I work with couples who are in the early, middle or long term places in their relationship because people seek assistance for various reasons! Life is very stressful these days with a lot of pressure and stimulation from social media, work, finances and family. Often, communication patterns can be improved or expectations clarified. I have offices in Manhattan and Great Neck to meet your geographical needs. Short term counseling can help you move in a positive direction.

My approach to couples counseling is unique. It is not about telling me your problem and having me find a solution-it is about facing each other and communicating and together perhaps ironing out a solution. There is no "he said, she said"! The structure of the session is set in a safe and healing environment that allows each of you to face one another and find the words you want him or her to hear but haven't been able to say and perhaps retrieve the love you lost. There is no problem too big or too small. Come to couple counseling and see what you can salvage; and if you cannot I will help you separate in peace and harmony. Partners in business can also find couples counseling useful.

I utilize an eclectic approach when working with couples which includes Imago Relationship Therapy and a number of other processes that help each partner feel fully heard and understood. My goal is to help you connect in a way that fosters empathy and taking responsibility for one's role in the problems which brought you to therapy. My clients often say, "I never felt like he/she heard me before. Not like this." Couples often say that they come to therapy because their relationship is not working and they want to make it work. When couples allow me to show them "another way" to improve their communication and connect with each other the results are transformative.

People have different life experiences, cultural backgrounds and often different religious backgrounds. Those factors combine to shape who they are and influence their perceptions, behaviors and approaches to dealing with differences that occur in any relationship. My job is to first help the couple sort out causes for the problems. From that basis I focus on helping them implement specific skills for overcoming repetitive counter-productive interaction to improve understanding and communication with better conflict resolution ability for restoring and growing a stronger and more satisfying bond

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.

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.

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....
