Couples Counselor

Sharon Depowski, LCSW, CADC

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Alcohol/Drug Counselor

Within driving distance of Niles

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.

Couples Counselor

Samantha Elliott, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Niles

When working with couples, I work with each member to understand the perspective of their partner. I do not see one person as right and another as wrong, but instead understand that both people see the relationship and the world differently. In order for two people to be in complete harmony and intimacy, they need to be able to see and understand inner workings of the other. In couples counseling, I will facilitate conversations to help both partners get to this point of understanding and compassion.

Couples Counselor

Deb Norton, MS LCPC NCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Niles

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.

Couples Counselor

Jens Hussey, LCPC, CADC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor & Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor

Within driving distance of Niles

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.

Couples Counselor

Susan Steffey, Ms.ed, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Niles

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 Counselor

Mary Lynn Meyers, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Niles

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.

Couples Counselor

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

It is very common for couples to experience an increase in the amount and intensity of conflict within their relationship during times of major life changes, and thus I specialize in counseling couples making the transition to parenthood and provide both pre-marital and pre-commitment counseling as well. I can help you learn how to better deal with the stress that might be negatively impacting your relationship and can teach you constructive communication skills to reduce conflict and re-establish those old feelings of connection, closeness, and and comfort.

Couples therapy can be useful not only to repair problem patterns, but also to build a healthy foundation for a relationship to grow upon. My style allows for both individuals in a relationship to see what they bring to the table, both their strengths and areas of struggle in order to get the most of out your most intimate relationship. I offer support and new skills to increase communication, intimacy, connection and trust.

Couples Counselor

Alicia Stalker-Gallichio, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Niles

When discontentment in your relationship arises, problems are easier to repair if you seek counseling sooner rather than later. Many people wait until the "last straw" before seeking counseling as a solution. In my many years of experience, I often find that one member of the couple has already "checked out" emotionally because there have been so many years of discontentment. Please don't allow your relationship to get to that point! A happy couples relationship can add so much to your life and you deserve this! I am of the belief that it takes two in a relationship and usually there is not just one person at fault. I help you take responsibility with both the causes and the solutions

Couples Counselor

Kristen Jacobsen, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor / Therapist

Within driving distance of Niles

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.
