Licensed Professional Counselor

In 76051 - Nearby to Westlake.

Communication and boundaries are the key to any healthy relationship! Whether best friends, mother/daughter, co-workers, ex spouses. Learn how to take the emotion out of communicating truth in a respectful and appropriate manner and find incredible peace in your life. Expectations of other people's behavior is toxic. Expecting ourselves to be responsible for another person's happiness is exhausting and ridiculous. Learn what healthy relationships look like - you will love it!

Licensed Professional Counselor

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.

Licensed Professional Counselor-Supervisor; Certified Anger Management Specialist; Certified Domestic Violence Specialist

In 76016 - Nearby to Westlake.

Couples desire a relationship with their partner to be loving, caring, honest, and trustworthy. At times, poor communication and a lack of skills can hinder the development of a loving relationship. At Christ Centered Counseling we assist couples with learning the value of their relationship from a biblical perspective. Couples can expect to utilize Scripture, prayer, and communication skills to enhance their relationship and to work through challenges that hinder them from growing together in Christlike unity.

Believing that marriage is the building block of families and society, we are strong advocates for healthy marriages. While many are content to help couples survive marriage, we want marriages to thrive. We have experience in helping couples to improve communication, recover from infidelity, reconnect sexually, develop solid co-parenting skills, and build intimacy on several levels - not the least of which is the spiritual health of the marriage. We help couples work within their personalities and strengths to build a strong marriage.

Melanie Skipper-Relyea, MHR, LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 75051 - Nearby to Westlake.

When couples choose Melanie as their therapist, they get an advocate for the relationship--not to pick sides. Any coupling is the meeting of two cultures: two completely different people with completely different experiences, values, strengths, and ways to see the world. Melanie will be happy to point out areas that are strengths in your relationship, and help each person craft responses that yield communication instead of conflict. Same-sex and opposite-sex couples welcome.

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

David Ashburner, MA, LPC, CSAT, CHFP

Men and Couples Counselor

In 76006 - Nearby to Westlake.

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.

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

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

Marriage Counseling, Sex/Porn Addiction, PTSD

In 75034 - Nearby to Westlake.

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.

Ashley Evans, CPC, MA, LPC Associate
Couples Counselor

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. Additionally, I work with clients struggling with porn addiction or sexually compulsive behaviors which can have detrimental effects on a relationship.

We also specialize in individuals who are not thrilled with the idea of going to therapy (especially men!). Call us today and let us explore what healthier functioning and more intimacy looks like.

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA LPC NCC

Psychotherapist

In 76262 - Nearby to Westlake.

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.

Couples Counselor

Donald Baer, LPC, LMFT

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 76104 - Nearby to Westlake.

I work with married couples, as well as other couples in long-term relationships. In some cases, divorce, or the threat of divorce, is in the air. Sometimes, the same arguments come up over and over again, and never get resolved. Living with another person has many benefits, but it also often means there will be disagreements between the two of you. After all, you are two different people! Couples counseling can work wonders toward resolving some of those issues, while also teaching you how to thrive in spite of the issues that can't be fully resolved.

Licensed Professional Counselors & Counselor Interns

In 76201 - Nearby to Westlake.

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.

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

In 76013 - Nearby to Westlake.

Raising children can be stressful and not always easy! I work with co-parents that find themselves struggling to reach mutually agreeable parenting decisions that are in the best interest of the child(ren). Learn to increase communication, develop agreeable parenting plans and decrease the emotionality that is involved when going through separation/divorce. Working with a therapist to address these issues before the courts get involved is less expensive, less time consuming and way less stressful than being involved in on-going litigation.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist - Supervisor

In 75034 - Nearby to Westlake.

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.

Couples come to counseling because they are at an impasse--either they argue too much or they have stopped talking altogether. Maybe the intimacy is gone. Reconnecting is possible once the source of the conflict is resolved. Being flexible, respecftul, forgiving, and truly "hearing" your partner are key traits needed to resolve issues damaging your relationship.

In 75287 - Nearby to Westlake.

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.)
