Couples counseling is not just for those who are married. Couples include those living together or apart, those in same sex relationships, or any two individuals who would like to work on making their relationship healthier. Couples counseling can enhance an already good relationship and can create healthier communication and intimacy in those relationships who are struggling.

Couples Counselor

Terence Cochran, Ph.D., MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist, Psychoanalyst

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

I have been helping couples heal their relationships for more than 29 years. Effective therapy includes developing a clear understanding of the different family "cultures" couples have been raised in, and a clear perspective of how early hurts and pain can be re-triggered by the current marital or couple relationship. Communication skills are essential for working through chronic or immediate pain a couple is experiencing together--and empathy for the each other's perspective is at the heart of those skills. It is also essential to know when a relationship has the potential to open up and grow, and when development together is no longer currently possible due to abuse or excessive hostility

Marriage counseling can be the best thing you can do for your relationship, whether you’re having marriage problems or not. Either way, the skills learned in marriage counseling can help you find happiness and satisfaction with your spouse.

The purpose of couples therapy is to restore an enhanced level of functioning in couples who experience relationship distress. This distress can result in poor communication skills, incompatibility, or a broad spectrum of psychological disorders that include domestic violence, alcoholism, depression, anxiety or other issues. You should be advised that honesty, providing all necessary information, cooperation, keeping appointments on time, and a sincere desire for change and improvement are all imperative to increase your chances of a successful outcome. Additionally, a willingness to work "towards" and "with" the process of treatment is essential.

Couples Counselor

Trish Phillips, PsyD, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

A couple that is seeking counseling is making an unspoken statement that their relationship is very important to them. It can be painful and uncomfortable to try to let down our walls with someone we love who has hurt us, doesn't listen or see us anymore, or has cheated on us. Maybe you just lost your way in the relationship and have drifted apart. Whatever your situation, I can help both partners learn to listen and communicate clearly as well as pin point areas in the relationship that may need some work.

The love you once felt for each other when you met and decided to live together is still there. Love appears to erode and even disappear as we take our relationship for granted. We can become Insensitive, lazy, stop being involved, intimate or concerned and understanding. These disconnections lead to more and more distance over time. Arguing or indifference can become a way of life. Along with a lack of intimacy, sex,sharing of interests and even simple communication. This disconnect in the relationship can lead to abuse, betrayal, infidelity, separation and divorce. in Couples Counseling we will identify the issues, set goals and activities to reconnect with the love that is still there.

I offer a unique marriage counseling program designed to get to know your partner on a deeper level and get beyond old hurts. Homework is given weekly. A professional working with couples will help first to clarify the main issue brought to the first session. Usually there is much more going on between two people, and a therapist will help the two dig alittle deeper. Maybe old anger is a roadblock....or resentments.

Couples Counselor

Amie Lowery-Luyties, MFT, PPS, MS

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

The main thing I notice couples coming in for is to work on trust issues, communication problems, and lack of intimacy within the relationship. This can manifest into anger, affairs, shutting down, and a number of other behaviors. I work with couples FIRST on what does work, so that they can build upon skills they already possess within their relationship. 2: Teaching basic listening skills so that partners feel heard. 3: Teaching the couples how to communicate without attacking. 4: implementing those skills at home. Therapy is much more complex than this, and there are many more aspects of communication, but building strengths is very important to relationship success.

We work with couples who are struggling in their relationship because of problems that may include finances, communication, sex, kids, in-laws, abuse, boundaries, respect, roles, job stress, and infidelity.

Are your arguments repetitive and futile? I bring a neutral third part presence into couples that can help defuse arguments and bring love back into the relationship. I believe most couple's struggles are neither party's fault, but rather the end result of negative patterns of interaction that can be reversed with the help of a (friendly) therapist. Finding the right person to help you is a lot to do with chemistry. Please call me at (949) 288-3123 if you have any questions at all. I want your therapy journey to be as successful as possible.

Sue Shepard, MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

Couples have come to see me for a variety of reasons throughout the years, but I find that no matter what the presenting problem may be, being able to effectively communicate with each other is vital to restoring the relationship. Often couples have a completely different style of relating to one another and resolving conflict. I work with couples to better understand their partner and I help each person to communicate in a way that they can finally be heard. It doesn’t matter what you are fighting about if the other person can’t hear what you are saying. Call 714-751-0888 so I can help you express yourself more effectively so you can stop the fighting and start the healing process.

Couples Counselor

Andrea Schoon, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

Being in a relationship is a complicated thing. Often people do not realize the magnitude the past impacts our ability to love, to handle conflict, to accurately communicate. Until you understand what each of you is bringing to the table, you are truly handicaped. Our early role models and messages about love and the opposite sex can create issues in our relationships. Unresolved issues from previous loves can create walls which make authentic love difficult. Helping to unlock the "gridlock" and get you moving again in a healthy direction is my goal. Don't wait for things to "magically" get better. Invest in your relationship and enjoy it once again.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, 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?

