I have a passion (pun intended) for working with couples. Dating couples trying to see if they are a good fit. Engaged couples looking for tools to start their marriage right.

A desire for connection, love, and communication. It is my to desire to help you achieve it.

Couples therapy involves working with partners who are in a committed relationship. Individuals attend couples therapy to learn how to work through their differences, communicate better, problem-solve challenges in the relationship, work through parenting differences, improve their intimacy or their overall satisfaction with the relationship. Couples therapy involves assessing the strengths and weaknesses in the relationship, formulating goals and working diligently toward attaining those goals to establish and maintain healthy, loving and exciting romantic relationships.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of La Jolla

If you are feeling like you’ve lost hope for your relationship, part of my job is to hold the hope for you. I passionately believe that there are very few problems that can’t be resolved when both partners are willing to work on the relationship. Even when you feel there is no way that you could regain what you once had, couples counseling can help you find something new and maybe even better. I practice Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and I welcome the opportunity to help you both build a stronger relationship. In addition to regular weekly sessions, I offer special 3-hour sessions to help “jump-start” the healing.

Couples Counselor

Thomas Schmierer, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of La Jolla

He thinks it is her fault and she thinks it is his. Some couples blame, accuse, and criticize. Others live separate lives, almost as distant friends living in the same house. Sometimes someone cheats on the other or goes off alone to view pornography, leaving the unresolved conflicts of the relationship in the background. A fearful lover may either hide in some way or try to desperately control the other. If you are on the brink of splitting up, but not quite ready to totally give up, then now is the crucial time to seek help. Thomas Schmierer, M.A., helps couples address the fears of intimacy that are keeping the relationship weak. Your relationship can be fixed!

Couples Counselor

Ronald Reichard, MA, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of La Jolla

My approach to couples and marital therapy includes several components which are: relationship enhancement skills, communication and conflict resolution strategies, increased awareness of relationship needs and empathy development. It has been my expericence that when couples are committed to improving their relationship and apply the tools taught in therapy, they find that communication improves significantly and appear more motivated to meet the needs of their partner. As each person committs to meeting the needs of their partner it tends to generate good feelings and respectful behavior bewteen the partners, which can result in greater relatinship satisfaction.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist - LMFT #79759

Within driving distance of La Jolla

I am an Emotionally Focused Couples Therapist (EFT) which is the most empirically validated and proven couples therapy to date - helping couples go from distress to a more secure, lasting love, which after a 2 year follow-up, couples report a happier and more fulfilling relationship. I help couples understand their painful disconnection that creates distance and frustration, learn to be more clear in their communication and needs, helping couples begin to heal and repair rifts to bring about a deeper felt sense of security within their relationship. I desire couples to experience with one another that they matter, that they are cared for, they are unconditionally loved by their partner.

Sue Cates, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of La Jolla

Humans experience the world through relationships with others. We are made to connect! When connections with our significant others are fractured, it can impact our mood, our health, our work and family relationships. We fear being abandoned, alone, and a disappointment to those important to us. Emotionally Focused Therapy can help us to reconnect, feel cared for, and to feel loved and valued again by our partners. You do not need to remain stuck in repetitive cycles of isolation and pain. Whatever your partnership arrangement, you are welcome. Things can change for the better! Maybe you are a couple on the brink of divorce. Discernment counseling can help get clarity on the path to take.

Couples Counselor

Fredric Seldin, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of La Jolla

Long lasting relationships that are based on mutual love and respect do not develop automatically even though the couple may have initially come together based on a strong and intense romantic bond. Rather, long term relationship success requires that each partner develop enhanced communication skills that permit conflict resolution and cooperation in dealing with the inevitable stresses that couples have to face over the course of their relationship. In addition, each partner must be able to recognize his/her part in initiating and/or perpetuating conflict in the relationship.

Couples Counselor

Cara Allen, MSW, MM, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of La Jolla

I specialize in assisting couples navigate times of crisis and life transition. A cancer diagnosis, tragedy, empty-nest, loss of job, illness, or death of a loved one can shake even the strongest couple to the core. Not knowing how to support one's partner, the desire to "fix" the situation, or feeling frustrated and misunderstood can all be helped with focused support.

Scott Wood, M.A.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of La Jolla

Among human relationships, marriage can be a source of great joy and connection. Often over time, negative cycles and patterns of interaction can develop that create pain and disconnection in the relationship. Adult love relationships are about creating secure attachment and a connection that allows each partner to feel emotionally safe. Through the counseling process, I assist couples in identifying and overcoming negative cycles, healing from past hurts, and reconnecting emotionally. I also work with couples looking for healing from infidelity. Even very distressed couples can reconnect and restore trust and emotional security. I also provide pre-marital and enrichment counseling.

Couples Counselor

Adrienne Levy, MA LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within driving distance of La Jolla

Most couples experience conflict because they do not know how to take care of themselves, and regulate their own emotions when they are upset (angry or afraid). Many couples need to learn how to listen effectively, for meaning, not just the content of words. Many people need to learn how to communicate emotions as feelings ("I feel ...sad, angry, jealous, insecure...."), and thoughts/beliefs as thoughts, not feelings. ("I think you..."; "I believe that...your kids, mother, boss..." versus "I feel that you don't care"). Most people can uncover what they need to change, learn the new skills to replace old communication styles, and discover richer, more satisfying relationships.
