“The best is yet to come”
In today’s fast-paced culture, many couples often become preoccupied with just getting through the stressors of the day, and they often feel frustrated that they have little time for themselves, or each other. Some of these stressors may encompass things like poor communication, which often leads to low intimacy, a lack of emotional connection, financial difficulties, or unhealthy boundaries, particularly within blended families.
If negative behaviors are not identified and addressed, many couples unfortunately become frustrated, and find themselves on the steps of a courthouse, rather than the steps of a counselor’s office.
Many marriages that have hit a roadblock did not get there suddenly, but rather over time—and often over the course of many years. Many couples see the danger signs in their relationship, but choose to ignore the “trouble spots” which lead them to a dead-end road, all the while wondering how they got there. Marriage counseling requires a lot of work, and both spouses must be willing to work at it. As it is with many things in life, when something is broken, it takes time and work to fix it. You must be willing to put forth your energy and resources, and you must be willing to invest in what lies ahead of you and learn from what is behind you. I can help you through this process, so you can create new—more fulfilling—chapters of your marriage.
