Marriage & Relationships



It is truly surprising how long people are willing to tolerate unhappiness and lack of fulfillment in their most intimate relationships. Most people think that marriage is a fairytale where we “meet the one” and live happily ever after. The truth is that relationships take work and most marital problems are fixable — if problems are addressed before the relationship is damaged to the point of no return.
A mutually supportive, stable intimate relationship is one in which both partners do the following:

  • Express love verbally on a daily basis
  • Share a purpose for staying together
  • Share thoughts, feelings, hopes, dreams
  • Provide support for the other’s feelings
  • Express affection physically
  • Accept demands and tolerate shortcomings
  • Express love sexually
  • Create time to be alone together
  • Communicate admiration for one another
  • Express love materially by giving gifts

What We Do

Our relationship counselors start off by establishing an environment that is open, encouraging, and supportive. It is important that both people in the relationship feel comfortable and welcome. Relationship and marriage counseling helps guide clients through a process of communication and discovery: what is working, what is not working, and what can be done to make the relationship stronger, deeper, and more fulfilling for both partners. Some reasons that couples seek relationship counseling are: negative communication, being afraid to talk about issues, when you see your spouse as an antagonist, keeping secrets, or when you live in the same house but lead separate lives. These are only a few of the reasons that couples seek therapy.
