I enjoy working with couples whether whether married or not. I enjoy the dynamic of interpersonal relationship and work well with couples in improving communication and conflict resolution. Another value for me when working with couples is to help them enjoy each other and their relationship more including having fun, connectedness, and learning to celebrate the way each is wired differently.

Marriage is a rather fragile bond; love is never enough to spare it from major let-downs. Sooner or later, stress and frictions slowly and insidiously intrude into the relationship bliss, leading to let downs and conflicts. Conflicts are often the unsuccessful attempts to take back the sense of control and connection that have been lost in the midst. Unfortunately, these unsuccessful attempts only give rise to anger, bitterness, and unhappiness; sometimes to separation or divorce. The riddle is in the interaction pattern. And the vicious cycle repeats. Through counseling, couples can alter their interaction patterns, learn connection skills, and feel closer with each other again.

Why jeopardize your relationship working with a clinician who doesn't specialize in couples work? The foundation of our practice is helping couples improve their relationship successfully, and we have been doing it for over 15 years. Our couples have stated improvements in emotional closeness, communication, sexual and non-sexual intimacy, and overall enjoyment of the time they spend together. Developed by CoFounders, Dr. Ray and Jean Kadkhodaian, the Couples Synergy model is not offered anywhere except at The Lighthouse Emotional Wellness Center, located in Schaumburg, Illinois.

There are many different types of couples with whom I work - Traditional, Re-Married After Being Widowed, Step-Families, Gay, Lesbian, Transgender.

Couples Counselor

Sharon Depowski, LCSW, CADC

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Alcohol/Drug Counselor

In 60164 - Nearby to Maywood.

I recognize that each couple is unique, in their approach to life and to each other. I would focus on their strengths, especially as work on their problematic areas began. I encourage open communication but discourage name calling; I also encourage the use of "I feel" statements. I would be interested in their individual life histories in that the baggage we bring to relationships cannot be removed, but responses to behavior can be altered. And sometimes awareness of why an individual acts and/or feels a certain way can be quite helpful.

Kristen Jacobsen, MA, LCPC

Kristen Jacobsen, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) / Psychotherapist

In 60614 - Nearby to Maywood.

Relationships are built on pillars of trust and aligning values. I utilize John Gottman's research on marital stability in my practice. I also focus on the use of Gary Chapman's five love languages as a way to explore whether each person is getting his/her needs met most effectively in the relationship. I typically work with younger couples who have not yet entered into the sacrament of marriage or are recently married.

Many kinds of couples find their way to counseling with me. I see married couples, couples with step and blended families, new and old couples, co-habiting couples, bisexual and gay couples, swinging couples, and premarital couples. I enjoy working with the interplay between partners. Most clients come in to better their communications and lessen specific conflict s around decisions and patterns of behavior. Many come in to struggle about separation, divorce and infidelity. Couples who see me usually understand their personal issues more fully and know more about their partner then before counseling. They tend to feel more connected, warm and more respectful of one another.

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

In 60462 - Nearby to Maywood.

I approach couples counseling primarily as a facilitator of healthy and mutually respectful communication. This has often broken down at home so creating a safe place for both people to speak and listen to each other is a lost experience I work on recovering. In turn, there may then be a sense of relief and hope that both people are able to calm down and problem solve their situation.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 60091 - Nearby to Maywood.

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.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 60007 - Nearby to Maywood.

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 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 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.
