Licensed Marriage, Family and Individual Therapist

There is nothing as precious as your relaitonhsip. That’s why your relationship deserves Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). This is the treatment that years of research shows to be highly effective in helping couples improve their relationship, resolve conflicts, repair trust, and feel safe, loved and connected. EFT helps couples get to the heart of the matter. It is designed to stop the negative and stuck patterns in relationships, transforming them into the love, connection and understanding you desire.

Couples Counselor

Meridee Rilen, Psy.D., LP

Doctoral Level Clinical Psychologist

7401 Metro Blvd, Suite 525, Edina, Minnesota

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

Connie Studer, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

3137 Hennepin Avenue South #104, Minneapolis, Minnesota

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.

Couples Counselor

Cathy Johnston, MA, LMFT, CST

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Certified Sex Therapist

2840 Humboldt Ave S, Minneapolis, Minnesota

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.

Couples Counselor

Lyndsey Fraser, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

812 East 48th Street, Suite 1, Minneapolis, Minnesota

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.

Couples Counselor

Kori Hennessy, MA, LAMFT

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

812 East 48th Street #5, Minneapolis, Minnesota

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.

Couples Counselor

Mary Hendrickson, Psy.D., LP

Licensed Doctoral Level Clinical Psychologist

11900 Wayzata Blvd., Sutie 216B, Minnetonka, Minnesota

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.

Couples Counselor

Couple therapy is my favorite work to do! Using the Gottman relationship assessment, we will create a treatment plan based on your relationship's strengths and growth areas.

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

Chad Allen, MA, LPCC

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

825 Nicollet Mall, Suite 1240, Minneapolis, Minnesota

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.

Couples Counselor

Jennifer Rives, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

3751 Nicollet Avenue South Suite 1, Minneapolis, Minnesota

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.

Couples Counselor

Timothy McCarthy, PhD, LP, LMFT

Licensed Psychologist and Licensed Marriage-Family Therapist

8460 Montgomery Court, Eden Prairie, Minnesota

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

Bruce Fischer, PhD, LP, LMFT

Licensed Psychologist, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

2840 Humboldt Ave South, Minneapolis, Minnesota

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.
