Hello and Welcome!  I am Arlene Malone, the founder of Marriage Center. Thanks for stopping by.  I'd like to share a little about myself and what I do.  I am a Christian and Licensed Professional Counselor, supervisor, and inspirational speaker. I received my Doctorate in Counseling and Psychological Studies and my Master of Arts in Community Counseling from Regent University and my Bachelor of Science in Psychology from St. Leo University.  I have also received post-graduate specialized training in methods specifically focused on helping couples thrive in their relationships.

    I am passionate about the integrity of marital relationships. Working with couples is what I love to do most.  I am committed to helping couples build a solid foundation for a strong and loving marriage. Because of my passion, specialty training in marriage counseling, and over 12 years working specifically with couples, I help husbands and wives learn to manage conflict, strengthen their friendship and emotional connection, enhance their intimacy, and communicate in ways that restore marital harmony.  So if you and your spouse are struggling to communicate, resolve problems, recover from past hurts or infidelity, restore trust and intimacy, or connect emotionally and spiritually, I can help.  Couples I work with begin to function as a unified team and experience the joy of a fulfilled marriage.  I help couples do this by providing counsel based upon Biblical principles integrated with Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Emotionally-Focused Therapy treatment methods.

    My ultimate mission is to partner with Christian couples, help them honor and glorify God, and bear witness to His love and power within their marriage relationship. I'd love to partner with you too!
