Brent Jackson, MS, LPC
Throughout the past 20 years, Brent has helped thousands of individuals, couples and families in crisis through his counseling services. His particular strength is helping couples get "unstuck" from destructive behaviors and patterns that have made them unhappy in their marriage. His marriage/couples counseling skills can help you to solve your problems, and if your intimacy has waned, he'll help you get the loving feelings back! Counseling can bring joy back to your marriage or relationship.
You and your partner may have conflicting needs along the lines of time spent together, sexual frequency, handling finances, openness in communication, sharing household chores, contact with in-laws, parenting your children, or career choices that have caused 'glitches' in your relationship. Or, you may be in crisis due to divorce threats or an extramarital affair. Cheating doesn't have to be the end of a marriage. Brent can help you to rebuild the trust and survive an affair with numerous relationship therapy tools that are proven to be successful in marriage counseling.
If you and your spouse own or operate a business or work together in a small family-run business, then there are numerous work conflicts that you likely encounter on a frequent basis. Brent can help you to clearly define roles and responsibilities that will ease tensions in the workplace.
Let Brent help you restore peace and harmony to your relationship. Call to set up an appointment, or to schedule a complimentary 'mini' marriage counseling phone consultation: 417-569-3544.
