Every relationship is unique and has different challenges. I treat the relationship as the client and work towards making that "client" healthy and able to thrive. I work with all types of couples including trans* couples and same sex couples. Working to make the relationship healthy, often requires work for each member of the relationship as each brings a lot to the relationship. A good relationship can be the rock when you hit hard times and be the inspiration to build a wonderful future. Call now to start strengthening your relationship!

Couples Counselor

Heidi Summers, M.A., LMFT,LPCC

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist & Professional Clinical Counselor

Within driving distance of Elk Grove

Relationships are one of the most important things in life. When there is happiness, harmony, love, and respect at home we feel alive and we feel good. My goal is to help you to understand the real issues that are causing conflict, dissatisfaction, or even apathy. Why is it people fight over and over about the same issue? What happened to the passion and intimacy that was once there? Why can't we communicate? These are just some of the questions you might have. I cherish the work I do in helping others to heal broken relationships and to guide people in restoring the feelings you once felt for each other. I will listen to both of you & find your common ground to heal and grow.

Couples counseling can help when your are having difficulties in your relationship. Whether you are in a relationship, looking for pre-marital counseling, living together, or married, therapy can help you with your connection, communication, your ability to reduce conflicts, reduce resentments, and restore passion and intimacy. It can help your relationship if even just one of you come without your partner. When one person makes shifts in the relationship it can make positive changes as well. Many couples wait longer than necessary hoping the problems will just go away. Don't wait until it's too late. Get help and change the course of your relationship.

Couples Counselor

Joe Borders, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Elk Grove

When working with couples, I take a very attachment based approach. We all seek to feel loved, supported, and secure in our relationships. Couples develop problems when something happens to damage this or threatens to damage this. Often times couples get into negative cycles or have been hurt by each other in the past and so come to expect to be hurt by one another. When working with couples it is my job to help each individual express their underlying emotions, fears, and insecurities, while also helping to grow empathy for one another. This ultimately helps couples to understand how their negative interactions are mostly the result of fear of getting hurt or abandoned.

Couples Counselor

Joan Druckman, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Elk Grove

Couples therapy is my area of specialization and I love this part of my work. Many couples I see are in significant distress in their relationship and we work toward understanding what is causing and maintaining the distress. We will identify and explore the relationship patterns that lead to disconnection as the first step toward positive change and then work toward the development of greater intimacy, trust, safety and emotional connection. I have helped many couples who are on the brink of separation and divorce, as well as couples who are recovering from affairs, betrayals, and addiction.

Couples Counselor

Brian Kypta, MA, LMFT 82219

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Elk Grove

Are you experiencing distress in your relationship? Are you and your partner drifting further apart? Do you want to get back the love and trust you once had? Do you have recurring arguments that never get better? Marriage and intimate relationships have the potential for either great joy or great pain. Prolonged difficulties are not inevitable and not unsolvable. Contrary to appearances distress in relationships are often not caused by stressful issues, but by the way couples react to and deal with these issues. The process I use focuses on gently guiding your relationship towards greater joy, compassion and understanding. There is significant research on this approach and it has been found th....

Couples Counselor

Gerald Frye, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Elk Grove

Marriage and long-term relationships are exacting. They require hard work and great effort to do well. They start out with such promise. Exciting anticipation of being together is replaced with the need to be together to know where the other person is and what they are doing. The little things which were overlooked become occasions to vent the uncertainty and insecurity building between them. Fun and inspiring anticipation are replaced by angry fights and passionate making up. Misery functions as a drug tying them together. If this describes your relationship or your marriage, get help now to bring back the passion and joy which brought you together.

Couples Counselor

Joan Fellows, M.A. MFC

Licensed Marriage, Family, Individual Therapist

Within driving distance of Elk Grove

In my work with couples I focus on helping the couple create a safe and secure connection to one another. The couple will become aware of: 1. The pattern of communication between them that disrupts connection. 2. The underlying often vulnerable feelings that are not expressed. 3. What it is that triggers each person's fear, anger or hurt. 4. Learn patterns of communication that create a safe and secure connection. Conflict will always be a part of relationships. What is key to creating a nurturing safe connection with one another is how we handle these conflicts when they occur.

Couples Counselor

Michael Thaden, MS, LMFT, ATR-BC, CHT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Elk Grove

The “mechanics” of healthy healing relationships is often easier said than done. We all need a valuing mirror to validate our core experience, and this is where the healing work of therapy comes in. I emphasize a valuing approach to each person’s experience as a foundation for assisting couples in strengthening the “mechanics” of what we know facilitates healthy satisfying relationships. I am repeatedly impressed to the power of Compassion for supercharging the many brilliant tools made available to us by the likes of Harville Hendrix, John Gottman to get relationships back on track to promote the healing and growth are meant to fulfill in our personal and interpersonal relationships.

Whether or not your married, whether or not you are thinking about marriage, if you are in a relationship with another person, you are bound to occasionally have some communication issues or misunderstandings. However, when these communication issues or misunderstandings prevent us from having a happy and healthy relationship, we need to seek help before deciding to separate or divorce.

Every marriage has its ups and downs. In fact, it is not the absence of conflict that makes a difference, it is how you manage conflict when it does arise that determines whether a marriage will survive. Successful couples have learned HOW to manage their conflicts in a way that honors the needs of both partners.
