Couples Counselor

Kristin Rosenthal, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Fort Washington

We specialize in helping couples, using Emotionally Focused Therapy. This is a complex approach which helps couples (of all sorts) to understand the deep need for safety and connection we all have, innately. When we feel repeatedly disappointed in the connection, or a serious breach such as an affair occurs, people react with protective anger, protesting the loss. Unfortunately, that angry protest often drives the more reticent partner farther away, leaving the first one even more desperate. We help people see that the unhappy cycle they are caught in is responsible for their suffering. And then we help them to find and share their more vulnerable feelings, creating a positive and affirming cycle....

Athena Staik, Ph.D., LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Fort Washington

A vibrant, fun and fulfilling couple relationship is very much within reach, providing both partners are willing to stretch to achieve the relationship of their dreams. I have developed conscious-love relationship therapy as a tool to energize partners to express self authentically, learn to connect and stretch to realize core inner drives for love and connection, for understanding and contribution. The treatment goals of couples work, ultimately, coincide with each partner achieving personal growth and transformation. As a top notch school, a couple relationship seems to be training ground where you come to understand your partner by better understanding yourself!

Couples Counselor

Mary Beasley, M.Min, LCCC, LCPC

Licensed Clinical Christian Counselor

Within driving distance of Fort Washington

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.

Couples Counselor

Nancy Montagna, Ph. D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of Fort Washington

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.

Couples Counselor

Linda Ritchie, Ph.D.

Licensed Professional Counselor/Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Fort Washington

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.

Christina Schultz, MA

Resident in Counseling, Supervised by Thomas Lamp, LPC

Within driving distance of Fort Washington

I approach couples counseling from an integrative perspective using Gottman, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), Bowen Family Systems, and Structural Family Therapy perspectives and techniques. My client is the couple relationship, and as a result I see couples together to observe and address unhealthy patterns, unfinished business and triggers, structural issues, triangles, and boundary issues that impacting the couple's relationship. I employ Gottman and in-session assessments to identify the strengths and vulnerabilities within the couples, and their joint goals. I tailor my couples counseling and homework assignments based on the underlying issues and the couples' unique needs.

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Fort Washington

There are countless models of healthy romantic relationships, from monogamous to polyamorous, and unique variations between partners. The scripts for dating and longterm relationships of our parents’ generations may not be applicable to your relationship, and there is no formal education in how to be a good partner or how to identify unhealthy relationships. But there is psychological research that shows that effective communication, emotional openness, intimacy, and other factors contribute to healthy relationships. Creating these conditions are skills that can be learned. I practice brief humanistic and emotion-focused therapy (EFT) to help my LGBTQ and hetero clients learn these skills.

Couples Counselor

Kathleen Hanagan, LCSW, TEP

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Fort Washington

Working with couples is a dynamic process that requires the therapist to maintain a safe space where both people can feel heard and understood. I am a certified Imago therapist and use a dialogical process to increase the emotional intimacy between the two people. I have worked with straight, bi, gay and lesbian and transgendered couples, and many different ethnic groups---and find that the challenges are essentially the same---to create a bond of trust that allows for all parts of the two people to show up and be accepted in the relationship. I share helpful handouts that people can use when they are home, to be able to deal with conflict more skillfully.
