Couples usually come for marriage counseling or couples therapy when a difficult relationship has become painful. This could result from a crisis, an ongoing struggle, a difficult life circumstance, or a betrayal. For many people, the situation feels either scary or hopeless. My goal is to help you rebuild a loving close relationship. I work hard to provide a safe, caring environment where each of you will feel heard and validated that your opinion matters.

Licensed Marital and Family Therapist Associate

In 75075 - Nearby to Richardson.

Hope is a renewable blessing. One of the main ingredients to successful marital counseling is that clients want and believe that the process will work. Using the Gottman model and Family Systems Principles, I have had success in helping couples achieve new feelings and thinking that are positive. The emblematic triangle of Commitment, Passion, and Intimacy is explained and reinforced throughout all session work. Breakthroughs in intimacy for couples often happen right in session, though one or both partners is averse to or afraid of intimacy because of past experiences. Conflict resolution, communication, and downright friendship are all skills that can be learned through counseling.

I have worked extensively with couples for over 10 years. Whether preparing them for marriage or helping them reach a level of communication and intimacy they have not experienced before, they have found help and growth through counseling. In a non judgmental, caring and compassionate atmosphere couples are encouraged to be truthful and honest with themselves and their partner. They might struggle with the changes but welcome their growth and increased closeness. Please do not hesitate to call 214-997-4231

Couples Counselor

David Ashburner, MA, LPC, CSAT, CHFP

Men and Couples Counselor

In 75093 - Nearby to Richardson.

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.

Ashley Evans, CPC, MA, LPC Associate

Licensed Professional Counselor - Associate

In 75205 - Nearby to Richardson.

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.

In 75287 - Nearby to Richardson.

A committed relationship isn't always one in which marriage is involved. Couples therapy is an approach to help you to learn to listen to each other deeply. Intimacy, transparency, and vulnerability are key to your relationship success. In addition, learning to soothe yourself prior to your communication so that you can treat each other in new and supportive ways is helpful. Lastly, learning to have special regard to the uniqueness of your partner's needs can help your couple's relationship to succeed. (I am an ally and treat all couples.)

Vanessa Hughes, MA, SEP
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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist - Supervisor

Feeling connected loved, accepted, and secure in a relationship is vital to our emotional and physical well-being. Couples often get caught in "negative cycles of communication," which is detrimental to the relationship. Feelings of anxiety, fear, or loneliness heighten yet are often covered up by "anger or "numbness." One or both of you might go on the defense and possibly someone just "shuts-down. I help partners recognize their unhealthy cycle, team-up against "negative cycle," and learn new ways to connect and communicate that help each of you feel more connected, safe, and secure. Couples. I use Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT) when working with couples.

It is wonderful to have the opportunity to work with couples that take the step to invest in their marriage through therapy. Often the focus can be a single, such as improving communication or understanding why there are differences or struggles or it can be more complex when there is a sense of confusion and not knowing where to start. In couples counseling we can look to identify the issues facing the couple as a unit and work together to move towards constructive changes that benefit both parties in the relationship.

Couples Counselor

Jeanne Curtis, Psy. D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 75034 - Nearby to Richardson.

I define a couple as any two people in a loving relationship. Relationships are the most important part of our lives, and often the most difficult. Couples deal daily with stressors of all kinds which can impact their ability to focus on each other and have the best connection possible. Couples therapy can help repair the connection by encouraging honest communication, teaching communication and negotiation techniques, rebuilding trust, and diminishing other barriers to love and happiness. Being in a relationship is tough at times, and sometimes it takes that outside source, the objective voice to help a couple get where they want to be.

STOP the divorce madness! why divorce your spouse when there's a solution to every relationship issue? And there's a good chance you'll end up marrying the same person in a different body. I believe in the institution of marriage and if there's a way to keep couples together we will find it with couple's therapy. There's a pattern, there's a dance to the relationship. Finding out what that is and incorporating healthier coping skills to get through the tough spots is at the heart of my work.

In 75093 - Nearby to Richardson.

Couples counseling is extremely rewarding work when the lights come on for the couple about how to relate to each other in ways that they both appreciate. We begin with basic understandings about boundaries and learn quickly how to talk and act in healthier ways. Most of us simply communicate the way that our parents did and if we can learn to improve on this just a little, there is almost immediate relief. Using better boundaries (even in talking) are the building block for healthier communication and better emotional intimacy.

Philip Kolba, MA LPC NCC

Psychotherapist

In 75209 - Nearby to Richardson.

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.

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? Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com to learn how! Or call 877-606-6161. DR. FLEMING'S NEW RELATIONSHIP/COUPLES INTENSIVES. www.kevinflemingphd.com/marriage-couples-retreats.php

It is very possible to have long lasting fulfilling relationships. Although they require a lot of work and can be one of the most difficult aspects of a person's life, it can also be the most positive influence on a person's health. There has been countless research done on how to relate to others in healthy ways and how to have successful relationships in all aspects of your life. I love sharing this knowledge and watching people have the connections they so deeply long for. Relationships are repairable and can always be growing and developing.
