Marriage Counseling

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

Southlake Christian Counseling therapists work with couples who desire greater marriage unity, facing blended family concerns, infidelity restoration, conflict resolution, communication challenges, parenting, and life-stage transitions.

Engaged couples are able to utilize the highly effective pre-marriage tool called PREPARE/ENRICH.  The report provided from the assessment is used within the counseling session to help the couple discuss their unique strengths and areas where conflict is common within marriage.

Healing from Hidden Abuse

Within every community, toxic people can be found hiding in families, couples, companies, and places of worship. The cryptic nature of hidden abuse involves repetitious mind games played by one individual or a group of people. Some forms of abuse leave 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 abuse, it is vitally important they work with a trauma-informed therapist who understands all the dynamics that occur when someone has experienced the trauma of abuse in its many forms.
