Couples Counselor

Russell Kauitzsch, MS, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

8500 N Mopac Suite 701, Austin, TX 78759

Couples work can be very rewarding. It can be for a dating couple wanting to learn more about one another and find the best communication styles and ways to engage. It may be for a couple who wants to separate on good terms. It can be for a couple about to get married, about to have children, who lose a child, or who are facing empty nest, and more. There are countless reasons a couple may seek counseling, but certainly counseling can help resolve some issues, bring clarity and closeness to one another, help with sexual issues, etc. It is also great to help resolve child behavior and family issues by uniting divided parents. Couples work has an impact far beyond the couple!

Couples Counselor

Jessica Buss, Ph.D., BCB Biofeedback Certified

Psychologist (TX & CA); Health Psychology, E-Therapy

11701 Bee Caves Rd., Austin, TX 78738

With couples, I practice Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), which is focused on the reconnection between partners. This approach views attachment, or the loving bond between partners, to be the key element in relationships. When couples argue over various issues, such as money, sex, chores, or important decisions, one or both partners often feels disconnected, unimportant, or insecure with their partner. When we feel our important others are not there for us, we are biologically wired to feel distressed and become anxious and agitated or numb and distant. If we do not reconnect and re-establish our sense of safety with our partner, we can get stuck in rigid, habitual patterns of

Couples Counselor

Janet Anderson, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Austin, TX

Having worked with couples for several years, I find that there are very common themes that pop up. The major issues begin when the communication breaks down. I know the value and have the skills to help restore (or install) healthy communication patterns. Once we have communication in place we are able to focus on the other issues that come up in relationships, including meeting each other's needs, roles, power differentials, financial issues, past baggage, grudges and resentments,roles, extended families or parenting disagreements to name a few. I work hard to create balance in the session so that neither spouse feels constantly picked on, or in the hot seat and I encourage feedback.

Couples Counselor

Aggie Beasley, MA, BCB, CART, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

311 Lake Travis Business Park RR 620 S, Suite 102, Austin, TX 78734

Two individuals from differing backgrounds meet and "fall in love". They begin to notice the relationship is deteriorating instead of being enhanced over time.Feelings are ignored and undiscussed. Soon, two people who should offer support and companionship to each other can't speak without agruing or feeling hurt. Couples go through stages in relationships. In the beginning that time of closeness is cherished, but each individual in the relationship needs growth for themselves as well as to enhance the realtionship. When love starts to erode, it's time to open up communication instead of assuming you know the motives of your partner. Give open dialogue another chance.

Couples Counselor

Tina Moody, M.Div., M.A.

Licensed Professional Counselor

2700 BeeCave Rd., Ste 114, Austin, TX 78746

Partnering with someone, whether personal or professional, comes with problems to solve, obstacles to overcome and successes to garner. Discovering ways and means of communicating with each other, understanding the point of view of your partner (without giving up your own point of view), getting on the same page regarding the problem to be solved is the aim of couples counseling. Coming to mutually satisfying conclusions is the result.

Couples Counselor

Ann McIntosh, MA, LCSW

Licensed clinical social worker

4407 Bee Cave Rd. Bldg 5 Ste 513, Austin, TX 78746

For over 15 year I have enjoyed working with couples either married or singles. The time and effort people put into a relationship is worthy of consideration and if trouble, tensions, misunderstanding arise, it's always advantage to take a look at what the problem is and how it began if for no other reason than to learn from the situation so as to not repeat it. I follow John Gottman's philosophy and theory and work actively and vigorously with the couple.

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

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.
