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.

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

Cathy Chec, AMFT, MSMFT

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Des Plaines

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, when a couple comes to see me, I treat the relationship versus the individuals. Relationships themselves are my focus, and with that in mind, in a non-blaming, non-siding way, together we collaboratively figure out what relationship cycles have been created between you as the couple, how you can get out of those cycles, and how to maintain the relationship you want whether you are newly dating, engaged, newlyweds, or married for 50 years.

The greatest issue with couples therapy is that most couples wait too long to seek it out. So instead of reconnecting a cart and horse that were in the same location, time now has them in different counties - sometimes different states! The challenge with couples right out of the gate is identifying the depth of the disconnect. Next is boundary setting as I'm a firm believer, no couple can gain a thing from fighting with each other in my office! My job is not to referee. My job is to help them identify what's broken in their relationship and then teach them how to fix it. Quite simply, this journey is about trust, communication and the willingness to make compromise. I'm the tour guide.

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 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.
