Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

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.

Couples Counselor

Jens Hussey, LCPC, CADC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor & Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor

Within driving distance of Des Plaines

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

Katie Bogacki, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Des Plaines

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.
