Why are relationships so difficult? Couples therapy can help both of you build the relationship you yearn for. You will learn new skills for communicating as well as tools to support your nervous systems to deactivate from fight, flight or freeze responses. Learn to tend to yourself during conflict, speak your truth and at the same time deeply listen to your partner. Learn to both say and hear the "yes" and "no" of healthy relationships. The secure bond that you build can help each of you heal from past hurts and change old relationship patterns that no longer work. Therapy helps you take responsibility for ensuring the relationship serves you well and support your partner to do the same.

Although I primarily provide individual therapy, there are times in the therapeutic process when its necessary to have your partner or spouse join too. It can be very beneficial for them to fully understand how you feel, what you are going through and how they can best support you in the process.

Licensed Professional Counselor

2995 Baseline Road, Suite 100, Boulder, Colorado 80303 | 303-241-3571

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.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Middlefork Road, Boulder, Colorado 80302 | 303.320.3956

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

Clinical Psychologist

636 Coffman Street, Suite 205, Longmont, Colorado 80501 | (720) 600-6212

Couples typically come to therapy with the hopes of finding a mediator for their struggles. Both sides want to be heard, understood, and respected. It is critical that therapy begin with an understanding that all good relationships take work, and that work usually involves a certain amount of sacrifice. The top goals for couples is usually the ability to listen, the ability to be flexible on priorities, and the acceptance of measurable goals that both will be accountable for. These goals can be about sex, money, communication, home routines, or even relatives. The key is how we come up with the goals, and support each other in achieving them.

Randy Compton, MA
Couples Counselor

Randy Compton, MA

Registered Somatic Psychotherapist

1503 Yarmouth Ave, Boulder, Colorado 80304 | 303-859-4419

I bring 25 years of experience as a mediator, conflict manager, and restorative justice trainer and believe in helping couples learn how to communicate effectively. This means taking responsibility for one's feelings and actions, being open to being wrong, being willing to say what you feel and need, and taking turns with one another as you explore deep territory. We will practice in the office and then take this home to try out, reporting back in the next session. I will have you read Sue Johnson's book "Hold Me Tight" which is based on Emotionally Focused Therapy. Couples work out some of the deepest wounds together and I see couple's therapy as a way to grow and deepen like no other.

Psychotherapist, Addictions Counselor, & Parent Coach

1530 55th Street, Boulder, Colorado 80303 | 303-875-7294

Many times couples' problems are driven by their differing parenting styles and conflicts over how to raise their children. As a parent educator and parent coach, I can teach you a theoretical framework to help you get on the same page and learn how to work together to complement each other and take control of your home in a healthy way by giving up the control you don't need with your kids and having the control you do need.

Heather Pylant, MA, MFT
Couples Counselor

Heather Pylant, MA, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

1620 Lee Hill Road, Suite 7, Boulder, Colorado 80304 | (303) 803-6728

Couples work is its own discreet field of counseling because of the unique, complex dynamics that only occur in a bond between two people. When we find a significant partner we care about, we want to nurture and grow our rapport, but may end up sabotaging it through misunderstandings & projections instead. In our work together, we will uncover the negative patterns that keep you & your loved one stuck in unproductive cycles. Once these beliefs and behaviors are uncovered, deep shifts in trust can happen. I use effective attachment-based models and self-regulation methods to facilitate compassionate change & connection between couples. I serve both heterosexual & same-sex relationships.

Couples find one another because within that pair, is the possibility of triggering at a core level, and also healing core wounds once that conversation is happening.

Couples Counselor

Stewart Brown, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

1650 38th St.--Suite 206E, Boulder, Colorado 80301 | 303-449-2996

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.
