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.

My goal is to help couples manage through trying periods and to develop effective ways to improve communication and interactions. I will work closely with your partner and you to help reonnect you to the relationship that you were always wishing for.

Cathy Betti, AMFT, MSMFT
Couples Counselor

Cathy Betti, AMFT, MSMFT

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

In 60015 - Nearby to Gages 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.

Ralph Whetstine, Psy.D., ACHT

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 60173 - Nearby to Gages Lake.

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.

Couples Counselor

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

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 53142 - Nearby to Gages 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.

Debra K. Hirschberg, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 60118 - Nearby to Gages 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.

Deborah Metroka, MA, LCPC
Couples Counselor

Deborah Metroka, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

In 60156 - Nearby to Gages 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!

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?
