Marriage and Family Therapist

In 06804 - Nearby to Bridgeport.

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.

Psychotherapy and Counseling

In 11743 - Nearby to Bridgeport.

Careers and children each place enormous stress on a couple’s ability to be together in an intimate and satisfying way. Every couple has different ways of dealing with the challenges, and counseling can provide the perspective and encouragement to re-create a shared vision for the future. For something as important as this, it is surprising how little training and preparation is provided; family therapy fills in the blanks, and resolves the confusion.

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.

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.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker / Psychotherapist

In 11724 - Nearby to Bridgeport.

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.

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.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker-R

In 11787 - Nearby to Bridgeport.

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 Counselor

Clinical Psychologist

In 06811 - Nearby to 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.

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? Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com to learn how! Or call 877-606-6161. DR. FLEMING'S NEW RELATIONSHIP/COUPLES INTENSIVES. www.kevinflemingphd.com/marriage-couples-retreats.php
