About Us


The Marriage & Family Institute of San Antonio, Inc., founded by Maria T. Flores, Ph.D. is a private, non-profit, organization whose primary purpose is to promote health by alleviating marriage, family and individual distress and dysfunction. The Institute focuses on healing and growth in family relationships. Systemic thinking and practice serves to view clients in a personal and social context. It is through dialogue and a collaborative interchange among couples and family members that understanding is discovered.

A highly qualified staff of marriage and family therapists and psychotherapists serve as the Institute’s primary treatment providers. This interdisciplinary approach is designed to maximize clinical input and carefully match the unique needs of each client with the background and experience of each therapist.

Mission Statement

Our primary goal is to facilitate couples, family and individual  with their relational goals.  In so doing we will help our clients to open the door to optimal mental and emotional health so that they may be able to embrace the life they desire.
