Dr. Daryl Temkin

(Ph.D., MA, MFC)

About Me

I have been professionally working in the area of couple counseling for over 30 years. From 1990 to 2000, I taught and led the Making Marriage Work Seminars in Los Angeles, CA. Throughout those years, I personally worked with close to 1,000 couples in pre-marital and marital counseling. Pre-marital counseling is a most important endeavor and unfortunately is rarely done in America. Few families understand or are aware of the value that pre-marital counseling can bring to a couple. Pre-marital counseling issues can include exploring personal issues and couple issues and how they can integrate or disintegrate a relationship. Communication conflicts and breakdowns or lack of essential communication skills often are the root cause of pre-marital and martial conflicts. Learning and developing skills in effective conflict resolution techniques and styles is considered an essential topic to master in order to develop a sustainable relationship. Financial values and sexual values often come into conflict as well as family, work and child-rearing approaches. Open and contemplative counseling discussions and guided real life couple interactions can often open up the difficult topics which couples confront in their relationship developments. Couple counseling ideally is a process to allow both members of the couple relationship to learn about themselves and their partner's approaches to life and to advance understandings and methods to work together to build successful harmony that will sustain and enhance the couple or marital relationship. As a couple counselor, I aim to untangle knotted relationships and to help to achieve new and valuable paths for creating nuturing couple relationships. The couple's counseling process that I strive to achieve is meant to foster and promote emotional and spiritual health as well as to advance
and highly improve the couple's communication skills.

Dr. Temkin has been a delight to work with. My wife and I have been working with him for about 6 months and we have learned quite a bit from our sessions. We would recommend him to any couple looking to improve communication with each other!
