Couples Counselor

Dan Quinn, Psy.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Richmond

My work focuses on a combination of skills training in how happy couples talk and argue, and the creation of safety and opportunities to create "heart-to-heart" conversations to restore and revitalize intimacy in your relationship. It is these two approaches that are supported convincingly by a large body of research, and it requires a therapist who acts as coach and referee. I don't let couples fight their same old fights in my office - the whole point is to get past the same old arguments and have the deeper and more useful conversations that have been sidetracked.

Couples Counselor

Jill Kane, Psy.D.

Psychologist

Within driving distance of Richmond

Each couple has a unique dynamic. I work hard to ensure that both individuals in the couple are heard and understood so that the couple feels safe to work on their communication goals and meet their intimacy needs. Relationships change as life circumstances change - new couples, couples considering marriage, addition of children to the dynamic, individual job challenges, death of parents, financial difficulties all impact the health of the couple. Come discuss the issues and improve the relationship bond.

Couples Counselor

Judith Wyatt, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Richmond

I work with couples to set up a non-blaming environment in counseling, and to make it clear that I believe that each person's basic needs and feelings are valid, and that I intend to make equal room for each. I am not there to judge between you, and we dispense with the right/wrong model, barring actual abuse. We look at the pluses between you, and the areas of conflict. I teach non-violent communication and the appropriate setting of boundaries. We explore the unconscious assumptions you each bring from your family of origin, and the acceptance of your differences as valid. You will learn that you each have a personal dictionary, and how easy it is to misinterpret each other.

Couples Counselor

Robert Nemerovski, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Richmond

Couples often come to counseling when they have difficulty talking with each other or resolving an issue. Some find that a familiar struggle or behavioral pattern “dynamic” comes up over and over again. Commonly, tensions and emotions can run high, and each person may feel some combination of distant, resentful, sad, hurt, worried, or angry. Couples counseling is a special opportunity to understand these patterns and explore new communication, behaviors, and connection. I help facilitate a more productive conversation in a safe environment and offer exercises and other resources to practice from home. I welcome and provide couples counseling to people from all backgrounds.

Couples Counselor

Todd Harvey, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Richmond

It really hurts when the person you love is focused on "being right", rather than really getting you! Does your relationship create a deep pain or numbness in your heart? When we start to believe that our LEGITIMATE needs for connection will not be adequately met with our partner, it is easy to focus on our personal needs (at the expense of our partner's). A NORMAL human response to this is: nagging, petty repetitive fights, silent-treatments, numbing out, outbursts, being condescending, focusing on being right (rather than really listening). Using EFT, I FOCUS ON SHIFTING THE CULTURE OF YOUR RELATIONSHIP from its current negative painful cycles into being a safe place for both of you.

Couples Counselor

Meri Levy, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #88213

Within driving distance of Richmond

Is your relationship at a stalemate? Or are you finding yourselves drifting apart, or arguing without really hearing each other? Working with a calm, neutral third party, the two of you can explore destructive patterns and learn new ways to improve intimacy. Couples counseling does not mean your relationship is over! It is only the beginning of a new stage. Many couples find greater closeness after working through their difficulties in therapy and finding new reasons to love each other.

Couples Counselor

Galina Litvin, MFTI

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Richmond

My goal in couple’s therapy is to help two people reestablish a healthy bond, mutual respect, and open communication. Often life gets busy, and different stressors such as financial, infidelity, and or parenting challenges can cause a relationship to become fractured or strained. In couples therapy we will work together to rekindle the bonds that tie us and learn to strengthen friendship. We will spend time working on fixing the broken bonds and repairing the hardships between the couple.

Couples Counselor

Dietmar Brinkmann, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Richmond

Most couples come to therapy because they find it hard to communicate with each other. They want to resolve endless fights and avoid getting caught in fruitless arguments. When feelings are raw it can be so hard to feel close and end the negative cycle of blame and defensive withdrawal. In couple therapy, I help you feel safe to express yourself. You and your partner will learn to listen to each other with compassion and grow a shared understanding of what makes your relationship work. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy, an approach proven by extensive research to strengthen the emotional bond that is the heart of every relationship.

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Richmond

There are countless models of healthy romantic relationships, from monogamous to polyamorous, and unique variations between partners. The scripts for dating and longterm relationships of our parents’ generations may not be applicable to your relationship, and there is no formal education in how to be a good partner or how to identify unhealthy relationships. But there is psychological research that shows that effective communication, emotional openness, intimacy, and other factors contribute to healthy relationships. Creating these conditions are skills that can be learned. I practice brief humanistic and emotion-focused therapy (EFT) to help my LGBTQ and hetero clients learn these skills.

Couples Counselor

Katherine Jewett, MA LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist #100342

Within driving distance of Richmond

Do you and your loved one seem to be moving farther and father apart? Do you notice that you are arguing more, feeling more distant, or feeling cut off completely from this person that you had once found so much joy in? The relationship with a significant other is one of the most profound that you will ever experience. It is responsible for keeping us centered emotionally in stressful times, and it is responsible for helping us to feel joy and connection in the world. Learn to communicate with your partner and how to get your needs met and figure out the primary needs of your partner. Rebuild trust and friendship and learn skills and tools to avoid the biggest relationship killers!

Napa Interfaith Counseling

I work with couples of all kinds, and in all stages of relationship. I help couples focus on the "We" in their relationship, develop strengths and improve their communication. I also help couples pause behavior that is having a negative impact and develop new perspectives and behaviors that nourish their connection. Whether couples are married or unmarried or considering marriage, whether they have been together a few months or many years, I help them make their relationship a more loving, less painful and more enjoyable place to be.
