Couples Counselor

Donald Olund, MA, LCPC, NCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Darien

Some of my clients call it a gift. I know it is my passion. Couples counseling is a perfect fit for me. I get energized whenever a new couple comes to see me. As a communication, relational specialist, I get to know my couples individually and as a couple by taking time to carefully listen and understand them. This allows me the opportunity to help them understand each other and where they are likely stuck in their relationship. Once I identify the negative pattern, I assist the couple in shifting the pattern into one that is mutually respectful, caring, accommodating, and enriching. As a result of my extensive couples work I am currently writing a book on respectful relationships.

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

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

Samantha Elliott, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Darien

When working with couples, I work with each member to understand the perspective of their partner. I do not see one person as right and another as wrong, but instead understand that both people see the relationship and the world differently. In order for two people to be in complete harmony and intimacy, they need to be able to see and understand inner workings of the other. In couples counseling, I will facilitate conversations to help both partners get to this point of understanding and compassion.

Are you having difficulties communicating effectively with your partner? Is it causing problems within your relationship? Often times we repeat patterns we've learned throughout our lives on communicating with others, both negatively and positively. Through counseling we can explore those patterns and look into ways to break those patterns and establish a positive growth in the relationship.

Counseling with couples assumes that they both want to stay together, but have issues that need resolving. Finding techniques to communicate with each other, learning to avoid triggers, deciding when and how to have a talk, following guidelines and knowing when to end the discussion. There are also excellent books to aid both of you in your journey. Similar techniques are used for all committed couples.

Couples Counselor

Althea Olson, LCSW

Psychotherapist, Author, Keynote Speaker

Within driving distance of Darien

Most therapists are scared of providing couples counseling because it is difficult remaining unbiased towards two people who are in the throes of high conflict. However, I love it and it is my favorite type of counseling to provide. In my experience I have found most couples get caught up in the details of life and begin fighting to be right instead of fighting for each other. Instead of focusing on what they need to hear they become consumed over how their partner has wronged them. I focus on restoring reconciling the relationship to a place that is mutually beneficial for each partner using evidence based interventions from CBT, The Gottman Method, Bowen Family Systems, and ACT.

Couples experience and bring into their relationships past histories of emotional and cognitive issues that impact on their current relationship. When events occur that cause distress couple can experience intense and deep pain over the new developments or opening of old wounds. Treatment therefore needs to encompass their capacities to handle and overcome these experiences that interfere with their intimacy and closeness.

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?
