We start marriage counseling this week


In June of this year, Lizze and I officially reconciled after an almost two year separation. It was a difficult time for my family but we have since put that behind us and moved forward as a family.  

Things are really good but because we realize just how stressful our lives are, we want to employ marriage counseling as a tool to help us navigate things as we continue to move forward.

People seem to frown on the idea of marriage counseling and I get it, there’s a great deal stigma surrounding it but at the same time, it’s also a tremendous resource. 
Lizze and I are really excited to get this started. It took a little while to get in and our first appointment had to be rescheduled because of illness but we finally get to begin this week.

Having a resource like this available and dedicated solely to our relationship will help us to stay focused, while remembering that we must make ourselves a priority. 

I don’t see this as a weakness at all.  I see it as we’re smart enough to realize that life is bigger than both of us and raising kids with Autism is a unique challenge and will take its toll. It would be foolish to dismiss an opportunity like this because we can use all the help we can get.
