Timothy McCarthy, PhD, LP, LMFT

Licensed Psychologist and Licensed Marriage-Family Therapist

In 55437 - Nearby to Columbia Heights.

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!

Licensed Psychologist & Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55122 - Nearby to Columbia Heights.

Couples come to me for help with a wide range of questions and issues - it could be for some pre-marital counseling, for resolving specific issues in their relationship or other people in the extended family, or help in working through a separation and divorce. Many times, the issue is infidelity. I help couples assess whether the relationship can survive the affair, and then provide support in doing that if they decide to stay together. Other times, there are questions about intimacy, usually sexual intimacy. I can help couples communicate more effectively regarding their sexual needs, and provide the education and support to help make this a vibrant and wonderful part of their lives.

Jennifer Rives, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55409 - Nearby to Columbia Heights.

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.

Bruce Fischer, PhD, LP, LMFT

Licensed Psychologist, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 55408 - Nearby to Columbia Heights.

Couple counseling is helping a couple to develop a number of key skills. These include communicating clearly, listening, emotional expression, negotiating, being respectful, managing conflict, problem solving and finding ways to negotiate how they connect and also how they create separation in healthy ways. Couples can get suck when these skills are not well developed. My approach to couple work is to assess the relationship strengths and build on these while teaching key skills and resolving the challenges the couple faces. While looking at old issues is useful at times, I generally focus on how to build a clear & hopeful future. My clinical approach is direct, supportive and active.

Monica Landolt White, PhD, LAMFT

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55408 - Nearby to Columbia Heights.

I help individuals in relationships identify and understand the negative interaction patterns that they have developed over time. I see these patterns as naturally occurring forms of self-protection when needs are not being met, and when difficult emotions don't feel safe to express. I help individuals create change not through blaming each other but through understanding that these patterns are the problem and that change is always possible. I have completed level two (core skills training) in the practice of Emotion-Focused Therapy and seek consultation, training and supervision with experts in the field on a regular basis.
