Sean Jackson, MA, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

1817 Queen Anne Ave N, #409, Seattle, WA 98109

When I work with couples, I am very intentional about first listening to both individuals and then seeking to slow down the process of how you communicate with one another. By doing this, we are practicing and preparing you both for those real, in-the-moment conversations that seem to keep you stuck in the same place. By growing in your ability to listen to each other, you will begin to understand what it is that your significant other needs and you will begin to feel more heard and understood. When you do this, more often than not, you are able to break those old habits of communicating and relating to each other. Call me to find out more about this process.

Couples Counselor

Wendy Smith, MA, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

18 W. Mercer St., Ste. 360, Seattle, WA 98119

When working with couples, I use “Emotionally Focused Therapy” to help partners deeply reconnect on the level of needs and feelings (as opposed to having that same unproductive argument over and over again). I also use very practical research-derived techniques to help partners develop strategies for successful communication and for joint living and dreaming, while, at the same time, maintaining their identities as whole and separate human beings.

Couples Counselor

Dwayne Stone, MS, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

2319 N 45th St. Suite 110, Seattle, WA 98103

Experience shows that most of the conflict and problems we experience in relationships are often rooted in the things we bring to it. Our past experiences in and out of relationships, our family of origin and our own self-esteem and sense of ourselves all combine to shape and define the relationships we get in, stay in and get out of. We are constantly pulled between the need for intimacy and the fear of rejection, the need for success and the fear of failure. Defining these issues along with rules for our behavior and the behaviors of other in the different kinds relationships will help you make sure you are picking the right person for the right relationship.

Couples Counselor

Emily Wood, MA, LMHC, NCC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

2722 Eastlake Avenue East, Suite #300, Seattle, WA 98102

I approach my work with couples through an attachment lens. This means that I treat the relationship as my client while looking at how individual's personal history of attachment plays out in relationship. Couples often seek counseling after trying everything they can to stay together, but feel stuck and weary. You may be wondering: How do I navigate the same fights over and over again? Is it possible to heal after infidelity or a breach of trust? Couples counseling provides hope and new skills to work through conflict toward lasting change. I especially enjoy working with couples whose relationship is affected by one or both of the partners' past trauma.

Couples Counselor

Alison Withey, MA, LMHC

Individual, Relationship and Group Counselor

3130 E. Madison St. Suite 203B, Seattle, WA 98112

All relationships go through periods of ups and downs, but sometimes couples find themselves unable to get out of a down-time and back to feeling connected and happy. I work with couples facing issues such as conflict, communication and intimacy. I approach couples counseling in three phases, first exploring, identifying and assessing for patterns and areas of disconnection in your relationship. Second we begin to repair and build new pathways for communication, connection and closeness. During the third phase we will look to create and generate for your future, identifying values, goals and dreams, building a foundation to support growth and change over the life of your relationship.

Couples Counselor

Brooke Stepp, MS, CN, LMHCA

Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate

Within Driving Distance of Seattle, WA

Being in relationship with others is one of core parts of what it means to be a human being. Saying that relationships are complex is an understatement. They can be fulfilling places where we learn more about ourselves, the world around us, and have our needs for connection and intimacy met. They can also be places where our core attachment wounds get ignited and we often feel powerless and unskilled. In our body-based relationship work, we will explore this complexity in depth. You will come to understand how the patterns you have as individuals and together impact your ability to have the relationship you want and you will learn real skills to get there.

Couples Counselor

Francesca Licciardi, MA, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

401 9th ave N, Seattle, WA 98109

My work with couples helps to increase emotional awareness and communication pathways for the transparency of the relationship. Developmental dynamics and systemic influences are explored as they prove to affect the relational style of the participants of the couple. Discovering a middle ground between individual and relational responsibilities is a check point throughout the work we do. Creating a safe and exploratory space for the purpose of openness and the strengthening of vulnerability is of central importance. It is about developing as a team and finding the rhythm within the dynamic to promote optimal success.
