Couples Counselor

Walter Masterson, LCSW

Psychotherapy and Counseling

Within driving distance of East Orange

Careers and children each place enormous stress on a couple’s ability to be together in an intimate and satisfying way. Every couple has different ways of dealing with the challenges, and counseling can provide the perspective and encouragement to re-create a shared vision for the future. For something as important as this, it is surprising how little training and preparation is provided; family therapy fills in the blanks, and resolves the confusion.

Couples Counselor

Kenneth Jedding, LCSW, MA

Licensed Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of East Orange

We can say that life is measured in our relationships, and those are an art as much as a science. It's extremely helpful to have a third person in the room, which lets you and your partner understand the world from the other partner's point of view. I've facilitated so many couples to break out of their unproductive, defensive orientations, hear what the other is truly saying, and come up with a mutual language for moving forward. On a personal note, I've been married for over twenty years, so from my both professional orientation as well as my relational experience, I know how important it is for couples to develop creative solutions to move forward in a positive way.

Couples Counselor

Lauren Levy, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of East Orange

I utilize an eclectic approach when working with couples which includes Imago Relationship Therapy and a number of other processes that help each partner feel fully heard and understood. My goal is to help you connect in a way that fosters empathy and taking responsibility for one's role in the problems which brought you to therapy. My clients often say, "I never felt like he/she heard me before. Not like this." Couples often say that they come to therapy because their relationship is not working and they want to make it work. When couples allow me to show them "another way" to improve their communication and connect with each other the results are transformative.

Couples Counselor

Nataliya Rusetskaya, Ph.D., LCSW,

Licensed Psychotherapist, Certified Couple and Sex Therapist

Within driving distance of East Orange

Currently I work with couples to create a therapeutic alliance of trust and safety, to gain better insights about their life challenges, and to assist the clients in reaching their goals and connect better with their loved ones through improved communication patterns and increased intimacy. The pain and conflict of the committed relationship arise not out of lack of love for our partners, but from misunderstanding what love relationship is about. Using Imago Dialogue restores contact and connection, enabling mutual emotional healing, restarting the developmental engine and leading to the recovery of personal wholeness

Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within driving distance of East Orange

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?

Couples Counselor

Barbara Dietz, LCSW

Within driving distance of East Orange

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.

Couples Counselor

H.C. Fall Willeboordse, LCSW-R

Fall Willeboordse, LCSW-R

Within driving distance of East Orange

Every couple is unique in the way the partners relate, communicate, and approach conflict---or fail to do so. For that reason I treat every couple according to its own very specific issues. If you feel you’ve been coming up against the same problems with no resolution, or have had a new crisis emerge in your relationship, getting help sooner rather than waiting can often repair and strengthen the relationship. I work short term and am solution-focused.

Couples Counselor

Nicole Borger, M.A., LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

Within driving distance of East Orange

Most couple experience issues in their relationship due to problems with their communication style. We will work together to help identify issues and increase communication skills to help you solve problems existing within the relationship. I act as a mediator to help partners ensure they are heard as we work toward shared goals and decrease conflict in the process.

Couples Counselor

Rev. Christopher Smith, LCAC, LMHC, LMFT

Helping you find wholeness...

Within driving distance of East Orange

Christopher sees couples (married, re-marriage or otherwise) understanding that close relationships are important in our lives. We are also all human, and at times these relationships do not live up to what we had hoped for. Together, with different techniques and appropriate help, issues can be addressed and the relationship can be continued (or, if desired, terminated) so that everyone has a sense of wholeness and peace within this important dimension of their lives. Christopher will guide your as you explore what is going on and though the journey to wholeness.

Couples Counselor

Wendi Dumbroff, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of East Orange

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.

Couples Counselor

Carolyn AlRoy, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

Within driving distance of East Orange

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

Judy Strauss, PhD, LCSW

Psychotherapist /Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of East Orange

Sometimes couples need to learn how to disagree and still be in love. If there is love still alive in the relationship there is hope for couples struggling to achieve a more loving and meaningful relationship. There is often a third party ,be it another person, an addiction, money or children that gets between a couple and creates a divide. Understanding where the other is coming from with compassion in the presence of a couples counselor can be the beginning of a better and long lasting relationship.

Couples Counselor

Bennett Pologe, Ph.D.

Psychologist

Within driving distance of East Orange

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.
