For many of us, problems with our partners can be the most frustrating issues we have to face, leaving us feeling “crazy,” overwhelmed, and miserable. We start our relationships feeling hopeful, buoyant, and exhilarated, believing we have found our “soul mate”. All too often, this dream fades within years, and we do one of two things: we jump from one relationship to another, blaming problems on our partners; or we stay in a miserable union, hurting each other and/or stagnating.

— Dr. Jennifer Kendall, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Frisco,, TX

Working with couples and polycules, I tend to oscillate between Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and Solution-Focused Therapy (SFT). EFT often helps to fortify the relationship(s) by examining current and historical dynamics; deconstructing any core or central misalignments, "hiccups," and impasses; and, in time, introducing values-based salves. SFT often helps to get right to the issues at hand, especially the surface ones, but frequently at the expense of context and significant strata.

— Karen Maloney, Licensed Professional Counselor in Portland, OR

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.
