About  James Covington

I have been a pre-marital and marriage counselor/educator for thirty years. I love my work because I strongly believe in our human need for lasting, meaningful partnerships and connections. Marriage offers a dynamic opportunity for personal growth. In fact, I believe that even conflict, depending on how it is managed, can help strengthen your relationship over the long term.

I begin with this premise: emotional connection is the most important element of a good marriage. My goal is to help a couple regenerate that connection. I actively teach you how to stop negative interactions, meet each other’s emotional needs and be with one another in a more positive nurturing way.

One of my favorite poets, Rainer Maria Rilke wrote: “Love . . . consists in this, that two solitudes protect and touch and greet each other.” I am actively committed to helping couples restore and sustain that kind of mutually nurturing love.

For more information about how I work with couples, please check my website. There you will also find information regarding discernment counseling for couples on the brink of divorce.

If you are engaged to be married and wish to learn more about premarital work and how your relationship can benefit, please take a moment to visit my website and learn more about premarital counseling.
