Couples Counselor

Samantha Elliott, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

1409 W Irving Park Rd, Chicago, Illinois

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.

Couples Counselor

Jens Hussey, LCPC, CADC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor & Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor

25 East Washington St. , Suite 1719, Chicago, Illinois

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.

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Chicago, Illinois

There are countless models of healthy romantic relationships, from monogamous to polyamorous, and unique variations between partners. The scripts for dating and longterm relationships of our parents’ generations may not be applicable to your relationship, and there is no formal education in how to be a good partner or how to identify unhealthy relationships. But there is psychological research that shows that effective communication, emotional openness, intimacy, and other factors contribute to healthy relationships. Creating these conditions are skills that can be learned. I practice brief humanistic and emotion-focused therapy (EFT) to help my LGBTQ and hetero clients learn these skills.

Couples Counselor

Kristen Jacobsen, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor / Therapist

3166 N. Lincoln Ave, Suite 207, Chicago, Illinois

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.

Couples Counselor

Katie Bogacki, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

4801 W. Peterson Ave., Ste. 308 , Chicago , Illinois

Communication is the key to any strong relationship. Unfortunately, our way of communicating to our partners is not always in the same language that the partner understands. When this happens, there is a tendency to withdraw and harbor resentment rather than bring the issues to light in confrontation. I assist couples in bringing to the forefront those miscommunications in a safe space to reduce the level of anxiety over a confrontation and rather have a conversation where each partner feels heard, validated, and valued.

Couples Counselor

Taylor Newendorp, M.A., LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

It is very common for couples to experience an increase in the amount and intensity of conflict within their relationship during times of major life changes, and thus I specialize in counseling couples making the transition to parenthood and provide both pre-marital and pre-commitment counseling as well. I can help you learn how to better deal with the stress that might be negatively impacting your relationship and can teach you constructive communication skills to reduce conflict and re-establish those old feelings of connection, closeness, and and comfort.

Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Chicago, Illinois

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?
