Couples therapy combines techniques from the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy. After gathering a comprehensive history about your relationship, we will specify goals and work to build strong emotional alliances. The goal is to help lead you to a deeper understanding of each other, and then move toward more effective problem solving and accountability for communicating your needs within the relationship.

My doctoral research was on the difference between intense/compelling & secure/comfortable romantic love experiences and I have been studying love for the past 35 years. I taught the Interpersonal Attraction/Romantic Love course at Chapman University, along with Human Sexuality & Sexual Disorders & Treatment. I am certified in Gottman Method Couples therapy, as an ASL (Gottman) Workshop Leader, and a Gottman Method Level I Teacher.

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Available for Online Therapy

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.

Couples Counselor

Cristy Pareti, PsyD, MFT

Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Capistrano Beach

Many couples present in distress with a strong desire to enhance their relationships. I like to work with communication styles as well as explore some old patterns of relating that may have their history in early childhood experiences with their own families. Being able to identify these old patterns of relating to a significant other can help couples to understand why they bring these old patterns into their current relationship. After these patterns are identified, new ways of relating and communicating are explored and practiced. Listening skills and acceptance are important areas of exploration throughout therapy as well. Couples find new & satisfying ways of relating with each other.

Couples Counselor

Andrea Schoon, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Capistrano Beach

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

Pamela Wilson, Psy.D., MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist & Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of Capistrano Beach

Choosing a partner and maintaining a relationship with that person is one of the most difficult and challenging tasks in our life. I see many couples who long for a more loving and satisfying relationship with their mate, but are unable for a variety of reasons to establish and/or maintain one. If you can communicate, you can bear almost anything! Couple's counseling can help both of you create a new and more satisfying way of being with each other. I coach you in how to create safety in talking about your experience and teach you to express your deepest thoughts and feelings, which ultimately creates a richer and more intimate relationship for you both.

Couples Counselor

Elizabeth Armstrong, MA, MFTI

Marriage and Family Therapist Registered Intern

Within driving distance of Capistrano Beach

When problems enter a relationship or family construct it is easy for people to fall into cycles of blame that create further disharmony. I utilize Narrative Therapy and post-modern practices that highlight social discourses that may be influencing your relationship. Collaborating, we will find what unites you in your relationship and how be in partnership against the problems that keep you in isolation. Together, we will target those struggles that are threatening your relationships and understand how to get out of the blame cycle—and how to re-focus on your shared dreams as a couple or family.

Couples Counselor

Anthony Fiore, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Capistrano Beach

I specialize in couples and marriage counseling. My approach is based on recent research in marriage science showing what habits successful couples have that other do not. My approach is skills based and practical, teaching both of you how to communicate more effectively, how to understand each other, how to decide what is changeable and what is not in your relationship, how to deal with perpetual issues,on which you may be deadlocked, and different ways to view issues and problems in your relationship to reduce conflict. I also help you identify what is working in your relationship, (or what used to work) so that we can build on the positive.

Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within driving distance of Capistrano Beach

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?

Couples Counselor

Prepare To Change, Psy.D., HSPP

Individual and Family Therapists

Within driving distance of Capistrano Beach

We work with couples who are struggling in their relationship because of problems that may include finances, communication, sex, kids, in-laws, abuse, boundaries, respect, roles, job stress, and infidelity. We also work individually with each member of the couple, as sometimes there are issues that are best discussed or explored separately. Our clients learn a different, more loving and accepting model of communication so that they can more fully enjoy their relationship without unnecessary frustration.

Couples Counselor

Piper Glasier, MSW, LCSW, Psy.D

Psychotherapist/Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of Capistrano Beach

Our intimate relationships are the place we search for the greatest meaning and are, ironicaly, the field most rich in landmines. Whatever is not worked through in us will be activated in these most important relationships. Learning your own sensitivities and your own 'buttons' as you learn those of your partner can transform your relationship from one of hostility to one of deep support and love. I have experienced this transformation firsthand many times and it is a privilege to see relationships restored and rebuilt on a healthy, solid foundation.
