While there are many wonderful aspects of relationships, it is not uncommon for there to be certain difficulties and challenges that develop over time. If couples do not quickly address and properly resolve these problems, they can fester and lead to resentment and ultimately to the breakup of the relationship itself.

As a Licensed Marriage Family Therapist, I help couples work through their challenges and strengthen their bonds. For many years now, I’ve provided effective couples counseling in Thousand Oaks, California and the surrounding areas.

Partners Getting Thousand Oaks Couples Counseling from Lori Kansteiner, LMFT, LAADC

Working as a couples counselor, I’ve been able to successfully assist clients with a wide range of relationship concerns and problems. One of the central challenges that couples often face is a partial or total breakdown in communication between the partners.

Rather than being open and upfront about what is bothering them, many couples find themselves unwilling or unable to engage in constructive discussions. The problems then are allowed to linger and exacerbate any tension that’s already developed.

At my warm and welcoming office, I provide a safe space for couples to speak freely and get their various frustrations out into the open so they can be worked on in a healthy and productive manner. With my experience in couples counseling Thousand Oaks, I recognize that expressing concerns to one’s spouse or significant other can be an uncomfortable and nerve wrecking experience.

Nevertheless, it is important for partners to fully understand how one another are feeling. In this regard, part of my work with couples involves helping them to express themselves in a clear and calm manner. When all frustrations and concerns are divulged, we can then engage in a constructive dialogue as we collectively work through these issues and come up with productive solutions.

In addition to helping couples improve their communication skills and resolve their problems, my Thousand Oaks couples counseling is also designed to help the partners grow as individuals and make positive changes in their own lives. It is quite difficult for relationships to be solid if one or both of the partners is struggling. As such, I teach clients how to manage stress & anxiety, and also help them move away from toxic behaviors and work on positive changes that will enhance their own lives as well as their relationships.

As people grow as individuals, so too can they grow as a couple.
