Dating & Premarital Counseling
Building Strong Christ-Centered Relationships
Have you ever wondered if your relationship was headed in the right direction? If you are struggling with intimacy issues, remember that before you can be intimate with one another, you must first be willing to be intimate with God. Our Christian Counselors use a lens of hope, faith and love to help you examine your personal relationship. We work with you to understand where you are holding back and walk beside you as you let go of the fear that prevents you from getting closer to God and others.
You may be struggling with issues like trust, fidelity, and honesty. These are tough things to talk about and without proper guidance, you and your partner can find yourselves in heated emotional battle struggling for power. We rely on God to guide these difficult discussions. When we use biblical principles in these instances, we can apply His word to our earthly conflicts and find peaceful resolutions. As Christian Counselors, we understand that every intimate relationship is like a three-legged stool with God as the third leg. Without it, the stool will fall.
God’s in the business of healing. We have seen Him restore countless relationships that were scarred and broken. The work isn’t always easy. But we promise to be with you every step of the way. Whether you are coming back from the brink of disaster or just facing a life transition, we are here to help you move forward toward restoration. Sometimes it is necessary for one partner to seek additional counseling for separate issues so that you are both whole and well when you come together.
If you are getting married, congratulations! But remember that even the strongest relationships can falter if they are built on sand. Our Christian Counselors help you fortify your foundation through Christ. We make sure any cracks in the foundation of trust and faith are filled in before you take your vows. We talk about the difficulties married couples face in today’s culture of infidelity and compromised values. As a team, we work with you to set goals for communication and discuss the roles and expectations you have for your relationship as you become husband and wife. Ultimately, we want to help you move into this next phase of your relationship with a better understanding of each other and what God wants from you as a married couple.
