He thinks it is her fault and she thinks it is his. Some couples blame, accuse, and criticize. Others live separate lives, almost as distant friends living in the same house. Sometimes someone cheats on the other or goes off alone to view pornography, leaving the unresolved conflicts of the relationship in the background. A fearful lover may either hide in some way or try to desperately control the other. If you are on the brink of splitting up, but not quite ready to totally give up, then now is the crucial time to seek help. Thomas Schmierer, Catholic Therapist, LMFT helps couples address the fears of intimacy that are keeping the relationship weak. Your relationship can be fixed!

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. I have helped many couples in this treatment format in my Carlsbad private practice over the past 22 years. You might be asking how does this work. In a couple, if one member shifts perspective, shifts behavior and gains new tools, the relationship dynamic will change. Call today for a free 20 min. phone consultation.

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

Why do we seem to have the same arguments over and over again? How do I know if we are really supposed to be together? Are there things we could be doing to better support each other, to help each other grow and be our best selves? If we really love each other, why do we so often hurt each other? How do I know if this is real love, anyway? Relationships are hard. Even more than desire, they require effort and understanding to make them work. Often, even if two people really love each other, one or both may need help to maintain the right effort or understanding to keep the balance necessary for long-term success. Having outside, objective support can make all the difference.

Most couples experience conflict because they do not know how to take care of themselves, and regulate their own emotions when they are upset (angry or afraid). Many couples need to learn how to listen effectively, for meaning, not just the content of words. Many people need to learn how to communicate emotions as feelings ("I feel ...sad, angry, jealous, insecure...."), and thoughts/beliefs as thoughts, not feelings. ("I think you..."; "I believe that...your kids, mother, boss..." versus "I feel that you don't care"). Most people can uncover what they need to change, learn the new skills to replace old communication styles, and discover richer, more satisfying relationships.

Humans experience the world through relationships with others. We are made to connect! When connections with our significant others are fractured, it can impact our mood, our health, our work and family relationships. We fear being abandoned, alone, and a disappointment to those important to us. Emotionally Focused Therapy can help us to reconnect, feel cared for, and to feel loved and valued again by our partners. You do not need to remain stuck in repetitive cycles of isolation and pain. Whatever your partnership arrangement, you are welcome. Things can change for the better! Maybe you are a couple on the brink of divorce. Discernment counseling can help get clarity on the path to take.
