Ilya Parizhsky, LMFT, Marriage & Family Therapist in Berkeley, CA


In working with couples, I use a Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT). Whether it's infidelity, too much fighting, problems with sex, money, or kids, what gets couples in trouble is a tendency to approach the relationship is usually just under the surface. Whatever the issue, there is something fundamental and basic that you could each be doing differently. Both people are using the wrong mode to approach the relationship, which leads to further alienation instead of connection. A PACT couples session shows you how to switch into a more workable mode, and gives you both tools for helping your partner get there when they're having trouble. It leads couples out of frustration and a sense that "this situation - and this person - is impossible." In PACT couples therapy we say that partners are "in each others' care" and should know each other and themselves well enough to be able to handle their partner in all circumstances.
