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?

Couples Counselor

Joyce Colburn, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Bridgeport

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.

Every couple experiences conflict. A little conflict in relationships is natural and can even be healthy, especially if it leads to compromise. But if you constantly lash out with belittling, contemptuous behavior or have become avoidant or withdrawn, then relationship counseling can help. With over 10 years experience working with couples, I can help you and your partner to identify, explore and address unhealthy thoughts, actions and behaviors that lead to stress and learn how to restore harmony, passion and teamwork to your relationship. With the help of a professional, unbiased, empathic therapist, you and your partner can become friends, lovers and confidants again.

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.

Couples therapy can be beneficial for those who participate in it to help understand options you may not have thought of, or felt your partner was not open to, understand relationship patterns and how they affect your communication, and some of the main reasons behind reactions and intentions. It is also a great way to look at new possibilities for the relationship, and learn how the way you say something may effect your partner and it's effect on the relationship.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker / Psychotherapist

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.

Lenore Millian, Ph. D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Bridgeport

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.

Regardless of the length of the relationship, couples are constantly learning how to live as a unit while maintaining their individuality.

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.

Couples Counselor

Theresa Evans Knight, MA, LMFT, MBA

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of 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.

Couples Counselor

Kelley Hopkins-Alvarez, LPC,NCC,BCC,MS,MSEd

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

Within driving distance of 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.

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".
