Hope Couples Counseling

Faith. Work. Love.
Welcome to Hope Couple's Counseling Website!

What is Hope Counseling?

The Hope Focused approach works to build hope for couples using positive interventions, a short-term strategic approach that is tailored to the relationship needs of the couple.  It is based on dozens of research studies and has been published in several books by Dr. Ripley and Dr. Worthington.

We started with just a professor and a few students, working out of a small room in 2007. All these years later, we have served over 500 couples to repair and improve their relationship, written numerous articles and professional scientific presentations on our couples' experiences, and published a book about it.
