Couples Counselor

Cathy Chec, AMFT, MSMFT

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Wauconda

As a Marriage and Family Therapist, when a couple comes to see me, I treat the relationship versus the individuals. Relationships themselves are my focus, and with that in mind, in a non-blaming, non-siding way, together we collaboratively figure out what relationship cycles have been created between you as the couple, how you can get out of those cycles, and how to maintain the relationship you want whether you are newly dating, engaged, newlyweds, or married for 50 years.

In the stress of daily life and struggles, couples often forget why they love each other. They lose perspective and only feel anger and hopelessness. This is not what God wants for your relationship. Couples therapy involves looking at the communication patterns and baggage that keeps you stuck but will also help you remember and regain the love and understanding for the one you love.

Couples Counselor

Felicia Glick, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Wauconda

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.

Couples Counselor

Denise Ambre, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker and Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of Wauconda

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. My goal is to provide couples with tools to solve ongoing problems as well as to help them find greater levels of intimacy and understanding. I initially help couples discuss their issues in a...(view profile to read more)

Couples Counselor

Allison Schechter, PsyD

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Wauconda

Couples may seek the help of a therapist for various reasons (such as difficulty in communication or recovery after an infidelity). Exploring and improving issues such as communication, commitment level, and understanding the needs and wants of their partner are common issues that are targeted in couples counseling. Whether it be to better improve your relationship or working to explore whether or not the relationship can be saved, it can be helpful to have an objective therapist present to help a couple better understand each person's perspective, identify and improve communication, and help to foster a better sense of understanding and perspective of each individual.

Couples Counselor

Thomas Heroldt, MA, LCPC, CADC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Wauconda

Accepting and celebrating the differences that make up a couple can bring joy to any relationship. Validating emotions and not having to understand them reduces the amount of fighting that will take place. Watching for areas of stonewalling, contempt, defensiveness and criticism will allow communication to continue and not shut someone down or up. Learning how to repair a relationship on a daily bases will keep it on the road for many years.

Couples Counselor

Pamela Meyerson, LCSW

Pam Meyerson

Within driving distance of Wauconda

This is my primary area of expertise. I work with couples dealing with issues of stress (including financial stress), infidelity or cheating, addictions, difficult children and challenging family dynamics. In fact, couples counseling often covers an entire gamut of therapeutic issues. I specialize in this area and have been routinely quoted in the periodical "Make It Better."

Couples Counselor

Dan Blair, LMFT, LCPC, NCPC

Marriage Counselor

Within driving distance of Wauconda

Marriage counseling can be scary, not knowing what to expect. I take the time to make sure that each person feels understood. Often this is what people want the most in order to feel resolve issues and feel closer. Secondly, people want to stay calm but do not always know how. Thirdly, most prefer creative proposals to solve problems versus debates. Having a communication coach, and an understanding of how your past affects the present can make the difference. We also provide premarital assessments and counseling.

Couples Counselor

Deb Norton, MS LCPC NCC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Wauconda

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.
