Couples Counselor

Cathy Chec, AMFT, MSMFT

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Fox Lake

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.

Clinical Psychologist

Couples may seek the help of a therapist for various reasons (such as difficulty in communication or recovery after an infidelity). Exploring and improving issues such as communication, commitment level, and understanding the needs and wants of their partner are common issues that are targeted in couples counseling. Whether it be to better improve your relationship or working to explore whether or not the relationship can be saved, it can be helpful to have an objective therapist present to help a couple better understand each person's perspective, identify and improve communication, and help to foster a better sense of understanding and perspective of each individual.

Couples Counselor

Debra K. Hirschberg, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Fox Lake

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.

This is my primary area of expertise. I work with couples dealing with issues of stress (including financial stress), infidelity or cheating, addictions, difficult children and challenging family dynamics. In fact, couples counseling often covers an entire gamut of therapeutic issues. I specialize in this area and have been routinely quoted in the periodical "Make It Better."

Couples Counselor

Pete Marcelo, LCSW, PhD

Clinical & School Psychologist / Clinical & School Social Worker

Within driving distance of Fox Lake

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.

Couples Counselor

Renee Murphy-Hughes, M.A., FPT, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Fox Lake

Couples counseling may not necessarily be marriage counseling. It also may be premarital, two friends or roommates that need to speak to someone who can be objective and neutral. This type of counseling may also include a parent and child (sometimes an adult child needing to resolve some issues of childhood or even between siblings). So the dyads may each have their own dynamics. As a Counselor I must be able to put myself into the situation at hand. There's no cookie-cutter approach here. I generally use a mindfulness based approach, dealing with current issues as well as Cognitive Therapy. I teach effective communication skills & conflict resolution skills...& help you connect.

Couples Counselor

Deborah Metroka, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Fox Lake

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 Fox Lake

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.
