There is Help:

The problem for most couples is a lack of skills, often in the areas of anger management, communication, commitment, conflict resolution and intimacy.

The good news?  Our solutions will help you and your spouse/partner get what you wanting and needing from your relationship.

Research shows that the best, long-lasting results for couples come couple/marital counseling and or a couples workshop. Mills Counseling Services offers couples both of these services.

When Should a Couple Seek Counseling?

Couples often ask, "When should a couple seek counseling?" The answer is most often: "Six months ago."

Couples have numerous reasons to put off therapy, however waiting too long to get the help you need only increases frustration and anxiety.

What are the signs that it is time for a couple to seek counseling?

Here are a few to look for:
Feeling distant from your partner.
Frequent arguing without resolving problems.
Lack of affection or loss of physical intimacy.
Feelings of Mistrust and Suspicion.
Avoiding spending time with each other.
Poor communication, "he/she doesn't listen".
Inadequate support.

If you recognize even one of these signs, Do Not Delay Take Action Now.

Learning new skills to deepen communication, resolve old hurts, and improve passion are available for you right now.

Relationships themselves are never bad, but often the interaction and communication between a couple is no longer working successfully and needs a "tune-up" to work more effectively. Often in cases such as these, counseling and/or a couple’s workshop can improve the skills needed to maintain a healthy, happy and fulfilling relationship.
