Couples Therapy and Marriage Counseling

Have the Relationship You Want

“We’re always fighting!”

 

We all want relationships that are loving, safe, and satisfying. But, sometimes getting along seems like the most difficult thing in the world. We end up feeling distant, alone, and angry.  

Without even realizing it, we can find ourselves in relationships that are:

The Human Relationship is the Most Complex Thing on Earth!

 

So, it deserves and requires regular maintenance. Good relationships don’t just happen, they take work. Couples therapy and marriage counseling in Pasadena, CA, and Sacramento, CA is designed to do that. We use cutting-edge treatment based on attachment and bonding theory, neuroscience, and somatic psychology. Together, we can help you get back to the business of loving! 

What happens in couples therapy and marriage counseling?

 

Unlike other forms of psychotherapy, couples therapy and marriage counseling tends to work fast. Having you and your partner working together at the same time is very powerful. As a result, the length of treatment tends to be shorter. 

The first couples therapy session can be up to three hours long. This time is for gathering information about your relationship, separate childhoods, and goals for our work together. Later sessions are usually two hours in length and can occur weekly or every other week. 

What is your approach to couples therapy and marriage counseling?

 

I have received advanced training in Hakomi Psychotherapy, Relational Somatic Psychotherapy, and the Psycho-Biological Approach to Couple Therapy (PACT). Put together, these approaches form a powerful and unique approach to working with relationships. Couples therapy and marriage counseling are dynamic, experiential, and powerful.

What about surviving infidelity?

 

Surviving infidelity with infidelity counseling is possible. It takes work, courage, and dedication. You can get through it, I see it all the time. It’s not just about forgiving though. Both partners have work to do. You will come to understand what happened, why, and how to prevent it from ever happening again. This is all part of rebuilding trust. 

Through the powerful approach to couples therapy and marriage counseling, you can heal the wounds of betrayal. Your relationship can return to feeling safe, connected, and loved. 

What Kinds of Couples Do You Work With?

 

All kinds! Whether you’re friends, dating, needing some premarital counseling, or been together for 30 years. If you’re gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, transgendered, queer, intersexual, or asexual. A relationship is a relationship, pure and simple. It really doesn’t matter who you are or how you describe the nature of your connection. You are human.
