Counseling In Farmington, NMAs a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT), I work with Couples, Individuals, and Families. People at all stages of life are welcome!
I have been a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist for over 20 years, partnering with and empowering people to overcome barriers, change restricting patterns and regulate their autonomic nervous system. This allows us to bounce back from all those moments where life calls us to meet it on its terms.
11 Years Providing Premiere Couples Counseling Services in the Farmington, New Mexico Area
Premiere Couples Counseling
I have focused much of my work and training in the past 15 years on the art of couple’s therapy. I am pleased and proud to be able to offer you a creative and informed couples therapy process. Couples come to me with issues that include infidelity, unforgiveness, fighting, unresolved disagreements, parenting problems, loss of emotional and sexual intimacy, and general dissatisfaction with “status quo.”
My approach is directed by an integration of neuroscience, arousal regulation, and attachment theory. I contribute a synergistic blend of approaches such as Stan Tatkin’s PACT Therapy, Pragmatic Experiential Couples Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, Heartmath, Energy Psychology, Somatic Experiencing, Cognitive Therapy, Systemic Therapies and Humanistic and Spiritual Inquiry.
We are systems—from the micro-cellular level to the macrocosm level of being part of communities and the greater world. My own journey as a fellow traveler on this planet has inspired me to accrue lots of tools in my toolbox to address the many levels of the systems we live in. I believe as much in honoring our own intuition and body intelligence as I do in staying up to date with the latest evidence-based science. I combine approaches of energy psychology with the more familiar approaches of working with the mind and emotion. I strive to stay on the cutting edge of scientific findings and innovative leadership as it relates to wellness. I take great pleasure in bringing my clients solid information that informs their choices and systems for living.

Couples Counseling with Jean Manz, LMFT & Charles Stacy, LMFT
Couples Counseling is sometimes BEST when 2 experienced therapists are in the room with you—especially when the emotional intensity for both partners has resulted in one of you feeling great upset and the other one withdrawing. With a combined 35 years of experience working with family systems, Jean’s expertise in the couple dynamic and Charlie’s honed skill with Somatic Experiencing move things forward and creates a dynamic experience where new possibility is found.
