Marriage Counseling

Are you exhausted from constant arguments with your spouse?

Have you grown apart and miss the intimacy you once had?

Do you worry about ending up like roommates or even think about divorce?


If you end up in a bitter argument every time you try working out your problems, it creates what is called "Anticipatory Anxiety". You fear discussing issues knowing that it will turn out poorly. So you either start avoiding issues or have a sense of hopelessness and dread in the middle of the argument.

You begin to wonder if this will ever get any better.

Can Our Marriage/Relationship be Fixed

Many couples come into counseling wondering "Can our relationship be fixed/healed/restored? You may be asking the exact same question. We have given hope to couples who argue constantly, who've said they were one step away from divorce, where one or both persons have been unfaithful, where there are values differences when raising their children, etc. From our experience, you have a great chance of making it work if you are both willing to put time and effort into the marriage and follow the process we have refined for over 15 years.
