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.

Couples Counselor

Marijane Ward, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

1151 Dove Street Suite 230, Newport Beach, California

Couples come in all sorts of configurations, from Mommy/baby, to employer/employee, to parent/child/adoles. and of course husbands/partners/wives. Each of these couples are tremendously intimate and are often the very place we act out, feel grave disappointments and experiences some of our highest joys. This can be an optimum place of growth for both participants. It takes courage, honesty and a willingness to look inward and outward.

Couples Counselor

Deborah Farnsworth, Psy.D.


1151 Dove Street, Suite 278, Newport Beach, California

Conflict and discord often are a factor of poor communication and feelings that both partners must agree in order to be compatible. This kind of thinking can result in angry standoffs that lead to a feeling that in order for one to win the their must lose. I teach couples how to communicate and understand that difference in needs does not mean incompatibility. Working towards win-win solutions can enhance your marital satisfaction and increase intimacy. I enjoy working with couples and have a good success rate. Let me help you find happiness in your marriage.

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.

Couples Counselor

Kristi Starkey, MS, MFT, #52051

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

1700 Adams Avenue, Suite 214, Costa Mesa, California

I work from an emotionally focused attachment theory (EFT) when working with couples in Mission Viejo, CA. Research shows that humans are hardwired for a strong emotional bond. When a couple has relationship problems they experience an emotional disconnection with their partner at key moments. This leads to emotional reactions involving anger and criticism. I will work with you as a couple to help overcome those negative cycles and to re-establish your connection and strengthen your emotional bond. Through the exploration of emotions, reactions, inter-relations, and behaviors, you will be able to identify your pattern in relationship.

Couples Counselor

Patrice Hooke, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

1151 Dove Street, Suite 245, Newport Beach, California

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.
