Jennifer Maddox, LCSW, MASM

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 80206 - Nearby to Applewood.

Couples often come to my office with one person leaning in and wanting to save the relationship and the other leaning out wanting to leave the relationship. I work with these couples first individually and then together to develop a new way of relating to each other that incorporates each person learning how to stand with integrity in their own needs, thoughts and emotions. Often people in relationship lose who they are and start to lose trust or faith in themselves, as well as, the relationship. The couples I work with learn to first trust themselves, and there by, learn to trust each other in new and meaningful ways.

Couples therapy is a dynamic and educational process. Through couples therapy many issues and struggles can be named, dealt with, and overcome. Relationship can begin to flourish again and a foundation of true love and mutual respect can be repaired. Relationships are a beautiful experience that requires the upmost integrity, care, and humility on both people involved. In therapy the relationship is viewed objectively - it is the thing that is worked on. Thus, though individual therapy occurs sporadicly it is not the focus of the therapeutic process. Through time, patience, and effort couples can accomplish their goals and learn much to advance their relationship

Stewart Brown, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

In 80301 - Nearby to Applewood.

Most couples come to therapy hoping that the therapist will fix their partner. Blame is almost universally the dynamic. If you come in asking how you might improve your marriage, you will be light years ahead of the game and will save yourself time and money. A lot of my training has to do with helping you eventually see that you actually can be more effective and that intimacy is possible. I use a combination of exercises and a process that increases understanding to help you get there. Once there is understanding, compassion seems to naturally follow.

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?

Claudia Trevithick, ATR-BC, Registered Psychotherapist

Board-Certified Art Therapist, Registered Psychotherapist

In 80014 - Nearby to Applewood.

I enjoy seeing the light come back in the couple's eyes, as their understanding of themselves and each other increases. It can be too easy to fall into a rut, and forget that you are both on the same side. I use an "Imago" approach, exploring the origin of each person's self-image and relational needs. We do this through written and verbal interactions, drawing, and specific communication skills and role playing. I invite each person to share what they are willing to change ahout themselves for the sake of the relationship. It is also important to explore needs, wants, and how love is received and expressed. I look forward to working with you.

Howard Lambert, Ph.D.
Couples Counselor

Howard Lambert, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 80246 - Nearby to Applewood.

I teach couples "Full Respect Living." This is Terry Real's term for mastering the skills of relational living. Some of the skills I will teach you are: 1) sustaining healthy self-esteem, 2) maintaining healthy boundaries, 3) living in moderation, 4) acting on behalf of the relationship, and 5) negotiating wisely. It is often the case that practicing these skills can help you turn around a deteriorating couple relationship very quickly. However, when repetitive harmful patterns are operating in the relationship, we will need to look more deeply. I will help you to understand and change the self-defeating patterns that you have brought from your childhood into the current situation

Couples Counselor

Rich Audsley, PhD, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 80439 - Nearby to Applewood.

Almost every couple can benefit from some help at times with their relationship. Sometimes these troubles reach the point that partners become disappointed and upset about their relationship and may even come to question whether they want to continue to remain a couple. Marriages in distress are very unsettling and the ways relational problems often progress make it easy for things to go from bad to worse. However, in most situations, this flow in a negative direction can be altered. In my practice I use a combination skill building in communication, negotiating, and problem solving, and teach how to fight well by avoiding the pitfalls that will escalate disagreements into catastrophes.

You can also learn what patterns get you stuck and change how you relate. Couples therapy can help you start to feel valued and understood in your relationship, so that you feel closer and more intimately connected.

Couples Counselor

Allison Villarreal, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 80303 - Nearby to Applewood.

Are you tired of the same patterns over and over again? Are you fighting to "win" rather than to resolve conflict and grow as a couple? Are you putting your job, your kids, your friends or families of origin above your partner? I am far less interested in the details of each fight than with the context with which your maneuver through your relationship. How do you communicate? Are you kind? I can help you to become securely functioning, committed and attached individuals who are greater as a couple than you are individually. I want each partner to feel that they have each other's best interest in mind and that their partner is a safe and loving support system.

Laura Stuart, MA, LPC
Couples Counselor

Laura Stuart, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 80203 - Nearby to Applewood.

When working with couples, I use talk therapy, a family systems approach, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT). Working with couples is unique and can be complex. It is important to examine each person as an individual, help them become their best self and then work on ways to help them grow together as a unit. It is to be noted that it is difficult to achieve progress with couples therapy if both parties are not fully committed to the therapy process.

Angela Dotzenrod, MA, LPC
Couples Counselor

Angela Dotzenrod, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 80002 - Nearby to Applewood.

I work with couples to increase responsiveness, trust, and intimacy in relationships. I help partners see how each of their behaviors impact and influence their partner's reactions and how the combination of these reactions lead to self-perpetuating cycles that continue to hurt the relationship. Together we work on skills to decrease blame and defensiveness, increase understanding and responsiveness, and create healing. Premarital counseling also available, and includes important research-based information and insight regarding how reasons for marrying may have implications for the success of the union.
