Couples Counselor

Sharon Depowski, LCSW, CADC

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Alcohol/Drug Counselor

Within driving distance of Deer Park

I recognize that each couple is unique, in their approach to life and to each other. I would focus on their strengths, especially as work on their problematic areas began. I encourage open communication but discourage name calling; I also encourage the use of "I feel" statements. I would be interested in their individual life histories in that the baggage we bring to relationships cannot be removed, but responses to behavior can be altered. And sometimes awareness of why an individual acts and/or feels a certain way can be quite helpful.

Is your relationship ready for a tune up? Being married and raising 4 children, I know it's hard to find time for "us" during the parent rearing years, let alone if the relationship is struggling. Change can happen even if it's just by one person! I promise! Give me a jingle to see if couples counseling is right for you. Sometimes the things we can easily see are not the root cause of relationship stress. I can help you identify where the stress is coming from, and live a more fulfilling life!

Couples Counselor

Charles Hughes, MA, LCPC, DCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Tele-Counselor

Within driving distance of Deer Park

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.

In helping your coupleship become more satisfying, I first want to hear your story--how you met, your journey to date, both the highs and the lows. Then together we will identify your strengths, issues that have become problematic, what skills you have already, those to add or enhance for the future, and strategies to work through any special difficulties or remaining woundedness. Collaboratively, we will develop a plan to encourage and give you hope that you can still make your relationship all that it can be!

Couples Counselor

Felicia Glick, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Deer Park

Couples can sometimes fall into a cycle of " Negative Sentiment Override" which they don't know how to change. Many couples will wait an average of 6 years from the time they recognize problems in their relationship before seeking help. In using the Gottman Method with my clients I see them develop and use the skills necessary to pull themselves out even long standing negative feelings towards each other. I use practical questionnaires and exercises to facilitate change. The relationship skills are applicable to couples that are engaged, contemplating marriage or couples that have been together for a lifetime but want to deepen their relationship.

Infidelity. Communication. Past emotional injury. Criticism and Defensiveness. These issues are by far the most common issues in couples across demographics and locations. Yet, no two couples are the same. Each relationship interacts, relates and communicates in different ways; and each couple will heal differently. In addition, couples from the LGBTQIA, poly/nonmonogamy & kink community often face additional societal or family-related challenges that often impact the relationship. By reconnecting you emotionally, we'll work as a team to improve your communication, heal past injuries, revitalize intimacy, rebuild trust and create new pathways of love & acceptance.

Couples Counselor

Daniel Kill, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Deer Park

For over 35 years I have been providing couples counseling. Foremost this counseling is based on the current strengths that the relatonship brings to therapy.A relational assessment assists in identifying areas of improvement for the relationship. As successful communication is an essential element in all successful relationships, couples communication is a critical element of assessment and intervention. Couple counseling teaches couples to be more accepting of each other while at the same time working to change some of their assumptions and automatic behaviors. Homework assignments are an essential element of counseling and John Gottman's research is integrated into therapy.

Katie Bogacki, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

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.

I offer counseling for all couples interested in improving their relationships. I have experience in helping a diverse range of couples from a variety of racial, ethnic, and spiritual backgrounds. My belief is that love comes in a wide variety of forms. Couples can be either married or dating, gay or straight.

The decision to enter couples counseling can often be a difficult one, so I will be as sensitive and supportive as possible.
