We at Lighthouse Counseling believe that one of the most critical elements that can affect an individual’s mental health, self worth and level of satisfaction in life is their interpersonal relationships.  We understand that mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and post-traumatic stress and many others can significantly impair the level of functioning of any marriage and family system.  When studying and working with couples, we have found that the reverse is almost always true. The level of satisfaction and closeness in a marriage and family system can directly affect an individual’s mental health.  We often find counseling centers immediately trying to medicate clients, to address symptoms without exploring the Root of the problem.  We recognize that medication is often needed but believe that underlying (root) issues can be fueling the client’s depression, anxiety etc.  Loneliness, rejection, betrayal, abandonment, unresolved anger and trauma along with many other relationship induced issues when treated can relieve the client of their painful symptoms.  At Lighthouse Counseling we specialize in Marriage and Family counseling to help clients work through their experiences, feelings and beliefs to improve an individual’s mental health condition and quality of life.

Marriage counseling teaches couples how to communicate, learn to resolve conflict and improve the level of closeness in their relationship. Let us agree that when things are not going well in a marriage or family it becomes difficult to focus and concentrate at work.  Work problems along with marriage and family problems can begin to put a tremendous amount of stress and pressure on a person.  Unresolved conflict and resentment can begin to cause a relationship to deteriorate. depression, hopelessness, anger and anxiety can begin to set it.  Many referrals for counseling are relationship oriented.  Marital breakup, child behavioral problems etc. often lead clients to call for help.

At Lighthouse Counseling, we value marriages and families and it is our goal to help yours to succeed.
