Hello, I am Dr. Sean Robertson and I work exclusively as an online Couples Counselor.

I know relationships can be hard, even though they’re also one of the most fulfilling parts of our life. In my online couples counseling, I create an empathic space for learning and deep connection, while also being diligent about ensuring that clients implement the tools.  I have a doctoral degree in behavioral psychology.  So my methods are based on both behavioral psychology and neuropsychology.  I also oftentimes bring in attachment psychology and the Gottman Method.

If you have done the RDP Couples Communication Course, we will work on fine tuning the skills taught in the course and delve into challenging areas. Working together, we will create new patterns that are more affirming of your wants and needs.  If you have never taken the course, I will teach you necessary skills before we head into difficult areas.

What is behavioral psychology?

Behavioral psychology helps us understand how situations in our relationship can activate negative beliefs, emotions, and coping behaviors. We also learn that we can shape our behaviors to be more aligned with our needs.

What is neuropsychology?

Neuropsychology is built on the premise that our minds have neural pathways that contribute to our habitual behaviors and that we can rewire these neural pathways, a concept called neuroplasticity.

What is attachment psychology and the Gottman Method?

Due to early childhood experiences, we are oftentimes hardwired in different ways. These differences can have big impacts on how we behave in our romantic relationships as adults. I will help you identify your specific “attachment styles” and how to work with them in your relationship.

I have formal training in the Gottman Method which places emphasis on shifting behaviors such as the "Four Horsemen" and increasing closeness in the relationship.  

In our Couples Counseling you will gain

  • Better understanding between you and your partner

  • Ability to know and express your needs

  • Deepen your connection

Couples Intimacy Coaching

I also help couples with a variety of sexual intimacy challenges.

  • Performance anxiety

  • Sex Addiction

  • Sexuality

  • Open and poly relationships

The price of my services is $225 per 50 minute session.

Most people need to meet weekly initially and then eventually go down to every other week or half-sessions.  I offer a free 15 minute consultation call to help discover if my services are right for you.  

My work as a couples counselor/intimacy coach does not involve diagnosing or treating clinical disorders and is not reimbursed by insurance companies. I do all of my work online and I see people anywhere in the country. I welcome all genders, sexualities, races/ethnicities, and relationship make-ups.
