Relationship / Marriage Issues

Every relationship comes with its fair share of issues. Navigating the complexities of life together is hard enough, but when you start to feel regularly distressed or hopeless, about your relationship, it may be time to seek professional help. No matter what your issues seem to stem from (disagreements about money, sex, stress, chronic illness, mental illness, infidelity, trust, emotional distance, parenting etc.), if you and your partner are arguing more frequently and experiencing feelings of resentment or contempt, it is likely that there are some underlying problems to address. Because many problems in relationships are a result of communication issues, a qualified mental health therapist can teach you to find new ways of talking to each other to help you find your way back to common ground.

I'm excited about the relationship work with couples! So many people want love and want to make things work, but they don't know how! I look forward to working with couples as they explore how they may have gotten off course, sticking points, ways they can begin to get back on track and how they can continue to thrive as a couple in the future! I especially look forward to work with Twin Flames and taking the partnership to union!

Your relationship is hanging by a thread and it is not improving no matter how hard you try. You and your partner are stuck in the same argument loop every night, and it has come to the point that arguing isn’t even worth it. All things can be improved, changed and bettered, with just a little support, no matter how big or small. With couples therapy, you’ll learn how to communicate your feelings and needs, and get what you want out of your relationship.

You can finally feel seen, heard, and understood again. You can improve your intimacy. And I can help you get there.

— Ross Kellogg, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist in Carlsbad, CA

So many of us are searching for who we truly are. We’re so encapsulated in who we should be being for others, that we end up losing ourselves. This shows up most frequently in intimate relationships. Our desire for unconditional love from another supersedes our need for physical connection. Emotion trumps sexuality. And what goes on within our mind shuts down the abilities of our body. Unfortunately, sometimes relationships aren’t easy and sex can suck. I’m here to help fix that.
