Finding The Right Couples Therapist Can Be Frustrating.
I want to help you find what you’ve been searching for.
I’m Mark cagle
An Affair recovery specialist in Dallas TX
You have scoured the internet looking for answers, for help, for assistance… You have been bombarded with information, and your brain is on overload.
With so much information and so many therapist in Dallas, how can you be sure you’ve found the right one?
Most therapists use this page to talk about them- their education, their license, their experience… and I’ll get to that in a minute. (Because right now you don’t care about any of that.)
First, I wanted to talk about why you’re here- why you’re bothering to read this page in the first place.
I have designed this page to help you determine if I may be a great fit for you right away. That way, if you don’t feel like I’m a good fit, you can move on to one of the hundreds of other therapists.
Whether you’ve become exhausted having the same fight over and over again, you’re dealing with the discovery of your partner’s infidelity, or you’re looking to build a more satisfying intimate relationship with your partner, I can help.
I work really intensely with my couples, meeting weekly for 90 minutes each week. It’s an investment of both time and money that I find the couples that are really ready to work on their marriage are willing to make.
I have found that meeting this way helps my couples to start seeing results in just a few months.
What sets me apart from other counselors?
Unlike other therapists who say they work with couples, couples are my specialty. Helping couples navigate the treacherous waters of intimate love is my passion.
With the ability to schedule appointments online 24 hours a day, finding a time to come in for therapy has never been easier. I also offer evening and Saturday appointments to fit your busy schedule.
I have specific training to help couples change the fabric of their relationships- from bad to good or good to great. I help couples make swift and permanent changes; I don’t want you to be in therapy forever.
Now for the more boring stuff that i have to include
I completed my undergraduate degree at Texas Tech University where I majored in Psychology with a minor in Philosophy. I then spent some time working in restaurants and in retail before returning to school to complete my Master’s degree.
I graduated from Amberton University with a Master’s in Professional Counseling. I then had the privilege of being a stay-at-home father to my eldest daughter for several months while my wife was still teaching. During this time, I also worked part-time teaching SAT prep. In the following summer, I began working at a local mental health hospital.
I completed the remainder of my internship at a local crisis center where I developed skills in crisis management and suicide risk evaluation. I am a certified crisis worker through the American Association of Suicidology.
I now have the honor and privilege of walking daily with couples on their journeys into loving attachment. My passion is to build healthy, happy families- one client (or couple) at a time.
I am a licensed professional counselor here in the state of Texas- #71799.
I am also a member of Postpartum Support International and an advocate for prenatal and postnatal mental health care. I also work to increase awareness and understanding about perinatal mood and anxiety disorders, specifically in regard to their effect on men.
I have completed training in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy which has been shown to be highly effective at helping couples reconnect and rekindle intimacy in their relationships.
As a bonus for coming this far, here are some personal tidbits about me...
I was born and raised here in Texas, originally from the Houston/Galveston area. I left there to follow my sweetheart (now wife of eleven years) out to Lubbock where I attended Texas Tech.
We moved to the Dallas area after we graduated to be closer to her family. We then welcomed our first wonderful daughter into the world… then a second… and most recently, a third.
No, we aren’t going to “try” for a boy. Yes, we may have another child, but I won’t be disappointed in the slightest if it’s another girl.
In my free time, I like to read or play video games. I’m a nerd and proud of it!
I love Mexican food and sushi (though maybe not at the same time). Sushito, anyone?
I enjoy spending time with my girls and constantly find myself in awe of how they are changing and growing.
