Couples Counselor

Paul Duke, MA, LMHCA

Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate

Within driving distance of University Place

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.

Gary Mayne, MA, LMHCA

Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate

Within driving distance of University Place

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.

Elizabeth Cabibi, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Couples counseling is about bringing two unique humans working to be successful in a relationship that honors their individuality while creating a merged shared experience. How does each person express their needs and hear the needs of their partner? How does each person address conflict or share appreciation? How does the couple nurture and respect their relationship? No matter what stage in the relationship, couples counseling can provide insight into self and the partner, offer healthy ways to communicate and build intimacy, and build skills that form a solid foundation that can withstand the ups and downs of a relationship.

Couples Counselor

Jason Soto, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of University Place

Relationships are a difficult endeavor, everyone wants the “perfect” one but how do we get there? Most often open and honest communication is mentioned. But what happens when communication is the problem? When you are afraid to express yourself given current or past experiences? Often difficulties in communication are indicators of deeper underlying issues. Identifying these issues and working through them can aid couples in coming closer to that “perfect” relationship. I work with couples who are looking for help for a variety of reasons. Whether it is anger, co-parenting, communication, emotional closeness, intimacy, or infidelity; I can help.

Couples Counselor

Bob Keller, LMFT, LMHC, ACHt

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist; Hypnotherapist

Within driving distance of University Place

My philosophy when working with couples is that I am not on the side of either of the individuals in the couple but I am on the side of the relationship. Neither side is taken during therapy but the work is geared toward resolving relationship issues that interfere with having a fulfilling relationship. My first goal is that everyone in the family or relationship is safe and my second goals always to preserve the relationship unless someone is not safe in the relationship as in the case of Domestic Violence or other issues that cause safety to be the number one issue. As I work with couples I work toward mutual respect and freedom for each person in the relationship to be who they are. T....

Couples Counselor

Teresa Renner, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of University Place

Having been married over 20 years myself (to a psychotherapist, none the less), I understand the difficulties of making marriage work, especially when children are involved. Utilizing approaches from Dr. John Gottman, Dr. Terrance Real, as well as Gay and Kathlyn Hendricks I am able to cut through a lot of the issues couples are facing to find the root of the problem, then offer perspective and skills that can change the dynamics involved. I teach communication skills, and the art of heart centered listening, as well as forgiveness and reframing. I specialize in working with couples who've experienced betrayal in their relationship. I believe relationships are meant to teach us, and heal us.

Patricia (Patty) Swanson, M.A., LMFT, LMHC, NCC

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of University Place

I do premarital and marital counseling for relationships preparing for marriage or dating couples wanting to work through an issue. I use Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy which is the most effective couple's therapy. Sometimes behavior couples therapy is used, and sometimes the two are combined. Infidelity is a commonly addressed issue, as well as emotional dis-connection and adult attachment concerns and mistrust. I also am a trained Prepare-Enrich facilitator - which provides an excellent and comprehensive assessment about your relationship.

Kerri Stoehr, MA, LMHC, CPC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor, Certified Life Coach

Do you want to experience a more fulfilling and meaningful relationship? Couples will benefit from working with me to help rebuild your friendship, intimacy, and communication. We will work together to learn conflict resolution skills, learn how to let go of resentments, learn how to hold a more positive perspective, and learn how to "fill up your own cup" so that you are not as dependent on the other for your own well being. Couples will create a vision for their relationship & family and support each other in making life dreams come true. I use practical and compassionate methods and use a lot of the Gottman work for couples counseling.

Missy Neill, M.Ed, LMHC

Licensed Counselor

Within driving distance of University Place

Relationships are complicated, to say the least. Even healthy relationships experience moments of doubt and hardship. I’ve helped couples overcome a wide-range of issues including mistrust, infidelity, guilt, poor communication, intimacy issues, and life changes. Building a life with someone is difficult. Sometimes it helps to have a mediator who can offer unbiased support and guidance. We’ll talk about your concerns, needs, and future goals. If you’re thinking about counseling, then there’s still hope. You obviously care deeply about your partner. I can offer help undoing negative patterns and behaviors so the both of you can build a happy future together.

Couples Counselor

Parke Burgess, MA

Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of University Place

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.

Couples Counselor

Leslie Fleming, MA, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate

Within driving distance of University Place

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.
