Let's face it, relationships can be very difficult and confusing at times. I believe that it IS possible to have a satisfying and dynamic relationship in today's world, if we're willing to do the work. I help my clients to learn healthier ways to express themselves individually and to provide understanding and compassion for each other. I do this by teaching and practicing more effective listening and communication skills. Clients learn to focus on themselves as opposed to pointing the finger at their partner. My clients are continually excited about how these changes have transformed their once difficult relationship into a much more satisfying and fulfilling dynamic.

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist & Psychoanalyst

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

Choosing a partner and maintaining a relationship with that person is one of the most difficult and challenging tasks in our life. I see many couples who long for a more loving and satisfying relationship with their mate, but are unable for a variety of reasons to establish and/or maintain one. If you can communicate, you can bear almost anything! Couple's counseling can help both of you create a new and more satisfying way of being with each other. I coach you in how to create safety in talking about your experience and teach you to express your deepest thoughts and feelings, which ultimately creates a richer and more intimate relationship for you both.

Couples Counselor

Kristi Starkey, MS, MFT, #52051

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

I work from an emotionally focused attachment theory (EFT) when working with couples in Mission Viejo, CA. Research shows that humans are hardwired for a strong emotional bond. When a couple has relationship problems they experience an emotional disconnection with their partner at key moments. This leads to emotional reactions involving anger and criticism. I will work with you as a couple to help overcome those negative cycles and to re-establish your connection and strengthen your emotional bond. Through the exploration of emotions, reactions, inter-relations, and behaviors, you will be able to identify your pattern in relationship.

Couples Counselor

Mark Pines, MA LMFT

License Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

Are your arguments repetitive and futile? I bring a neutral third part presence into couples that can help defuse arguments and bring love back into the relationship. I believe most couple's struggles are neither party's fault, but rather the end result of negative patterns of interaction that can be reversed with the help of a (friendly) therapist. Finding the right person to help you is a lot to do with chemistry. Please call me at (949) 288-3123 if you have any questions at all. I want your therapy journey to be as successful as possible.

Couples Counselor

Cristy Pareti, PsyD, MFT

Marriage & Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

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.

Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

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? Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com to learn how! Or call 877-606-6161. DR. FLEMING'S NEW RELATIONSHIP/COUPLES INTENSIVES. www.kevinflemingphd.com/marriage-couples-retreats.php

Couples Counselor

Piper Glasier, MSW, LCSW, Psy.D

Psychotherapist/Psychoanalyst

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

Our intimate relationships are the place we search for the greatest meaning and are, ironicaly, the field most rich in landmines. Whatever is not worked through in us will be activated in these most important relationships. Learning your own sensitivities and your own 'buttons' as you learn those of your partner can transform your relationship from one of hostility to one of deep support and love. I have experienced this transformation firsthand many times and it is a privilege to see relationships restored and rebuilt on a healthy, solid foundation.

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

Meredith Hansen, Psy.D.

Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

Do you want to improve your relationship? Are you tired of arguing? Do you long for the days when you felt in love, on the same page, and connected? All relationships go through ups and downs and many couples doubt if they are "meant to be together" or "should try to making things work." In my experience, most couples who put effort into their relationship are able to improve their communication skills and rekindle the romance. It is possible for you and your spouse to enjoy one another again and effectively work through disagreements. I will help change the dynamics in your love life.

Couples Counselor

Marijane Ward, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

Couples come in all sorts of configurations, from Mommy/baby, to employer/employee, to parent/child/adoles. and of course husbands/partners/wives. Each of these couples are tremendously intimate and are often the very place we act out, feel grave disappointments and experiences some of our highest joys. This can be an optimum place of growth for both participants. It takes courage, honesty and a willingness to look inward and outward.

Couples Counselor

Julie Wells, M.S., LMFT

Licensed Marriage, Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

Every couple has moments of disconnection, but if the gaps are getting wider between you and it seems as if you no longer have anything in common, I can help. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), a proven effective short-term therapy that helps couples remember why they fell in love in the first place. As human beings, we all need of love, affection, and intimacy but sometimes the way we go about getting it can actually create more distance. Our partner only hears the anger, not seeing the anxiety underneath because we fear losing them. If you are wanting to to feel safe, happy and fulfilled again in your romantic relationship, I can help.

Couples Counselor

Hui Reccow, MA, MFTI

Registered Marriage Family Therapist intern

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

I enjoy working with couples in the areas of communication, life transition(s), intimacy, and love attachment. Each couple has a unique dynamic within them, where psychotherapy allows for deeper awareness into the individual and collective couple's relationship around wounds, pain, or possible trauma. The process offers a place and space to heal, forgive, and grow through love.

Couples Counselor

Lily Habte, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

We often hear about the value of communication in relationships. But what if one person continues to feel unheard while the other party feels helpless and nagged. Talking is only one part of communicating, listening is the other. And without the two existing together then there is likely to be a weak bond between the couple. I help my couples with effective and healthy communicating.

Catherine Wheeler, MFT

Dr.

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

Affordable couples workshops are offered once a month! Couples want to raise their relationship to a HIGHER LEVEL OF LOVE! Today there are tools to guide couples to improve communication, learn how to be a team, resolve problems without escalating, and regain their sexual desire, attraction and passion, when they both feel heard, supported and close. When relationships become stuck at a lower level of love couples lost desire and attraction, can't communicate with depth, and feel like adversaries on opposite teams! We build our whole lives on love, why settle! Dr. Wheeler has written several books (on amazon) that teach couples tools for heart-centered love!

Tammy Hyland, LMFT92625

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Lake Elsinore, CA

I specialize in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), a a highly effective method for healing relationships. Research has shown that 70-75% of couples who participate in EFT become closer and more intimate in their relationship, and 90% show significant improvements. As a trained EFT therapist, I am more interested in exploring the patterns and cycles that you get stuck in when facing conflict. How do you handle conflict? Do you become angry and lash out with your words, or do you shut down and tune out (or leave). How does your partner respond to you during these times? It is the dance between you that I am interested in exploring. Once we identify the dance, then we can work at change.

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Looking for a change? Online counseling is convenient, effective, efficient, and confidential.
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.
