I’m Ben Cohen, and my passion is helping individuals and couples have the thriving life and relationships they desire!

I’m a Certified Imago Relationship Therapist, and I meet with clients online, so if you are located anywhere in California or Colorado, we can work together.

How Can I help?

Whether you are struggling, and in immediate need of help; or, if you simply want to have a GREAT relationship, or find deeper meaning in your life and work–I am here to help.

Are you tired of having the same arguments over and over?  Is communication a challenge?  Are you longing for more connection and joy? If any of this fits for you, you are not alone!  These are just a few of the concerns that I have seen repeatedly over the years, and would be honored to have the chance to help you to navigate.

I have worked with hundreds of couples over the last 30 years, using a very effective marriage and couples counseling approach called Imago Relationship Therapy. This method was developed by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., author of the best-selling book “Getting the Love You Want”. I offer a variety of services to best meet your needs, including Weekend Workshops, Marriage Seminars, Private Couples Counseling, and Private Intensive Couples Retreats. Depending on your particular needs and resources, I am confident that I can help you improve your marriage/relationship.

What if we are considering separation/divorce?

If one or both of you are seriously considering separation or divorce, and you are trying to decide what direction to go before committing to couples counseling, I would recommend that we do short-term “Discernment Counseling” which is designed to help get clarity about this decision.  For more information, click here.

What if I’m Single?

If you are single or recently divorced, we will explore your patterns in relationship, and explore how to have more satisfying relationships with your-Self, and others.
