Ralph Whetstine, Psy.D., ACHT
Couples Counselor

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.

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.

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.

Thomas Heroldt, MA, LCPC, CADC
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.

Cathy Betti, AMFT, MSMFT
Couples Counselor

Cathy Betti, AMFT, MSMFT

Licensed Associate 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.

Dan Blair, LMFT, LCPC, NCPC
Couples Counselor

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.

Karen Bridwell, LCPC

Allison Schechter, PsyD

Clinical Psychologist

In 60045 - Nearby to Fox River Grove.

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.

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.

Collaboratively, we will develop a plan to encourage and give you hope that you can still make your relationship all that it can be!

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.
