Licensed Psychologist, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 55408 - Nearby to Columbus.

Couple counseling is helping a couple to develop a number of key skills. These include communicating clearly, listening, emotional expression, negotiating, being respectful, managing conflict, problem solving and finding ways to negotiate how they connect and also how they create separation in healthy ways. Couples can get suck when these skills are not well developed. My approach to couple work is to assess the relationship strengths and build on these while teaching key skills and resolving the challenges the couple faces. While looking at old issues is useful at times, I generally focus on how to build a clear & hopeful future. My clinical approach is direct, supportive and active.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55408 - Nearby to Columbus.

Relationships are difficult. They take work. Are you and your partner finding that you are not as connected as you once were? Are you finding that sex is not as fulfilling or that you have lost the intimate connection you desire? In working with couples your relationship is the client. We will identify your goals for the relationship and together put together a treatment plan to reach the goals. We are skilled at working with heterosexual, same sex, and unique love relationships. Since most of the work in your relationship will be done outside of a therapy session, after the intake phase we will meet for a 75 minute session every other week.

Paul Dousi, Phd, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55316 - Nearby to Columbus.

I know that when I work with couples I have to quickly give them some hope that they can actually work out their differences. I find that it is imperative from the beginning to give both people in the relationship an individual and adequate opportunity to be heard about the pain that they are experiencing. In my role as a therapist I teach people about the art and science of communication and give them specific handouts on how they can successfully be able to understand both the thoughts and the pain of one another successfully. I am extremely practical and do a lot of in session work with role plays and modeling. I spend time on conflict resolution, problem solving and forgiveness.

Couples Counselor

Jeffrey Hupf, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55114 - Nearby to Columbus.

Having been trained in a systems approach to couples therapy, my focus will be on the negative pattern of interaction (the two way street) that causes your disconnect. As result, neither partner will feel blamed, but both partners will learn ways to show up as their best self. In session I will actively engage you so that you are learning by doing. With such experiences in session, it is easier to repeat positive behaviors for repair and connection at home. You will learn to advocate for yourself so that you are heard and seen even in the tough times. When crisis or affairs have afflicted a couple, we will be sure to do the work of healing so that you can move forward when ready.

Couples Counselor

Cathy Johnston, MA, LMFT, CST

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, AASECT Certified Sex Therapist

In 55408 - Nearby to Columbus.

Want to bring back the joy and excitement you used to feel together? I help couples understand and negotiate differences in needs and feelings about a variety of issues, including communication, sex, family, shared time and future plans. You may be unsure whether you can work past the ways you've been hurt and trust each other again. Learning to stay present and listen to each other as you talk about your hopes and desires will bring you closer to the kind of relationship you really want. When you've gotten into the habit of feeling misunderstood and blamed, having a third party present to interrupt negative patterns and coach you to more effective conversations is key to creating change.

It is very challenging and rewarding working with couples. Issues in our primary relationship can impact all aspects of our life. It can be single issue based or very pervasive. A strong component of all approaches to couples' issues is learning the ability to communicate. This skill has often retreated through years of hurt feelings, defensiveness, shame. We strive to repair any damage that has been done and develop a balanced, caring relationship where both peoples’ needs are being met.

Alexa Tennyson, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55407 - Nearby to Columbus.

Couples therapy is my favorite work to do! Using Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT), we will identify how you get stuck in the same arguments over and over, what underlying emotions and needs are unmet, and how to communicate on a deeper emotional level to feel more connected and understood. EFT works beautifully and leads to long lasting change! I can help you with conflict resolution, communication skills, sex and passion, infidelity and/or past hurts, creating meaning in your relationship, concerns related to extended family, parenting, or other issues. In our work together, you will be able to have the fulfilling, loving, and meaningful relationship you are hoping for.

Monica Landolt White, PhD, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55403 - Nearby to Columbus.

I help individuals in relationships identify and understand the negative interaction patterns that they have developed over time. I see these patterns as naturally occurring forms of self-protection when needs are not being met, and when difficult emotions don't feel safe to express. I help individuals create change not through blaming each other but through understanding that these patterns are the problem and that change is always possible. I have completed level two (core skills training) in the practice of Emotion-Focused Therapy and seek consultation, training and supervision with experts in the field on a regular basis.
