Every relationship is unique and has different challenges. I treat the relationship as the client and work towards making that "client" healthy and able to thrive. I work with all types of couples including trans* couples and same sex couples. Working to make the relationship healthy, often requires work for each member of the relationship as each brings a lot to the relationship. A good relationship can be the rock when you hit hard times and be the inspiration to build a wonderful future. Call now to start strengthening your relationship!

Couples Counselor

Joe Borders, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Elk Grove, CA

When working with couples, I take a very attachment based approach. We all seek to feel loved, supported, and secure in our relationships. Couples develop problems when something happens to damage this or threatens to damage this. Often times couples get into negative cycles or have been hurt by each other in the past and so come to expect to be hurt by one another. When working with couples it is my job to help each individual express their underlying emotions, fears, and insecurities, while also helping to grow empathy for one another. This ultimately helps couples to understand how their negative interactions are mostly the result of fear of getting hurt or abandoned.

Every marriage has its ups and downs. In fact, it is not the absence of conflict that makes a difference, it is how you manage conflict when it does arise that determines whether a marriage will survive. Successful couples have learned HOW to manage their conflicts in a way that honors the needs of both partners.

Couples may they be in a dating relationship, living together, engaged to marry, married, in business together, separating, divorcing, fighting over children, property, alimony or visitation, are often confronted with a breakdown in communication and an inability to resolve conflicts. Couple counseling aims to reveal the disconnect within a couple that often once had the ability to connect and function in harmony. Couples can quickly get off track with one another and need skilled guidance to help them learn to resolve conflicts, once again listen and communicate effectively as well as to be able to disagree without forcing the relationship to end.

Couples Counselor

Deborah Cohen, MFT, MPH,CHT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Elk Grove, CA

I use a combination of tried and true couples communication techniques to help couples create and build effective communication into their relationship. I also spend time on exploring sexual compatability and communication, when the couple wants their sexual lintimacy enhanced. IF there is lack of desire or an imbalance of desires, we address the roots of this.With couples who come for pre-marital counseling, we focus on communication skills and on common needs and wants the couple have for their impending marriage and family unit. We also look at any red flags that are showing up in the relationship.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

It can happen to any of us...everyday stressors we bring home to get taken out on the wrong person - - the one person who means more to us than anything. It leaves you both feeling awful. Maybe you are not getting enough attention, conversation, physical intimacy. The focus of relationship counseling is to change the negative path to a positive one: learn to listen to each other, support each others needs and goals, be willing to compromise, make family and relationship decisions together, stop keeping score, reconnect, relax, and enjoy each other If you reading this, you have already begun to move forward. Please call me so I can help you work through your issues and reconnect.

Couples Counselor

Jozeffa Greer, MFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Elk Grove, CA

Nothing is more challenging than relationships. And nothing means more to you. All of us are hard-wired to be in relationship with others, to care for others and to be cared for. But then what do you do when differences lead to conflicts that turn into never-ending battles, fighting the same fight over and over without resolution? Or when the agreement to disagree only leads to resentments that are never addressed at all? I would like to help you remember your strengths that brought you together in the first place, feel relief as you share what is important to you, and appreciate each other's differences, perhaps an initial attraction, and which can ultimately be a strength.

Michael Thaden, MS, LMFT, ATR-BC, CHT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Elk Grove, CA

The “mechanics” of healthy healing relationships is often easier said than done. We all need a valuing mirror to validate our core experience, and this is where the healing work of therapy comes in. I emphasize a valuing approach to each person’s experience as a foundation for assisting couples in strengthening the “mechanics” of what we know facilitates healthy satisfying relationships. I am repeatedly impressed to the power of Compassion for supercharging the many brilliant tools made available to us by the likes of Harville Hendrix, John Gottman to get relationships back on track to promote the healing and growth are meant to fulfill in our personal and interpersonal relationships.

Ameshia Arthur, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of Elk Grove, CA

Being in a committed relationship can be very isolating. One often puts a significant amount of time in her/his partner. In addition many people keep relationship matters confidential. The difficult part is what does one do when facing relationship challenges and are in need of guidance? Professional therapy for one, both, or all parties in the relationship can increase clarity, confidence, and intimacy, and facilitate a resolution to long standing contentions.
