When you come to couples therapy you can expect to have a compassionate yet structured space to work on whatever goals you have for your relationship. Every couple has their unique strengths and difficulties, and through using Emotionally-Focused therapy we can work to identify unmet needs within the relationship, and improve communication and emotional intimacy.

Ralph Whetstine, Psy.D., ACHT

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

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 Professional Counselor & Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor

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.

Susan Steffey, Ms.ed, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Highland Park

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.

Couples experience and bring into their relationships past histories of emotional and cognitive issues that impact on their current relationship. When events occur that cause distress couple can experience intense and deep pain over the new developments or opening of old wounds. Treatment therefore needs to encompass their capacities to handle and overcome these experiences that interfere with their intimacy and closeness.

Couples Counselor

Katie Bogacki, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Highland Park

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.

Is your relationship ready for a tune up? Being married and raising 4 children, I know it's hard to find time for "us" during the parent rearing years, let alone if the relationship is struggling. Change can happen even if it's just by one person! I promise! Give me a jingle to see if couples counseling is right for you. Sometimes the things we can easily see are not the root cause of relationship stress. I can help you identify where the stress is coming from, and live a more fulfilling life!

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

Mary Lynn Meyers, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Highland Park

I have worked with couples in a variety of stages of stress and conflict in their relationships - from those who have just begun to experience problems to those who are in intense conflict. Research shows that the earlier in a relationship or marriage that a couple engages in trying to explore and examine the trouble causing emotional and behavioral patterns of the relationship , the more successful and effective the therapy can be. And, although it is preferential to work with both members of a couple in therapy, one individual can work on the relationship on their own and still see enormous benefits from the therapy.
