Couples Counselor

Kelly Haase, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Farmington

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.

Meridee Wilson, Psy.D., LP

Doctoral Level Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Farmington

Working with couples is not only my specialty, it is my passion! I love helping romantic partners understand and resolve conflict, rekindle emotional and physical closeness, rebuild trust, heal hurt feelings, and rediscover their deep affection for one another. I practice the Gottman method of couples therapy, which is a scientifically-based approach incorporating nearly 40 years of research. I will help you learn what happy, successful couples do in their relationships and how you can implement those same strategies right now. I believe that love is what creates a relationship, so I welcome you regardless of the type or make-up of your specific relationship.

Couples Counselor

Lyndsey Fraser, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of 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.

All couples encounter gridlock at some stage of their relationship. This is an exciting field because we therapist have so much more information on how to help. Often conflict in relationship is an opportunity for individual growth and increased connection in your couples relationship. I have extensive training in helping couples overcome their differences. I have trained with John Gottman, author of The Seven Principles For Making Marriage Work; Terrence Real, author of The New Rules of Marriage; and David Schnarch, author of Passionate Marriage.

Couples Counselor

JoAnna Smith, MA, LMFT

Therapist/Life Coach

Within driving distance of Farmington

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.

Couples Counselor

Chris Bezenson, DMFT, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Farmington

Successful relationships take work. It is not surprising that many couples encounter difficult struggles in their journeys together. Because all people are unique, all couples have to discover their own path through their struggles and their own harmony. Though there are some common helpful tools to learn, in the end, success in a relationship is as much about self-discovery, as it is about learning to live in a partnership.

Couples Counselor

Kalli Matsuhashi, MA, LP, LMFT, LPCC

Licensed Psychologist & Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of 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.

Couples Counselor

Bruce Fischer, PhD, LP, LMFT

Licensed Psychologist, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Farmington

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 work with a variety of couples including couples in the LGBTQ+ community.

Couples Counselor

Kerry McIntyre-Lee, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Farmington

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?

Connie Studer, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of 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.
