Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Costa Mesa, California

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.

Couples Counselor

Kristi Starkey, MS, MFT, #52051

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

1700 Adams Avenue, Suite 214, Costa Mesa, California

I work from an emotionally focused attachment theory (EFT) when working with couples in Mission Viejo, CA. Research shows that humans are hardwired for a strong emotional bond. When a couple has relationship problems they experience an emotional disconnection with their partner at key moments. This leads to emotional reactions involving anger and criticism. I will work with you as a couple to help overcome those negative cycles and to re-establish your connection and strengthen your emotional bond. Through the exploration of emotions, reactions, inter-relations, and behaviors, you will be able to identify your pattern in relationship.

Couples Counselor

Sue Shepard, MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

2900 Bristol St., Suite G-201, Costa Mesa, California

Couples have come to see me for a variety of reasons throughout the years, but I find that no matter what the presenting problem may be, being able to effectively communicate with each other is vital to restoring the relationship. Often couples have a completely different style of relating to one another and resolving conflict. I work with couples to better understand their partner and I help each person to communicate in a way that they can finally be heard. It doesn’t matter what you are fighting about if the other person can’t hear what you are saying. Call 714-751-0888 so I can help you express yourself more effectively so you can stop the fighting and start the healing process.

Couples Counselor

Robert Puff, M.A., M.Div., Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

2436 W. Coast Hwy., Suite 103, Newport Beach, California

Marriage counseling can be the best thing you can do for your relationship, whether you’re having marriage problems or not. Either way, the skills learned in marriage counseling can help you find happiness and satisfaction with your spouse. If you are having significant problems, and you want marriage counseling to work, you need to be willing to put everything into it. You cannot shut down and refuse to participate because you “already made your decision.” Give your marriage a chance. Give yourself and your spouse a chance to be happy. I have helped many couples, and I have found that the majority of them benefit from the therapy and gain happier marriages. Unfortunately, many couples wait ye....

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.

Couples Counselor

Steven Harris, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

1400 Quail Street, No. 210, Newport Beach, California

Even the best couples have long-term issues that they disagree about. Without communication, it is hard for even the most loving couples to last. I help couples take their conversations further in my office than they do at home. Eventually, you will learn to do it by yourself at home. I help couples learn to approach difficult subjects, discuss and resolve them. I help identifying hot spots, get more comfortable ways to communicate about them, learn to be more sensitive to each other, and perhaps more importantly, find your way through these conflicts so you can get on with the more satisfying, happy and enjoyable aspects of your lives together.
