Marriage Counseling

There’s nothing in life quite as wonderful—and challenging—as marriage. We strongly encourage all couples to be proactive in identifying and seeking help for speed bumps before they turn into full road blocks. Schedule a yearly marriage "check-in" to keep your relationship heading in the right direction as you walk together in your journey through life.

Lutheran Family Service provides relationship and marriage counseling for couples in Iowa, South Dakota, Nebraska and Illinois. If counseling is integrated prior to marriage and/or during the beginning years of marriage, issues can be spotted and worked through in a more proactive approach. Our counselors can give you the tools you need to resolve conflict, weather life’s storms, transitions in life such as parenting, empty-nesting, blended families and more so that you and your spouse are best-equipped.

There’s nothing in life quite as wonderful—and challenging—as marriage. It is the union of two very different people who have come to believe that their lives would be incomplete without the other. As the years go by, it is not unusual for problems to arise—even in the best of marriages. Healthy marriage relationships require constant attention and effort.

Lutheran Family Service specializes in offering Christian couples and marriage counseling should a client want that aspect integrated into their counseling sessions. However, you do not have to be Lutheran or Christian to receive our services. Just know that you will be treated with kindness, compassion and love.

Lutheran Family Service counselors approach relationship and marriage counseling with a sense of hope. We believe that things can get better and that you can have the marriage you desire, even though you may be tempted to believe this is not possible.
