Phil Carlson, BA

I am passionate about helping couples with their relationship issues. I love to work with couples to increase their marital satisfaction. I also help adults that are struggling with depression and anxiety.

I have over 15 years of history teaching marriage education seminars and classes, mentoring couples, and leading small groups with struggling couples. I love to integrate Christian principles into my work. I also lead a marriage ministry called Connected Marriage where I train other churches how to mentor distressed couples.
