Your Path to a Loving, Healthy Marriage
With a Compassionate, Marriage-Friendly Therapist, Your Journey to a Thriving Relationship Starts Here.
A brief introduction from Jim Covington – M.Div., MA, LMFT
A Marriage Friendly Therapist is committed to preserving couples’ original marriage vows unless compelling reasons suggest otherwise.
The reality is that all human relationships can be difficult at times, including marriage. As someone put it: ‘choosing a partner is choosing a set of problems.’ Not very romantic, I admit, but true.
Sometimes those problems lead to emotional barriers, and sometimes couples will need professional marriage counseling to break through those barriers and strengthen or cultivate anew the intimacy—the bond– they still hope for.
