Communication Skill-Building for Individuals and Couples (10/26/2016)

communication skill building, couples communication issues, couples therapy los angelesGood communication is an essential skill that can lead to satisfying connections and understanding if done correctly.  Unfortunately, when it is not done right, communication issues can lead to misunderstandings, rifts, and eventually even break-ups if not dealt with soon enough or properly.  In my practice in which I work with adult individuals and also do couples counseling, I frequently have clients with communication problems in their personal and/or professional lives which are causing them frustration and upset.  On the surface, good communication seems like it should be pretty easy.  In actuality, it involves many steps and is quite complex, which is why it is hard to do in a healthy, effective manner.

Set the precedent NOW — before your little one arrives — to send out one text or email a week (at least!) to see how your BFF is doing. “Paying attention and inquiring about your friend’s welfare helps the friendship stay on track where it’s still about the two of you, rather than just about you and your impending baby,” explains Yvonne Thomas, Ph.D., a Los Angeles–based psychologist specializing in relationships.

Singles and Dating:  Tips to Keep in Mind for a More Healthy Experience (03/30/2016)

los angeles therapistThrough the years as a psychologist, I have worked with many single men and women who have found that trying to date in Southern California is not easy.  Even though there are seemingly so many potential candidates here, people often are too busy or too disconnected from each other or are exposed to so many “choices” it can be hard to pick the “one.”  Actually, I remember reading an article years ago which noted that there may be around 39,000 “one’s” in the world that are right for each person, which gives everyone much better odds and much more hope in finding the right person than if there truly was just only one.
