Deciding whether to mend or end your marriage is a tender and complex decision.  Today we speak with Brian Burns about Discernment Counseling and how it is a safe and gentle process that brings immense value to the couple during this difficult time.

Brian walks us through how Discernment Counseling works, the reason it is a short term process, under 2 months and how it differs in many ways from Marriage Counseling.  The goal of this approach is very simply clarity and confidence for each member of the couple.  He explains how there is often a ‘lean in’ spouse and a ‘lean out’ spouse, how meeting with each individually and together makes the perfect recipe for both honesty and transparency.
