Whether you want to deepen your relationship to yourself through individual psychotherapy , or with your partner in couples counseling, therapy can help you to create intimacy, gain insight and finally have the fulfilling relationships you have always wanted.   While intimate relationships are potentially the most valuable and satisfying part of our life, they often bring the most challenges and pain as well.  Marriage and Couples Counseling can help you have the satisfying intimate connection you desire.

Our therapy style is warm, genuine and direct.  We provide a safe environment to explore what isn’t working in the relationship while helping couples to successfully break painful dynamics, deepen intimacy and realize their full potential for a loving, equitable and healthy partnership. 

Couples Therapy can help you stop the negative cycle of problematic behaviors, thoughts and feeling.

The couple bubble is a term I like to use to describe the mutually constructed membrane, cocoon, or womb that holds a couple together and protects each partner from outside elements. A couple bubble is an intimate environment that the partners create and sustain together and that implicitly guarantees such things as:

♥ “I will never leave you.”

♥ “I will never frighten you purposely.”

♥ “When you are in distress, I will relieve you, even if I’m the one who is causing the distress.”

♥ “Our relationship is more important than my need to be right, your performance, your appearance, what other people think or want, or any other competing value.”

♥ “You will be the first to hear about anything and not the second, third, or fourth person I tell.”
— Dr. Stan Tatkin, Author of Wired for Love

Perhaps you struggle with intimacy or are feeling caught in a rut in your relationship. Or you are tired of having the same arguments over and over.  Maybe you are not sure about whether your relationship is going to work out, but would really like to give it a try. 

Or maybe, things are going quite well but you would like to improve your communications skills and deepen your connection with your partner.  Relationship counseling can help you with these issues. 

Have you ever noticed that you can see issues with a friend’s relationship that they just don’t seem to see? Or have you been on the receiving end of that observation? This is because when we are on the inside of a relationship, we are often too close to see the “whats and hows” of the problem. 

Having a sensitive and highly skilled therapist with an outside (and trained) perspective can be the key to bringing awareness and change into an otherwise stuck relationship.

As experienced couples & marriage therapists, we recognize your problematic patterns that keep you stuck in the same dynamic and provide you with skills and insight to break the cycle, so you may move towards the loving relationship you seek.

At North Berkeley Couples Therapy Center, our counseling style is warm and direct.  We provides a safe environment to explore what isn’t working in the relationship while helping couples to successfully break painful dynamics, deepen intimacy and realize their full potential for a loving, equitable and healthy partnership. We have assisted countless couples in reconnecting to the love, excitement and passion that initially brought them together
