Do any of these scenarios sound familiar?

Marriage Counseling for the Long-Timers

You have been married for a while now but find yourselves fighting over the same things over and over again. You are emotionally exhausted from trying to manage your marriage on top of all of your other responsibilities. The romance disappeared a long time ago. Sometimes you struggle to even like your spouse, let alone love him or her, and you wish things could go back to the way they were.

Though you don’t want to give up on your marriage, you wonder if there’s even anything left worth fighting for. You can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, and you don’t know how to change it or fix it. You feel stuck. There doesn’t seem to be any hope for you.

I get it. This isn’t what you pictured when you said your vows, and it is painful. You want peace, and you want hope. You want to feel valued, like you matter to your spouse and your family. You want your marriage to come alive again. There¬†is hope for you, and I can help.

Marriage Counseling for Infidelity

Your spouse had an affair. You are devastated, hurt, and angry. You want to remain in your marriage, but you just can’t see past this enormous betrayal.

Can you ever trust him or her again? Will you always live in fear of this happening again if you stay? Your spouse is remorseful, but can you believe that? Of course you don’t know what to believe anymore. How could the person you love hurt you so badly?

Betrayal by the person you love the most is painful and confusing. It is a scary and emotional time, but there is hope for you. And there is hope for your marriage.

Marriage Counseling for Newlyweds

Maybe you are only recently married. You had the Pinterest perfect wedding, you have the Joanna Gaines style house, and on the outside everything looks great. But behind closed doors….you are disappointed.

Let’s work together to take a realistic look at your expectations for marriage and what we can do to grow your marriage into one of daily joy, regardless of your circumstances.
