Leslie Fleming, MA, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate

In 98020 - Nearby to Newcastle.

I deeply appreciate working with couples. Discovering the gifts and teachings you have for each other, supporting the deep love that is so often part of the pain between you, deepening the continuing journey of more authentic awareness of each other, and even working to let go of a relationship that no longer serves you is often magical. We explore the patterns that support and undermine your relationship, the constructs of belief, habit, and expectation that these hold in place, the ways to shift your part in them, and what is core to those fights about "stupid things". Working with how you communicate and moving you away from blame and shame builds a foundation for relational healing.

Marriage and Family Therapist

In 98040 - Nearby to Newcastle.

I am a Seattle couples counselor and licensed marriage and family therapist working with couples in conflict and marital distress. We all hit road blocks in our close relationships.I focus on the emotional connection between partners. When relationships experience a stress such as a betrayal, illness, financial crisis, or struggle with parenting, it's common for couples to get caught in cycles of negative interaction. I use an evidence-based approach based on the work of the two most influential psychologists in marriage and couples work today, Dr. John Gottman of the Gottman Institute here in Seattle and Dr. Sue Johnson, known for her work on emotion-focused therapy.

Colleen Hilton, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 98005 - Nearby to Newcastle.

Each person in a relationship brings their own unique set of experiences and strengths. That’s part of what makes an intimate connection so fulfilling, and at times, so challenging. Couples work often focuses on increasing the awareness of these experiences and differences and how they may influence interactions with our partner. By increasing each individual’s awareness of the patterns within the relationship, you become more able to make distinct choices around how you communicate with and respond to your partner. Our therapists are trained in research-based therapeutic approaches that teach communication skills, help bridge the gap between differences and repair breaches of trust.

Sean Jackson, MA, LMHC
Couples Counselor

Sean Jackson, MA, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

In 98109 - Nearby to Newcastle.

When I work with couples, I am very intentional about first listening to both individuals and then seeking to slow down the process of how you communicate with one another. By doing this, we are practicing and preparing you both for those real, in-the-moment conversations that seem to keep you stuck in the same place. By growing in your ability to listen to each other, you will begin to understand what it is that your significant other needs and you will begin to feel more heard and understood. When you do this, more often than not, you are able to break those old habits of communicating and relating to each other. Call me to find out more about this process.

Shelley Bartels, MA, LMHC

Shelley Bartels, MA, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

In 98020 - Nearby to Newcastle.

Perhaps you feel terribly alone in your marriage or maybe you’re always walking on eggshells believing nothing you do is good enough for your partner. I see couples who long to be understood, accepted, respected and valued by their mates. I provide tools for you to escape hot emotions and negative patterns of interacting enabling you to emotionally connect and problem solve. I rely primarily on emotionally focused couples therapy and I integrate other techniques when necessary. I’m experienced helping couples restore trust after infidelity and sex addiction. I also enjoy working with Christian couples who are trying to integrate faith into their relationship.

Cyndee Baldwin, MA, LMHC

Relational Psychotherapist / Counselor

In 98109 - Nearby to Newcastle.

Have you spent significant amounts of time with your partner or spouse confused as to why they don't understand where you are coming from or what you are even about? Yet you keep going because there is some sense of commitment between you. One day something triggers and you need a change. I help couples and partners to see each other. How many times have you just felt like it would be so helpful if there was just someone else in the conversation with you both? As your couples therapist, I will help clear away the confusion and bring you both closer to sharing your true self with the other, in a way that can be seen and heard by the other; and that is where we will begin.

Couples Counselor

Folktown Counseling, LMHC

Licensed Therapists

In 98107 - Nearby to Newcastle.

As couples counselors we utilize counseling theories from Dr. John Gottman, Dr. David Schnarch, and Dr. Sue Johnson all of which feature very different approaches to couples work - conflict de-escalation, differentiation and attachment. Depending on the couple we may borrow from one theory more than other. Our goal in therapy with couples is to be a third ear in the conversation and to help encourage my clients to say the things they need to say to their partner. We may begin to point out to areas where one partner may not be hearing the other well. In all cases we try to help clients listen to each other.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

In 98119 - Nearby to Newcastle.

