Building Happy, Healthier Marriages

Kansas City Marriage Counseling

Searching for “marriage counselors near me” in the Kansas City, Missouri metro? You are in the right spot!

Not all professionals counselors are marriage counselors. In fact most counselors have very little experience doing marriage counseling, let alone Christian marriage counseling. You want to work with a Christian marriage counselor that has done a lot of couples counseling, because relationship counseling is different than individual counseling. Individual counselors who try to do marriage counseling often times hurt the relationship more than they help it.

Couples therapy, marriage coaching, couples counseling, relationship counseling, and marriage counseling are all synonyms for the same kind of treatment and are usually used interchangeably. So Christian marriage counseling is marriage counseling performed by a counselor who is a Christian, has training in integrating Biblical Christianity into the therapy process, and who has extensive experience working with martial struggles.

Affair Recovery

Affair Recovery

Discovering you’re being cheated on may be the most painful experience of your life. Often the pain of betrayal begins long before you know for sure, with the nagging suspicion that something isn’t right.

So what do you do now? Divorce and move on with your life? Try to get past the affair and reconcile your relationship? We’ve helped couples do both.

Every situation is unique. Fortunately we’ve navigated thousands of crises with couples, so we know how to help you decide what you want and how to achieve it.

Porn & Sex Addiction

Porn & Sex Addiction

The age of the internet has fueled an explosion of pornography and sexual addiction that has devastated many marriages. If you’ve discovered your spouse watching porn the emotions are overwhelming- Fear, insecurity, humiliation, rage.

If you have been caught acting out sexually you probably feel a mix of emotions – relieved for the secret to finally be out and terrified of losing your relationship.

You don’t have to travel this road alone. You may not yet know whether you want to stay in your relationship or not. We can help either way.

Sex Therapy

Sex Therapy

Most of us got married with an expectation of enjoying sexual passion in our marriage. But, for one reason or another, it doesn’t always work out that way.

Our Certified Sex Therapists (CST) know the complexities of sexual difficulties and how to help you overcome them. Whether your struggle is with low sexual desire, orgasm difficulty, pain during sex, inhibitions, flash backs from traumatic experiences, or something else – We know what to do.

Communication

Communication

Fighting like cats and dogs or long bouts of cold silence are not your idea of a fulfilling relationship. But sometimes it can seem like that’s all you do anymore. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to have respectful discussions, even about topics you disagree on? I mean dialogue where you really feel heard.

Imagine being able to share your ideas and talk through conflict to a win-win resolution.

This is not a fantasy. Couples, just like you and with worse communication skills, are able to learn how to communicate like this. Communication and conflict resolution is a skill set that we know how to teach you.

Testimonials

  • The Relationship Center [MyCounselor.Online] was perfect for our marriage at a very critical time. The crisis was handled and the issues that had to be addressed were brought to the forefront. Each issue was dealt with to resolution before working on the next one. The honest approach and no-nonsense no excuses accepted approach was right on. The skill of the staff was key to our success. The skills that we were given have made our marriage better than it has ever been. Our time with TRC [MyCounselor.Online] not only saved our marriage but made it amazing.

    Tim F
  • My husband and I have been going to TRC [MyCounselor.Online] for about 6 months and have gained valuable resources and tools to help our marriage. Rachelle is a great person and very knowledgeable. I would recommend TRC [MyCounselor.Online] and Rachelle to others.

  • Our marriage was so horrible we thought Josh Spurlock would surely give us the green light that there was no hope and encourage us to go our separate ways. At least that’s what a previous counselor in town had told me to do. Instead, Josh used biblical principles to bring hope into a very dark, bleak situation. We saw Josh on and off for approximately three years. It took a lot of work to have the marriage we do today, but it was worth every penny and every session we attended with Josh. Josh is a phenomenal counselor. It was easy to even talk about those embarrassing, tough topics with him. God really used The Relationship Center[MyCounselor.Online] to restore our marriage. Anything is possible when you’re willing to get help, implement what you’re being taught, and add Christ as the third party in your relationship. Instead of being a single Mom to three kids, I now have the marriage I only thought existed if I was with someone else. It really is unbelievable.

  • I would like to thank Josh for his help in building a strong biblical foundation in our marriage. It is normal to experience situations that cause difficulties in your marriage, but having the courage to step out and ask for help from a faith centered therapist such as Josh can help ensure that God’s plan for your marriage is revealed. Josh Spurlock is a true man of faith that honestly cares about your marriage and is committed to taking a biblical approach to therapy in an effort to equip you with the tools that are essential for continued success and years of mutual understanding and happiness.

  • Absolutely TOP NOTCH! These guys are the best of the best. SO good at what they do and being able to hear what you are not saying. They don’t want to keep you sick in an effort to collect money. Their hearts are truly at the center of Jesus and healing. It’s changed my life. I’ve gone for 5 or more years and I’m still there. Best money and decision I’ve ever made in an effort to change my life and relationships. I’m so grateful for the investment Rebecca and Shaun have made in my life and the confidence and encouragement the two of them have given me. Both are equally special! Exactly what I needed for my process.

  • Investing in christian counseling made all the difference for us. We had come to a point in our marriage where we were not communicating with one another. We had kids, careers, schedules and routines, and felt we were functioning well enough. What we didn’t have was a connection to one another. We each approached situations from our own perspective never taking time to realize how that impacted the other, or how we had come to have that perspective in the first place. The counseling process allowed us to reconnect with ourselves and to one another and provided tools for us to use when we weren’t with our counselor. We consider it one of the best investments of time and finances we have ever made! We would recommend the counseling process and our counselor Rachelle Colegrove without hesitation.

    Brian & Julie U
  • I have been going to Melissa for a little over a year now and I can honestly say it is one of the highlights of my week every week. I feel that she has helped me through so much already and is extremely easy to talk to about anything. I really appreciate her listening and offering me wisdom every time I see her. I don’t know how I would’ve managed getting through this past year of my life at times if I had started going to The Relationship Center [MyCounselor.Online]. Also, I am so grateful that they worked with me financially to find something that fits my tight, college budget. I definitely tell everyone about this place when they ask me about where to go for counseling. Thank you so much.
