Richard A. Cohn. Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Playa Vista

Couple counseling prior to engagement or marriage is an important process to engage that can insure that differences and disagreements can be amicably resolved through learning effective listening/ communication skills. I offer couples, pre-marital or married the opportunity to fully understand themselves and through that understanding to be a more effective partner.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Playa Vista

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.

Therapist & Counselor

In couples counseling we will explore the strengths each of you brings to your relationship and how these contribute to the overall health of your relationship together. We will work to understand your contributions and barriers to making your relationship work. The focus will remain on your goals for the relationship with the understanding that these may change as we learn more about each parties level of contribution. I encourage honesty between both parties. You will be encouraged to speak directly with one another to work toward strengthening your communication skills by clarifying the meaning and quality of the words you choose when speaking with your partner.

Couples Counselor

Phil Kiehl, M.Div, BCC

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist, Certified Chaplain & Grief Counselor

Within driving distance of Playa Vista

My approach to counseling couples is to believe that all people in relationships want two things: To be loved and to be accepted. When couples seek psychotherapy, they are fighting because they do not feel loved but instead are feeling rejected, abaondoned or alone. People also are not feeling accepted but instead are feeling judged, criticized, or blamed for who they are. Couples will benefit from my approach as I help people learn how to work through hurt, anger and blame, love and forgiveness, and boundaires and acceptance. When you feel loved and accepted, you will benefit from wanting to work with one another to solve relationship problems and find success in being a couple.

Susette Magana, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Playa Vista

As a couples therapist, I focus our sessions on the health and growth of your relationship. Growing the "friendship" part of your relationship builds a foundation of improved romantic connection and partnership in all areas of your shared life. I have special training through the Gottman Institute to build a healthy relationship foundation and identify those behaviors that interfere with feelings of safety and connection in the home. If you want to improve your marriage, but your spouse or partner isn't willing to participate in counseling, contact me anyway! We can address a lot of needs and being the process of healing.

Ellie Zarrabian, PhD, CMT

Founder & Spiritual Director

Within driving distance of Playa Vista

All couples face challenges in a relationship. What makes some relationships last and others that don't is a combination of communication skills and commitment to making the marriage work. Many marriages test people to their limit, but that doesn't mean it's a bad marriage. If you are able to hang in there and work with a trusted professional, you can expand and grow into a more loving and nurturing person.

Couples Counselor

Curtis Miller, MFT, Psy.D., D. Min., M.A., M.Div.

Marriage and Family Therapists, Psychotherapy

Within driving distance of Playa Vista

I have worked with hundred's of couples over the last 20 years. Each couple is unique in their own right which means there is no one way to "fix" a problem. Our deepest longings and hopes emerge in a couples relationship. Oftentimes we are working out unmet needs and hopes carried forward from our early family relationships to our present couple relationship. Problems become increasingly complex and difficult to overcome when we don't know what these issues are all about. Couples remain stuck in conflict not because of what they know, but what they don't know or can't recognize. The work in therapy is to help couples recognize unhealthy patterns of relating and introduce novelty.

Couples Counselor

Sandra Dupont, MA, MS, MFT

Counseling, Coaching & Mentoring for Millennials

Within driving distance of Playa Vista

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.

Couples Counselor

Tom Andre, MA

MFTI

Within driving distance of Playa Vista

My approach is to help each partner see clearly where s/he stands, what s/he stands for, and what meaning the relationship holds. How do these values come into play in the relationship? How do our own expectations, and those of society at large, influence the relationship? Often, understanding the role of a relationship in our own lives reveals possible ways forward. Sometimes, it shows us that moving forward might not be what we want to do.

Couples Counselor

Amie Lowery-Luyties, MFT, PPS, MS

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Playa Vista

The main thing I notice couples coming in for is to work on trust issues, communication problems, and lack of intimacy within the relationship. This can manifest into anger, affairs, shutting down, and a number of other behaviors. I work with couples FIRST on what does work, so that they can build upon skills they already possess within their relationship. 2: Teaching basic listening skills so that partners feel heard. 3: Teaching the couples how to communicate without attacking. 4: implementing those skills at home. Therapy is much more complex than this, and there are many more aspects of communication, but building strengths is very important to relationship success.

Whether yo uare in a new relationship or have been in one for several years, there may be a barrier from preventing you to be in a healthy relationship with each other. Different forms of communication may be missing in that relationship such as lack of understanding and not hearing each others wants and needs. Therapy can provide listening skills and ways to improve your relationship on a daily basis.

Doctor of Psychology in Psychoanalysis

You may have high conflict in your relationship or just feel like you are "growing apart" from your partner. Couples counseling can help you and your partner communicate on a "level playing field." As a therapist, I meet with you and your partner at the same time; therefore providing both of you with the opportunity to communicate in a calm, safe environment. Finally, I do not "take sides" in your relationship. I am an advocate for you as a couple.
