Intensive Program

There is sometimes a need to provide counseling services in a more concentrated format. The most popular format is our Twelve Day Intensive.

Programs can include a flexible format, housing and food, and Daily sessions. This program is great for those traveling long distances, returning or furloughed missionaries, individuals on Sabbatical or individuals needing to get away from a stressful environment.

For more information, call Bob Peach at (937) 384-6920.


Each individual or couple needs to talk by phone with the Counselor, Bob Peach, to determine the interests and concerns with which the participant person or couple wishes to deal. Advance psychological testing and information gathering (if time permits) will be discussed with the participant.

This preparation allows us to design an intensive program to best meet the needs and expectations of the client.
