Couple often think that when they come to treatment it's the beginning of the end. This couldn't be further from the truth. My approach is about learning the communication styles of each person and connecting them by understanding each other better. It's an amazing process that can lead to deeper intimacy and a more successful relationship!

Meredith Silversmith, Relationship Coach

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 11743 - Nearby to Bridgeport.

I provide relationship coaching to support, empower, and teach couples how to be happy together again. So many couples are simply missing the tools needed to create the healthy relationship they want. Partners need to know the "rules" of healthy communication, fighting constructively, and repairing the breaks that occur between them. When you understand why couples fight and how unresolved conflicts snowball into deep resentment and unhappiness, you're able to help reverse it. I believe teaching the underlying principles allows each partner to trust the process and invest in making changes. Visit my website for more information: www.nassauwellness.com/meredith

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?

Theresa Evans Knight, MA, LMFT, MBA

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 06851 - Nearby to Bridgeport.

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.

Regardless of the length of the relationship, couples are constantly learning how to live as a unit while maintaining their individuality. This delicate balancing act can become frustrating and put a strain on the relationship. Knowing how to negotiate by using effective communication techniques, building trust, and respect will go a long way in enhancing your relationship and reducing strife. I can help you on this beautiful and rewarding journey as you both learn how to manage conflict and create ways to support each other’s hope for the future.

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 Marriage and Family Therapist

In 06477 - Nearby to Bridgeport.

"We just don't communicate" is what I frequently hear from couples. Is there something more? Usually, yes. What can really be happening? Anger, resentment, feeling alone in a relationship,hurt feelings, finances, infidelity, addiction, overwhelmed with child raising, stress, phew. All of these issues and others can take a toll on couples. Sometimes we all need help to sort through problems. Therapy can help. Giving ourselves permission to receive help, is half the battle. To accept therapy means you value your relationship enough to try. Therapy does not have to be long term and we can work together to decide on your goals.

Ilise Gold, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 06880 - Nearby to Bridgeport.

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.

Growing together with our loved ones can be an amazing gift. Somewhere along the line we sometimes struggle with those closest to us. We may bring our old emotional issues into a new relationship or perhaps we find our old ways of communicating with our loved one is no longer working the way it used to. Change is difficult but taking steps to increase communication and sort out our old beliefs that no longer serve us, can bring new light and joy to the relationships we cherish.

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

In 06824 - Nearby to Bridgeport.

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.

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.

Couples Counselor

Wendy Eisenberg, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

In 06825 - Nearby to Bridgeport.

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.

Couples may seek counseling for many different types of reasons. Coming to couples counseling is helpful as it allows for an objective third party to be present in a safe zone for discussion. In this space, couples can share their concerns equally and work on a variety of challenges, including communication, openness and honesty. Many times, counseling allows for each person to feel heard.
