Chad Allen, MA, LPCC

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

In 55402 - Nearby to Cottage Grove.

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.

In working with couples it is important to identify individually what one's basic needs are. It is imperative to understand your own personal needs from others as well as your individual needs within an intimate relationship. Often times issues arise within a couple due to miscommunication, misinterpretation and a lack of understanding/empathy. Feeling loved and being loved can mean two different things without open and direct communication about how each person needs to receive love in order to feel it.

Monica Landolt White, PhD, LAMFT

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55408 - Nearby to Cottage Grove.

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.

David Halper, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 55110 - Nearby to Cottage Grove.

I work with couples of all types. Whether you are married, in a committed relationship, or dating, the skills necessary for a satisfying relationship are often the same. The ability to communicate, the ability to connect, the skill of asking for what you want are common areas that can use some strengthening. I help couples work through any issues, misunderstandings, or betrayals. In some cases the issue is deciding to stay together or part ways. I facilitate thoughtful, mature discussions around this important decision. Self-register and self-schedule at mnonlinecounseling.com. I do in-office and online counseling.

Couples Counselor

Cathy Johnston, MA, LMFT, CST

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified Sex Therapist

In 55408 - Nearby to Cottage Grove.

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.

Jennifer Rives, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55409 - Nearby to Cottage Grove.

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.

Therapist/Coach

Our personal relationships are often the primary sources of both positive and negative stress in our lives. Common sources of distress presented in therapy include: physical and emotional intimacy concerns, affairs, issues of distrust, financial management difficulties, child rearing, divorce, balance of work/home obligations, and conflict resolution skills. Couples counseling involves a joint effort in which both partners work collaboratively towards a common goal. Our work together can address specific exercises to build your trust, reconcile past hurts, increase affection within your relationship, and improve your ability to communicate in an effective, but respectful manner.

Bruce Fischer, PhD, LP, LMFT

Licensed Psychologist, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 55408 - Nearby to Cottage Grove.

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.

Relationships are difficult. They take work. Are you and your partner finding that you are not as connected as you once were? Are you finding that sex is not as fulfilling or that you have lost the intimate connection you desire? In working with couples your relationship is the client. We will identify your goals for the relationship and together put together a treatment plan to reach the goals. We are skilled at working with heterosexual, same sex, and unique love relationships. Since most of the work in your relationship will be done outside of a therapy session, after the intake phase we will meet for a 75 minute session every other week.
