Free 50 minute walk-ins on Valentine’s Day!

Central Indiana couples can invest in the health of their relationship all month long by attending a free Couple’s Checkup screening offered by the Counseling Center at Christian Theological Seminary (CTS). Free 50 minute sessions will be offered on a walk-in basis, Valentine’s Day, February 14th through the 16th. Complimentary screenings are also available by appointment throughout February.

“Even the healthiest relationships encounter bumps along the way,” says CTS Counseling Center Director Suzanne Coyle, Associate Professor of Pastoral Theology and Marriage and Family Therapy at CTS. “These free sessions introduce couples to the tools they can use to get over those bumps and strengthen bonds well into the future.”

To help start the conversation with your partner and see where you’re at, Dr. Coyle has put together a few questions.
