The Marriage and Family Centers are counseling, training, and education centers which are focused on enhancing and restoring lives, strengthening and rebuilding marriages, and fostering and renewing family life.
The Centers operate as clinical training facilities for advanced graduate students in The Marriage and Family Therapy Master of Arts Degree Program at Evangelical Seminary. A qualified intern therapist will be working with you as your counselor. Intern therapists (similar to intern doctors) receive weekly supervision for their cases by AAMFT Approved Supervisors. You will receive quality care!
The Centers offer a variety of counseling services: Marital and Couple Counseling, Family Counseling, Individual Counseling, and Premarital Counseling.
We address a variety of issues, including but not limited to:
- marital and couple difficulties
- marriage enrichment

In 2002, Evangelical Seminary began its Master’s Program in Marriage and Family Therapy. Part of this program requires students to do a Practicum/Internship, where intern therapists must accumulate a minimum of 300 hours working with clients over a certain period of time.
In order to help accommodate this requirement, Evangelical opened The Marriage and Family Center in Lititz in October 2004. Then in May 2006, we opened the Wenger Marriage and Family Center in Myerstown (formerly known as the Wenger Family Counseling Center).
We are grateful for the opportunity to have served the hundreds of client units during our rather short history, and expect to continue to serve many more clients in the future.
