Asking Dr. Bing Podcast

By Dr. Bing Wall, LMFT

Dr. Bing has been a marriage therapist in the Ames and Des Moines area for over 23 years. He began the Thriving Couples Blog to help couples to not just to survive their marriage but to thriving in their marriage. For over 10 years, Bing has written hundreds of articles about relationships, commitment, communcation, building trust, dating, sex, and what it takes to have a wonderful and fullfilling marriage.

Dr. Bing doesn’t hold back though. He is a big defender of taking responsibility for your own life and to not use the victim card as a way to justify treating your spouse unkindly. Having a thriving marriage is going to be hard work, but it is meaningful hard work and is worth it in the long run. So, take some time to read through the many articles throughout this site.
