Charles Hughes, MA, LCPC, DCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Tele-Counselor

In 60301 - Nearby to Riverdale.

Contrary to popular belief, we are not born knowing how to create a good relationship. Unfortunately, we often don’t learn it in our families either. The good news is that there is plenty of research on what makes relationships work. You can learn the secrets of successful couples; what they do; what they don’t do. Being a happy couple is not about being a saint. It’s about reacting more effectively when your partner is being, let’s be honest, a jerk (male or female variety). Equipped with new knowledge and skills, you might be surprised how easy it is to create the kind of love and respect in your relationship that you thought was reserved for the lucky few.

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? Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com to learn how! Or call 877-606-6161. DR. FLEMING'S NEW RELATIONSHIP/COUPLES INTENSIVES. www.kevinflemingphd.com/marriage-couples-retreats.php

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.

Couples Counselor

Jens Hussey, LCPC, CADC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor & Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor

In 60602 - Nearby to Riverdale.

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.

Donald Olund, MA, LCPC, NCC
Couples Counselor

Donald Olund, MA, LCPC, NCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

In 60521 - Nearby to Riverdale.

Some of my clients call it a gift. I know it is my passion. Couples counseling is a perfect fit for me. I get energized whenever a new couple comes to see me. As a communication, relational specialist, I get to know my couples individually and as a couple by taking time to carefully listen and understand them. This allows me the opportunity to help them understand each other and where they are likely stuck in their relationship. Once I identify the negative pattern, I assist the couple in shifting the pattern into one that is mutually respectful, caring, accommodating, and enriching. As a result of my extensive couples work I am currently writing a book on respectful relationships.

Samantha Elliott, MA, LCPC
Couples Counselor

Samantha Elliott, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

In 60613 - Nearby to Riverdale.

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.

Jacob Rosser, PsyD
Couples Counselor

Jacob Rosser, PsyD

Clinical Psychologist

In 60657 - Nearby to Riverdale.

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?

Matt Frantz, MA, LCPC

In 60603 - Nearby to Riverdale.

Tired of the same fight, issue or concern in your relationship? Struggling to find new ways to communicate that feel fair and healthy? 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.

Amanda Atkins, MS, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

In 60618 - Nearby to Riverdale.

Amanda has specific training in couples counseling and it's important to note that not every therapist does. Whether it's related to sex, communication, conflict, or general relationship improvement, Amanda can help you to improve your relationship and work towards mutual goals. Amanda has worked with couples in all areas of the lifespan - married, unmarried, new, and seasoned. Couples therapy is a great tool to deepen your understanding and connection to one another.

Kristen Jacobsen, MA, LCPC
Couples Counselor

Kristen Jacobsen, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor (LCPC) / Psychotherapist

In 60614 - Nearby to Riverdale.

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.

Susan Steffey, Ms.ed, LCPC
Couples Counselor

Susan Steffey, Ms.ed, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

In 60181 - Nearby to Riverdale.

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.

Flavio Vega, PsyD, PhD, HSPP
Couples Counselor

Flavio Vega, PsyD, PhD, HSPP

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 46321 - Nearby to Riverdale.

One of my expertise is to help couples. I provide counseling to couples who are in conflict and are at the verge of a break up. I also provide pre-marital counseling. In both cases, I first like to examine one member at a time. I determine the problem and make sure that there is no mental illness in one member who might be largely contributing to the marital conflict.

Janet Wichmann, LCPC
Couples Counselor

Janet Wichmann, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

In 60462 - Nearby to Riverdale.

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.
