My book, "The Second Wives Club: Secrets for Becoming Lovers for Life" gave me recognition as an "expert" in the field of couples and marriage counseling. My approach is very direct, with much feedback, and emphasis on communication skills. It is very important for me to get to know each person individually in order to help them understand and overcome their part in the conflict . We then are able to have more effective joint counseling sessions. A relationship (like a garden) must be nurtured.

Licensed Psychologist

Working with couples, married or not, is an endeavor that I approach with great care. There seem to be certain themes that arise over and over again, so much so, that these issues demand to be recognized. I am always on the look-out for one partner who feels invisible or taken for granted by the person they have chosen to couple with. Expectations at the beginning of relationships tend to be dazzling and are usually based on hopeful fantasy. What can go wrong is that those expectations turn out to be dashed when two people start to get to know each other in a deeper way. In counseling, I strive to get couples to embrace each other's imperfections and to see each other realistically.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 06880 - Nearby to Bethel.

My approach to working with couples begins with seeing both clients together to gain an understanding of their dynamic as well as the individual issues (including family of origin) that have brought them into therapy. I then help them determine their goals as a couple and develop a treatment plan, including empathic listening, relationship exercises, and communications counseling, that will help them achieve their objectives.

Ilise Gold, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 06880 - Nearby to Bethel.

Working with couples individually/collaboratively without blame or shame, assisting partners in understanding their role in the conflict, has been a primary focus of my 30+ years of clinical practice. I teach couples that there is no right way to live.The framework and ingredients are defined by each person in the relationship. Connection, not control, engagement, not enmeshment allow for ongoing individual growth and relationship capacity. Personal awareness, acknowledgement, new attitudes and behavioral action all contribute to building a bridge between partners. I assist my clients as they look to themselves not the other to create ongoing growth, capacity and fulfillment of commitment.

Marie Fennell, M.A., L.M.F.T.

Marriage and Family Therapist

In 06804 - Nearby to Bethel.

Different stages of life can cause stress in a relationship. The birth of a child, or a child leaving home, a parent moving in, or change in career are just a handful of examples of the types of life changing events that can stress any relationship, no matter how close you are or how long you've been together. I like to work with couples as they experience the changes taking place in and around their lives, and understand how the changes can impact their relationship.

Couples Counselor

Laura OKeefe, LCSW

Psychotherapist / Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 10560 - Nearby to Bethel.

Some therapists may recommend to a particular couple that the partners engage first in individual therapy, separately, before engaging in couples work. If both partners are not able to maintain a certain level of insight, responsibility, and maturity in their communications, couples work will be ineffective. For relationship counseling to significantly help a relationship, each partner needs to have a commitment to the relationship, or, at least to the couples counseling for the time it continues. Each partner must be generally honest, self-aware, and interested in doing relationship work to have an optimal outcome. Some couples need therapy to help end a relationship in a healthy manner.

John Gerson, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

In 10536 - Nearby to Bethel.

I am an institute trained couples therapist, and have been practicing couple therapy for 40 years. When the two of you come to see me you will feel a sense of warmth, safety and understanding. You will benefit by the strategies I will suggest during sessions, as well as through homework assignments. It can be a very odd experience to simply talk to your spouse, with no distractions (children, obligations of the day, etc). Not infrequently life is so complex that partners can only talk to each other in a session, behind a closed door, with no expected interruption. You will learn to create and sustain emotional intimacy, and your sexual connection with your partner is bound to improve.

Couples counseling is about partners working to see each other as people, to understand where they are coming from, and to negotiate those differences that can be negotiated and accept those differences that cannot. Couples all have issues that stay with them; the key is to build a line of communication that helps provide an emotionally safe platform to talk about those issues, to find solutions, and not have problems that emerge in life become overwhelming. Counseling acts as a form of healing for troubled partners and as a preventative measure for many large problems that may loom in a couple's future.

LICENSED PROFESSIONAL COUNSELOR,National Certified

In 06478 - Nearby to Bethel.

Behavioral Marital Therapy is used focusing on individual responsibility for his/her actions and level of satisfaction in the relationship.Couples identify desired changes in behavior and then talking about new actions. Couples make agreements or contracts and learned communication and problem solving. Self-regulation on the part of both partners to achieve mutual satisfaction in the relationship was embraced as a key component to what was increasingly called "couples counseling" rather than "marital counseling".

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

In 06877 - Nearby to Bethel.

Couples are my passion! When was the last time you had an open conversation with your partner about sex? About emotional intimacy? About communication? We look at the negative cycle that has swallowed you both up, causing stress and disconnection. I am also an affair specialist and have worked with countless couples to sift through the incredible pain to see if there is anything left of the relationship to be salvaged (in many cases, there is). I have met many couples who come in as roommates, where deep wounds are present. Couples feel like my office is a safe place to share, connect, get questions answered and get the professional help that they have needed.

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 06615 - Nearby to Bethel.

Are you tired of the arguments, the nagging, the lack of connection in your relationships? Are you feeling that someone close to you is headed down the wrong path and you don’t know what to do? Has your partner been unfaithful to you? Are you considering a separation or divorce? Do you want to ensure that your current healthy relationship stays on course? How you define a relationship is personal to you, but most would define a personal relationship as involving emotional connections and bonds. Intimate, close relationships can bring out our best selves and occasionally our worst (most vulnerable) selves. Relationships can highlight patterns of interaction learned in our own childhood.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 06851 - Nearby to Bethel.

Communication and respect are often considered the cornerstones of a fruitful relationship. However, often times couples loose sight of the things that initially brought them together. Spending hours talking to and listening to their significant other, date nights, movie nights and outings with friends and family. These treasures often get pushed aside when the reality of life gets set in motion. I work with couples in clearly defining the goals and objectives of their relationships, addressing challenging misconceptions, infidelity, family and work related issues. Couples who work hard and develop clear goals often reap the benefits of better communication, intimacy and love.

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?
