Your marriage is in a rough place. You need support.
Maybe your partner isn’t willing to go to counseling with you. Maybe you are not sure if you want to continue in your marriage. This can be a lonely, frustrating and confusing place.
We will work together to explore your relationship. We will look at areas you can grow in while working towards making a decision about what direction you want to go. You will have support in whatever decision you make.
Often, well meaning family and friends try to influence you towards what they think is best. I will not pressure you to make a specific choice. We will look at all options from all angles. Once you decide what is best for you, we will move forward.
Should I stay or should I go? Those are not the only options. You may decide to wait for a while or physically separate while you each work on yourselves. It is my hope to help you succeed in your goals. One person can make changes that effect the relationship in dramatic ways. I am also aware that one person cannot do everything. At some point the other partner needs to put in effort to change. There are times where the best choice may be divorce.
If you decide you want to end your marriage, we will work towards doing that in a healthy way. Although divorce may be the option that is needed, it is not without heartbreak and complications. We will sort through these together.
If you decide that you want to stay in your marriage, we will work on you growing as a person. We will look at new ways to understand your partner and how communicate more effectively. The efforts of just one person can cause a marriage to become healthier. Relationships work best when both partners are engaged and growing, but one person can cause significant change.
