About this pro

It is our goal to help couples build a strong foundation for communication and honesty; define realistic expectations and boundaries; restore integrity and trust to the institution of marriage; and promote healthy marriages by creating an environment in which couples (both preparing for marriage and married) will have access to tools, techniques, and information that will enable them to make decisions that will foster a growing, loving, life-long marriage.

On many of those occasions I found myself doing research before having follow-up conversations to help family and friends address their cares. It was those initial breakthroughs that fueled my present desire to help people, in particular, in their desire for a happy and successful marriage.

    This is an awesome Christian-based resource for pre-engagement training, relationship counseling and more. I had the pleasure of working with Alwyn one-on-one and found him to be genuine, patient, knowledgeable and encouraging. He provided some practical tips and strategies to help me in my relationship journey. I look forward to working with him when I am ready to prepare for marriage. Thank you for everything, Alwyn!

PREPARE/ENRICH automatically tailors the content of the relationship assessment to fit each couple’s unique relationship stage and family structure

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I am an ordained Christain Minister and have been providing Christain Counseling Services to couples since 2003. I am also Clinically trained and hold a Master’s Degree in Community Counseling with specialization in Marriage and Family Therapy. In my studies I studied counseling techniques that are not only utilized in counseling for couples, individuals, groups, but also for addiction and other mental health counseling needs. As an ordained Christian minister I can, when appropriate, combine clinical techniques and theory with Biblical teachings for clients whose beliefs play an important role in their life, living, relationship, and recovery.
