As a Licensed Professional Clinical Counselors, our goal is to help you uncover your true potential and lead a life that is worth celebrating! While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand and resolve challenges in your life. By applying therapy approaches and techniques, we will uncover long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be preventing you from experiencing a more meaningful and enriching life. In a safe, trusting, and nurturing environment, clients are able to work through long-standing issues from the past, find peace in the present, and solutions and empowerment for the future.
The Marriage and Family Institute (formerly Agape Counseling & Consultation Services, LLC) also believes in providing services that are holistic in nature, where all components of the human person are addressed, including psychological, spiritual, and physical.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to make a change in your life, please contact us to see how we may be of service to you!

"The Marriage and Family Institute has been a life-changing experience for my family and I. My husband and I started working with Dr. Cordonnier after discovery of recent infidelity. The staff was empathetic, compassionate, and helped us work through the trauma in our relationship and helped us rebuild a sustainable relationship worth celebrating."
"Our family started working with Dr. Sarah to help navigate our child's severe behavioral issues. Dr. Sarah engaged in play therapy and family therapy with us. She was empathetic and kind and even collaborated with our pediatrician for ongoing treatment recommendations."
"I started services at the Marriage and Family Institute after the recent loss of my wife to cancer. The staff was kind, encouraging as I engaged in EMDR, and helped processing the grief and loss I had been holding for several months. Even though my wife is no longer with me, I feel hopeful knowing that I am not alone on this journey."
