Online Marriage Counseling

Effective help for your marriage, when and where it works best for you

How it Works

We have a direct, proven approach to improving your marital satisfaction. Where other online counseling businesses offer untested approaches and expansive teams of anonymous helpers, we have a team of hand-picked Christian therapists who have chosen to specialize in helping couples rebuild, renew, and recover their marriages through proven, marriage-focused methods.

After starting with an assessment of how your marriage is doing and learning about your shared history, we follow a three-stage approach:

  1. Identify Relationship Cycles: We will uncover your unique relationship style, identify the underlying emotions and needs behind it, and validate those needs.
  2. Explore Emotions: We walk you through reconnecting with your own needs and coach you as you work towards promoting acceptance between yourselves to create emotional engagement.
  3. Create Connection: We will guide you towards independently creating new solutions to old problems and developing new, godly ways of relating.


Meet Your Therapists

Our team of professional Christian therapists come from Masters level counseling programs with training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy.  They are committed to helping you rebuild and recover your marriage, and promise to help you feel heard and acknowledged through our structured process, no matter the circumstances that bring you to therapy. Our goal is creating secure, lasting bonds by increasing closeness and connection.

Over the years Evi has often observed that people’s greatest pain occurs in the context of their closest relationships leaving partners feeling hopeless and alone. Using faith and EFT she believes that no matter how far apart you feel from connecting with your partner, it is possible to reconnect, re-kindle, sustain and nurture your relationship.

Effective Help For Your Marriage

Our marriage therapists have specialized training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, one of just a small handful of empirically-validated approaches to helping distressed marriages. We work with you from a Bible-based value system to:

  • Stop fighting and start understanding one another
  • Improve communication and conflict resolution skills
  • Increase emotional and sexual intimacy
  • Solve problems that you have been stuck on "forever"
  • Connect deeply through affordable, weekly sessions that continue for weeks or months, not years

Divorce is a costly alternative:

  • The average person loses 77% of net worth in a divorce
  • Legal costs can easily exceed $5,000 for each party
  • Establishing a new residence often costs $5000-$10000 or more
  • Can lead to a lifetime of chronic financial instability
  • Destroys social networks and forces friends to choose sides
