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.

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 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.

I offer counseling for all couples interested in improving their relationships. I have experience in helping a diverse range of couples from a variety of racial, ethnic, and spiritual backgrounds. My belief is that love comes in a wide variety of forms. Couples can be either married or dating, gay or straight. I recognize that most couples seeking therapy are usually facing some issue they have been unable to resolve alone. The decision to enter couples counseling can often be a difficult one, so I will be as sensitive and supportive as possible.

I utilize and implement aspects of the Gottman approach to helping couples heal. I assist each person in the couple in helping them recognize how they communicate with and impact the other, and how some communication patterns are ineffective.

Dr. Tracey Clifford Licensed Psychotherapist

In 60510 - Nearby to Oakbrook Terrace.

Couples often find themselves in the abyss of defense mechanisms they use with each other to punish one another when they’re angry and upset. These defense mechanisms don’t work in fact the more they reactive they are the more the connection deteriorates in the relationship. I Help people discover what their defense mechanism sorrow and create new, healthy, loving and nurturing habits to reconnect. I am an eclectic therapist who uses multiple modes/ models or approaches of therapy to help people achieve the desired goals-depending on who they are and what they respond to Best.

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?

Couples Counselor

Ralph Whetstine, Psy.D., ACHT

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 60007 - Nearby to Oakbrook Terrace.

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 Social Worker

In 60091 - Nearby to Oakbrook Terrace.

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.

Life can get in the way of love. For couples looking to reignite their spark, therapy can be a valuable way of connecting to what is important in a relationship. Whether you are dating, engaged, or married, taking the time to solidify your bond can have a huge impact on your overall happiness. I emphasize developing healthy communication skills to make sure everyone is able to express their needs and have them met, as well as focusing on identifying what matters most in the relationship. How would your relationship change if you were able to connect with your partner on a deeper level?
