Couples Counseling

Seeking out help for your relationship does not always signify that there is a problem. Some couples find that guidance from a trained mental health professional can help prepare them for a long-term healthy relationship. Others admit that they do need help and are generally looking for counsel in maintaining or saving their relationship. A therapist who specializes in couples/marriage counseling can help you and your partner develop effective strategies to improve your relationship. This often includes learning effective communication, trust-building, how to be intimate and how to be open with your own feelings. Finding the right clinician for both partners is important. Most couples counselors will offer consultations and or provide referrals to make sure the couple finds the right fit.

Partnering with another human is “risky business” full of big decisions, big emotions, negotiations, and changes. We often feel like we are stuck in a pattern or engaging in unknown territory. Couples therapy can be one of the most rewarding experiences where you can connect deeply with your partner while learning about your desires, needs and how to communicate them.

I work with couples who have tried therapy in the past but outside of a few techniques, really did not take anything away and the same problems continue. I work with the relationship in a very dynamic, attachment strengthening, insight-oriented way. I help you find what makes your relationship work and truly see each other as human beings.

The closer two people dance, the easier it is for them to either step on each other's toes or to dance with graceful harmony. If you find yourself stepping on each other's toes too often, it might be time for you and your partner to find a 'dance instructor' who can help you get back in step to find the harmony you've been wanting.

I love supporting couples, helping you to strengthen what's already working in your relationship, and to consciously explore and shift what's not working for the two of you.

Lauren Lottino

Our closest relationships are a source of joy, partnership, support, and growth. Which is why it can feel so challenging when struggles arise with the people we are most intimate with. Couples therapy can be an effective way for couples to explore the stuck parts, create emotional safety with each other, and engage with each other from their most authentic selves.

Often, it helps to have an outside, neutral person guide and assist a couple in improving their communication and seeing the patterns that may be hard to target when you're in the thick of the relationship. I use leading researcher and psychologist John Gottman's 7 Principles of an Effective Marriage, to help couples improve their relationships based on action-oriented techniques.

I have worked with couples in a wide variety of life phases and transitions, ranging from dating relationships and premarital counseling, young married couples navigating life transitions and stressors, to well established couples facing infidelity, domestic violence, sexual issues, and more. I integrate principles from Emotionally Focused Therapy, and the Gottman Institute in my approach.

I have been trained in both Restoration and PACT couples models. Restoration Therapy offers couples the insight in identifying 'Pain Cycles' that interfere with healthy communication and relational intimacy. PACT is a model that teaches the couple how to identify visual and audible cues offered by the body's nervous system when clients feel certain emotions. This allows for couple 'attunement'.

Todd Thillman

Individual Therapy, Couples Therapy

I received special training in my internship in counseling couples and understanding relationship issues. My approach is attachment-based and highly influenced by Stan Tatkin's PACT couples therapy training.

Paul Sigafus

All of the therapists at Colorado Counseling Center are trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples - the most effective, research based approach to helping couples restore love, trust, and connection. Couples who engage in EFT often find a closeness that surpasses what they have ever known before.

Molly Olk

After discovering and learning about Stan Tatkin's work with couples from the PACT model, I immediately felt myself drawn to wanting to work with couples from this model. The 'Psychobiological Approach to Couple Therapy' has been the most effective approach I have practiced with clients, leading to stronger attachment, more clarity of relationship trajectories, and effective sessions.

Rebecca Moravec

I have been working with couples for 9+ years with training in the Gottman Method (Level II), Emotion Focused Therapy and the Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy.

Alex Song

Utilizing an EFT approach, counseling for couples is a means to understand one another and better connect with each other. To understand one's role in a relationship and what one brings into will help the clients to differentiate and connect with each other on a deeper level.

Jacqueline Cohen

Reaching the point when you are ready to ask for support can be intimidating because each of you may be afraid that the problems you are facing are your fault. However, the truth is that both of you have a part to play in your relationship reaching this point and of finding a solution. I am here to help you both connect emotionally and shift to a more virtuous way of communicating.

Jennifer Tougaw

I am a trained couples therapist and I can help you navigate the struggles in your relationship and get you on the path to healing. Therapy can help disarm conflicting verbal communication, increase intimacy, respect, and affection, remove barriers that create a feeling of stagnancy in conflicting situations, and create a heightened sense of empathy and understanding.

Brionna Murray

My goal as a relationship counselor is to provide a safe place where you can share concerns freely, where you can develop skills, and where you can be heard - so you and your partner(s) can continue to grow together. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) to promote communication that serves the relationship, establish an attachment style that is secure, and help to improve overall connection.
