Secular Couples Therapy in the Midwest? Does it Exist?

Does anyone have any experience with a good secular couples therapist in the Kansas City, MO/Overland Park, KS area?

I have been unable to find a secular marriage/couples therapist in the Kansas City/Overland Park area that doesn't adhere to quackery like the Imago Method. I have tried the Secular Therapist Project without much luck and I feel like if we don't get into counseling soon our marriage may be in danger. Consider this a desperate call for help.

Oh I'm sorry for your frustration. I don't live in the area anymore so don't have recs, but if no on else posts here you might also try asking the local subreddit
Good luck!

Emotion Focused Couples Therapy has sound research behind it - not just techniques based on research but also research showing its effectiveness in practice with a variety of couples and a variety of problems (not just easy, uncomplicated couples) Searching here, it looks like there are three therapists with varying levels of training in Kansas City.

Search Psychology Today. You can narrow by treatment type, expertise, gender, insurance, all kinds of things. Anyone who advertises for kink, queer or trans-friendliness will be more likely to accommodate your godlessness ;)
