Couples Counselor

Rudi Lion, MA, MFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Carpinteria

I love working with couples. I believe that many of our issues and misunderstandings in relationships are based in a lack of feeling safe within the couple. Together we will explore the rules and roles of relating that you bring with you from your family of origin and how those 'dictates' influence your current behavior with your partner. We also take an in-depth look at your attachment history, looking how loved and supported you felt with your primary caregivers and again how these early bonds inform your present bond. I will support you in creating a safe and loving 'home' for your relationship, a safe space where you know your partner has your back.

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Online Therapist / Coach

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.

Psychotherapist & Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Learn to keep your cool and communicate more effectively with your partner, develop deeper feelings of closeness and trust, get clear on what's "yours" and what's "theirs," be empowered to make positive changes in relationship. Over a lifetime, you may have different relationships with different people, the same relationship over and over with different people, or different relationships with the same person-- a relationship must grow and change over time to keep up with our own individual changes. We all speak the language of love in different ways which complicates romantic relationships. With my support, learn to better understand your partner's and teach them to understand yours!

Couples Counselor

Ellen Klavan, MA, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Carpinteria

Couples seek therapy for all kinds of reasons--from affairs to sexual problems to fighting and frustration. Sometimes things are going well but the partners sense that their relationship could be even better. I work from the EFT Couples Therapy model, which works to strengthen the bonds that brought you into relationship in the first place. We'll also explore the personal issues that each partner brings to the relationship. Talking about these issues openly helps couples grow closer and builds intimacy. Gay and lesbian couples are welcome.

Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within driving distance of Carpinteria

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

Daryl Temkin, Ph.D

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Online Therapist / Coach

Couples may they be in a dating relationship, living together, engaged to marry, married, in business together, separating, divorcing, fighting over children, property, alimony or visitation, are often confronted with a breakdown in communication and an inability to resolve conflicts. Couple counseling aims to reveal the disconnect within a couple that often once had the ability to connect and function in harmony. Couples can quickly get off track with one another and need skilled guidance to help them learn to resolve conflicts, once again listen and communicate effectively as well as to be able to disagree without forcing the relationship to end.
