Couples Counselor

Jeff Cohen, MA, MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Colma

I work with a lot of couples, and have helped them learn to relate with more empathy, effective communication and positive regard. I'll help you to better understand each other, and to manage conflict in a more productive and supportive way. Though we are by nature drawn to be in relationship, there are now well understood reasons—rooted in our neurobiology and our attachment patterns (which I'll explain)—that often make functioning in relationships difficult. In addition to helping you understand the source of these difficulties, I'll guide you in using that knowledge to create a more intimate, enriching and secure partnership, one based on the principle that you are in each other's care.

LIcensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Colma

Do you feel that your relationship with your partner has become more difficult through time? Have the challenges of juggling the demands of work & child rearing responsibilities caused you to lose connection with one another? Do you ask yourself why can't my partner and I communicate effectively? The growing demands on couples and families in our success-driven society can result in the loss of effective communication & connection with each other. Utilizing techniques from Dr. John Gottman, & Dr. Sue Johnson's Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, I help couples heal, reconnect & reestablish their love relationship with a more compassion, and deeper understanding of one another.

Couples Counselor

Jennifer Twardowski, MA, MFTi

Holistic Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Colma

Couples therapy can be both scary and difficult, but it can be an essential component in creating a relationship dynamic that can last a lifetime. In working with couples, I use methodologies from both the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy. In using these methods, couples are better able to understand their relationship dynamic, better understand issues or potential issues and discover ways to better work in relationship to one another.

Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within driving distance of Colma

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

Chloe Lankshear, M.Ed, Ed.S, MFTI

Marriage & Family Therapist Registered Intern

Within driving distance of Colma

I focus my practice on supporting families (or key individuals within the family) facing issues related to separation, divorce, co-parenting and mixed/blended families. I work with couples who are going through the processes of separation and divorce, supporting them with being able to co-parent successfully. I can also work with parents as they re-partner, creating new blended/mixed families.

Couples Counselor

Natalie M. Mills, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Colma

Many of the couples I see come to me for the following reasons: they have become more like roommates rather than a romantic couple, inability to trust one another, jealousy in the relationship, unfulfilling sexual or emotional intimacy, intense yelling and arguing, general dissatisfaction, an episode of infidelity, navigating divorce or separation. It can feel both hopeful and scary for couples to explore these issues in their relationship. Our work will explore why your relationship is exhibiting its pattern, give you tips and strategies to abate and extinguish unhealthy cycles, and achieve and maintain the relationship you want.

Couples Counselor

Robert Nemerovski, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Colma

Couples often come to counseling when they have difficulty talking with each other or resolving an issue. Some find that a familiar struggle or behavioral pattern “dynamic” comes up over and over again. Commonly, tensions and emotions can run high, and each person may feel some combination of distant, resentful, sad, hurt, worried, or angry. Couples counseling is a special opportunity to understand these patterns and explore new communication, behaviors, and connection. I help facilitate a more productive conversation in a safe environment and offer exercises and other resources to practice from home. I welcome and provide couples counseling to people from all backgrounds.

Marriage Family Therapist

Are you trapped in destructive cycles of anger and blame? Have you lost trust because of an affair? Are you avoiding your partner or feeling disengaged? Is it hard for you to have real conversations or solve problems together? I will help you untangle your painful negative cycles of communication and build new stronger connections. You can learn to have power over that cycle by learning your triggers and undoing them. You will learn about the roots of the cycle learned in early relationships.

Couples Counselor

Alex Hoeplinger Patten, M.A., LMFT

LMFT 98700

Within driving distance of Colma

Relationships are the most complicated, yet most rewarding things in life. They make us feel excited, happy, and high on life one minute while maintaining the ability bring us pain, frustration, and emotional distress the next. For all the beauty that comes with companionship and commitment, there are also times when you have to sacrifice things you may not want to for the sake of the relationship. Furthermore, maintaining one’s own identity while growing with another person can be a lot to manage. I help couples come to a much more meaningful understanding of how each person is showing up in the relationship so that they can make healthier choices towards a more fulfilling future together.

Couples Counselor

Zak Forrest, Zachary Forrest, LMFT

Licensed Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Colma

Issues that can be worked on in couples counseling often stem from conscious and unconscious assumptions and expectations that each person has about the other. The individual sees the other through the lens of their upbringing and relationship history. I help couples unpack the complex and often tangled web of how each person is understood and misunderstood in the eyes of the other. In doing so, each partner can have a deeper understanding of themselves and their partner, generating compassion, clearer communication, and emotional space from pressing issues.

Couples Counselor

Amelia Katkov, MA, MFTI

MFTI

Within driving distance of Colma

We don't always have examples of how to have a successful or healthy relationship, and sometimes find ourselves without the tools to navigate challenges within our own relationships. In working with me you can expect to build tools for truly and actively listening to your partner while also learning how to provide your partner with the same support. These tools can be safely mastered in my office, and then taken with you for continued use in your relationship.

I specialize is working with couples of all relationship configurations (poly, monogamous, queer, hetero, etc.) and multi-heritage and mixed race couples. I hold our relationship, the unconscious dynamics between members of the couple, and the couples--experiences, identities, struggles, successes and strengths--in the context of each persons social-culutral-familiar locations in society. I want to better understand what each person is needing to express feel and work through, in order for healing to take place between you and your partner(s).
