Nicholas Wilkens, Ph.D

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 78232 - Nearby to Boerne.

My therapy with couples typically involves ongoing satisfaction assessments. I target the couple's previous successes in their relationship, fondness and admiration of one another (or lack thereof), and their ability to create shared meaning. I confront what Dr. John Gottman refers to as "The Four Horseman of the Apocolypse" in relationships: criticism, defensiveness, stonewalling, and contempt, and help to provide their antidotes. I see the relationship as my client (i.e., I don't "take sides"). I have taught the core course "Marital Therapy" in the Graduate Department of Health and Human Services at St. Mary's University in San Antonio for the last eleven years.

Many couples struggle at times to communicate and keep the connection strong. What at first seems easy to accept in each other or in a relationship can become difficult. Sometimes the very things that attracted you to each other become points of contention. It is important to address these before they become patterns that erode the love you have for each other.

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Available for Online Therapy

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.

Counselors can help you live a happier more fulfilling life by providing tools, support, coping and problem solving skills in a nonjudgmental and caring environment. Life throws us curves sometimes and we may feel stuck due to behaviors, influences, and circumstances. I would like to assist you in a safe and therapeutic environment. I also provide the Prepare and Erich Program for premarital couples. I am licensed by the Texas State Board of Examiners of Professional Counselors. I am trained in numerous therapeutic approaches. In a counseling session we will explore emotional and cognitive barriers, past and present relationships, and collaboratively devise therapy goals.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Couples benefit from focused work on issues of importance to them. Personality inventories, couple check ups, family-of-origin surveys with charts diagramming similarities and differences are fun, illustrative ways to understand, label, measure, and improve relationships. Gaining insight together in an understanding environment improves the way we live with each other.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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?

Couples Counselor

Edward (Chip) Flatow, M.A. . LPC . CtH

Licensed Professional Counselor . Psychotherapist

In 78230 - Nearby to Boerne.

I approach "couples counseling" through the individuals. It's not uncommon for sessions to be divided in two. After a few individual sessions with each person I generally work with both people simultaneously, and attempt to act as a translator to the communication issues that are usually acting as a stumbling-block to a smooth relationship. Although I absolutely do NOT take sides, I will unhesitatingly challenge the person who appears inauthentic. I give homework. Generally it's fun and brings people closer together. Sometimes it's soul-searching. I want to help you achieve what you tell me you wish to achieve; that being a smooth break-up; or living happily ever after.

Marriage and Family Therapist

In 78229 - Nearby to Boerne.

Relationships take many forms and are as varied as we are as human beings. Couples work is not always husband wife, but can range from premarital issues and preparing for life together to same sex couples. Learning the best way to communicate with each other and gain greater levels of intimacy is one of the main goals when working with couples and I strive to move your relationship to the next level.

Couples Counselor

Pamela King, MA, LMFT, LPC-S

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 78232 - Nearby to Boerne.

If you and your partner are struggling, I want to help. Using Emotion-Focused Therapy, I help you to explain to your partner those things that hurt you or leave you feeling alone, disrespected or ignored in a way that helps your partner truly understand. Once that "heart understanding" takes place, you will feel that deep connection which is part of a loving, respecting relationship that your connection once was. There IS hope, and change can take place if you and your partner want it! I would like to be your guide to that place of deep love, respect, and caring.
