Brad Wasserman, LCSW-C

Psychotherapist for Adults, Adolescents, Couples & Families

Most couples share one significant challenge -- how to resolve conflict successfully. Conflict is a constant part of life -- partners may disagree about where to go for dinner or might argue about a major issue like how to manage finances. In most relationships, even small conflicts remain unresolved because couples use ineffective passive, agressive, and passive-aggressive communication styles. Every unresolved conflict creates a little more resentment and a little more tension. My focus in couples work is on helping clients to learn how to communicate with and hear one another and how to resolve conflict successfully. The result is healthier relationships and happier couples.

Nancy Montagna, Ph. D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 20910 - Nearby to Damascus.

There are two most basic fears of intimacy that we all have: one is fear of abandonment, the other is fear of being taken over, of losing my autonomy. In a relationship, people often become polarized with one clinging and the other seeming distant. With awareness of our fears and how to take care of ourselves and each other, we will bring out the best in each other. Everyone knows how to speak and listen, right? Not so. The most difficult skills to learn are to speak self-responsibly about your own experience and to truly listen and understand the other person's experience even when you don't like it. To learn these skills enables love. I can help.

Psychologist

So many relationships that start out feeling wonderful and exciting end up in frustration and disappointment. Sometimes people try to solve the problem by moving on to a new relationship only to discover that the next one has similar struggles. Couples who work with me learn how to heal, grow, and find joy in their relationship. They learn skills that give immediate relief from their most hurtful encounters and foster deep empathy, understanding and connection. In only a few coaching sessions with your partner, you will learn how to communicate in ways that: heighten friendship and passion; truly resolve conflict; and lead to individual growth and satisfaction

Susan Gorman, LCSW
Couples Counselor

Susan Gorman, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 22101 - Nearby to Damascus.

I work with couples to help them create new and stronger avenues of communication--allowing them to find, once again, the joy each partner had in the other. Whether work has stressed your relationship, or children have created the gap, we can reimagine ways to find closer connections. Perhaps you feel as if you're roommates more than a couple. Or one of you has been tempted to stray--or has strayed--but you want to do the work to come back together. Therapy helps you find the new ways you need to communicate, leading to a stronger bond between you.

Linda Ritchie, Ph.D.

Licensed Professional Counselor/Marriage & Family Therapist

In 20190 - Nearby to Damascus.

We use the latest method of communication, conflict resolution, attachment theory and trust building to help couples resolve conflicts quickly and deepen they connection. We can help you transform your troubled relationship into a happy, successful, supportive relationship. Very few people are equipped with the understandings and technical skills that are necessary for an intimate relationship to be successful. Many couples lack skills in the area of communication, anger management, commitment, conflict revolution and / or intimacy skills. The things that make a relationship work are about the little things like how you solve arguments and how much you like and respect each other.

Couples Counselor

In 20016 - Nearby to Damascus.

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?

Beth Levine, LCSW-C

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 20850 - Nearby to Damascus.

Couples usually go to therapy when they are feeling distressed. Maybe they are also feeling isolated from each other, distrustful, or like they just can't communicate with each other. I like to start by getting to know what is is like for each of you to be in your relationship and how each of you understands how your relationship ended up in this distressed place. When I work with couples, I use a model called Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy (EFT). EFT provides me with a map, a way to help couples out of their stuck places. I have earned my Certification as an Emotionally Focused Couple Therapist and Supervisor.
