Benefits of Marriage Counseling
You and your partner can learn to say what you need, without criticizing or blaming. You feel empowered to express your feelings instead of holding them in till you explode.
Rediscover Yourself in Relation to Your Partner
In the day to day routine of life, it’s easy to lose sight of who you are. Therapy helps you reconnect with your values, needs, and desires. You can enjoy being seen, understood, and loved for who you are.
Identifies Current Relationship Patterns
Marriage counseling helps you explore your typical patterns of interacting in your relationship. From there, you learn tools to increase connection and interact in ways to build a loving relationship.
New View of Your Partner
The slight distance that marriage counseling provides, helps you see the positive traits your partner has. Stepping out of the fight ring is a step to remembering what drew you together, and what qualities you still admire.
Increase Hope for the Future
Especially if you and your partner have been through an affair, or hit a rough patch, marriage counseling can reignite hope for your future as a couple. Couples therapy helps couples process feelings of hurt, betrayal, and broken trust after infidelity. Through counseling, couples can move toward forgiveness, reconciliation, and rebuilding trust.
Couples Counseling Can Help
You can have the loving, committed, and healthy relationship you long for.
When you are in a marriage or relationship that isn’t working, you feel alone and disconnected.
You’re stuck on a roller coaster of ups and downs, and you can’t see a way off. We help couples work through gridlock and rebuild connections for a future of happiness.
Perhaps you feel constantly criticized, like you can’t do anything right. It might be hard to remember the last time you were intimate with your partner.
Has your partner broken your trust through betrayal or infidelity? Or, are you fearful your partner will leave you?
Couples often find that over time, the passion and excitement that drew them together dulls or turns sour. New conflicts crop up, and once loving couples begin patterns of criticizing, defending or attacking. Fights over money, sex, chores, or parenting drown out the happy times.
Or, you may have just drifted apart and begun to feel more like roommates than lovers. You may parent together, but otherwise just exist in the same space. Affection is rare, and meaningful conversation has disappeared.
Whether distressed or distant, you find that your relationship is no longer giving you the support, love, and intimacy you crave.
If you wish you could feel close and connected to your partner again, then marriage counseling can help. It is tough for couples to change negative patterns of relating on their own.
Our experienced couple’s counselors help couples or spouses stop their negative cycles of blame and helps them learn new ways to communicate.
For bored or distant couples, marriage counseling can help you appreciate each other and engage more fully in the relationship. Through counseling, you can rebuild intimacy and emotional closeness.
Marriage counseling or couples counseling can be the key to revive your relationship and build love for a lifetime.

Love relationships have immense power to harm through intense emotional pain, or to heal us through safety, value, and appreciation. If your bond with your partner has been disrupted, you may be feeling fear, insecurity, or anger. This can cause you or your partner to engage unhealthy patterns in response like shutting down, reacting angrily, or ignoring. Over time, these patterns become habits that can be difficult to change on your own.
