Couples Counselor

John Snyder, Psy.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Millbrae

I help couples move their relationship forward through difficult times, into a place of support, love, and mutual understanding. As a psychologist with over a decade of experience working with couples, I have built up considerable respect for the concept of multiple points of view. The benefit of couples therapy is that you have a therapist who is on your relationship's side. Too often what one partner intends to convey, is not how it is received by the other. I am particularly skilled at helping partners phrase and ask for things in ways that the other person can hear and digest. I am happy to speak with you over the phone for a free initial consultation. Give me a call today!

Your relationship used to be full of love and laughter. Maybe now you're at a point of crisis where you're considering moving out & call it all off. You've been trying to work things out. Maybe you saw a therapist who didn't seem to know how to help, or you've had bad experiences with therapists in the past. Therapy does cost money, but it's far less expensive than a divorce, new living arrangement & the considerable pain & suffering of ending a relationship. You owe it to yourself & your partner to to make an appt. with me today. http://matt-lindgren-oakland-marriage-therapist.com/

Theo Reynolds, RC

Relationship Counselor

Within driving distance of Millbrae

One of my main specialities is couples counseling. I work with couples of all varieties - not just romantic couples but any combination of two people who need help with their relationship; sisters, father and daughter, cousins, business partners. I also work with other types of couples such as gay and lesbian couples, transgender couples, polyamorous couples etc. I enjoy this work immensely and have helped many couples find more closeness, safety, compassion, ease and care for each other. About half of my clients are couples so I have a great deal of experience. No matter how old and deep the problems are in your relationship, I can help you finally move past these issues for good.

Couples Counselor

Sean Faulkner, MFTi

Marriage and Family Therapist Intern

Within driving distance of Millbrae

Couples typically do not seek counseling until there is a major break down in their relationship and hope to find a counselor to "fix" their problems. Resolving your issues is not my goal as a counselor--my goal is to help you and your partner learn and develop new ways to communicate which will allow you two to resolve your own issues together as a couple, both during and after therapy. I aim to help you and your partner develop long-term skills which you can use for years to come.

Couples Counselor

Robert Nemerovski, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Millbrae

Couples often come to counseling when they have difficulty talking with each other or resolving an issue. Some find that a familiar struggle or behavioral pattern “dynamic” comes up over and over again. Commonly, tensions and emotions can run high, and each person may feel some combination of distant, resentful, sad, hurt, worried, or angry. Couples counseling is a special opportunity to understand these patterns and explore new communication, behaviors, and connection. I help facilitate a more productive conversation in a safe environment and offer exercises and other resources to practice from home. I welcome and provide couples counseling to people from all backgrounds.

Marriage Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Millbrae

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.

Couples Counselor

Dietmar Brinkmann, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Millbrae

Most couples come to therapy because they find it hard to communicate with each other. They want to resolve endless fights and avoid getting caught in fruitless arguments. When feelings are raw it can be so hard to feel close and end the negative cycle of blame and defensive withdrawal. In couple therapy, I help you feel safe to express yourself. You and your partner will learn to listen to each other with compassion and grow a shared understanding of what makes your relationship work. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy, an approach proven by extensive research to strengthen the emotional bond that is the heart of every relationship.

Marriage & Family Therapist Registered Intern

I focus my practice on supporting families (or key individuals within the family) facing issues related to separation, divorce, co-parenting and mixed/blended families. I work with couples who are going through the processes of separation and divorce, supporting them with being able to co-parent successfully. I can also work with parents as they re-partner, creating new blended/mixed families.

We practice Emotionally Focused Therapy for Couples (EFT). This model believes that we are all hard wired for attachment and connection. We need love and security and how we deal with this vulnerability is what determines how we are in relationships. When love doesn’t work, it hurts, and secure emotional attachment is the cure. We facilitate a couples development of a secure attachment by helping them come together and break the negative patterns of insecurity. After the negative patterns of communication, behavior, and perceptions have identified and broken, we then help the couple to create new emotional experiences that help to replace the old out-dated patterns and solve there problems.

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

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.

Couples Counselor

Alex Hoeplinger Patten, M.A., LMFT

LMFT 98700

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.

Couples Counselor

Jeff Cohen, MA, MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Millbrae

I work with a lot of couples, and have helped them learn to relate with more empathy, effective communication and positive regard. I'll help you to better understand each other, and to manage conflict in a more productive and supportive way. Though we are by nature drawn to be in relationship, there are now well understood reasons—rooted in our neurobiology and our attachment patterns (which I'll explain)—that often make functioning in relationships difficult. In addition to helping you understand the source of these difficulties, I'll guide you in using that knowledge to create a more intimate, enriching and secure partnership, one based on the principle that you are in each other's care.
