Marc Shulman, Psy.D.

Clinical Psychologist

In 11530 - Nearby to Riverside.

I provide couples counseling that emphasizes that there are two separate individuals contributing to one couples dynamic. Therefore I strive to understand how each member of the couple functions and how this impacts the relationship. The goal is to determine if the couple can learn how to complement one another in a manner that will maximize relationship satisfaction.

Couples counseling involves learning to listen, agreeing to disagree and having mutual respect for self and others. This reaches beyond marriage- it can be any type of relationship. I am currently studying the Gottmann Method for Couples Counseling and know how to facilitate communication skills to bring a clear understanding and better engagement strategies for couples.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

It can be so easy to fall into patterns and, over time, find that you keep having the same issues or arguments within your relationship or marriage. That's where couples counseling can help. Talking out issues and problems in a judgement-free space with a neutral third party invested in your progress and growth can help you and your relationship move forward. My goal as couples therapist is to listen to you and give you the tools and techniques to help get your relationship back on track. When you're ready to stop having the same conversations and to move forward in your relationship or marriage, let's talk.

Laura OKeefe, LCSW
Couples Counselor

Laura OKeefe, LCSW

Psychotherapist / Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 10536 - Nearby to Riverside.

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.

The paramount goal in my couples therapy is to help clients facilitate improved communication. I believe it is absolutely necessary to learn the ability to set appropriate boundaries with one's partner. My clients attain better communication, better boundary setting and an improved abilty to process feelings between partners, all making for a more satisfying relationship.

Ilise Gold, LPC
Couples Counselor

Ilise Gold, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 06880 - Nearby to Riverside.

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.

Amy Rosenberg, PsyD
Couples Counselor

Amy Rosenberg, PsyD

Licensed Psychologist

In 11791 - Nearby to Riverside.

Many times, it is difficult to find a balance within the marital unit. Often times, each individual is unable to recognize or understand the other, and as such, conflict often occurs. Couples therapy allows a safe environment for both members to feel respected and heard. Emphasis is placed on helping to identify needs and expectations of one another and work toward achieving goals of the individual and the couple in session.

Patricia Pitta, Ph.D., A.B.P.P.
Couples Counselor

Patricia Pitta, Ph.D., A.B.P.P.

Clinical and Board Certified Family Psychologist

In 11030 - Nearby to Riverside.

Marriage or couple relationships are a tug of war for power and control. When the leverage of the couple becomes one sided: disappointment, fears, worries and anger become predominant emotions. At this point, you may think about leaving because you can't understand your conflicted feelings. Remember, " You can't run away from yourself". It is essential to know your contribution to the dysfunction in the relationship. When you can face your feelings and behaviors patterns and take responsibility for your actions leaving the "blame" behind, the couple begins the repair process enabling respectful listening and communicating leading to healing feelings and setting the stage for intimacy.

Relationships can mean bliss, torture, and everything in between. We are built to depend on each other, and especially on our significant others to get some of our most important needs met. I can help you to communicate in a way that you can be heard, so that you may create a mutually fulfilling relationship. Assertiveness, stress management, positive conflict resolution are all part of this work, as well as resolving any old blockages from your respective pasts that might interfere with building a healthy and loving relationship. I work with partners with any sexual identity or orientation.

Couples Counselor

Stephanie Burchell, PhD, LMFT, CFLE

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 06880 - Nearby to Riverside.

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 Counselor

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

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

In 06830 - Nearby to Riverside.

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.
