Need Marriage Counseling? 

Research has shown that the following are signs of relationship deterioration.  When these signs are present, there is a greatly increased risk of break up or divorce.

 

  • feeling distant
  • avoiding each other
  • increased arguing
  • lack of affection
  • sarcasm and hostility


If one or more of those signs are present in your marriage,  start taking action now!

Whether your relationship is in a crisis or you have been struggling to get along for a long time, a professional therapist can be a great source of support, strength and growth.  Having a highly trained and objective marriage counselor can help you work through anger or frustration, and find workable solutions. With the help of marriage counseling you can come out of a difficult situation feeling more intimate and committed than ever before. 

For most couples, the real problem is not incompatability, it is a lack of skills such as communication skills, conflict resolution skills, or intimacy skills.  The good news is that these skills can be taught.   

If you are motivated to work on the relationship, marriage counseling can help you:

 

  • communicate effectively   
  • negotiate differences    
  • heal and forgive hurts from the past    
  • build trust and safety    
  • parent effectively as a team   
  • create a healthy, fulfilling, and loving relationship
