Couples Counselor

Barbara Bennett, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Hillside

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.

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.

Jeff Robinson, MSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

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?

Kenneth Jedding, LCSW, MA

Licensed Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Hillside

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.

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.

Barbara Dietz, LCSW

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 counseling is the focus-area of my practice. Within that specialization, more specifically, I work with couples coping with infidelity and affair recovery.

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

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.
