We identify core issues, conflicts & relational patterns that may be contributing to some of the presenting issues. In addition, finding the strengths and common goals in the couple’s relationship will be integral to the process of therapy. 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.

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.

Living as a Christian couple can be difficult waters to navigate. There is a desire to honor God while there is also a longing to get to know your partner more intimately. My approach to couples counseling addresses the issues that need to be explored so you can determine if your partner is one that you will likely be satisfied with years down the road while at the same time, exploring the issues that you need to address to be the best partner possible. With a fresh approach that is deeply rooted in Christianity but disentangled from unnecessary traditionalism, you will be pleased with the results of becoming more aware of your relationship.

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.

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.

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.

You can be happy in your relationship. We can help! Being a couple can be hard these days and couples counseling is very helpful in solving relationship problems, teaching positive and effective communication, encouraging intimacy and healthy connections with each other, recognizing and stopping destructive relationship behaviors, and promoting understanding, love, acceptance, and compassion for each other and yourselves. Being a couple takes knowledge, skill, and practice. It takes a willingness to be open and learn new ways of talking with and seeing your partner. For most people change is possible. We can guide you on this journey of discovery and growth.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

In 98102 - Nearby to Vashon.

I approach my work with couples through an attachment lens. This means that I treat the relationship as my client while looking at how individual's personal history of attachment plays out in relationship. Couples often seek counseling after trying everything they can to stay together, but feel stuck and weary. You may be wondering: How do I navigate the same fights over and over again? Is it possible to heal after infidelity or a breach of trust? Couples counseling provides hope and new skills to work through conflict toward lasting change. I especially enjoy working with couples whose relationship is affected by one or both of the partners' past trauma.

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.

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.

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.

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.

In 98107 - Nearby to Vashon.

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 Psychotherapist

In 98004 - Nearby to Vashon.

Relationships are difficult and many relationships can be healed if given the opportunity. I believe in addressing core issues in a relationship that address the couple itself. Why is the couple acting in this cycle and what can I do to help you identify your cycle and find a healthy way of interacting. I draw much of my work from Dr. John Gottman's research on healthy relationships and am not afraid of giving frank feedback when I feel couples are being verbally or emotionally abusive to each other. I believe in setting clear boundaries so couples learn to fight fairly so both sides can communicate their needs with each other without feeling shamed, degraded, or criticized.

Healthy relationships are central to our well-being in life. Couples in distress are stuck in unproductive patterns that overshadow the love that brought you together. Couples counseling is neutral ground to deal with challenges, from infidelity to finances. Our time together will help you develop communication skills, solve problems, and improve intimacy. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy and Gottman techniques to help you repair and restore attachment bonds in your primary partnership.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

In 98109 - Nearby to Vashon.

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.
