Track 2: Marriage/Relationship Repair or Mixed-Agenda Couples
(60, 75, 90, 120 min. session 1-2x a week)
For couples who both are committed to the marriage/relationship and are open to the process of change and healing. The couple may be experiencing significant issues such as infidelity, emotional divorce, separation, or discussion divorce. Some couples take advantage of this track who are dealing with moderate issues with family of origin, communication, conflict resolution, parenting issues, blended family and other struggles.
Additionally, this track is for mixed-agenda couples. Meaning one person is leaning out of the marriage and is struggling with whether to stay in or get out of the marriage. The other person is leaning in and ready to do whatever it takes to save the marriage. Over 30% of the time, couples come to therapy at this place in the relationship. Discernment Counseling is a process that creates a holding environment for the couple to understand one another and decided on whether the marriage is worth saving in the presence and with guidance from a unbiased third party.

“Sexual addiction can be understood by comparing it to other types of addictions. Individuals addicted to alcohol or other drugs, for example, develop a relationship with their “chemical(s) of choice”, a relationship that takes precedence over any and all other aspects of their lives. Addicts find they need drugs merely to feel normal. In sexual addiction, a parallel situation exists. Sex–like food or drugs in other addictions–provides the “High” and addicts become dependent on this sexual high to feel normal. They substitute unhealthy relationships for healthy ones.”
