Dan Blair, LMFT, LCPC, NCPC

Marriage Counselor

In 60012 - Nearby to Fox River Grove.

Marriage counseling can be scary, not knowing what to expect. I take the time to make sure that each person feels understood. Often this is what people want the most in order to feel resolve issues and feel closer. Secondly, people want to stay calm but do not always know how. Thirdly, most prefer creative proposals to solve problems versus debates. Having a communication coach, and an understanding of how your past affects the present can make the difference. We also provide premarital assessments and counseling.

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings? Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com to learn how! Or call 877-606-6161. DR. FLEMING'S NEW RELATIONSHIP/COUPLES INTENSIVES. www.kevinflemingphd.com/marriage-couples-retreats.php

Couples Counselor

Thomas Heroldt, MA, LCPC, CADC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

In 60175 - Nearby to Fox River Grove.

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.

Couples often find themselves in the abyss of defense mechanisms they use with each other to punish one another when they’re angry and upset. These defense mechanisms don’t work in fact the more they reactive they are the more the connection deteriorates in the relationship. I Help people discover what their defense mechanism sorrow and create new, healthy, loving and nurturing habits to reconnect. I am an eclectic therapist who uses multiple modes/ models or approaches of therapy to help people achieve the desired goals-depending on who they are and what they respond to Best.

Cherry Weber, Ph.D.
Couples Counselor

Cherry Weber, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 60174 - Nearby to Fox River Grove.

My approach to couples therapy is to help the individuals in the couple identify what they want in the relationship, how to express this to their partner is a positive noncritical or not threatening manner, and then help them develop the tools to use to negotiate until they are both happy. Of course the relationship needs to be assessed for abusive power and control issues. Couples therapy cannot occur if domestic abuse or domestic violence is part of the relationship. If abuse is part of the relationship then the individuals need to work on their issues before couples therapy can be successful.

Felicia Glick, LCSW
Couples Counselor

Felicia Glick, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 60030 - Nearby to Fox River Grove.

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.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 60134 - Nearby to Fox River Grove.

Being in a couple is a dream-come-true for most individuals. Yet, when the romance, over time (generally 6 months to 2 years), melds into the routine, lovers feel lost, lonely, and long for the past. What does this pattern mean on the developmental, life-long path of a couple? Feeling attracted is Step 1. Making a commitment to each other is Step 2. Disillusionment is Step 3 before you (Step 4) shake up your beliefs about a "happy marriage." How could you and your partner rejuvenate and inspire your commitment? I can help you understand the Steps with powerful ideas for you to start applying today. If you spouse isn't ready, you can lead the way!

Wayne Riendeau, LCPC
Couples Counselor

Wayne Riendeau, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

In 60031 - Nearby to Fox River Grove.

Of all the counseling I have done, couple counseling is the most satisfying. My goal in working with couples, married, dating or engaged, is always with the goal of building healthy, live-giving ways of communicating, and in helping to create a wonder a curiosity of the other person in order to appreciate and come to love them more. As a Christian, I counsel couples who want Christian-based counseling on dating or marriage, and also work with those who simply want to improve their relationship with a partner or loved one, though not necessarily with a spiritual element. I am also a Wedding Officiate, and have officiated at several weddings over the last few years.

Ralph Whetstine, Psy.D., ACHT

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 60173 - Nearby to Fox River Grove.

What are the barriers to your individual and shared experience of life? What are the factors that can best aid you in achieving your desire for a harmonious union in your relationship. Frequently communication is a starting point that reflects individual challenges in effectively addressing emotional needs, forms of co-dependency, and long-standing ineffective habits. Working from treatment methods informed by the treatment theories of John Gottman, I seek to help clients learn to speak and interact in ways that reflect their vision for the relationship and not the unexamined habits of the past.

In 60174 - Nearby to Fox River Grove.

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

Cathy Betti, LMFT, MSMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 60015 - Nearby to Fox River Grove.

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.

Pete Marcelo, LCSW, PhD
Couples Counselor

Pete Marcelo, LCSW, PhD

Clinical & School Psychologist / Clinical & School Social Worker

In 60142 - Nearby to Fox River Grove.

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.

Susan Steffey, Ms.ed, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

In 60181 - Nearby to Fox River Grove.

Couples therapy is akin to marriage counseling for me. Again I try to address any underlying issues and like to see each partner seperately at least once. Often times one person is in crisis and the couples relationsip is seriously affected. Sometimes it's a matter of helping one person to learn how to support the other and to help foster healthier communication.

Deb Norton, MS LCPC NCC
Couples Counselor

Deb Norton, MS LCPC NCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

In 60048 - Nearby to Fox River Grove.

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.
