Church Retreats


There is a call in churches to support couples and families in more ways. One way we want to help is making our couple trainings more accessible for your church.

Bringing the Training to You: At Core Values Counseling, we want to serve your church by bringing our retreat for couples and individuals to you. We take on program development and join your vision for your church retreat. We will work with you to make this the experience you are looking for. All you have to do is get the people there! Let us do the heavy lifting and ensure a powerful, life-changing experience for your couples.

No matter what stage of life couples are at; engaged, newlyweds, or married 10, 20, 35 or 50 years, they are building a legacy! Couples who know their personal core values; the way God created them to show up in the world, are able to combine their God-breathed giftedness into a powerful vision for their lives, their families and build a strong legacy for the future.

We provide our retreats to churches at very affordable rates to ensure access, contact us so we can begin the conversation to plan the best retreat to fit your needs.

bobwalkerx200With many marriages ending in divorce, we need more people like Eric and Sabrina Walters who speak to the heart about God’s design for successful marriages. Their Marriage Conference, Enticing Love, provided us with both biblical perspective and open discussions that challenged our people to live out God’s design for marriages that work.  As a team the Walters share personal insights bringing spiritual principles to real life.  Their presentation is a well developed program providing immediate benefit and life long resources through their recently released book “Enticing Love: Real Hope for Real Relationships,” which opened our eyes to how God has “wired” each of us as individuals and as a result, how we can best encourage, relate to and communicate with our partner. We have already invited them back for spring of 2016.

Heath and well being during the COVID-19 Pandemic


PLEASE CALL 503-869-8108

During this time of uncertainty and the world feeling upside down, we want you to know we are here for you.

Anxiety, depression, PTSD, and relational triggers are at an all-time high!

Anxiety is out of control. When we hear so much bad news and we have no idea when this pandemic will begin to reverse, it can rattle even the calmest among us, but for people who already struggle with anxiety, it can be crippling. Whether you are new to the emotion or it is an old bedfellow, talking to someone and finding ways to cope and move forward can be incredibly helpful.

Depression is also something that is normal when we stop all normal activities, find ourselves homeschooling our kids, working from home, in isolation, or are grieving the loss of a job, loss of your health, or worse yet, loss of a loved one. Maybe you feel like you shouldn’t be depressed because you haven’t had a “major” loss, but instead, you are feeling low and out of sorts because you couldn’t go on your vacation, throw your child a birthday party, or attend Easter services. We’re here to tell you, if you are a human on planet earth, at this moment in time, you have a reason to be depressed.

If you suffer from PTSD in any form, you are probably being triggered a great deal right now. Many people are feeling triggers that are elusive. You may not even understand why you feel these triggers that cause any number of symptoms from anxiety, to panic attacks to physical issues. This is understandable. Everywhere you turn you hear of life-threatening illness, death, and loss of every kind.

Relationship distress is also a big issue right now. How could it not be? We are all working from home, navigating uncharted territory on every front and there is no end in sight.

You know you need help. You want to talk to someone, but how do you get these services when you are practicing social distancing? Online therapy, that is how we can help. Whether you need individual therapy, couples or help with your whole family, we are here for you.

We understand online therapy is different than seeing your therapist in person! However, there is some research that has found we are able to connect at a very deep level through online therapy. Not every problem is best served through online therapy. We will talk with you and assess if it is a viable option for you.

Please call us today. Whether you have insurance or not, we will do everything we can to get you the help you need.

We have several platforms to do online therapy.  Please reach out to us today.

We are here to ease your stress and give you tools to manage during this unprecedented time.
