Relationship therapy is the process of counseling the parties of human relationship in an effort to recognize, and to better manage or reconcile differences and the repeating of unhealthy patterns within a relationship. Couples therapy enhances insight and is an amazing self discovery process. In therapy, I encourage an open and nurturing safe environment to help couples unlock deep rooted issues,mast traumas that have been holding back the growth of the relationship

Conflict and discord often are a factor of poor communication and feelings that both partners must agree in order to be compatible. This kind of thinking can result in angry standoffs that lead to a feeling that in order for one to win the their must lose. I teach couples how to communicate and understand that difference in needs does not mean incompatibility. Working towards win-win solutions can enhance your marital satisfaction and increase intimacy. I enjoy working with couples and have a good success rate. Let me help you find happiness in your marriage.

You may have high conflict in your relationship or just feel like you are "growing apart" from your partner. Couples counseling can help you and your partner communicate on a "level playing field." As a therapist, I meet with you and your partner at the same time; therefore providing both of you with the opportunity to communicate in a calm, safe environment. Finally, I do not "take sides" in your relationship. I am an advocate for you as a couple.

Couples come in all sorts of configurations, from Mommy/baby, to employer/employee, to parent/child/adoles. and of course husbands/partners/wives. Each of these couples are tremendously intimate and are often the very place we act out, feel grave disappointments and experiences some of our highest joys. This can be an optimum place of growth for both participants. It takes courage, honesty and a willingness to look inward and outward.

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.

Licensed Marriage, Family Therapist

7545 Irvine Center Drive, Suite 200, Irvine, California 92618 | 949-391-3505

Every couple has moments of disconnection, but if the gaps are getting wider between you and it seems as if you no longer have anything in common, I can help. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), a proven effective short-term therapy that helps couples remember why they fell in love in the first place. As human beings, we all need of love, affection, and intimacy but sometimes the way we go about getting it can actually create more distance. Our partner only hears the anger, not seeing the anxiety underneath because we fear losing them. If you are wanting to to feel safe, happy and fulfilled again in your romantic relationship, I can help.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

I enjoy working with couples in the areas of communication, life transition(s), intimacy, and love attachment. Each couple has a unique dynamic within them, where psychotherapy allows for deeper awareness into the individual and collective couple's relationship around wounds, pain, or possible trauma. The process offers a place and space to heal, forgive, and grow through love.

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?

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Couples have come to see me for a variety of reasons throughout the years, but I find that no matter what the presenting problem may be, being able to effectively communicate with each other is vital to restoring the relationship. Often couples have a completely different style of relating to one another and resolving conflict. I work with couples to better understand their partner and I help each person to communicate in a way that they can finally be heard. It doesn’t matter what you are fighting about if the other person can’t hear what you are saying. Call 714-751-0888 so I can help you express yourself more effectively so you can stop the fighting and start the healing process.
