Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Nutley, New Jersey 07110

In therapy, you will learn how to identify specific maladaptive behavior patterns and how you and your spouse respond to stress within the marital dynamic. Together, we will observe the dysfunctional behaviors within your marriage and modify them with problem solving and conflict resolution. In doing so, both you and your spouse can begin to understand and transform your patterns into more adaptive, productive behaviors. You will learn how to communicate respectfully and effectively. You will learn how to listen and how to make yourself heard. If you or your spouse comes from an unhealthy, broken or dysfunctional background, it can be helpful to utilize a psychoanalytic approach as part of treatment. In a psychoanalytic approach, we will explore the...(view profile to read more)

I usually see each person separately for a while to determine what the dynamics are and what each person brings to the relationship that is their own issues that need resolution.I will then see them together and achieve better results.My style of working with couples has been effective if both are ready to look at their issues and improve communication.

Our intimate relationships can be our greatest source of happiness or the source of our deepIest pain. My desire is to help you explore how your beliefs and choices have disrupted your relationship and have undermined your personal happiness. Good relationships require mutual respect, flexibility, and commitment. If you have lost your way and find yourself stuck in repetitive and destructive patterns of interaction, I can help you identify and understand what is driving those patterns and determine strategies for overcoming them.

Diane Davis, L.C.S.W.

Licensed Psychotherapist

94 Valley Road, Montclair, New Jersey 07042

Relationship can bring great joy as well and great challenges. Many problems stem from difficulty communicating with your partner. I can assist you in finding the way to express yourself, as well as the capacity to listen; to find the appropriate boundaries that enable you to feel free while staying connected. Working through conflicts in relationships often not only preserves the relationship, but also empowers each individual to be more confident and open in their own life.

www, Saving Your Relationship and Making It Work. Imagine how your relationship was in the beginning. I will help you build on those feelings, so that you can find the love that you have lost. I work with traditional and non traditional couples who are: dating, in long term relationships, living together, engaged, newly weds or couples who have been married for years. Some people say to me "Are you in favor of saving relationships?" My answer to them is: “Yes, as long as it is not physically and emotionally destructive to either of you.” Relationships are one of the most important things in our lives and it's not always easy go to:

Debra Feinberg, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Marriage counseling, couples therapy, premarital counseling and help with all tpes of relationship problems. I help couples dealing with all types of relationships problems such as dealing with conflict, communication, intimacy, and perhaps, infidelity. I'm experienced helping people with common relationship issues including problems communicating, fighting about sex (lack of or lack of interest), arguments about money, children, exes, not feeling respected, appreciated, or not making your relationship a priority. All relationships encounter problems from time to time and if you and your partner are unable to resolve issues on your own, therapy may help.

Wendy Pollack, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

1140 Bloomfield Ave Suite 229, West Caldwell, New Jersey 07006

I am always amazed at the strength and resiliency of couples. Helping couples see underneath the old patterns and reconnect on an intimate, emotional level can be very powerful. In this busy, hectic world, it is so easy to lose connection with our partner. Often couples get into patterns where arguments easily escalate and take on a repetitive underlying theme- 'our favorite fight'. Or they just drift apart until the divide seems impenetrable. And there is also often a loneliness - wanting to reach out but not knowing how. Sometimes they look elsewhere for that comfort only to find out it only complicate things more. I have done extensive training in Emotionally Focused Training for

Currently I work with couples to create a therapeutic alliance of trust and safety, to gain better insights about their life challenges, and to assist the clients in reaching their goals and connect better with their loved ones through improved communication patterns and increased intimacy. The pain and conflict of the committed relationship arise not out of lack of love for our partners, but from misunderstanding what love relationship is about.

H.C. Fall Willeboordse, LCSW-R

Fall Willeboordse, LCSW-R

244 5th Ave. Suite 9G, New York, New York 10001

Every couple is unique in the way the partners relate, communicate, and approach conflict--or fail to do so. For that reason I treat every couple according to its own very specific issues. If you feel you’ve been coming up against the same problems with no resolution, or have had a new crisis emerge in your relationship, getting help sooner rather than waiting can often repair and strengthen the relationship. I work short term and am solution-focused.

Carolyn AlRoy, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

19 West 34th St., Penthouse, New York, New York 10001

I get to know the couples as individuals and as a couple. So, I would start with a joint session with the both of you, and then see you both individually. The reason for that is that people share different information with and without their partner. All information is confidential, and the rule is "No leaking" (that is, not to talk about your individual session, with me, with your partner).

Tania Suarez, MSEd, LMHC, NCC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

352 7th Avenue, Suite 1001 , New York , New York 10001

Relationships take work, commitment, sacrifice, communication, and compromise. None of this is easy! And when you and your partner don't see eye to eye or have differing values, this becomes even more stressful and frustrating. I can help facilitate open communication between you and your partner to help you understand the root of your problems, how they are negatively affecting your relationship, and how to work through and resolve them. It's a process and takes time, but worth the effort if the relationship is important to you.

