Marriage & Family
The Marriage You Want
We see so many women, men, and couples who have just about given up on their marriages.
Most of them have really tried to fix things. They've talked with each other about it. They've argued. They've gone for weeks and months silently enduring it. They've bought books, maybe even tried counseling. But the problems won't just go away, and things aren't getting any better.
You don't want to give up, don't want to go the divorce route like so many others. But you know you can't live like this forever.
Talk to us - by yourself, or with your spouse. Either way, we can help.
Before you do anything else, talk with us.
Figuring out what's really going on in your marriage should be simple, but it's not. Marriage problems don't just suddenly appear -- they grow slowly over time, the product of small resentments and miscommunications that grow into a thick web that's very difficult to untangle on your own. That's where talking to the right professional can really help.
When we talk, we'll quickly target the root of the problem. We'll help you figure out exactly what is going on in your marriage, and why.
Understanding alone won't fix things, but it will open up solutions you weren't aware of before. Once the confusion is gone, that awful feeling of being "stuck" is gone, too. You'll be moving forward. Change can still be difficult - it almost always is - but we will be there to guide you, every step of the way.
Don't put it off any longer. Call now to set up a confidential appointment for yourself, or with your spouse - we're easy to talk to.
Intimacy and Sex
More often than not, the people we see have concerns about intimacy and sex in their relationships.
Relationships change over time. Most of the time, the changes happen slowly, almost imperceptibly. Many people seem to wake up one day to find something has changed in the relationship, something is different in the way they are communicating with each other, something has changed in their sex life.
Sometimes, the relationship changes more suddenly, and there may be a more urgent need to find out what happened, what has changed, what is going on.
For many couples, there may have been no real change at all – it’s just become more and more difficult for one or both of them to live a life without a deep and satisfying intimate and sexual relationship.
Special Marriage Concerns
Having the marriage you want can be difficult, but some situations can make a marriage much more challenging.
We can provide expert guidance in overcoming the challenges in these special situations, including:
- Marrying Again
Making marriage really work the second (and more) time around.
- Blended and Step-Families
Handling the very difficult challenges in your new world of "my kids", "your kids", and maybe even "our kids".
- The Interfaith Marriage
Religious or cultural differences can present real challenges, particularly when children are involved. We can help sort out the issues, discuss the differences, and arrive at resolutions that work for everyone.
- The Alcoholic Marriage
Handling the special challenges that arise when alcohol or other addictions affect a marriage and family.
- After an Affair
An affair can rock the foundation of a marriage to its core. We can help you make sense of what happened, decide whether to try again, heal the marriage (if that's what you both want), and heal yourself regardless.
