Laurie Levine, LCSW
Couples Counselor

Laurie Levine, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 20170 - Nearby to Damascus.

The first kiss, the fun in the flirtation and the comfort of a warm hug from a partner gives us hope in the couples relationship. But, being in a couple (either heterosexual or homosexual) is HARD. We strive to get our needs met, be heard and find balance in the relationship. Many couples find that when their kids leave the home that their connection has suffered. Often it just takes an unbiased person to help maneuver through that age old argument or the newest wound. I have worked with many couples who have rediscovered their passion and realized how much they not only love each other, but really like each other as well.

Mary Lou Lyon, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 22101 - Nearby to Damascus.

A large part of my work as a therapist is with couples: married, unmarried and pre-marriage. My approach focuses on communication, conflict resolution and understanding the internal dynamics of each individual and how these dynamics affect the couple relationship. I seek to help you understand your own personality and background as well as that of your partner. I am certified to administer an inventory, which can uncover the similarities and differences in your relationship dynamics.

Mary L Lyon, LPC
Couples Counselor

Mary L Lyon, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 22101 - Nearby to Damascus.

Couples counseling, which includes marriage counseling, tends to be at least 50% of my work as a therapist. I have had post-graduate training in couples counseling and working with couples after an affair. I am also certified to provide pre-marriage counseling using the Prepare Inventory. There is great benefit in seeing a counselor when your relationship is fracturing. In therapy, each person is given the opportunity to express his or her concerns, communication and conflict resolution skills are developed, and new patterns of relating are established.

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.

John Rhead, Ph.D., CGP
Couples Counselor

John Rhead, Ph.D., CGP

Licensed Psychologist

In 21044 - Nearby to Damascus.

Committed and loving connections with a partner are probably the most challenging and potentially healing of all relationships in life. Deep fears of closeness tend to get in the way of realizing such potential, often without being consciously recognized as fears. I help partners in couples to find ways of being gentle and honest with each other and with themselves as they confront and overcome their fears.

Brad Wasserman, LCSW-C
Couples Counselor

Brad Wasserman, LCSW-C

Psychotherapist for Adults, Adolescents, Couples & Families

In 20886 - Nearby to Damascus.

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.
Couples Counselor

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.

Mary Beasley, M.Min, LCCC, LCPC
Couples Counselor

Mary Beasley, M.Min, LCCC, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Christian Counselor

In 20904 - Nearby to Damascus.

Given the many challenges that can lead to divorce (money problems, adultery, differences in raising children, etc.) the wisest thing couples can do is to seek Christian counseling before they say "I do." No matter how solid a couple’s relationship may be, problems and differences will inescapably arise, therefore, pre-marital counseling really operates like the best security system a couple could ever purchase. Our Christian counselors can be beneficial by familiarizing couples with targeted areas of conflict that often lead to divorce. These areas are: • Communication • In-Laws • Money/finances • Sexuality • Spiritual Intimacy • Roles (delegation of responsibilities and jobs in managing the home) • Religion/spiritual leadership.
