Meet Kim Bowen of The Marriage Place in Richardson

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kim Bowen.

Thanks for sharing your story with us Kim. So, let’s start at the beginning and we can move on from there.
I opened up my practice in May of 2013 and it was just me. I was afraid I wouldn’t even be able to cover the rent. In less than 4 years, I had a 7 figure business and 15 employees. I got here by being passionate about marriage and dismayed at how easily even therapists give up on potentially good marriages. I once wanted out of my own marriage so I know that a marriage can be saved even if one wants out.

Has it been a smooth road?
HA! Smooth? Hardly! Two years ago, we were served a strong cease and desist. Our name was Power of Two Counseling and someone else had the name first. They were in Colorado but my business grew to an international presence quickly so this other company felt we infringed on their rights. So we changed our name to The Marriage Place.

We had to completely rebrand and deal with lost SEO. It was tough.

So, as you know, we’re impressed with The Marriage Place – tell our readers more, for example what you’re most proud of as a company and what sets you apart from others.
We are marriage counselors and coaches who work with people to save and improve their marriages. We get the toughest cases that other marriage counselors can’t handle or give up on.

I’m most proud of the TEAM I’ve assembled here. All of them care as much about marriages as I do. We meet weekly for 2 hours of training and case consultations. They do this because they want to be better at their craft and they want to help their clients.

THAT is exactly what sets us apart from others. We are PRO Marriage. Meaning we believe in the institute of marriage and feel that it is very underserved in the counseling world.

Most other counselors have very little training in comparison with us for working with couples. It truly is our specialty.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
I love the diversity of cultures and beliefs. I love the potential for growth. I love the small town feel but the big city amenities. I’ve lived in 8 states and Dallas has the friendliest people by far! They are genuine, down home folks here.

What I like the least…. traffic!
