When your relationship isn't happy, it affects every area of your life. (Research implicates even issues of one's health, career advancement, and annual income!) Therapy can be a way to build lifelong relationship skills and a fresh perspective that transfer into all settings (work, parenting, friendships and family life). It's well worth the investment!

Couples Counselor

Jon Holmes, M.Div., M.A., L.M.F.T.

Licensed Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Citrus Heights

I specialize in working with couples that have trauma, addiction and mental health concerns impacting the relationship. Often relationship difficulties are a symptom of another area that is needing attention, compassion and care. Couples counseling can be a frustrating experience when progress is hampered by other factors that are not easily seen or considered obvious. This is a very important part of effective couples work and often provides earlier positive results because the issues harming the relationship are brought to the surface and compassionately addressed.

In Couples therapy I have completed Level Three Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and I use Gottman Method in therapy work. Gottman Method Couples Therapy is a structured, goal-oriented, scientifically-based therapy. Intervention strategies are based upon empirical data from Dr. Gottman’s three decades of research. This research shows us what actually works to help couples achieve a long-term healthy relationship. Also, in my practice, as needed, other therapy methods are employed as well.

Within driving distance of Citrus Heights

Whether or not your married, whether or not you are thinking about marriage, if you are in a relationship with another person, you are bound to occasionally have some communication issues or misunderstandings. However, when these communication issues or misunderstandings prevent us from having a happy and healthy relationship, we need to seek help before deciding to separate or divorce. My couples counseling can help you identify the causes of relationship dissatisfaction and find ways to help you communicate and listen better.

Couples Counselor

Joe Borders, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Citrus Heights

When working with couples, I take a very attachment based approach. We all seek to feel loved, supported, and secure in our relationships. Couples develop problems when something happens to damage this or threatens to damage this. Often times couples get into negative cycles or have been hurt by each other in the past and so come to expect to be hurt by one another. When working with couples it is my job to help each individual express their underlying emotions, fears, and insecurities, while also helping to grow empathy for one another. This ultimately helps couples to understand how their negative interactions are mostly the result of fear of getting hurt or abandoned.

Couples Counselor

Joan Fellows, M.A. MFC

Licensed Marriage, Family, Individual Therapist

Within driving distance of Citrus Heights

In my work with couples I focus on helping the couple create a safe and secure connection to one another. The couple will become aware of: 1. The pattern of communication between them that disrupts connection. 2. The underlying often vulnerable feelings that are not expressed. 3. What it is that triggers each person's fear, anger or hurt. 4. Learn patterns of communication that create a safe and secure connection. Conflict will always be a part of relationships. What is key to creating a nurturing safe connection with one another is how we handle these conflicts when they occur.

Kimberly Greene, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

“I work to help couples understand and communicate with each other better. I help them uncover the complex and varied realities that impact them while moving them to a better and healthier relationship.” I have a passion for working with all ages, races, cultures and orientations. I incorporate mindfulness techniques, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and methods by Satir and Minuchin into my sessions. My goal is to help couples to regain healthier ways of communicating and the ability to live with themselves as well as each other.

Couples Counselor

Michael Thaden, MS, LMFT, ATR-BC, CHT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Citrus Heights

The “mechanics” of healthy healing relationships is often easier said than done. We all need a valuing mirror to validate our core experience, and this is where the healing work of therapy comes in. I emphasize a valuing approach to each person’s experience as a foundation for assisting couples in strengthening the “mechanics” of what we know facilitates healthy satisfying relationships. I am repeatedly impressed to the power of Compassion for supercharging the many brilliant tools made available to us by the likes of Harville Hendrix, John Gottman to get relationships back on track to promote the healing and growth are meant to fulfill in our personal and interpersonal relationships.

Couples Counselor

Heidi Summers, M.A., LMFT,LPCC

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist & Professional Clinical Counselor

Within driving distance of Citrus Heights

Relationships are one of the most important things in life. When there is happiness, harmony, love, and respect at home we feel alive and we feel good. My goal is to help you to understand the real issues that are causing conflict, dissatisfaction, or even apathy. Why is it people fight over and over about the same issue? What happened to the passion and intimacy that was once there? Why can't we communicate? These are just some of the questions you might have. I cherish the work I do in helping others to heal broken relationships and to guide people in restoring the feelings you once felt for each other. I will listen to both of you & find your common ground to heal and grow.

Couples Counselor

Joan Druckman, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Citrus Heights

Couples therapy is my area of specialization and I love this part of my work. Many couples I see are in significant distress in their relationship and we work toward understanding what is causing and maintaining the distress. We will identify and explore the relationship patterns that lead to disconnection as the first step toward positive change and then work toward the development of greater intimacy, trust, safety and emotional connection. I have helped many couples who are on the brink of separation and divorce, as well as couples who are recovering from affairs, betrayals, and addiction.

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Citrus Heights

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.
