Couples Counselor

Sharon Depowski, LCSW, CADC

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Alcohol/Drug Counselor

311 E. Dickens Avenue, Northlake, IL

I recognize that each couple is unique, in their approach to life and to each other. I would focus on their strengths, especially as work on their problematic areas began. I encourage open communication but discourage name calling; I also encourage the use of "I feel" statements. I would be interested in their individual life histories in that the baggage we bring to relationships cannot be removed, but responses to behavior can be altered. And sometimes awareness of why an individual acts and/or feels a certain way can be quite helpful.

Daniel Kill, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

1101 Lake St, #405H, Oak Park, IL

For over 35 years I have been providing couples counseling. Foremost this counseling is based on the current strengths that the relatonship brings to therapy.A relational assessment assists in identifying areas of improvement for the relationship. As successful communication is an essential element in all successful relationships, couples communication is a critical element of assessment and intervention. Couple counseling teaches couples to be more accepting of each other while at the same time working to change some of their assumptions and automatic behaviors. Homework assignments are an essential element of counseling and John Gottman's research is integrated into therapy.

Kristen Jacobsen, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor / Therapist

1010 Lake Street, Suite 501A, Oak Park, IL

Relationships are built on pillars of trust and aligning values. I utilize John Gottman's research on marital stability in my practice. I also focus on the use of Gary Chapman's five love languages as a way to explore whether each person is getting his/her needs met most effectively in the relationship. I typically work with younger couples who have not yet entered into the sacrament of marriage or are recently married.

Couples Counselor

Charles Hughes, MA, LCPC, DCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Tele-Counselor

1025 North Blvd. Ste 204, Oak Park, IL

Contrary to popular belief, we are not born knowing how to create a good relationship. Unfortunately, we often don’t learn it in our families either. The good news is that there is plenty of research on what makes relationships work. You can learn the secrets of successful couples; what they do; what they don’t do. Being a happy couple is not about being a saint. It’s about reacting more effectively when your partner is being, let’s be honest, a jerk (male or female variety). Equipped with new knowledge and skills, you might be surprised how easy it is to create the kind of love and respect in your relationship that you thought was reserved for the lucky few.

Couples Counselor

Susan Steffey, Ms.ed, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

2 Mid America Plaza, Oak Brook Terrace, IL

Couples therapy is akin to marriage counseling for me. Again I try to address any underlying issues and like to see each partner seperately at least once. Often times one person is in crisis and the couples relationsip is seriously affected. Sometimes it's a matter of helping one person to learn how to support the other and to help foster healthier communication.

Couples Counselor

Teri Murphy, MS, LCPC, CADC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

115 E. First Street, Suite 2W, Hinsdale, IL

Couples counseling in one of my areas of expertise. Many clinicians refer couples to me because of my years of success in working with this population. I believe each couple brings in their own unique set of circumstances, thus I do not use one standard "formula" in my approach. You will find your time in therapy with me as an experience of feeling respected, being deeply understood, with the ultimate result of positive and constructive change in your relationship. Are you ready to find fulfillment and joy in your partnership? If so, then please contact me at your convenience.

Couples Counselor

Donald Olund, MA, LCPC, NCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

911 N Elm St. Suite 316, Hinsdale, IL

Some of my clients call it a gift. I know it is my passion. Couples counseling is a perfect fit for me. I get energized whenever a new couple comes to see me. As a communication, relational specialist, I get to know my couples individually and as a couple by taking time to carefully listen and understand them. This allows me the opportunity to help them understand each other and where they are likely stuck in their relationship. Once I identify the negative pattern, I assist the couple in shifting the pattern into one that is mutually respectful, caring, accommodating, and enriching. As a result of my extensive couples work I am currently writing a book on respectful relationships.

Couples Counselor

Valerie Piazza, RN, LCPC, C-MI

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

5757 S Madison, Hinsdale, IL

A “Couple” is not only 2 people who are married. If you are experiencing conflict with a significant person in your life; someone you are committed to in a relationship, engaging in counseling together can be beneficial. Learning better communication skills, new ways of listening, and gaining a deeper understanding of each other’s world, can greatly improve your relationship. I enjoy working with couples and have found that often after only a few sessions there is a positive shift in their lives.

Couples Counselor

Dene Stamas, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

2 East 22nd Street Suite 302, Lombard , IL

A major part of couples counseling is learning to be a partnership. Most people never learned how to be a partnership. Some common ingredients are good communication, healthy rules, good listening skills, fair fighting techniques, and similar goals. Couples need to learn to be a team and support and encourage each other. Some healthy rules are: No put downs, no guilt provokes, no secrets, in a disagreement say "this is my perception" vs. "this is how it is", and never go to bed angry.
