Marriage and Couples Counseling
with Edie Stone, MA, LPC
2027 Broadway, Suite H
Boulder, Colorado 80302
Helping couples reconnect and deepen their
relationships since 1997.
Is your relationship in trouble? Are you experiencing either
increasing conflict, or more distance and isolation? Do you long for
the connection and love you used to feel in your marriage? Are you
afraid you are headed for a break-up or divorce?
No matter what level of distress you are feeling, couples counseling
or marriage counseling can help you move forward.
I understand ... it can be difficult to reach out for help. Perhaps
you feel embarrassed or anxious about discussing problems in your
relationship. Or you may be angry and can hardly talk to each other.
Or perhaps you feel isolated or hopeless.
But you will feel better if you explore couples or marriage
counseling now, gain some skills, and begin to change the painful
patterns you are experiencing, rather than delay, hoping that
something will somehow change in your relationship.
I offer emotional support for both of you, skills to help you
communicate more effectively, help in untangling the patterns that
you are struggling with, and insight and healing for deeper issues.
Please call 303-415-3755 or email
me to schedule an initial consultation. I offer private,
confidential marriage and couples counseling sessions. Or check out
my relationship skills seminars, below.
Workshops, seminars, and private sessions to help you
resolve issues and revitalize your relationship.

Professional background - Edie
Stone, MA, LPC
I have been happily married for over 40 years. I have
received professional training in:
- PACT - A Psychobiological Approach to Couples
© as developed by Stan Tatkin, PsyD, MFT. An exciting new
approach which combines neurobiology, attachment theory, and
Gestalt. Stan says, "PACT integrates mind and body functioning
and gives couples the tools to create a safe and secure,
long-lasting relationship." I have completed PACT Level 1, and I
am enthusiastically taking further trainings this year.
(Practical Application of Intimate Relationship Skills)
which I believe provides the clearest and most practical
tools for learning essential communication skills.
Materials developed by Lori Gordon, PhD. Local
teacher and mentor, Robin Temple, MSW. 2005-current.
is a course in Certified Love Education™ as developed by
Pat Love, EdD, and her daughter Kim McFadden. This

the chemistry, physiology, and emotional development of
sexuality, love, passion, and intimacy. 2007

or unconscious image of the ideal partner. 2007
- "The spiritual path of healing
in couplehood has a unique aspect that other spiritual
paths (solitary, community, and service) do not have: it
provides an encounter with the bruised or missing pieces
of the self." Harville Hendrix
