I work with couples who are having relationship problems, wish to improve an already well-functioning relationship, and those seeking pre-marital or co-parenting (raising a child/children when divorced or separated) counseling. The couples I see might be married, separated/divorced, co-habitating, or seriously dating with plans for a more committed relationship. My non-judgmental approach allows for each partner to fully express their needs and desires in a partner. I am experienced with working with straight ( heterosexual), gay, and lesbian couples. My clients benefit from learning to understand their relationships within a family systems framework. The insights learned from understan

In a time when 60% of marriages end in divorce couples counseling is extremely important. Keeping a marriage or a relationship together can save tremendous pain and suffering for each partner. In couples counseling, the goal is two fold. It is to identify and resolve the problem, and improve communication (if this is an issue). Once the problems are identified, the couple can use their communication skills to learn compromise in the relationship. It is evident that many of us did not choose the most compatible partner. However, a relationship can still be rewarding, supportive, and meaningful if the communication is improved. The therapist’s task is to identify the dysfunctional commun

As an EFT therapist, I can help you and your partner to reconnect, escape from the repetitive cycles that keep you distant from each other, make sense of your emotions, improve the way you handle stress and conflict, and restore trust and safety with each other. There is no bad guy in your relationship. I'll help you see how your feelings and behaviors make perfect sense - and work with you both to create new, positive cycles that draw you closer together. EFT is very well supported by research showing that it significantly improves over 86% of distressed relationships, and importantly, that those benefits are still present two or three years after therapy is over.

Each couple has their own unique dance. When in sync, there is a rhythmic flow between and within each partner. When there is a shift in the bond due to chaos and trauma, the movement between the two becomes disrupted and derailed; there is a dis-connect and a fight to re-connect and be understood by the other. I work with the understanding that the relationship between two people who love each other is not so much a behavioral negotiation, but rather a deep relational bond, where each partner longs for safety and trust. I help couples bring a deeper understanding of the bond between them and foster a safe haven for each partner to build a secure connection with each other.

Relationships can be difficult. Intimacy can be uncomfortable. Communication can be strained. Even though 2 people love each other, sometimes that just is not enough. When I do couple's work, it is very important that both people feel heard and can express their thoughts and feelings openly. Sometimes, help is needed to assist the expression of these thoughts and feelings. I provide a safe and secure environment to allow this process to occur and hopefully, a couple can work through their issues together resulting in a stronger and more satisfying union.

Is your perception of your partner one that brings you calmness and strength, or agitation and fear? I help couples to remember their forgotten longing. As partners, we need to be responsible for the type of energy we bring into the relationship. Through counseling, I help couples change their emotional negativity, in whatever form it takes, by focusing on extreme compassion for your partner's issues. Catch your relationship before it feels beyond fixable.

Couple counseling prior to engagement or marriage is an important process to engage that can insure that differences and disagreements can be amicably resolved through learning effective listening/ communication skills. I offer couples, pre-marital or married the opportunity to fully understand themselves and through that understanding to be a more effective partner.

You may be experiencing difficulties in your relationship which are causing you to evaluate whether you want to continue it, such as a breach of trust, infidelity, addiction, or abuse. Or maybe you feel that you and your partner are living like roommates and you are longing for a more intimate and loving connection. These are common reasons why couples seek therapy. As your therapist, I will make your partnership my number one priority, providing a fair, objective, supportive, and non-judgmental environment. A successful relationship does not hinge on who is right, but on how the couple navigates and recovers from ruptures and repairs within the relationship.

In 90266 - Nearby to Tarzana.

Many couples present in distress with a strong desire to enhance their relationships. I like to work with communication styles as well as explore some old patterns of relating that may have their history in early childhood experiences with their own families. Being able to identify these old patterns of relating to a significant other can help couples to understand why they bring these old patterns into their current relationship. After these patterns are identified, new ways of relating and communicating are explored and practiced. Listening skills and acceptance are important areas of exploration throughout therapy as well. Couples find new & satisfying ways of relating with each other.

Relationships are an area where young adults can struggle. Wanting to create lasting bonds, they don't always think about who is a good match for them, given their family values, and plans for their life. Past failed relationships can also leave sensitive young adults hesitant to open their hearts and try to find love again. I help sensitive young adults discover what it takes to create the loving relationship they've always dreamed of.
