Too often we tend to our relationships after life's obligations have been met. However, that extra time is as mythical as a unicorn. Thus, our relationships get treated like a cactus, instead of the orchids that they are. And, like any orchid treated like a cactus, they wilt and their survival becomes threatened. But, if we treat an orchid like a cactus we don't blame the flower, unlike how we tend to blame our relationships. My approach to couple's counseling is mechanical. First, I help a couple to diagnose the problem(s). Then we do exercises to enhance intimacy, followed by exercises for solving problems and improving communication. I help couples to flourish as they used to.

Sometimes in a relationship the trust has been broken or you no longer feel loved and appreciated. Before contemplating divorce therapy can help restore the relationship. Attending therapy together can also assist you as a couple to define your needs and overcome resentments that may be intruding in your ability to move forward together.

Couples counseling seeks to improve relationships, whether the problem is as mild as daily bickering or a serious as infidelity. Without blaming or taking sides, our therapists foster increased communication between couples, getting to the root of serious issues, and focusing on the positive aspects of the relationship, and the characteristics of your partner that were initially attractive.

Couples therapy is available to partners in a variety of circumstances; any two people living together, employee and employer or any two people that have issues they do not agree on. Couples often come for help after they have reached a highly emotional state of mind. In order to resolve conflicts and understand troublesome difference of opinion therapy can be the proper way to move forward, eventually finding some peace of mind. Harlene Arenberg is from Scranton, Pennsylvania. She is a therapist and available for couples counseling sessions.

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist much of my work is with couples. Couples can be challenged in all stages of the life cycle: Pre-marriage, marital, living together, separating, divorcing, re-marrying, etc. Working with couples is a complex and challenging area of therapy which I particularly enjoy. Often the stakes are high. Helping couples come to a place where each partner is more whole and healthy and the relationship is strong and satisfying is a very gratifying part of my work.

Couples are two people who are old enough to enter into a relational partnership without parental approval. I work with lesbians, gays and heterosexual couples. My office is a safe place to discuss challenges that interfere with healthy couple relationships, and other concerns without judgment. Most couples know what's needed to jump start their relationship, but are unable to articulate their desire to one another.
