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.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 97015 - Nearby to Damascus.

When working with couples, my role is to help enrich the emotional attunement between the individuals. Exploration of feelings and needs in a sensitive, safe, and validating environment supports acceptance, understanding, empathy, risk taking, and security. Each partner needs to know that s/he is safe and secure within the relationship in order to continue to grow. Focus on increasing security and reducing obstacles to this is central.

Working with couples is more than working with communication issues. Communication indeed plays a significant role; however, living with another individual is a challenge in itself. Communication isn't always done with words, in fact most of it is not. I have found that the primary reason for disharmony with couples is in unmet expectations. Changes in life changes expectations. We have to learn to grow with change and learn how to celebrate it, rather than reject it.

The bond formed between two people is as unique as the individuals. The bond is special and cherished. However, whenever two lives are joined together communication breakdowns, hurt feelings, and conflict are likely to follow. The relationship that is most important to you is threatened. The person whom you have laughed and grown with has changed in your eyes. You are confused; you want your relationship back; you want your partner back. Couples Counseling is an effective way to learn new ways of communicating with your partner and redefine the intimate bond with each other.

Youth, Individual, Couples and Family Therapist

In 97035 - Nearby to Damascus.

When you and your partner/spouse entered into your relationship, you both brought with you distinct, rich personal histories. These life experiences contribute to the way we interpret others' messages, how we react in certain situations, and the style of communication that feels most comfortable to us. I will observe your interactive style and patterns, and help you and your partner identify underlying causes, past experiences or interactive styles that have you stuck in a cycle of unresolved conflictual communication.

Our most intimate relationships provide the most potential for joy and growth. That is one of the reasons that I love couples therapy. We can become more aware of the gifts each person brings to the relationship. Honoring each individual and choosing growth rather than shame or blame we find greater synergy. We can learn how to communicate and listen accurately. We can learn to coauthor our story as experiencing forgiveness that moves past blame or shame into lasting connections.

Are you experiencing relationship problems but your partner is uninterested in couple’s counseling? Individual relationship counseling is highly effective for healing personal relationship challenges (e.g. commitment and abandonment fears, past betrayal, unfulfilling relationships, loneliness, emotional reactivity, trouble expressing feelings) and for developing healthy relationship skills (communication, boundaries, comfort with vulnerability, handling resentments, increasing empathy). Imagine how well your relationship could function or how much more successful you could be in your next relationship if you worked through the individual relationship issues that are causing your problems.

Deborah Orandon, MS, LPC, NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 97219 - Nearby to Damascus.

I work with couples where either one or both partners are Highly Sensitive People (HSP). Relationship issues can be compounded when high sensitivity is a factor and the couple misunderstands the cause. In working with me both individuals will complete a "sensitivity profile" to understand where each of their needs and gifts can support each other and where conflicts may be anticipated. Often the couple simply needs help in developing creative living strategies to honor the needs of each member, but in other cases more depth work around the communication process is necessary and we work to deepen intimacy by developing empathic listening, sharing, disclosing and clear request skills.

Individuals who are experiencing difficulties in their relationship are often reacting to their spouse through the lens of a recent or distant breach of trust or attachment to a significant other. This way of looking at and treating relationship pain is termed Emotionally-Focused Couple's Therapy. Couples who are willing to come to the therapy room and identify the harmful patterns of interaction in their relationship and co-create with their spouses new, trusting, and loving patterns will often benefit from the work they put in in order to support a relationship that is very important to them.
