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.

Psychotherapist

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.

Living with another person can be difficult, whether you are married or considering marriage. When communication breaks down, it can be hard to understand another person's point of view. Couple counseling with a neutral professional can be very helpful. The most common issues concern finances and sex, including infidelity, sexual dysfunctions, sexual addiction, and divorce. As a psychologist, Dr. Clark works with people from all cultures and backgrounds, including alternative lifestyles.

Relationships are hard. This is a fact that many people deny and others become aware of when it is too late. By creating an environment where couples can communicate in an honest manner, I work with them to establish clear lines of communication. In addition to working with couples, I am currently working toward a certification as a sex therapist.

Amie Lowery-Luyties, MFT, PPS, MS
Couples Counselor

Amie Lowery-Luyties, MFT, PPS, MS

Marriage and Family Therapist

In 90802 - Nearby to Carson.

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.

We require all our therapists to be educated specifically in couples therapy.

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.

The goal of couples therapy is to bring out the best in you and your partner, strengthening the quality of your relationship, as a point of balance, allowing you to deal with issues in ways that support you to grow as individuals and a couple. To increase your understanding of yourself, your partner, and the patterns of interactions that have become detrimental to the relationship.

Mark Tinley, LMFT
Couples Counselor

Mark Tinley, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 90071 - Nearby to Carson.

“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.

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?

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

In 91733 - Nearby to Carson.

Are you struggling with communication between you and your significant other? Do you find it difficult to feel close and connected to that person? Maybe you're experiencing barriers in that relationship that were unexpected. Coming to couples' therapy does not mean that there is necessarily something "wrong" with your relationship; what it can mean is that you and your loved one want to make adjustments or improvements in your relationship and just aren't sure where to begin or what to go about doing so. I'd be happy to work with you to find ways to help your relationship grow and develop into one that is healthy and nurturing.

Elvina Lui, M.A., MFT

California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 91103 - Nearby to Carson.

Helping couples is my specialty! I feel such a passion for this because I know how great it is to be in a supportive, fulfilling, and intimate relationship. I also know how awful it can be when the relationship is not working--feeling unhappy, dissatisfied, neglected, attacked, disrespected, betrayed. I have been helping couples improve their relationship and regaining intimacy for a number of years. For some, it means decreasing the verbal fights by talking through past hurts, forgiving, and rebuilding trust. For others, it is rekindling the fire of passion and falling in love all over again. Whatever the case, I can help your relationship get to where you want it to be!

Psychotherapist / Clinical Director

In 91505 - Nearby to Carson.

Couples therapy can be helpful with understanding the patterns that lead to conflict, learning "how to fight" in a way that is productive, and learning how to create more positivity and intimacy in the relationship. In practice I create a safe, non-judgmental environment where couples can work developing simple strategies that will help with increasing closeness, improving communication, and creating traction towards shared goals.

Debra Burianek, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 90703 - Nearby to Carson.

Couples counseling is some of the most rewarding work a Marriage/Couples counselor can do, we love to help restore broken or just wounded relationships. Sometimes the brokenness gets so bad that people start thinking of separating or divorcing. Often people think that once they separate or divorce that they will not have to put up with each other again. This may be true if you don’t have children. However, if you have children you will still have to navigate the process of getting along even after you have separated. The issues don’t go away. As a licensed Marriage and Family therapist I can help you separate out the pitfalls of separation or divorce realistically.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 90036 - Nearby to Carson.

I enjoy working collaboratively with couples and moving towards what they want their story to be. What do they stand for as a couple? What is getting in the way of their desired story? What are their strengths? How are the outside influences such as culture and family affecting them? How can they come together based on their values? 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.

Nicole Thorn, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

In 90805 - Nearby to Carson.

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.
