Barbara Dietz, LCSW

Licensed Therapist

Couples counseling brings a third person - the therapist – into the dyad in hopes of clarifying or resolving conflict that threatens the integrity of the two-person relationship. Patterns can develop in a relationship that are hard to identify without an independent listener. Fears and needs from early life often unknowingly influence how we experience our partner. Learning to know your partner’s strengths and weaknesses as seen through the lens of a trained listener can help you see each other in a new differently.

I am trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples. This approach, based on attachment theory, helps couples to be able to explore each others' feelings and issues on a deeper level in a safe environment. Once the couples' emotions are de-escalated, communication, understanding and healing can begin. With this approach, the couple learns how to accept, connect with and support each other.

I help couples feel safe with me, as an impartial person who does not take sides, but rather helps them explore their relationship. I will teach communication skills so that you express your truth in an honest and effective way and to hear your partner's side without defensiveness; I will help you explore past influences that effect your current interaction. I will help you offer loving support both to yourself and to your partner . And then I will help you learn to compromise, as together you work out the inevitable tangles of two complex beings striving towards intimacy.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 10028 - Nearby to Clifton.

Despite our best efforts, sometimes relationships have challenges and difficulties that are beyond the norm and require outside support and assistance. Couples therapy is increasingly common and provides ideas on how to improve relationships. Choice Theory/Reality Therapy in particular has been helpful in improving marriages by emphasizing the importance of the relationship itself.

Bennett Pologe, Ph.D.
Couples Counselor

Bennett Pologe, Ph.D.

Psychologist

In 10019 - Nearby to Clifton.

As has been the cry of physicians since the breed was invented: Why do you wait so long to come see me?! Research has shown that couples don't seek help for on average six years after problems emerge, by which time the resentment and problems have become long standing and unwieldy. By then, as any of you who have gone to couples counseling probably know, the therapy feels like too little too late and couples leave discouraged by the size of the problems. Solution: Go sooner! Even the best relationships require tending and attention, so when something is brewing that you can't resolve yourselves, don't let it fester. The sooner you go for a tune-up, the faster (and cheaper) it'll be.

Dr. Vaughan has been working with couples for over 15 years. Treatment aims to identify unwanted relational patterns and to help couples to work through and prevent such patterns. Partners establish relational tools necessary for clearly conveying needs and desires and for effectively meeting the needs of their significant others. Over the course of treatment, couples feel more trusting, connected, and understood.

Carolyn AlRoy, Psy.D.
Couples Counselor

Carolyn AlRoy, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

In 10001 - Nearby to Clifton.

I get to know the couples as individuals and as a couple. So, I would start with a joint session with the both of you, and then see you both individually. The reason for that is that people share different information with and without their partner. All information is confidential, and the rule is "No leaking" (that is, not to talk about your individual session, with me, with your partner).

Couples Counselor

Priska Imberti, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 11377 - Nearby to Clifton.

It can take us a lifetime to learn to accept the person we have chosen to live with, but it could also take us the same time to try to change that person and not be successful. Couples Therapy can help us understand that even though we all have the potential to change, we cannot change the other. We can learn how to accept the other person, live together or decide not to, and explore what are our own contributions to the dilemmas that we present.

Couples Counselor

Johannes Marselis, LCSW, LCSW

Psychotherapist

In 11225 - Nearby to Clifton.

All couples endure the pulls of difference of opinion, contradictory goals, feelings, and betrayals, sometimes ever so slight. But when unattended to, when communication has become challenged or when there is an infidelity or other actions that betray trust it is natural to seek assistance. My goal is that both of you feel respected for who you are and what you would like to achieve in your lives. However, the process of discovery can be incredibly challenging, if not painful. Acceptance, forgiveness, change - these can seem impossible to imagine at times, but can be achieved. Some couples desire to improve their relationships, and others to end them with respect and clear communication.

Karen Lewis, LCSW
Couples Counselor

Karen Lewis, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 07666 - Nearby to Clifton.

I cannot get along with my spouse or partner. No matter what I do, it is never right. He/she does not hear what I say, it is always heard in a distorted manner. I am at a loss! If any of these issues resonate with you, I can help you and your partner develop a better relationship. We can work together to accomplish whatever your goals may be.
