From Inward Focus to Respect, Learn About Our Approach
Our approach at Relationship Counseling Austin with an eye on yourself rather than your partner. Be willing to change your own behavior first. Concerns about your partner’s behavior and temperament are important; and my aim is for you to be effectively influential. Couples counseling sessions are an opportunity for you to look inward for the source of your difficulties and your ability to influence others. Be willing to change and expand. As you change yourself you will increasingly influence those around you.
The objective in marriage coaching is to search for solutions, not for culprits. My goal is not to determine who’s at fault but to help you create a relationship of acceptance, understanding and honest communication. My intention is to help you quiet your feelings of anger and frustration and rebuild your hope for a loving, joyful and peaceful future. I ask that you approach marriage counseling with the hope of wonderful possibilities.
Marriage Coaching sessions are highly interactive. In every couples counseling session you will get information and practical tools you can begin to use in your marriage right away. It is important that you take action outside of your counseling sessions and apply what you have learned. Homework assignments will help you implement and solidify the changes necessary for optimal results.
My goal is to help you be honest with yourself and your partner. In doing so, I ask that you be willing to share your innermost thoughts and fears. It’s critical that you not use what you learn against yourself or against your partner. Whatever you discover about yourself or your partner must be honored and seen as an opportunity for greater growth and intimacy rather than as a tool to create guilt or justify getting even.

I don’t see anyone as flawed. Yes, we all make mistakes; nevertheless we’re all children of God, infinitely loving, capable and valuable. My aim is to help you see yourself and everyone in your life in the same light.
