Marriage Counseling, OKC
1800 N Shartel Ave Oklahoma City, OK 73103
Marriage Solutions offers a unique research centered marriage counseling approach to help couples get better and STAY better long term.
When you're looking for couples therapy in Oklahoma City you want to look for help that is proven and reliable. You don't want to trust your relationship with just any therapist because you may only have one shot at getting your spouse to come.
You want to make sure that the therapist you trust knows what they are doing and knows how to help couples in your situation.
So many therapists generalize and do not specialize. Too many people think that anyone with a degree and license can help them when truthfully that is not the case. You need to take the time to do research and really ask the right questions before you set your first appointment.
Luckily, we have created a free online orientation to counseling to help couples like you to make the right decision for you. You can find it here. The online orientation is a 3 video series dedicated to helping you understand your unique situation and decide what to do next.
Our master therapist Randee Tomlinson, LMFT serves the Oklahoma City, Moore, Edmond, & Norman communities.
The Benefits of OKC Couples Therapy and Marriage Counseling
Who can benefit from OKC relationship counseling?
Based in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, marriage counseling with our licensed professionals could be described as couples therapy or relationship counseling. Marriage counseling is not only for married people. We help all kinds of couples recognize and resolve conflicts, and improve relationships.
You do not need to be married to want to understand your partner better. With Oklahoma City’s finest relationship counseling, you can improve communication and understanding between you and your significant other.
Marriage therapy normally involves couples coming together for joint discussions. At Marriage Solutions, however, you can go to marriage counseling by yourself. It can be more challenging to help a couple when only one person is willing to enter counseling, but the goal is the same. Whoever is in our program will have the opportunity to learn about themselves, their behavior, and improved communication techniques.
If your partner is threatening to leave you or has already left, you do not need to accept separation or divorce. We can help you heal your relationship, even if your partner is seeing someone else. It is possible to see things from other perspectives. We have the expertise and experience to help you rebuild communication and trust, even if you think that all might be lost.
Taking part in marriage counseling does not mean that your relationship is on the rocks. On the contrary, it means that those involved are taking the initiative to strengthen their bonds and understand each other better.
Why choose marriage counseling?
Our Oklahoma City marriage counselors can repair, rebuild, or strengthen relationships. We listen and we can help you to learn new ways of viewing your relationship. You will also develop vital skills that will ensure the longevity and quality of your relationship, including:
- open communication
- how to solve problems together
- how to discuss differences effectively
It will not take long before you can analyze the positives and negatives of your relationship. This balanced view is critical to understanding each other and working towards a healthier relationship.
Our OKC marriage counselors are trained and non-judgmental. They have seen couples who are angry and will not be shocked when people argue or yell. They will act as mediators in these situations, and they will help couples to become aware of their emotions and how to better handle them. Also, your therapist won’t let the session become a fight fest as that is not a productive use of your session.
Professional Help from Oklahoma City Marriage Counseling
Chatting with friends about relationship problems can be a big help. It can be a good way for people to let off steam. Friends and family can allow individuals to express your fears, frustration, or anger.
These people are likely to be biased, though, because of their existing relationships with you. And sometimes expressing emotions to a good listener is helpful, but not enough.
To find constructive, practical solutions for both partners, a non-judgmental, professional third party is in an ideal position to hear what is said without bias and to provide strategies and guidance.
At Marriage Solutions, we are licensed marriage counselors, licensed by the state (LMFT & LPC). We have helped thousands of couples work through issues that put stress on relationships.
Seeking help can be difficult. Once you start seeing your counselor, however, you will benefit from knowing that you are no longer alone. Wherever the counseling journey takes you, you will have the best possible guidance from people who have worked with couples in similar situations to yours.
Other Relationship Issues that Oklahoma City's Marriage Solutions Can Help With

How long does marriage counseling go on?
Marriage counseling is flexible. It may last a few sessions to help a couple through a crisis. It may last several months if the couple has deep issues to work through. The length of counseling varies, but most couples start seeing positive results within weeks, if not immediately. The benefits are long-lasting.
In fact, 75% fully recover and 85-90% make significant improvement within 15-20 hours. We also know that 90% maintain their improvement even 3 years after they finish with our methods.
