Couples Counselor

Chloe Lankshear, M.Ed, Ed.S, MFTI

Marriage & Family Therapist Registered Intern

Within driving distance of Foster City

I focus my practice on supporting families (or key individuals within the family) facing issues related to separation, divorce, co-parenting and mixed/blended families. I work with couples who are going through the processes of separation and divorce, supporting them with being able to co-parent successfully. I can also work with parents as they re-partner, creating new blended/mixed families.

Couples Counselor

June Timberlake, MA, LMFT, DCEP

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Foster City

I teach couples constructive paths through the inevitable relationship conflicts and challenges we all experience. By coaching them through the researched base principals and practices for creating successful relationships, I support them in achieving their goals of creating loving companionship and respect for themselves and for each other. And as a couple embodies these relationships tools they become empowered to prevent or work through most relationship challenges going forward.

Couples Counselor

Bryan Newman, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Foster City

I approach couples counseling from a collaborative stance that offers tangible results from the first session. My work empowers couples in distress to deeply understand and overcome the painful cycles of interaction between partners, as well as to address and heal these cycles' root causes. From there I help couples nurture and develop ever greater degrees of trust, intimacy and love between each other. I am passionate about my work with couples and believe deeply in the healing power of effective therapy.

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Foster City

There are countless models of healthy romantic relationships, from monogamous to polyamorous, and unique variations between partners. The scripts for dating and longterm relationships of our parents’ generations may not be applicable to your relationship, and there is no formal education in how to be a good partner or how to identify unhealthy relationships. But there is psychological research that shows that effective communication, emotional openness, intimacy, and other factors contribute to healthy relationships. Creating these conditions are skills that can be learned. I practice brief humanistic and emotion-focused therapy (EFT) to help my LGBTQ and hetero clients learn these skills.

Couples Counselor

Maren Gleason, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Foster City

I am certified in Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy which is based on 30 years of research into what works for couples. 90% of couples who go through Emotionally Focused Therapy report an improvement in their relationship. Sometimes it can seem like the same argument happens over and over, even though the topic might seem different. Often partners don't feel that they are understood or heard. I help couples understand, see, and hear their own and their partner's more vulnerable feelings which underlie the stuck pattern of arguments. The closeness you used to have can be regained and is often improved as you understand and know each other better than you ever did before

Couples Counselor

Sandra Amat, MFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Foster City

I view relationship as a vehicle to support greater deepening and healing. It is in relationship that we see our deepest vulnerability, insecurity and unprocessed wounding. Where do we get more triggered than in our primary relationship? I believe that sharing the attitude of using the relationship as a vehicle to heal, allows couples to get on the same page as they work through their issues. It becomes less about who will win this argument and more about how the couple can support each other in healing. Together we can explore relationship dynamics and work toward creating a supportive environment for growth, transformation and healing.

Couples Counselor

Jason Esswein, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Foster City

Couples counseling is helpful when two individuals want to deepen their connection (even when things in their relationship are "fine") as well as to help resolve conflicts that have not been addressed or have not been successfully addressed in the past. Top concerns usally involve money, parenting, sex, and in-laws. Improving general communication and one's ability to manage their feelings help to resolve the issues above with love, respect, and efficiency.

Couples Counselor

Cheryl Deaner, LMFT

Cheryl Deaner, Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Foster City

Couples come together through great love but often, this love can be slowly lost in the day-to-day work of living busy lives and taking each other for granted. Then when a crisis hits a couple realizes just how far they have drifted from each other. Just think if it this way. If you had a beautiful new car but never took care of it, never changed it's oil or brought it in for a tune up, how long would that car last? Couples often neglect obvious problems in their relationships because they just don't think to look under the hood. Honest and safe communication is the first step to finding your way back to each other. I any of this rings true for you, please contact me today.

Couples Counselor

Kristina Schasker, M.A., MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Foster City

I specialize in working with couples struggling with a wide range of issues. From problems with communication and feeling connected, to parenting, affair recovery and just learning not to take the relationship for granted anymore, therapy can make a big difference. Like any other living thing, a partnership is a dynamic, growing thing that needs attention and to be nurtured and cared for. Couples therapy is an effective way to learn how to identify and express your own needs at the same time hearing, understanding, and meeting your partners needs. I have helped many couples overcome seemingly impossible challenges and go on to build happy, healthy, more satisfying relationships that last!

Couples Counselor

Jennifer Twardowski, MA, MFTi

Holistic Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Foster City

Couples therapy can be both scary and difficult, but it can be an essential component in creating a relationship dynamic that can last a lifetime. In working with couples, I use methodologies from both the Gottman Method and Emotionally Focused Therapy. In using these methods, couples are better able to understand their relationship dynamic, better understand issues or potential issues and discover ways to better work in relationship to one another.

Couples Counselor

Daniel Davis, M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Foster City

The feeling of falling in love can feel so wonderful and our life can seem full of promise. As time goes by, we must face the reality of our lives and the person whom we love. We may believe, "I have fallen out of love." The key to healthy intimate relationships is to calm ourselves internally as individuals and connect with our pleasant feelings; this is healthy emotional regulation. The better that I regulate my emotions as an individual, the stronger I can create a bond with my partner or spouse. A secure bond is the foundation of a relationship that is both satisfying and co-creative. This is the promise of love that we glimpsed when we initially fell in love.
