About Couples Relationship Counseling

Couples in crisis or couples hoping to simply enrich their relationships can similarly benefit from therapy. Couples are systems and when one person within the system is having problems the best way to address the issue is to work with the system rather than just the individual.

A systems approach to couples therapy centers around creating awareness of dynamics and working on communication. Using Emotionally focused therapy, nonviolent communication and Hakomi couples come to understand their patterns in new ways and begin to modify the impact they have on each other. Portland Community Counseling welcomes both traditional and non-traditional families.

Some couples may be interested in a more mindfulness based approach to couples therapy. Other couples may be interested in a more standard approach to therapy. The therapeutic approach will be determined over the course of therapy and be based on what clients feel comfortable and receptive to.
