Are you dating and having problems in communication and other areas? Getting counseling while you are in the dating phase can prevent you from developing unhealthy habits that keep you from moving to the next level in your relationship. Couple Counseling can help you learn those skills needed to enhance your relationship.

It really hurts when the person you love is focused on "being right", rather than really getting you! Does your relationship create a deep pain or numbness in your heart? When we start to believe that our LEGITIMATE needs for connection will not be adequately met with our partner, it is easy to focus on our personal needs (at the expense of our partner's). A NORMAL human response to this is: nagging, petty repetitive fights, silent-treatments, numbing out, outbursts, being condescending, focusing on being right (rather than really listening). Using EFT, I FOCUS ON SHIFTING THE CULTURE OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP from its current negative painful cycles into being a safe place for both of you.

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

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.

Couples Counselor

Jeff Cohen, MA, MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Contra Costa Centre

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.

Couples Counselor

Maren Gleason, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Contra Costa Centre

I am certified in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy which is based on 30 years of research into what works for couples. 90% of couples who go through Emotionally Focused Therapy report an improvement in their relationship. Sometimes it can seem like the same argument happens over and over, even though the topic might seem different. Often partners don't feel that they are understood or heard. I help couples understand, see, and hear their own and their partner's more vulnerable feelings which underlie the stuck pattern of arguments. The closeness you used to have can be regained and is often improved as you understand and know each other better than you ever did before

Couples Counselor

Lawrence Tunis, Ed.D, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Contra Costa Centre

I subscribe to the John Gottman method which teaches effective listening, softening tools, creating love maps and building mutual respect and value for each family member. Family therapy is one of my favorite areas as I love to see couples and families relearn how to experience the love they share for one another and give every family member a voice so they can gain selfesteem that they can bring out in to the world.

Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within driving distance of Contra Costa Centre

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?

I truly enjoy working with couples. The connectivity (whether you feel it there at the time or not) and desire to share a life and join with one another is paramount. I work with all kinds of coupes, in every stage of life. Dating, pre- martial counseling, Married couples and separated. Couples can find what brought them together again and learn how to hear one another, touch each other, and grow old together. Counseling can provide you with new perspectives and positive options. Powerful strategies and tools are needed to break old patterns and change your way of life.

Maureen Fiorelli, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Contra Costa Centre

I have been working with couples for 15 years and I use a combination of different styles when working with couples. I am informed by the work of John Gottman (Gottman Technique) and also by Emotionally Focused Therapy. I help clients learn communication techniques and lower their incidents of fighting. I help clients get to the source of their marital dissatisfaction or relationship struggles. I also enjoy working with clients who identify as LGBTQ and clients who are in poly relationships.

Couples Counselor

Dan Quinn, Psy.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Contra Costa Centre

My work focuses on a combination of skills training in how happy couples talk and argue, and the creation of safety and opportunities to create "heart-to-heart" conversations to restore and revitalize intimacy in your relationship. It is these two approaches that are supported convincingly by a large body of research, and it requires a therapist who acts as coach and referee. I don't let couples fight their same old fights in my office - the whole point is to get past the same old arguments and have the deeper and more useful conversations that have been sidetracked.
