RELATIONAL THERAPY WITH DR. BEN CULHANE  |  PSY.D.

Guiding People Toward Mastering the Art of Loving Consciously.

You can have a safe and exciting connection.

Dr Ben Culhane

I understand that relationships can be complex and challenging. That’s why I have studied and trained in multiple approaches to help couples overcome relationship issues and build stronger, healthier connections.

Couples therapy is designed to help partners understand each other’s perspectives, communicate more effectively, and resolve conflicts. Whether you’re facing common issues such as poor communication, infidelity, or differences in parenting styles, or more complex challenges such as emotional or physical intimacy problems, I can help.

I also help healthy couples who want to take their relationship to the next level, deepen their intimacy further, and add powerful tools to their relationship toolbelt.

I take a strengths-based approach to couples therapy, helping partners to build on their existing strengths and develop new skills to improve their relationships. I use a variety of evidence-based approaches in my couples therapy sessions, including Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), the Gottman Method, Real Life Therapy (RLT), Imago Therapy, Internal Family Systems (IFS), and others to provide comprehensive and effective treatment for couples.

What do I provide and how do I help guide you to the relationship you want?

  • Tools for repair and reconnection
  • Methods and structures to resolve conflict.
  • Tips to support and nurture each other.
  • Practices for deeper intimacy.
  • Strategies for understanding where you are stuck.
  • Exercises for creating new patterns of interaction. 
  • New approaches to more connecting communication.

In my practice, I am committed to helping couples build strong, healthy relationships. If you’re facing challenges in your relationship, I invite you to schedule a free consultation with me today. Together, we can work towards creating a happier and more fulfilling relationship for you both!

I currently offer marriage counseling and couples therapy sessions both in-person and online through secure video-conferencing for my clients in California. 

What does that look like?

You’ll understand how each of your learned relationship interactions are keeping you stuck instead of moving you forward.

You’ll replace the unsuccessful communication with a more rich and effective style.

You’ll learn the art of listening to each other.

You’ll see what each other needs and know why.

You’ll start sharing love how each of you need it and feeling connected.

​Both of you have needs for love and connection.

​I HELP EACH PARTNER HEAL AND GROW, DEEPEN YOUR CONNECTION, THEN GUIDE YOU TO THE NEXT LEVEL IN YOUR RELATIONSHIP. WHAT’S THE NEXT LEVEL?

  • Feeling whole AND connected
  • Mastering masculine and feminine attraction
  • Deepening your intimacy
  • Keeping your heart open
  • Co-creating love and sacred union
  • Sharing your truth with gratitude
  • “Response-availability” for your partner
  • Honoring each other’s experience

THIS KIND OF CONNECTION FROM EACH OTHER IS POWERFUL… IT’S LOVING! AND I WILL SHOW YOU HOW TO GET THERE.

UNCOVER THE TENDERNESS.

I help people re-connect and find a deeper intimacy and love, one that is filled with safety and trust. Find the freedom from the hurt and pain. The love you once had or want to develop with each other is just waiting for you. The compassion and tenderness is right there under the surface. You’ll be shown how to uncover it. Together.

BE HEARD AND UNDERSTOOD.

Learn to replace reactivity with a loving response. Learn the communication tools to connect and to share so that your partner will hear you, will understand what you’re going through, and give with an open heart. You and your partner will develop the tools to listen and respond.

CO-CREATE LOVE.

Hundreds of couples have healed the heartache and grown through the struggles in their relationship. You can create the love you’ve always wanted. And you both deserve it.
