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.

Chris Moseman, MA, LMHC, CMHS

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Within Driving Distance of University Place, WA

In my work with couples, I have seen how painful it can feel when the level of toxicity within the relationship can cloud any memory of why you love the person you are with. I am purposeful within my work with couples to not just resolve conflict, but to build foundations that draw a couple even closer together, to know your spouse and be known, and to know intimacy like never before. It is work, but the results are beautiful. Contact me today and I would be glad to hear your concerns and talk about how I may be of help.

Patricia (Patty) Swanson, M.A., LMFT, LMHC, NCC

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of University Place, WA

I do premarital and marital counseling for relationships preparing for marriage or dating couples wanting to work through an issue. I use Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy which is the most effective couple's therapy. Sometimes behavior couples therapy is used, and sometimes the two are combined. Infidelity is a commonly addressed issue, as well as emotional dis-connection and adult attachment concerns and mistrust. I also am a trained Prepare-Enrich facilitator - which provides an excellent and comprehensive assessment about your relationship.

Myla Haider, MA

Counselor

6922 22nd St W, University Place, WA

I often utilize Bowen Family Systems Therapy to help couples to understand how the patterns that their individual families have established in prior generations continue to effect their relationships today. I believe that relationships can serve the beneficial purpose of guiding every individual toward understanding and self-improvement and that relationships provide a valuable insight for both partners that can help them learn and grow together.

Couples Counselor

Robert Olsen, MS, LMHC, CTT

Licensed Counselor & Certified Life Coach

Within Driving Distance of University Place, WA

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.

Couples Counselor

Gary Mayne, MA, LMHCA

Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate

Within Driving Distance of University Place, WA

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.

Couples Counselor

Parke Burgess, MA

Psychotherapist

Within Driving Distance of University Place, WA

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.

Couples Counselor

Paul Duke, MA, LMHCA

Licensed Mental Health Counselor Associate

Within Driving Distance of University Place, WA

Sharing a life with a chosen, intimate partner can be one of the greatest challenges one can face, and also one of the most satisfying and life giving experiences possible. All couples eventually experience the transition from 'falling in love' to hitting the rocky roads where being a couple is frustrating, full of resentment, anger, hurt and other types of pain. It is ironic that these rocky roads are the pathway through which most couples must travel in order to find the love they want. I help couples connect with each other on a level that involves risk and vulnerability, and leads eventually to deep friendship as the foundation for a lasting, satisfying love.

Couples Counselor

Teresa Renner, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of University Place, WA

Having been married over 20 years myself (to a psychotherapist, none the less), I understand the difficulties of making marriage work, especially when children are involved. Utilizing approaches from Dr. John Gottman, Dr. Terrance Real, as well as Gay and Kathlyn Hendricks I am able to cut through a lot of the issues couples are facing to find the root of the problem, then offer perspective and skills that can change the dynamics involved. I teach communication skills, and the art of heart centered listening, as well as forgiveness and reframing. I specialize in working with couples who've experienced betrayal in their relationship. I believe relationships are meant to teach us, and heal us.

Couples Counselor

Lois Ridgley, MS, LMFT

Marriage and Family Counselor

Within Driving Distance of University Place, WA

I am always pleased to help engaged or married couples as well as couples who are living together. I make a point to bring up important issues such as commitment and what that means to them. My counseling services are not limited to any one sexual orientation. Using emotionally focused couples therapy, I help couples solve practical problems while helping them listen to each other emotionally so that real and long last change is possible.
