San Francisco relationship and couples counseling

    Relationships are as necessary to most people as air and food. They literally
    are the emotional sustenance we rely on for a healthy, happy life. At the
    moment we come into the world, we are utterly dependent on others, usually
    our parents, for our most basic survival needs. When these needs are not met
    in certain important ways, we can develop ways of interacting with the world, or
    “scripts”, that influence how we experience life, what we expect from it, and
    what we are willing and able to give to it. These scripts, or interpretations, are
    taken into every new relationship we form.    When a relationship is going well,
    there is often no greater pleasure available to us. We feel met, “in love”, loving,
    “on top of the world”. However, no relationship is a static entity, never
    changing. Every relationship will have its difficulties, its ups and downs. People
    come to see us when these cycles start to stay negative, or when a relationship
    begins to offer more in the way of pain than pleasure. Sometimes this goes on
    for years before help is sought.  Couples Therapy and other forms or
    relationship work (families, triads, systems, etc.) requires special skill, training,
    and aptitude. It is one of several specialties we offer at Golden Gate
    Counseling Center. If you and your partner have been suffering in your
    connection, why not take the risk to reach out and explore what help is
    available? We are skilled in Systems Theory, Gottmann work, Emotionally-
    Focused Couples work, and Imago Therapy. We look forward to your call or e-
    mail soon.

Conflict can be healthy!!!

    Many of the great lessons of an individual's life come from working through

    The biggest problem is that most people have not experienced healthy conflict
    resolution. I work with couples, families and even businesses to provide space
    for conflict to happen and be supported and resolved.

    Unexpressed conflict causes much resentment: relationships become
    burdensome and cumbersome. The people who we love the most begin to
    look like enemies.

"Power Dynamics in Relationship"
    Most times couples are not aware of how the advantages of one person in the
    relationship can deeply affect the other. Issues such as educational level,
    psychological awareness, spiritual growth, emotional awareness and earned
    income can easily affect the couple.

    These advantages can be used in support of the relationship or can be utilized
    as weapons.

    Our center lead workshops on "Power Dynamics in Relationship." This
    is a revolutionary way to look at the ways individual and cultural power
    can unconsciously hurt partners. The dynamics are very similar for
    heterosexual couples as well as queer couples, so the workshops are
    open to all.
