Afton Strate, M.S., LCMFT

Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist

In 66204 - Nearby to Osawatomie.

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.

Cheryl Pendell, MA, LPC, NCC, CPT

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Play Therapist

In 64149 - Nearby to Osawatomie.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Aaron Mitchum, LPC
Couples Counselor

Aaron Mitchum, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 66212 - Nearby to Osawatomie.

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.

Teresa Cote, MA LCPC LCAC CRAADC NCC SAP

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 66210 - Nearby to Osawatomie.

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.

Benjamin Smalley, LMFT
Couples Counselor

Benjamin Smalley, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

In 66047 - Nearby to Osawatomie.

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.