Kristi Starkey, MS, MFT, #52051

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

I work from an emotionally focused attachment theory (EFT) when working with couples in Mission Viejo, CA. Research shows that humans are hardwired for a strong emotional bond. When a couple has relationship problems they experience an emotional disconnection with their partner at key moments. This leads to emotional reactions involving anger and criticism. I will work with you as a couple to help overcome those negative cycles and to re-establish your connection and strengthen your emotional bond. Through the exploration of emotions, reactions, inter-relations, and behaviors, you will be able to identify your pattern in relationship.

Marriage and Family Therapists, Psychotherapy

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

I have worked with hundred's of couples over the last 20 years. Each couple is unique in their own right which means there is no one way to "fix" a problem. Our deepest longings and hopes emerge in a couples relationship. Oftentimes we are working out unmet needs and hopes carried forward from our early family relationships to our present couple relationship. Problems become increasingly complex and difficult to overcome when we don't know what these issues are all about. Couples remain stuck in conflict not because of what they know, but what they don't know or can't recognize. The work in therapy is to help couples recognize unhealthy patterns of relating and introduce novelty.

Couple's counseling is my favorite kind of therapy. There's always so much energy in the room. Most couples are looking for communication skills. I teach that and I also teach what to do when a discussion turns into an argument. I also teach that there is no right or wrong, just differences. You'll learn to how accept those differences. Do you want to be happy or right? Most couples come in when they are about to end the relationship. They come to give it one last try so they know they've done all they could before they give up, especially when there are children involved. Is it time to save your relationship?

Couples Counselor

Mary Ann Aronsohn, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I believe couples naturally select partners who will eventually restimulate old hurts. If couples can recognize this, then conflict becomes an opportunity for healing and growth. My job in working with couples is to help them identify these old hurts and work together with one another to understand and provide compassion for one another as they do this work. Emotional intimacy is the natural outcome of this powerful work.

Most relationships can be radically changed and improved with just a few simple insights. I work with couple to build closeness and trust that may have eroded over time. Time and time again, I have seen couples, through therapy, come to recapture the love, joy and appreciation they once had for each other and get closer than they ever imagined possible. Together, the three of us, will work to improve communication and bring light to unconscious patterns, beliefs and thoughts that emerged from past relationships (familial and otherwise). Through increased insight and understanding it is absolutely possible to have a relationship filled with intimacy, closeness, and increased satisfaction.

Many people can benefit from couples therapy sessions, even if their relationships do not have obvious problems. People often wait until very late in the game before seeking help, often times after one or both have already decided to end the relationship. Seeking the help of a psychologist can strengthen the behavioral and emotional bonds that keep couples together. Couples therapy changes the way that couples behave with each other. Sessions focus on improving interactions and building resilience. By focusing on the “Three C’s” of intimacy (closeness, communication, and commitment), partners learn how to achieve intimacy with their romantic partners rather than isolation

“Unlatch” from Negative Emotions and Behaviors Some couples make the assumption that serious and persistent conflicts and differences will get resolved on their own. Time can heal, but it also helps if you are willing to work on improving your relationship. Relationship issues can be quite complex and it is not just a matter of learning how to “communicate” nice thoughts to one another. My role as a counselor is to identify and track the emotional experience of each person and to support the couple as they learn to engage in a more productive way so that each feels more heard, considered, respected and acknowledged.

I specialize in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), a a highly effective method for healing relationships. Research has shown that 70-75% of couples who participate in EFT become closer and more intimate in their relationship, and 90% show significant improvements. As a trained EFT therapist, I am more interested in exploring the patterns and cycles that you get stuck in when facing conflict. How do you handle conflict? Do you become angry and lash out with your words, or do you shut down and tune out (or leave). How does your partner respond to you during these times? It is the dance between you that I am interested in exploring. Once we identify the dance, then we can work at change.

Relationships are the stuff of life and wise persons will attend carefully to their intimate, committed relationship. Most couples are not aware of the sources of conflict and how these sources impact their relationships. Most couples do not understand how their coping habits, learned the child and teen years, will actually interfere with success in their love relationship. Couples all need to learn new and better ways to cope with relationships pain as their old coping habits will not work -- they will end up unintentionally hurting their partner.

According to a leading couple's therapist, David Schnarch, differentiation is a crucial aspect of intimacy for couples. My approach to couples therapy emphasizes the importance of differentiation in couple relationships. I believe that a healthy couple is one where individuals can share deeply personal parts of their selves with their partner, while also being secure enough to handle however their partner responds. This approach also incorporates exploration of attachment style and intergenerational relationships. I also incorporate aspects of Gottman therapy when treating couples and helping them to enhance intimacy and differentiation.

