Psychotherapist

In 90026 - Nearby to Alondra Park.

There are countless models of healthy romantic relationships, from monogamous to polyamorous, and unique variations between partners. The scripts for dating and longterm relationships of our parents’ generations may not be applicable to your relationship, and there is no formal education in how to be a good partner or how to identify unhealthy relationships. But there is psychological research that shows that effective communication, emotional openness, intimacy, and other factors contribute to healthy relationships. Creating these conditions are skills that can be learned. I practice brief humanistic and emotion-focused therapy (EFT) to help my LGBTQ and hetero clients learn these skills.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 90024 - Nearby to Alondra Park.

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.

David Highfill, LCSW

Therapist & Counselor

In 91101 - Nearby to Alondra Park.

In couples counseling we will explore the strengths each of you brings to your relationship and how these contribute to the overall health of your relationship together. We will work to understand your contributions and barriers to making your relationship work. The focus will remain on your goals for the relationship with the understanding that these may change as we learn more about each parties level of contribution. I encourage honesty between both parties. You will be encouraged to speak directly with one another to work toward strengthening your communication skills by clarifying the meaning and quality of the words you choose when speaking with your partner.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 91101 - Nearby to Alondra Park.

Are you feeling disconnected from your partner? Drifting apart? Constantly fighting? Leading separate lives? It would be a privilege to help you reconnect and find the love that brought you together in the first place. I will help you understand why it doesn’t feel safe to truly express how you feel and create the safety necessary to share all of you with one another.

Tom Andre, MA
Couples Counselor

Tom Andre, MA

MFTI

In 90245 - Nearby to Alondra Park.

My approach is to help each partner see clearly where s/he stands, what s/he stands for, and what meaning the relationship holds. How do these values come into play in the relationship? How do our own expectations, and those of society at large, influence the relationship? Often, understanding the role of a relationship in our own lives reveals possible ways forward. Sometimes, it shows us that moving forward might not be what we want to do.

Couples Counselor

Laurie Burns, M.S., MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 90290 - Nearby to Alondra Park.

Each couple has their own unique dance. When in sync, there is a rhythmic flow between and within each partner. When there is a shift in the bond due to chaos and trauma, the movement between the two becomes disrupted and derailed; there is a dis-connect and a fight to re-connect and be understood by the other. I work with the understanding that the relationship between two people who love each other is not so much a behavioral negotiation, but rather a deep relational bond, where each partner longs for safety and trust. I help couples bring a deeper understanding of the bond between them and foster a safe haven for each partner to build a secure connection with each other.

Miriam Davis, M.A., M.F.T.
Couples Counselor

Miriam Davis, M.A., M.F.T.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 91505 - Nearby to Alondra Park.

I have worked with many couples over the years...married, living together, same sex or heterosexual. My initial focus is to understand the underlying dynamics and pain that each of the partners is experiencing in the relationship and what has caused the conflict, disappointment and distress they now feel. I then work to help each of them understand the needs of the other, and be able to communicate (hearing what the other means and "feels" and expressing what they need and feel) in more loving, respectful and clear ways. We work together to restore the attachment and bond that has been damaged so that they can rediscover love, intimacy, trust and respect for each other.

Verdant Oak Behavioral Health, Psy.D. and Ph.D.
Couples Counselor

Verdant Oak Behavioral Health, Psy.D. and Ph.D.

Psychologist

In 91030 - Nearby to Alondra Park.

Many people can benefit from couples therapy sessions, even if their relationships do not have obvious problems. People often wait until very late in the game before seeking help, often times after one or both have already decided to end the relationship. Seeking the help of a psychologist can strengthen the behavioral and emotional bonds that keep couples together. Couples therapy changes the way that couples behave with each other. Sessions focus on improving interactions and building resilience. By focusing on the “Three C’s” of intimacy (closeness, communication, and commitment), partners learn how to achieve intimacy with their romantic partners rather than isolation

Couples Counselor

Sheryl Colby, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 91316 - Nearby to Alondra Park.

Relationships can be difficult. Intimacy can be uncomfortable. Communication can be strained. Even though 2 people love each other, sometimes that just is not enough. When I do couple's work, it is very important that both people feel heard and can express their thoughts and feelings openly. Sometimes, help is needed to assist the expression of these thoughts and feelings. I provide a safe and secure environment to allow this process to occur and hopefully, a couple can work through their issues together resulting in a stronger and more satisfying union.

While Couples' Counseling sometimes involves discussing and working through conflict in a relationship, it may also include identifying life goals as a couple, rekindling love and affection, and learning new skills so that you are well-equipped to face life's joys and challenges as a united, supportive couple. Please reach out to see if your relationship could benefit from Couples' Counseling.

Chevvy Cheung, LCSW, PsyD.
Couples Counselor

Chevvy Cheung, LCSW, PsyD.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 90293 - Nearby to Alondra Park.

Intimate, committed relationships can start off beautifully where you cannot get enough of your partner. Then, before you know it-the desire and passion are gone, you hurt each other's feelings, you feel misunderstood and resentful. Often times, couples go to counseling to work on "communication" "regain desire" and to "build trust". Communication is more than just the words we use, I can help you and your partner understand each other and ensure what needs to be said-is said. The desire that you once felt can be found again. Trusting each other can happen again-I will help you and your partner regain the intimacy, connection and bond that made you commit to each other.

Couples Counselor

Nicole Thorn, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

In 90805 - Nearby to Alondra Park.

I enjoy working with couples to improve their communication. Often when we run into challenges in our relationship there is a lot of activation around these disagreements, arguments, or frustrations. We may feel a sense of betrayal or disconnection from our partners. By helping individuals to ground themselves and calm the nervous system activation around these charged topics, the couple is able to listen and communicate much more effectively. Sometimes learning and practicing the skill is not enough, we need help getting into a place both emotionally and physically that we can implement what we learn even when it's during our most difficult conversations.

Gary Brainerd, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist & Marriage Therapist

In 91101 - Nearby to Alondra Park.

Relationships are the stuff of life and wise persons will attend carefully to their intimate, committed relationship. Most couples are not aware of the sources of conflict and how these sources impact their relationships. Most couples do not understand how their coping habits, learned the child and teen years, will actually interfere with success in their love relationship. Couples all need to learn new and better ways to cope with relationships pain as their old coping habits will not work -- they will end up unintentionally hurting their partner.
