Couples counseling is an amazing experience. Your relationship is my client and I will work closely with both of you to identify the relational dance you participate in, and how we can interrupt the negative patterns you engage in, and instead promote healthier ways of connecting and attaching. Couples therapy can be a really fun and pleasurable experience where you get to know more about your partner and also about your self. Couples therapy works in a stage process. I will be there along each step of the way helping to make sure that you guys are connecting. I will help to empower you both so that you may enhance and strengthen your most important relationship!

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 and Family Therapist

In 90049 - Nearby to Pacific Palisades.

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.

The benefits of Couple's Therapy can include an improvement in the relationship that saves it from stagnating or ending. But sometimes the couple benefits most by having a neutral, empathic environment in which to figure out that what they really want to do is break up, in the most amicable way possible. Whatever the conscious and unconscious goals of the client couple, these can be met given sufficient courage and the willingness to speak truthfully.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 91030 - Nearby to Pacific Palisades.

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.

Miriam Davis, M.A., M.F.T.
Couples Counselor

Miriam Davis, M.A., M.F.T.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 91505 - Nearby to Pacific Palisades.

I have worked with many couples over the years...married, living together, same sex or heterosexual. My initial focus is to understand the underlying dynamics and pain that each of the partners is experiencing in the relationship and what has caused the conflict, disappointment and distress they now feel. I then work to help each of them understand the needs of the other, and be able to communicate (hearing what the other means and "feels" and expressing what they need and feel) in more loving, respectful and clear ways. We work together to restore the attachment and bond that has been damaged so that they can rediscover love, intimacy, trust and respect for each other.

Betsy Sansby, MS, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist & Communication Expert for over 30 years

In 90039 - Nearby to Pacific Palisades.

After over 30 years of practice as a marriage counselor, I’m shifting my focus away working with from couples whose relationships are already broken. I’m now focusing on helping couples who are just starting out on their journey to build strong, healthy relationships that will last a lifetime. If you’re looking for a communication coach who can teach you how to talk about difficult topics more easily, and learn what keeps love alive for a lifetime, I can help.

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

There are times when we feel disconnected and distant from our partner and this usually creates increased conflict. Couples counseling will improve the intimate connection and foster improved communication between partners as they move toward increased physical and emotional intimacy. A couples therapist can help a couple see each other in a different way and be able to teach the couple the tools that are necessary to address conflict and solve problems.
