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.

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings?

Couples Counselor

Adam Sheck, PsyD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 90210 - Nearby to Northridge.

My initial work was with sexless/touchless couples, where I developed a speciality in supporting them in bringing the passion back to their relationship. This included sex of course, but also a deeper passion, a passion for life, a joie de vivre, a deep, loving connection. This is how I became known as the "Passion Doctor". My approach is to get the couple back into connection: verbally, emotionally and physically through psycho-education and exercises specifically tailored for them. My approach is not cookie-cutter or generic and combines the many disciplines I have studied and practiced including psychotherapy, somatic work, breath work and Tantric practices.

Licensed marriage and family therapist (#17142)

In 93065 - Nearby to Northridge.

Sometimes couples are afraid to come to counseling, fearing that it means their relationship is in trouble. I think that it means they care about the relationship, and are making an important step to strengthen it. Most couples who start counseling with me do well, and feel that it has helped. That's not a guarantee, but it is an encouragement to find out how you can improve your relationship.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist 85860

In 90250 - Nearby to Northridge.

As an ICEEFT-certified EFT couples therapist, I can help you and your partner to reconnect, escape from the repetitive cycles that keep you distant from each other, make sense of your emotions, improve the way you handle stress and conflict, and restore trust and safety with each other. There is no bad guy in your relationship. I'll help you see how your feelings and behaviors make perfect sense - and work with you both to create new, positive cycles that draw you closer together. EFT is very well supported by research showing that it significantly improves over 86% of distressed relationships, and importantly, that those benefits are still present two or three years after therapy is over.

Couples Counselor

Bruce Levine, Ph.D., ABPP

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.

What do you hope for with your partner? In couples therapy, we improve communication, bridge differences, and promote change. People come to couples therapy at many stages of relationship: pre-marital counseling; navigating differences in time management; blending households and families; birth of a child; infidelity; divorce -- any time a couple is seeking to change behaviors that are causing pain. When a life stressor has begun to affect your partnership in an unwanted way, or if you are seeking to be heard differently by your partner, the skills you learn in couples therapy will create a more mutually satisfying relationship.

Psychotherapist, Individual & Family Therapist

In 91301 - Nearby to Northridge.

Is your perception of your partner one that brings you calmness and strength, or agitation and fear? I help couples to remember their forgotten longing. As partners, we need to be responsible for the type of energy we bring into the relationship. Through counseling, I help couples change their emotional negativity, in whatever form it takes, by focusing on extreme compassion for your partner's issues. Catch your relationship before it feels beyond fixable.

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA LMHC NCC

Psychotherapist

In 90026 - Nearby to Northridge.

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 90069 - Nearby to Northridge.

Every relationship experiences arguments and conflict. That is an inevitable part of being in an intimate relationship. These differences do not have to undermine a relationship so long as the underlying patterns of interaction which keep these conflicts active can be understood and resolved. As a specialist in couples counseling, I seek to help a couple identify these patterns and learn how to listen with understanding while promoting the authenticity of each individual. I use an emotionally focused treatment which allows a couple to work through their conflicts while enhancing their feelings of attachment and closeness. With 32 years of experience, I have helped many couples do this.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

The two most important keys to a healthy relationship is communication & understanding how your partner wants to be loved. Clear and authentic communication is essential for a healthy relationship. A mindful partnership involves a place of understanding from where an individual is coming from. Clear boundaries and a respective responsibility of each other, as being unique is central for growth and belongingness. If a connection is fragmented, individuals cannot exist as one, than the relationship cannot be whole. Partners develop a dance around one another’s problems and develop dysfunctional patterns that are projected on the partner and world.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 90293 - Nearby to Northridge.

Intimate, committed relationships can start off beautifully where you cannot get enough of your partner. Then, before you know it-the desire and passion are gone, you hurt each other's feelings, you feel misunderstood and resentful. Often times, couples go to counseling to work on "communication" "regain desire" and to "build trust". Communication is more than just the words we use, I can help you and your partner understand each other and ensure what needs to be said-is said. The desire that you once felt can be found again. Trusting each other can happen again-I will help you and your partner regain the intimacy, connection and bond that made you commit to each other.

Relationships are hard. This is a fact that many people deny and others become aware of when it is too late. By creating an environment where couples can communicate in an honest manner, I work with them to establish clear lines of communication. In addition to working with couples, I am currently working toward a certification as a sex therapist.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 91355 - Nearby to Northridge.

Most of my work is with couples who struggle with communication, financial, parenting, and blended family issues. My focus is on providing counseling from a biblical perspective and I've found that the extent to which couples are able to apply those principles in their marriage truly determines how well they do in therapy. Although I specialize in couples work, I also work with individual clients in the areas of anxiety, depression, stress, and spiritual issues.

Marriage and Family Therapist

In 91355 - Nearby to Northridge.

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.

Psychologist

In 90212 - Nearby to Northridge.

Married, dating, heterosexual, gay, or bisexual? I specialize in emotional intimacy, sex, addiction, and trauma, any of which can derail a relationship. You can heal your relationship or end it. I can help either way. Improve communication and handle conflicts better. Get your emotional baggage out of the way so it doesn’t hurt your relationship. Better for the couple and especially better when there are kids. Have kids and you’re divorcing? You’re still tied together. We can make that less damaging for everyone. Kids do better when their divorced parents work together for the kids’ best interest – dealing with emotions and communication better and not putting kids in the middle.
