Couples Counselor

Pete Marcelo, LCSW, PhD

Clinical & School Psychologist / Clinical & School Social Worker

In 60142 - Nearby to Cortland.

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.

Angela Rene Brown, LCSW
Couples Counselor

Angela Rene Brown, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 60560 - Nearby to Cortland.

I offer Gottman Method Couples Therapy. Marriages are created from two distinct life experiences, expectations, communication patterns and love languages. Helping couples learn skills and identify issues that create conflict and emotional pain allow couples to have deeper connection and understanding and a more joy-filled marriage. All marital relationships go through different seasons. It can be helpful to have an outside professional assist a couple in navigating through a fall or winter season. The marriage bond can be fortified and strengthened to withstand the challenges and transitions of life.

Thomas Heroldt, MA, LCPC, CADC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

In 60175 - Nearby to Cortland.

Accepting and celebrating the differences that make up a couple can bring joy to any relationship. Validating emotions and not having to understand them reduces the amount of fighting that will take place. Watching for areas of stonewalling, contempt, defensiveness and criticism will allow communication to continue and not shut someone down or up. Learning how to repair a relationship on a daily bases will keep it on the road for many years.

Debra K. Hirschberg, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

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.
