Journey to Joy
I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
-John 10:10b (NKJV)
DOES ANY OF THIS SOUND FAMILIAR?
I just discovered my spouse had an affair.
I hate that it happened but still want my marriage
to work. What now?
Our family is falling apart and
I don't know how to stop it.
I feel so anxious and stressed out.
What can I do?
I hate that I'm divorced.
I feel sad, empty and betrayed.
What's next for me?
My teenager seems so defiant and
disrespectful. How do I handle it?
If I could just get my spouse to change,
our marriage would be great.
Why don’t I care about sex?
We never talk - we just fight and it gets ugly.
I hate it!
I feel angry and frustrated so often. Why?
Our lives are so busy, we just never seem to be able to connect with each other.
LIFE IS HARD - LET US HELP!
LifeBridge Counseling works with a wide range of emotional and behavioral issues for individuals, couples and families. In a supportive environment, our highly personalized approach will help you find the healing, resolution and personal growth you’re striving for.
Marriage & Relationship Counseling
Believing that God created marriage as something that should flourish and be enjoyed to the fullest, LifeBridge Counseling was founded to help people who are married or those planning to get married to experience their relationship at its best.
We recognize that grief and loss touch everyone at some point in their life and very few are prepared to deal with their loss in a healthy manner. We want to help you as you grieve, and get to the other side of grief so you can once again experience true joy and fulfillment in life.
We are certified in Prepare-Enrich and SYMBIS (Saving Your Marriage Before It Starts) pre-marital/marriage assessment. These are marvelous tools to get a quick and thorough overview of your strengths and growth areas in your marriage or marriage to come.
EMDR - Trauma
We are trained in the specialized therapy, EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) which has been proven to be an effective therapy in dealing with traumas in life. If you are feeling overwhelmed or paralyzed by the negative impact of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) or other traumas, you should consider EMDR to help you clear that from your life and enable you to move forward.
With a staff that has experienced over 50 years of every facet of marriage, we want to help married couples have deep and loving relationships, vibrant communication, and sizzling romance and sexual intimacy.

Do I need therapy?
Everyone goes through difficult challenges in life. While you may have been able to cope with the challenges you’ve encountered, it’s always a good idea to seek extra support when you need it. In fact, when you realize you need a helping hand, you’re taking responsibility admirably by facing the challenges you encounter in life. Therapy will give you long - term benefits and the tools you need to overcome whatever difficulties you encounter.
How can therapy help me?
There are many benefits in participating in therapy. Therapists can provide support and help you find relief for issues such as trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, stress, and relationship problems. Counseling is extremely valuable in managing personal growth, relationships, and the many challenges faced in daily life. By applying therapy techniques, therapists can provide different perspectives on complicated problems or even guide you to a solution.
What happens during therapy?
Therapy may be different depending on the goals for therapy and the needs of the person. Typically speaking, we will discuss the things that are currently happening in your life, things that happened in the past that are relevant to your issue, and review the gains we’ve had from the previous session. Ultimately, I want to help you bring what you’ve discovered or learnt during therapy back into your daily life.
Medication vs. Therapy
Medication cannot solve your mental and emotional problems alone. Therapy is needed in order to address the source of your distress and behavior patterns. Check with your medical doctor and see what’s the best treatment for you.
Will our conversations remain confidential?
Confidentiality is a key component of therapy. What you discuss in a session will not be shared with anyone else. By law, your therapist can’t release this information without your written consent, except in the following situations:
The therapist suspects there is past or present abuse or neglect of children, adults or elders.
The therapist suspects the client is in danger of harming themselves or has threatened to harm another person.
The therapist has been made aware of a national security risk.
LifeBridge Counseling and Coaching is the counseling center of Wally and Beth Hollis. We are committed to helping individuals and couples experience and enjoy life to the fullest. Implementing Biblical principles, we encourage people to know and experience the truth of a life well lived.
