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.

How an Imago Marriage Therapy Workshop Can Improve Your Relationship

Has anyone ever taught you how to be in a relationship?

This is a question I ask when I am first discussing Imago techniques and teachings to couples that are new to this theory. When we are young, we go to school to learn different subject matter: math, reading, writing, and so on. But there is so much more to life and love that we are not taught.

If you’re feeling lost in your relationship and disconnected from your partner, Imago can provide you with a wealth of tools to use to mend things. Reach out to us now and we’ll talk about your specific situation and how we can help you reconnect with your unique partner. Attempt to fix things without the proper tools and you can actually increase the likelihood that you will fail to resolve your conflicts in a positive way.

Obviously, we can’t get that specific in a blog post, but we can focus on certain general skills that help couples navigate conflicts and rough areas in relationships. More

Navigating Unique Pressures for LGBT Couples

It has never been easy to be in an LGBT relationship, especially if you’re living in Texas. Couples have always had extra pressures to define their relationship (or keep it a secret). Societal changes over the years have allowed for some great progress in accepting and allowing LGBT couples to express their love, but many LGBT couples still feel isolated or like they have extra pressure on them.

Case in point: the recent legalization of same-sex marriage.

Relationship Help for Empty-Nesters: Start a Project to Start Reconnecting

Coming home to an empty nest can be an awkward transition for you and your spouse. It may seem too quiet, lonely, or just altogether strange. For the first time in years, it’s just you two for dinners, weekends, and nights in at home.

And if retirement is on the horizon, the two of you may have to prepare for an even bigger change. So how do you transition into this new living situation while growing and strengthening your relationship? More
