Couples Counselor

Cheryl Pendell, MA, LPC, NCC, CPT

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Play Therapist

Within driving distance of De Soto

As a couple therapist I will work to provide you an understanding of what is going on in your relationship that is causing distress. I have extensive training in the Gottman Method and will also draw upon my knowledge of Dr. Sue Johnson's work in Emotion Focused Therapy. If you are in distress we need to work to help you find ways to communicate your needs to one another and to be heard by your partner. There are practical tools that I can give you so that you can learn ways to communicate and connect. Couples utilizing these methods commonly find that they notice some immediate relief and are able to begin to communicate in a way that each partner feels heard and understood.

Couples Counselor

Teresa Cote, MA LCPC LCAC CRAADC NCC SAP

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of De Soto

When doing couples/marriage therapy, I utilize an approach that assists individuals in recognizing and resolving conflicts to improve their relationships. Through marital/couples counseling, each couple will sit and discuss their thought and feelings. I utilize an approach that is unique to each couple. It can take some time, but as couples work through the process, they can develop techniques to resolve their issues and develop a stronger relationship and grow with each other.

Couples Counselor

Aaron Mitchum, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of De Soto

There's the details of a conflict and then there's the meaning. I work from an attachment perspective which means I understand the deeper stuff going on in conflict and work to support those healthy needs in each partner as they learn to understand and support those for each other. It really becomes about intimacy (in - to - me - see), discovering how to feel more known and loved and to offer that for your partner. This helps people to feel more balanced in their emotions during conflict as well as increases their ability to be there for their partner when they need them. The insight I offer helps people stop re-enacting painful experiences of loss and disappointment.

Couples Counselor

Kristal Krahl-Camp, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of De Soto

People see the word "Couples" and think it is just for married people. It is for those who are dating, living together, roommates, best friends, and those who are married. The common theme here is that there are two of you and you share some form of a relationship. We are created for connection, to be in relationship with others. That does not always go smoothly. Relationships take work and sometimes it is helpful to have a third party who has experience in dealing with differences and communication. Most issues I see come down to those two things and are easy to work with. ** I also provide premarital counseling.

Couples Counselor

Sara Minges, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of De Soto

Cohabiting couples are at greater risk for separation or divorce if they later decide to marry unless they have plans to become engaged and marry after living together. Pre-marital counseling is also helpful in identifying potential areas of stress, including finances, career, housework, children, travel and family gatherings. Many times couples wait until it is almost too late. We help both partners identify their wants and needs in the relationship and decide if they want to work on the marriage, separate or divorce. For divorcing parents, we provide co-parenting services to help establish guidelines, teach conflict resolution skills and minimize harm to their children.

Marriage and Family Therapist

I specialize in working with couples of all dynamics and with a wide variety of couple issues such as sex, intimacy, passion, communication, infidelity, trust, etc. When working with couples and families I will never see one person as the "problem". I see the patterns and the problem as the problem, not the person, so you can be assured a blame free environment while we identify and process through the struggles you are experiencing.

Couples Counselor

Barbara Cleverdon, M.S., LCMFT

Licensed Clinical Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of De Soto

In couples counseling, I explore the needs of both parties, their personal goals, their dream for the future and how the two people can live out their lives either together, supporting one another, or determining the direction of the relationship. We will look at personality styles, communication, cultural differences and the ability to repair and/or accept repair.

Couples, whether married or pre-marital, will benefit from developing a more secure bond, leading to increased connection and intimacy. Start your relationship off right by understanding how the ways you've learned to deal with distress are interfering with the relationship you desire. Turn the conflict into opportunities to grow closer to each other that build a lifetime of secure attachment and intimacy.

Richard D Bates, Marriage and Family Therapist

You will find most, if not all, of your friends and loved ones will be a friend to you or your partner. This is especially true in extreme stress, such as separation. Here, I am a friend to your relationship, whether the goal is healing or divorce, or deciding which route to take. I do not look for the guilty party. This is not a court. We will learn to exonerate each other and those who have chosen sides.

Alex Ehrsam, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Your relationship is my client. We we will look what is working and what is not working. We will look not only at the way you communicate, but the message under the communication. Research tells us 85% of communication is non-verbal, so the message behind the words is critical to explore. There are other proven ways such as the research of John Gottman and Susan Johnson.
