Marriage Counseling & Couples Therapy in Dallas TX
Marriage and couples counseling is for two people in an intimate relationship that seek to better understand themselves, their partners and their relationships. While many people seek marriage counseling when their relationships are in trouble many seek counseling for other reasons. Among these are:
- Pre-Marital Counseling
- To recover those intense feelings of love
- To grow in the relationship
- To learn how to better face life’s challenges together
The decision to marry is one of the most important choices of one’s life. Couples in healthy marriages support and complement one another. They grow together, creating richer, fuller lives than they could have alone. Strong, healthy marriages will nourish and support not only the couple, but their future children, grandchildren and extended families. The couple you become may be important to lives that extend far beyond your own. Pre-marital counseling helps couples explore the meaning of commitment, and to understand their strengths and vulnerabilities as a married couple. It also aids in understanding their similarities and differences. Pre-marital counseling prepares them to meet the challenges of their future, and overcome them. Compatibility testing is important to identify potential problem areas and strengths within the relationship.

Biofeedback is the process of monitoring physiological responses such as heart rate, skin temperature, brain waves, or muscle tension and turning these physiological signals into meaningful information and feeding back the information to the person being monitored in order to increase their awareness of mental and physical distress.
The power of biofeedback is in the training that results. Feedback leads to awareness and awareness leads to learning and control.
The goal is to recognize minor mental and physical symptoms early and to reduce them before they become major symptoms.
