About Us

The Couples Resource Center was founded in 1985 by Sylvia Randall, Ph.D. and Michael Lawwill, MFT. The goal is to offer couples opportunities to improve communication and enhance their relationship through either individual work as a couple with a counselor or in a small group setting. These opportunities were designed to accommodate a range of couples from those in crisis to those who wanted to enhance an already satisfying relationship.

The Couples Resource Center staff includes the following individuals:
