Marriage Counseling & Family Therapy
Marriage is one of the topics that is constantly brought up as a statistic. It can be intimidating as a couple that is looking to get engaged and, one day, married. These statistics can become even more daunting to a couple that is unhappy and dealing with issues currently. While most people desire a successful, happy marriage, few put in the work required to make it a reality.
At Riverpath Counseling, we place quite a bit of emphasis on the importance of a strong relationship, in and outside of marriages. That being said, we know that marriage is one of the strongest bonds and relationships that we encounter as humans. So when we are unhappy in a marriage, we often see that cross over to other areas of our lives like work, friendships and hobbies. Why let your marriage suffer when there is help to take advantage of.
Help doesn’t have to begin when a marriage is rocky, and that’s a common misconception. Whether you’ve been married for 50 years, dating for 10 years, or engaged for 12 months, we welcome couples from all walks of life to come in and receive guidance and support in the areas that they need it. We offer a number of marriage and pre-marriage counseling services as well as family counseling sessions.
Below are all of the specialty areas of couples counseling that we offer and what they entail.

Divorce Recovery Counseling
You and your spouse have decided that divorce is the right option for you. There is much healing to be done when coping with the loss of not only a partner, but of dreams and plans that had been made, the perceived loss of a shared history and a new sense of instability. Heal and discover yourself so that you can go on to being the best version of yourself.
You’ve worked through your engagement to develop a strong connection and to develop good habits. Identify what patterns in your lives are likely to become obstacles to your future success as a couple.
Affair Recovery Counseling
There was an indiscretion in your marriage and a break in the trust that defines a solid relationship. You and your partner have decided that the overall good of your relationship is more important than the affair and you want to work together to heal the broken bond. Affair recovery will help you deal with both the significance of the affair itself and the underlying causes that led to the affair itself.
Take your marriage to the next level or bring it back to it’s former greatness. You and your spouse will learn more effective communication tools, new ways of approaching one another, discover unmet needs and hopes, and will learn about how your emotions impact the other individual.
Your family is changing and evolving in ways that you no longer feel capable of handling on your own. The pieces of the puzzle don’t fit together in a way that they once did and now you need help sorting through the events. Many families never resolve their internal issues leading to a life of hidden hurt and potential dysfunction. Heal the wounds and become “stronger at the broken places”.
