Licensed Psychologist

Couples therapy is my area of specialization and I love this part of my work. Many couples I see are in significant distress in their relationship and we work toward understanding what is causing and maintaining the distress. We will identify and explore the relationship patterns that lead to disconnection as the first step toward positive change and then work toward the development of greater intimacy, trust, safety and emotional connection. I have helped many couples who are on the brink of separation and divorce, as well as couples who are recovering from affairs, betrayals, and addiction.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Clinical Psychology Doctor

Available for Online Therapy

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.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Available for Online Therapy

Couples may they be in a dating relationship, living together, engaged to marry, married, in business together, separating, divorcing, fighting over children, property, alimony or visitation, are often confronted with a breakdown in communication and an inability to resolve conflicts. Couple counseling aims to reveal the disconnect within a couple that often once had the ability to connect and function in harmony. Couples can quickly get off track with one another and need skilled guidance to help them learn to resolve conflicts, once again listen and communicate effectively as well as to be able to disagree without forcing the relationship to end.

Ryan Chambers, AMFT, MA

Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

In 95630 - Nearby to Placerville.

Couples counseling is where I really shine! I am able to understand both men and women's needs and perspectives on troubling issues and translate them into words the other can understand. Men often think couples counseling means they are going to be told they're wrong and broken. Men aren't broken - they just haven't been taught effective relationship skills. Men tend not to go around raising their sons talking about feelings, emotions, or deep meanings. I show men how to retain their sense of masculinity while learning to speak in a language their wives or girlfriends can appreciate. The magic of couples counseling happens when partners see the meanings behind their partners' words/actions.

Couples Counselor

Jozeffa Greer, MFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

In 95603 - Nearby to Placerville.

Nothing means more to you than your relationship with your partner. It's why it hurts so much when you try to get close and they shut down or find some other way to pull away. Or maybe you feel suffocated, criticized, and not enough because it feels like too much is wanted from you. You're not alone. I get how important this person is to you, and want to help you to recognize your stuck push/pull pattern so that you can feel satisfied and understood in your relationship. This is also true when there are more serious problems, like affairs or addictions. As you learn what motivates you as well as your partner, you can again renew the bond of this most important relationship.

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!
