Philip Kolba, MA LMHC NCC

Psychotherapist

In 90026 - Nearby to Monterey Park.

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.

I want my clients to feel safe, understood, respected, and better able to deal with relationship issues. Couples counseling can help you better understand and respond to each other's needs, while maintaining your own unique identity. It will promote balance, clarity and give you the confidence to make important decisions. I offer support and stabilization during a crisis, and provide you with practical tools to improve intimacy, and replace conflict with more effective communication.

Marriage and Family Therapists, Psychotherapy

In 91107 - Nearby to Monterey Park.

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 90755 - Nearby to Monterey Park.

Is this you? All we do is fight! It seems like we never hear each other and neither of us listens anymore! It is so frustrating I do not want to come home and try. I have been successfully helping couples to develop the tools necessary to communicate effectively for more than 20 years. Having disagreements is not unusual. Learning how to resolve disagreements is a key element to healthy relationships. Conflict resolution is about learning to fight fairly by listening in an atmosphere of Respect, Trust, Safety and love and not placing my desire to be right over the relationship.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 91101 - Nearby to Monterey Park.

According to a leading couple's therapist, David Schnarch, differentiation is a crucial aspect of intimacy for couples. My approach to couples therapy emphasizes the importance of differentiation in couple relationships. I believe that a healthy couple is one where individuals can share deeply personal parts of their selves with their partner, while also being secure enough to handle however their partner responds. This approach also incorporates exploration of attachment style and intergenerational relationships. I also incorporate aspects of Gottman therapy when treating couples and helping them to enhance intimacy and differentiation.

Living with another person can be difficult, whether you are married or considering marriage. When communication breaks down, it can be hard to understand another person's point of view. Couple counseling with a neutral professional can be very helpful. The most common issues concern finances and sex, including infidelity, sexual dysfunctions, sexual addiction, and divorce. As a psychologist, Dr. Clark works with people from all cultures and backgrounds, including alternative lifestyles.

Couples Counselor

Elvina Lui, M.A., MFT

California Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 91103 - Nearby to Monterey Park.

Helping couples is my specialty! I feel such a passion for this because I know how great it is to be in a supportive, fulfilling, and intimate relationship. I also know how awful it can be when the relationship is not working--feeling unhappy, dissatisfied, neglected, attacked, disrespected, betrayed. I have been helping couples improve their relationship and regaining intimacy for a number of years. For some, it means decreasing the verbal fights by talking through past hurts, forgiving, and rebuilding trust. For others, it is rekindling the fire of passion and falling in love all over again. Whatever the case, I can help your relationship get to where you want it to be!

We have been sold a bad story about love. The truth is perfect is the enemy of the good in love and even in the good there are rough patches.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 90024 - Nearby to Monterey Park.

Couples are frequently referred to me by current and former clients, colleagues, and other healthcare professionals including physicians from several disciplines. More often than not, couples self-refer for help because one or both are feeling stuck and in pain. Sometimes there is an accumulation of hurts that have piled up. You need to talk about it. There are many benefits to couples counseling: enhanced communication, learning how to resolve conflict, creating more trust, growing intimacy, identifying triggers that can cause upsets, learning how to deal with the inevitable challenges that even the very best of relationships experience, and learning how to love at deeper levels.

A couple doesn't need to be married to experience struggles in their relationship. We bring all our past into our today, and this sometimes obscures our vision of the person who shares our today with us. Therapy will help you see yourself more clearly, and see the person your are connected to more clearly. This is especially important for a couple that is looking forward to a lifetime commitment.

Licensed Psychologist

In 90805 - Nearby to Monterey Park.

I enjoy working with couples to improve their communication. Often when we run into challenges in our relationship there is a lot of activation around these disagreements, arguments, or frustrations. We may feel a sense of betrayal or disconnection from our partners. By helping individuals to ground themselves and calm the nervous system activation around these charged topics, the couple is able to listen and communicate much more effectively. Sometimes learning and practicing the skill is not enough, we need help getting into a place both emotionally and physically that we can implement what we learn even when it's during our most difficult conversations.
