Couples Counselor

Tom Danis, LPCC, M.ED

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Within Driving Distance of Los Angeles, CA

There are two things get in the way of a lasting, great relationship. First, couples often don’t know how to deal with the inevitable differences that come up between them. When two people in love see any given issue (money, sex, work, child rearing, etc.) from different perspectives they need to know how to engage rather than fight around them. Second, in spite of loving each other, they haven’t yet created a deep enough intimacy to help them stay connected even during the rough times. If this intimacy isn’t developed, resentments build and opportunities for closeness become less frequent. When you work with me as a couple, you learn to experience your differences in a way that brings you....

Gary Stollman, Ph.D.

Psychotherapist, Marriage Counselor, Professional Life Coach

260 S. Beverly Drive, Suite 300, Los Angeles, CA 90212

Problems you may be experiencing in your relationship do not occur overnight. It takes relationship neglect over time before significant problems develop. When you withhold feelings, especially feelings of hurt, the hurt soon turns into resentment. When resentful, neither partner can hear what is being said and you may then soon experience an "emotional deadening" where you and your partner feel as though you are more like roommates than soulmates. When the passion fades and the communication and connection fail, it's imperative that you seek counseling. Feel free to call my office for a free 15 minute phone consultation at 800-474-1445 or email me at Garydoctor@aol.com.

Richard A. Cohn. Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

566 So. San Vicente Blvd, Suite 101, Los Angeles, CA 90048

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

Ellen Klavan, MA, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

420 1/2 North Larchmont, Los Angeles, CA 90046

Couples seek therapy for all kinds of reasons--from affairs to sexual problems to fighting and frustration. Sometimes things are going well but the partners sense that their relationship could be even better. I work from the EFT Couples Therapy model, which works to strengthen the bonds that brought you into relationship in the first place. We'll also explore the personal issues that each partner brings to the relationship. Talking about these issues openly helps couples grow closer and builds intimacy. Gay and lesbian couples are welcome.

Couples Counselor

Hillary Goldsher, Psy.D, MBA

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Los Angeles, CA

Couple dynamics are complicated and thus require a multi-pronged approach. My goal is to focus on the improvement of intimacy,communication, and conflict/resolution. This is accomplished by not only understanding the strengths and deficits of the couples' current relationship patterns but by also coming to understand the individual experiences that each member of the couple brings to the couple dynamic. Each member of the couple has a wealth of experiences, feelings, behaviors and beliefs that were formed well before the couple was formed. Understanding the impact of those separate experiences as well as current couple dynamic creates space for understanding, recover, and healing.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

What do you hope for with your partner? In couples therapy, we improve communication, bridge differences, and promote change. People come to couples therapy at many stages of relationship: pre-marital counseling; navigating differences in time management; blending households and families; birth of a child; infidelity; divorce -- any time a couple is seeking to change behaviors that are causing pain. When a life stressor has begun to affect your partnership in an unwanted way, or if you are seeking to be heard differently by your partner, the skills you learn in couples therapy will create a more mutually satisfying relationship.

When couples wish to work through their relationship difficulties, or do premarital couples therapy, they will find my office to be a safe, nonjudmental, and encouraging space. You will colaborate with your spouse, and prioritize issues you'd like to discuss. You will explore your own ability for acceptance and tolerance of your spouse's behavior. We will work together on communication skills, and styles, we'll try to soften the dialogue. We'll learn about problem solving skills with which husband and wife are heard. If there are sexual problems, I have experience in treating sex addiction, internet pornography addiction, and the affect of extended families on your relationship.

Couples Counselor

Bruce Levine, Ph.D., ABPP

Board Certified Clinical Psychologist

Cedars-Sinai Medical Tower, 8631 West 3rd Street (suite 1100-E), Los Angeles, CA 90048

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.

Couples counseling is an amazing experience. Your relationship is my client and I will work closely with both of you to identify the relational dance you participate in, and how we can interrupt the negative patterns you engage in, and instead promote healthier ways of connecting and attaching. Couples therapy can be a really fun and pleasurable experience where you get to know more about your partner and also about your self. Couples therapy works in a stage process. I will be there along each step of the way helping to make sure that you guys are connecting. I will help to empower you both so that you may enhance and strengthen your most important relationship!

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?
