Couples Counselor

Betsy Walli, MS, PhD

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist 85860

Within Driving Distance of Manhattan Beach, CA

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.

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.

Marriage & Family Therapist

1230 Rosecrans Avenue #300, Manhattan Beach, 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.

Clinical Psychologist, Marriage, Family & Child, Hypnosis

Couples initiate their relationship to satisfy each member's desire to be loved, connected, respected and enjoyed. In all relationships, life's demands impede on that fun. Rekindling those good feelings, mutual enjoyment, and respect becomes our therapy work. Sometimes, communication is more hurtful than constructive. Other times, you have become strangers instead of best friends. Sexual pleasures become disappointments. Parenting becomes distracting instead of successful teamwork. Money becomes a dispute, crippling a couples pleasures and goals. With so few couples succeeding in love and compatibility, couples counseling becomes a tool to re-ignite what's missing.
