Most couples struggle to figure out how to make their relationships work at one time or another. Couples therapy can be an effective means of managing conflicts, deepening intimacy and friendship and making difficult but important decisions in and about your relationship. Each relationship is unique but most can benefit from making improvements in communication, learning more about what each partner needs and from working to most effectively negotiate differences. I have been working towards these goals with couples for over 10 years and would be happy to talk with you about whether I can be helpful to you and your partner.

You are at the end of your rope. You love your partner, you don't want to end the relationship so you are looking for help, or perhaps you just found out the awful truth that your partner is having an affair or watching porn, or is never willing to connect. Maybe you have tried couple therapy before and things improved a bit then you found yourself back in the same sad stuck place. Possibly this is the first time you are seeking support. Couples often need help to find their way back to each other.

W. Michael Hart, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

In 10013 - Nearby to Hackensack.

So much of what makes a couple successful comes from careful listening and clearly communicating wants, needs and experience. It is easy to fall into the trap of making incorrect assumptions, letting misunderstandings fester and forgetting what you loved about your partner in the first place! The benefit of working with me is that I can provide the safe space to explore and fix how you might be organizing around each other in a way that results in frustration, confusion and anger. We can work with each other and get back on track!

Couples Counselor

Bennett Pologe, Ph.D.

Psychologist

In 10019 - Nearby to Hackensack.

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.

In 07620 - Nearby to Hackensack.

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

Lauren Levy, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 10128 - Nearby to Hackensack.

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.

Carolyn AlRoy, Psy.D.
Couples Counselor

Carolyn AlRoy, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

In 10001 - Nearby to Hackensack.

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).

Licensed Psychologist & Licensed Social Worker

In 10543 - Nearby to Hackensack.

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.

Couples sometimes find that their relationships – once the source of so much intimacy and joy – have become disappointing, even destructive. We all reach impasses in our relationships, and these can be opportunities to overcome obstacles and grow together or to recognize irreconcilable differences and end the relationship in a healthy way. Together in therapy we can work to help you shift from criticizing and blaming to discovering individual feelings that underlie the surface conflicts. It can have a liberating and transformative effect on both you relationship and yourselves.

I usually see each person separately for a while to determine what the dynamics are and what each person brings to the relationship that is their own issues that need resolution.I will then see them together and achieve better results.My style of working with couples has been effective if both are ready to look at their issues and improve communication.

Walter Masterson, LCSW

Psychotherapy and Counseling

In 10021 - Nearby to Hackensack.

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.

In 10168 - Nearby to Hackensack.

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.

Psychotherapist

In 10011 - Nearby to Hackensack.

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.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 11377 - Nearby to Hackensack.

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.
