As a Certified Group Therapist and a member of the Houston Group Psychotherapy Society, Damian creates a supportive environment where every couple can feel safe to share their experiences. You’ll practice new communication and awareness skills and gain insight into your own relationship by listening to other couples’ histories. Average group sizes are between 3 and 5 couples. Group therapy for individuals is also available. Learn more.

Often as a follow-up to a workshop, Damian works directly with individual couples in private sessions. In this safe, structured environment, you’ll gain deeper insight into your relationship and practice the tools and skills you need to create a better relationship together. Coaching via telephone, Skype, or Facebook is also available for long-distance couples.  Learn more.

Most couples start their journey by taking part in the Imago couples workshop, the most powerful and effective relationship education in the world today. In a relaxed and emotionally safe environment, you’ll learn how to develop a conscious relationship and transform struggle into growth and connection. Couples walk away with new relationship tools they can put into practice immediately. Learn more.

Why You Should Open Your Baggage

Portrait of young happy couple with baggage, sitting on sofa. Isolated on whiteEveryone has seen pain and heartbreak in their lives. Even if we had a happy childhood, experiencing heartbreak starts from the moment we are brought into this world.

Unless we recognize this pain from an early age (which is not easy to do), it follows us into adulthood, and into our romantic relationships.

Even if we are not directly focusing on our past moments in pain, these experiences add up to make us the person we have become today. We keep our pain with us, carrying it like we would carry – you guessed it – baggage.

Opening this “baggage” and addressing past heartbreaks can be very scary, but is crucial to learning more about ourselves and living a free, happy life with our partner. More

The Importance of Boundaries and Self-Respect for Your Relationship

Are you the type of person that can’t say no to people?

Already, you have no time to breathe or relax. But then you get a call on Thursday. Your neighbor wants you to volunteer at a community event in the afternoon for a few hours.

And what do you do? You immediately say, “yes.” Followed by immediate regret.

Are You Fighting Over Minor Details? Stop “Right Fighting”

Do you know someone who has to be right all the time?

Maybe this person is your partner. Or you.

Let’s look at an example. A couple is getting ready to go to the woman’s mother’s house. The woman’s partner is taking a long time to get ready. And he is in a sour mood about how early they have to leave. He tells her that the drive to her mother’s house is only 10 minutes long. She tells him that the drive is closer to 30 minutes. If he doesn’t hurry up, they’ll be late and her mother will be upset. More
