Couples Counselor

Kristina Schasker, M.A., MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

I specialize in working with couples struggling with a wide range of issues. From problems with communication and feeling connected, to parenting, affair recovery and just learning not to take the relationship for granted anymore, therapy can make a big difference. Like any other living thing, a partnership is a dynamic, growing thing that needs attention and to be nurtured and cared for. Couples therapy is an effective way to learn how to identify and express your own needs at the same time hearing, understanding, and meeting your partners needs. I have helped many couples overcome seemingly impossible challenges and go on to build happy, healthy, more satisfying relationships that last!

Maren Gleason, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

I help couples who have become stuck in arguments that seem to repeat and rarely get resolved. Sometimes it can seem like the same argument happens over and over even though the topic might look different. Often partners don't feel that they are understood or heard. I help couples with understanding, seeing, and hearing their own and their partner's more vulnerable feelings. These feelings can quickly ignite into anger and frustration or have one person pull away in silence. This sets up a pattern that people get stuck in. However, understanding what is driving that pattern can help couples change and find the support, safety, and closeness they crave from their relationship.

Are you dating and having problems in communication and other areas? Getting counseling while you are in the dating phase can prevent you from developing unhealthy habits that keep you from moving to the next level in your relationship. Couple Counseling can help you learn those skills needed to enhance your relationship.

Dan Quinn, Psy.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

My work focuses on a combination of skills training in how happy couples talk and argue, and the creation of safety and opportunities to create "heart-to-heart" conversations to restore and revitalize intimacy in your relationship. It is these two approaches that are supported convincingly by a large body of research, and it requires a therapist who acts as coach and referee. I don't let couples fight their same old fights in my office - the whole point is to get past the same old arguments and have the deeper and more useful conversations that have been sidetracked.

Neal Winblad, MFT

Marriage, Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

One of my favorite subspecialties is working with couples. This comes out of my own experience of having been happily married for 35 years, and knowing that relationships are the crucible of transformation. Nothing in my life has returned more reward and more wisdom than the process of struggling along with my wife to figure out how to be in relationship with another human being. Relationships involve merging, separating, leading, following, and getting into a state of attunement. Most of us were not born knowing how to do these things. Couples therapy becomes an exciting exploration of these spiritual skills. After abandoning blame and shame we can actually be very happy together!

Esther Lerman, M.A., M.F.T.

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

Couples therapy can be intimidating to start. There's a lot of anxiety that comes up for people about things getting even worse or one person being labeled as the problem or, worse yet, that it will lead to breaking up. But I have treated a great many couples over 25 years and that is almost never what happens. Although, yes, the process is sometimes very painful, I never "take sides" and blame one person in the couple and usually the couple feels better after the session. I have seen people come in with problems that made them feel like enemies and after therapy they feel like friends and lovers again. Do call for couples therapy now and don't let the problems keep on getting worse.

Couples Counselor

Jayn Rajandran, LMFT, CGE, DTS, MA I/O Psychology

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Castro Valley, CA

I am a certified Gottman's educator with a lot of research that supports my work. I try to assist couples in ensuring that the partnership is fulfilled, supportive, filled with passion and joy. The negative aspects of a relationship can be avoided if you are willing to explore how the influences of your family of origin, your life experiences and circumstances, could play out over time in your relationship. I will teach you tools and skills that will help you move forward, break bad habits, communicate in a healthier and respectful way in all aspects of your relationship. Sometimes I work individually and sometimes I work in the dyad, depending on what is standing in the way.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings?
