Couples Counselor

René Bairos, RCC, MA Counselling Psychology, BA

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

4320 Stevens Creek Boulvard, Suite 220, San Jose, CA 95129

Couples counseling is not limited to married people. "Coupling" is a subjective term and can includes partners, families, and singles. Bring the relationship issues you are concerned about to the therapy session, together, we can work to assist you in gaining perspective, assess the strengths and weaknesses, and learn various tools to equip you with better communication. Taking a look at your part in contributing both positive and negative to the relationship can benefit you greatly.

It is said that our greatest fears and vulnerabilities show up in relationship. I assist partners in communicating more authentically and attempt to assist the couple to reduce their barriers by helping each partner voice fears, longings, hurts, and wants. Ultimately, I try to help couples have a more harmonious, loving, and fulfilling connection.

Couples Counselor

Randi Fredricks, Ph.D., LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

1174 Lincoln Ave #6, San Jose, CA 95125

I view couples therapy as extremely collaborative, and I use a strong team approach to get quick results. I am very involved in the session at all times and will honestly communicate to you what I see, feel and think. I begin by establishing a vision for the relationship, which incorporates the ideals of both members. My office becomes a safe haven, where problems can be discussed without fear of pain, judgment or retribution. Our consultation time is used as a living laboratory, a place where we can explore different styles, interventions and techniques. These can be used to change hurtful and destructive patterns in the relationship and create a stronger, more open connection.

Couples Counselor

Rachel Kane-Cooley, MA, LMFT, LPCC

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Jose, CA

Whether you have been together a lifetime, just starting out, or somewhere in between, therapy can provide a safe, nurturing environment for exploring needs and any past pain. Successful relationships include effective communication, validation, and empathy. By learning simple communication skills in therapy and practicing them outside of therapy, trust and fulfillment can deepen. If you're trying to move past something painful, therapy can also help expedite the healing process.

Couples Counselor

Jayn Rajandran, LMFT, CGE, DTS, MA I/O Psychology

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Jose, CA

I am a certified Gottman's educator with a lot of research that supports my work. I try to assist couples in ensuring that the partnership is fulfilled, supportive, filled with passion and joy. The negative aspects of a relationship can be avoided if you are willing to explore how the influences of your family of origin, your life experiences and circumstances, could play out over time in your relationship. I will teach you tools and skills that will help you move forward, break bad habits, communicate in a healthier and respectful way in all aspects of your relationship. Sometimes I work individually and sometimes I work in the dyad, depending on what is standing in the way.

The benefit of improved relating is truly remarkable !! I emphasize that couple’s work is so much more than communication. It is really about knowing and learning about yourself and being able to share this with another person. Conflicts are inevitable and will be as long as you are in the relationship, and yet through conflicts and differences is where you grow as an individual and couple. I have my own program for couple’s work called Relationship Skills – 5 A’s – that A’s stand for Attitude, Awareness, Acknowledgement, Admitting (your part of the problem), and Assertiveness. The 5 A’s are the foundation for couple’s work. Generally everyone wants to know how to measure progress, and you can by your own and other’s assessment of the 5 A’s.

Couples Counselor

Robin Bates-Pualuan, MS, LMFT, LPCC

Marriage & Family Therapist, Professional Clinical Counselor

Within Driving Distance of San Jose, CA

Partnership has the potential to be incredibly rewarding, teaching us about ourselves through loving another. Most of us make a large emotional investment in our relationships. Because of this, partnership also has the potential to cause a huge amount of distress when it’s not working. Sometimes a struggling partnership is full of conflict and arguments, and sometimes partners just drift apart until they feel like roommates instead of lovers. Successful partnerships need respect and a core of friendship. If you and your partner are no longer friends, or you never were, I can provide you with tools to work toward a closer connection.

Couples Counselor

Mary-Stone Bowers, MA, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Jose, CA

Couples, partnerships, marriage. All of these can suffer from the dynamics of conflict or avoidance that are causing pain and threatening the health of the relationship. It is often easier to express and explore the communication dynamics in the presence of a therapist who can help understand the critical cycles and bitter exchanges. Replacing these old dynamics with sharing of warmth and care bring about new ways of being in the relationship, offering hope, closeness and security.

Couples Counselor

Verna Nelson, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Jose, CA

Couples often find that their hopes and expectations for finding that special person who will "make them happy" are unrealistic and a burden to an otherwise very successful relationship. I find that when you learn to listen to your partner and appreciate who they are, and risk telling them who you are and how you feel, your love will be on solid ground. I will help you focus on what you need to feel loving and loveable, and to share that with your partner.

Couples Counselor

Aurianne Dorsay, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

1302 Lincoln Ave., Ste. 205, San Jose, CA 95125

I work with couples who are in a host of stages of relationship and wanting to improve their communication and their harmony in relationship. In some cases, I work with married couples around increasing passion and decreasing conflict; with others, I help after a betrayal or one of the many issues that being in a couple can present. Most important, I provide a safe space for couples to know themselves both individually and in the context of their unique couplehood.

Couples Counselor

Janet Akyol, LMFT, CSAT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

4950 Hamilton Ave, Suite 102, San Jose, CA 95130

What happens after commitment? Often the misunderstandings, miscommunications, power struggles, life transitions, personal histories, and the stresses of daily living, all work together to erode the fun, connection and good will a couple started out with. Believe it or not, this is common, quite normal and a developmental process relationships go through. Each couple is unique and each traverses this difficult time in their own way. For some, the transition may be short-lived and only moderately disruptive, for many others it can be devastating, leading couples to want out. I provide couples with the tools they need to move through the pain, reconnect and move into a renewed coupleship

Couples Counselor

Jason Esswein, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

San Jose, CA 95120

Couples counseling is helpful when two individuals want to deepen their connection (even when things in their relationship are "fine") as well as to help resolve conflicts that have not been addressed or have not been successfully addressed in the past. Top concerns usally involve money, parenting, sex, and in-laws. Improving general communication and one's ability to manage their feelings help to resolve the issues above with love, respect, and efficiency.

Couples Counselor

Doreen Maxwell MFT and Associates Experiential Psychotherapy, MFT, CHT

Marriage & Family Therapists, Certified Hakomi Psychotherapy

Within Driving Distance of San Jose, CA

A healthy couple’s relationship emerges from a process of reflection and inquiry. It requires both people to speak from the heart about what really matters to each. If you find yourself in a difficult cycle of hurtful interactions, I can help you get to this heart-full and constructive place. It is very useful to slow things down in a session, discovering the moments in interaction, verbal or non-verbal, that trigger an automatic reaction in the other. I may find a key phrase or a movement that we will re-enact in mindfulness to study the effect on each partner. Bringing awareness to these often unconscious triggers and responses helps you get to what is needed for yourself and the other.

Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

San Jose, CA 95111

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?
