Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

In 55402 - Nearby to Excelsior.

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.

Jennifer Rives, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55409 - Nearby to Excelsior.

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

As marriage therapist I enjoy working with couples. Sometimes couples need help to work through issues such as infidelity, infertility, parenting issues, sexual issues, defensiveness, in-law problems, step-parent or ex-spouse issues just to name a few. I appreciate the effectiveness of emotionally focused couples therapy. This approach promotes compassion and emotional intimacy for couples. I also utilize the Prepare/Enrich Inventory, which helps couples identify their strengths and areas of growth. Then we process though the results of you inventory. Whether you are engaged or are looking to improve your marriage couple counseling can help.

Bruce Fischer, PhD, LP, LMFT

Licensed Psychologist, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 55408 - Nearby to Excelsior.

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.

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.

Monica Landolt White, PhD, LAMFT

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55408 - Nearby to Excelsior.

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.

Tessa Gittleman, MA, LAMFT

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55369 - Nearby to Excelsior.

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.
