  • Emelina Bellé Couple Relationship Specialist & Sexual Intimacy Therapist Newport Beach

    Perhaps, you may still remember what it was like to be in love with your partner, and those memories seem like it was so long ago. Modern couples with demanding dual-career schedules face challenges in achieving a work-life-family balance, and being present and staying connected is difficult at best. Perhaps you are focused on career deadlines and raising the children and are just exhausted with no motivation. Even though you are together, that emotional connection and excitement have faded. We do not know where to begin to rekindle the spark of romance and passion. Over time responsibilities get in the way of spending time together, and what may have been a temporary disconnection has now settled into a consistent daily routine.

    When life gets in the way of intimacy, and you feel alone and disconnected from your partner, couples therapy can enhance a close connection, provide effective communication, increase affection and respect, reduce conflict, and develop emotional and sexual intimacy. We work together to heal and repair ruptures of betrayals and disillusionment and rebuild the connection. Come into an inclusive, non-judgmental, and safe space to work with scientific evidence-based research strategies and proven techniques for a joyful, loving, and meaningful relationship.
