For individuals and couples who want to be the best they can in every area of their lives.

Looking for relationship counseling, premarital counseling, couples counseling or marriage counseling in Newport Beach, Orange County? Need help with communication, connection, conflict, intimacy, or sex? Are you in a relationship and feeling anger or anxiety? Are you afraid that someone else is going to replace you? Or that your significant other might have feelings for someone else? Does it feel like the person you are dating takes you for granted?  Are you in an abusive relationship? Did your relationship used to be a great source of happiness in your life, but it brings you the greatest pain and hurt and you don't know where to turn? People who are dealing with these issues decide they want to see Dr. Nikolaidis.

I am a psychologist and couples therapist and I help individuals and couples get back to experiencing your relationship as your greatest source of happiness. As an expert in relationships, I completed many years of clinical and research training with world leaders in the specialty of relationships and relationship success, including Dr. Arch Hart, author of Safe Haven Marriage: Building a Relationship You Want to Come Home To, and Dr. Galen Buckwalter, Founder and Chief Scientist of eHarmonythe #1 most trusted online singles dating website.

I help couples become emotionally connected. I enable couples to feel emotionally safe, cherished, loved, valued, respected and understood. I help couples talk about their feelings and heal their hearts so they can draw closer to one another. I help couples foster a close and secure attachment bond, enabling them to problem-solve, utilizing the skills and techniques they possess naturally or that they acquired.

Have you stopped having sex or does it feel like your partner is not as passionate about you as they once were? Do you have difficulty resolving problems and find yourself blaming each other? Or maybe you have trouble speaking up or being heard, or find yourself having given up hope because you are stuck in unhealthy patterns that undermine the relationship? I can help. In couples counseling and marriage counseling, I work with a wide variety of couples, from people who are dating, to couples who are seeking premarital counseling, to those who are married. I see monogamous and nonmonogamous couples to polyamory or polyamorous couples, and also individuals in a couple who feel they would benefit to be seen individually. I help lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT), and heterosexual couples.

Is jealousy or job stress wearing you down? I help to rebuild the marital friendship and help couples to resolve conflicts. As a couples counselor and marriage counselor, I help couples identify their strengths in each other and also as a couple. I help couples improve their communication. I use Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for Couples. Counseling is often short-term, 8 to 20 sessions. CBT is research-based, and studies have found that 70-75% of couples go from distress to recovery. Additionally, 90% show significant improvements. CBT is also also effective in helping individuals and partners who suffer from anger, depression, and anxiety. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) has been shown to be effective in more than 1000 studies for relationship problems and marriage problems.

As a couples therapist, my goals with couples include expanding and reorganizing key emotional responses, which is the music of the attachment dance. I help partners create a shift in how they interact with each other and learn how to initiate new cycles of how they interact with each other. I help facilitate the growth of a strong bond between partners. I can help an angry partner who is numb and withdrawn learn how to assert himself. I can help him to go from not wanting to talk to his partner, to being able to express how much he wants to be close to his partner. I can help a partner who is afraid and sad to ask for and elicit comfort, to help her communicate how she needs him to hold her and reassure her.

I help each partner in the relationship feel heard and validated, and I also take a collaborative approach with couples, and help them draw on their strengths to bring them closer together. I can help you to map key moves and moments in the change process into steps and change events. I help couples to become aware of the change process and predictors of success. If these words speak to you, I encourage you to contact my Newport Beach, Orange County offices 24/7Call, click or text at (949)791-7127
