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.

Couples Counselor

Deborah Cohen, MFT, MPH,CHT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Elk Grove

I use a combination of tried and true couples communication techniques to help couples create and build effective communication into their relationship. I also spend time on exploring sexual compatability and communication, when the couple wants their sexual lintimacy enhanced. IF there is lack of desire or an imbalance of desires, we address the roots of this.With couples who come for pre-marital counseling, we focus on communication skills and on common needs and wants the couple have for their impending marriage and family unit. We also look at any red flags that are showing up in the relationship.

Couples Counselor

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

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?

Patricia Temple MS

Within driving distance of Elk Grove

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.

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

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.

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.

Orville Easterly, D. Min, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Elk Grove

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. Choose today to begin building the relationship you desire.

Couples Counselor

Jon Holmes, M.Div., M.A., L.M.F.T.

Licensed Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Elk Grove

I specialize in working with couples that have trauma, addiction and mental health concerns impacting the relationship. Often relationship difficulties are a symptom of another area that is needing attention, compassion and care. Couples counseling can be a frustrating experience when progress is hampered by other factors that are not easily seen or considered obvious. This is a very important part of effective couples work and often provides earlier positive results because the issues harming the relationship are brought to the surface and compassionately addressed.
