Couples Counselor

Paul Duke, MA, LMHC, S-PSB

Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate

902 Market St. Suite 310, Tacoma, Washington

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.

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.

Couples Counselor

Robert Olsen, MS, LMHC, CTT

Licensed Counselor & Certified Life Coach

3102 S. 23rd St, Tacoma, Washington

Rob and Dori are passionate about changing lives. The most popular counseling approach for couples who need a deeper, more therapeutic experience is meeting as a couple with couples. Clients get both Rob and Dori during sessions all for the price and time of the classic one-counselor method. About 40% of our clients choose the other approach called Relationship Life Coaching. Coaching focuses less on emotional trauma and deep issues, and more on communication, conflict resolution, and relationship skill building. Coaching is slightly less expensive than counseling.

Couples Counselor

Gary Mayne, MA, LMHCA

Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate

1011 S L St. , Tacoma, Washington

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.

Couples Counselor

Shawn Berthel, M.S., LCMHC

Licensed Clinical Mental Health Counselor

Life Path Counseling, PLLC - 2367 Tacoma Ave. S., Tacoma, Washington

Couple/Marriage counseling services are often tailored to the concerns of the client couple. We can examine any issues involved in your relationship, and then develop ideas and strategies to work on creating change. This is not the place to fight or argue, but rather to work on things like communication, mutual responsibility, and awareness of each other's needs. It requires both parties to be present at every session, and to be willing to work for the relationship.

Couples Counselor

Parke Burgess, MA

Psychotherapist

3503 N Cheyenne St, Tacoma, Washington

My primary focus is working with couples. If you feel like your relationship isn't as close as it used to be, or you would like it to be, or you find yourselves falling into the same old patterns of conflict or distance, or you are missing a real sense of connection with your partner--then I may be able to help. Using Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT), I help you explore the patterns in your relationship and get down to the core emotional drivers that keep you from being close. EFT has been shown to restore couples to a secure and lasting bond in more than 70% of cases.
