Juan Pablo Galavis and girlfriend Nikki Ferrell are making progress, Couples Therapy Dr. Jenn Berman says, though there is clearly room for improvement.
On Couples Therapy Season 5 Episode 7, and pretty much every episode prior to that, the two personalities have shown how deep their issues run.
Nikki's penchant for throwing fits when she doesn't get her way and the way Juan expresses emotion and affection (he doesn't) have been constant themes.
But Berman says they're coming along as a couple despite all this.
"Juan Pablo and Nikki have evolved through their therapy," she tells People of The Bachelor's embattled winning pair. "But there's more work to be done."
"There are some specific things about Juan Pablo that have caused him to hold back, but both he and Nikki open up more and more as they go through therapy."
One big piece of advice she has for Nikki Ferrell and Juan Pablo?
