Build Healthy Communication Skills
“He/she just doesn’t understand.” It’s a phrase often experienced in relationships and can feel never ending. Staying connected and keeping the lines of communication open with your partner can be tough, but couples counseling can help you get reconnected. If you know your relationship is struggling with something but your partner isn’t opening up to you, our experienced team is here to help you reach them.
You’re not the only couple who has faced challenges and it’s ok to ask for help! Sometimes exactly what you need is a caring third party to step in. Our tools will improve relationship communication and allow you to connect in a healthy, open manner.
- Be able to choose the therapist you feel most comfortable with
- Enter a safe, non-judgmental environment with the freedom to express any emotion or thought
- Build a “toolbox” of healthy coping mechanisms to handle current, past, and future situations that arise
- Get support, encouragement, and guidance
- Walk away feeling happier and more confident
Let us help you and your partner build the tools for a healthy and solid relationship!
Our therapists have training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples counseling and thousands of hours of experience with relationships. We are passionate about working with you and truly care about the well-being of your relationship.
We have made our counseling hours fit your schedule with day, evening, and weekend time slots. We make booking an appointment easy with our online schedule. You get to pick the therapist, as well as time of the appointment of the counseling with just a few clicks.
Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) is a short-term couples therapy approach that has successfully proven to have long-term lasting results. We quickly and effectively find the cause of the problem and heal it, rather than simply patching things over with Band-Aids.
Our experienced team can help you find the perfect customized match for your relationship needs. We all share the same goal of accelerating your personal and relationship growth through the use of Emotion Focused Therapy for couples. Each therapist has proficient experience as well as a strong educational foundation, but you will have the ability to choose which counselor best suites your needs.
Do you feel like you and your loved one can’t see eye-to-eye? Do you often feel like you are communicating but the message falls on deaf ears? Or are you a parent or a teen who feels like your child/parent has suddenly turned against you? I understand that even those with great intentions for their relationships can get lost in the drama of everyday life, which can lead to walls in communication. When there are walls in communication, you may be placing yourself at risk for lowered self-esteem, depression, anxiety, and stress. Without change of some kind, you may be experiencing a frustrating cyclic effect. I can help facilitate a safe, nonjudgmental environment conductive to the changes your relationship needs, wether it be with your spouse, family, children, or parents. In sessions, focus would be on your personal goals, needs, and wants, and equipping your family/relationship with specific tools needed to break down barriers to communication long after the session has ended.
Are you ready to get off the “he said/she said” cycle and remember why you like your partner? Maybe you’re simply tired of feeling tired and know that something needs to change, but you’re not sure what. You don’t have to figure it out alone. My name is Rina Podolsky and I am a multicultural, bilingual Marriage and Family Therapist Intern (IMF# 94077). I earned my Master’s in Marriage and Family Therapy from San Diego State University after realizing how naturally supporting roles come to me. From affairs to mid-life issues, I help couples and individuals sift through what is weighing them down so they can feel, think, and make decisions with clarity and confidence. When it comes to relationships, think of me as calling in reinforcements: I am here to help you untangle, rebuild, and reconnect. Life and relationships may be challenging, but they shouldn’t be this hard all the time. Go ahead and schedule your first appointment; I’d love to get to know you more to find out how I can support you.
