Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of San Bruno, 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?

Beverley Conrad, Ph.D

Licensed Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of San Bruno, CA

I have a 25 year speciality in couple counseling. I believe it is the treatment of choice for relationship problems which leave partners feeling helpless and hopeless. Change is achieved by clarifying perspectives and teaching new skills of communicating. Five to ten sessions of couple counseling is considered a standard amount to see movement.

Couples Counselor

Sean Faulkner, MFTi

Marriage and Family Therapist Intern

Within Driving Distance of San Bruno, CA

Couples typically do not seek counseling until there is a major break down in their relationship and hope to find a counselor to "fix" their problems. Resolving your issues is not my goal as a counselor--my goal is to help you and your partner learn and develop new ways to communicate which will allow you two to resolve your own issues together as a couple, both during and after therapy. I aim to help you and your partner develop long-term skills which you can use for years to come.

Joann Riggio, M.S., M.A. LMFT

LIcensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Bruno, CA

Do you feel that your relationship with your partner has become more difficult through time? Have the challenges of juggling the demands of work & child rearing responsibilities caused you to lose connection with one another? Do you ask yourself why can't my partner and I communicate effectively? The growing demands on couples and families in our success-driven society can result in the loss of effective communication & connection with each other. Utilizing techniques from Dr. John Gottman, & Dr. Sue Johnson's Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, I help couples heal, reconnect & reestablish their love relationship with a more compassion, and deeper understanding of one another.

Are you trapped in destructive cycles of anger and blame? Have you lost trust because of an affair? Are you avoiding your partner or feeling disengaged?

Couples Counselor

Elizabeth Hayes, Psy.D, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Bruno, CA

I work with couples that are struggling to connect emotionally, have issues with communication, and want to create new relational dynamics that increase their connection. My approach is warm and collaborative and I work hard to carefully listen to each person to provide the therapeutic interventions necessary to increase understanding, communication, mutual interest, curiosity, and awareness. In my experience couples enter treatment with varying degrees of ambivalence and desire for change. I work hard to create a safe environment to explore each persons concerns and desires so we can better collaborate towards working together to generate movement and change.

I thoroughly enjoy aiding couples in their ability to communicate with one another so they can fully enjoy the potential of their marriage/relationship. Facilitating deeper understanding in your personal feelings and workings and those of your partner, enable you as a couple to grow closer & stronger. It builds capacity to face adversity, for example past trauma.

Cheryl Deaner, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Bruno, CA

Couples come together through great love but often, this love can be slowly lost in the day-to-day work of living busy lives and taking each other for granted. Then when a crisis hits a couple realizes just how far they have drifted from each other. Just think if it this way. If you had a beautiful new car but never took care of it, never changed it's oil or brought it in for a tune up, how long would that car last? Couples often neglect obvious problems in their relationships because they just don't think to look under the hood. Honest and safe communication is the first step to finding your way back to each other. I any of this rings true for you, please contact me today.

Couples Counselor

Dietmar Brinkmann, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Bruno, CA

Most couples come to therapy because they find it hard to communicate with each other. They want to resolve endless fights and avoid getting caught in fruitless arguments. When feelings are raw it can be so hard to feel close and end the negative cycle of blame and defensive withdrawal. In couple therapy, I help you feel safe to express yourself. You and your partner will learn to listen to each other with compassion and grow a shared understanding of what makes your relationship work. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy, an approach proven by extensive research to strengthen the emotional bond that is the heart of every relationship.

Couples Counselor

Bryan Newman, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Bruno, CA

I approach couples counseling from a collaborative stance that offers tangible results from the first session. My work empowers couples in distress to deeply understand and overcome the painful cycles of interaction between partners, as well as to address and heal these cycles' root causes. From there I help couples nurture and develop ever greater degrees of trust, intimacy and love between each other. I am passionate about my work with couples and believe deeply in the healing power of effective therapy.
