Counseling for Couples
Whatever you are facing as a couple we are here to help.
From marital crisis, to couples on the fence, pre-marital counseling, a healthy "tune-up," contemplating divorce, co-parenting, co-dependency, unconventional couples, sexual issues, infidelity, addiction, and everything in between, we have a counselor to best meet you there.
Additionally as providers, should we ever feel that we are unequipped or out of our scope of practice to work with the need you present with, we will work diligently with you to locate a provider within or outside of our practice to best meet your relationship needs.
Check out our counselors below and find the approach that most resonates with you.
Joanna Dixon, LMFT
"We fight hardest for the things that matter the most to us. Our most intimate relationships are the things that have the ability to leave us feeling the most exposed and vulnerable."
Joanna isn't afraid to sit in the pit with her couples and help them to see that vulnerable and often scary space as an opportunity to be fiercely courageous! She believes that is where you can connect for maybe the first time to your most authentic self, and then bring that to your partner for a dynamic and passionate connection.
Nicole Heckel, MMFT
As a marriage and family counselor my approach is whole-person centered where we are looking not just at the problem but how the problem began. I provide a safe environment to allow you to share and process what you are working through. If you are struggling with disconnect, communication, codependency, or boundary setting please reach out. I also provide pre-marital counseling.
Loren Jahner, MMFT
Loren believes that in order to solve the problems that life can throw at us, we need to look at it from all possible angles to help find the best solution. Also, that YOU, as the client, already have those tools needed to solve the issue, and her job is to help you discover the best ways to access them.
Becky Kimbrough, MMFT
Connection, security, support, trust, intimacy, respect, belonging, passion.…all things we yearn for in our relationships.
Is there an unresolved conflict keeping you stuck in a cycle of disagreement and disconnection? Is there a communication barrier keeping you from opening up to your partner in a truly vulnerable and authentic way? Have lingering resentments or current conflicts caused indifference or dismissal where there was once excitement and acceptance?
Whatever your needs and goals for couples therapy, my goal is to equip you with the support, skills, and confidence to navigate the journey back to the kind of compassionate, engaged, enthusiastic partnership you crave. Putting in the work – together! – to develop insight in a safe space furthers your understanding of your partner, enriches your partnership, and is an investment in the future of your relationship. I am honored to be part of your journey to greater intimacy and understanding.
Mandy Middleton, MMFT
As a couple's therapist, I help the pair identify patterns within their relationship that is unhelpful and contributes to disconnection. To provide more insight about the defense mechanisms that each partner uses and why, I like to dive into how the family history of each person worked in the past and present. Once we begin to understand why we react the way we do and become familiar with the triggers that set off our most painful feelings and fears, I believe that we are then able to relate and interact with our loved one with more honesty, openness and love.
Marriage & Family Therapist, Associate
Connecting with her clients and helping them navigate through life’s challenges while promoting health, healing, and growth is one of Lindsay's top priorities. She believes that everyone can benefit from therapy.
You have your own unique story to tell, and those experiences have led you to the person you are today. She offers her client’s a non-judgmental, safe space to explore their deepest feelings while providing them with validation, hope, and encouragement.
Kristen Webster, MMFT
To speak, and be heard.
To find your voice and advocate for yourself while still having compassion for those around you.
These are some things that are a natural byproduct of your time in working with Kristen.
Kristen is a skilled listener and enjoys the process of working with others to find creative solutions to life’s difficult problems. She is passionate about working with her clients through challenging life adjustments, anxiety, depression, and codependency.
Trey Manor, MMFT
Relationships can be both either a buffer against hardships or the cause of our pain and heartache. Sometimes they can even be both.
I firmly believe we are created for relationships, yet often times we’re unsure how to cultivate, grow, and sustain them.
Connection can be what we desire most, but it can feel unreachable. A common misconception is that wholeness and intimacy can only be found in marriage. People are made for connection and community; our deepest desire is to be known and loved. This desire can be fulfilled in multiple forms of relationship. Accordingly, I believe that we are made to come together in robust relationships with those we love most.
Lauren Lowery, MMFT
As each individual is unique, Lauren believes that no two therapy processes are the same. She primarily utilizes an attachment-based lens, understanding that the way we attach as children plays a direct role in how we attach to others around us as adults. She hopes to help clients understand themselves in the context of a larger system.
Julie Flannagan, MMFT
Julie has a passion for helping others transform their hardships into strengths. She has been through her own challenges and knows how much we can learn and grow from facing adversity.
She is passionate about supporting you in finding your best self on the other side of whatever might be dragging you down. She brings warmth, directness, and valuable life experience to her work as a Marriage and Family Therapist.
Rebekah Bragan, MMFT
Everyone occasionally gets in a rut or gets stuck from hurts or unhealthy habits. When it keeps you from living your best life and being your best self, taking the first step to get unstuck is sometimes the hardest. Life experience, personal crises, and various roles have given Rebekah avast base from which to pull to help you maximize your God-given potential, overcome challenges, and celebrate the joys of life.
Using a blended approach that is as unique as each individual’s story, she utilizes several therapy models and techniques to help one achieve their goals. Offering compassion, lots of grace, and a listening ear, she strives to provide a safe place where change and growth can happen.
