My clinical approach to couples therapy consists of teaching emotional intelligence aimed at improving conflict resolution and communication skills. Therapy provides a safe environment for couples to explore their thoughts and feelings with the aim of understanding each others emotional needs. The goals of treatment consists of working on issues related to trust, communication, intimacy, parenting issues, and so on. Therapy helps client learn ways to address sensitive issues and helps clients learn how to discuss those issues.

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.

Research shows that couples come to therapy an average of 6 YEARS later than when the problems started; accordingly, they can be very hostile at the beginning of treatment. I work with highly conflict couples to reduce the reactivity through making them aware of the meaning they make of their partner's behavior in relationship. I also do discernment counseling for couples who are undecided if they want to stay in their marriage; pre-marital counseling for couples who are considering the important step of marriage; blended family couples counseling for couples who are coming together with children from previous relationships; and coaching to help divorcing couples to uncouple amicably.

Marriage and Family Therapist

In 90048 - Nearby to Northridge.

Last year, I have did over 80 hours of training in couples therapy. Nothing feels more important to me than to help people create great relationships. I have had much success over the past 16 years in helping couples; whether dating, married, newlyweds, separated, divorced (to create a successful co-parenting relationship, even when they can't stand to be in the same room), & those divorcing, so they can navigate the process with grace. Best advice: Come in before you think you HAVE TO, for the least # of sessions, don't wait. You are not a failure if you are having trouble in your relationship. Businesses hire consultants & so should you for the most important & complicated part of life.

Christi Lindsay, PsyD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Why do we seem to have the same arguments over and over again? How do I know if we are really supposed to be together? Are there things we could be doing to better support each other, to help each other grow and be our best selves? If we really love each other, why do we so often hurt each other? How do I know if this is real love, anyway? Relationships are hard. Even more than desire, they require effort and understanding to make them work. Often, even if two people really love each other, one or both may need help to maintain the right effort or understanding to keep the balance necessary for long-term success. Having outside, objective support can make all the difference.

My work with couples begins with teaching ways to communicate from a calm place, avoiding escalation and rebuilding trust. I help you see the conflict as a third entity, with the both of you (and me) on the same team, tackling it. With new tools on how to better communicate, I can help you restore the love and passion that brought you together in the first place.

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.

Laurie Burns, M.S., MFT
Couples Counselor

Laurie Burns, M.S., MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 90290 - Nearby to Northridge.

Each couple has their own unique dance. When in sync, there is a rhythmic flow between and within each partner. When there is a shift in the bond due to chaos and trauma, the movement between the two becomes disrupted and derailed; there is a dis-connect and a fight to re-connect and be understood by the other. I work with the understanding that the relationship between two people who love each other is not so much a behavioral negotiation, but rather a deep relational bond, where each partner longs for safety and trust. I help couples bring a deeper understanding of the bond between them and foster a safe haven for each partner to build a secure connection with each other.

Most relationships can be radically changed and improved with just a few simple insights. I work with couple to build closeness and trust that may have eroded over time. Time and time again, I have seen couples, through therapy, come to recapture the love, joy and appreciation they once had for each other and get closer than they ever imagined possible. Together, the three of us, will work to improve communication and bring light to unconscious patterns, beliefs and thoughts that emerged from past relationships (familial and otherwise). Through increased insight and understanding it is absolutely possible to have a relationship filled with intimacy, closeness, and increased satisfaction.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Psychotherapist

In 90034 - Nearby to Northridge.

At the heart of a strong and intimate relationshp are two keystones - 1) Trust and 2) Commitment. The higher the trust, the higher the commitment in the relationship. The lower the trust, the lower the commitment. When trust and commitment is low, its the perfect breeding ground for unending fights, arguments, and betrayal in all forms. Couples therapy gets to the root of these 2 core issues and empowers the couple with effective tools to restore and renew their trust and commitment to each other.

LMFT

In 90245 - Nearby to Northridge.

My approach is to help each partner see clearly where s/he stands, what s/he stands for, and what meaning the relationship holds. How do these values come into play in the relationship? How do our own expectations, and those of society at large, influence the relationship? Often, understanding the role of a relationship in our own lives reveals possible ways forward. Sometimes, it shows us that moving forward might not be what we want to do.

Relationships are hard. This is a fact that many people deny and others become aware of when it is too late.

Adolescent & Emerging Adulthood Specialist

In 90401 - Nearby to Northridge.

Relationships are an area where young adults can struggle. Wanting to create lasting bonds, they don't always think about who is a good match for them, given their family values, and plans for their life. Past failed relationships can also leave sensitive young adults hesitant to open their hearts and try to find love again. I help sensitive young adults discover what it takes to create the loving relationship they've always dreamed of.

Board Certified Clinical Psychologist

In 90048 - Nearby to Northridge.

Dr. Levine is a clinical psychologist, not simply a "marriage counselor." He often works with couples whose difficulties involve such problems as disagreements about dealing with relatives, children and friends as well as arguments over money, sex and unreasonable expectations. His approach is relaxed and non-confrontational, within the framework of what is known as "cognitive couples therapy." The goal is to reduce unrealistic demands and help with acceptance of the limitations of being human within the context of a close interpersonal relationship. You will find Dr. Levine to be fair, open-minded and even-handed in working with the couples he sees. He will answer the phone personally.

Couples Counselor

John Kane, AMFT, APCC

Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

Available for Online Therapy

Without conflict, couples do not achieve intimacy. The challenge is helping you and your partner learn how to have healthy conflict that leads to intimacy, rather than destructive conflict that destroys the relationship. While I work with all couples, I specialize in working with neuro-diverse couples. I usually start with helping you learn ground rules for being able to have safe, constructive, healthy conflict to reduce and eliminate destructive relational patterns. I also use Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT) to help you reconnect, learn healthy communication skills, rekindle the flame that you once had, and start talking to each other again. If you are willing to work, I am here for you!
