Couples Counselor

Bruce Levine, Ph.D., ABPP

Board Certified Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of La Palma

Dr. Levine is a clinical psychologist, not simply a "marriage counselor." He often works with couples whose difficulties involve such problems as disagreements about dealing with relatives, children and friends as well as arguments over money, sex and unreasonable expectations. His approach is relaxed and non-confrontational, within the framework of what is known as "cognitive couples therapy." The goal is to reduce unrealistic demands and help with acceptance of the limitations of being human within the context of a close interpersonal relationship. You will find Dr. Levine to be fair, open-minded and even-handed in working with the couples he sees. He will answer the phone personally.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

As a couples therapist, I focus our sessions on the health and growth of your relationship. Growing the "friendship" part of your relationship builds a foundation of improved romantic connection and partnership in all areas of your shared life. I have special training through the Gottman Institute to build a healthy relationship foundation and identify those behaviors that interfere with feelings of safety and connection in the home. If you want to improve your marriage, but your spouse or partner isn't willing to participate in counseling, contact me anyway! We can address a lot of needs and being the process of healing.

Are you struggling with your relationship? It is important to understand that is is more than just having good communication skills. That can help, but the real part of making a relationship work is understanding how your partner connects. A great relationship thrives when couples know how to respond to each other in the way the each need based on their attachment styles. I can help your relationship grow by helping you respond both physically and emotionally to your partner in they way they need it and in the way you need it to feel understood, safe, and connected.

Couples Counselor

Deborah Farnsworth, Psy.D.

Psychotherapist/Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of La Palma

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.

Couples Counselor

Sandy Hume, MA, LMFT, EMDR Certified

Licensed Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of La Palma

Relationships are the most important part of our lives, yet we are rarely prepared for the sophisticated nature of them. Conflict in your relationship is a natural result of two people with different perspectives. Without tools and experience to help us, we often misunderstand each other, fail to communicate effectively, and lose each other over time. Couple counseling in all phases of a relationship (dating, pre-marital, marriage separation or divorce) can provide a framework to safely explore your relationship issues, build in trust and understanding for each other, heal past wounds, and develop new tools and behaviors that will allow you to create a healthy, caring partnership.

Couples Counselor

Sue Shepard, MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of La Palma

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.

Couples Counselor

Curtis Miller, MFT, Psy.D., D. Min., M.A., M.Div.

Marriage and Family Therapists, Psychotherapy

Within driving distance of La Palma

I have worked with hundred's of couples over the last 20 years. Each couple is unique in their own right which means there is no one way to "fix" a problem. Our deepest longings and hopes emerge in a couples relationship. Oftentimes we are working out unmet needs and hopes carried forward from our early family relationships to our present couple relationship. Problems become increasingly complex and difficult to overcome when we don't know what these issues are all about. Couples remain stuck in conflict not because of what they know, but what they don't know or can't recognize. The work in therapy is to help couples recognize unhealthy patterns of relating and introduce novelty.

Couples Counselor

Lara Harris, M.A., M.F.T.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of La Palma

What do you hope for with your partner? In couples therapy, we improve communication, bridge differences, and promote change. People come to couples therapy at many stages of relationship: pre-marital counseling; navigating differences in time management; blending households and families; birth of a child; infidelity; divorce -- any time a couple is seeking to change behaviors that are causing pain. When a life stressor has begun to affect your partnership in an unwanted way, or if you are seeking to be heard differently by your partner, the skills you learn in couples therapy will create a more mutually satisfying relationship.

Couples Counselor

Julie Wells, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage, Family Therapist

Within driving distance of La Palma

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.

Registered Marriage Family Therapist intern

Within driving distance of La Palma

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.

Couples Counselor

Kristin Martinez, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of La Palma

Our relationships can be affected by so many factors. Unfortunately, our history as children and adolescents plays a major role in our romantic relationships. I work with couples who are struggling with intimacy, communication, and setting boundaries. I also do specialized work with partners of survivors of sexual abuse to build a greater understanding and compassion for their partner. I want each couple that comes to see me, to leave at the end of treatment feeling secure and safe in their relationship.
