Couples Counselor

Cristy Pareti, PsyD, MFT

Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Oceanside

Many couples present in distress with a strong desire to enhance their relationships. I like to work with communication styles as well as explore some old patterns of relating that may have their history in early childhood experiences with their own families. Being able to identify these old patterns of relating to a significant other can help couples to understand why they bring these old patterns into their current relationship. After these patterns are identified, new ways of relating and communicating are explored and practiced. Listening skills and acceptance are important areas of exploration throughout therapy as well. Couples find new & satisfying ways of relating with each other.

Couples Counselor

Jill Silverman, LCSW

Licensed Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Oceanside

I specialize in couples, marriage and relationship counseling as well as issues related to infidelity. Most couples find it helpful to begin by coming in for their own individual session first and then coming in as a couple after that. In hearing each person's complete perspective, I am able to gain a better understanding of where you are coming from so that I may facilitate communication. Its normal to be able to talk a little bit more in depth when you are alone, so I gain much more information about how I can help. Couples are often relieved to hear that they can begin counseling this way.

Couples Counselor

Vicki Asher Wills, PsyD, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Clinical Psychology Doctor

Within driving distance of Oceanside

In my Couples Counseling work I help partners build on the strengths of their relationship while we work together to create new skills for communicating and solving problems. My approach is collaborative and I teach each partner to learn how to listen and hear what the other is expressing and needing as well as ways to be heard and understood better. I provide a safe place where difficult problems can be discussed and solutions explored and practiced so that couples can better resolve ongoing problems.

When the storms of life hit your marriage, you can turn against each other, turn away from each other, or "go back to back" to stand with each other against the stress and obstacles of life. I specialize in working with couples in crisis and will help you repair the damaging effects that secrets or resentments have had on your trust and attraction for each other. Our goal will be to rebuild your marriage to "go the distance," recapture the romance, and strengthen your marriage bond so that you can confidently face together what lies ahead. Ask me about my package deal for premarital counseling- I want to help you start your new life together in a healthy way!

Couples Counselor

The Center for Change, M.S., M.A., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Oceanside

If you do not like the relationship that you have with your significant other, and you would like it to be different, that desire alone will not change your relationship. That change begins with the intention to change it and then following through with your thoughts, feelings and behaviors. One person can change the dynamics in the relationship. I can help you to clarify what needs to change and support you in following through with your intentions to improve your intimate relationship.

Couples Counselor

Deborah Moyer, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Oceanside

If you are feeling like you’ve lost hope for your relationship, part of my job is to hold the hope for you. I passionately believe that there are very few problems that can’t be resolved when both partners are willing to work on the relationship. Even when you feel there is no way that you could regain what you once had, couples counseling can help you find something new and maybe even better. I practice Gottman Method Couples Therapy, and I welcome the opportunity to help you both build a stronger relationship. In addition to regular weekly sessions, I offer special 3-hour sessions to help “jump-start” the healing.

Couples Counselor

Scott Wood, M.A.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Oceanside

Among human relationships, marriage can be a source of great joy and connection. Often over time, negative cycles and patterns of interaction can develop that create pain and disconnection in the relationship. Adult love relationships are about creating secure attachment and a connection that allows each partner to feel emotionally safe. Through the counseling process, I assist couples in identifying and overcoming negative cycles, healing from past hurts, and reconnecting emotionally. I also work with couples looking for healing from infidelity. Even very distressed couples can reconnect and restore trust and emotional security. I also provide pre-marital and enrichment counseling.

Couples Counselor

Rakefet Benderly, Ph.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Oceanside

Effective couples therapy can be done with only one person of the couple in the therapy room. Many individuals in relationships have issues they are not ready to discuss in front of their partner for various reasons. They want to work with a therapist to truly understand their thoughts, feelings and dilemmas with regard to their relationship in a private, supportive setting. As a clinical psychologist with over 20 years experience, I have helped many couples in this treatment format. How it works is that couples are in a relationship dynamic. When one person shifts perspective and gains new tools, the relationship dynamic changes. I can help you. Call today.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Humans experience the world through relationships with others. We are made to connect! When connections with our significant others are fractured, it can impact our mood, our health, our work and family relationships. We fear being abandoned, alone, and a disappointment to those important to us. Emotionally Focused Therapy can help us to reconnect, feel cared for, and to feel loved and valued again by our partners. You do not need to remain stuck in repetitive cycles of isolation and pain. Whatever your partnership arrangement, you are welcome. Things can change for the better! Maybe you are a couple on the brink of divorce. Discernment counseling can help get clarity on the path to take.
