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?

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

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.

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55407 - Nearby to Farmington.

In my work with couples and relationships, I understand that every individual and relationship is different, so I will work with you to find the best way to reach the relationship goals you have. Supporting couples as they grow to create a mutually satisfying relationship is what I enjoy about my job. Therapy is a great place to learn new communication skills, increase trust, and develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for one another. I will work hard to create a supportive, nonjudgmental space for each of you to grow as individuals and as a couple.

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.

Lyndsey Fraser, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55417 - Nearby to Farmington.

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.

Timothy McCarthy, PhD, LP, LMFT

Licensed Psychologist and Licensed Marriage-Family Therapist

In 55437 - Nearby to Farmington.

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!

Couples Counselor

Cathy Johnston, MA, LMFT, CST

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified Sex Therapist

In 55408 - Nearby to Farmington.

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.

Relationships are ever changing and developing a healthy connection that can withstand the changes is ever evolving. If you or your partner are experiencing times of disconnection, couple's therapy can provide a place to understand the disconnection and learn ways to begin to support, listen and understand each other to develop a strong emotional connection to weather all the changes in life. In my practice I work with individuals who are experience relationship concerns.

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.

Depending on your particular concerns, we may focus on conflict resolution, communication skills, sex and passion, infidelity and/or past hurts, creating meaning in your relationship, concerns related to extended family, parenting, or other issues.

Couples Counselor

Kalli Matsuhashi, MA, LP, LMFT, LPCC

Licensed Psychologist & Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55122 - Nearby to Farmington.

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.

Connie Studer, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 55408 - Nearby to Farmington.

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.
