Alice Locke-Chezar, MFT, ATR

Marriage & Family Therapist, Registered Art Therapist

230 S. California Avenue. Suite 205, Palo Alto, CA 94306

Being part of a loving couple is hard work. My clients often come to me when they feel their lives and their relationship spiraling out of control. I help my clients to look back at what brought them together, to see what is currently tearing them apart, and to explore past family patterns and make certain they are not being blinldy repeated. As the elements of the current situation become clearer, I help my clients learn important tools to foster clear communication, understanding and empathy. Armed with greater understanding and important tools, they can heal their wounds and find joy comfort and support being together.

Connect2 Marriage Counseling Chandrama Anderson, MFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

667 Lytton Ave., Palo Alto, CA 94301

Couples call us saying they argue a lot, don't talk, are not intimate anymore, or there's been an affair. They don't feel heard or are misunderstood. Couples may resort to blaming one another, and losing the support they once had. It doesn't have to be this way. Our therapists work with you to feel better and be happier. Each therapist is highly experienced, and starts with you where you are. We are unbiased and build trust with both partners. We also offer Wrap-Around Couples Counseling, which offers additional support for each person and the process goes more quickly. Each person has his or her own therapist, as well as a couples therapist. Your care is coordinated among the therapists.

Couples Counselor

Jayn Rajandran, LMFT, CGE, DTS, MA I/O Psychology

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

665 Lytton Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94301

I am a certified Gottman's educator with a lot of research that supports my work. I try to assist couples in ensuring that the partnership is fulfilled, supportive, filled with passion and joy. The negative aspects of a relationship can be avoided if you are willing to explore how the influences of your family of origin, your life experiences and circumstances, could play out over time in your relationship. I will teach you tools and skills that will help you move forward, break bad habits, communicate in a healthier and respectful way in all aspects of your relationship. Sometimes I work individually and sometimes I work in the dyad, depending on what is standing in the way.

Dr. Jim Hutt, Ph.D., MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within Driving Distance of Palo Alto, CA

All couples run in to difficulties--some big, some small and most repetitive. Using state of the art techniques I can guide you through a process that helps you break the patterns of interaction with your partner that are causing the distance. Maybe you've lost the spark, and you want it back, or neither of you feels understood, and you desperately want to be heard. In my 30+ years of experience, it has become clear to me that couples need a way to connect or re-connect that works and lasts. I'll show you how.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

For a new short term, effective approach to Psychotherapy, give me a call or email, kevin@kevinflemingphd.com
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

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.
