Couples Counselor

Mary Lynn Meyers, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Zion

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.

This is my primary area of expertise.

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

Paula Mathiasen, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Zion

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

Cathy Chec, AMFT, MSMFT

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Zion

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.

Couples Counselor

Allison Schechter, PsyD

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Zion

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

Felicia Glick, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Zion

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.

Relationships are wonderful and they can also be challenging.

I meet couples where they are at in the relationship both individually & as a couple & I offer a safe & comfortable environment to foster openness and honesty in dialog about the relationship.

Couples Counselor

Renee Murphy-Hughes, M.A., FPT, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Zion

Couples counseling may not necessarily be marriage counseling. It also may be premarital, two friends or roommates that need to speak to someone who can be objective and neutral. This type of counseling may also include a parent and child (sometimes an adult child needing to resolve some issues of childhood or even between siblings). So the dyads may each have their own dynamics. As a Counselor I must be able to put myself into the situation at hand. There's no cookie-cutter approach here. I generally use a mindfulness based approach, dealing with current issues as well as Cognitive Therapy. I teach effective communication skills & conflict resolution skills...& help you connect.

Couples Counselor

Kristin Patten, MA, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Zion

Is your relationship ready for a tune up? Being married and raising 4 children, I know it's hard to find time for "us" during the parent rearing years, let alone if the relationship is struggling. Change can happen even if it's just by one person! I promise! Give me a jingle to see if couples counseling is right for you. Sometimes the things we can easily see are not the root cause of relationship stress. I can help you identify where the stress is coming from, and live a more fulfilling life!
