Kim Bowen, LPC-S

THERAPIST, SPEAKER, AUTHOR
FOUNDER & CEO OF THE MARRIAGE PLACE

In 2013, Kim founded The Marriage Place in Richardson, TX after seeing a real need for therapists who truly understand the challenging dynamics of working with couples. Having at one point wanted out of her own marriage because of years of anger and resentment, she has a heart for those who feel stuck and hopelessly unhappy. She also knows first-hand how having a bad marriage counselor can hurt your chances of restoring your relationship to health.

Kim has spent years training with some of the top experts in the field and has shared that experience with her team of therapists. As a result, The Marriage Place has become known for its exceptional work with even the toughest of cases. We are proud of this reputation and the fact that other therapists often refer their most challenging couples to us when they are stuck and don’t know how to help them. The Marriage Place has grown to two physical locations – Richardson and our newest office in Frisco, TX – and also proudly serves clients coast to coast via our successful online coaching program.

Kim is a truth-teller, delivering even tough messages in a compassionate but direct way.

She and her husband, John, have been married for 30 years and are the parents of two grown boys and 2 high-maintenance fur babies.
