Couples Counselor

Barry McVay, M.A. - LPC - State of Oregon

Licensed Professional Counselor

Willamette Counseling Services - 0112 S.W. Hamilton Street, Portland, OR 97239

My approach with couples is to address the barriers and resentments in the relationship, examine the uniqueness and varying perspectives of each individual, identify the conscious and subconscious forces present within their differences, and develop new ways of relating that are consistent with the goals you would like to achieve. My approach is integrative, working multi-dimensionally from acute, intrapersonal, interpersonal, and systemic perspectives - building a deeper sense of communication, trust and emotional/physical intimacy.

There is nothing more satisfying than a healthy relationship. If an important relationship is in trouble, or if you believe it could be better than it is, then you can benefit from counseling: for you and a significant other, an adult family member (parent, sibling, cousin, etc.), a friend, co-worker, or roommate. You can improve communication, address and resolve conflicts, explore different ways of being together, expand the parameters of the relationship, find deeper levels of intimacy, and gain understanding of how and why problems developed in order to prevent and resolve them more easily in the future. Contact me for more information on how I can help you with your relationship.

Individuals who are experiencing difficulties in their relationship are often reacting to their spouse through the lens of a recent or distant breach of trust or attachment to a significant other. This way of looking at and treating relationship pain is termed Emotionally-Focused Couple's Therapy. Couples who are willing to come to the therapy room and identify the harmful patterns of interaction in their relationship and co-create with their spouses new, trusting, and loving patterns will often benefit from the work they put in in order to support a relationship that is very important to them.

I use an excellent tool called, "Prepare Enrich" to assess and strengthen relationship issues for married, engaged, or unmarried couples. Each partner will take a relationship assessment online and then I will go over the information with you together. Items assessed are: relationship styles, dynamics, sexuality, finances, stress profile and more. You can learn more about Prepare Enrich here: https://www.prepare-enrich.com

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Portland, OR

The bond formed between two people is as unique as the individuals. The bond is special and cherished. However, whenever two lives are joined together communication breakdowns, hurt feelings, and conflict are likely to follow. The relationship that is most important to you is threatened. The person whom you have laughed and grown with has changed in your eyes. You are confused; you want your relationship back; you want your partner back. Couples Counseling is an effective way to learn new ways of communicating with your partner and redefine the intimate bond with each other.

Deborah Orandon, MS, LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

7409 SW Capitol Hwy #207, Portland, OR 97219

I work with couples where either one or both partners are Highly Sensitive People (HSP). Relationship issues can be compounded when high sensitivity is a factor and the couple misunderstands the cause. In working with me both individuals will complete a "sensitivity profile" to understand where each of their needs and gifts can support each other and where conflicts may be anticipated. Often the couple simply needs help in developing creative living strategies to honor the needs of each member, but in other cases more depth work around the communication process is necessary and we work to deepen intimacy by developing empathic listening, sharing, disclosing and clear request skills.

Katje Wagner, PhD, LPC

Holistic Psychotherapist, Licensed Professional Counselor

1942 NW Kearney St, Suite 23, Portland, OR 97209

Throughout our lives we absorb the myth that once you find “The One,” everything falls into place and you live happily ever after. Though ridiculously simplistic, it is amazing how some version of this myth sinks deep into our bones. When discord or conflict arise, we think that something must be fundamentally wrong and doubt that this is “The One” after all. My goal as a couples therapist is to debunk that myth. Conflict, struggles, even crisis definitely do not feel good, but they are a natural part of healthy relationships. Commit to each other anew – discover how to use these struggles as a doorway to the profound growth and intimacy that is truly possible in your relationship.

Sarah Gregory, MA, LMHCA

MA Professional Counselor

12 SE 14th Ave, Suite 203, Portland, OR 97227

I am passionate about working with couples during any of the many growing stages you might find yourself in. Whether we meet in a more preventative capacity or in the painful aftermath of an affair, I fully believe that marriages can recover and thrive with the help of counseling. One if the biggest tools we will focus on is communication, addressing each person's need to be heard and understood, and heightening our ability to actively listen and care. If you are on the fence about pursuing help in your relationship I urge you to try, allow space for healing and growth, and allow hope for your future.

Ross Cohen, MA, LPC, LLC

Licensed Professional Counselor

325 NW 21st Ave., Suite 204, Portland, OR 97209

Are you experiencing relationship problems but your partner is uninterested in couple’s counseling? Individual relationship counseling is highly effective for healing personal relationship challenges (e.g. commitment and abandonment fears, past betrayal, unfulfilling relationships, loneliness, emotional reactivity, trouble expressing feelings) and for developing healthy relationship skills (communication, boundaries, comfort with vulnerability, handling resentments, increasing empathy). Imagine how well your relationship could function or how much more successful you could be in your next relationship if you worked through the individual relationship issues that are causing your problems.
