Couples Counselor

Connie Studer, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of St Louis Park, MN

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.

Cathy Johnston, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of St Louis Park, MN

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.

Bruce Fischer, PhD, LP, LMFT

Licensed Psychologist, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of St Louis Park, MN

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.

Meridee Wilson, Psy.D., LP

Doctoral Level Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of St Louis Park, MN

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.

Jennifer Rives, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

Relationships are ever changing and developing a healthy connection that can withstand the changes is ever evolving.

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

Lyndsey Fraser, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of St Louis Park, MN

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.

George Brisse, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of St Louis Park, MN

One of my greatest areas of enjoyment as a therapist is working with couples. Scientific research on couples' relationships (spanning from social science to neuroscience and back again) has skyrocketed in recent decades. Scholars such as John Gottman and Susan Johnson (check out their books) have not only begun to highlight the aspects of couples' communication that sustain quality, long-term intimacy, they've also made great strides in terms of translating those findings into the work of therapy. Establishing closeness without conflict is an ongoing process that requires dedicated patience and awareness. With time and effort, even the most distanced couples may be reunited in love.

Kerry McIntyre-Lee, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of St Louis Park, MN

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 Psychologist

It is very challenging and rewarding working with couples. Issues in our primary relationship can impact all aspects of our life. It can be single issue based or very pervasive. A strong component of all approaches to couples' issues is learning the ability to communicate. This skill has often retreated through years of hurt feelings, defensiveness, shame.We strive to repair any damage that has been done and develop a balanced, caring relationship where both peoples’ needs are being met.
