Welcome to Pax Cares U. 

A space created for you to continue your healing journey outside of the traditional therapy space. 

About Pax Cares U

The Pax Cares U courses are created and taught by the professional counselors at Pax Renewal Center. With each course, you will be guided by one of our counselors through the adjoining workbook material to learn how to maintain healthy relationships, establish boundaries, and practice healthy coping mechanisms as well as discover how to implement them into your own life. 

Learn At Your
Own Pace

Learn anytime, anywhere. You may resume exactly where you left off, with no limits on how many times you view or review lesson materials.


You can’t change what you first don’t acknowledge. 

The Marriage Checkup course will help both spouses discover their strengths and growth areas and guide you in creating a plan to improve the love in your marriage to result in marital satisfaction and security.
