My approach to couples counseling is unique. It is not about telling me your problem and having me find a solution-it is about facing each other and communicating and together perhaps ironing out a solution. There is no "he said, she said"! The structure of the session is set in a safe and healing environment that allows each of you to face one another and find the words you want him or her to hear but haven't been able to say and perhaps retrieve the love you lost. There is no problem too big or too small. Come to couple counseling and see what you can salvage; and if you cannot I will help you separate in peace and harmony. Partners in business can also find couples counseling useful.

I work with couples facing all different challenges to help them feel more satisfaction in their relationship. Couples counseling is a unique type of therapy as it is different than working with an individual. I pay particular attention to making the therapy process feel as safe as possible, and balancing each person's individual feelings and thoughts as well as their feelings as a couple.

Maintaining and nourishing a meaningful relationship is far harder than anyone can reasonably predict. You and your partner are both independently formed individuals that "come together to form a more perfect union." But if we don't learn to adapt and respect the needs of our partner how can we grow as a couple? And if we don't honor our individual needs and desires how can we breathe within ourselves? It is this battle of mutual respect for our relationship while honoring the self-respect of our individuality that creates the chasm of a couple's conflict. A healthy and supportive counseling environment can begin the process of regaining the spark that was ignited the first time you met.

Although some clinicians may treat unmarried/married couples differently, I do not. This is because I do not take a position, often assumed with pastoral counseling, that a couple ought stay together. My aim is to assess what the couple and family system desires, and where there is disparity, to facilitate a solution that is viable for all. Often, I work to help a confused couple decide whether they wish to stay together, and if they do not, I can help them decide how to separate, as well as help other family members make this transition. Many times, couples/family therapy is about improving the relationships without intentions separation. Assessment of needs is critical to my approach.

As has been the cry of physicians since the breed was invented: Why do you wait so long to come see me?! Research has shown that couples don't seek help for on average six years after problems emerge, by which time the resentment and problems have become long standing and unwieldy. By then, as any of you who have gone to couples counseling probably know, the therapy feels like too little too late and couples leave discouraged by the size of the problems. Solution: Go sooner! Even the best relationships require tending and attention, so when something is brewing that you can't resolve yourselves, don't let it fester. The sooner you go for a tune-up, the faster (and cheaper) it'll be.

Has your relationship become something that isn't what you planned? Were you so happy as a couple in the beginning but now, years later, you find yourself asking questions like, "Who is this person?" Has the joy vanished? Do you wonder if you have a partner or a roommate? Has the passion disappeared? Relationships take work and can be difficult, and psychotherapy with Dr. Swensen might be just what you need. I can help you learn to talk in different ways to each other and express things that have eluded you in the past.

Dr. Vaughan has been working with couples for over 15 years. Treatment aims to identify unwanted relational patterns and to help couples to work through and prevent such patterns. Partners establish relational tools necessary for clearly conveying needs and desires and for effectively meeting the needs of their significant others. Over the course of treatment, couples feel more trusting, connected, and understood.

I utilize an eclectic approach when working with couples which includes Imago Relationship Therapy and a number of other processes that help each partner feel fully heard and understood. My goal is to help you connect in a way that fosters empathy and taking responsibility for one's role in the problems which brought you to therapy. My clients often say, "I never felt like he/she heard me before. Not like this." Couples often say that they come to therapy because their relationship is not working and they want to make it work. When couples allow me to show them "another way" to improve their communication and connect with each other the results are transformative.

Careers and children each place enormous stress on a couple’s ability to be together in an intimate and satisfying way. Every couple has different ways of dealing with the challenges, and counseling can provide the perspective and encouragement to re-create a shared vision for the future. For something as important as this, it is surprising how little training and preparation is provided; family therapy fills in the blanks, and resolves the confusion.
Kristin Schaefer Schiumo, Ph.D.
In my work with couples, I strive to know each person well, to understand what challenges and distortions are brought into the relationship, and to foster an open and collaborative dynamic. This structure does not leave room for blame, which is hurtful and counter to the development of nurturing, bonded, and loving adult relationships. Instead, the focus remains on needed emotional relearning and behavioral change within the couple. To make your relationship last, you must become better friends, learn to manage conflict, and create ways to support each others dreams for the future. I will help you accomplish this by paying attention to several aspects of healthy relationships.
