Couples Counselor

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

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

Within driving distance of 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.

Couples Counselor

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

Clinical and Board Certified Family Psychologist

Within driving distance of 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.

Couples Counselor

Laura OKeefe, LCSW

Psychotherapist / Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of 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.

Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within driving distance of Riverside

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 Riverside

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.

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Riverside

Couples, married or not, seek therapy for many reasons; including hoping to resolve differences, hoping to improve communication, and/or hoping to improve their intimate relationship. My work with couples, enhanced by my training in sex therapy, addresses these issues so as to help the individuals within the relationship more effectively express themselves and more effectively understand their partner, and so as to promote the overall strength and joy in the relationship itself.

Couples Counselor

Stephanie Burchell, PhD, LMFT, CFLE

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of 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

Marc Shulman, Psy.D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of 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 Counselor

Theresa Evans Knight, MA, LMFT, MBA

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Riverside

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

We yearn for connection and love in our relationships, and when we do not have this with our partner, it can be incredibly painful. I work with couples to identify the areas of disconnection and provide the tools necessary to rebuild a relationship. By improving communication, trust, and commitment within a safe environment, I can help both partners feel heard in order to reestablish that connection, I am available for a free 15 minute phone consultation to determine whether anger management with me is right for you - to schedule, send an email to info@nassauwellness.com or call/text (516) 387-5143
