Our Patients

I cannot say enough about the amazing Dr. Kurt Bickford and Dr. Tracy Covington. Dr. Covington has been my therapist for over three years and she has treated me with the utmost respect, professionalism and a level of compassionate care that has surpassed all of my expectations. Additionally, I attend Living Consciousness classes at their Redlands office, led by Dr. Bickford, that are spiritually fulfilling and an integral part of my psychological healing process as well.

Drs. Bickford and Covington are the best clinical psychologist I have ever worked with. Clinically speaking, both have attained the highest degrees of training, education, licensure, certification, and practical experience available. To the extent of all things human, both surpass the level of compassion and empathy found in any clinical practice. While it may be difficult to get an appointment with Drs. Bickford and Covington, the wait is worth it.

This establishment offers so much more than what I initially came in for when I first stumbled across it last summer. Since then, I’ve been a regular of Dr. Covington’s (she’s an absolute gem) and taken quite a few classes and workshops led by her husband, Dr. Bickford. I have also started working with Reva (cranio-sacral therapy) and had the opportunity to connect with quite a few others in our community. They are real people who share their growth and vulnerability with you so that you genuinely feel like you’re connecting with someone when you’re opening up to them. You may have to wait to get an opening, but its worth it. I cannot explain in words what their services have done for me this past year. Overall, I simply know myself better and everything else begins here.

You may already be familiar with The Four Horsemen (criticism, defensiveness, contempt, and stonewalling) but now that our context has shifted on a global scale, it’s worth taking a closer look at each and how they might show up at home.

Though all of the four horsemen are damaging, Contempt is perhaps the most destructive. John Gottman describes contempt as “sulfuric acid for love.” Yikes.

So what is contempt? At its core, contempt is holding on to the negative belief that your partner is inferior or “less than.” It may manifest as sarcasm, hostile remarks, eye-rolling, mockery or mimicking, or sneering directed at your partner.

“Oh you’re so smart, huh?”
“You’re embarrassing yourself and me.”
“You just don’t know any better.”
“You don’t ‘feel like’ making love tonight? Big surprise!”

It conveys disgust. Ouch.

It’s a mean one, but it can be reversed. The antidote to contempt is building a culture of appreciation.

Cure nastiness with fondness and admiration. Appreciate the ways your partner is different, and that they have their own subjective, individual experience of things. Regard them as an equal.
