In counseling, through the use of the Word of God and learning each other's God-given temperament, spouses will come to understand one another's deepest needs, strengths and how to get those needs met in healthy and godly ways. Our approach in marriage therapy is oriented towards empowering spouses to love and accept themselves, and their spouse, and to learn communication skills that work for their unique temperaments. From there each spouse will feel safe with each other, be able to trust again, have greater emotional control when dealing with hard times, and begin to have forward thinking in which they can work together to resolve disagreements and turn them into agreements. When a Christian Marriage is caught in a cycle of toxicity, each spouse find that they are missing out of God's plans for them. Because they are consumed with self and the family problems. Healing of the hearts and reconnection in a marriage is of utmost importance for moving forward in God's blessings and calling on their lives.
