Couples Counselor

Retha Millikan, LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Counselor

Within driving distance of Lincoln

The counseling I do with couples is based on the Gottman model. Using John Gottman's book, "7 Principles for Making Marriage Work", I help couples develop their "Sound Relationship House", with a strong foundation of fondness and admiration. We spend time on communication and conflict management. Counseling is sometimes enhanced by couples attending my workshop or support group. These are strictly educational and open to any committed couples including pre-marital , engaged, and married couples.

When your relationship isn't happy, it affects every area of your life. (Research implicates even issues of one's health, career advancement, and annual income!) Therapy can be a way to build lifelong relationship skills and a fresh perspective that transfer into all settings (work, parenting, friendships and family life). It's well worth the investment!

Couples Counselor

Deborah Cohen, MFT, MPH,CHT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Lincoln

I use a combination of tried and true couples communication techniques to help couples create and build effective communication into their relationship. I also spend time on exploring sexual compatability and communication, when the couple wants their sexual lintimacy enhanced. IF there is lack of desire or an imbalance of desires, we address the roots of this.With couples who come for pre-marital counseling, we focus on communication skills and on common needs and wants the couple have for their impending marriage and family unit. We also look at any red flags that are showing up in the relationship.

Michael Thaden, MS, LMFT, ATR-BC, CHT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Lincoln

The “mechanics” of healthy healing relationships is often easier said than done. We all need a valuing mirror to validate our core experience, and this is where the healing work of therapy comes in. I emphasize a valuing approach to each person’s experience as a foundation for assisting couples in strengthening the “mechanics” of what we know facilitates healthy satisfying relationships. I am repeatedly impressed to the power of Compassion for supercharging the many brilliant tools made available to us by the likes of Harville Hendrix, John Gottman to get relationships back on track to promote the healing and growth are meant to fulfill in our personal and interpersonal relationships.

Talal H. Alsaleem, LMFT dba Happily Ever

Within driving distance of Lincoln

Whether or not your married, whether or not you are thinking about marriage, if you are in a relationship with another person, you are bound to occasionally have some communication issues or misunderstandings. However, when these communication issues or misunderstandings prevent us from having a happy and healthy relationship, we need to seek help before deciding to separate or divorce. My couples counseling can help you identify the causes of relationship dissatisfaction and find ways to help you communicate and listen better.

Couples Counselor

Joe Borders, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Lincoln

When working with couples, I take a very attachment based approach. We all seek to feel loved, supported, and secure in our relationships. Couples develop problems when something happens to damage this or threatens to damage this. Often times couples get into negative cycles or have been hurt by each other in the past and so come to expect to be hurt by one another. When working with couples it is my job to help each individual express their underlying emotions, fears, and insecurities, while also helping to grow empathy for one another. This ultimately helps couples to understand how their negative interactions are mostly the result of fear of getting hurt or abandoned.

Couples Counselor

Joan Druckman, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Lincoln

Couples therapy is my area of specialization and I love this part of my work. Many couples I see are in significant distress in their relationship and we work toward understanding what is causing and maintaining the distress. We will identify and explore the relationship patterns that lead to disconnection as the first step toward positive change and then work toward the development of greater intimacy, trust, safety and emotional connection. I have helped many couples who are on the brink of separation and divorce, as well as couples who are recovering from affairs, betrayals, and addiction.

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Lincoln

There are countless models of healthy romantic relationships, from monogamous to polyamorous, and unique variations between partners. The scripts for dating and longterm relationships of our parents’ generations may not be applicable to your relationship, and there is no formal education in how to be a good partner or how to identify unhealthy relationships. But there is psychological research that shows that effective communication, emotional openness, intimacy, and other factors contribute to healthy relationships. Creating these conditions are skills that can be learned. I practice brief humanistic and emotion-focused therapy (EFT) to help my LGBTQ and hetero clients learn these skills.

Couples Counselor

Daryl Temkin, Ph.D

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Lincoln

Couples may they be in a dating relationship, living together, engaged to marry, married, in business together, separating, divorcing, fighting over children, property, alimony or visitation, are often confronted with a breakdown in communication and an inability to resolve conflicts. Couple counseling aims to reveal the disconnect within a couple that often once had the ability to connect and function in harmony. Couples can quickly get off track with one another and need skilled guidance to help them learn to resolve conflicts, once again listen and communicate effectively as well as to be able to disagree without forcing the relationship to end.

Couples counseling can help when your are having difficulties in your relationship. Whether you are in a relationship, looking for pre-marital counseling, living together, or married, therapy can help you with your connection, communication, your ability to reduce conflicts, reduce resentments, and restore passion and intimacy. It can help your relationship if even just one of you come without your partner. When one person makes shifts in the relationship it can make positive changes as well. Many couples wait longer than necessary hoping the problems will just go away. Don't wait until it's too late. Get help and change the course of your relationship.

Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings?

Couples Counselor

Diana Conwell, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Career Counselor, Life Coach

Within driving distance of Lincoln

Often, it's not that couples don't love each other. It's that they can't FIND each other. Emotions and life get in the way. If you are struggling with relationship concerns similar to these I can help: • You want to make it work, but don't know how. • Can't talk to each other; argue and insult each other. • Struggle with physical and emotional intimacy. • Feel alone or disconnected in your relationship. • Struggle with the decision of whether to stay or leave. • Are unsure if you can trust your partner/infidelity. • Want greater connection and direction as a couple. I work with married, dating, and premarital couples. Please allow me to help you find each other again.

Couples Counselor

Gerald Frye, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Lincoln

Marriage and long-term relationships are exacting. They require hard work and great effort to do well. They start out with such promise. Exciting anticipation of being together is replaced with the need to be together to know where the other person is and what they are doing. The little things which were overlooked become occasions to vent the uncertainty and insecurity building between them. Fun and inspiring anticipation are replaced by angry fights and passionate making up. Misery functions as a drug tying them together. If this describes your relationship or your marriage, get help now to bring back the passion and joy which brought you together.
