How Our Therapists in Fort Worth Help Couples
We can help whether you have been together for 5 months or 50 years. Our Christian marriage counselors provide a therapeutic environment rich with practical skills and biblical encouragement for the purpose of developing and growing intimacy within your marriage. Some couples desire “tune-ups”, while others a completely re-built relationship. Our Fort Worth therapists help with both. View our why us page to see how we are different.
Couples Therapy and the Role of the Counselor
The process starts by filling out an intake form, where each spouse shares some of the things he or she is struggling with as well as some of the goals for the relationship. After this, you and your spouse will arrive for your first appointment. Your counselor will ask some questions to get to know each of you, as well as allow for questions to be asked. Counseling goals will be communicated in order to develop a plan. Number of sessions will vary depending on the couple. Throughout the process, each couple will uncover relational patterns, learn healthy ones, and build a Christian foundation for marriage. Scroll down to view the common issues we see in our office.

When It's Time to Seek Counseling
Maybe you’re wondering when it’s time to seek marriage counseling? You feel distant from your spouse, don’t communicate well, or maybe your spouse had a blowup and you’ve never seen this before. These are understandable reasons for coming to couples therapy. On the other hand, we have seen couples within marriages that desire tune-ups, working through parenting differences, and so on. Be encouraged. You can benefit from counseling if you are going through relational stress or working through a difference, no matter how you rate your marriage.
We strive to be proficient in multiple marriage counseling issues. This list is not exhaustive. Please contact us with any questions you may have.

Three Quick Tips for Healthy Marriages
1. Support is key. Having someone to talk too and pray with outside of your spouse is important. A close Christian friend is ideal.
2. Have fun. Did you know that fun resets relationships? Spouses scheduling fun events for their relationship is essential.
3. Focus on what you can change. What behaviors come to mind that might influence, not necessarily cause, your husband or wife to respond in a certain way? These are great things to work on.
We are proud to offer Fort Worth with weekend marriage intensives. Not all couples can schedule counseling every week for an extended period of time.
