Couples Counselor

Phil Kiehl, M.Div, BCC

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Certified Chaplain & Grief Counselor

Within driving distance of East Pasadena

My approach to counseling couples is to believe that all people in relationships want two things: To be loved and to be accepted. When couples seek psychotherapy, they are fighting because they do not feel loved but instead are feeling rejected, abaondoned or alone. People also are not feeling accepted but instead are feeling judged, criticized, or blamed for who they are. Couples will benefit from my approach as I help people learn how to work through hurt, anger and blame, love and forgiveness, and boundaires and acceptance. When you feel loved and accepted, you will benefit from wanting to work with one another to solve relationship problems and find success in being a couple.

Couples Counselor

Lori Buckley, Psy.D., CST.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist, Certified Sex Therapist

Within driving distance of East Pasadena

Do you feel like something is wrong or missing from your relationship? Most of us were not taught the skills necessary to have a healthy and satisfying relationship, which is why I believe almost everyone can benefit from couple's therapy. Working with couples who want to improve their communication, their sexual experiences and their quality of life is the focus of my practice...relationship and sex therapy is what I specialize in. I have helped hundreds of couples and I can help you too!

Couples Counselor

Anthony Fiore, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of East Pasadena

I specialize in couples and marriage counseling. My approach is based on recent research in marriage science showing what habits successful couples have that other do not. My approach is skills based and practical, teaching both of you how to communicate more effectively, how to understand each other, how to decide what is changeable and what is not in your relationship, how to deal with perpetual issues,on which you may be deadlocked, and different ways to view issues and problems in your relationship to reduce conflict. I also help you identify what is working in your relationship, (or what used to work) so that we can build on the positive.

Couples Counselor

Mimi Shagaga, PsyD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of East Pasadena

Relationships are hard. This is a fact that many people deny and others become aware of when it is too late. By creating an environment where couples can communicate in an honest manner, I work with them to establish clear lines of communication. In addition to working with couples, I am currently working toward a certification as a sex therapist.

Couples Counselor

Cristy Pareti, PsyD, MFT

Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of East Pasadena

Many couples present in distress with a strong desire to enhance their relationships. I like to work with communication styles as well as explore some old patterns of relating that may have their history in early childhood experiences with their own families. Being able to identify these old patterns of relating to a significant other can help couples to understand why they bring these old patterns into their current relationship. After these patterns are identified, new ways of relating and communicating are explored and practiced. Listening skills and acceptance are important areas of exploration throughout therapy as well. Couples find new & satisfying ways of relating with each other.

Couples Counselor

Mary Kay Cocharo, LMFT, CIRT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of East Pasadena

As a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist, I focus on helping couples improve their intimate relationships. Couples who are dating, engaged, married, or divorcing benefit from improved communication. Most couples, even those deeply in love, sometimes feel alone in their relationships. I help them to honor the space between them, cross the bridge to the other's world and listen with understanding and compassion. Solutions for relationship challenges flow easily once the connection is established. I help couples to understand the stages of relationship, recapture some of that early passion, reestablish fun and playfulness, and move forward toward their shared vision.

Couples Counselor

Adam Sheck, PsyD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of East Pasadena

My initial work was with sexless/touchless couples, where I developed a speciality in supporting them in bringing the passion back to their relationship. This included sex of course, but also a deeper passion, a passion for life, a joie de vivre, a deep, loving connection. This is how I became known as the "Passion Doctor". My approach is to get the couple back into connection: verbally, emotionally and physically through psycho-education and exercises specifically tailored for them. My approach is not cookie-cutter or generic and combines the many disciplines I have studied and practiced including psychotherapy, somatic work, breath work and Tantric practices.

Couples Counselor

Kristen Gardenhire, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of East Pasadena

Couples can find themselves in difficult dynamics. They get stuck in cycles and feel there is no way out. Therapy is a wonderful solution to helping couples become "unstuck." My hope is that you will find help for your struggling marriage or relationship - that you can experience freedom from constant conflict and begin to relate to each other in ways that are supportive and life giving.

Couples Counselor

Jamey Hecht, MA, PhD, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of East Pasadena

The benefits of Couple's Therapy can include an improvement in the relationship that saves it from stagnating or ending. But sometimes the couple benefits most by having a neutral, empathic environment in which to figure out that what they really want to do is break up, in the most amicable way possible. Whatever the conscious and unconscious goals of the client couple, these can be met given sufficient courage and the willingness to speak truthfully.

Couples Counselor

Betsy Walli, MS, PhD

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist 85860

Within driving distance of East Pasadena

As an EFT therapist, I can help you and your partner to reconnect, escape from the repetitive cycles that keep you distant from each other, make sense of your emotions, improve the way you handle stress and conflict, and restore trust and safety with each other. There is no bad guy in your relationship. I'll help you see how your feelings and behaviors make perfect sense - and work with you both to create new, positive cycles that draw you closer together. EFT is very well supported by research showing that it significantly improves over 86% of distressed relationships, and importantly, that those benefits are still present two or three years after therapy is over.

Couples Counselor

Terence Cochran, Ph.D., MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist, Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of East Pasadena

I have been helping couples heal their relationships for more than 29 years. Effective therapy includes developing a clear understanding of the different family "cultures" couples have been raised in, and a clear perspective of how early hurts and pain can be re-triggered by the current marital or couple relationship. Communication skills are essential for working through chronic or immediate pain a couple is experiencing together--and empathy for the each other's perspective is at the heart of those skills. It is also essential to know when a relationship has the potential to open up and grow, and when development together is no longer currently possible due to abuse or excessive hostility

When couples wish to work through their relationship difficulties, or do premarital couples therapy, they will find my office to be a safe, nonjudmental, and encouraging space. You will colaborate with your spouse, and prioritize issues you'd like to discuss. You will explore your own ability for acceptance and tolerance of your spouse's behavior. We will work together on communication skills, and styles, we'll try to soften the dialogue. We'll learn about problem solving skills with which husband and wife are heard. If there are sexual problems, I have experience in treating sex addiction, internet pornography addiction, and the affect of extended families on your relationship.
