The reality of facing marriage counseling is a scary thought. Sometimes life gets in the way of a relationship. Stress weighs on people and their commitment to each other. With counseling, couples learn to communicate more effectively and manage the many stresses of life appropriately. Together, spouses learn to support each other effectively to lessen feelings of mistrust, and the hurt and frustration of miscommunication and conflict. With the support of marriage counseling, couples navigate the difficult times.
In a marriage, conflict, miscommunication, and mistrust can occur and injure even the strongest of relationships. During times of trouble, divorce may seem a viable option. For some, divorce may even seem to be the only option. However, the impact of divorce is much more heartbreaking both for spouses and for children. Marriage doesn’t have to end in Divorce. Divorce does not have to be the only option or even an option at all.
Stonebriar Counseling Associates (SCA) provides quality marriage counseling from a Christian perspective to help couples sort through challenging issues to realize that divorce is not the best option. It can be difficult to share sensitive feelings with each other, and in the presence of a counselor. However, marriage counseling is a safe place to share and work through concerns that have risen in a relationship. Like marriage, marriage counseling is a commitment to work together through differences and challenges.
Marriage counseling can give you the tools to communicate with each other effectively. Together, through marriage counseling, you can learn to share concerns and disagree in a way that each person can feel heard, respected, and validated. A marriage can not only be saved but even strengthened. Couples can return to a place of love, where there is healthy communication, trust, understanding, and appreciation between each other. Marriage is not always easy, but it is always worth it.
