Enrichment Coaching for Couples

Want to improve your relationship with your significant other?   Stuck on a problem or conflict?  Trying to understand how one's family history is shaping your relationship?  


It's natural to have these questions! 


It's also normal to argue or disagree on occasion. But when you find yourself at odds with your partner more frequently than not, it's time to address the situation before it gets worse.  I'll work with you and your partner to help you communicate better and work through the issues impacting your relationship.  You and your partner deserve to be happy and content with one another, and that's my aim.


To help you and your partner, I use research proven skills and strategies from PREPARE/ENRICH along with coaching principles that get results. 


Think of PREPARE/ENRICH as a "best marriage practices"  investment.  We will walk through the following areas to grow the areas that need to be strengthened.  These include:  communications, conflict resolution, partner style and habits, personal stress, financial management, leisure activities, sexuality and affection, family and friends, relationships roles, children and parenting,  spiritual beliefs,  expectations, couple and family maps, personality, and goals.  


Couples are very comfortable with the process regardless of their faith or non-faith, young or older, and whether unmarried or married.   


I recommend 3 - 6 coaching sessions at 90 minutes per session to create some really positive momentum. It's all about moving forward and getting to a healthy space where you and your partner can support and love each other walking together as a team. 


Relationships are hard work but they are absolutely worth the time and effort!  You and your partner can do it!  Let's get started.  



  1. Please e-mail or call (804-888-9900) me (Tom Barila)  to schedule a 15-minute exploratory (inquiry) conversation.   During our exploratory conversation, I'll introduce you to what the process looks like and how you will benefit from the coaching sessions.  We will also make sure there’s good chemistry and that you are comfortable that I can be a helpful coach where your situation or issue is concerned along with answering any questions you may have.  All conversations are confidential. 
  2. If at this initial exploratory conversation we decide to move forward, I’ll review our next steps, fee, duration and action plan.  
  3. By the way, I've been married for 38 years to Elizabeth and we have 2 adult children.  Learn more about Tom's coaching background: Click here...
