Couples Counselor

Pete Marcelo, LCSW, PhD

Clinical & School Psychologist / Clinical & School Social Worker

Within driving distance of Carol Stream

I use a systems approach to couples and family therapy and often explore the communication patterns, roles, and rules of the couple or family. I help couples examine the interactions and/or dynamics of the relationship that are working and the patterns and/or interactions that are not. As opposed to continuing to blame his/her partner, I ask individuals to assess his/her part of the difficulties in the relationship and help them identify areas that he/she can work on to improve their relationship. Ultimately, the only thing one has control over is his/her own behavior or his/her part of the problem in the relationship.

Couples counseling in one of my areas of expertise. Many clinicians refer couples to me because of my years of success in working with this population. I believe each couple brings in their own unique set of circumstances, thus I do not use one standard "formula" in my approach. You will find your time in therapy with me as an experience of feeling respected, being deeply understood, with the ultimate result of positive and constructive change in your relationship. Are you ready to find fulfillment and joy in your partnership? If so, then please contact me at your convenience.

Couples Counselor

Charles Hughes, MA, LCPC, DCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Tele-Counselor

Within driving distance of Carol Stream

Contrary to popular belief, we are not born knowing how to create a good relationship. Unfortunately, we often don’t learn it in our families either. The good news is that there is plenty of research on what makes relationships work. You can learn the secrets of successful couples; what they do; what they don’t do. Being a happy couple is not about being a saint. It’s about reacting more effectively when your partner is being, let’s be honest, a jerk (male or female variety). Equipped with new knowledge and skills, you might be surprised how easy it is to create the kind of love and respect in your relationship that you thought was reserved for the lucky few.

Couples Counselor

Debra K. Hirschberg, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Carol Stream

In the stress of daily life and struggles, couples often forget why they love each other. They lose perspective and only feel anger and hopelessness. This is not what God wants for your relationship. Couples therapy involves looking at the communication patterns and baggage that keeps you stuck but will also help you remember and regain the love and understanding for the one you love.

Couples Counselor

Karen Bridwell, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Carol Stream

Relationships take effort and at times are in need of special attention. Karen provides a safe environment to work on developing more effective communication skills, conflict resolution, and emotional understanding and acceptance of one another. There are times when each partner’s past impacts the dynamic of the relationship, and Karen addresses this as well.

Couples Counselor

Kuhn Counseling Center, LPC, LCPC, PhD

Therapists of Kuhn Counseling Center, P.C.

Within driving distance of Carol Stream

Are you having difficulties communicating effectively with your partner? Is it causing problems within your relationship? Often times we repeat patterns we've learned throughout our lives on communicating with others, both negatively and positively. Through counseling we can explore those patterns and look into ways to break those patterns and establish a positive growth in the relationship.

Couples Counselor

Althea Olson, LCSW

Psychotherapist, Author, Keynote Speaker

Within driving distance of Carol Stream

Most therapists are scared of providing couples counseling because it is difficult remaining unbiased towards two people who are in the throes of high conflict. However, I love it and it is my favorite type of counseling to provide. In my experience I have found most couples get caught up in the details of life and begin fighting to be right instead of fighting for each other. Instead of focusing on what they need to hear they become consumed over how their partner has wronged them. I focus on restoring reconciling the relationship to a place that is mutually beneficial for each partner using evidence based interventions from CBT, The Gottman Method, Bowen Family Systems, and ACT.

Couples Counselor

Kari Hunter, LMFT, LCPC

Psychotherapist, Relationship Specialist, Discernment Counselor

Within driving distance of Carol Stream

Suspecting an affair? Have you just learned that your spouse wants a divorce? These are the types of crises situations that Kari Hunter specializes in. A relationship counselor for 25 years, she has worked with all types of couples to help them navigate the many difficulties that go along with love and partnership. Whether your relationship can benefit from conflict-resolution skills, communication coaching, or intimacy enrichment, don't wait until small problems become a crisis. But if you have gotten to the point of contemplating a break-up, there is a new service for that too, it is called Discernment counseling and it helps couples come to a mutual confident decision about the future.

Couples counseling can be beneficial to any couple in a committed relationship. If both partners are willing to participate, counseling can be effective regardless of sexual orientation, age, race or length of time spent together. Couples will benefit from tracking progress as it helps to promote emotional awareness, communication, and healthy changes in behavior. Couples counseling can benefit clients dealing with trust issues, financial burdens, resentment/unresolved issues, infidelity, transition phases and countless other challenges effecting the relationship.

Couples Counselor

Ralph Whetstine, Psy.D., ACHT

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Carol Stream

What are the barriers to your individual and shared experience of life? What are the factors that can best aid you in achieving your desire for a harmonious union in your relationship. Frequently communication is a starting point that reflects individual challenges in effectively addressing emotional needs, forms of co-dependency, and long-standing ineffective habits. Working from treatment methods informed by the treatment theories of John Gottman, I seek to help clients learn to speak and interact in ways that reflect their vision for the relationship and not the unexamined habits of the past.
