Couples Counselor

Barbara Cleverdon, M.S., LCMFT

Licensed Clinical Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Raytown

In couples counseling, I explore the needs of both parties, their personal goals, their dream for the future and how the two people can live out their lives either together, supporting one another, or determining the direction of the relationship. We will look at personality styles, communication, cultural differences and the ability to repair and/or accept repair.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Raytown

Couples, whether married or pre-marital, will benefit from developing a more secure bond, leading to increased connection and intimacy. Start your relationship off right by understanding how the ways you've learned to deal with distress are interfering with the relationship you desire. Turn the conflict into opportunities to grow closer to each other that build a lifetime of secure attachment and intimacy.

Couples Counselor

Afton Strate, M.S., LCMFT

Licensed Clinical Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Raytown

It is all too easy for couples to feel the strain of focusing so much of their time and energy on work, raising children, household responsibilities, and hobbies to the point that they begin to emotionally drift in their marriage. I love to help highly committed couples remember the heart of what brought them together, establish more effective communication patterns, learn how to have fun together again, feel more emotionally connected to their partner, and get excited about planning for their future.

Couples Counselor

Adam Lynch, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Raytown

Relationships account for such a large amount of our time, energy and emotions. I believe they also reflect so much of how we see God and how He works in and through us. I am convinced you can experience a fruitful and joyful relationship no matter how many challenges you face or burdens you feel from the past. This can happen in the context of a relationship where openness and forgiveness are working hand in hand. I really enjoy working with couples and have found a lot of success in helping in the process of healing and redeeming relationships and marriages.

Couples Counselor

Alex Ehrsam, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Raytown

Your relationship is my client. We we will look what is working and what is not working. We will look not only at the way you communicate, but the message under the communication. Research tells us 85% of communication is non-verbal, so the message behind the words is critical to explore. There are other proven ways such as the research of John Gottman and Susan Johnson.

Couples Counselor

Kristal Krahl-Camp, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Raytown

People see the word "Couples" and think it is just for married people. It is for those who are dating, living together, roommates, best friends, and those who are married. The common theme here is that there are two of you and you share some form of a relationship. We are created for connection, to be in relationship with others. That does not always go smoothly. Relationships take work and sometimes it is helpful to have a third party who has experience in dealing with differences and communication. Most issues I see come down to those two things and are easy to work with. ** I also provide premarital counseling.

Couples Counselor

Sherrie Pucket, LPC,NCC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Raytown

Most common issues between couples involves a lack of clear communication and the feeling of not being heard or understood. My approach with couples is to utilize the Gottman's Conflict Blueprint for clear communication as well as emotional connection. I also utilize Cognitive Behavior Therapy as well as Emotion Focused Therapy as tools to enhance understanding and intimacy in relationships.

Couples Counselor

Cheryl Pendell, MA, LPC, NCC, CPT

Licensed Professional Counselor, Certified Play Therapist

Within driving distance of Raytown

As a couple therapist I will work to provide you an understanding of what is going on in your relationship that is causing distress. I have extensive training in the Gottman Method and will also draw upon my knowledge of Dr. Sue Johnson's work in Emotion Focused Therapy. If you are in distress we need to work to help you find ways to communicate your needs to one another and to be heard by your partner. There are practical tools that I can give you so that you can learn ways to communicate and connect. Couples utilizing these methods commonly find that they notice some immediate relief and are able to begin to communicate in a way that each partner feels heard and understood.

Diplomate in Clinical Social Work/Dual Disorders

In working with couples, I utilize a transactional approach, augmented with humanistic cognitive behavioral therapy techniques. My experience has taught me that people come to couples counseling because of trust issues, sexual dysfunction, and a general feeling of giving up. My practice focuses on assisting the couple in rebuilding their relationship by developing positive communication and reactivating their relation skills.

Using her 37+years of marriage and realizing that any and all relationships require a great deal of time and effort, we can work together and find the missing or broken links within the relationship, and work on strengthening the bonds that brought you together in the first place. Mary works with all different types of relationships and enjoys working with everyone. Mary will help you discover some of the "whys" that bring you to this place, the "what you can do about it", and "when" can we start moving forward in a more respectful, compassionate way.

Couples Counselor

Aaron Mitchum, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Raytown

There's the details of a conflict and then there's the meaning. I work from an attachment perspective which means I understand the deeper stuff going on in conflict and work to support those healthy needs in each partner as they learn to understand and support those for each other. It really becomes about intimacy (in - to - me - see), discovering how to feel more known and loved and to offer that for your partner. This helps people to feel more balanced in their emotions during conflict as well as increases their ability to be there for their partner when they need them. The insight I offer helps people stop re-enacting painful experiences of loss and disappointment.
