Two Choices for a Marriage Retreat in Texas - The Option of "Marriage Workshops" Texas

Marriage Workshops offered in Texas 

Romantic getaways are great when you are getting along wonderfully, and you'd like an escape. There's a great style of retreat Texas has to offer. They are called "Marriage Workshops." Here you'll plan to spend a weekend in a group setting to improve your intimate bond. 

Many of our Couples Therapy Inc. therapists hold these in their private clinical practices. They include Angela Voegele, Dr. Scott Wolfe and Dr. Mike McNulty, who hold these psycho-educational retreats across the USA. Find one of the many retreats Texas has to offer. Don and Carey Cole (not affiliated with Couples Therapy Inc.) offer their "Art and Science of Love" workshops on a regular basis in Houston.

"Private Therapeutic Retreats:" Marriage Counseling Retreats in Texas


1. Choose a licensed professional

Many of the psycho-educational retreats Texas has to offer aren't held by licensed psychologists, social workers, mental health counselors or marriage and family therapists. And that can be perfectly fine if massage, margaritas, and a night of dancing in the moonlight is what you have in mind.

But when trouble arises in your intimate relationship, you need just one licensed mental health, professional invested in improving your marriage by offering you the best help more than 40 years of research can provide. 

Call us "old fashioned" but we take objection to hosts who sponsor fun retreats or educationally oriented retreats when they extend their offerings and targeting troubled couples in need of skilled, professional help. There's no law against it. But when it comes to resolving deeper emotional issues don't leave it in the hands of the unlicensed.

Choose someone with not only an advanced degree in mental health, but someone who also has specialized training in couples therapy, sex therapy, marriage counseling, discernment counseling, or other specialized training targeting these issues.

2. Quick, targeted, professional help. Couples retreat in Texas with a collective wisdom of over five hundred years.

In contrast, we only work with licensed mental health counselors that are dedicated to the work of helping troubled couples. We have over 500 years of collective wisdom in helping the most challenging issues that marriages present. These aren't gimmicks we use, but proven science-based tools perfected to help couples needing help.

  • Highly-detailed assessment. We call it The BIG BIG Book. We get to know you thoroughly before you arrive.
  • We work with marriages in severe distress...even "Last Shot" couples who are divorcing or have moved out.
  • Team Support. We only work with couples and have the most advanced practitioners of couples therapy on the planet. Our team learns from each other. Twenty-two Masters and Doctoral-Level clinicians.  Seven Gottman Certified Therapists. Four Gottman Master Trainers. In-house support, teamwork, and advice.

3. The most extensive couples assessment available today for our marriage retreat Texas location. We call it "The BIG BIG Book of Intimate Relationships."

We begin with an extensive individual and relationship assessment: The most complete assessment you'll find available today.

  • You finish it online in the privacy of your home or office.
  • Your Couples Therapist then studies, scores, and analyzes your every word side-by-side.
  • You are preparing to see us and we then prepare to see you!

This makes your Couples Retreat Texas an even more powerful experience. In completing the BIG BIG Book, you're a key factor in enhancing your therapist's effectiveness.
