Each couple is unhappy in its own way, but the core of the unhappiness is always miscommunication. Generally each member of a couple brings bad communication habits to the relationship and these habits clash. I use an eclectic approach to couples therapy that combines the latest research, utilizing psychoanalysis, role playing, role reversal, video and practice in constructive communication skills. In time, couples learn to communicate in a way that leads to resolution, not conflict.

Do you or your partner suffer from social anxiety and it's affecting your relationship? Social anxiety is a fear of negative judgment from others and it can lead to reduced levels of intimacy, suppressed emotions, feelings of isolation and loneliness and lack of communication. If one or both of you feels anxious socially, your relationship may be suffering too. Contact me for ways in which you can move past social anxiety to a fuller, intimate, richer, relaxed more authentic relationship.

Lauren Levy, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 10128 - Nearby to Montvale.

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.

Our intimate relationships can be our greatest source of happiness or the source of our deepIest pain. My desire is to help you explore how your beliefs and choices have disrupted your relationship and have undermined your personal happiness. Good relationships require mutual respect, flexibility, and commitment. If you have lost your way and find yourself stuck in repetitive and destructive patterns of interaction, I can help you identify and understand what is driving those patterns and determine strategies for overcoming them.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 07666 - Nearby to Montvale.

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.

Christi Lindsay, PsyD
Couples Counselor

Christi Lindsay, PsyD

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 10012 - Nearby to Montvale.

Why do we seem to have the same arguments over and over again? How do I know if we are really supposed to be together? Are there things we could be doing to better support each other, to help each other grow and be our best selves? If we really love each other, why do we so often hurt each other? How do I know if this is real love, anyway? Relationships are hard. Even more than desire, they require effort and understanding to make them work. Often, even if two people really love each other, one or both may need help to maintain the right effort or understanding to keep the balance necessary for long-term success. Having outside, objective support can make all the difference.

Michael Fisher, PhD
Couples Counselor

Michael Fisher, PhD

Clinical Psychologist

In 10001 - Nearby to Montvale.

Couples seek out psychotherapy for many reasons ranging from the tensions that arise as relationships evolve to the pain of infidelity. Most obviously in working with couples I begin by trying to understand the nature of the problem that brought them to seek therapy. I find that one of the most valuable things I do is create a safe environment where issues can be expressed and feelings shared. Importantly, I help couples to avoid knee-jerk emotional responses and open up lines of communication that can help bring couples closer.

Laura OKeefe, LCSW
Couples Counselor

Laura OKeefe, LCSW

Psychotherapist / Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 10536 - Nearby to Montvale.

Some therapists may recommend to a particular couple that the partners engage first in individual therapy, separately, before engaging in couples work. If both partners are not able to maintain a certain level of insight, responsibility, and maturity in their communications, couples work will be ineffective. For relationship counseling to significantly help a relationship, each partner needs to have a commitment to the relationship, or, at least to the couples counseling for the time it continues. Each partner must be generally honest, self-aware, and interested in doing relationship work to have an optimal outcome. Some couples need therapy to help end a relationship in a healthy manner.

Licensed Clinical Psychologist

In 10605 - Nearby to Montvale.

It can be so easy to fall into patterns and, over time, find that you keep having the same issues or arguments within your relationship or marriage. That's where couples counseling can help. Talking out issues and problems in a judgement-free space with a neutral third party invested in your progress and growth can help you and your relationship move forward. My goal as couples therapist is to listen to you and give you the tools and techniques to help get your relationship back on track. When you're ready to stop having the same conversations and to move forward in your relationship or marriage, let's talk.

Stefanie Robison, MA, LMHC
Couples Counselor

Stefanie Robison, MA, LMHC

Licensed Mental Health Counselor

In 10003 - Nearby to Montvale.

When working with couples, I believe that communication trumps all. I want to help each person in the relationship be heard and understood. I create a safe environment where both clients are able to speak openly and help to make sure the others in the room truly comprehend what their partner is trying to share. So often in relationships, we are at a point where we no longer try to understand because there has been too much pain, I help you find that ability to understand one another again.
