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.

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.

Licensed Professional Counselor, Art Therapist

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.

Couples Counselor

Daniel Minuchin, LMFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Shrewsbury

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.

Couples Counselor

Cathy Noblick, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Within driving distance of Shrewsbury

Maintaining a healthy long-term relationship is one of the greatest challenges we face. It is also one of the most important to our general well-being. As we are growing up, there is little guidance about how to have a good relationship. Most of us learn about relationships from watching the model our parents provide...not always the best place to learn. In recent years there has been a lot of research on what works in relationships and what doesn't. Unfortunately, much of what works does not come naturally. I can help you undo some of the damage from years of negative habits, and share the latest findings about how to achieve a happier, healthier relationship.

Couples Counselor

Johannes Marselis, LCSW, LCSW

Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Shrewsbury

All couples endure the pulls of difference of opinion, contradictory goals, feelings, and betrayals, sometimes ever so slight. But when unattended to, when communication has become challenged or when there is an infidelity or other actions that betray trust it is natural to seek assistance. My goal is that both of you feel respected for who you are and what you would like to achieve in your lives. However, the process of discovery can be incredibly challenging, if not painful. Acceptance, forgiveness, change - these can seem impossible to imagine at times, but can be achieved. Some couples desire to improve their relationships, and others to end them with respect and clear communication.

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.

Couples Counselor

Saranya Tracey, M.A., psychotherapist,

Saranya M. Tracey, MA, Clinical Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Shrewsbury

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.

No matter how well suited two people are for each other, there are times when resentments or insecurities can get in the way of a truly functional relationship. Whether you are married, planning to get married, or having difficulty with a child or parent, we can help both of you address what might be impeding your ability to have a more satisfying relationship. It is not always easy, but talking with a neutral person can provide you with a deeper insight into the dynamics of your relationship so that you can revisit your interpersonal style.
