Licensed Clinical Social Worker

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.

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.

I provide couples counseling that emphasizes that there are two separate individuals contributing to one couples dynamic. Therefore I strive to understand how each member of the couple functions and how this impacts the relationship. The goal is to determine if the couple can learn how to complement one another in a manner that will maximize relationship satisfaction.

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 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

Coming to counseling as a couple is fraught with risk. Will the therapist be fair? Will I be heard? Will I feel a connection with the therapist? What will be involved? Most couples seek therapy well into the conflict--yes, never too late, but more challenging to heal. It is the responsibility of the therapist to hear both stories. Each partner comes with his/her own histories that have become part of the narrative. We need to take a look at this to see how it has impacted the relationship. We need to highlight the need for empathy in our relationships—we may not agree, but can we understand and feel how our partner may be experiencing the matter at hand? Can we have compassion?

Bennett Pologe, Ph.D.

Psychologist

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.

Barbara Bennett, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 10001 - Nearby to Fort Lee.

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.

Marriage or couple relationships are a tug of war for power and control. When the leverage of the couple becomes one sided: disappointment, fears, worries and anger become predominant emotions. At this point, you may think about leaving because you can't understand your conflicted feelings. Remember, " You can't run away from yourself". It is essential to know your contribution to the dysfunction in the relationship. When you can face your feelings and behaviors patterns and take responsibility for your actions leaving the "blame" behind, the couple begins the repair process enabling respectful listening and communicating leading to healing feelings and setting the stage for intimacy.
