Couples Therapy is often seen as different from psychotherapy, because a relationship is the focus of attention instead of one individual diagnosed with a specific psychological problem. Couples Therapy focuses on the problems existing in the relationship between two people, but these relationship problems always involve individual symptoms and problems, as well as the relationship conflicts. For example, if you ar constantly arguing with your spouse, you will probably also be chronically anxious, angry, or depressed, (or all three). Or, if you have difficulty controlling your temper, you will have more arguments with your partner. All psychological problems, and all pschological changes, involve both individual symptoms (behavior, emotions, conflicts,...(view profile to read more)

Couples Counselor

Bekah Larson, LPC, MAC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Columbia

I had a fight with my housemate a few weeks ago. We are not a couple, but we have been living together for several years and our friendship is past the cushy rainbow stage. I said mean things loudly. She said mean things loudly. Then we separated and shut our doors. Five minutes later I went back to her room. (Paraphrased) "I didn't tell you how I felt because I thought you would leave our friendship!" I was screamsobbing. "Why would I leave our friendship, you're one of my best friends?!" She was screamsobbing. The point: Relationship, be it romantic or not, is about answering safety, trust, and "Can I rely on you?" "Are you there for me?" "Will you be there when I call for you?"

Couples Counselor

Lori Oge, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Being part of a relationship can be very satisfying in many ways. However, when that relationship begins to change and the partners no longer feel the same, problems appear to become greater than what they can handle. When working with couples, my theory approach is to use the Practice of Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. My main goal is to foster a safe therapeutic alliance to enhance engagement in the change process; to access, unfold, and expand emotional responses in an attachment context; and to choreograph response sequences to help restructure key interactions between the couple.

Couples Counselor

Jerry Waggoner, M. Div., M. Ed., LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Columbia

Emotionally focused therapy unlike many traditional therapies shows a very high rate of success. Couples learn that it is not who they who are that is the problem so much as rigid patterns of interaction into which they have fallen. Jerry is skilled at helping couples discover how to extricate themselves from these patterns and to replace them with new ways of interacting that produce the kind of safe and mutually satisfying bonds they have been desiring and seeking.
