Dr. Carol Francis, Psy.D., MFT, CHypT,

Clinical Psychologist, Marriage, Family & Child, Hypnosis

Torrance and RPV office accessible to all South Bay at 3655 Torrance BLvd, Third Floor Torrance, CA 90503, San Pedro, CA 90731

Couples initiate their relationship to satisfy each member's desire to be loved, connected, respected and enjoyed. In all relationships, life's demands impede on that fun. Rekindling those good feelings, mutual enjoyment, and respect becomes our therapy work. Sometimes, communication is more hurtful than constructive. Other times, you have become strangers instead of best friends. Sexual pleasures become disappointments. Parenting becomes distracting instead of successful teamwork. Money becomes a dispute, crippling a couples pleasures and goals. With so few couples succeeding in love and compatibility, couples counseling becomes a tool to re-ignite what's missing.

Couples Counselor

Betsy Walli, MS, PhD

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist 85860

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, CA

As an EFT therapist, I can help you and your partner to reconnect, escape from the repetitive cycles that keep you distant from each other, make sense of your emotions, improve the way you handle stress and conflict, and restore trust and safety with each other. There is no bad guy in your relationship. I'll help you see how your feelings and behaviors make perfect sense - and work with you both to create new, positive cycles that draw you closer together. EFT is very well supported by research showing that it significantly improves over 86% of distressed relationships, and importantly, that those benefits are still present two or three years after therapy is over.

Couples Counselor

Amie Lowery-Luyties, MFT, PPS, MS

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, CA

The main thing I notice couples coming in for is to work on trust issues, communication problems, and lack of intimacy within the relationship. This can manifest into anger, affairs, shutting down, and a number of other behaviors. I work with couples FIRST on what does work, so that they can build upon skills they already possess within their relationship. 2: Teaching basic listening skills so that partners feel heard. 3: Teaching the couples how to communicate without attacking. 4: implementing those skills at home. Therapy is much more complex than this, and there are many more aspects of communication, but building strengths is very important to relationship success.

The love you once felt for each other when you met and decided to live together is still there. Love appears to erode and even disappear as we take our relationship for granted. We can become Insensitive, lazy, stop being involved, intimate or concerned and understanding. These disconnections lead to more and more distance over time. Arguing or indifference can become a way of life. Along with a lack of intimacy, sex,sharing of interests and even simple communication. This disconnect in the relationship can lead to abuse, betrayal, infidelity, separation and divorce. in Couples Counseling we will identify the issues, set goals and activities to reconnect with the love that is still there.

Living happily in your relationship. This is what all couples want. So why is it so difficult to achieve? We start out with high hopes for a happy life.

Forming and maintaining a rewarding relationship with another person is one of life's greatest challenges. It takes much more than just the feeling of "being in love". Most of us grow up with very little knowlege about how to sustain the closeness we all desire. I help people discover and develop the insights and skills needed, not only to choose the right person, but to know themselves well enough to be able to interact with that person in a way that sustains love while facing and making good choices based on life's practical realities.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, CA

Couples have come to see me for a variety of reasons throughout the years, but I find that no matter what the presenting problem may be, being able to effectively communicate with each other is vital to restoring the relationship. Often couples have a completely different style of relating to one another and resolving conflict. I work with couples to better understand their partner and I help each person to communicate in a way that they can finally be heard. It doesn’t matter what you are fighting about if the other person can’t hear what you are saying. Call 714-751-0888 so I can help you express yourself more effectively so you can stop the fighting and start the healing process.

Couples Counselor

Andrea Schoon, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, CA

Being in a relationship is a complicated thing. Often people do not realize the magnitude the past impacts our ability to love, to handle conflict, to accurately communicate. Until you understand what each of you is bringing to the table, you are truly handicaped. Our early role models and messages about love and the opposite sex can create issues in our relationships. Unresolved issues from previous loves can create walls which make authentic love difficult. Helping to unlock the "gridlock" and get you moving again in a healthy direction is my goal. Don't wait for things to "magically" get better. Invest in your relationship and enjoy it once again.

Couples Counselor

Gary Stollman, Ph.D.

Psychotherapist, Marriage Counselor, Professional Life Coach

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, CA

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.

