How the Military and Family Life Counseling Program and Military OneSource Can Help Strengthen Your Relationship

Couple holding hands

Military life events like deployments and permanent change of station moves can strain a relationship. But smaller issues left unaddressed can add up to big problems, too. As one Military and Family Life Counselor put it, a relationship is like a car. Both need regular maintenance to run smoothly.

Couples counseling can help you and your partner stay steady through life’s challenges, big and small. In the videos below, three MFLCs provide a snapshot of relationship counseling.

Non-medical relationship counseling

The Military and Family Life Counseling Program and Military OneSource offer free and confidential couples counseling worldwide. MFLC and Military OneSource counselors are licensed, professionally trained and understand military life and the challenges that couples face. At many installations, MFLCs meet with couples in comfortable settings. Sessions are available by video as well. And all sessions are confidential except in suspected family maltreatment, harm to self or others and illegal activity.
