The latest episode of the MTV show began with Bentley telling his mother Maci, 29, that his therapist asked him to give Ryan his business card.
Maci encouraged her son to seek counseling with Ryan, while Bentley admitted he was "nervous" to see his father.
Bentley later told Maci and her husband Taylor McKinney that Ryan said he would call the therapist, though Ryan seemed unhappy with his son's request when he spoke about it with Mackenzie, 25.
Reflecting on his conversation with Bentley, Ryan said: "He gave me the number to the counselor Maci had chosen, so he let me know that this was the one we had to use."
Mackenzie said she "thinks he's being manipulated" by Maci, while her husband agreed.
Ryan said: "I got to talk to him.
"I said, 'I don't know what's going on, bud. But I feel like you're getting lied to, buddy. We love you very much. We would love for it to get back to normal.'
"I said, 'This isn't what we want.' And you could just tell it was tearing him up."
Ryan then admitted he "doesn't trust the damn counselor that she has picked," continuing: "Just everything that she does is good for her. I don’t trust her. I don't trust anybody she picks."
The episode aired as the Teen Mom stars continue their nasty feud.
