Marriage and Couples Counseling Services

Premarital Counseling

How many times have you heard someone say, “If I only knew then what I know now?” This wisdom and skill building is what we hope to impart upon the couples we work with in couples counseling. Research clearly indicates that the better a couples maintenance of the relationship, the better their long-term outcome. Learn best practices to help your relationship through the road ahead.

Couples Counseling

“We don’t know how to communicate with each other” is a phrase we often hear from many of the couples who come to us for help. If so, we can be of service to help assess and discuss strategies to validate each partner’s concerns as well as figure out new pathways to create the relationship you both desire. Some of our therapists have training in Gottman Couples Counseling which is the most evidenced based practice for couples counseling. With 40 years of research and thousands of couples that have been studied, it has scientifically based specific interventions for couples to help them through conflict.

LGBTQ Couples Counseling

Gay couples encounter some unique issues in their relationships, and we are here to help. Our couples therapists will work with you to solve conflicts, feel more connected, and work to help heal and grow your relationship. If you would prefer a gay therapist for your couples counseling, let our scheduling person know, and we will match you with the appropriate provider.

ADHD Couples Counseling

ADHD tends to have profound effects on intimate relationships. Running late, miscommunication, remembering things, acting impulsively, getting distracted are all par for the course with ADHD and this tends to frustrate partners. We can help you slow down the issues and work to create effective ways to communicate. We also educate you on how to build neural capacity and grow to understand of each partner’s unique neurodiversity.

High conflict couples Counseling

Some relationships are volatile. These couples have distinct opinions about what they love and hate, and sometimes it also means they have difficulty reconciling conflict within their relationships. Arguments start fast and are not often resolved. We have therapists who specialize in helping those couples overcome their patterns and create better habits in their relationships.

Sex Positive Couples Counseling

In a nutshell, sex positive couples counseling means that therapists are not shaming of any sexual preference. These therapists are also trained in best practices for building intimacy within partnerships, and they are also trained in best practices for those relationships which are non-monogamous.

Just Mind has many Gottman trained therapists which use the most evidence based approach to couples therapy (40 years of research and thousands of couples studied). Gottman therapists can help you more quickly get to the root of the problems you are encountering and help you with evidence based best practices and structured interventions to help you work through difficulties in your relationship. We believe this is part of what makes us a leader in Austin for marriage & couples counseling.

What Our Clients Say

This is my first experience with therapy so I have nothing to compare it to. But I’d say my expectations have been met so far. We are still in the early stages of our counseling relationship but our ability to communicate has improved steadily. My therapist has helped me with my anxiety and I’ve made significant progress since starting these sessions.

Couples Therapy Client

Adam is amazing, the process is easy and I am definitely seeing results. I can not stress enough how important Adam has been in our growth as a couple and how he has been a guiding hand steering us through this journey. I am grateful to have found Just Mind.

Couples Therapy Client

We really like Eva and feel like our sessions have been very helpful! I just recommended Just Mind to a friend the other day.

Couples Therapy Client

We made an appointment for couples therapy and we didn’t know what to expect. We just knew we were tired of not getting along as well as we once did. From the first phone call, everyone at Just Mind was helpful and worked with us for scheduling and finding someone who took our insurance. We have been seeing our therapist for several months now and worked hard on our relationship and I believe we have learned things that have greatly helped our relationships and communication with one another. I think we just might be a success story!