Barbara Bennett, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

245 west 29th Street, suite 304, New york, New York 10001

Relationships are hard, as any news site will eagerly tell you. Stories of celebrity affairs, break-ups and other scandals are so common that there doesn’t seem to be much hope for the rest of us. I’m here to tell you that there is hope, even after years of tension, conflict, or emotional distance for any couple—straight, gay, dating, married, post-divorce—from any racial, ethnic, or spiritual background. Conflict happens in all relationships. But it isn’t inevitable, even after years of bad feeling. I help couples step outside of their pain and frustration to see each of their roles in these conflicts. From there, couple can begin to communicate and finally have conversations that have productive outcomes leading to greater intimacy.

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Manhattan, New York 10001

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings?

You will learn the complicated dynamics that are occurring in your relationship on several different levels - emotion, behavior, and cognitive. You will each learn what you bring to the relationship as individuals and how that fits with your partner. You will learn communication skills and how to listen to your partner for content and emotion. You will have a safe space to talk about difficult issues. You may find increased intimacy with your partner. Couples counseling is not just for romantic relationships. Business and creative partners can also benefit from couples therapy.

Walter Masterson, LCSW

Psychotherapy and Counseling

1040 Avenue of the Americas, New York, New York 10018

Careers and children each place enormous stress on a couple’s ability to be together in an intimate and satisfying way. Every couple has different ways of dealing with the challenges, and counseling can provide the perspective and encouragement to re-create a shared vision for the future. For something as important as this, it is surprising how little training and preparation is provided; family therapy fills in the blanks, and resolves the confusion.

Bennett Pologe, Ph.D.


330 west 58th street - suite 601, new york, New York 10019

As has been the cry of physicians since the breed was invented: Why do you wait so long to come see me?! Research has shown that couples don't seek help for on average six years after problems emerge, by which time the resentment and problems have become long standing and unwieldy. By then, as any of you who have gone to couples counseling probably know, the therapy feels like too little too late and couples leave discouraged by the size of the problems. Solution: Go sooner! Even the best relationships require tending and attention, so when something is brewing that you can't resolve yourselves, don't let it fester. The sooner you go for a tune-up, the faster (and cheaper) it'll be.

Licensed Psychoanalyst, Licensed Clinical Social Worker

119 West 57 Street, Suite 720, New York, New York 10019

Has your relationship become something that isn't what you planned? Were you so happy as a couple in the beginning but now, years later, you find yourself asking questions like, "Who is this person?" Has the joy vanished? Do you wonder if you have a partner or a roommate? Has the passion disappeared? Relationships take work and can be difficult, and psychotherapy with Dr. Swensen might be just what you need. I can help you learn to talk in different ways to each other and express things that have eluded you in the past.

Phyllis Gildston, PhD, LMFT, LMHC, LSLP

Marriage & Family Therapist; Mental Health Counselor; SLP

Amsterdam Ave. & 70th Street, New York, New York 10023

As a licensed counselor working with warring or love-lost couples for over 25 years, I understand how you may range in your reactions—to infidelity, addiction, money, sex issues, and more—from frustrating annoyance to outright desperation, with everything in between. Communication breakdowns are typically a crucial component. One of my most helpful approaches for couples is Imago Relationship Therapy (in which I am board certified). I also incorporate, as needed, many other dynamic systems approaches, including Brief Therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy, and Attachment Therapy, to name a few. I believe that different unique and/or combined approaches are optimal for different couples. Whether you....

Dr. Nikki Nelson DiFranks

1841 Broadway, Suite 700, New York City, New York 10023

Although some clinicians may treat unmarried/married couples differently, I do not. This is because I do not take a position, often assumed with pastoral counseling, that a couple ought stay together. My aim is to assess what the couple and family system desires, and where there is disparity, to facilitate a solution that is viable for all. Often, I work to help a confused couple decide whether they wish to stay together, and if they do not, I can help them decide how to separate, as well as help other family members make this transition. Many times, couples/family therapy is about improving the relationships without intentions separation. Assessment of needs is critical to my approach.

Howard Rossen, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

59 West 74th street, New York, New York 10023

Maintaining and nourishing a meaningful relationship is far harder than anyone can reasonably predict. You and your partner are both independently formed individuals that "come together to form a more perfect union." But if we don't learn to adapt and respect the needs of our partner how can we grow as a couple? And if we don't honor our individual needs and desires how can we breathe within ourselves? It is this battle of mutual respect for our relationship while honoring the self-respect of our individuality that creates the chasm of a couple's conflict. A healthy and supportive counseling environment can begin the process of regaining the spark that was ignited the first time you met.

I am a certified couples therapist and mediator. For couples struggling with cycles of conflict and mutual misunderstanding, I will help you to understand how and why you keep falling into the same patterns and to learn new ways of engaging. I also work with spouses and partners who find themselves feeling alone and missing any spark of romantic connection to create new intimacy and aliveness. Perhaps you are both unsure of whether you should try to hold the marriage or partnership together. I offer the space and guidance to actively and clearly consider the pros and cons of your current circumstances, realistic hopes for the future, and the best path for both parties.
