Bayside Marriage Coaching connects seasoned married couples (coaches) that have weathered the storms of marriage with younger couples (recipient couples) that are seeking encouragement in their marriage.

Through thought-provoking questions and conversations (not counseling), the marriage coach couple lovingly guides the recipient couple toward their goals in marriage and helps equip them with tools for building a thriving relationship.

Come hear real stories from real couples on our staff. They will keep it vulnerable and authentic as they share how they have learned to lean into God through difficult times and grown closer as a couple and stronger in their faith through various challenges and struggles they have faced. We will also spend an hour in small group discussion where you will have the opportunity to talk with other couples, gain insight, and connect with others.

The Trust-Based Relational Intervention (TBRI) is a unique intervention model created by developmental psychologists Dr. Karyn Purvis and Dr. David Cross, founders of the Institute of Child Development at Texas Christian University. It is based on more than a decade of research and hands on work with vulnerable children and their families.

TBRI offers in-depth training for parents of children with trauma-based behavioral issues. Children that have experienced abuse, neglect, abandonment, and/or trauma in early development can develop behaviors that can be confusing, frustrating and difficult to manage even for the most patient and loving parents. Come join us and become empowered, connected, and learn lifelong solutions that will build a stronger parent-child relationship.
