COUPLES COUNSELING - Marriage can feel lonely, your spouse may feel more like a roommate than a lover or you may feel like you fight more than you talk. Betrayal can threaten the future of your marriage. Factors like money, stress from jobs or parenting, communication difficulties, and conflict  can contribute to relational dissatisfaction. 

Divorce is not inevitable! Even relationships shredded by infidelity can be remade, better than ever. Communication can be restored and hurtful behavior patterns can change. Together we will identify your unique goals and develop a plan to build a stronger, more intimate relationship. 

FAMILIES - Families sometimes find themselves overwhelmed by unforeseen circumstances or blindsided by changes in a family member. Meeting with the whole family can identify problematic relational patterns which can then be addressed. Occasionally, a few tweaks in family boundaries brings relief.

MEDICAL FAMILY THERAPY - Have you or a loved one received a devastating diagnosis? Is your family struggling with special needs? Are you questioning your faith or God's goodness in the face of despair, impending death or disability? Are you rebelling against the labels that come with a diagnosis?

Families experiencing a special need or medical event may benefit from the support of a therapist with specialized training. Regardless of who has been diagnosed, each family member is affected and each may react differently. Medical family therapy provides a safe, hopeful place to examine feelings, coping and sources of support. 

INDIVIDUAL THERAPY - Did you enter marriage with the desire to be biblically submissive and now find yourself feeling lonely in your marriage, more like a roommate than a spouse? Do you feel like you're alone in parenting your children? Do you desire to be cherished and intimately understood by your partner, but feel disconnected and lonely?

As a pastor and a licensed marriage and family therapist, I can help you explore your current circumstances, examine your values and role in the conflict, and begin to make changes that produce better communication and boundaries with your spouse. In sessions alone or with your spouse, we can identify and implement changes that move your relationship from feeling lonely to connected and fulfilling.
