Journey through Life, PLLC believes it is never too late to restore a marriage or relationship. Because relationships have such unique dynamics and challenges, working closely with a caring therapist can mend yours in ways you never would imagine.

We have found over the years of providing couples counseling there are key steps to work through in healing a broken marriage or relationship. These steps will help you gain an initial understanding of the reconciliation process.

  1. Stabilize the relationship immediately by establishing safety, security, education, and direction.
  2. Determine if any unresolved childhood and/or current problems are interfering with the marriage.
  3. Identify what people need to change within themselves whether their spouse ever decides to change or not.
  4. Identify existing, unhealthy communication patterns.
  5. Teach healthy communication and problem-solving skills.
  6. Work on forgiveness, building trust and healing the relationship.
