Are you struggling with your relationship? It is important to understand that is is more than just having good communication skills. That can help, but the real part of making a relationship work is understanding how your partner connects. A great relationship thrives when couples know how to respond to each other in the way the each need based on their attachment styles. I can help your relationship grow by helping you respond both physically and emotionally to your partner in they way they need it and in the way you need it to feel understood, safe, and connected.

Couples Counselor

Bonnie Levy, MA, AMFT

Registered Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of San Pedro

Whoever said relationships should be easy was wrong. This myth is one of many that have perpetuated a sense of failure in couples. Relationships do in fact take work, and sometimes an extra set of eyes and ears is needed to alleviate some of the frustration and pressure that this work can bring up. Sometimes it might seem easier to run away from it, but then there is something that pulls you back. To get your relationship back on a path of growth, understanding and passion we'll work to unpack all the other myths and histories that have impacted your relationship. We'll improve communication such that it becomes easier to be seen and heard, making room for greater closeness and love.

Couples Counselor

Amie Lowery-Luyties, MFT, PPS, MS

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of San Pedro

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.

Couples Counselor

Shana Lutsky, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of San Pedro

My work with couples has mainly focused on issues revolving around the very difficult and taxing effects of infertility and how this can affect one's relationship with his/her partner. In my practice I work with couples to help them better communicate and effectively listen to what each person is experiencing so that they can move forward in a space where they feel more positively connected.

Couples Counselor

Adam Sheck, PsyD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of San Pedro

My initial work was with sexless/touchless couples, where I developed a speciality in supporting them in bringing the passion back to their relationship. This included sex of course, but also a deeper passion, a passion for life, a joie de vivre, a deep, loving connection. This is how I became known as the "Passion Doctor". My approach is to get the couple back into connection: verbally, emotionally and physically through psycho-education and exercises specifically tailored for them. My approach is not cookie-cutter or generic and combines the many disciplines I have studied and practiced including psychotherapy, somatic work, breath work and Tantric practices.

Couples Counselor

Beth Siegel, PsyD.,LCSW

Doctor of Psychology in Psychoanalysis

Within driving distance of San Pedro

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.

Couples Counselor

Carl H. Shubs, Ph.D.

Psychologist

Within driving distance of San Pedro

Married, dating, heterosexual, gay, or bisexual? I specialize in emotional intimacy, sex, addiction, and trauma, any of which can derail a relationship. You can heal your relationship or end it. I can help either way. Improve communication and handle conflicts better. Get your emotional baggage out of the way so it doesn’t hurt your relationship. Better for the couple and especially better when there are kids. Have kids and you’re divorcing? You’re still tied together. We can make that less damaging for everyone. Kids do better when their divorced parents work together for the kids’ best interest – dealing with emotions and communication better and not putting kids in the middle.

Couples Counselor

Daryl Temkin, Ph.D

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

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

Todd Deutsch, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of San Pedro

The two most important keys to a healthy relationship is communication & understanding how your partner wants to be loved. Clear and authentic communication is essential for a healthy relationship. A mindful partnership involves a place of understanding from where an individual is coming from. Clear boundaries and a respective responsibility of each other, as being unique is central for growth and belongingness. If a connection is fragmented, individuals cannot exist as one, than the relationship cannot be whole. Partners develop a dance around one another’s problems and develop dysfunctional patterns that are projected on the partner and world.

Couples Counselor

Ellie Zarrabian, PhD, CMT

Founder & Spiritual Director

Within driving distance of San Pedro

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

Bruce Levine, Ph.D., ABPP

Board Certified Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of San Pedro

Dr. Levine is a clinical psychologist, not simply a "marriage counselor." He often works with couples whose difficulties involve such problems as disagreements about dealing with relatives, children and friends as well as arguments over money, sex and unreasonable expectations. His approach is relaxed and non-confrontational, within the framework of what is known as "cognitive couples therapy." The goal is to reduce unrealistic demands and help with acceptance of the limitations of being human within the context of a close interpersonal relationship. You will find Dr. Levine to be fair, open-minded and even-handed in working with the couples he sees. He will answer the phone personally.