You may feel like your marriage is a sinking boat. You also might be very fulfilled in your relationship and you can't help but feeling something in the way you and your spouse relate just doesn't work. So many marriages languish, two people who are legally married, but have begun relationally separating long ago. Our work together will pay attention to the difficulties you have together while also building on the strengths you already have. We will look into communication patterns, relational styles, your individual and collective stories. Whether it is an emergency or a nagging feeling or somewhere in the middle your marriage is worth the care and the work it takes to thrive together.

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?

Gary Mayne, MA LMHC NCC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

In 98405 - Nearby to Newcastle.

Money in the bank is always a good feeling. I work with couples to treat every interaction as an opportunity to put money in the bank to build trust through positive interactions. Working on communication is the avenue towards this idea, and create common relationship goals will provide the structure and common bond that provides structure while couples are not in therapy but still allow them to move forward.

Individual, Relationship and Group Counselor

In 98112 - Nearby to Newcastle.

All relationships go through periods of ups and downs, but sometimes couples find themselves unable to get out of a down-time and back to feeling connected and happy. I work with couples facing issues such as conflict, communication and intimacy. I approach couples counseling in three phases, first exploring, identifying and assessing for patterns and areas of disconnection in your relationship. Second we begin to repair and build new pathways for communication, connection and closeness. During the third phase we will look to create and generate for your future, identifying values, goals and dreams, building a foundation to support growth and change over the life of your relationship.

Psychotherapist

In 98102 - Nearby to Newcastle.

Couples come to me with all sorts of different problems. Maybe there's no sex in your life (or not enough). Maybe there's been infidelity (or one or both of you is considering it or suspecting it). Maybe you find it difficult to talk with one another. Maybe it's in-laws or your partner's friends that don't quite mesh well with you. Regardless of what the problem is, I can help you reignite the passion in your life for one another.

Having a third party present can make it much easier to talk about what is troubling your relationship without descending into fighting or avoidance. In a supportive environment, your therapist will help you understand how your history as individuals as well as a couple is contributing to your current disconnection, breaches of trust, lack of intimacy, and inability to communicate and reach workable agreements. Learn skills to better understand and respect one another, be able to reach toward each other for love and support, have fulfilling experiences of intimacy and connection, and create a life that represents each of you and both of you.

Sharing a life with a chosen, intimate partner can be one of the greatest challenges one can face, and also one of the most satisfying and life giving experiences possible. All couples eventually experience the transition from 'falling in love' to hitting the rocky roads where being a couple is frustrating, full of resentment, anger, hurt and other types of pain. It is ironic that these rocky roads are the pathway through which most couples must travel in order to find the love they want. I help couples connect with each other on a level that involves risk and vulnerability, and leads eventually to deep friendship as the foundation for a lasting, satisfying love.

Do you or your partner suffer from social anxiety and it's affecting your relationship? Social anxiety is a fear of negative judgment from others and it can lead to reduced levels of intimacy, suppressed emotions, feelings of isolation and loneliness and lack of communication. If one or both of you feels anxious socially, your relationship may be suffering too. Contact me for ways in which you can move past social anxiety to a fuller, intimate, richer, relaxed more authentic relationship.

Couples therapy is both challenging and rewarding.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

In 98119 - Nearby to Newcastle.

When working with couples, I use “Emotionally Focused Therapy” to help partners deeply reconnect on the level of needs and feelings (as opposed to having that same unproductive argument over and over again). I also use very practical research-derived techniques to help partners develop strategies for successful communication and for joint living and dreaming, while, at the same time, maintaining their identities as whole and separate human beings.

We identify core issues, conflicts & relational patterns that may be contributing to some of the presenting issues.

The goal with couples’ therapy is to find successful ways of interacting, develop healthier means of relating, use effective tools in communication & restructure a strong foundation for their relationship to flourish. Therapy provides a safe, responsive place to discuss issues and concerns. Through the course of therapy, individuals will be better able to manage other areas of life and make sound and healthy decisions regarding their relationship.

Philip Kolba, MA LMHC NCC

Psychotherapist

In 08057 - Nearby to Newcastle.

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.
