Mary Sheridan, LSCSW

Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Worker

In 66215 - Nearby to Gardner.

Mary enjoys couple's therapy. Helping two people reconnect in a more positive way is very rewarding. Using her 37+years of marriage and realizing that any and all relationships require a great deal of time and effort, we can work together and find the missing or broken links within the relationship, and work on strengthening the bonds that brought you together in the first place. Mary works with all different types of relationships and enjoys working with everyone. Mary will help you discover some of the "whys" that bring you to this place, the "what you can do about it", and "when" can we start moving forward in a more respectful, compassionate way. Let's get started!

Benjamin Smalley, LMFT
Couples Counselor

Benjamin Smalley, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

In 66047 - Nearby to Gardner.

The problem with popular thinking about commited partnership is the lie that deep intimacy and sexual happiness are natural outcomes of love. True intimacy takes effort, courage and education. If you are wanting more of it in your relationship, a caring and unbiased professional who is trained specifically in relationship psychology can be extremely helpful. In my practice, we will explore your pattern as a couple and how you learned that pattern. We will find your shared values and work through the wounds you have sustained in your relationship. In doing this, we will reshape the pattern of how you relate to each other in order to allow space for growth of intimacy and togetherness.

Diplomate in Clinical Social Work/Dual Disorders

In 64131 - Nearby to Gardner.

In working with couples, I utilize a transactional approach, augmented with humanistic cognitive behavioral therapy techniques. My experience has taught me that people come to couples counseling because of trust issues, sexual dysfunction, and a general feeling of giving up. My practice focuses on assisting the couple in rebuilding their relationship by developing positive communication and reactivating their relation skills.

Couples Counselor

Kristal Krahl-Camp, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 66102 - Nearby to Gardner.

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.

Most common issues between couples involves a lack of clear communication and the feeling of not being heard or understood. My approach with couples is to utilize the Gottman's Conflict Blueprint for clear communication as well as emotional connection. I also utilize Cognitive Behavior Therapy as well as Emotion Focused Therapy as tools to enhance understanding and intimacy in relationships.

It is all too easy for couples to feel the strain of focusing so much of their time and energy on work, raising children, household responsibilities, and hobbies to the point that they begin to emotionally drift in their marriage. I love to help highly committed couples remember the heart of what brought them together, establish more effective communication patterns, learn how to have fun together again, feel more emotionally connected to their partner, and get excited about planning for their future.

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.

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.
