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.

When you are looking for a couples therapist, you need someone who is trained in couples therapy specifically. Often therapists say they know how to help a couple, but one's training in couples therapy is typically limited to one class in their entire education! The focus of therapy is traditionally on the individual! Here at LA Therapy Network, several of our therapists have specific couples therapy training! We require all our therapists to be educated specifically in couples therapy. We are all trained in helping cuoples from a developmental perspective as well as providing practical strategies for communication and conflict resolution. GLBT families encouraged and welcome!

Couples Counselor

Laurie Burns, M.S., MFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

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.

Couples Counselor

Ellen Klavan, MA, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Pacific Palisades

Couples seek therapy for all kinds of reasons--from affairs to sexual problems to fighting and frustration. Sometimes things are going well but the partners sense that their relationship could be even better. I work from the EFT Couples Therapy model, which works to strengthen the bonds that brought you into relationship in the first place. We'll also explore the personal issues that each partner brings to the relationship. Talking about these issues openly helps couples grow closer and builds intimacy. Gay and lesbian couples are welcome.

Couples Counselor

Cristy Pareti, PsyD, MFT

Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Pacific Palisades

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

Carl H. Shubs, Ph.D.

Psychologist

Within driving distance of Pacific Palisades

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.

Couples Counselor

Tom Danis, LPCC, M.ED

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Within driving distance of Pacific Palisades

There are two things get in the way of a lasting, great relationship. First, couples often don’t know how to deal with the inevitable differences that come up between them. When two people in love see any given issue (money, sex, work, child rearing, etc.) from different perspectives they need to know how to engage rather than fight around them. Second, in spite of loving each other, they haven’t yet created a deep enough intimacy to help them stay connected even during the rough times. If this intimacy isn’t developed, resentments build and opportunities for closeness become less frequent. When you work with me as a couple, you learn to experience your differences in a way that brings you....

Shana Lutsky, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Pacific Palisades

My work with couples has mainly focused on issues revolving around the very difficult and taxing effects of infertility and how this can affect one's relationship with his/her partner. In my practice I work with couples to help them better communicate and effectively listen to what each person is experiencing so that they can move forward in a space where they feel more positively connected.

Couples Counselor

Mary Kay Cocharo, LMFT, CIRT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Pacific Palisades

As a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist, I focus on helping couples improve their intimate relationships. Couples who are dating, engaged, married, or divorcing benefit from improved communication. Most couples, even those deeply in love, sometimes feel alone in their relationships. I help them to honor the space between them, cross the bridge to the other's world and listen with understanding and compassion. Solutions for relationship challenges flow easily once the connection is established. I help couples to understand the stages of relationship, recapture some of that early passion, reestablish fun and playfulness, and move forward toward their shared vision.
