It's easy to get stuck in patterns of interacting that end up drawing you further away from your partner instead of closer together. We will work toward identifying those patterns and finding more positive ways to relate to one another with a much better understanding of each other's greatest fears, needs, and desires. I utilize primarily the The Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy, both have research to support their efficacy with couples.

I am a big believer in emotionally focused therapy (EFT) for couples and relationships. Attachment theory is a powerful frame of reference and one in which couples can learn to attune to their partner's needs and bring greater harmony to the relationship. I work with each partner and then come together to understand the picture as a whole. Through EFT it is entirely possible to bring new understanding to both partners so that they can re-ignite the passion and cut through the frustration of mixed messages and hurt feelings.

Living together as a couple can enrich your life. It can also being challenging and sometimes exhausting. The challenge of living in a way that nourishes both partners is ongoing as circumstances and people change. It requires courage and focus to face your role in the relationship. Typically each person is convinced that it is the other's "fault," and if he or would change then we could live happily ever after. Sometimes it may be that simple but personally I have not seen that. Working together we can explore the flow of your particular relationship and enhance the areas where it thrives as well as release the energy around the areas where it grinds and halts.

There are countless models of healthy romantic relationships, from monogamous to polyamorous, and unique variations between partners. The scripts for dating and longterm relationships of our parents’ generations may not be applicable to your relationship, and there is no formal education in how to be a good partner or how to identify unhealthy relationships. But there is psychological research that shows that effective communication, emotional openness, intimacy, and other factors contribute to healthy relationships. Creating these conditions are skills that can be learned. I practice brief humanistic and emotion-focused therapy (EFT) to help my LGBTQ and hetero clients learn these skills.

My passion is to help heterosexual couples succeed in their marriages. I work with couples seeking pre-marital counseling, marriage enrichment, help for infidelity trauma/recovery and help for marriages in crisis. I have a biblical world-view and believe that couples can see their marriages transformed if they are willing to hang in there and to change.

When there has been infidelity, or sex/porn addiction in a relationship it is difficult to ever rebuild trust. David offers THREE-DAY INTENSIVES to help couples begin the healing process and the long process of building trust. This is not for everyone because it is so intense, but for some it is a relationship saver. Doing standard 1-hour-a-week therapy just is not enough for some relationships that have been devastated by infidelity, so a THREE-DAY INTENSIVE helps get in 4-6 months of therapy to jump start the healing process. The INTENSIVE helps end lying for good, and sets up an environment where healing can begin.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

If you and your partner are struggling, I want to help. Using Emotion-Focused Therapy, I help you to explain to your partner those things that hurt you or leave you feeling alone, disrespected or ignored in a way that helps your partner truly understand. Once that "heart understanding" takes place, you will feel that deep connection which is part of a loving, respecting relationship that your connection once was. There IS hope, and change can take place if you and your partner want it! I would like to be your guide to that place of deep love, respect, and caring.

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings?

My therapy with couples typically involves ongoing satisfaction assessments. I target the couple's previous successes in their relationship, fondness and admiration of one another (or lack thereof), and their ability to create shared meaning. I confront what Dr. John Gottman refers to as "The Four Horseman of the Apocolypse" in relationships: criticism, defensiveness, stonewalling, and contempt, and help to provide their antidotes. I see the relationship as my client (i.e., I don't "take sides"). I have taught the core course "Marital Therapy" in the Graduate Department of Health and Human Services at St. Mary's University in San Antonio for the last eleven years.

To be in a relationship today can be very confusing and difficult at times. We have lost our traditional values and hence uncertainties can come easily. The mass media--television, movies, radio, songs, etc.--can be very toxic in order for couples to be able to maintain a healthy relationship. This can happen almost hypnotically. We can also carry unresolved issues from our past. To gain clarity, release and harmony, couples can benefit immensely from counseling.

Couples Counselor

Vanessa Hughes, MA, SEP

Alternative and Integrated Practitioner

Available for Online Therapy

Let me guess. One partner feels alone and like they don't matter and the other feels they are always being criticized and can't get anything right. The more one asks for the other to show up, the more the partner disappears physically and emotionally. You both bicker and fight and the idea of sitting and just hanging out seems elusive, if not impossible. Something like this? Often we crave connection but are blocked by the pain and the history that gets in the way. Small fights about little things become battles that highlight our struggle to have our basic relational needs met. I can help you get under the bickering to the parts crying out for connection- to an enriching relationship.
