Licensed Marriage, Family, Individual Therapist

In 95814 - Nearby to 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.

“I work to help couples understand and communicate with each other better. I help them uncover the complex and varied realities that impact them while moving them to a better and healthier relationship.” I have a passion for working with all ages, races, cultures and orientations. I incorporate mindfulness techniques, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) and methods by Satir and Minuchin into my sessions. My goal is to help couples to regain healthier ways of communicating and the ability to live with themselves as well as each other.

Joe Borders, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 95825 - Nearby to 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.

In Couples therapy I have completed Level Three Training in Gottman Method Couples Therapy and I use Gottman Method in therapy work. Gottman Method Couples Therapy is a structured, goal-oriented, scientifically-based therapy. Intervention strategies are based upon empirical data from Dr. Gottman’s three decades of research. This research shows us what actually works to help couples achieve a long-term healthy relationship. Also, in my practice, as needed, other therapy methods are employed as well.

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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? Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com to learn how! Or call 877-606-6161. DR. FLEMING'S NEW RELATIONSHIP/COUPLES INTENSIVES. www.kevinflemingphd.com/marriage-couples-retreats.php

It can happen to any of us...everyday stressors we bring home to get taken out on the wrong person - - the one person who means more to us than anything. It leaves you both feeling awful. Maybe you are not getting enough attention, conversation, physical intimacy. The focus of relationship counseling is to change the negative path to a positive one: learn to listen to each other, support each others needs and goals, be willing to compromise, make family and relationship decisions together, stop keeping score, reconnect, relax, and enjoy each other If you reading this, you have already begun to move forward. Please call me so I can help you work through your issues and reconnect.

Licensed Psychologist

In 95630 - Nearby to 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.

In 95661 - Nearby to Elk Grove.

Often, it's not that couples don't love each other. It's that they can't FIND each other. Emotions and life get in the way. If you are struggling with marriage or relationship concerns similar to these I can help: • You want to make it work, but don't know how. • Can't talk to each other; argue and insult each other. • Struggle with physical and emotional intimacy. • Feel alone or disconnected in your relationship. • Struggle with whether to stay or leave. • Are unsure if you can trust your partner/infidelity. • Have conflicts about parenting or family challenges. I work with married, dating, and premarital couples. Please allow me to help you find each other again.

Are you tired of having that same old fight? Do you feel stuck and unhappy? Relationships can be challenging. A strong and healthy marriage is vital to experiencing life at its best. Support from our mate strengthens us to meet the challenges of life. The listening ear of one who believes in us uplifts and motivates. A relationship filled with encouragement and affirmation rather than criticism and complaint inspires confidence. I can help solve the problem, end the tension, and find a new perspective.