A significant and ongoing relationship is hugely rewarding and worth the time and right effort. When a relationship is going poorly it can a lonely and miserable. I help couples feel safe enough to be open, and authentic. Being willing to share their experience of the relationship and deal with what is true for each person( which may be the same or may be different) is the way through difficulties. For there to be a connection there needs to be two. When someone is going along to get along or dominating/controlling the outcome of an interaction, or wanting the other person to be like they are couples get stuck. I help clients identify hurtful patterns and learn new ways of relating.

Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, 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? Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com to learn how! Or call 877-606-6161. DR. FLEMING'S NEW RELATIONSHIP/COUPLES INTENSIVES. www.kevinflemingphd.com/marriage-couples-retreats.php

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of San Pedro, CA

A couple that is seeking counseling is making an unspoken statement that their relationship is very important to them. It can be painful and uncomfortable to try to let down our walls with someone we love who has hurt us, doesn't listen or see us anymore, or has cheated on us. Maybe you just lost your way in the relationship and have drifted apart. Whatever your situation, I can help both partners learn to listen and communicate clearly as well as pin point areas in the relationship that may need some work.

The main complaint that I hear when working with couples is that each partner often feels unheard and maybe struggling to get what they are needing from the relationship. In couples work we will collaborate together to cultivate a deeper understanding of each partner’s needs and develop the communication skills to lead with empathy and get each person’s needs heard and addressed more effectively.

“Unlatch” from Negative Emotions and Behaviors Some couples make the assumption that serious and persistent conflicts and differences will get resolved on their own. Time can heal, but it also helps if you are willing to work on improving your relationship. Relationship issues can be quite complex and it is not just a matter of learning how to “communicate” nice thoughts to one another. My role as a counselor is to identify and track the emotional experience of each person and to support the couple as they learn to engage in a more productive way so that each feels more heard, considered, respected and acknowledged.

Couples relationships can be both exciting and fulfilling, as well as frustrating and confusing at times for everyone. Couples get stuck in ruts or negative patterns, that they keep repeating, and don't know how to get out of. They keep wondering why it's not working for them. In couples therapy , it is important for the therapist to be able to listen well to both parties, and provide information and skills, that can be utilized back at home, to change those negative patterns they have been stuck in. Frequently, it doesn't take very many sessions to get things going in a much more positive direction!

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

I work from an emotionally focused attachment theory (EFT) when working with couples in Mission Viejo, CA. Research shows that humans are hardwired for a strong emotional bond. When a couple has relationship problems they experience an emotional disconnection with their partner at key moments. This leads to emotional reactions involving anger and criticism. I will work with you as a couple to help overcome those negative cycles and to re-establish your connection and strengthen your emotional bond. Through the exploration of emotions, reactions, inter-relations, and behaviors, you will be able to identify your pattern in relationship.

As a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist, I focus on helping couples improve their intimate relationships. Couples who are dating, engaged, married, or divorcing benefit from improved communication. Most couples, even those deeply in love, sometimes feel alone in their relationships. I help them to honor the space between them, cross the bridge to the other's world and listen with understanding and compassion. Solutions for relationship challenges flow easily once the connection is established. I help couples to understand the stages of relationship, recapture some of that early passion, reestablish fun and playfulness, and move forward toward their shared vision.

The benefits of Couple's Therapy can include an improvement in the relationship that saves it from stagnating or ending. But sometimes the couple benefits most by having a neutral, empathic environment in which to figure out that what they really want to do is break up, in the most amicable way possible. Whatever the conscious and unconscious goals of the client couple, these can be met given sufficient courage and the willingness to speak truthfully.

Relationships are an area where young adults can struggle. Wanting to create lasting bonds, they don't always think about who is a good match for them, given their family values, and plans for their life. Past failed relationships can also leave sensitive young adults hesitant to open their hearts and try to find love again. I help sensitive young adults discover what it takes to create the loving relationship they've always dreamed of.

A significant and ongoing relationship is hugely rewarding and worth the time and right effort. When a relationship is going poorly it can a lonely and miserable. I help couples feel safe enough to be open, and authentic. Being willing to share their experience of the relationship and deal with what is true for each person( which may be the same or may be different) is the way through difficulties. For there to be a connection there needs to be two. When someone is going along to get along or dominating/controlling the outcome of an interaction, or wanting the other person to be like they are couples get stuck. I help clients identify hurtful patterns and learn new ways of relating.

