The Center for Relational Healing

Barriers to True Intimacy

A Christ-centered counseling service dedicated to helping those who are struggling with various addiction and intimacy concerns. Through a multi-stage process of individual, group, and couple/family therapy experiences, unhealthy relational patterns are broken. A nurturing support system encourages the client through deeper work of unresolved emotional issues. As self-defeating beliefs are replaced with truth, a transforming paradigm emerges. Spiritual surrender and forgiveness empower the journey toward healthy intimacy with self, God, and others.

Christ-Centered Counseling for Addiction and Intimacy Concerns

An intimate relationship is one that involves a special closeness – emotionally, spiritually, and sexually. Deep honest and trust, healthy boundaries, mutual support, and a surrendered spiritual life are all vital components of healthy intimacy.


Unfortunately, individuals often bring "emotional baggage" to an adult relationship. Such issues as unresolved resentments, fear of rejection and abandonment, history of abuse, sexual trauma, and addictions create barriers to true intimacy. For many, the healthy expression of needs and feelings was not adequately modeled in their families of origin. The result is a disconnection with themselves, God, and others that robs them of the abilities to share their true selves and to receive love from others.


As a result, intimacy concerns may emerge through unmanageable conditions or relational problems that:


— Thrive upon fear and shame;

— Encourage isolation, resentment, deception, and/or addictive behaviors; and

— Involve sexual compulsion, sexual anorexia, and/or other sexual issues.
