Couples Counseling

Every couple fights once in a while. It’s a normal, and even healthy, part of most relationships. However, when the frequency and seriousness of your fights start affecting your health and well-being, it may be time to speak with a professional. A therapist specializing in couples counseling is trained to help you and your partner(s) develop tools to better communicate (and fight constructively), help you achieve goals together, or move past a specific event or cause of conflict (such as infidelity, sex, or household duties). In addition to helping those in a relationship have a healthier partnership, couples counseling can also be helpful if you and your partner are considering a breakup or a divorce – having a professional guide you can aide the both of you in making an informed decision. Think it might be time to give couples counseling a try? Reach out to one of TherapyDen’s couples counseling experts today.

My supervisor has completed levels 1 & 2 of Gottman Couples Counseling and we use this information and experience to help latinx couples strengthen their relationship. When working with couples, I often seek to understand each individual's needs and wants from the relationship. Relationship expectations may need to be explored and reevaluated in ensuring that both partners are on the same page.

— Ana Viana, Associate Marriage & Family Therapist

My training and supervision as a licensed marriage and family therapist is in couple's therapy and family systems theory. I am trained in a wide array of family systems and couple's therapy theory, and am flexible integrating a variety of approaches to best help my couples and families by meeting them where they are to serve their specific needs. This is particularly helpful for my clients as opposed to other more rigid approaches which only draw on one or two theories.

Couples therapy helps us navigate the most complex thing on Earth - the human relationship. We all struggle in relationships from time to time. We fight, we bicker, we threaten, we cheat. Eventually, we need some help. By weaving together attachment theory, neuroscience, mindfulness, and the most effective couples therapy approaches, I help couples fall in love again.

— Robin K. Schnitzler, Marriage & Family Therapist in Middleton, WI

Couples counseling is my jam. I like seeing the whole relationship in the room whether your relationship is just beginning or perhaps ending -- talking together is the style that I see working best. I think, and research shows, that when more people are in the room, the conversations are more productive. For non-monogamous or poly couples including others or a wider polycule in therapy is an effective way to create positive change.

— David Lieberman, Marriage and Family Therapist Associate in Boulder, CO
 

I use a variety of models when working with couples. At the base, I am attachment-focused and use a narrative and internal family systems approach, but I also incorporate imago, interpersonal neurobiology, Gottman, and relational life therapy.
