Jeffrey Crouch, LCSW-C

Therapist

Within driving distance of Kettering

I provide marriage and couples counseling. I help couples to improve their communications to reduce arguing and to improve their understanding of each other. I also work with couples going through the pain of an affair. In most cases couples can work through their feelings and have an improved connection. Being a male therapist sometimes can help reluctant husbands/partners feel more comfortable coming to therapy and talking in therapy.

Couples Counselor

Laurie Friedman Donze, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Kettering

I provide couples therapy for married or engaged couples and those in an otherwise committed relationship. In couples therapy, I typically take a brief history of each partner, with the other present. We will discuss the history of your relationship and when any problems began. We will discuss the current problems in the relationship and goals for treatment. The focus of treatment will NOT be on analyzing and discussing the problems but rather on repairing the relationship and connection with positive relationship habits. I will give you behavioral homework at each session, which we will discuss at the next session.

Couples Counselor

Kristin Rosenthal, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Kettering

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....

Couples Counselor

Elizabeth Nyang, Ed.D., LCPC

Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Kettering

Sometimes a couple reaches a place where they need to work on resolving different conflict in their relationship. There may be communication issues and the ability to make thoughtful decisions about the relationship is lost. I use the Gottman approach to help you identify where the major issues are and interventions to help improve communication. I will be your neutral mediator, I do not take sides. My focus will be on the relationship and both of you will get time to give your story. The couple will have an opportunity to talk through the issues and at times figure out what the issues are.

Couples Counselor

Paul Kelner, Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Certified Sex Addiction & Anger Management Therapist

Within driving distance of Kettering

Learning that one's spouse or partner has been living a "secret" sexual life can very quickly lead to the dissolution of a marriage or relationship. I work with couples to help heal the damage that one spouse has done to the marriage and family. Couples therapy can also be helpful in helping couples heal from the damage caused by a spouse's anger issues.

There are unique challenges in romantic relationships that differ from other types of friendship and yet friendship is the basis for most happy couples. I utilize the Gottman Method to assess the strengths and challenges in your relationship and help you explore the differences in your beliefs, expectations, communication styles, etc. After the assessment we will work together to create the therapy goals for your relationship.

John Rhead, Ph.D., CGP

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of Kettering

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.

Mary Lou Lyon, LPC

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.

Couples Counselor

Jade Wood, MA, LMFT, MHSA

Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Kettering

Relationships are hard! They can bring out the best in us...and also the worst. What's more, its easy to feel confused and unable to see what is happening clearly when things in your relationship are troubled. Relationships can be up & down, and often it is that one familiar pattern or issue that triggers everything. As you and your partner are so 'in it', it is pretty difficult to find your own way out of the same old behavior. I work with couples, providing an unbiased and neutral perspective, helping you gain greater understanding into what is happening and how you want things to change. Yes, relationships are hard, but also contain infinite potential for healing & renewal.

Couples Counselor

Beth Levine, LCSW-C

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Kettering

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.
