These could be some early signs of problems brewing within your family or marriage. Sometimes it can be a bit too overwhelming to resolve things on your own. Such issues can affect the mental and physical well-being of the whole family. Perhaps it is time to step back and seek help before things take turn for the worse.

Our qualified licensed MFT practitioner works with couples and families to identify underlying issues and create an environment where they can comfortably talk about their apparent fears, pain and anger. 

At the very heart of it, we focus on building an open, honest and friendly channel of communication between partners and family members. This is the first step towards learning new and better ways to communicate, to resolve conflicts, to find meaningful solutions and above all, to empathise with each other regardless of the challenges.

Our Marriage and Family Therapy is a solution-focused, short-term counseling that usually takes an average of 12-15 sessions. Some families may need more sessions and that typically depends on the complexity and severity of problems they are facing.

Constant feelings of unhappiness or disappointment in your relationship? Does a conversation between you two often end up in a bitter argument? Is it getting increasingly difficult to share your thoughts with your partner?

If you believe your relationship is hitting a rough patch and you can’t sort out your differences on your own anymore, it is time to go for couples therapy. The sad truth is many couples try going for counselling when a significant amount of damage has already been done. While it is never too late, addressing the problems sooner is likely to be less time and effort consuming.

At 180 Therapy PLLC, we offer solution-oriented COUPLES THERAPY to our customers in Mansfield, Texas. Our licensed and state certified therapist has in-depth expertise and experience to offer counseling, aimed to help partners improve their relationship with the help of right technique and intervention.

The core of our Couples Therapy is built on providing an opportunity to partners where they can openly talk about their expectations, identify weak links and develop a better understanding of their differences. We strongly believe that clear communication is the first step towards resolving any issue, big or small.

We provide a safe and conducive environment for you to bring up things that are otherwise difficult to talk about in your day to day settings for the fear of being misunderstood, misinterpreted or worse yet ignored. We work together to identify negative patterns, to build trust and get the relationship back on track, alive and kicking.

Couples Therapy is a short-term therapy that typically involves both partners. However, there are situations where one partner is not willing to engage. In that case, out therapist can work with just one partner to work out the best solution.

Divorce Group Therapy

Your life will no longer be the same after a divorce. Whether it was a mutual decision or not, it is likely to leave you with scars that will take some time to heal. For some, divorce from an abusive, adulterous and non-committal spouse may be a relief. Even in such cases, adjusting to a new life after divorce can be frightening and overwhelming.
