Disillusionment is Step 3 before you (Step 4) shake up your beliefs about a "happy marriage." How could you and your partner rejuvenate and inspire your commitment? I can help you understand the Steps with powerful ideas for you to start applying today. If you spouse isn't ready, you can lead the way!

Infidelity. Communication. Past emotional injury. Criticism and Defensiveness. These issues are by far the most common issues in couples across demographics and locations. Yet, no two couples are the same. Each relationship interacts, relates and communicates in different ways; and each couple will heal differently. In addition, couples from the LGBTQIA, poly/nonmonogamy & kink community often face additional societal or family-related challenges that often impact the relationship. By reconnecting you emotionally, we'll work as a team to improve your communication, heal past injuries, revitalize intimacy, rebuild trust and create new pathways of love & acceptance.

Dr. Tracey Clifford Licensed Psychotherapist

Couples often find themselves in the abyss of defense mechanisms they use with each other to punish one another when they’re angry and upset. These defense mechanisms don’t work in fact the more they reactive they are the more the connection deteriorates in the relationship. I Help people discover what their defense mechanism sorrow and create new, healthy, loving and nurturing habits to reconnect. I am an eclectic therapist who uses multiple modes/ models or approaches of therapy to help people achieve the desired goals-depending on who they are and what they respond to Best.

Couples Counselor

Cherry Weber, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

My approach to couples therapy is to help the individuals in the couple identify what they want in the relationship, how to express this to their partner is a positive noncritical or not threatening manner, and then help them develop the tools to use to negotiate until they are both happy. Of course the relationship needs to be assessed for abusive power and control issues. Couples therapy cannot occur if domestic abuse or domestic violence is part of the relationship. If abuse is part of the relationship then the individuals need to work on their issues before couples therapy can be successful.

Althea Olson, LCSW

Psychotherapist, Author, Keynote Speaker

In 60543 - Nearby to Plano.

Most therapists are scared of providing couples counseling because it is difficult remaining unbiased towards two people who are in the throes of high conflict. However, I love it and it is my favorite type of counseling to provide. In my experience I have found most couples get caught up in the details of life and begin fighting to be right instead of fighting for each other. Instead of focusing on what they need to hear they become consumed over how their partner has wronged them. I focus on restoring reconciling the relationship to a place that is mutually beneficial for each partner using evidence based interventions from CBT, The Gottman Method, Bowen Family Systems, and ACT.

Thomas Heroldt, MA, LCPC, CADC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Accepting and celebrating the differences that make up a couple can bring joy to any relationship. Validating emotions and not having to understand them reduces the amount of fighting that will take place. Watching for areas of stonewalling, contempt, defensiveness and criticism will allow communication to continue and not shut someone down or up. Learning how to repair a relationship on a daily bases will keep it on the road for many years.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 60560 - Nearby to Plano.

I offer Gottman Method Couples Therapy. Marriages are created from two distinct life experiences, expectations, communication patterns and love languages. Helping couples learn skills and identify issues that create conflict and emotional pain allow couples to have deeper connection and understanding and a more joy-filled marriage. All marital relationships go through different seasons. It can be helpful to have an outside professional assist a couple in navigating through a fall or winter season. The marriage bond can be fortified and strengthened to withstand the challenges and transitions of life.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Certified Family Life Educator

In 60119 - Nearby to Plano.

If you are concerned about your relationship, it is normal. Most people wonder how healthy their relationship is and if it could be better. Society teaches us to focus on the fun of falling in love but not the tools to make relationships work well in the long-term. Couples counseling is most effective if the counselor is specially trained in a theoretical model or approach specific to relationships. Effective models are PET-C or Gottman. Ideally, the couple will attend counseling together. If not, simply make an appointment individually. The most important step is to make an appointment, individually or as a couple, or there is lessened potential for increased relationship satisfaction.

Couples counseling can be beneficial to any couple in a committed relationship. If both partners are willing to participate, counseling can be effective regardless of sexual orientation, age, race or length of time spent together. Couples will benefit from tracking progress as it helps to promote emotional awareness, communication, and healthy changes in behavior. Couples counseling can benefit clients dealing with trust issues, financial burdens, resentment/unresolved issues, infidelity, transition phases and countless other challenges effecting the relationship.

Alicia Stalker-Gallichio, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 60450 - Nearby to Plano.

When discontentment in your relationship arises, problems are easier to repair if you seek counseling sooner rather than later. Many people wait until the "last straw" before seeking counseling as a solution. In my many years of experience, I often find that one member of the couple has already "checked out" emotionally because there have been so many years of discontentment. Please don't allow your relationship to get to that point! A happy couples relationship can add so much to your life and you deserve this! I am of the belief that it takes two in a relationship and usually there is not just one person at fault. I help you take responsibility with both the causes and the solutions
