New Relationships

Carry your Love Past the Honeymoon Phase

If you were just married, Congratulations! We wish you a lifetime of love and marital success. Chances are you’ve been swept up in wedding planning and enjoying your honeymoon vacation. But now that the holiday is over, real life is about to begin.

You might find yourself faced with situations that you didn’t anticipate, and you might be unsure of where to turn. Do you know exactly what you want from a marital relationship, and more importantly, how to get it? Maybe you’re happier than you’ve ever been, but you want to make sure that you have the skills and wisdom to make that happiness last.

Fix bad habits before they start! Whether you realize it yet or not, all marriages have conflict — and that’s healthy. It’s not conflict that leads to a separation of intimacy, it’s dealing with conflict in the wrong ways. Learn the healthy ways!

We can help you explore and discuss important topics and issues with your new spouse in a safe and encouraging environment. This includes exploring difficult topics before they become major issues. We also will help you learn how to keep your newlywed passion, build a healthy and realistic marriage, and provide you with tools and techniques to deal with everyday conflict.

Our goal is to help you build a foundation that enables a lifetime of marital bliss.

Common reasons couples attend

Are you really hearing each other?

Good communication is the cornerstone to building and maintaining any healthy relationship. It creates a sense of intimacy that can be shared throughout a lifetime, and it’s nearly impossible for any relationship to thrive without it. Whether you would like to improve your conflict resolution or experience a deeper connection with your spouse, you can achieve it through communication. Thankfully, it can be learned!

We can help you develop your communication skills so that you and your partner can establish and sustain a relationship filled with closeness, love and respect.

How do we bring our families together?

It’s becoming more and more common for men and women to enter into second marriages with children from their first marriage, but that doesn’t make it any easier. This dynamic brings new and unique challenges for your blended family — how do you teach your children a new set of rules based on compromises with your new spouse? Will you share authority in parenting matters? It can be challenging for stepparents to earn the respect and love of stepchildren that were subjected to a painful divorce. Holidays, family gatherings and special events provide a whole new set of challenges to navigate. While all of these tests can certainly be stressful for parents, the most vital matter is providing a safe, loving atmosphere for the kids who run the risk of being caught in the middle.

We can help you create the unity and boundaries necessary for the best possible environment for your kids and teach you the skills you need to bring together a blended family with affection instead of tension.

How do we set boundaries with within our families?

A marriage is more than a relationship with a spouse — it is the uniting of two families and the creation of a new one. It can be complicated trying to set boundaries with the in-laws as you start growing a new family with your spouse. How do you manage everyone’s expectations around holidays, birthdays and family traditions? These are common challenges, and in fact a recent study found that over 60% of couples felt that friction with their in-laws caused them long-term stress. But while these struggles are common, we believe that they are far from inevitable.

We can help you learn how to create balanced, stable and happy relationships with extended family that will bless your marriage instead of strain it.

How well do you know yourself?

There is no one else quite like you. You are a unique individual who has been developing over time and through all your life experiences. Your mix of hopes, dreams, fears, quirks, habits and personality is unmatched…but have you really taken the time to really get to know and understand yourself? Do you ever find yourself asking why you behave a certain way? Focusing internally to increase self-awareness will help you understand what shapes your perspective, why you react as you do, and why other people “just don’t get it” when something seems so clear to you. Understanding yourself will revolutionize your behavior and relationships will others and we can help you!

We will guide you through a process where you and your spouse will come to understand yourselves individually, understand each other and learn how to more effectively grow together throughout life.

Do you miss that special closeness?

That spark. That connection. That desire to be close. Maybe it came easy when you first started dating or were newlyweds, but now it’s like there’s a space between you, and you’re not sure how to get through it. Maybe your needs for physical intimacy aren’t being met, or maybe it’s emotional intimacy you crave. If the stresses and demands of life have left no time for maintaining your connection, there are many ways to rekindle and sustain a passionate relationship.

We help couples rediscover their connection with each other and recapture intimacy in their relationship. We can help you.

We cannot express how thankful we are for this program. In 2014, it came to light that my husband, Matt was struggling with an addiction to alcohol.
