Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor & Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor

Couples work is challenging but I enjoy it. I like to help people improve how they relate to each other; communicate better; work through conflicts; and connect on a deeper level. I'm also very non-judgmental and help couples work through complicated issues they sometimes have a hard time finding a therapist for such as exploring sexual boundaries or non-traditional relationship issues. Unfortunately - sometimes it's also about ending a relationship and using the therapist to help navigate a "friendly divorce" rather than an acrimonious one.

I approach couples counseling primarily as a facilitator of healthy and mutually respectful communication. This has often broken down at home so creating a safe place for both people to speak and listen to each other is a lost experience I work on recovering. In turn, there may then be a sense of relief and hope that both people are able to calm down and problem solve their situation.

Couples Counselor

Alicia Stalker-Gallichio, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 60463 - Nearby to Blue Island.

When discontentment in your relationship arises, problems are easier to repair if you seek counseling sooner rather than later. Many people wait until the "last straw" before seeking counseling as a solution. In my many years of experience, I often find that one member of the couple has already "checked out" emotionally because there have been so many years of discontentment. Please don't allow your relationship to get to that point! A happy couples relationship can add so much to your life and you deserve this! I am of the belief that it takes two in a relationship and usually there is not just one person at fault. I help you take responsibility with both the causes and the solutions

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

In 60613 - Nearby to Blue Island.

When working with couples, I work with each member to understand the perspective of their partner. I do not see one person as right and another as wrong, but instead understand that both people see the relationship and the world differently. In order for two people to be in complete harmony and intimacy, they need to be able to see and understand inner workings of the other. In couples counseling, I will facilitate conversations to help both partners get to this point of understanding and compassion.

Do you believe that counseling is just for unhappy couples? Counseling gives each partner involved: basic tools and strategies to enrich their communication: show respect for their partner, as well as themselves; and grow in healthy ways. It can be a valuable addition to any relationship. Counseling is a priceless opportunity for couples who want to build a healthy and long-lasting relationship. With the growing number of unsatisfied couples in relationship, counseling or coaching from a professional can be the crucial step for improving your relationship, helping each of you work on key concerns that are causing conflict, and working towards progress with each session.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 60712 - Nearby to Blue Island.

Marriage is a rather fragile bond; love is never enough to spare it from major let-downs. Sooner or later, stress and frictions slowly and insidiously intrude into the relationship bliss, leading to let downs and conflicts. Conflicts are often the unsuccessful attempts to take back the sense of control and connection that have been lost in the midst. Unfortunately, these unsuccessful attempts only give rise to anger, bitterness, and unhappiness; sometimes to separation or divorce. The riddle is in the interaction pattern. And the vicious cycle repeats. Through counseling, couples can alter their interaction patterns, learn connection skills, and feel closer with each other again.

Kristen Jacobsen, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) / Psychotherapist

In 60614 - Nearby to Blue Island.

Relationships are built on pillars of trust and aligning values. I utilize John Gottman's research on marital stability in my practice. I also focus on the use of Gary Chapman's five love languages as a way to explore whether each person is getting his/her needs met most effectively in the relationship. I typically work with younger couples who have not yet entered into the sacrament of marriage or are recently married.

My style allows for both individuals in a relationship to see what they bring to the table, both their strengths and areas of struggle in order to get the most of out your most intimate relationship.

Susan Steffey, Ms.ed, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

In 60181 - Nearby to Blue Island.

Couples therapy is akin to marriage counseling for me. Again I try to address any underlying issues and like to see each partner seperately at least once. Often times one person is in crisis and the couples relationsip is seriously affected. Sometimes it's a matter of helping one person to learn how to support the other and to help foster healthier communication.
