Fee: The fee for the “Getting the Love You Want” workshop is $800 per couple. Checks are preferred method of payment. A $400 deposit with your completed registration (below) reserves a space for you, with the balance due two weeks before the beginning of the Workshop. The fee includes the workshop itself and a personal workbook for each of you. If you refer another couple (in advance only) who actually attends the workshop with you, you’ll receive a $150 rebate after the workshop. If you refer two couples who attend with you, you’ll get a $400 rebate after the workshop!

Food and hotel accommodations are not provided. You are encouraged to stay at a hotel the entire weekend in order to sharpen the focus on your relationship, but it is certainly not required. Convenient hotel suggestions will be made available to workshop participants with your registration confirmation (via email).

NOTE: NO REGISTRATION CONFIRMATION WILL BE FINAL until ALL proceeds of tuition fee are actually received by Presenter’s bank, irrespective of method of payment, or amount or time of payment. Each workshop confirmation is subject to a ‘FIRST COME, FIRST SERVE’ policy, which refers strictly to BOTH receipt of the completed Registration form, AND also the timely bank funding of the associated $800 tuition fee.

By your submittal of this registration, you affirm that you have both read, agreed to, and accepted all terms and conditions concerning refunds. Returned checks will be assessed $25 collection fee plus bank charges.

Cancellation Policy: If the Workshop is cancelled by the presenter, a full refund of all payments will be made. If you cancel more than seven days prior to the workshop, refunds will be made by check (irregardless of method of payment), mailed within 48 hours of your email notice, for the full amount less a $75 processing fee.

If you cancel seven days (6:30 p.m. of the Friday before) or less prior to the Workshop, then registration payments are non-refundable. However, you may use the funds already paid toward ANY other future Couples Workshop dates that you desire, provided that they are still being offered by Mr. Duplechain AND that you re-register in sufficient time that there is space availability. This latter part of the transfer policy is necessary only because of the limited space in the Couples Workshop and frequent waiting lists.

Your registration is non-refundable if:
1) You cancel seven days or less prior to the Workshop
2) If you do not show up for the Workshop
3) You do not complete the Workshop

: If after participating in the entire workshop, you believe the experience you’ve received isn’t beneficial to you, and you give written notice to Presenter within an hour after the end of the workshop, your money less $150 for materials will be refunded to you within five (5) business days. No explanation is required. You have our promise that you will both enjoy and gain many benefits from this powerful workshop!

Map with directions to the workshop will be emailed with your registration confirmation.

For questions, feel free to phone (713-409-8111) or email.

If you are considering relationship or marriage counseling in Houston for the first time, determining what services you want and which counselor to work with can be a challenge. It’s important to take into consideration both objective qualifications of a Houston counselor’s licensing, credentials, and professional training as well as your own gut feeling or comfort level with a counselor.

In addition to academic training, it is important that your Houston counselor continues to look at his or her own issues. What has been and is the counselor’s own journey in both counseling and marriage are very good questions to pose. Continuing to seek ‘consultation’ or ‘supervision’ from an objective counselor, or ‘getting tuneups from their own counselor’ on their personal issues, gives all counselors increased capacity for self-reflection, introspection, and the ability to listen with compassion. Also important, make very sure the counselor is pro-marriage and committed love relationships, and not (subtly or not) supportive of the all-too-common “Divorce is no big deal” school of counseling in Houston.

Houston is full of choices for couples and marriage counseling. Listen to your intuition or gut feeling to the therapist you’re considering. A feeling of rapport and safety between the two of you (us?) is essential for successful therapy. In our initial session, notice how it feels to be with me:

  • Do you feel comfortable?
  • Do I listen?
  • Do you feel that you will be able to trust me?

In couples counseling you can learn to:

  • Process difficult emotions
  • Recognize strengths
  • Overcome trauma and stress
  • Build resources and resilience
  • Work through loss and grief
  • Develop trust in your body and its responses
  • Develop healthy boundaries
  • Resolve conflict
  • Let go of limiting beliefs and thought patterns
  • Manage intense emotions
  • Decrease mood problems
  • Decrease anxiety
  • Learn how to self soothe
  • Balance needs for intimacy and autonomy
  • Achieve greater emotional awareness and depth
  • Learn how to assert yourself in healthy ways
  • Connect to your essential nature
  • Connect to your inner wisdom/knowing
  • Get the marriage or relationship of your dreams

Counseling requires collaboration between counselor and client characterized by a commitment of time and energy, as well as financial resources. You may expect to receive privacy, confidentiality, respect, and an environment of safety and compassion at my Houston office. Generally speaking, my relationship counseling approach with couples is IMAGO. It involves a deep look at underlying issues and, if appropriate, trauma release, with the aim of personal transformation and freer, more conscious and creative living with your spouse.

Yet you still want to take your relationship to the next, and highest, level, despite now having discovered some roadblocks in your way. You may be ready for a Houston marriage counselor to work with you by telephone or in person.

Houston Marriage Counseling
Why You Should Consider It

With couples counseling, a couple can achieve safety, commitment, communication, connection and passion. You can learn about and understand commitment, the different stages of all relationships, and how to communicate with one another.

Relationship advice and coaching is almost always helpful for any relationship no matter what stage the partnership is in. If you feel the desire to reconnect with someone you love but are not sure how, our couples counseling is exactly what you need. I have worked with hundreds of couples for many years using at least arguably the most powerful approach to relationships.

It is called Imago Relationship Therapy. This approach has become the most renowned and used approach by more marriage counselors and relationship therapists around the world than any other modality, for several decades now.
