Psychotherapy and Counseling

In 10021 - Nearby to Fort Lee.

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.

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? Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com to learn how! Or call 877-606-6161. DR. FLEMING'S NEW RELATIONSHIP/COUPLES INTENSIVES. www.kevinflemingphd.com/marriage-couples-retreats.php

Couples often go through ups and downs. While this can be normal, many of us have discovered at times that we may not have the emotional, interpersonal, or practical skills to navigate this as well as we would like. There is a great deal of evidence that cognitive behavioral couples therapy is effective for increasing relationship satisfaction. There is even evidence that effective couples therapy can help to reduce depression symptoms. While a romantic relationship may require work, we also want it to be a source of support. Learning skills to effectively communicate, problem solve, and accept the situations a couple faces can significantly improve both partners' satisfaction.

Couples Counselor

The Imago Way, Psy.D. & L.C.S.W.

Licensed Psychologist & Licensed Social Worker

In 10543 - Nearby to Fort Lee.

I work with couples to become more conscious and intentional in their interactions. I teach couples specific communication skills to break destructive patterns of relating. I encourage each partner to look and their own behavior and how they may be contributing to the problems. I explore with couples how the problems they are having in their current relationship are related to their experiences in childhood. I work with couples on eliminating reactivity by implementing self-soothing techniques. My goal with couples is to have both partners feel heard and understood by each other.

Psychotherapist /Psychoanalyst

In 10463 - Nearby to Fort Lee.

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.

Karen Lewis, LCSW
Couples Counselor

Karen Lewis, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 07666 - Nearby to Fort Lee.

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.

Lauren Levy, LCSW
Couples Counselor

Lauren Levy, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 10128 - Nearby to Fort Lee.

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.

Serena Seligman, LCSW, MA, LCSW-R
Couples Counselor

Serena Seligman, LCSW, MA, LCSW-R

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 10016 - Nearby to Fort Lee.

For most marriages, the secret to contentment is having realistic expectations of each other, and ways of communicating in which each party feels heard. Through a practical, here and now oriented approach that involves insight, encouragement, and humor, I teach couples how to speak and hear each others language rather than engaging in unrewarding parallel monologues. Progress is usually quick! Call me to see if we're a match.

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.

Licensed Psychotherapist, Certified Couple and Sex Therapist

In 07030 - Nearby to Fort Lee.

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

Bennett Pologe, Ph.D.
Couples Counselor

Bennett Pologe, Ph.D.

Psychologist

In 10019 - Nearby to Fort Lee.

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.

Couples Counselor

Leo Battenhausen, LCSW, LCADC

Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Licensed Clinical Alcohol and Drug Counselor

In 07065 - Nearby to Fort Lee.

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.

Couples Counselor

David Alexander, Psychoanalyst, Gestalt Therapist

Licensed Psychoanalyst

In 11361 - Nearby to Fort Lee.

Drawing close in intimacy in a couple can be challenging. Being close to another person can result in buttons getting pushed in areas of the self that were never resolved. Despite the challenge, we deeply want to feel intimacy in life. Intimacy in relationship, while often challenging, is one of the greatest opportunities for growth. Caring, compassionate communication between partners opens each person to deeper feeling, connection, and expression. These capacities are crucial for a fulfilled life. I help you learn genuine communication expressing your needs while respecting and caring for your partner. These fulfilling communications lead to a better relationship and a better life.

Couples Counselor

Michael Picucci, PhD, MAC, SEP

Holistic Psychologist, Author, Focalizer

In 10003 - Nearby to Fort Lee.

In working with couples and conflicts, I approach it more as an organic facilitation process rather than traditional therapy. Utilizing new human technologies, we come to understand that there is no right or wrong or good and bad. Yet, there are insidious unconscious dynamics that are powerful and can cause blind spots. Our process together will tease apart these dynamics while working on resolving them, thereby uncovering new fields of possibilities.

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.

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

In 06830 - Nearby to Fort Lee.

Couples are my passion! When was the last time you had an open conversation with your partner about sex? About emotional intimacy? About communication? We look at the negative cycle that has swallowed you both up, causing stress and disconnection. I am also an affair specialist and have worked with countless couples to sift through the incredible pain to see if there is anything left of the relationship to be salvaged (in many cases, there is). I have met many couples who come in as roommates, where deep wounds are present. Couples feel like my office is a safe place to share, connect, get questions answered and get the professional help that they have needed.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 11377 - Nearby to Fort Lee.

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.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 10003 - Nearby to Fort Lee.

The first step is to do a free couple’s assessment. In this session we’ll get clear on what has been difficult for both of you and how have you have been feeling. We will look at what the most important things that you have not been getting from your relationship. Then we will determine what makes a relationship for you and what would potentially break up a relationship. In closing we will go over what does work about the relationship and I will teach you a method that will help a woman learn to speak to men and for men to know how to speak to a woman.
