Marriage Counseling & Strengthening Your Relationship

Professional Associations and Memberships

I Have Good News For You.
With God's Help Your Marriage Can Be Restored!

My Name is Joseph Bordelon and I'm Here to Help.

An initial session with an Austin marriage counselor will help me find out what each individual is doing, or not doing, that is causing harm to the relationship. We then create a plan to facilitate the hard work of addressing unresolved issues. I look for reoccurring behavior patterns that have created past wounds or continue to cause harm.  In my experience, once we uncover these issues we can begin the healing process which will lead to more intimacy, trust and respect between partners.

COMMON RELATIONSHIP ISSUES

You probably wish your marriage was not so difficult. You might want to learn to communicate without fighting. You may like to rekindle the romance and love you used to have or just have your spouse be more of a support to you.

I have got some good news for you. There is help! Austin couples counseling is effective for couples at any stage of their relationship whether they are married or not. As a state Licensed Professional Counselor, I specialize in working with couples in crisis and considering divorce. These are couples who are argue more than normal, couples who are at a point where they don't know what to do, couples who have slowly drifted apart and don't feel connected to their partner. I will help you survive and have stability at home. As we work through difficult issues, you will become more at peace and find healing. I will also help you build your relationship. With God's help, not only will you survive, but you will thrive!

DIVORCE

When one spouse wants a divorce and the other one does not is probably one of the most challenging situations in a relationship. Careful steps must be taken to preserve whatever stability is present. I help the individuals consider their specific reasons for what they want and how the other person feels.

INFIDELITY

Infidelity is probably one of the most difficult issues to deal with in a relationship. No one thinks it will happen to them. I do not take sides or point fingers. The truth is that both people may have some degree of responsibility. I will help with knowing what the next steps you need to take as a couple and how to rebuild trust.

SEX & INTIMACY

Sex is one of the most important things in a relationship. It can be exciting, complicated, and frustrating. It can be quite difficult when two people value sex differently. I will help you learn to talk openly about your sexual desires and preferences to create more intimacy within sex.

BLENDED FAMILIES

Here are some of the common issues that I can help you work through: One parent may have no experience, changes in family relationships to make room for the blended family, there can be difficulty in children accepting a new parent, there may be changes in family traditions and the starting of new traditions.

COMMUNICATION

Effective communication is so important for all relationships.  It can be very challenging to communicate feelings, resolve conflicts and share with each other.   It is very important to learn the skills it takes to communicate so you can have the marriage that you have always wanted. As your Austin relationship counselor I will help you establish a better dialogue with your partner and learn how to share your feelings and address issues with less conflict. through this, it is possible to create a relationship that is healthier, more resilient, and more emotionally fulfilling. I will help you learn the tools it takes to communicate effectively with Active Listening, Sharing emotions without judgement and by Using positive language.

He Understands the Male and Female Point of View

“We have been extremely pleased with Joseph. He is the first counselor (FINALLY) that has been able to help us with our marriage. He understands the male and female point of view which tends to be VERY hard to find in a counselor. We started with him 6 months ago and our marriage is better than it has ever been. I would 100% recommend Joseph to anyone. He is fantastic!”

COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT AUSTIN MARRIAGE COUNSELING

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

A 50 minute individual session is $125.
A 75 minute couples session is $185.

If you are not able to afford this, please still call.  It is important to me that anyone who needs counseling, gets the help that they can afford.

DO YOU ACCEPT INSURANCE?

Yes, I accept Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO and Cigna at this time. To verify benefits I will need your Name, Date of Birth & Member ID.

DOES COUNSELING ACTUALLY WORK?

If an individual is truly open and ready to address their own issues, therapy is highly beneficial. However if an individual is not open, then therapy can actually create a negative experience for them.

IS THERAPY CONFIDENTIAL?

Yes. Information is not disclosed without written permission. However, there are a few exceptions to this rule. Exceptions include: Suspected child abuse or dependent adult or elder abuse.

WILL COUNSELING MAKE THINGS WORSE?

No. Nothing is changing we are simply just discussing the issues that the couple has not been able to on their own. However if both people do not agree with any suggested change it can cause a conflict that needs to be resolved. Any suggested change is for the betterment of the relationship.

WHEN CAN I EXPECT RESULTS?

If an individual is open and ready to address their own issues, you can expect to feel results within the first session. Once you start following through with what is discussed within the session, you will begin to feel even better about your situation. This is then built upon and repeated in follow up sessions.

DO YOU TAKE SIDES?

No. As an impartial couples counselor, I do not side with the man or the woman. I side with the Truth. At times, depending on the issue being discuss, it may feel like I am focusing more on the man or the woman depending on who has more culpability surrounding that issue.

WHAT IS CHRISTIAN COUNSELING?

Christian Counseling uses the science of psychology within the context of our Christian faith to address issues.  It is my belief that we cannot achieve true healing without Jesus Christ.  He is the true counselor.  I integrate best practices in the field of counseling with our faith in Jesus Christ to bring about healing.  Each client is different in regards to what degree they are comfortable incorporating their faith into the counseling process.  We discuss this upfront and find out what is right for you!  

One of the hardest things about counseling is taking that first step by trying to find the right relationship counselor to help guide you. We may not know each other yet but it is my hope that as you read through this site you will become more comfortable with me and my process. Please let me know if you have any questions.
