Couples Counselor

Howard Lambert, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Middlefork Road, Boulder, CO 80302

I teach couples "Full Respect Living." This is Terry Real's term for mastering the skills of relational living. Some of the skills I will teach you are: 1) sustaining healthy self-esteem, 2) maintaining healthy boundaries, 3) living in moderation, 4) acting on behalf of the relationship, and 5) negotiating wisely. It is often the case that practicing these skills can help you turn around a deteriorating couple relationship very quickly. However, when repetitive harmful patterns are operating in the relationship, we will need to look more deeply. I will help you to understand and change the self-defeating patterns that you have brought from your childhood into the current situation

All relationships have ups and downs. Often couples experience conflict because they have different communication styles, different goals, because they do not communicate with each other as effectively as they could or because they do not argue effectively. As a psychologist, I can help you navigate the challenging aspects of your relationships, improve communication skills and find more harmony with your partner.

Psychotherapist, Addictions Counselor, & Parent Coach

1530 55th Street, Boulder, CO 80303

Many times couples' problems are driven by their differing parenting styles and conflicts over how to raise their children. As a parent educator and parent coach, I can teach you a theoretical framework to help you get on the same page and learn how to work together to complement each other and take control of your home in a healthy way by giving up the control you don't need with your kids and having the control you do need.

Couples Counselor

Bill Frea, Ph.D., BCBA

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Boulder, CO

Couples typically come to therapy with the hopes of finding a mediator for their struggles. Both sides want to be heard, understood, and respected. It is critical that therapy begin with an understanding that all good relationships take work, and that work usually involves a certain amount of sacrifice. The top goals for couples is usually the ability to listen, the ability to be flexible on priorities, and the acceptance of measurable goals that both will be accountable for. These goals can be about sex, money, communication, home routines, or even relatives. The key is how we come up with the goals, and support each other in achieving them.

I work with all configuration of couples on issues of; - communication, - intimacy/sexuality, - maintaining warmth, desire, and attraction in long-term relationships, - managing relationship while raising children or working demanding jobs - unsticking stuck systems in the relationship - navigating changes to the relationship/agreements as individuals grow/change My work with couples is at the level of attachment and core needs.

Couples Counselor

Stewart Brown, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

1650 38th St.--Suite 206E, Boulder, CO 80301

Most couples come to therapy hoping that the therapist will fix their partner. Blame is almost universally the dynamic. If you come in asking how you might improve your marriage, you will be light years ahead of the game and will save yourself time and money. A lot of my training has to do with helping you eventually see that you actually can be more effective and that intimacy is possible. I use a combination of exercises and a process that increases understanding to help you get there. Once there is understanding, compassion seems to naturally follow.

Couples Counselor

Sarah Walsh, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Boulder, CO

I help couples by helping build and strengthen healthy patterns of communication. I give couples the "Prepare and Enrich" assessment to help them understand the other and begin to have healthy, honest dialogue about issues, struggles and expectations in their marriage. I work with marital and pre-marital couples from a Christian perspective, and I also help couples through a divorce or post-divorce who want to have healthy communication for their kids or for other reasons.

Couples Counselor

Randy Compton, MA

Registered Somatic Psychotherapist

1503 Yarmouth Ave, Boulder, CO 80304

I bring 25 years of experience as a mediator, conflict manager, and restorative justice trainer and believe in helping couples learn how to communicate effectively. This means taking responsibility for one's feelings and actions, being open to being wrong, being willing to say what you feel and need, and taking turns with one another as you explore deep territory. We will practice in the office and then take this home to try out, reporting back in the next session. I will have you read Sue Johnson's book "Hold Me Tight" which is based on Emotionally Focused Therapy. Couples work out some of the deepest wounds together and I see couple's therapy as a way to grow and deepen like no other.

Licensed Professional Counselor

2325 19th Street, Boulder, CO 80304

Why are relationships so difficult? Couples therapy can help both of you build the relationship you yearn for. You will learn new skills for communicating as well as tools to support your nervous systems to deactivate from fight, flight or freeze responses. Learn to tend to yourself during conflict, speak your truth and at the same time deeply listen to your partner. Learn to both say and hear the "yes" and "no" of healthy relationships. The secure bond that you build can help each of you heal from past hurts and change old relationship patterns that no longer work. Therapy helps you take responsibility for ensuring the relationship serves you well and support your partner to do the same.
