Licensed Clinical Social Worker

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.

Do you feel disconnected from your partner? Are you tired of all the arguing?

Whatever your concerns are, I have experience working with couples to improve relationship dynamics in a nonjudgmental and encouraging therapeutic environment. My goal is to help couples manage through trying periods and to develop effective ways to improve communication and interactions. I will work closely with your partner and you to help reonnect you to the relationship that you were always wishing for.

Flavio Vega, PsyD, PhD, HSPP

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 46321 - Nearby to Summit.

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.

Charles Hughes, MA, LCPC, DCC
Couples Counselor

Charles Hughes, MA, LCPC, DCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, Tele-Counselor

In 60301 - Nearby to Summit.

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.

Licensed Professional Counselor

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. I assist couples in finding effective communication strategies, healthy interaction and intimacy patterns, while building trust and respect for one another.

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

In 60004 - Nearby to Summit.

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.

Couples Counselor

Samantha Elliott, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

In 60613 - Nearby to Summit.

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.
