Zak Forrest, LMFT
Couples Counselor

Zak Forrest, LMFT

Licensed Psychotherapist

In 94102 - Nearby to Lucas Valley Marinwood.

Issues that can be worked on in couples counseling often stem from conscious and unconscious assumptions and expectations that each person has about the other. The individual sees the other through the lens of their upbringing and relationship history. I help couples unpack the complex and often tangled web of how each person is understood and misunderstood in the eyes of the other. In doing so, each partner can have a deeper understanding of themselves and their partner, generating compassion, clearer communication, and emotional space from pressing issues.

Marriage Family Therapist

In 94706 - Nearby to Lucas Valley Marinwood.

Are you trapped in destructive cycles of anger and blame? Have you lost trust because of an affair? Are you avoiding your partner or feeling disengaged? Is it hard for you to have real conversations or solve problems together? I will help you untangle your painful negative cycles of communication and build new stronger connections. You can learn to have power over that cycle by learning your triggers and undoing them. You will learn about the roots of the cycle learned in early relationships. Call, text or email me to set an appointment.

Bryan Newman, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 94704 - Nearby to Lucas Valley Marinwood.

I approach couples counseling from a collaborative stance that offers tangible results from the first session. My work empowers couples in distress to deeply understand and overcome the painful cycles of interaction between partners, as well as to address and heal these cycles' root causes. From there I help couples nurture and develop ever greater degrees of trust, intimacy and love between each other. I am passionate about my work with couples and believe deeply in the healing power of effective therapy.

Timothy Locke, Ph.D., Pastoral Counselor

Napa Interfaith Counseling

In 94559 - Nearby to Lucas Valley Marinwood.

I work with couples of all kinds, and in all stages of relationship. I help couples focus on the "We" in their relationship, develop strengths and improve their communication. I also help couples pause behavior that is having a negative impact and develop new perspectives and behaviors that nourish their connection. Whether couples are married or unmarried or considering marriage, whether they have been together a few months or many years, I help them make their relationship a more loving, less painful and more enjoyable place to be.

Sebastian Earl, MA
Couples Counselor

Sebastian Earl, MA

LMFT

In 94115 - Nearby to Lucas Valley Marinwood.

I focus on authenticity in my practice, and for me this is especially helpful when it comes to couples work. That most problems in relationships come from people being afraid to fully reveal themselves to their partners, for fear they won't be fully accepted and loved. And that by working on open and honest communication tools, and how to really share the depth of their beings with each other, we can create relationships of real intimacy that are healthy and nourishing.

Todd Harvey, MFT
Couples Counselor

Todd Harvey, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 94705 - Nearby to Lucas Valley Marinwood.

It really hurts when the person you love is focused on "being right", rather than really getting you! Does your relationship create a deep pain or numbness in your heart? When we start to believe that our LEGITIMATE needs for connection will not be adequately met with our partner, it is easy to focus on our personal needs (at the expense of our partner's). A NORMAL human response to this is: nagging, petty repetitive fights, silent-treatments, numbing out, outbursts, being condescending, focusing on being right (rather than really listening). Using EFT, I FOCUS ON SHIFTING THE CULTURE OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP from its current negative painful cycles into being a safe place for both of you.

Elizabeth Hayes, Psy.D, MFT
Couples Counselor

Elizabeth Hayes, Psy.D, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 94110 - Nearby to Lucas Valley Marinwood.

I work with couples that are struggling to connect emotionally, have issues with communication, and want to create new relational dynamics that increase their connection. My approach is warm and collaborative and I work hard to carefully listen to each person to provide the therapeutic interventions necessary to increase understanding, communication, mutual interest, curiosity, and awareness. In my experience couples enter treatment with varying degrees of ambivalence and desire for change. I work hard to create a safe environment to explore each persons concerns and desires so we can better collaborate towards working together to generate movement and change.

Esther Lerman, M.A., M.F.T.
Couples Counselor

Esther Lerman, M.A., M.F.T.

Marriage and Family Therapist

In 94618 - Nearby to Lucas Valley Marinwood.

Couples therapy can be intimidating to start. There's a lot of anxiety that comes up for people about things getting even worse or one person being labeled as the problem or, worse yet, that it will lead to breaking up. But I have treated a great many couples over 25 years and that is almost never what happens. Although, yes, the process is sometimes very painful, I never "take sides" and blame one person in the couple and usually the couple feels better after the session. I have seen people come in with problems that made them feel like enemies and after therapy they feel like friends and lovers again. Do call for couples therapy now and don't let the problems keep on getting worse.

Jennifer Hampton, LCSW
Couples Counselor

Jennifer Hampton, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 94559 - Nearby to Lucas Valley Marinwood.

I believe that often we choose the partner we need in order to "push our buttons" to do the most transformative inner work, and learning how to use our relationship effectively to support that work in each other heals old wounds and builds a strong foundation of trust. My approach draws from Positive Psychology and the work of Gottman and Hendricks.

Jill Kane, Psy.D.
Couples Counselor

Jill Kane, Psy.D.

Psychologist

In 94901 - Nearby to Lucas Valley Marinwood.

Each couple has a unique dynamic. I work hard to ensure that both individuals in the couple are heard and understood so that the couple feels safe to work on their communication goals and meet their intimacy needs. Relationships change as life circumstances change - new couples, couples considering marriage, addition of children to the dynamic, individual job challenges, death of parents, financial difficulties all impact the health of the couple. Come discuss the issues and improve the relationship bond.

Glenn Fleisch, Ph.D., MFT
Couples Counselor

Glenn Fleisch, Ph.D., MFT

Licensed psychotherapist

In 94590 - Nearby to Lucas Valley Marinwood.

As we know, romantic relationships can bring out the best and worst of us. Working with couples involves being open to identifying and experiencing those parts of ourselves that get triggered. In this way, we allow the relationship to be an opportunity for working through patterns that block intimacy and develop new ways of being that deepen communication, allow for more honest, open expression and enable each partner to be a healing agent for the other. This is a pathway of healing and growth- a vehicle for enhancing capacity for love (including self-love) and soul connection.

LMFT 98700

In 94704 - Nearby to Lucas Valley Marinwood.

Relationships are the most complicated, yet most rewarding things in life. They make us feel excited, happy, and high on life one minute while maintaining the ability bring us pain, frustration, and emotional distress the next. For all the beauty that comes with companionship and commitment, there are also times when you have to sacrifice things you may not want to for the sake of the relationship. Furthermore, maintaining one’s own identity while growing with another person can be a lot to manage. I help couples come to a much more meaningful understanding of how each person is showing up in the relationship so that they can make healthier choices towards a more fulfilling future together.
