Couples Counselor

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

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.

Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

At Home or Private Discreet Intensives

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?

Couples Counselor

Laurie Brewer, MS, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Shafter

I work with couples seeking premarital counseling, help with recovering from extramarital affairs, parenting issues, poor communication, or some other damage to the emotional intimacy of their relationship. I focus on communication between partners, minimizing defensiveness and aggression, and finding better ways to express thoughts and deal with strong emotions. Sometimes sessions are directed at healing a relationship, but sometimes couples need help separating peacefully. I often suggest reading material, and assign homework. I taught a parenting class so I have some tools to share for those having such problems. I work with gay and lesbian as well as heterosexual couples.
