Counseling

Life Church - Couples & Marriage Counseling

Common problems brought to Marriage Counseling. Do any of these sound familiar?

  • Having the same fight over and over with no real resolution
  • Not trusting your significant other
  • Not feeling appreciated, heard, or valued
  • Even the tiniest things spark an argument
  • You don’t argue anymore. You are like “ships passing in the night”
  • You’ve stopped having sex because you are so hurt and angry
  • Believing that marriage counseling can’t help your “deep problems”
  • You feel stuck. You ask yourself, “Should I stay or go?”
  • Nothing you do seems to help your relationship feel safe, loving, and secure

If you answered yes to any of the above questions, then marriage counseling can help. Relationships can be difficult to navigate, especially when you don’t have the tools to cope. Your relationship doesn’t have to stay this way. You don’t have to struggle alone. Life Church has a team of experienced marriage counselors that are willing to help.
