Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Clayton

Your relationship used to be full of love and laughter. Maybe now you're at a point of crisis where you're considering moving out & call it all off. You've been trying to work things out. Maybe you saw a therapist who didn't seem to know how to help, or you've had bad experiences with therapists in the past. Therapy does cost money, but it's far less expensive than a divorce, new living arrangement & the considerable pain & suffering of ending a relationship. You owe it to yourself & your partner to to make an appt. with me today. http://matt-lindgren-oakland-marriage-therapist.com/

Couples Counselor

Dan Quinn, Psy.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Clayton

My work focuses on a combination of skills training in how happy couples talk and argue, and the creation of safety and opportunities to create "heart-to-heart" conversations to restore and revitalize intimacy in your relationship. It is these two approaches that are supported convincingly by a large body of research, and it requires a therapist who acts as coach and referee. I don't let couples fight their same old fights in my office - the whole point is to get past the same old arguments and have the deeper and more useful conversations that have been sidetracked.

I focus my practice on supporting families (or key individuals within the family) facing issues related to separation, divorce, co-parenting and mixed/blended families.

Couples Counselor

Kelly Montgomery, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Clayton

I truly enjoy working with couples. The connectivity (whether you feel it there at the time or not) and desire to share a life and join with one another is paramount. I work with all kinds of coupes, in every stage of life. Dating, pre- martial counseling, Married couples and separated. Couples can find what brought them together again and learn how to hear one another, touch each other, and grow old together. Counseling can provide you with new perspectives and positive options. Powerful strategies and tools are needed to break old patterns and change your way of life.

Couples Counselor

Debbie Bauer, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Clayton

Relationships are hard. We need to acknowledge that, then address issues specific to your relationship. The most critical needs of any relationship are trust and friendship. I work to bring those into the relationship and find ways to foster them to make them prevalent over conflicts and everyday struggles. Communication is often the presenting issue with couples, however, IF an underlying warmth is present, conflicts are addressed and managed in a gentler, more loving manner. Couples need to find shared meaning in their lives and become each others' refuge. I explore with you desires, dreams, regrets, wants, etc.. Call me today and begin the journey back to your passion / friendship.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Clayton

I am trained and certified in Prepare / Enrich assessment. This questionnaire is used as a tool to help me find the couples' strengths & areas for growth. I use those strengths to help them with the areas for growth. This tool covers over eight areas of a marriage - communication, conflict resolution, sexuality, parenting, leisure activities and friends, spirituality, finances and family of origin.

Couples Counselor

Stephen Sperber, Ph.D, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Clayton

In working with couples, I recommend holding a separate individual session with each partner. That allows me to understand the historical background that each partner brings to the relationship and how that impacts their attitudes and patterns of behavior. That process encourages each partner to honestly identify their perception of the conflict without fear of recrimination from their partner. I can then bring both partners together and help them understand aspects of their relationship that underlie their conflicts. We work together to implement strategies which support the goal of resolving their problems and improving the quality of their communication and their relationship.

Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within driving distance of Clayton

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings? Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com to learn how! Or call 877-606-6161. DR. FLEMING'S NEW RELATIONSHIP/COUPLES INTENSIVES. www.kevinflemingphd.com/marriage-couples-retreats.php

Is it hard for you to have real conversations or solve problems together? I will help you untangle your painful negative cycles of communication and build new stronger connections.

Couples Counselor

Theo Reynolds, RC

Relationship Counselor

Within driving distance of Clayton

One of my main specialities is couples counseling. I work with couples of all varieties - not just romantic couples but any combination of two people who need help with their relationship; sisters, father and daughter, cousins, business partners. I also work with other types of couples such as gay and lesbian couples, transgender couples, polyamorous couples etc. I enjoy this work immensely and have helped many couples find more closeness, safety, compassion, ease and care for each other. About half of my clients are couples so I have a great deal of experience. No matter how old and deep the problems are in your relationship, I can help you finally move past these issues for good.

Couples Counselor

Lawrence Tunis, Ed.D, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Clayton

I subscribe to the John Gottman method which teaches effective listening, softening tools, creating love maps and building mutual respect and value for each family member. Family therapy is one of my favorite areas as I love to see couples and families relearn how to experience the love they share for one another and give every family member a voice so they can gain selfesteem that they can bring out in to the world.

Couples Counselor

Jennifer Twardowski, MA, MFTi

Holistic Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Clayton

Couples therapy can be both scary and difficult, but it can be an essential component in creating a relationship dynamic that can last a lifetime. In working with couples, I use methodologies from both the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy. In using these methods, couples are better able to understand their relationship dynamic, better understand issues or potential issues and discover ways to better work in relationship to one another.
