The One-Person Roadmap to Improving a Marriage

Work On Your Marriage NOW
Without Your Spouse
Having to Participate

Transformation is very possible with ONLY you involved.
But, you'll need a roadmap and enough understanding
of your marriage to create lasting, positive change.

A Roadmap Designed for:
Self Improvement,
Marriage Improvement,
and Jump Starting Marriage Counseling
(for Couples Who Choose That Path)

There is A Lot We Unknowingly Participate in Doing, or Avoiding,
That Co-Creates Our Stuckness.

Get a deep dive on the curious, paradoxical, frustrating and fascinating world of married life, from the research and every day experiences of couples therapists. Without assuming anything bad about your spouse, nor offering any suggestions that may backfire, you are given a clear, sensible, safe road for improving your marriage.

How Bad Is Your Marriage?

We dive deep into married life in a fascinating, engaging way. You'll begin to see your own role in the marriage and appreciate the path we're setting for you to make positive changes.

Hard Problems

Abuse. Affairs. Addictions. This section may not apply to you but it's very likely you have a friend, coworker, or family member dealing with one of these. You may wish to listen and learn. If you are in one of these scenarios, either as the one doing the behaviors or married to someone, we offer some useful ideas on how to keep your marriage healthy, even though you can't control your spouse.

Emotional Self Work in Marriage

Marriage is one of the best ways to test our emotional limits because it's inherently the most intimate and therefore challenging of all human relationships. Coworkers, friends and even family (when we're grown up) don't begin to compete with the complexity of a marriage relationship.

Time for Personal Action!

Bill Doherty has worked with groups and with hundreds of individuals in the therapy room to create what we call a Personal Agenda for Change. This is the action stage of the course when, with new insights and appreciations of your role in your marriage, you'll be walked step by step in exactly what to work on, why, and what to expect.

You Can Improve Your Marriage Today.

No matter what your marriage life has been like, we have created a safe, simple,
straightforward road map for you -the same road map we use to help so many people in our therapy offices.

"Marriage is a 'people making' machine.
Like a furnace, marriage brings out the worst in us in heated moments. It is each of our jobs to learn to understand ourselves better so that we can bring our best selves to our marriage."
