Biblical Counseling in Counseling as a Couple

Dr. Steve Viars December 6, 2022

Jim & Caroline Newheiser join the podcast to talk with us about counseling as a couple. For Jim & Caroline, counseling together has been something they’ve done since the beginning of their counseling, but for others, this might be a new idea. The Newheisers discuss the benefits of having both a male and a female in the counseling room and how they both contribute to the session. They believe this is especially beneficial when it comes to marriage and pre-marriage counseling.
