Sheri Rose-McCashin, M.S., LMFT,

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist (MFC 28036)

Pacific Palisades, CA 90272

A significant and ongoing relationship is hugely rewarding and worth the time and right effort. When a relationship is going poorly it can a lonely and miserable. I help couples feel safe enough to be open, and authentic. Being willing to share their experience of the relationship and deal with what is true for each person( which may be the same or may be different) is the way through difficulties. For there to be a connection there needs to be two. When someone is going along to get along or dominating/controlling the outcome of an interaction, or wanting the other person to be like they are couples get stuck. I help clients identify hurtful patterns and learn new ways of relating.

There are two things get in the way of a lasting, great relationship. First, couples often don’t know how to deal with the inevitable differences that come up between them. When two people in love see any given issue (money, sex, work, child rearing, etc.) from different perspectives they need to know how to engage rather than fight around them. Second, in spite of loving each other, they haven’t yet created a deep enough intimacy to help them stay connected even during the rough times. If this intimacy isn’t developed, resentments build and opportunities for closeness become less frequent. When you work with me as a couple, you learn to experience your differences in a way that brings you....

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?

When couples wish to work through their relationship difficulties, or do premarital couples therapy, they will find my office to be a safe, nonjudmental, and encouraging space. You will colaborate with your spouse, and prioritize issues you'd like to discuss. You will explore your own ability for acceptance and tolerance of your spouse's behavior. We will work together on communication skills, and styles, we'll try to soften the dialogue. We'll learn about problem solving skills with which husband and wife are heard. If there are sexual problems, I have experience in treating sex addiction, internet pornography addiction, and the affect of extended families on your relationship.

When you are looking for a couples therapist, you need someone who is trained in couples therapy specifically. Often therapists say they know how to help a couple, but one's training in couples therapy is typically limited to one class in their entire education! The focus of therapy is traditionally on the individual! Here at LA Therapy Network, several of our therapists have specific couples therapy training! We require all our therapists to be educated specifically in couples therapy. We are all trained in helping cuoples from a developmental perspective as well as providing practical strategies for communication and conflict resolution. GLBT families encouraged and welcome!

Couples Counselor

Sandra Dupont, MA, MS, MFT

Counseling, Coaching & Mentoring for Millennials

Within Driving Distance of Pacific Palisades, CA

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.

Gary Stollman, Ph.D.

Psychotherapist, Marriage Counselor, Professional Life Coach

Within Driving Distance of Pacific Palisades, CA

Problems you may be experiencing in your relationship do not occur overnight. It takes relationship neglect over time before significant problems develop. When you withhold feelings, especially feelings of hurt, the hurt soon turns into resentment. When resentful, neither partner can hear what is being said and you may then soon experience an "emotional deadening" where you and your partner feel as though you are more like roommates than soulmates. When the passion fades and the communication and connection fail, it's imperative that you seek counseling. Feel free to call my office for a free 15 minute phone consultation at 800-474-1445 or email me at Garydoctor@aol.com.

The two most important keys to a healthy relationship is communication & understanding how your partner wants to be loved. Clear and authentic communication is essential for a healthy relationship. A mindful partnership involves a place of understanding from where an individual is coming from. Clear boundaries and a respective responsibility of each other, as being unique is central for growth and belongingness. If a connection is fragmented, individuals cannot exist as one, than the relationship cannot be whole. Partners develop a dance around one another’s problems and develop dysfunctional patterns that are projected on the partner and world.

Shana Lutsky, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within Driving Distance of Pacific Palisades, CA

My work with couples has mainly focused on issues revolving around the very difficult and taxing effects of infertility and how this can affect one's relationship with his/her partner. In my practice I work with couples to help them better communicate and effectively listen to what each person is experiencing so that they can move forward in a space where they feel more positively connected.

Whether yo uare in a new relationship or have been in one for several years, there may be a barrier from preventing you to be in a healthy relationship with each other. Different forms of communication may be missing in that relationship such as lack of understanding and not hearing each others wants and needs. Therapy can provide listening skills and ways to improve your relationship on a daily basis.

Ellie Zarrabian, PhD, CMT

Founder & Spiritual Director

Within Driving Distance of Pacific Palisades, CA

All couples face challenges in a relationship. What makes some relationships last and others that don't is a combination of communication skills and commitment to making the marriage work. Many marriages test people to their limit, but that doesn't mean it's a bad marriage. If you are able to hang in there and work with a trusted professional, you can expand and grow into a more loving and nurturing person.

Couples Counselor

Gary Brown, PhD, LMFT, FAPA

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Pacific Palisades, CA

Couples are frequently referred to me by current and former clients, colleagues, and other healthcare professionals including physicians from several disciplines. More often than not, couples self-refer for help because one or both are feeling stuck and in pain. Sometimes there is an accumulation of hurts that have piled up. You need to talk about it. There are many benefits to couples counseling: enhanced communication, learning how to resolve conflict, creating more trust, growing intimacy, identifying triggers that can cause upsets, learning how to deal with the inevitable challenges that even the very best of relationships experience, and learning how to love at deeper levels.
