Couples therapy is not what it seems. Couples often come to therapy looking to get "closer" but moving toward more intimacy is not a linear process. As a couples therapist, I help people to focus on themselves as individuals and the movement between self-needs and relational-needs. It is the dance between these two dimensions that moves a couple toward building their unique connection, an authentic relationship built on mutuality, respect, and separateness/closeness at different times. Most couples wait to come to therapy when things have been going wrong for too long. They have tried various couples therapists who haven't had the ability to see what is not being said.

People entering couples counseling are oftentimes looking for a way to change their partner. In truth, what usually has occurred is a new context of life, usually stress, imposing itself on the couple which sometimes brings out different responses in different people. Really, couple wants and needs to find new ways of being together, as they perceive staying together as less daunting than splitting apart. In couples counseling, we carefully tease out what each partner does to make the relationship difficult, collaboratively lay out what expectations each can have of the other, and find new ways each can express their fondness and affection for the other.

Psychotherapist

There are countless models of healthy romantic relationships, from monogamous to polyamorous, and unique variations between partners. The scripts for dating and longterm relationships of our parents’ generations may not be applicable to your relationship, and there is no formal education in how to be a good partner or how to identify unhealthy relationships. But there is psychological research that shows that effective communication, emotional openness, intimacy, and other factors contribute to healthy relationships. Creating these conditions are skills that can be learned. I practice brief humanistic and emotion-focused therapy (EFT) to help my LGBTQ and hetero clients learn these skills.

Psychotherapist

In 10016 - Nearby to Clifton.

I believe that our love relationships are the most powerful mirror to reflect back to us the condition of our psyches. Love provides us with the courage to face our faults, weaknesses and misapprehensions and creates the impetus to change that which stands in the way of our peace, happiness and personal evolution. In my work with couples, together we view the family systems that form each partner and then we envision and create the new system of the couple relationship. Our work together fosters intimacy, communication, empathy, and most importantly, mutual respect. Whatever the outcome, honesty and love are able to flow in the safety of this environment.

What are the most common couples' issues? If you are thinking "communication, conflict, sex, money, child rearing" you are correct. However, most therapists will go after the symptom on each side of the couple fence thinking that the way to effective change is by getting each party to "work" on their respective "issue". Many times the parties don’t agree but comply. Imagine if you could align the unconscious brains of a couple and stop the "working on your issues" part that has become so popular in therapy settings?

It can be so easy to fall into patterns and, over time, find that you keep having the same issues or arguments within your relationship or marriage. That's where couples counseling can help. Talking out issues and problems in a judgement-free space with a neutral third party invested in your progress and growth can help you and your relationship move forward. My goal as couples therapist is to listen to you and give you the tools and techniques to help get your relationship back on track. When you're ready to stop having the same conversations and to move forward in your relationship or marriage, let's talk.

Couples Counselor

Mitchell Milch, LCSW

Psychotherapist/Couples Counselor

In 07450 - Nearby to Clifton.

Couples in trouble are often spouses who are at odds with each other over unrealistic expectations that true love be their salvation. The spouse who is not the answer to personal unhappiness is blamed as the problem. The answer is to create a "we" that meets the mutual needs of the partners, and creates an environment of safety and security to empower each partner to be more accepting and loving of themselves.

Wendi Dumbroff, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 07936 - Nearby to Clifton.

I work with many couples in my practice. I illustrate the negative cycles they get into, which is very important in calming volatile interactions, and understanding how each person triggers the other, which keeps their negative cycles in motion. We explore family histories and the messages, and coping skills they learned. I help couples to understand the emotions under their anger and frustration, and to begin to speak to their partner from this softer place. It is a process which can shift negative patterns, and create closeness. Whether there has been an affair, communication issues, a breach of trust, sexual intimacy issues, or something else, there can be a path back to each other.

Barbara Bennett, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 10001 - Nearby to Clifton.

Relationships are hard, as any news site will eagerly tell you. Stories of celebrity affairs, break-ups and other scandals are so common that there doesn’t seem to be much hope for the rest of us. I’m here to tell you that there is hope, even after years of tension, conflict, or emotional distance for any couple—straight, gay, dating, married, post-divorce—from any racial, ethnic, or spiritual background. Conflict happens in all relationships. But it isn’t inevitable, even after years of bad feeling. I help couples step outside of their pain and frustration to see each of their roles in these conflicts. From there, couple can begin to communicate and finally have conversations that have productive outcomes leading to greater intimacy.

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

In 10018 - Nearby to Clifton.

We help couples strengthen their relationships in a safe, confidential setting. Counseling can give you insight into your dynamics, prevent disagreements from escalating, repair emotional wounds, and rekindle passion. Even the healthiest, most loving couples fight. Disagreements are natural in any relationship. What matters is how you process them. What lessons do you learn? What actions do you take to meet everyone’s needs going forward? It takes uncommon skills to resolve disputes with sensitivity. An experienced New York couples counselor can illuminate your relationship dynamics in useful ways, resolve existing conflicts and prevent unhealthy escalation.

Licensed Psychoanalyst

In 10001 - Nearby to Clifton.

Sometimes members of a couple get stuck in their old relational patterns, the ways they have always related to others. As years pass by, and romance or sexual experiences diminish or other life events happen, the old patterns become more evident leading to gaps in communication, dissatisfaction, and lack of excitement. As a therapist, I will help you to communicate more effectively with your partner, in ways that acknowledge your personal needs and the needs of the other. I will help you find balance between conflicting needs: the needs of the individual and the needs of a couple. I work with straight couples and GLBT couples.

Couples Counselor

Leo Battenhausen, LCSW, LCADC

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor

In 07065 - Nearby to Clifton.

Couples commonly get distracted and misread each others' needs while forgetting that their partner is not a mind reader. "Why does he..?" or "She thinks I...!" The "scripts" as I called them in relationships get read over and over again, but the end is always the same..,feeling unheard, invalidated or insulted. Other times outside situations in our lives cause us to bottle-up frustration and anger, and little things that happen in our relationships with loved ones become major storms of argument that do not belong to our partner. Let me help. Let's sort out the "issues" that repeat and never get solved and find solutions that will restore your communication and understanding of each other.

Licensed Psychologist

In 10001 - Nearby to Clifton.

It's important that you know that I don't take sides or engage in blaming either partner. I understand that you are in my office because you want help. I get to know the couple as individuals and as a couple. So in addition to meeting together, I would meet individually with both partners. We would come up with a treatment plan, including frequency of meeting and schedule, treatment goals, and what each person wants from the therapy. We might focus on identifying feelings, changing toxic communication patterns, and opening up communication.

You don’t even know how long it’s been since you and your partner felt connected. Life has gotten so crazy that prioritizing togetherness falls straight to the bottom of your mental to-do list. You know you are ‘all in’. You are fully committed and want this to work. It’s just that, when the same old problems and arguments come up you start to wonder, “Why am I doing this? Is it over?” Maybe there is a crisis, you’ve been unfaithful or you discovered that your partner was, how do you pick up the pieces? How can you possibly move on? I'm here to tell you, its possible to heal. It's possible to have the life you truly want.

You will benefit from Couples Counseling with me particularly if you are a parent. Becoming a parent is filled with joy but can have a lot of stressors too, especially for the couple's relationship. There is a whole new constellation in the home with new roles, competition. Sometimes there is a great deal of conflict around child rearing practices. Couples Counseling can facilitate communication between a couple and help ease the journey into parenthood.
