Couples Counselor

Patricia (Patty) Swanson, M.A., LMFT, LMHC, NCC

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of University Place, WA

I do premarital and marital counseling for relationships preparing for marriage or dating couples wanting to work through an issue. I use Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy which is the most effective couple's therapy. Sometimes behavior couples therapy is used, and sometimes the two are combined. Infidelity is a commonly addressed issue, as well as emotional dis-connection and adult attachment concerns and mistrust. I also am a trained Prepare-Enrich facilitator - which provides an excellent and comprehensive assessment about your relationship.

Myla Haider, MA

Counselor

6922 22nd St W, University Place, WA

I often utilize Bowen Family Systems Therapy to help couples to understand how the patterns that their individual families have established in prior generations continue to effect their relationships today. I believe that relationships can serve the beneficial purpose of guiding every individual toward understanding and self-improvement and that relationships provide a valuable insight for both partners that can help them learn and grow together.

Couples Counselor

Robert Olsen, MS, LMHC, CTT

Licensed Counselor & Certified Life Coach

Within Driving Distance of University Place, WA

Rob and Dori are passionate about changing lives. The most popular counseling approach for couples who need a deeper, more therapeutic experience is meeting as a couple with couples. Clients get both Rob and Dori during sessions all for the price and time of the classic one-counselor method. About 40% of our clients choose the other approach called Relationship Life Coaching. Coaching focuses less on emotional trauma and deep issues, and more on communication, conflict resolution, and relationship skill building. Coaching is slightly less expensive than counseling.

Couples Counselor

Gary Mayne, MA, LMHCA

Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate

Within Driving Distance of University Place, WA

Money in the bank is always a good feeling. I work with couples to treat every interaction as an opportunity to put money in the bank to build trust through positive interactions. Working on communication is the avenue towards this idea, and create common relationship goals will provide the structure and common bond that provides structure while couples are not in therapy but still allow them to move forward.

Couples Counselor

Parke Burgess, MA

Psychotherapist

Within Driving Distance of University Place, WA

My primary focus is working with couples. If you feel like your relationship isn't as close as it used to be, or you would like it to be, or you find yourselves falling into the same old patterns of conflict or distance, or you are missing a real sense of connection with your partner--then I may be able to help. Using Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT), I help you explore the patterns in your relationship and get down to the core emotional drivers that keep you from being close. EFT has been shown to restore couples to a secure and lasting bond in more than 70% of cases.

Couples Counselor

Teresa Renner, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of University Place, WA

Having been married over 20 years myself (to a psychotherapist, none the less), I understand the difficulties of making marriage work, especially when children are involved. Utilizing approaches from Dr. John Gottman, Dr. Terrance Real, as well as Gay and Kathlyn Hendricks I am able to cut through a lot of the issues couples are facing to find the root of the problem, then offer perspective and skills that can change the dynamics involved. I teach communication skills, and the art of heart centered listening, as well as forgiveness and reframing. I specialize in working with couples who've experienced betrayal in their relationship. I believe relationships are meant to teach us, and heal us.

I am always pleased to help engaged or married couples as well as couples who are living together. I make a point to bring up important issues such as commitment and what that means to them. My counseling services are not limited to any one sexual orientation. Using emotionally focused couples therapy, I help couples solve practical problems while helping them listen to each other emotionally so that real and long last change is possible.

Couples Counselor

Jason Soto, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of University Place, WA

Relationships are a difficult endeavor, everyone wants the “perfect” one but how do we get there? Most often open and honest communication is mentioned. But what happens when communication is the problem? When you are afraid to express yourself given current or past experiences? Often difficulties in communication are indicators of deeper underlying issues. Identifying these issues and working through them can aid couples in coming closer to that “perfect” relationship. I work with couples who are looking for help for a variety of reasons. Whether it is anger, co-parenting, communication, emotional closeness, intimacy, or infidelity; I can help.

Couples Counselor

Missy Neill, M.Ed, LMHC

Licensed Counselor

Within Driving Distance of University Place, WA

Relationships are complicated, to say the least. Even healthy relationships experience moments of doubt and hardship. I’ve helped couples overcome a wide-range of issues including mistrust, infidelity, guilt, poor communication, intimacy issues, and life changes. Building a life with someone is difficult. Sometimes it helps to have a mediator who can offer unbiased support and guidance. We’ll talk about your concerns, needs, and future goals. If you’re thinking about counseling, then there’s still hope. You obviously care deeply about your partner. I can offer help undoing negative patterns and behaviors so the both of you can build a happy future together.
