Couples Counselor

Timothy McCarthy, PhD, LP, LMFT

Licensed Psychologist and Licensed Marriage-Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Dayton

Dr. McCarthy's approach of "Co–Coaching for Dynamic Growth" challenges many currently accepted beliefs about love/romance and what it takes to have a successful relationship: e.g. “you should just accept your partner and not try to change their behavior.” Rather, the relationship is seen as a dynamic growth process for learning how to become more loving partners through mutual coaching. Each partner seeks to clearly identify his or her own core negative relationship pattern and each helps the other change through mutual, respectful coaching. Couples previously unable to break longstanding recurring patterns learn to revitalize a new relationship of deep love and emotional connection!

Kippie Palesch, MA, LPCC

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

When love is new, we find ourselves thrilled by our partner. However, both science and experience tell us that infatuation has a limited shelf life. Conflict is a normal, predictable part of learning to be together. In fact, it's an opportunity, pointing exactly to the place where we need to grow. My expertise as a couples counselor helps guide you and your partner so that you can reclaim your friendship and handle conflict in gentle, positive ways. Gaining the tools you need to build a strong relationship, I can help you with issues including raising kids, rekindling interest in sex or romance, negotiating housework or finances or overcoming infidelity, infertility and blending families.

Working with couples is not only my specialty, it is my passion! I love helping romantic partners understand and resolve conflict, rekindle emotional and physical closeness, rebuild trust, heal hurt feelings, and rediscover their deep affection for one another. I practice the Gottman method of couples therapy, which is a scientifically-based approach incorporating nearly 40 years of research. I will help you learn what happy, successful couples do in their relationships and how you can implement those same strategies right now. I believe that love is what creates a relationship, so I welcome you regardless of the type or make-up of your specific relationship.

Couples Counselor

Lyndsey Fraser, MA, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Dayton

I specialize in couples of all backgrounds. This includes dating, engaged, living together, married, separating, divorcing, polyamorous, and same-sex (lesbian and gay). My goal is to provide you with a non-biased environment where relationship style is a personal choice away from societal stigmas. I also approach therapy with the thought that conflicts in relationships are not one partner’s fault. Instead it is a relational cycle that is influenced by all parties involved. Each partner holds a role in why conflict is occurring. Couples avoid therapy out of fear of being labeled the problem. In therapy with me no one is the problem. Instead it how you both relate that is the problem.

Couples Counselor

Chad Allen, MA, LPCC

Licensed Professional Clinical Counselor

Within driving distance of Dayton

In couple therapy, I strive to create a safe, fair, and collaborative environment in which each partner can freely express thoughts and feelings and come to feel heard and understood. I also help couples identify and alter the troublesome patterns in their relationships, often with insight into how they developed in the first place. By recognizing when problems in the present interaction are connected to past relational experiences, we are able to interrupt the cycle of conflict and blame, expand the capacity for empathy and understanding, and allow for the possibility of new ways of relating to emerge in the therapy.

As marriage therapist I enjoy working with couples. Sometimes couples need help to work through issues such as infidelity, infertility, parenting issues, sexual issues, defensiveness, in-law problems, step-parent or ex-spouse issues just to name a few.

Couples Counselor

Bruce Fischer, PhD, LP, LMFT

Licensed Psychologist, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Dayton

Couple counseling is helping a couple to develop a number of key skills. These include communicating clearly, listening, emotional expression, negotiating, being respectful, managing conflict, problem solving and finding ways to negotiate how they connect and also how they create separation in healthy ways. Couples can get suck when these skills are not well developed. My approach to couple work is to assess the relationship strengths and build on these while teaching key skills and resolving the challenges the couple faces. While looking at old issues is useful at times, I generally focus on how to build a clear & hopeful future. My clinical approach is direct, supportive and active.

Tessa Gittleman, MA, LAMFT

Licensed Associate Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Dayton

How do people with different needs, experiences, and worldviews always get along? They don't. They do the work, learn how to talk about it, compromise, forgive, and repeat because needs continue to change overtime. Whether you're a couple, thrupple, poly, open, or more traditional, when you commit to life alongside someone, things are bound to get complicated. I help you get to a place where you have the skills to maintain a healthy relationship outside the office, whether your goal is to stay together or consciously uncouple.