Couples initiate their relationship to satisfy each member's desire to be loved, connected, respected and enjoyed. In all relationships, life's demands impede on that fun. Rekindling those good feelings, mutual enjoyment, and respect becomes our therapy work. Sometimes, communication is more hurtful than constructive. Other times, you have become strangers instead of best friends. Sexual pleasures become disappointments. Parenting becomes distracting instead of successful teamwork. Money becomes a dispute, crippling a couples pleasures and goals. With so few couples succeeding in love and compatibility, couples counseling becomes a tool to re-ignite what's missing.

Couples relationships can be both exciting and fulfilling, as well as frustrating and confusing at times for everyone. Couples get stuck in ruts or negative patterns, that they keep repeating, and don't know how to get out of. They keep wondering why it's not working for them. In couples therapy , it is important for the therapist to be able to listen well to both parties, and provide information and skills, that can be utilized back at home, to change those negative patterns they have been stuck in. Frequently, it doesn't take very many sessions to get things going in a much more positive direction!

Being in a relationship is a complicated thing. Often people do not realize the magnitude the past impacts our ability to love, to handle conflict, to accurately communicate. Until you understand what each of you is bringing to the table, you are truly handicaped. Our early role models and messages about love and the opposite sex can create issues in our relationships. Unresolved issues from previous loves can create walls which make authentic love difficult. Helping to unlock the "gridlock" and get you moving again in a healthy direction is my goal. Don't wait for things to "magically" get better. Invest in your relationship and enjoy it once again.

When couples seek psychotherapy, they are fighting because they do not feel loved but instead are feeling rejected, abaondoned or alone. People also are not feeling accepted but instead are feeling judged, criticized, or blamed for who they are. Couples will benefit from my approach as I help people learn how to work through hurt, anger and blame, love and forgiveness, and boundaires and acceptance. When you feel loved and accepted, you will benefit from wanting to work with one another to solve relationship problems and find success in being a couple.

Seeking the help of a psychologist can strengthen the behavioral and emotional bonds that keep couples together. Couples therapy changes the way that couples behave with each other.

The benefits of Couple's Therapy can include an improvement in the relationship that saves it from stagnating or ending. But sometimes the couple benefits most by having a neutral, empathic environment in which to figure out that what they really want to do is break up, in the most amicable way possible. Whatever the conscious and unconscious goals of the client couple, these can be met given sufficient courage and the willingness to speak truthfully.

As a couple certified in couples therapy, we understand betrayal, abandonment, feeling unappreciated, ignored, misunderstood, and having the same repeated fight. We know that troubles with family, finances, and substance use can strain even the healthiest of relationships. Our work as co-therapists in the room together brings balance and fairness so you can move through the rupture and into repair. We offer unique insight into how you can manage each other and life's challenges. Can you imagine feeling connected, making mutual agreements, experiencing intimacy and getting what you need from your partner without arguing over who is right? We can help.

Couples Counselor

Kaitlin Dull, LMSW, ASW

Registered Associate Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

The main complaint that I hear when working with couples is that each partner often feels unheard and maybe struggling to get what they are needing from the relationship. In couples work we will collaborate together to cultivate a deeper understanding of each partner’s needs and develop the communication skills to lead with empathy and get each person’s needs heard and addressed more effectively. I will help you to slow down when communicating, manage stressors and conflicts, and assist you in strengthening your relationship. If it's decided that separation best meets your needs, I will assist you in doing so amicably with care for one another and the relationship you've shared.

Couple counseling prior to engagement or marriage is an important process to engage that can insure that differences and disagreements can be amicably resolved through learning effective listening/ communication skills. I offer couples, pre-marital or married the opportunity to fully understand themselves and through that understanding to be a more effective partner.

Couples Counselor

Bruce Levine, Ph.D., ABPP

Board Certified Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of La Mirada, CA

Dr. Levine is a clinical psychologist, not simply a "marriage counselor." He often works with couples whose difficulties involve such problems as disagreements about dealing with relatives, children and friends as well as arguments over money, sex and unreasonable expectations. His approach is relaxed and non-confrontational, within the framework of what is known as "cognitive couples therapy." The goal is to reduce unrealistic demands and help with acceptance of the limitations of being human within the context of a close interpersonal relationship. You will find Dr. Levine to be fair, open-minded and even-handed in working with the couples he sees. He will answer the phone personally.

Relationships are so important to our wellbeing, but can also be a stressor and challenge when problems arise between the couple. Therapy can help clients understand each other better and become more able to share their perspective and hear their partner's. In the process of therapy, couples can become more vulnerable, which often can lead to more closeness.

As a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist, I have done worked with many couples. In an Imago Couples Therapy session you and your partner will learn effective communication tools to break through relationship issues such as attack and defend power struggles that so many couples suffer from. The main tool is called “mirroring,” in which you actively listen, reflect and empathize with each other’s experience. Once a place of safety is created around any given conflict, a couple is generally able to move past the power struggle and into conscious problem solving—as well as greater appreciation, care, and love for each other. The couples counseling is done in an environment of safety, care, and respect for each partner. Because of the safe structure...(view profile to read more)
