Aaron Mitchum, LPC
Couples Counselor

Aaron Mitchum, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 66212 - Nearby to Westwood.

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.

Richard D Bates, Marriage and Family Therapist

In 66048 - Nearby to Westwood.

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.

Relationships account for such a large amount of our time, energy and emotions. I believe they also reflect so much of how we see God and how He works in and through us. I am convinced you can experience a fruitful and joyful relationship no matter how many challenges you face or burdens you feel from the past. This can happen in the context of a relationship where openness and forgiveness are working hand in hand. I really enjoy working with couples and have found a lot of success in helping in the process of healing and redeeming relationships and marriages.

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.

Sherrie Pucket, LPC,NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 66216 - Nearby to Westwood.

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.

Kristal Krahl-Camp, LMFT
Couples Counselor

Kristal Krahl-Camp, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 66102 - Nearby to Westwood.

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.

Stephen Brannen, PhD, LCSW, CCDP-D

Diplomate in Clinical Social Work/Dual Disorders

In 64131 - Nearby to Westwood.

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.

Laura Drinkard, LMFT
Couples Counselor

Laura Drinkard, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

In 66048 - Nearby to Westwood.

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

Teresa Cote, MA LCPC LCAC CRAADC NCC SAP

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 66210 - Nearby to Westwood.

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.

Afton Strate, M.S., LCMFT
Couples Counselor

Afton Strate, M.S., LCMFT

Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist

In 66204 - Nearby to Westwood.

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.
