains on our relationships. Instead of feeling like a blessing to us, they feel more like a burden. Rather than pouring life into us, they can seem like a constant drain. But, thankfully, it doesn’t have to stay this way.

    And that’s where counseling can help. Relationship counseling can press the reset button, offer you a fresh perspective, and empower you with new tools to enrich your union beyond where it was before, and into new heights you didn’t think possible. Things really can be better, and you can receive new hope for a new day.

    Contact me today to schedule your first session. Your initial consultation is completely free of charge. I am looking forward to getting to know you, and together we will explore how best to assist you through our counseling program. Let’s get started.
