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

Cheryl Pendell, MA, LPC, NCC, CPT

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Play Therapist

In 64116 - Nearby to Westwood.

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 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.

In working with couples, I utilize a transactional approach, augmented with humanistic cognitive behavioral therapy techniques.

Licensed Specialist Clinical Social Worker

In 66215 - Nearby to Westwood.

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!

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.
