Professional Counselor

Couples are together in hope of enriching their lives by having a primary loving relationship. My years of experience working with couples have taught me that happiness in a relationship is less about "finding the right person", and more about developing the art of love through each partner becoming more attentive to the needs of the other, more accepting of who the other is, more appreciative of what they do, more affectionate in the way the other longs for, and more allowing of the other's personal growth and freedom within the context of a committed relationship. These are the Five "A's" of relationships. (thanks, David Richo!)

Couples Counselor

Steve Stride, Ph.D.

Psychologist, HSP

Within driving distance of La Vergne

I help couples to create a safe environment where they can share freely with one another. This is done by having the couple talk directly to one another about issues of concern while I moderate the conversation and direct it towards healthy patterns. Couples are given homework from "Hold Me Tight" by Susan Johnson and processed during sessions. The focus is to help each individual know more about their own attachment patterns and how negative patterns materialize in the relationship.

Couples Counselor

Ellen Wilkins, LMFT, PT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Physical Therapist

Within driving distance of La Vergne

Do you and your partner argue about the same thing over and over? Have you lost faith that your partner is really there for you? If you are always striving to be heard and understood, you can miss what the other person is saying. Miscommunication is normal. What's important is the ability to repair hurts and disappointments. We’ll use an EFT (Emotionally Focused Therapy) approach and techniques based on John Gottman’s research. Among the benefits to therapy, you’ll discover your pattern of communicating. We’ll explore new patterns so you can repair the hurt/damage in your relationship, reconnect in meaningful ways, build trust and a foundation for addressing future problems.

Marriage and Couples Counseling helps when relationships have been troubled for a while. It also serves in acute crisis conditions when either partner is frustrated, hysterical, lonely or misunderstood. Remember, marriage counseling could also be used as a preventive medicine if done on the right time and early on. It offers you tools for communication, expression of feelings, and problem-solving within a relationship.

Couples Counselor

Margarete Juliana, PhD, LMFT, RP

Registered Marriage and Family Therapist (TN LMT 0000001399 ) and College of Registered Psychotherapists of Ontario (#001593)

Within driving distance of La Vergne

During couple counseling I meet with the couple together, give each person an opportunity to talk about what brings them to seek support and discuss my approach using Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. I will support the couple to first recognize the pattern of interaction that leads to disconnection and discord. Once this is recognized, the couple is supported to interrupt the pattern and begin to understand the more vulnerable emotions underlying the discord, so that in safety they can express these vulnerable needs to their partner. Then their partner can respond to them with a new understanding and the love that they both need to feel close and bonded. Call me for a free phone consult.

Couples Counselor

Emily Clifton, MA

Counselor

I believe communication is the key to any good relationship; it's the foundation that one builds upon. Without a clear communication style it opens the pathway to misunderstandings, arguments, etc. The next is learning conflict resolution, deescelation techniques, compromise, and boundaries. Once you have these tools you can begin building upon the relationship and any other stressors that may be placed upon the relationship.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

"Happy families are all alike; every unhappy family is unhappy in its own way." -- The opening line of Leo Tolstoy's classic novel "Anna Karenina" There are consistent guiding principles found in healthy & happy couples. How they communicate; how they negotiate differences; how they handle stress; how they seek to get their emotional needs met AND how they respond to unmet needs. Every couple must engage those issues. Couples counseling that is practical & solution-focused can equip couples to resolve impasses and restore closeness. When you get right down to it, being close and enjoying closeness is what we all want. The good news is that it's within reach and not too much to ask for.

Couples Counselor

Brent Ketring, LPC-MHSP, NCC, CFTP

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of La Vergne

Couples face unique problems not found in other relationships. In other relationships we can simply walk away if we do not like what is happening. Not so with couples. Many of the patterns we bring into our couple relationships are a result of what we saw growing up and our past experiences. My goal is to help you have the relationship you want by developing a solid couple friendship, by empowering you to bring your desires for the relationship into the open in healthy, positive ways, to help you communicate at a deeper level, and to assist you in working through conflict in ways that will actually bring you closer together in the end.

Seeking counseling can be the healthiest decision you make for your relationship! Maybe you are starting your lives together and are considering premarital counseling to begin on the best footing possible. Maybe you are married and feel a distance growing between you and your spouse. Or maybe your marriage is on a collision course due to infidelity or other breach of trust. Wherever you are today, please remember that rocky days will inevitably come for every couple. But in counseling, I can walk alongside you as you learn to hear each other more clearly, understand each other more completely, and heal from the pain of the past. Take heart! Your relationship can be stronger than ever.

Couples often come into my office feeling disconnected and seeking to be understood by one another. They seek to communicate in a effective way that will allow them to work through past patterns they have developed in their relationship. I enjoy helping couples develop new patterns that allow them to ask for what they need and to work through issues effectively.