The two most important keys to a healthy relationship is communication & understanding how your partner wants to be loved. Clear and authentic communication is essential for a healthy relationship. A mindful partnership involves a place of understanding from where an individual is coming from. Clear boundaries and a respective responsibility of each other, as being unique is central for growth and belongingness. If a connection is fragmented, individuals cannot exist as one, than the relationship cannot be whole. Partners develop a dance around one another’s problems and develop dysfunctional patterns that are projected on the partner and world.

Our relationships can be affected by so many factors. Unfortunately, our history as children and adolescents plays a major role in our romantic relationships. I work with couples who are struggling with intimacy, communication, and setting boundaries. I also do specialized work with partners of survivors of sexual abuse to build a greater understanding and compassion for their partner. I want each couple that comes to see me, to leave at the end of treatment feeling secure and safe in their relationship.

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.

Married, dating, heterosexual, gay, or bisexual? I specialize in emotional intimacy, sex, addiction, and trauma, any of which can derail a relationship. You can heal your relationship or end it. I can help either way. Improve communication and handle conflicts better. Get your emotional baggage out of the way so it doesn’t hurt your relationship. Better for the couple and especially better when there are kids. Have kids and you’re divorcing? You’re still tied together. We can make that less damaging for everyone. Kids do better when their divorced parents work together for the kids’ best interest – dealing with emotions and communication better and not putting kids in the middle.

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.

Is there healing to be done in the areas of trust, jealousy, or infidelity? Every relationship is different and I help all types of couples re-connect and move forward.

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....

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.

Relationships are so important to our wellbeing, but can also be a stressor and challenge when problems arise between the couple. Therapy can help clients understand each other better and become more able to share their perspective and hear their partner's. In the process of therapy, couples can become more vulnerable, which often can lead to more closeness.

As a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist, I have done worked with many couples. In an Imago Couples Therapy session you and your partner will learn effective communication tools to break through relationship issues such as attack and defend power struggles that so many couples suffer from. The main tool is called “mirroring,” in which you actively listen, reflect and empathize with each other’s experience. Once a place of safety is created around any given conflict, a couple is generally able to move past the power struggle and into conscious problem solving—as well as greater appreciation, care, and love for each other. The couples counseling is done in an environment of safety, care, and respect for each partner. Because of the safe structure...(view profile to read more)

All couples face challenges in a relationship. What makes some relationships last and others that don't is a combination of communication skills and commitment to making the marriage work.

Couples are frequently referred to me by current and former clients, colleagues, and other healthcare professionals including physicians from several disciplines. More often than not, couples self-refer for help because one or both are feeling stuck and in pain. Sometimes there is an accumulation of hurts that have piled up. You need to talk about it. There are many benefits to couples counseling: enhanced communication, learning how to resolve conflict, creating more trust, growing intimacy, identifying triggers that can cause upsets, learning how to deal with the inevitable challenges that even the very best of relationships experience, and learning how to love at deeper levels.

I have been helping couples heal their relationships for more than 29 years. Effective therapy includes developing a clear understanding of the different family "cultures" couples have been raised in, and a clear perspective of how early hurts and pain can be re-triggered by the current marital or couple relationship. Communication skills are essential for working through chronic or immediate pain a couple is experiencing together--and empathy for the each other's perspective is at the heart of those skills. It is also essential to know when a relationship has the potential to open up and grow, and when development together is no longer currently possible due to abuse or excessive hostility

Every relationship experiences arguments and conflict. That is an inevitable part of being in an intimate relationship. These differences do not have to undermine a relationship so long as the underlying patterns of interaction which keep these conflicts active can be understood and resolved. As a specialist in couples counseling, I seek to help a couple identify these patterns and learn how to listen with understanding while promoting the authenticity of each individual. I use an emotionally focused treatment which allows a couple to work through their conflicts while enhancing their feelings of attachment and closeness. With 32 years of experience, I have helped many couples do this.

Being in a relationship is a complicated thing. Often people do not realize the magnitude the past impacts our ability to love, to handle conflict, to accurately communicate. Until you understand what each of you is bringing to the table, you are truly handicaped. Our early role models and messages about love and the opposite sex can create issues in our relationships. Unresolved issues from previous loves can create walls which make authentic love difficult. Helping to unlock the "gridlock" and get you moving again in a healthy direction is my goal. Don't wait for things to "magically" get better. Invest in your relationship and enjoy it once again.
