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.

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.

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?

Jennifer Costanza, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of National City, CA

Whether you are seeking assistance in your relationship with your sister, brother, mother, father, spouse or child, I can help any couple to more effectively communicate with one another, express and get needs met, and support one another in a collaborative, loving way. Everyone wants to be known, but at the same time fears being known. Therapy can build trust and help you work together to resolve issues and create a deeper bond through better communication.

Dr. Nikki Watkins, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of National City, 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, thus 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; especially after the loss of a child. Allow me to walk this journey toward healing with you.

Scott Wood, M.A.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of National City, 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.

Fredric Seldin, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

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.

Donna Scott, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I have a passion (pun intended) for working with couples. Dating couples trying to see if they are a good fit. Engaged couples looking for tools to start their marriage right. Married couples who feel like they are living as roommates. Couples who have lost that "loving feeling" and long to get it back. No matter what the category, all couples have one thing in common. A desire for connection, love, and communication. It is my to desire to help you achieve it.

Couples Counselor

David Jacobs, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of National City, CA

Couples come to therapy when they have exhausted their own capacity to solve their issues. Often there is much history and bad feelings on both parts. Couples therapy can help each person see in action the patterns that keep them relating in the same frustrating ways. The therapist (an outsider) provides a function for the couple that they do not have and can over time make their own. My preference is to provide individual therapy to a member of the couple since each person must be able to see the reality of their own contribution to the problems in the relationship and also see their partner for who they are. This process of seeing themselves and their partner clearly is fundamental.
