Lynne Goertzen, MA, CSAT, CMAT, RRT

Registered Psychologist

2003 - 14 Street N.W., Suite 105, Calgary, Alberta T2M 3N4 | 403-630-7595

I work with couples (married, common-law, or dating, heterosexual or same-sex) to enhance relationships and build connection. I have training in, and utilize, a wide range of interventions and strategies from emotion-focused therapy, Gottman's couples therapy, CBT, among others. I can help you improve the quality of your relationship, consider alternative perspectives, communicate your requests and your caring to your partner, learn and practice effective problem-solving, and co-construct your future. In our work together, I will also ask you to practice skills at home and perhaps do some reading as the work and benefits of counselling occur largely between, rather than inside, sessions.

Throughout the course of any relationship there will be ups and downs. Some of these can be caused by your relationship, and others can be external and have a direct effect on your relationship. Couples counselling is not an admission of weakness or failure. In reality, couples counselling shows the courage and determination of the couple to work towards making the relationship more exceptional and even stronger than before. Couples counselling is not just for every couple experiencing a rough patch, it is simply put for Every Couple!

Brenda Duncan, MSW RSW

Clinical Social Worker

132 - 17th Avenue NW, Calgary, Alberta T2M 0M6 | 403-874-7690

Working with relationships, I respect each person's perspective and encourage both of you in the process of discovering how you can be more effective as partners in building a better life together. However painful your conflict or disconnection may be right now, there is room to develop interest and skills to enhance the relationship and work together to deal with challenges you face. How we work together depends on your goals and unique circumstances. We will develop a process of counselling which recognizes and values each of you and supports the building of a central, meaningful partnership.

In a relationship, each member is responsible for an equal share of the dynamic. In a family, that means it splits between the amount of people, and in a couple it’s 50% created by each partner. This 50% is the result of the individual’s needs- both functional and dysfunctional. Functional needs relate to biological drives, culture, relationship goals, values, etc. Dysfunctional needs come from limiting beliefs, which are internalized in our childhood. They create needs like: the need to be in control, or the need to protect oneself. The needs, whether functional or dysfunctional, can balance each other out, creating a “stabilizer” or they can become unmet needs.

Registered Psychologist

# 205, 259 Midpark Way SE, Calgary, Alberta T2X 1M2 | 403-457-5993

Relationships can be measured on two levels: stability and satisfaction. Sometimes the first goal is to stabilize the relationship (like after an affair). But most of us want more than just stability: we actually want to get along with and enjoy our partner. Fortunately, there has been a lot of relationship research that points the way to the knowledge and skills that are needed in order to achieve this. I love working with couples, and seeing their dynamics improve. I know that things can get pretty bad at times, and you can feel like your relationship is spinning out of control in a negative way. It may take some time, but improvements are genuinely possible. I've worked with very young ....

Lucy Pascal, MSW, RSW

Registered Clinical Social Worker

#205 259 Midpark Way SE, Calgary, Alberta T2X 1M2 | 403-467-7252

Couples counseling can help provide you and your partner with skills to communicate effectively, manage conflict, and create a close, loving relationship that lasts a lifetime. My counseling approach draws from two highly regarded, research-based approaches in the world; Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) based on a theory of adult love and attachment, that help couples renew or create a close emotional bond and John Gottman’s theory of what leads to a satisfying healthy relationship.

Amy Marshall, MN MC

Provisional Psychologist

1404 10th Street NW, Calgary, Alberta T2M 4M8 | 403 619 8558

As a therapist with a special interest in couples counselling, I work with couples to identify unique relationship strengths as well as relationship challenges. After gaining a thorough understanding of the relationship history, I aim to efficiently and effectively support couples to heal from relationship hurts, disappointments, conflicts, and loss of trust. As relational healing unfolds, couples are able to create the kind of loving and secure relationship that they desire.

Registered Psychologist

Authentic Psychology - 1407 10 Street SW, Calgary, Alberta T2R 0S6 | 4036907482

Most relationships and marriages begin wonderfully! Unfortunately, many gradually decline. It does not have to be this way--there are methods and tools which can be learned and used which can help couples develop stronger friendships, resolve conflicts through understanding each partners dreams beneath the conflict, and eventually, develop meaningful and mutually authentic shared meaning. I use the Gottman Method for couples therapy which is evidence-based.

Every relationship has its challenges. Have the fights increased, are they about little things? Are you growing apart, can you feel the tension more often than not?

Calgary couples, marriage and relationship counselling can help! Discover ways to honor your partner's differences, learn to re-build the friendship part of the relationship, grow in intimacy and develop stronger communication skills. Learn to fight fair and resolve (resolveable) issues so they don't keep coming back.

I help couples by focusing on two goals: (1) Communicating constructively about issues; (2) Having a strong relationship friendship.

The challenges couples face, including difficulty communicating, conflict, trust issues, blended families and work rotations can precipitate significant relationship distress. Support in addressing these issues can have a signifiacant positive impact on overall relationship functioning. The fact that relationships are one of our primary coping mechanisms multiplies the potential distress when these are present as it impacts the very mechanisms we use to cope.

115-1st Street S.W., Calgary, Alberta T2P 0B3 | 403-266-2017 or 403-869-5080

I love to work with couples! This is my specialty and expertise. I have a proven track record with couples who have been impacted by affairs, indifference, financial struggles and parenting challenges. I have worked with high conflict couples for over 25 years and know the pathway forward. Most couples who call me say they want to be happy, desired and seen by their partner, relaxed with their partner and connected. I have a large tool box of strategies to help you achieve those goals. We look at conflict styles, the best practices of healthy relationships, emotional self regulation and many more areas that typically plaque couples. Strong relationships are good for parents and kids. i
