How Do Couples Typically Manage Their Disappointment?
Some couples either give up and settle for finding (mostly unhealthy) ways to tolerate an unsatisfying relationship or end the relationship prematurely. Unfortunately, avoiding resolving the problems couples face only makes things worse. This is very much like not caring for a wound. Ignoring a wound can result in infection and more damage. Having the courage, humility, and focused commitment to fixing what’s wrong is what it takes to get past the current roadblock and on to a happier and more fulfilling life and relationship
We want to help those who have run into unexpected roadblocks which prevents them from enjoying their relationships. If you are one of those folks, we hope you don’t feel embarrassed by the relationship challenges you are facing. Every relationship experiences some form of disillusionment and difficulties. You are not alone. As unsettling as your relationship challenges may seem, they are not unusual and there is hope. .
“You don't develop courage by being happy in your relationships everyday. You develop it by surviving difficult times and challenging adversity.” Epicurus.

There Is Hope
At Decision Point Counseling, we are committed to helping couples achieve the kind of relationships they want. We care about your progress, but our caring does not stop when the session ends. We encourage you to give us feedback between sessions about the successes and challenges you face. This way we can make the time in the office as productive and constructive as possible.
Whether you are seeking our assistance and help as a last resort, to smooth out some rough edges, or simply as an “annual check-up,” we are here to help.

“Some think love can be measured by the amount of butterflies in their tummy. Others think love can be measured in bunches of flowers, or by using the words 'forever.' But love can only truly be measured by actions. It can be a small thing, such as peeling an orange for a person you love because you know they don't like doing it.” Marian Keyes
