Our Lead Couples and Marriage Therapist
Chrissy Bensen, LMFT is our lead couple’s therapist and marriage counselor at bStill. Ms. Bensen is a Colorado Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist who provides professional couples, premarital, and marital therapy at both Woodland Park and Colorado Springs, Colorado. Ms. Bensen has been practicing in Emotion Focused Therapy since 2013, and has continually pursued advanced practice and study. Her style is warm, direct, and genuine. Emotion Focused couple therapy (EFT) is empirically sound and based on creating a lasting, secure attachment. It’s not an “easy” or shallow fix: This work is designed to provide a genuine, lasting, and deep relationship.
If you are unsure if couple’s therapy is right for you, or if one spouse is “leaning out” of the relationship, Ms. Bensen provides Discernment Counseling – a short, structured process for couples to decide how to proceed with their relationship.
Ms. Bensen also provides training to non-therapists on how best to support family and friends when they experience difficulties in their relationships. Click here to learn more Marital First Responders.
Relationship Help, Premarital Counseling, & Marriage Therapy
Many people fear couples therapy because they expect that it may be judgemental, high stress, and about the couples therapist blaming one partner over the other. Maybe you have had a bad experience in the past. Unfortunately, many psychotherapists have not trained extensively to work with couples and families- and it shows in their work! With Chrissy and her couples therapy team in Colorado Springs and Woodland Park, you will be working with highly trained and skilled family and marriage therapists who strive to ensure that all family members are respected and understood.
