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?

I value and have a passion for all relationships to thrive. I successfully work with couples to enhance the quality of their relationship, and together discover better solutions to whatever is creating their dilemma or source of dissatisfaction. Being a couple is a tender, tentative, and promising bond. Yet it does not customarily benefit from the uniting, binding, and blending societal glue of law, traditions, religion, economics, or even language. Nevertheless, your relationship is meaningful, valuable, supportive, loving, and needing to flourish with fresh growth and deeper roots. Visit me at PhillyFamilyLifeCounseling.com; allow me to join with you to help create new possibilities.

I specialize in working with couples that want to enhance their communication skills. I look at the strengths of each partner and how they function together in a relationship. My approach utilizes emotionally focused therapy, aimed at looking at interaction patterns and emotional states. We all deserve to be in a relationship that we find fulfilling and meets our needs.

Relationship counseling is the process of counseling the parties of a relationship in an effort to recognize and to better manage or reconcile troublesome differences and repeating patterns of distress. The relationship involved may be between members of a family or a couple (see also family therapy), employees or employers in a workplace, or between a professional and a client. Somehow the simple act of walking while talking out life’s issues creates an environment of possibility and change - of forward movement. Through the rhythm of walking and talking there is a sync between myself and my clients. At a moderate pace, healing and breakthroughs occur.

I believe couples work is about finding common ground, letting go of resentment and old hostility, and recognizing its not about who is right or wrong. We can reconnect with new communication skills to regain the connection from early in the relationship. Often recognizing that a relationship needs nourishing is difficult, and once realized making a call for help is even more so. We are here to serve the people f southern New Jersey with professional and judgement/bias free services.

Do you find yourself wanting more for your current relationship? Are you desiring more closeness, intimacy and emotional connection with your partner? In the course of a relationship you may find that you are experiencing more frequent arguing and less frequent positive communication, but not sure why. I help couples gain insight into patterns and cycles that are keeping them stuck and unhappy. I have received training and use Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy in my therapy work with couples. These therapies are very effective in helping couples repair, renew and restore their relationships to previous levels of love, caring and closeness.

How to Get the Love You Want Take a minute to think about what you expect from a loving relationship with a partner. Does your list contain any of the following common expectations? o Healing past wounds o Meeting all of your current emotional needs o Fulfilling fantasies and idealizations of how life should be o Making up for other less rewarding aspects of life / making your life "whole" Any one of these expectations alone can be a very tall order! Not surprisingly, relationships often buckle under these kinds of pressures. So, what to do? Learn to take care of and give to the relationship; in other words, give instead of trying to get the love you want. Take care of the rel....

Anger is not an aphrodisiac nor is it helpful in getting more of what you want. Couples in conflict often focus too much energy on changing their partner. The problem is that each partner does not have direct control over the other. The way out is of this dilemma is to learn how to not get so upset over what you dislike in your partner. I teach each partner how to improve their relationship by first modifying their own behavior. By having better control over your emotional and behavioral reactions you can more constructively communicate, negotiate and influence your partner. I teach you how to get your message across and positively influence your partner so that you can enjoy the results!
