David Fitzpatrick, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

6600 Sanger Ave., Suite 30, Waco, Texas 76710 | 254-722-6247

In my approach to counseling with couples, I place a strong emphasis on communication skills enhancement. Useful "homework assignments" are given to couples to work on together between sessions, which provides the couple with a positive structure in the process of improving their relationship communication skills. Examples of "homework assignments" for couples are: "Rules for Communication", and "Needs Lists". Each person writes their own lists. Then, the lists are discussed for clarification and agreement. I review the assignments with the couple in the therapy sessions. I encourage the couple to use these written exercises on an on-going basis, in order to evaluate their progress.

Alternative and Integrated Practitioner | GRIT Kids Coaching

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.

David Ashburner, MA, LPC, CSAT, CHFP

Men and Couples Counselor

5801 W Plano Pkwy, Plano, Texas 75093 | 214-773-6201

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.

Salley Schmid, MS, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

6501 Sanger Avenue, Suite 102, Waco, Texas 76710 | 254-235-3500

I love to work with couples: dating, engaged, newly married, long time married, re-married (blended family). I love to help you set yourselves up for a long happy life, recover from a struggle such as infidelity or combine with a new spouse and family. Relationships are critical to our happiness yet a frequent source of great unhappiness. I believe that is because we think they should come naturally. Nothing could be farther from the truth. Humans, relationships and communication are immeasurably complex. The earlier you seek support in your relationship, the better the success rate. Couples counseling is not at its best as a last ditch effort. It is best a a preventive approach.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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?

Ashley Evans, CPC, MA, LPC Associate

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.

Couples Counselor

Wesley M. Eades, Ph.D., LPC, LMFT

Licensed Professional Counselor & Pastoral Psychotherapist

900 Austin Avenue, Suite 803, Waco, Texas 76701 | 254-498-7176

About half of my work is with couples. To paraphrase the Anna Karinan principle, happy couples are all very similar, but unhappy couples are often unhappy in very unique ways. I have 30+ years of experience in helping couples explore the sources of their discontent, and in helping them reframe their relationships in more life-giving ways. I rely largely on family systems theory and on the Enneagram system in helping couples.
