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.

Licensed Psychotherapist

Relationship can bring great joy as well and great challenges. Many problems stem from difficulty communicating with your partner. I can assist you in finding the way to express yourself, as well as the capacity to listen; to find the appropriate boundaries that enable you to feel free while staying connected. Working through conflicts in relationships often not only preserves the relationship, but also empowers each individual to be more confident and open in their own life.

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).

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?

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.

I am trained in Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples. This approach, based on attachment theory, helps couples to be able to explore each others' feelings and issues on a deeper level in a safe environment. Once the couples' emotions are de-escalated, communication, understanding and healing can begin. With this approach, the couple learns how to accept, connect with and support each other.

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

In 10536 - Nearby to River Vale.

Couples are my passion! When was the last time you had an open conversation with your partner about sex? About emotional intimacy? About communication? We look at the negative cycle that has swallowed you both up, causing stress and disconnection. I am also an affair specialist and have worked with countless couples to sift through the incredible pain to see if there is anything left of the relationship to be salvaged (in many cases, there is). I have met many couples who come in as roommates, where deep wounds are present. Couples feel like my office is a safe place to share, connect, get questions answered and get the professional help that they have needed.

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?

Most relationships get strained at some point. Working with a therapist may be helpful. Couple's counseling, marriage counseling, and relationship therapy is the process of working with a couple to identify and manage problematic issues or dynamics in a relationship. Treatment may include examining how each of the partners' personalities and values influence communication and behavior within the relationship.

Relationships play a role in almost every aspect of life. If any of the following questions apply to you: Do you want more out of your relationships? Are you experiencing conflict in your intimate relationships? Are you afraid of loosing a relationship? Are you lonely? Are you frustrated by looking for a love relationship? Have you just lost a relationship? I can help individuals look inward and understand more about themselves and what is getting in the way, so that you can take steps forward towards being more fulfilled.

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.

Gail Rosen, LCSW
Couples Counselor

Gail Rosen, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 07446 - Nearby to River Vale.

Often couples seek counseling because one or both of them feels there has been a breakdown in communication, a misalignment of values, or a fundamental loss of sexual attraction. Or they may have a strong relationship but are experiencing a shared hardship and would like to explore ways to communicate and share their emotions freely without hurting the other or diminishing self-esteem. It is important to realize that all relationships have pros and cons and no two people are 100% compatible. My office offers that safe place for exploration and contemplation where they will learn the skills to stop a situation from going from bad to worse by working through it on their own.
