I use a combination of tried and true couples communication techniques to help couples create and build effective communication into their relationship. I also spend time on exploring sexual compatability and communication, when the couple wants their sexual lintimacy enhanced. IF there is lack of desire or an imbalance of desires, we address the roots of this.With couples who come for pre-marital counseling, we focus on communication skills and on common needs and wants the couple have for their impending marriage and family unit. We also look at any red flags that are showing up in the relationship.

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.

Often, it's not that couples don't love each other. It's that they can't FIND each other. Emotions and life get in the way. If you are struggling with marriage or relationship concerns similar to these I can help: • You want to make it work, but don't know how. • Can't talk to each other; argue and insult each other. • Struggle with physical and emotional intimacy. • Feel alone or disconnected in your relationship. • Struggle with whether to stay or leave. • Are unsure if you can trust your partner/infidelity. • Have conflicts about parenting or family challenges. I work with married, dating, and premarital couples. Please allow me to help you find each other again.

Christi Lindsay, PsyD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Why do we seem to have the same arguments over and over again? How do I know if we are really supposed to be together? Are there things we could be doing to better support each other, to help each other grow and be our best selves? If we really love each other, why do we so often hurt each other? How do I know if this is real love, anyway? Relationships are hard. Even more than desire, they require effort and understanding to make them work. Often, even if two people really love each other, one or both may need help to maintain the right effort or understanding to keep the balance necessary for long-term success. Having outside, objective support can make all the difference.

Are you experiencing distress in your relationship? Are you and your partner drifting further apart? Do you want to get back the love and trust you once had? Do you have recurring arguments that never get better? Marriage and intimate relationships have the potential for either great joy or great pain. Prolonged difficulties are not inevitable and not unsolvable. Contrary to appearances distress in relationships are often not caused by stressful issues, but by the way couples react to and deal with these issues. The process I use focuses on gently guiding your relationship towards greater joy, compassion and understanding. There is significant research on this approach and it has been found th....

Whether or not your married, whether or not you are thinking about marriage, if you are in a relationship with another person, you are bound to occasionally have some communication issues or misunderstandings. However, when these communication issues or misunderstandings prevent us from having a happy and healthy relationship, we need to seek help before deciding to separate or divorce. My couples counseling can help you identify the causes of relationship dissatisfaction and find ways to help you communicate and listen better.

Joan Fellows, M.A. MFC

Licensed Marriage, Family, Individual Therapist

In 95814 - Nearby to Rio Linda.

In my work with couples I focus on helping the couple create a safe and secure connection to one another. The couple will become aware of: 1. The pattern of communication between them that disrupts connection. 2. The underlying often vulnerable feelings that are not expressed. 3. What it is that triggers each person's fear, anger or hurt. 4. Learn patterns of communication that create a safe and secure connection. Conflict will always be a part of relationships. What is key to creating a nurturing safe connection with one another is how we handle these conflicts when they occur.

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.

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings?

Gita Seshadri, Ph.D, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 95816 - Nearby to Rio Linda.

Couples therapy often triggers roadblocks in communication. In being shaped by prior relationships, we create various meaning from our experiences as well as receiving and giving instructions on how to live. When we form new relationships of any kind, this gets challenged; coming together and finding a path forward that celebrates all involved is the key to success. My specialty is interracial couples; regardless of if you both come from different backgrounds, the goal is to create shared meaning that is co-constructed. I can help with this process.

Ryan Chambers, AMFT, MA

Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

In 95630 - Nearby to Rio Linda.

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.

Are you tired of having that same old fight? Do you feel stuck and unhappy? Relationships can be challenging. A strong and healthy marriage is vital to experiencing life at its best. Support from our mate strengthens us to meet the challenges of life. The listening ear of one who believes in us uplifts and motivates. A relationship filled with encouragement and affirmation rather than criticism and complaint inspires confidence. I can help solve the problem, end the tension, and find a new perspective. Choose today to begin building the relationship you desire.

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!
