Marriage & Relationships

Our counselors are specially trained in providing a high level of care. Your marriage is worth it!

Marriage Counseling

Therapy that focuses on the intimate couple relationship is often called “couples counseling” or “marriage counseling/therapy”. The primary goal is to assess and help the relationship to grow strong. Typically, the relationship is seen as the “client”, and individuals are challenged to grow to help the relationship be strong. Skilled marriage counselors (often called “marriage therapists”) are trained in specific theories, techniques, and methods designed to help assess and bring about healthy change in individuals and relationships.

Marriage Counseling
isn’t just for couples in crisis.

We work with couples seeking guidance from a marriage expert for a host of reasons. We work with:

  • couples seeking to grow great marriages
  • couples struggling with sexual issues in their marriage
  • couples struggling to keep their marriage alive
  • couples in crisis due to affairs, addiction, separation, etc.
  • couples who have already divorced and want to explore reconciliation

A typical session

In sessions, we aim to create a relaxing, no-expectations environment where you (and your partner) can begin to discuss topics that have been difficult at home. No two individuals or couples are exactly alike, and we are sensitive to helping you define what is “satisfying” for you. You may start to notice change after a couple of sessions or quite a few sessions – but it is important to know that this gift takes time, patience and dedication to cultivate.

Who should seek

If you feel “stuck,” frustrated, confused, or anything other than satisfied with your marriage, you may benefit from partnering with trained professionals to discuss potential for improvement. Individuals and couples may often avoid counseling due to unknown expectations; we would love to meet with you to discuss these concerns and see if Building Intimate Marriages would be a good fit for you.
