Sometimes you just need to speak with an impartial third party in order to get everything back into perspective in your relationship. Developing a close relationship which is also a lasting relationship takes commitment, hard work, love, and acceptance. It may seem like you have hit a "bump in the road" to a lasting relationship and yet you know you love and care for each other. If you are ready to move your relationship to the next level, call now for an appointment.

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 75034 - Nearby to Shady Shores.

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. Why not make the relationships in you life more fulfilling and meaningful.

Daniel Gowan, M.Div., M.A., LCDC, LPC-S, CSAT

Marriage Counseling, Sex/Porn Addiction, PTSD

In 75034 - Nearby to Shady Shores.

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.

David Ashburner, MA, LPC, CSAT, CHFP
Couples Counselor

David Ashburner, MA, LPC, CSAT, CHFP

Men and Couples Counselor

In 75034 - Nearby to Shady Shores.

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.

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.

Kevin Fleming, Ph.D.
Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming, Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

In 75014 - Nearby to Shady Shores.

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

Couples Counselor

Jeanne Curtis, Psy. D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 75034 - Nearby to Shady Shores.

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.

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA LPC NCC

Psychotherapist

In 76262 - Nearby to Shady Shores.

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.

Licensed Professional Counselors & Counselor Interns

In 76201 - Nearby to Shady Shores.

Communication problems and intimacy issues can lead to a breakdown in connection between you and your partner. In counseling you will focus on healing through reconnecting with your partner by creating new, shared meanings about the relationship. Typically, clients rely on old assumptions about how to make a relationship work. These different perspectives often get in the way. Ultimately, your ability to be understanding and compassionate for your partner will improve your ability to communicate more effectively. Improved communication will lead to more openness, which will inevitably lead to greater intimacy and a more satisfying relationship.

Licensed Professional Counselor - Associate

Available for Online Therapy

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.

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.

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.)
