Engaged and Married Couples

Marriage is meant to be our most fulfilling human connection and all marriages have areas of growth that can cause friction in the relationship. Southlake Christian Counseling equips couples with real solutions that can make significant positive differences in the way spouses relate to one another. Counseling is an excellent resource to get new ideas to resolve the issues that are repeatedly showing up in the interactions between spouses.

Engaged couples are able to utilize the highly effective pre-marriage tool called Prepare-Enrich.  The reports provided from the online assessment are used within the counseling session to help the soon-to-be bride and groom get off on the right foot in many areas where conflict is common in marriage.

Individual Counseling

Life moves at a fast pace and there are a variety of decisions that must be made every day. Many clients of SCC share that they enjoy attending counseling because it provides them with a comfortable environment where they can sort through past experiences and the current life choices that they face. SCC therapists and life coach work with individual clients regarding a variety of issues and decisions. Some include: relationship & family concerns, anxiety/depression, career path choices, life transitions and the list goes on.

Trauma and Abuse Recovery

Within every community, toxic people can be found hiding in families, couples, companies, and places of worship. The cryptic nature of psychological abuse involves repetitious mind games played by one individual or a group of people. Psychological abuse leaves no bruises. There are no broken bones. There are no holes in the walls. The bruises, brokenness, and holes are held tightly within the target of the abuse.

For survivors of this type of abuse, it is vitally important that they work with a trauma-informed therapist who understands all the dynamics that occur when someone has been emotionally and psychologically abused.
