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.

I help couples in therapy to discuss their problems in order to work issues out in a calm way. If one or both of you need one-to-one therapy, it will be recommended, each seeing a different therapist. With more understanding of oneself, it will be easier to see the other's point of view and to compromise. In couples or marriage counseling I help you both to recognize projections so that you may relate to each other in a healthier way.

Couples Counselor

Barbara Dietz, LCSW

Within driving distance of Old Bridge

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 Counselor

Wendi Dumbroff, MA, LPC

Licensed Professional Counselor

Within driving distance of Old Bridge

I work with many couples in my practice. I illustrate the negative cycles they get into, which is very important in calming volatile interactions, and understanding how each person triggers the other, which keeps their negative cycles in motion. We explore family histories and the messages, and coping skills they learned. I help couples to understand the emotions under their anger and frustration, and to begin to speak to their partner from this softer place. It is a process which can shift negative patterns, and create closeness. Whether there has been an affair, communication issues, a breach of trust, sexual intimacy issues, or something else, there can be a path back to each other.

Couples Counselor

Kim Leatherdale, LPC, ATR-BC, NCC, DCC

Licensed Professional Counselor, Art Therapist

Within driving distance of Old Bridge

You fell in love with your partner, enjoyed the heady first days of the relationship, but staying in love is difficult. Your relationship isn't what it was or you want, you "can't seem to get it right", or even start. The "happily ever after" fairy tale has soured. You can reauthor your story - you know life is not a fairy tale, but the real tale is far more interesting. Therapy is not about being broken, sick or wrong. It's about growth, courage & moving forward. You can learn practical skills to create an authentic loving relationship which includes passion & intimacy as well as caring & communication. It is exciting & joyful to rediscover your feelings for each other.

Therapist

Couples, married or otherwise, can find themselves in situations where they feel stuck or facing roadblocks. The relationship dynamic is complicated and there are two of you bringing your own separate personalities, histories, and emotions together while trying to build and maintain a relationship that improves both of your lives. Changing perspectives, understanding one another better, and learning better communication are some of the benefits and goals of relationship work.

Couples Counselor

Daniel Minuchin, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Old Bridge

The largest part of my work is with couples. My experience is that even couples with serious issues benefit from couples counseling. Looking at the repeating patterns they have with each other rather than the details of each fight. Focusing on what they can change rather than blaming the other person. Listening and exploring the misunderstandings that arise and the ways that they are different from each other. Paying attention to increasing their strengths, not just dealing with problems. Having a third person there, to slow things down and stop stuck interactions. All of this tends to allow change. Usually couples improve. If not, couples work can help people to separate more healthily.

I help couples feel safe with me, as an impartial person who does not take sides, but rather helps them explore their relationship. I will teach communication skills so that you express your truth in an honest and effective way and to hear your partner's side without defensiveness; I will help you explore past influences that effect your current interaction. I will help you offer loving support both to yourself and to your partner . And then I will help you learn to compromise, as together you work out the inevitable tangles of two complex beings striving towards intimacy.

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.
