Counseling For Couples & Families
Counseling Services for Couples and Families
If you found yourself on this page after wondering if you need couples counseling, then there is a strong possibility you do.
Research shows that couples often wait too long to seek help for their relationship. In addition, there is a strong link between individual conditions, like depression and anxiety, and relationship distress. Why wait when research shows that 70% of couples who receive treatment experience positive results? Couples therapy is not just for people who are married. We encourage anyone in a committed romantic relationship to seek professional services.
Your therapist will initially meet with you and your partner, together and individually, for up to 2 hours. They will start by gathering background information about you, your relationship and the reason you are seeking treatment. This information helps your therapist understand your unique circumstances, establish a diagnosis, and set goals for therapy. In couple therapy, it is not the individuals who are the focus of treatment, it is the relationship. As such, much of the focus of treatment will be focused on interactions and communications between partners. Your therapist will determine if couples therapy is right for your situation. It is also possible that individual therapy with a separate psychotherapist may also be recommended, in conjunction to or instead of, couple counseling.
Symptoms Can Include:
Frequent arguments and difficulty compromising
Overinvolvement or enmeshment
Dismissal of partner's positive behaviors
Suspicion of partner's intentions
We have a strong belief in the power of human connection, and the amazing RESILIENCY that is an integral part of our being.
Our foundation is a trusting and genuine relationship, and we always aim to treat our clients with respect and compassion. We establish goals for therapy together and adjust them as needed. We also agree on a timeline for therapy. Services can be conducted in the form of individual, couple and family sessions, as needed. All sessions are confidential, and any limits to confidentiality are discussed in the first session.
We are based in Harlingen but work across McAllen, Brownsville, Laredo and Corpus Christi. Since we can schedule online appointments for our professional counseling services we are available throughout Texas.
