Couples Counselor

Dennis Harris, MFT

MFT

Within Driving Distance of El Cajon, CA

Most partners in relationships wish their mate would hurt them less and help them more. My role is to coach couples to do just that. Whether recovering from an affair, overcoming domestic violence or just learning to stop squabbling and get along there is a short but essential list of attitudes and skills necessary to build and maintain a healthy and enjoyable relationship. There is very little in life that prepares us for being in a marriage but we can learn what it takes with some work and guidance.

Couples Counselor

Ronald Reichard, MA, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of El Cajon, CA

My approach to couples and marital therapy includes several components which are: relationship enhancement skills, communication and conflict resolution strategies, increased awareness of relationship needs and empathy development. It has been my expericence that when couples are committed to improving their relationship and apply the tools taught in therapy, they find that communication improves significantly and appear more motivated to meet the needs of their partner. As each person committs to meeting the needs of their partner it tends to generate good feelings and respectful behavior bewteen the partners, which can result in greater relatinship satisfaction.

Couples Counselor

Scott Wood, M.A.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of El Cajon, CA

Among human relationships, marriage can be a source of great joy and connection. Often over time, negative cycles and patterns of interaction can develop that create pain and disconnection in the relationship. Adult love relationships are about creating secure attachment and a connection that allows each partner to feel emotionally safe. Through the counseling process, I assist couples in identifying and overcoming negative cycles, healing from past hurts, and reconnecting emotionally. I also work with couples looking for healing from infidelity. Even very distressed couples can reconnect and restore trust and emotional security. I also provide pre-marital and enrichment counseling.

Couples Counselor

Fredric Seldin, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of El Cajon, CA

Long lasting relationships that are based on mutual love and respect do not develop automatically even though the couple may have initially come together based on a strong and intense romantic bond. Rather, long term relationship success requires that each partner develop enhanced communication skills that permit conflict resolution and cooperation in dealing with the inevitable stresses that couples have to face over the course of their relationship. In addition, each partner must be able to recognize his/her part in initiating and/or perpetuating conflict in the relationship.

Couples Counselor

Tami Chelew, MA, CSAT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist - LMFT #79759

Within Driving Distance of El Cajon, CA

I am an Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist (EFT) which is the most empirically validated and proven couples therapy to date - helping couples go from distress to a more secure, lasting love, which after a 2 year follow-up, couples report a happier and more fulfilling relationship. I help couples understand their painful disconnection that creates distance and frustration, learn to be more clear in their communication and needs, helping couples begin to heal and repair rifts to bring about a deeper felt sense of security within their relationship. I desire couples to experience with one another that they matter, that they are cared for, they are unconditionally loved by their partner.

Heather Bone, LMFT

Licensed Clinical Counselor

Being in a couple and sharing one's life with another person can be one of life's greatest joys and sometimes one's most difficult struggles. Being able to communicate to your partner in a way that they can hear your request without defensiveness, can be a challenge I would like to help with. We are all effected by our family of origin, which has shaped our world view and ablility to communicate. I have worked with couples from all walks of life and enjoy bridging their communication gaps. I can help you too!

Couples Counselor

Dr. Nikki Watkins, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of El Cajon, CA

The origin of the word "couple" comes from the idea of two things being "fastened" together or paired. In couples therapy, I take this origin into account when counseling because a couple has two people with their own thoughts, beliefs, and needs that are somehow trying to come together and function as one. I have found communication, trust, and respect to be three really important factors in a successful relationship so these are the areas I focus on in my practice. It is possible for two to become one - sometimes a little help from an outside professional is needed and I want to be that help for you.

Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of El Cajon, CA

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? Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com to learn how! Or call 877-606-6161. DR. FLEMING'S NEW RELATIONSHIP/COUPLES INTENSIVES. www.kevinflemingphd.com/marriage-couples-retreats.php
