Couples Counselor

Theo Reynolds, RC

Relationship Counselor

1630 Lombard St., San Francisco, California

One of my main specialities is couples counseling. I work with couples of all varieties - not just romantic couples but any combination of two people who need help with their relationship; sisters, father and daughter, cousins, business partners. I also work with other types of couples such as gay and lesbian couples, transgender couples, polyamorous couples etc. I enjoy this work immensely and have helped many couples find more closeness, safety, compassion, ease and care for each other. About half of my clients are couples so I have a great deal of experience. No matter how old and deep the problems are in your relationship, I can help you finally move past these issues for good.

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

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.

Daryl Temkin, Ph.D

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.

Couples Counselor

Amelia Katkov, MA, MFTI

MFTI

1795 Union Street at Octavia, San Francisco, California

We don't always have examples of how to have a successful or healthy relationship, and sometimes find ourselves without the tools to navigate challenges within our own relationships. In working with me you can expect to build tools for truly and actively listening to your partner while also learning how to provide your partner with the same support. These tools can be safely mastered in my office, and then taken with you for continued use in your relationship.

Couples Counselor

Kyle Corsiglia, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

2171 Union Street, San Francisco, California

I will work with you at whatever stage you are in as a couple. You will develop better communication skills. I will help you both get to a place of repair and mutual understanding. We will look at what supports forgiveness and healing. You will become stronger and more connected as a couple. I will help educate you as to what contributes to a healthy relationship. I will coach and guide you as you take risks and try new ways of communicating.

Couples Counselor

Erika Shershun, MA, MFT

Somatic Psychotherapist

465 California Street, San Francisco, California

A sense of belonging happens when we feel truly seen by one who loves us, yet it is in the safety of belonging that much of our wounding begins to emerge. Patterns of relating created by attachment, separation, and loss formed during childhood form the foundation of self perception on physical, emotional, and psychological levels, significantly influencing and impacting our adult relationships. It is through these most intimate relationships that we find the greatest opportunity to heal our attachment wounds. Together we can identify, explore, and bring relief to the cycles of triggering that you and your partner(s) get caught in, creating a greater sense of connection and intimacy.

Couples Counselor

Sandra Amat, MFT

Licensed Marriage Family Therapist

2171 Union Street #6, San Francisco, California

I view relationship as a vehicle to support greater deepening and healing. It is in relationship that we see our deepest vulnerability, insecurity and unprocessed wounding. Where do we get more triggered than in our primary relationship? I believe that sharing the attitude of using the relationship as a vehicle to heal, allows couples to get on the same page as they work through their issues. It becomes less about who will win this argument and more about how the couple can support each other in healing. Together we can explore relationship dynamics and work toward creating a supportive environment for growth, transformation and healing.

Couples Counselor

Natalie M. Mills, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

870 Market St., Ste. 1055, San Francisco, California

Many of the couples I see come to me for the following reasons: they have become more like roommates rather than a romantic couple, inability to trust one another, jealousy in the relationship, unfulfilling sexual or emotional intimacy, intense yelling and arguing, general dissatisfaction, an episode of infidelity, navigating divorce or separation. It can feel both hopeful and scary for couples to explore these issues in their relationship. Our work will explore why your relationship is exhibiting its pattern, give you tips and strategies to abate and extinguish unhealthy cycles, and achieve and maintain the relationship you want.

Couples Counselor

Judith Wyatt, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

870 Market St., Ste. 968, San Francisco, California

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

Elizabeth Hayes, Psy.D, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

1195 Valencia Street, Suite 4, San Francisco, California

I work with couples that are struggling to connect emotionally, have issues with communication, and want to create new relational dynamics that increase their connection. My approach is warm and collaborative and I work hard to carefully listen to each person to provide the therapeutic interventions necessary to increase understanding, communication, mutual interest, curiosity, and awareness. In my experience couples enter treatment with varying degrees of ambivalence and desire for change. I work hard to create a safe environment to explore each persons concerns and desires so we can better collaborate towards working together to generate movement and change.

Couples Counselor

Maureen Fiorelli, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

582 Market Street, Suite 312, San Francisco, California

I have been working with couples for 15 years and I use a combination of different styles when working with couples. I am informed by the work of John Gottman (Gottman Technique) and also by Emotionally Focused Therapy. I help clients learn communication techniques and lower their incidents of fighting. I help clients get to the source of their marital dissatisfaction or relationship struggles. I also enjoy working with clients who identify as LGBTQ and clients who are in poly relationships.

Couples Counselor

Robert Nemerovski, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

3628 Sacramento Street, San Francisco, California

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.
