Your Path to a Loving, Healthy Relationship

Effective counseling methods renowned for strengthening and deepening bonds

A brief introduction from Jim Covington – M.Div., MA, LMFT

My Approach

The reality is that all human relationships can be difficult at times. 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 counseling to break through those barriers and strengthen or cultivate anew the intimacy — the bond – they still hope for.

If you are married or in a committed relationship relationship, as a Licensed Marriage & Relationship Therapist I am committed to preserving couples’ promises to each other unless compelling reasons suggest otherwise.
