So you clicked my ad… which lets me know that you’re looking for serious help with your relationship. Well, let me tell you that I believe you’re in the right place.
What if you could improve your relationship- increase your happiness and satisfaction, improve your sex life, bring back that spark (or create one for the first time), feel heard and understood by your partner on a deep, soulful level?
I’m glad you asked.
Exclusively for couples who want MORE
More from their marriage.
What if you had the ability to level up your relationship- to take it from bad to good or good to great?
But first, I have some questions for you:
What would it be like to feel understood by your partner? To have a safe space to share your darkest fears as well as your deepest desires? To know that your partner will truly listen?
What would it be like to put a stop to the endless arguments? To be able to achieve a resolution to the issues that have driven you apart?
What would it be like to make an investment in your relationship? One that will pay out dividends, not only for years to come for you and your spouse, but also have a positive impact on your children’s future relationships as well?
Not many talk about it, but being married in 2019 can be hard.
Whether you’re newlyweds or have been married for 25 years, it can be hard (like really, really hard).
That’s because the landscape of relationships is changing.
We are no longer satisfied with the status quo.
Not only do we want companionate love (a love of equals), we want romantic love.
What was once relegated to the affair relationship, we long to bring into the marriage bed.
We don’t want the love, the marriage that our parents had… we want more… so much more.
You’ve read countless articles, books, magazines… looking for the answers.
And some of it might help for a while, but it’s so easy to slip into old patterns.
Even if, on the outside, it looks like everything’s going well…
There are times when:
- You feel stuck.
- You and your spouse feel more like roommates.
- You wonder if something’s missing.
And you’re not getting the love that you want from the person that you love.
Here’s what I want you to know:
A playful, passionate partnership is possible.
You can have your cake and eat it too, as they say.
It is completely possible for you to:
- Have a love life worth bragging about.
- Take steps to make changes that last.
- Find renewed vigor in your relationship.
- Feel alive and in love in your marriage again.

Who am I?
Hey there- I’m Mark Cagle.
From a young age I have been fascinated by people’s behavior and relationships. I was always the one who my friends turned to when they needed advice or to vent- which was pretty unusual given that I’m a guy…
Nevertheless, my passion for helping people developed at an early age. I was never the social butterfly, more the reserved, quiet type. I had a handful of close friends, and that pattern continues even now.
When I entered college, I began to formally study psychology at Texas Tech University. I then spent a few years working here and there- retail, fast food, boarding homes- even got married before I returned to complete my Masters in Professional Counseling at Amberton University.
Fast forward a few years, and I have four beautiful daughters and a loving wife of 12 years. I’m also living out my dream of helping people every day.
Honestly, I never thought that I would work with couples in my private practice, but I’m so glad I gave it a shot because I absolutely love it.
It is amazing and humbling to watch the hard work that my couples do in my office. It truly is a privilege.
And it would be a privilege to help you take your relationship to the next level as well.
Relationships are hard, and it takes intentional practice to keep them working as they should.
How do I know this? Because I’ve seen it in my own marriage.
It’s so easy to get caught up in old, unhelpful patterns.
It takes practice and mindfulness to achieve the type of relationship that we truly desire.
And it all starts with identifying what’s going wrong.
Then we can make corrections and learn something new.
My marriage changed after I stopped trying so hard to fix it.
It changed when I learned to lean into, rather than away from, the difficult truths that my wife was trying to tell me.
I can teach you how to do the same. I can show you how to obtain the relationship of your dreams.
All it takes is a free phone call to see if we’re a good fit. You have nothing to lose.
It all starts with a 2-hour intake.
This allows us to dive right in; I can start gathering information about what’s going wrong in your relationship.
Not only that, but it offers us a chance to explore and define your goals for therapy.
Every relationship is different, and I won’t know what it is you want until you tell me.
Then we can outline a path for how to get you from where you are to where you want to be.
This 2-hour intake is $375.
After that, we will meet weekly for 90 minutes until you start to reach your goals. For some couples, biweekly sessions work really well- allowing you more time to process and practice between sessions.
I don’t want you to be in therapy forever, and having these extended sessions is just one of the ways that I achieve this.
These 90 minute sessions are $270.
But Mark, why do you charge so much?
You’re definitely higher than other therapists we’ve seen.
You know what? You’re right.
I do charge more than many therapists in Dallas. So what is it that you’re paying for?
Well, I can tell you that you’re not paying me to sit there and nod my head.
You’re not paying me to say, “Poor baby…” and not offer you ways to transform your marriage.
What you are paying for is for me to be the best darn couples counselor that I can be.
Let’s face it: You’re not just paying for my time in the chair; you’re paying for my time outside as well.
Let me explain:
Many therapists charge a nominal fee for their services. (There are a wide range of reasons for this.) They then proceed to cram their schedule full of clients in order to make ends meet.
So you’re paying me NOT to work with 30-40 clients in a week.
I only work with a small group of clients at a time, so I can bring my best self into every single session.
You’re paying for my undivided attention while we’re in session because I’m not worried about how I’m going to pay my mortgage (or for the four weddings of my daughters some day…)
You’re also paying to allow me to take time outside of session to become a better therapist.
By paying me a little more than other therapists, you allow me to attend trainings, read books, and hone my skills as a couples therapist.
When you work with me, you’ll be on a journey to becoming a better partner; I’ll be on a journey to become a better guide for you.
And as my skills improve, my fee will go up. Even now, you’re getting a really good deal.
QUESTION: What is your relationship worth?
Of course the answer is: priceless.
(But what I can tell you is that a divorce will cost about $15000 per person.)
But what’s the cost of living in an unhappy marriage?
Again, it’s immeasurable.
In business, we talk about opportunity cost- the cost of NOT doing something.
So ask yourself: What might I miss out on by not making this investment?
I know you have a lot of fear and anxiety. I get it.
That’s what the 30 minute call is all about.
Ask questions. Get to know me and my style THEN decide if we’re a good fit.
Let’s be honest: I’ll be evaluating fit as well.
I don’t work with everyone that calls, and I don’t work with everyone who wants to work with me.
If I don’t think I can help you, I’ll let you know.
Remember: I’m not desperate. I’ll only agree to work with you if we both see the value in it.
