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.

I work with couples only at the request of my clients. We can bring their significant other in the session to help explain what the client is going through with her symptoms and how the two of them can work together to overcome them. In a way that the two are communicating each others needs and identifying what the relationship will look like. I use the same approach of identify the issue and working through the process with intervention techniques.

Licensed Psychologist

In 21032 - Nearby to Riva.

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.

Many couples have difficulties communicating. There may have been an affair or there may be a loss of intimacy. I can teach you powerful ways to respectfully resolve issues, communicate and connect in a safe, nurturing way to restore caring and love. You can learn effective ways to bring healing and forgiveness back into your relationship. Since each couple is unique, I use a variety of approaches, such as, the 'Couples Dialogue' developed by Dr. Harville Hendrix, Emotionally Focused Therapy of Dr. Susan Johnson, research of Dr. John Gottman, among others. I also help premarital couples to avoid pitfalls in their relationship and prepare for a successful long-term relationship.

I generally see each person individually prior to seeing a couple. I do not keep secrets in relationships and make that clear, as that would undermine trust.

Nancy Montagna, Ph. D.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

Available for Online Therapy

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.

Licensed Psychologist

In 21044 - Nearby to Riva.

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.

Do you feel like you and your partner are just roommates? Do you feel like there is no longer any intimacy in your relationship? Do you struggle with mismatched levels of sexual desire? All of these things are common in relationships, especially long-term relationships. It’s easy to fall into a rut and lose the sense of passion you and your partner once had. You lose track of the things that attracted you to your partner in the first place. Over time, those once-attractive characteristics (and other characteristics you didn’t even know about when you first got together) become an annoyance. You no longer find them as appealing as you once did. But believe it or not, there are things you can
