Couples Counselor

Rakefet Benderly, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of San Diego, CA

Effective couples therapy can be done with only one person of the couple in the therapy room. Many individuals in relationships have issues they are not ready to discuss in front of their partner for various reasons. They want to work with a therapist to truly understand their thoughts, feelings and dilemmas with regard to their relationship in a private, supportive setting. As a clinical psychologist with over 20 years experience, I have helped many couples in this treatment format. How it works is that couples are in a relationship dynamic. When one person shifts perspective and gains new tools, the relationship dynamic changes. I can help you. Call today.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Couples therapy involves working with partners who are in a committed relationship. Individuals attend couples therapy to learn how to work through their differences, communicate better, problem-solve challenges in the relationship, work through parenting differences, improve their intimacy or their overall satisfaction with the relationship. Couples therapy involves assessing the strengths and weaknesses in the relationship, formulating goals and working diligently toward attaining those goals to establish and maintain healthy, loving and exciting romantic relationships.

Tami Chelew, MA, CSAT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist - LMFT #79759

10065 Old Grove Rd Ste 102, San Diego, CA 92131

I am an Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist (EFT) which is the most empirically validated and proven couples therapy to date - helping couples go from distress to a more secure, lasting love, which after a 2 year follow-up, couples report a happier and more fulfilling relationship. I help couples understand their painful disconnection that creates distance and frustration, learn to be more clear in their communication and needs, helping couples begin to heal and repair rifts to bring about a deeper felt sense of security within their relationship. I desire couples to experience with one another that they matter, that they are cared for, they are unconditionally loved by their partner.

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?

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.

Couples Counselor

Jill Silverman, LCSW

Licensed Psychotherapist

12625 High Bluff Drive, Suite 215, San Diego, CA 92130

I specialize in couples, marriage and relationship counseling as well as issues related to infidelity. Most couples find it helpful to begin by coming in for their own individual session first and then coming in as a couple after that. In hearing each person's complete perspective, I am able to gain a better understanding of where you are coming from so that I may facilitate communication. Its normal to be able to talk a little bit more in depth when you are alone, so I gain much more information about how I can help. Couples are often relieved to hear that they can begin counseling this way.

Couples Counselor

Scott Wood, M.A.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

2333 Camino del Rio S., Ste 250, San Diego, 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.

Couples Counselor

Joanne Wendt, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of San Diego, CA

Dr. Wendt's knowledge of various interactional relationship styles has helped many couples learn how to develop a sense of caring and emotional intimacy for each other that begins with friendship. Many relationships have not lead to commitment and/or marriage because of issues such as fear of intimacy, fear of losing freedom or fear of being alone that manifests itself in neediness. Dr. Wendt teaches the art of maintaining a sense of self and individual empowerment while sharing one's life with another. Learning how to find happiness within oneself rather than depending on someone else to "make oneself whole" is a concept that fuels Dr. Wendt's approach to counseling couples.

Heather Bone, LMFT

Licensed Clinical Counselor

5752 Oberlin Dr. #225, San Diego, CA 92121

Being in a couple and sharing one's life with another person can be one of life's greatest joys and sometimes one's most difficult struggles. Being able to communicate to your partner in a way that they can hear your request without defensiveness, can be a challenge I would like to help with. We are all effected by our family of origin, which has shaped our world view and ablility to communicate. I have worked with couples from all walks of life and enjoy bridging their communication gaps. I can help you too!

Couples Counselor

Dr. Nikki Watkins, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

4080 Centre Street, Suite 202, San Diego, CA 92103

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.

Marriage and Family Therapy Intern

2121 5th Ave, San Diego, CA 92101

It is typically those closest to us that cause the most pain and hurt. As a couple, seeking reconciliation can be very difficult. But I can help! Reconciling is done by identifying and changing unhealthy communication patterns, while uncovering and mending underlying hurt. When couples are able to identify their patterns of hurt, change is possible. Instead of running away from each other, you can turn towards each other again. Healing is possible and I hope to walk alongside your relationship!

Couples Counselor

Fredric Seldin, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

7840 Mission Center Court, Suite 102, San Diego, CA 92108

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.
