It can happen to any of us...everyday stressors we bring home to get taken out on the wrong person - - the one person who means more to us than anything. It leaves you both feeling awful. Maybe you are not getting enough attention, conversation, physical intimacy. The focus of relationship counseling is to change the negative path to a positive one: learn to listen to each other, support each others needs and goals, be willing to compromise, make family and relationship decisions together, stop keeping score, reconnect, relax, and enjoy each other If you reading this, you have already begun to move forward. Please call me so I can help you work through your issues and reconnect.

Couples therapy often triggers roadblocks in communication. In being shaped by prior relationships, we create various meaning from our experiences as well as receiving and giving instructions on how to live. When we form new relationships of any kind, this gets challenged; coming together and finding a path forward that celebrates all involved is the key to success. My specialty is interracial couples; regardless of if you both come from different backgrounds, the goal is to create shared meaning that is co-constructed. I can help with this process.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Clinical Psychology Doctor

Available for Online Therapy

In my Couples Counseling work I help partners build on the strengths of their relationship while we work together to create new skills for communicating and solving problems. My approach is collaborative and I teach each partner to learn how to listen and hear what the other is expressing and needing as well as ways to be heard and understood better. I provide a safe place where difficult problems can be discussed and solutions explored and practiced so that couples can better resolve ongoing problems.

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?

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 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.

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

In 95816 - Nearby to La Riviera.

Nothing means more to you than your relationship with your partner. It's why it hurts so much when you try to get close and they shut down or find some other way to pull away. Or maybe you feel suffocated, criticized, and not enough because it feels like too much is wanted from you. You're not alone. I get how important this person is to you, and want to help you to recognize your stuck push/pull pattern so that you can feel satisfied and understood in your relationship. This is also true when there are more serious problems, like affairs or addictions. As you learn what motivates you as well as your partner, you can again renew the bond of this most important relationship.

Whether or not your married, whether or not you are thinking about marriage, if you are in a relationship with another person, you are bound to occasionally have some communication issues or misunderstandings. However, when these communication issues or misunderstandings prevent us from having a happy and healthy relationship, we need to seek help before deciding to separate or divorce. My couples counseling can help you identify the causes of relationship dissatisfaction and find ways to help you communicate and listen better.

Often, it's not that couples don't love each other. It's that they can't FIND each other. Emotions and life get in the way. If you are struggling with marriage or relationship concerns similar to these I can help: • You want to make it work, but don't know how. • Can't talk to each other; argue and insult each other. • Struggle with physical and emotional intimacy. • Feel alone or disconnected in your relationship. • Struggle with whether to stay or leave. • Are unsure if you can trust your partner/infidelity. • Have conflicts about parenting or family challenges. I work with married, dating, and premarital couples. Please allow me to help you find each other again.

This does NOT have to be you. I have been a counselor for over 20 years and I have worked with many couples who were struggling and did not know what to do. Give your relationship a chance to get better. Give me a call at 916-847-8053 or schedule an appointment now: https://kim-mclaughlin.clientsecure.me/client_portal

Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

In 95630 - Nearby to La Riviera.

Couples counseling is where I really shine! I am able to understand both men and women's needs and perspectives on troubling issues and translate them into words the other can understand. Men often think couples counseling means they are going to be told they're wrong and broken. Men aren't broken - they just haven't been taught effective relationship skills. Men tend not to go around raising their sons talking about feelings, emotions, or deep meanings. I show men how to retain their sense of masculinity while learning to speak in a language their wives or girlfriends can appreciate. The magic of couples counseling happens when partners see the meanings behind their partners' words/actions.

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.

Much of the couples work I do is in understanding the core issues that are causing problems in the relationship. Often things like differences in expectations, problems with communication, issues related to intimacy, and difficulties related to trust and safety can cause a friction. My goal is to help you get to the root of the issue and discover new more effective ways of showing up with your partner. Positive change is possible.

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.

Without conflict, couples do not achieve intimacy. The challenge is helping you and your partner learn how to have healthy conflict that leads to intimacy, rather than destructive conflict that destroys the relationship. While I work with all couples, I specialize in working with neuro-diverse couples. I usually start with helping you learn ground rules for being able to have safe, constructive, healthy conflict to reduce and eliminate destructive relational patterns. I also use Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) to help you reconnect, learn healthy communication skills, rekindle the flame that you once had, and start talking to each other again. If you are willing to work, I am here for you!

Couples counseling can help when your are having difficulties in your relationship. Whether you are in a relationship, looking for pre-marital counseling, living together, or married, therapy can help you with your connection, communication, your ability to reduce conflicts, reduce resentments, and restore passion and intimacy. It can help your relationship if even just one of you come without your partner. When one person makes shifts in the relationship it can make positive changes as well. Many couples wait longer than necessary hoping the problems will just go away. Don't wait until it's too late. Get help and change the course of your relationship.

Alternative and Integrated Practitioner

Available for Online Therapy

How is it that we are so clearly built for relationships, but also so bad at them? Often couples crave intimacy and connection from their partner but feel like there is junk in the way that keeps them separated from that connection. Both members of the couple keep walls up and are self-protective. This makes them quick to respond to slights, to hold on to the pain caused by past slights, and live with the anticipation of the next slight. As a relationship coach, I work with couples to identify the typical patterns that are present in their relationship to find connection, a space to be vulnerable, and a place to be truly seen.
