Couples come in a variety of packages. Some are married, some are dating, some are committed, but with no desire to marry. Regardless of what the package, relationships are the most challenging and rewarding endeavor of the human race. Through relationship we identify our hidden wounds and our deepest fears. We also have access to our greatest emotional connections and the growth of our soul. Counseling is not the last chance for a couple, but the first. www.melissaquiter.com

Two individuals from differing backgrounds meet and "fall in love". They begin to notice the relationship is deteriorating instead of being enhanced over time. Feelings are ignored and are not discussed. Soon, two people who should offer support and companionship to each other can't speak without arguing or feeling hurt. Couples go through stages in relationships. In the beginning that time of closeness is cherished, but each individual in the relationship needs growth for themselves as well as to enhance the realtionship. When love starts to erode, it's time to open up communication instead of assuming you know the motives of your partner. Give open dialogue another chance.

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?

Licensed clinical social worker

In 78746 - Nearby to Briarcliff.

For over 15 year I have enjoyed working with couples either married or singles. The time and effort people put into a relationship is worthy of consideration and if trouble, tensions, misunderstanding arise, it's always advantage to take a look at what the problem is and how it began if for no other reason than to learn from the situation so as to not repeat it. I follow John Gottman's philosophy and theory and work actively and vigorously with the couple.

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 78620 - Nearby to Briarcliff.

Partnering with someone, whether personal or professional, comes with problems to solve, obstacles to overcome and successes to garner. Discovering ways and means of communicating with each other, understanding the point of view of your partner (without giving up your own point of view), getting on the same page regarding the problem to be solved is the aim of couples counseling. Coming to mutually satisfying conclusions is the result.

Couples sometimes get into a negative and hurtful cycle where one behavior causes a negative reaction that ultimately leads to a feeling of disconnection in both parties. Each partner then is frustrated, hurt, and sad to see their relationship slip away. Most have tried to change behaviors or to have conversations about their relationship but find themselves going back to the old negative cycle very soon feeling stuck and more frustrated. My work with couples consists on helping them feel reconnected and in a safe and loving relationship. This leads to a new positive cycle of interaction where both can continue to grow together.

Working with couples is one of my strengths. Couples are two individuals who come from very different backgrounds in some cases who have come together to form a new partnership. I work with couples through Intimacy Therapy to help them achieve the relationships they are looking for by identifying the aloneness they are feeling and how it can be removed; the relational needs the are needing to be met; and the pain they are experiencing that needs to be healed, with the help of the other.

Being in a relationship is hard work. And growing up doesn't often prepare us for the challenges of creating a new family. My approach helps you learn how to communicate better with each other. This often means learning how to be vulnerable. This work isn't easy and it takes time but is so worth it.

I work with many couples seeking to understand where the conflict in the relationship stems from. I am a trained mediator which addresses conflict resolution. Additionally, I am trained in the Gottman Method for couples and emotional focused couples work. I use attachment theory to help couples understand why they react they way they do. I work with couples dealing with infidelity and help to understand and rebuild trust and intimacy within the relationship.

With couples, I practice Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), which is focused on the reconnection between partners. This approach views attachment, or the loving bond between partners, to be the key element in relationships. When couples argue over various issues, such as money, sex, chores, or important decisions, one or both partners often feels disconnected, unimportant, or insecure with their partner. When we feel our important others are not there for us, we are biologically wired to feel distressed and become anxious and agitated or numb and distant. If we do not reconnect and re-establish our sense of safety with our partner, we can get stuck in rigid, habitual patterns of

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 78641 - Nearby to Briarcliff.

Having worked with couples for several years, I find that there are very common themes that pop up. The major issues begin when the communication breaks down. I know the value and have the skills to help restore (or install) healthy communication patterns. Once we have communication in place we are able to focus on the other issues that come up in relationships, including meeting each other's needs, roles, power differentials, financial issues, past baggage, grudges and resentments,roles, extended families or parenting disagreements to name a few. I work hard to create balance in the session so that neither spouse feels constantly picked on, or in the hot seat and I encourage feedback.

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.
