Why Married Life?

At Married Life, we are driven by a profound commitment to nurturing and strengthening relationships. Our team comprises counselors who not only possess years of professional and life experience but also bring the invaluable insight of navigating their own marital journeys, some even through the challenges of divorce.

Through a dedicated pursuit of knowledge and skill refinement, our counselors have honed their craft by attending numerous trainings, workshops, and intensives. From this wealth of experience, we have curated a selection of the most effective tools and techniques to empower couples in enhancing and improving their marriages.

Central to our approach is the integration of Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Gottman techniques, and the Genogram method. By delving deep into the emotional landscape of relationships, fostering effective communication, and understanding familial dynamics, we guide couples towards profound insights and lasting solutions.

Continual growth and learning are at the heart of our practice. Our team consistently works to complete EFT training and engages weekly in supporting each other to continue sharpening skills and wisdom to ensure we offer nothing but the best in marriage therapy.
Embark on a journey of transformation with us at Married Life Coaching & Counseling, where we are dedicated to helping you cultivate a thriving and fulfilling marriage.

What we believe

We believe we have a God who modeled for us and designed us for relationships, whether we are married or not. Marriage happens to be one of the most significant relationships we seek and hope for. It’s the relationship that best establishes security, safety, soothing, and significance for adults and children. Studies show that happily married couples are actually healthier, more productive, and live longer lives. Regardless of your faith and perspective, the principles we use and teach will help you navigate communication and conflict in a way that will “stick”, provided you’re willing to yield, explore, and engage.

“We are so thankful for Christie. She has poured her insight, knowledge, and Godly wisdom into our lives. We don’t know what we would have done without her for the past year. She has been a tremendous blessing in our lives and will continue to be in the months ahead.”

S.K. and D.K.

My husband and I are currently seeing Matt Smith and he saved our marriage. When we first started, we were getting close to a divorce or separation and Matt made an entire difference in the first session. He is remarkable and genuine and I am so excited to continue working with him.
