I believe couples work is about finding common ground, letting go of resentment and old hostility, and recognizing its not about who is right or wrong. We can reconnect with new communication skills to regain the connection from early in the relationship. Often recognizing that a relationship needs nourishing is difficult, and once realized making a call for help is even more so. We are here to serve the people f southern New Jersey with professional and judgement/bias free services.

A relationship requires work but it doesn't have to feel painful and exhausting along the way. Couples therapy focuses on helping partners form positive and meaningful interactions, develop relational goals, and build on communication skills in order to feel heard, understood, and deeply loved by your significant other. I use Emotion Focused Therapy to help partners label and understand each other's underlying feelings and to develop more affect and compassion for one another. I also offer couples yoga to work on intimacy and trust issues.

What secrets do happy couples hold? Are they built differently than us? Do they eat better, or sleep better? How is it that some of us can get along so well, while others of us deplete precious energy during numerous fights and disagreements. As a professional, I have some insight into this problem. Happy couples share two essentials. The first thing, their shared sense of love, is something we all know about. The secret love of happy couples sustains because both partners accept each other fully. The key is always, without condition, loving and accepting all of your partner all of the time. It's not magical. With effort and patience, we may all be happier, better spouses sometime soon.

Sometimes it's difficult to be in a relationship. No matter how much you love someone, there can be challenges and stress points within the relationship that create conflict. Couples seek counseling for many different reasons. Negative communication, infidelity and coping through a difficult life change are some reasons why couples seek counseling. Couples who want to learn how to communicate better and re-establish intimacy also seek therapy. I specialize in helping couples learn more effective ways of communicating with one another to increase intimacy, decrease relationship tension and meet other goals important to the relationship.

Licensed Psychologist

I always prefer to see couples BEFORE they get married, because so many problems can be avoided by getting started out on the right foot. By learning good communication and problem solving skills before marriage, you can move on to that next step with confidence and skill. I also work with couples for whom marriage is not the goal, who are gay or lesbian, or couples who simply have reached an impasse on an issue and are looking for an objective third party.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Feeling strong and secure in your primary relationship can have a positive impact on all areas of your life. Whether your are interested in pre-marital, marital or general couples counseling, I can help you improve your communication and overall satisfaction in your relationship. I use a model of counseling called Eco-Systemic Structural Family Therapy (ESFT) which emphasizes the idea that relationships patterns repeat themselves. I will help you and your partner identify these patterns, explore one another's perspectives and create new, healthier patterns that allow for happy and sustainable relationships.

Addiction Therapist, Family Therapist

In 19003 - Nearby to Merchantville.

Coupleship is a unique dynamic. Often we fall head over heels for someone.. everything seems meant to be and then after awhile you look over at this person and think...huh? This is way more common than people think. Making a partnership work is not easy as we were promised in fairy tales, but it can be the most amazing and deepest intimacy we have ever known if we are honest, healthy and truly committed. I help couples find this true intimacy again through couples counseling. My approach is practical, respectful, and solution oriented. If you have found this, you still have hope for the relationship. This is so important, let me help you take the next step to love deeply.

Licensed Professional Counselor

Do you find yourself wanting more for your current relationship? Are you desiring more closeness, intimacy and emotional connection with your partner? In the course of a relationship you may find that you are experiencing more frequent arguing and less frequent positive communication, but not sure why. I help couples gain insight into patterns and cycles that are keeping them stuck and unhappy. I have received training and use Gottman Method Couples Therapy and Emotionally Focused Therapy in my therapy work with couples. These therapies are very effective in helping couples repair, renew and restore their relationships to previous levels of love, caring and closeness.

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.

How to Get the Love You Want Take a minute to think about what you expect from a loving relationship with a partner. Does your list contain any of the following common expectations? o Healing past wounds o Meeting all of your current emotional needs o Fulfilling fantasies and idealizations of how life should be o Making up for other less rewarding aspects of life / making your life "whole" Any one of these expectations alone can be a very tall order! Not surprisingly, relationships often buckle under these kinds of pressures. So, what to do?
