About Ben Hoogland

Benjamin Hoogland is a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (LMFT) specializing in couples and marriage counseling in MN. He is the principal counselor at Twin Cities Marriage and Family Therapy.

With over 15 years experience as a individual, couples and family therapist, and as a graduate of University of Wisconsin – Stout, I am enthusiastic about helping couples learn how to create their ideal relationship. Despite what you may have heard from national experts, or your friends, it is possible. Not in the future, not with someone else…now and with your current partner/spouse.

I am married and have 4 beautiful children – all girls, under 8. I have learned through my own experiences that relationships take work, just like anything that is worthwhile. I don’t have many hobbies (see – 4 girls under 8), but I love nature, travelling and learning – I’ll never stop learning and growing!

In addition to being a prominent relationship therapist, I have presented internationally at conferences, churches and to general audiences speaking on the topics of communication, building healthy relationships, family cohesiveness, conflict resolution and more.

I provide support and practical feedback to help individuals and couples effectively address personal and relationship challenges. I integrate cutting edge techniques built to improve your relationship and take it to places you doubted were possible. With compassion and understanding, I work with each individual, couple and family to help them build on their strengths and attain the personal growth they are committed to accomplishing.

About Naomi Montgomery

Naomi is a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist (LMFT) specializing in individual, couples and marriage counseling in Minnesota. 

 

With over 5 years of experience as an individual, couples and family therapist, and as a graduate of Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, I am passionate about honoring both partners’ experiences and perspectives. I strive to maintain impartiality while helping couples find their way towards a passionate and loving relationship

Naomi

I love music, both playing and listening. I love to travel and try new things – from food to adventures like skydiving, zip-lining and running with the bulls (yes, you read that right)!

My therapeutic approach is non-anxious, non-judgmental and having unconditional positive regard for everyone in the room; I believe in meeting the client where they’re at and honoring all parts of the self, such as emotional, mental, physical and spiritual. I believe that through a healthy, trusting relationship between client(s) and therapist, great change can take place.
