Couples Counselor

Meredith Hansen, Psy.D.

Psychologist

Within driving distance of Laguna Woods

Do you want to improve your relationship? Are you tired of arguing? Do you long for the days when you felt in love, on the same page, and connected? All relationships go through ups and downs and many couples doubt if they are "meant to be together" or "should try to making things work." In my experience, most couples who put effort into their relationship are able to improve their communication skills and rekindle the romance. It is possible for you and your spouse to enjoy one another again and effectively work through disagreements. I will help change the dynamics in your love life.

Couples Counselor

Betsy Walli, MS, PhD

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist 85860

Within driving distance of Laguna Woods

As an EFT therapist, I can help you and your partner to reconnect, escape from the repetitive cycles that keep you distant from each other, make sense of your emotions, improve the way you handle stress and conflict, and restore trust and safety with each other. There is no bad guy in your relationship. I'll help you see how your feelings and behaviors make perfect sense - and work with you both to create new, positive cycles that draw you closer together. EFT is very well supported by research showing that it significantly improves over 86% of distressed relationships, and importantly, that those benefits are still present two or three years after therapy is over.

Couples Counselor

Sue Shepard, MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Laguna Woods

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

Steven Harris, PhD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Laguna Woods

Even the best couples have long-term issues that they disagree about. Without communication, it is hard for even the most loving couples to last. I help couples take their conversations further in my office than they do at home. Eventually, you will learn to do it by yourself at home. I help couples learn to approach difficult subjects, discuss and resolve them. I help identifying hot spots, get more comfortable ways to communicate about them, learn to be more sensitive to each other, and perhaps more importantly, find your way through these conflicts so you can get on with the more satisfying, happy and enjoyable aspects of your lives together.

Couples Counselor

Piper Glasier, MSW, LCSW, Psy.D

Psychotherapist/Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of Laguna Woods

Our intimate relationships are the place we search for the greatest meaning and are, ironicaly, the field most rich in landmines. Whatever is not worked through in us will be activated in these most important relationships. Learning your own sensitivities and your own 'buttons' as you learn those of your partner can transform your relationship from one of hostility to one of deep support and love. I have experienced this transformation firsthand many times and it is a privilege to see relationships restored and rebuilt on a healthy, solid foundation.

Being understood and respected is the foundation for a healthy and loving relationship. This can happen when we decide to truly listen to each other. As Author Dr. David Augsburger puts it “Being listened to is so close to being loved that most people cannot tell the difference.” If you'd like to repair your relationship and move toward growth and healing then please call me for a free consultation at 714-326-6578

Couples Counselor

Terence Cochran, Ph.D., MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist, Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of Laguna Woods

I have been helping couples heal their relationships for more than 29 years. Effective therapy includes developing a clear understanding of the different family "cultures" couples have been raised in, and a clear perspective of how early hurts and pain can be re-triggered by the current marital or couple relationship. Communication skills are essential for working through chronic or immediate pain a couple is experiencing together--and empathy for the each other's perspective is at the heart of those skills. It is also essential to know when a relationship has the potential to open up and grow, and when development together is no longer currently possible due to abuse or excessive hostility

Couples Counselor

Dr. Lynne, Ph.D., L.M.F.T.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Laguna Woods

If your marriage is in serious trouble, or if you just want to make it better ... don't wait. I offer a unique marriage counseling program designed to get to know your partner on a deeper level and get beyond old hurts. Homework is given weekly. A professional working with couples will help first to clarify the main issue brought to the first session. Usually there is much more going on between two people, and a therapist will help the two dig alittle deeper. Maybe old anger is a roadblock....or resentments. Unforgiveness is a big stummbling block. You will decide what you want to change, improve upon, and goals you wish to obtain for your relationship.

Catherine Wheeler, MFT

Dr.

Within driving distance of Laguna Woods

Affordable couples workshops are offered once a month! Couples want to raise their relationship to a HIGHER LEVEL OF LOVE! Today there are tools to guide couples to improve communication, learn how to be a team, resolve problems without escalating, and regain their sexual desire, attraction and passion, when they both feel heard, supported and close. When relationships become stuck at a lower level of love couples lost desire and attraction, can't communicate with depth, and feel like adversaries on opposite teams! We build our whole lives on love, why settle! Dr. Wheeler has written several books (on amazon) that teach couples tools for heart-centered love!

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Let's face it, relationships can be very difficult and confusing at times. I believe that it IS possible to have a satisfying and dynamic relationship in today's world, if we're willing to do the work. I help my clients to learn healthier ways to express themselves individually and to provide understanding and compassion for each other. I do this by teaching and practicing more effective listening and communication skills. Clients learn to focus on themselves as opposed to pointing the finger at their partner. My clients are continually excited about how these changes have transformed their once difficult relationship into a much more satisfying and fulfilling dynamic.

Most couples come in seeking better communication.

I also work successfully with many couples who experience infidelity and are seeking to re-build their relationship.

Marriage counseling can be the best thing you can do for your relationship, whether you’re having marriage problems or not. Either way, the skills learned in marriage counseling can help you find happiness and satisfaction with your spouse. If you are having significant problems, and you want marriage counseling to work, you need to be willing to put everything into it. You cannot shut down and refuse to participate because you “already made your decision.” Give your marriage a chance. Give yourself and your spouse a chance to be happy.
