Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Online Therapist / Coach

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.

Julie Holt, MA, LMHC

Psychotherapist

2366 Eastlake Avenue East, Suite 417, Seattle, WA 98102

Couples come to me with all sorts of different problems. Maybe there's no sex in your life (or not enough). Maybe there's been infidelity (or one or both of you is considering it or suspecting it). Maybe you find it difficult to talk with one another. Maybe it's in-laws or your partner's friends that don't quite mesh well with you. Regardless of what the problem is, I can help you reignite the passion in your life for one another.

Couples Counselor

Cyndee Baldwin, MA, LMHC

Relational Psychotherapist / Counselor

1818 Westlake Ave N, Suite 419, Seattle, WA 98109

Have you spent significant amounts of time with your partner or spouse confused as to why they don't understand where you are coming from or what you are even about? Yet you keep going because there is some sense of commitment between you. One day something triggers and you need a change. I help couples and partners to see each other. How many times have you just felt like it would be so helpful if there was just someone else in the conversation with you both? As your couples therapist, I will help clear away the confusion and bring you both closer to sharing your true self with the other, in a way that can be seen and heard by the other; and that is where we will begin.

Couples Counselor

Emily Wood, MA, LMHC, NCC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

2722 Eastlake Avenue East, Suite #300, Seattle, WA 98102

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.

Couples Counselor

Wendy Smith, MA, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

18 W. Mercer St., Ste. 360, Seattle, WA 98119

When working with couples, I use “Emotionally Focused Therapy” to help partners deeply reconnect on the level of needs and feelings (as opposed to having that same unproductive argument over and over again). I also use very practical research-derived techniques to help partners develop strategies for successful communication and for joint living and dreaming, while, at the same time, maintaining their identities as whole and separate human beings.

Couples Counselor

Francesca Licciardi, MA, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

401 9th ave N, Seattle, WA 98109

My work with couples helps to increase emotional awareness and communication pathways for the transparency of the relationship. Developmental dynamics and systemic influences are explored as they prove to affect the relational style of the participants of the couple. Discovering a middle ground between individual and relational responsibilities is a check point throughout the work we do. Creating a safe and exploratory space for the purpose of openness and the strengthening of vulnerability is of central importance. It is about developing as a team and finding the rhythm within the dynamic to promote optimal success.

Couples Counselor

Sean Jackson, MA, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

1817 Queen Anne Ave N, #409, Seattle, WA 98109

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.

Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings?
