Common Issues Christian Marriage Counseling Can Resolve

You may wish that your relationship wasn’t so difficult. You may want to learn to communicate without fighting, rekindle your romance, or gain more support from your partner. The good news is that our Christian marriage counseling in Austin can help married and unmarried couples at any stage to stabilize their relationship for a better future!

DIVORCE

One of the most challenging situations in a relationship is when one spouse wants a divorce while the other does not. Careful steps must be taken to preserve whatever remaining stability is present. I help each partner consider the specific reasons for what they want and the feelings of the other person.

INFIDELITY

Infidelity is another deeply troubling and difficult issue to deal with in a relationship. I do not take sides or point fingers. The truth is that both people may have some degree of responsibility. I will help you discover the next steps that you need to take as a couple to rebuild trust.

SEX & INTIMACY

Sex is one of the most important things in a relationship. It can be exciting, complicated, and frustrating. It can be quite difficult when two people value sex differently. I will help you learn to talk openly about your sexual desires and preferences to create more intimacy within sex.

BLENDED FAMILIES

Some common issues that occur within blended families are a lack of parenting experience, abrupt changes in the family dynamic, difficulty in children accepting a new parent, and changes in family traditions. Counseling can break down barriers and help form family bonds.

COMMUNICATION

Effective communication is important for all relationships. Through Christian counseling, you’ll learn the skills needed to communicate so you can have the marriage you’ve always wanted. As your counselor, I’ll help you establish a better dialogue with your partner for a more emotionally fulfilling relationship.

COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT AUSTIN MARRIAGE COUNSELING

WHAT IS THE COST

A 50-minute individual session is $150.

A 75-minute couples session is $225.

If you are not able to afford this, then please still call us. It is important to me that anyone who needs counseling gets the help that they can afford.

DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?

Yes, I accept Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO at this time.

DOES CHRISTIAN MARRIAGE COUNSELING ALWAYS WORK?

If an individual is truly open and ready to address their own issues, then therapy is highly beneficial. However, if an individual is not, then therapy can actually create a negative experience for them.

IS THERAPY CONFIDENTIAL?

Yes. Information is not disclosed without written permission. However, there are a few exceptions to this rule. Exceptions include suspected child abuse and dependent adult or elder abuse

WILL CHRISTIAN MARRIAGE COUNSELING MAKE THINGS WORSE

No. Nothing is changing, we are simply discussing the issues that the couple has not been able to address on their own. However, if both people do not agree with any suggested change, it can cause a conflict that needs to be resolved. Any suggested changes are for the betterment of the relationship.

WHEN CAN I EXPECT RESULTS?

If an individual is open and ready to address their own issues, then you can expect to feel results during the first session. Once you start following through with what is discussed within the session, you will begin to feel better about your situation. This is then built upon and repeated in follow-up sessions.

DO YOU TAKE SIDES?

No. As an impartial couples counselor, I do not side with either party -- I side with the truth. At times, depending on the issue being discussed, it may feel like I am focusing more on one partner or the other depending on the context of that issue.

WHAT IS CHRISTIAN MARRIAGE COUNSELING?

Christian marriage counseling uses the science of psychology within the context of our Christian faith to address issues. I believe that we cannot achieve true healing without Jesus Christ.  He is the true counselor. I integrate best practices in the field of counseling with our faith in order to bring about healing. Each client is different in regards to what degree they are comfortable incorporating their faith into the counseling process. We’ll discuss this upfront and find out what is right for you!

One of the most difficult things about beginning counseling is taking that first step and reaching out to a counselor. We may not know each other yet, but I hope that you will become more comfortable with me and my process as you read through this site. Please get in touch with me if you have any questions.
