Couples Counselor

Miriam Zuroff, Ph.D

PhD clinical psychology

Within driving distance of Utica

I work with couples on strengthening their lines of communication so that they are able to better understand each others needs and what will make their relationship grow. Through this mutual understanding they can relate to one another in a deeper and more meaningful way creating respect and sensitivity to each other. With this stronger foundation they are better able to tackle life's challenges as a team ultimately deepening the bond between them.

Marshall Maldaver, Ph.D, LP

Licensed Psychologist

The key to any healthy relationship is communication. When communication breaks down it can put distance between the people involved in the relationship and damage it. If you feel that you are not able to effectively communicate with your partner, couples therapy can help. Couples therapy teaches you to communicate in a more effective manner. Skills like listening and compromising are enforced so that disagreements can be settled in a way that leaves both sides feeling better. If you would like to discuss options for couples counseling please call me today.

Couples Counselor

Debbra Bronstad, LMFT

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Utica

Are you tired of having the same argument with your mate? Those arguments that never get resolved? Usually under the surface are unmet needs and dreams. Let me help you and your partner communicate at a deeper level so you don't leave each other guessing what you want. Has there been a breach of trust or a devastating loss? It can help to have a trusted counselor walk with you in the journey to help strengthen your partnership at your most vulnerable times. With divorce statistics outweighing the odds of a successful marriage, you owe it to yourselves and your family to get professional input before throwing in the towel. Research shows children are healthier with parents who stay together.

Couples Counselor

Ellen Craine, JD, LMSW, ACSW

Divorce and Family Mediator, Parenting Coordinator, & SW

Within driving distance of Utica

I utilize my experience as a family mediator and therapist to work collaboratively with couples to assist them in meeting their goals they wish to accomplish as a result of therapy. Typical issues that come up include communication, evaluating the relationship for marriage, evaluating the relationship for divorce, or any other issue that you as a couple are struggling with. Therapy/counseling of this nature is often 3 - 6 months of sessions every other week.

Couples Counselor

Richard Kneip, PhD

Great Lakes Psychology Group

Within driving distance of Utica

Although most relationships start out well, many often experience times of significant conflict. No matter what causes the conflict, it can create stress, tension, anxiety and feelings of hopelessness. People face many stressful situations in life; however, divorce and marital problems repeatedly rank as two of the top three most stressful situations (death of a spouse, child or close relative is number one). Many couples hope that relationship troubles will go away on their own. As a result, couples often wait many years after a problem starts before seeking out help such as marriage counseling. This can lead to the worsening of relationship problems and may create new problems such as physical symptoms of stress and psychological problems, such as...(view profile to read more)

Couples Counselor

Stephanie Sachs, LPC

Licensened Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Utica

All couples struggle. Sooner or later, you will struggle between yourselves and certainly together. It has been said that by the time a couple comes to therapy, they have waited 8 years longer than they should have. That's a long time, spent wishing things would just get better and/or pretending the struggle isn't there. As life brings changes within you, between you, and around you, it can be very beneficial to talk with a therapist who can help you with insight, coping, and communication skills. A therapist may be able to help you talk about sensitive subjects, such as sex, money, the kids, the affair, the compulsion, the addiction, the health crisis, the mental illness, the divorce...

Couples Counselor

Thomas Blume, Ph.D., LMFT, LPC

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Utica

Couple relationships can get into trouble within the first few minutes--or the first few chat messages. And troubles can arise after years of relational success. If you feel your relationship is going into negative directions, intervention can make a difference. My Identity Renegotiation approach seeks to locate and disable negative messages; find sources of support for a healthy relationship; develop an updated and more realistic image of who you can be in your relationship; and polish off the rough spots so you can move forward smoothly.

Couples Counselor

Thomas Bruno, LLP

Specialist in Clinical Pyschology

Within driving distance of Utica

Couples therapy is always more difficult than individual because I am having to listen carefully to two people. I think it is highly important for both parties to be heard, understood and validated. I usually address their differences, as well as mutual commonalities. Couples are usually in difficulty when their needs are not being met. Communication, lack of intimacy and issue of forgiveness continue to be the major issues. I have devised a program entitled "The Ingredients of An Ideal Relationship" that I use with couples. It has been highly effective in helping couples identify their issues and work towards resolution.

Couples Counselor

Susan Gross, PsyD, LP, CAADC

Licensed Psychologist, Certified Advanced Alcohol and Drug Counselor, Interventionist

Within driving distance of Utica

As a licensed clinical psychologist and addictions specialist, I work with couples, who are struggling with drugs, alcohol, rage, violence, and behavioral issues. I walk with couples through a partner or child's addiction and provide targeted therapy and information. I help couples, who have "tried everything," and turn to me for help with high-risk/high-conflict behavior. I have the crisis intervention skills to provide immediate help. I restore hope in relationships that are being torn apart by by many types of addiction and anger.

Couples Counselor

Michael Govan, MA, LLP, LPC, LSGC, EMDR II

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Utica

When Couples come in to work with me, I listen to both of them equally and help them put into words what their concerns really are. Once this is defined, I have all kinds of skills that help them. Usually this comes down to communication breakdowns, so I teach them specific tools for effective communication.I even role play these skills right in my office so they can practice them through the week. If I notice one party has some concerns individually, I make individual counseling available to them. I keep them on task each week so they do not loose sight or hope in the process. This has led to over a 90% success rate when working with couples. come in for a free consultation!!!

Liz Grazioli-Talbot

Within driving distance of Utica

Couple counseling at Kairos Counseling Center is a two fold process. Taking a partner screening device to identify strengths and weaknesses each partner brings to the relationship is key to developing an effective solution to the couple's problems. Through couple communication skills training, a new appreciation for each other develops. Negative energy that was a part of the couple's old relationship vanishes when we communicate in a kind and loving way. No longer do couples war but now an agreed upon communication is established to help meet their needs.
