Ryan McMillian


About Me

Here we go again. The argument loop is playing, and it's been on repeat for years. You want to talk about it, and your spouse feels that talking about it will only make it worse. To get your spouse to listen, you get louder. To feel appreciated, you criticize. Meanwhile to feel capable, your spouse avoids and hopes that somehow the problem will go away. How do we get unstuck?

I create a safety for couples to take off the armor that keeps them stuck, and reopen communication so the passion can be recaptured. I use a proven evidence based model called Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy. I have worked with couples in private practice and facilitated sold out workshops, and I helped them prioritize the relationship and eliminate blame. I am a License Marriage & Family Therapist in PA that specializes in helping you rebuild the intimacy.

Written by S.A. on Jul 20, 2021 after counseling with Ryan for 2 months on issues concerning relationship

We feel that Ryan is intuitive, responsive, has a very calm demeanor, and is disarming, making it easy to talk openly. He understands and picks up on key areas to highlight during discussions. He knows when and how to be fluid based on where the conversation goes and lets his clients take the lead on issues that are important. He then works in techniques and exercises to help process those issues, all with the established goal of furthering and deepening the relationship.

Ryan has been extremely helpful in enhancing my relationship with my husband. He immediately picks up on and understands our issues, while also taking the time to make sure we are on the same page. He is able to quickly identify helpful resources/activities during sessions, and provides additional resources between sessions. He also makes sure to point out what we are doing well in our relationship while providing opportunities for growth. He is respectful, empathetic, and truly cares about helping his clients.
