Are you at a point in your relationship where you can't decide if you want to leave or to stay?
Discenment counseling provides a place and the tools to help you "discern" or decide about the future of your marital or long term committed relationship.
DISCERNMENT COUNSELING: THE NEW APPROACH FOR COUPLES ON THE BRINK
Discernment counseling is a way for couples to look at their options before making a final decision about divorce. It is most appropriate for couples where one partner wants to preserve and repair the relationship and the other is leaning towards ending it. Research shows that this kind of “mixed agenda” is common among couples approaching divorce, and there is a dearth of special services for them. It’s also a common (and difficult) presentation in couples counseling. Discernment counseling differs from regular marriage counseling in three ways: a) the goal is not to solve problems in the relationship, but to figure out whether the problems can be solved; b) the process involves mainly individual conversations with each partner, since they each have different needs and agendas, and c) it is always short term.

In other words, this has been a very tough time, and I’d like to help.
You’ve probably told your husband or wife that you are deeply unhappy in your marriage, and you may have brought up divorce. This is a hard time, one you never thought would come to pass the day you got married.
But you’ve not started the divorce process yet, or if you have started, you’re not certain it’s the right step. That’s why I suggest you consider Discernment Counseling to help you make the best decision about the future of your marriage.
