It’s supposed to be so easy, isn’t it? Find that special person, create a life together, have lots of great sex, and live happily ever after. One of the biggest myths about relationships, is that it’s supposed to come easily and effortlessly. Well, life isn’t always like that so why should being in a couple relationship be different? As they always say, you get what you put in. If you have a bank account, and don’t deposit money into it, you can’t create savings, interest, or take out a bit of spending money for some spontaneous fun! But, if you take the time to learn about how the account works, and make regular deposits, your relationship will work for you instead of against you.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified Sex Therapist

In 55408 - Nearby to Circle Pines.

Want to bring back the joy and excitement you used to feel together? I help couples understand and negotiate differences in needs and feelings about a variety of issues, including communication, sex, family, shared time and future plans. You may be unsure whether you can work past the ways you've been hurt and trust each other again. Learning to stay present and listen to each other as you talk about your hopes and desires will bring you closer to the kind of relationship you really want. When you've gotten into the habit of feeling misunderstood and blamed, having a third party present to interrupt negative patterns and coach you to more effective conversations is key to creating change.

Tessa Gittleman, MA, LAMFT

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55369 - Nearby to Circle Pines.

How do people with different needs, experiences, and worldviews always get along? They don't. They do the work, learn how to talk about it, compromise, forgive, and repeat because needs continue to change overtime. Whether you're a couple, thrupple, poly, open, or more traditional, when you commit to life alongside someone, things are bound to get complicated. I help you get to a place where you have the skills to maintain a healthy relationship outside the office, whether your goal is to stay together or consciously uncouple.

Kelly Haase, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55108 - Nearby to Circle Pines.

When our life with our partner/spouse is off, it seems as if our entire world is out of whack. When couples want to make changes, we do that through committed work, engaging support, learning to actively listen, and finding new ways to share with one another. Not every couple comes to therapy because they want to "fix" their problems and stay together. Sometimes couples are looking for help in deciding if they want to be together. Sometimes they need help separating in a healthy and supportive way. My goal as your therapist is to listen to your needs/desires and help you achieve your goals. Uncoupling does not have to be a miserable process.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Working with couples is my passion. I see couples at all stages of life but often see couples who are struggling with keeping their relationship a priority while raising children. I strongly believe the number one lesson we teach our children is what an intimate relationship looks like. The "sex talk", " money talk", "don't do drugs talk" - these are all very important conversations to have with our kids but what our children observe and absorb every day is how we interact with eachother. And that is what they will ultimately carry on into their own adult relationships. What better motivation is there for creating a strong, connected bond with your partner?

Couples Counselor

Lyndsey Fraser, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55417 - Nearby to Circle Pines.

I specialize in couples of all backgrounds. This includes dating, engaged, living together, married, separating, divorcing, polyamorous, and same-sex (lesbian and gay). My goal is to provide you with a non-biased environment where relationship style is a personal choice away from societal stigmas. I also approach therapy with the thought that conflicts in relationships are not one partner’s fault. Instead it is a relational cycle that is influenced by all parties involved. Each partner holds a role in why conflict is occurring. Couples avoid therapy out of fear of being labeled the problem. In therapy with me no one is the problem. Instead it how you both relate that is the problem.

Chad Allen, MA, LPCC
Couples Counselor

Chad Allen, MA, LPCC

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

In 55402 - Nearby to Circle Pines.

In couple therapy, I strive to create a safe, fair, and collaborative environment in which each partner can freely express thoughts and feelings and come to feel heard and understood. I also help couples identify and alter the troublesome patterns in their relationships, often with insight into how they developed in the first place. By recognizing when problems in the present interaction are connected to past relational experiences, we are able to interrupt the cycle of conflict and blame, expand the capacity for empathy and understanding, and allow for the possibility of new ways of relating to emerge in the therapy.

There is nothing as precious as your relaitonhsip. That’s why your relationship deserves Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). This is the treatment that years of research shows to be highly effective in helping couples improve their relationship, resolve conflicts, repair trust, and feel safe, loved and connected. EFT helps couples get to the heart of the matter. It is designed to stop the negative and stuck patterns in relationships, transforming them into the love, connection and understanding you desire.

Minnesota Counseling and Couples Center

In 55369 - Nearby to Circle Pines.

Couples counseling is a specialized area of practice that focuses on past patterns, behavioral dynamics, emotional connection and intimacy/sex within the couple relationship. I have the experience and training in two emperically proven types of treatment designed for couples therapy. I also have training in sex therapy and am working toward my certification as a sex therapist. I also offer discernment therapy for those couples who are unsure of their long term commitment, and contemplating divorce or separation. If you are struggling with communication, intimacy, infidelity or trust, blended family/parenting issues, conflict, lack of connection- don't wait. We can help!

Timothy McCarthy, PhD, LP, LMFT
Couples Counselor

Timothy McCarthy, PhD, LP, LMFT

Licensed Psychologist and Licensed Marriage-Family Therapist

In 55437 - Nearby to Circle Pines.

Dr. McCarthy's approach of "Co–Coaching for Dynamic Growth" challenges many currently accepted beliefs about love/romance and what it takes to have a successful relationship: e.g. “you should just accept your partner and not try to change their behavior.” Rather, the relationship is seen as a dynamic growth process for learning how to become more loving partners through mutual coaching. Each partner seeks to clearly identify his or her own core negative relationship pattern and each helps the other change through mutual, respectful coaching. Couples previously unable to break longstanding recurring patterns learn to revitalize a new relationship of deep love and emotional connection!

I especially enjoy working with couples. If you are part of a couple, you know how challenging it can be to stay connected and in love. Maybe you're not even sure if it's a good idea to stay together. I'll work with you individually and together to sort out what needs to change in order for you to decide about your commitment to your relationship. You'll learn communication skills and conflict resolution tools to help you have a better relationship.
