Welcome to A Couple's Place California

You may be visiting this webpage because you realize that your marriage or relationship isn't where you want it to be. These feelings can range from missing the fondness and admiration that you once felt to a dramatic disconnect, such as happens with an affair or other crisis. Please don't assume that you are alone if this is the case because you are not. Many couples go through dramatic challenges in the lifetime of their relationship. This is true for healthy and unhealthy relationships. It is a positive sign that you are gathering information and taking an active approach to turning things around. Sometimes the strongest change agent of all is deciding that things need to change.

‍A Couple's Place is a center for couples to learn science-based tools to keep your communication healthy and your relationship strong.  ALL couples are welcomed at A Couple's Place including engaged, married, straight, gay, lesbian and trans couples. Our approach spans the continuum from education to in-depth counseling using Gottman Method Couples Therapy that is designed to get results. We offer private couple sessions, private couple retreats, pre-marital/pre-commitment therapy and discernment counseling.

Weekend Couple Retreats and Intensives

California's Couple Retreat is designed especially for the couple seeking a more focused, intensive approach to couples counseling. Over the weekend you can move through specific issues and learn important new skills in a short period of time. Typically we will work online or in person for 2.5 days Friday to Sunday. Prior to coming in,  we will conduct a brief interview over the phone or zoom and once confirmed for the weekend, you both will separately complete the Gottman assessment packet online.
