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

Judith Wyatt, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Daly City

I work with couples to set up a non-blaming environment in counseling, and to make it clear that I believe that each person's basic needs and feelings are valid, and that I intend to make equal room for each. I am not there to judge between you, and we dispense with the right/wrong model, barring actual abuse. We look at the pluses between you, and the areas of conflict. I teach non-violent communication and the appropriate setting of boundaries. We explore the unconscious assumptions you each bring from your family of origin, and the acceptance of your differences as valid. You will learn that you each have a personal dictionary, and how easy it is to misinterpret each other.

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 Daly City

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 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.

All couples run in to difficulties--some big, some small and most repetitive. Using state of the art techniques I can guide you through a process that helps you break the patterns of interaction with your partner that are causing the distance. Maybe you've lost the spark, and you want it back, or neither of you feels understood, and you desperately want to be heard. In my 30+ years of experience, it has become clear to me that couples need a way to connect or re-connect that works and lasts. I'll show you how.

Couples Counselor

Erika Shershun, MA, MFT

Somatic Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Daly City

A sense of belonging happens when we feel truly seen by one who loves us, yet it is in the safety of belonging that much of our wounding begins to emerge. Patterns of relating created by attachment, separation, and loss formed during childhood form the foundation of self perception on physical, emotional, and psychological levels, significantly influencing and impacting our adult relationships. It is through these most intimate relationships that we find the greatest opportunity to heal our attachment wounds. Together we can identify, explore, and bring relief to the cycles of triggering that you and your partner(s) get caught in, creating a greater sense of connection and intimacy.
