Marriage Counseling & Couples Therapy

It can happen in any relationship. The day-to-day grind of work, school, family and other responsibilities can cause a shift or loss of focus. Small failures to communicate can build and trust can start to crumble. What were once minor disagreements can become a source of ever-escalating conflict. And once your relationship starts moving in that direction, you can find it difficult to stop the momentum. We can help you.


We provide comprehensive counseling services to couples experiencing difficulty because of:

  • Infidelity of one or both parties

  • Loss of physical and/or emotional intimacy, including challenges stemming from an earlier history of childhood sexual abuse, physical or emotional trauma, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), or substance abuse

  • Lack or loss of attachment

  • Depression, anxiety or panic attacks

  • Loss of a job or chronic joblessness
