Marriage & Couples Online Counseling

As a Plano, TX-based marriage and family therapy practice, Greater House Counseling understands the complexities of romantic relationships. Relationships often start out exciting and fulfilling, but over time, they can become stale or even toxic. Our culture may excel at launching relationships, but it doesn't always provide the necessary support for couples to navigate the highs and lows of lifelong partnership. That's where we come in.

At Greater House Counseling, we are here to help couples at all stages of their relationship. Whether your relationship needs a little encouragement or requires a major overhaul of interactional patterns, we have the expertise to guide you through. Our experienced therapists have helped countless couples with various challenges, including parenting, recovering from the aftermath of an affair, navigating the complexities of blended families, improving sexual intimacy, and halting negative generational patterns.

One of the key approaches we use in our couples and marriage counseling isEmotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT). EFCT is a highly effective approach that focuses on improving emotional connection and strengthening the bond between partners. It helps couples identify and change negative patterns of interaction and promotes healthy communication, emotional regulation, and intimacy.

In addition to EFCT, we also utilize other evidence-based approaches such as Internal Family Systems (IFS) theory, Attachment-based therapy, Humanistic Therapy, and Trauma-informed therapies. These approaches help us address individual issues that may impact the couple's dynamics, such as emotional regulation, trauma triggers from childhood, and unresolved personal experiences. IFS and Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) are commonly used treatments for individual work, which can greatly enhance the effectiveness of the couple's therapy.

Our telehealth marriage counseling services at Greater House Counseling offer convenience and accessibility for couples who prefer remote sessions. With the use of secure and confidential online platforms, couples can receive professional counseling from the comfort of their own homes. Our experienced therapists are skilled in providing compassionate and effective counseling services through telehealth, ensuring that you can receive the support you need regardless of your location.

So, if you're facing challenges in your romantic relationship, Greater House Counseling is here to help. With our expertise in couples and marriage counseling, we can assist you in navigating through parenting, affair recovery, blended families, sexual intimacy, and other issues. Our evidence-based approaches, including EFCT, IFS, Attachment, Humanistic, and trauma-informed therapies combined with our telehealth services, make us a reliable and accessible resource for couples seeking professional support. Don't hesitate to reach out to us and take the first step towards improving your relationship.
