Licensed Clinical Social Worker

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

Pete Marcelo, LCSW, PhD

Clinical & School Psychologist / Clinical & School Social Worker

In 60142 - Nearby to Woodstock.

I use a systems approach to couples and family therapy and often explore the communication patterns, roles, and rules of the couple or family. I help couples examine the interactions and/or dynamics of the relationship that are working and the patterns and/or interactions that are not. As opposed to continuing to blame his/her partner, I ask individuals to assess his/her part of the difficulties in the relationship and help them identify areas that he/she can work on to improve their relationship. Ultimately, the only thing one has control over is his/her own behavior or his/her part of the problem in the relationship.

If you are concerned about your relationship, it is normal. Most people wonder how healthy their relationship is and if it could be better. Society teaches us to focus on the fun of falling in love but not the tools to make relationships work well in the long-term. Couples counseling is most effective if the counselor is specially trained in a theoretical model or approach specific to relationships. Effective models are PET-C or Gottman. Ideally, the couple will attend counseling together. If not, simply make an appointment individually. The most important step is to make an appointment, individually or as a couple, or there is lessened potential for increased relationship satisfaction.

Dan Blair, LMFT, LCPC, NCPC
Couples Counselor

Dan Blair, LMFT, LCPC, NCPC

Marriage Counselor

In 60012 - Nearby to Woodstock.

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.
