Couples often seek couples or marriage counseling when the relationship is at a standstill or unsure whether or not the relationship is worth salvaging. This type of therapy can benefit families with children who have been affected by relationship issues such as divorce, and confront the source of the conflict.

Treatment techniques may include the following depending on the therapist:

  • Gottman Method
  • Narrative Therapy
  • Emotionally Focused Therapy
  • Positive Psychology
  • Imago Relationship Therapy
  • Analyzing Your Communication
  • Getting to the root of the problem
  • Enhancing Intimacy
  • Individual Counseling
  • Couple Retreat

When a relationship is showing signs of addiction, emotional abuse, sexual abuse, or severe depression, seek guidance from a counselor immediately, for your safety and your partner.

Intimacy problems widely occur behind a variety of closed doors. Conflicts may include a loss of harmony between the sheets, a lack of sexual desire between either partners or failure in communication. There are often psychological factors that may contribute to a sexual disorder such as erectile dysfunction, or a lowered desire after a new mother has given birth. Intimacy issues are common, but if one or more become severe and there is no resolution in sight, it may be time to seek therapy for guidance.

Steps to take for treating intimacy issues begin with:

•    Psychosexual Therapy: this technique allows couples to express themselves in a safe environment with a trusted and supportive professional.

•    Relationship Counseling: healthy relationships require strong connections and time to build trust. Whatever the issue, a counselor can work with individuals together or separately to overcome the problem.

This tribe will go through the Conquer Series, the battle plan for purity.

This series is for any man who has ever struggled with:

  • lust
  • sexual addiction
  • pornography

At some point, everyone will be tempted to sin sexually. How we respond can have severe consequences that may affect us for a long time.

This course is 10 weeks in duration with 1 day added for introduction and to sign confidentiality agreements. This will be an intimate time, a safe place, and serves men better when a commitment to attend is made. *Come join us as we learn together and conquer! 

Ultimately we want to help people who feel far from God to become fully devoted followers of Jesus.

Healthy Relationships is a multisession, small-group, skills-building program for men and women living with HIV/AIDS. The program is designed to reduce participants’ stress related to safer sexual behaviors and disclosure of their serostatus to family, friends, and sex partners. The program is based on social cognitive theory, which states that people learn by observing others successfully practicing new behavior.

  • Defining stress and reinforcing coping skills with HIV-positive people across three life areas:
  • Disclosing to family and friends
  • Disclosing to sex partners and
  • Building healthier and safer relationships
  • Using modeling, role-play, and feedback to teach and practice skills related to coping with stress.
  • Teaching decision-making skills around the issue of disclosure of HIV status.
  • We provide participants with personal feedback reports to motivate a change in risky behaviors and continuance of protective behaviors.
  • We use popular movie clips to set up disclosure and risk-reduction scenarios to stimulate discussions and role-plays.

Restorative Justice (RJ) creates opportunities to right relationships among individuals, communities, and even systems. It invites people to identify and name harm (interpersonal, generational, systemic) and those who have done harm to make it right or be accountable.

At times RJ looks like advocacy, demonstrations, speaking truth to power, and at other times it looks like a facilitated conversation held in the presence of a loving community.

Community Circles

Circles are a powerful symbol of community, inclusion, equity, and wholeness.

At Empower House, we sit in circles with youth, adults, families, and our staff. Through circle practice, we build community, repair harm, learn together, work through conflict and heal.

Suppose you or a loved one is seeking an immigration waiver or filing to petition a judge to grant a suspension of deportation. In that case, a clinical evaluation can help strengthen your case. Four types of immigration waivers can benefit from a clinical mental health evaluation:

  • Extreme Hardship Waivers (I-601)
  • U-Visa (Victims of Crime)
  • Violence Against Women Act (VAWA-Domestic Violence)
  • Political Asylum

Understanding that each individual’s experience is unique, a safe environment is provided to help the client report any underlying circumstances to help present a compelling case. My personal experience attending St. Mary’s University allowed me to meet peers from across the globe. Traveling throughout Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East further reinforced my admiration and respect for other cultures and faiths.

I am privileged to have worked on evaluations for people from Mexico, Central & South America, China, and India. As a bilingual clinician licensed by the Texas Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors, I am also a graduate of the Immigration Evaluation Institute.

Coaching is a bit different from traditional psychotherapy or counseling in that its focus is more goal-directed.

Whereas traditional therapy may have you spend weeks exploring past events to recognize how they have contributed to current moods and behaviors, parenting coaching helps you choose a goal (get my child to do their homework without a daily tantrum) and offers tried and true techniques to help get the outcomes you desire.

Parenting coaching is for any parent who wishes to resolve behavioral struggles with their children. These struggles can include typical daily struggles such as:

  • Morning routines
  • Homework struggles
  • Sibling bickering

But coaching can also help with more demanding behaviors that push the parent’s skillset. These include:

  • Dealing with a strong-willed child
  • Getting a picky eater to eat
  • Engaging with an angry or defiant teenager
  • Guiding a child with Attention Deficit issues
