Laurie Brewer, MS, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

In 93301 - Nearby to Taft.

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.

Available for Online Therapy

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?
