Couples therapy is crucial for those who wish to preserve or grow their relationship bond. Issues such as communication, accessibility, prioritization, and thought management are explored with couples, both one-on-one and together, as to facilitated openness and constructive conflict when necessary. Clients find reasons to work together and become the best versions of themselves that they can be.

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.

It is not easy being part of a couple. Two different people with two separate egos, and various wants, needs, preferences, and desires. Doing the work to become an effective couple is not for sissies. It requires a great deal of courage to honestly reveal who we are to our partner. My approach to working with couples helps them create the conditions for fostering an accepting, respectful, and honest relationship.

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.

Relationship can bring great joy as well and great challenges. Many problems stem from difficulty communicating with your partner.

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.

Philip Kolba, MA
Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Available for Online Therapy

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.

Cathy Noblick, LCSW
Couples Counselor

Cathy Noblick, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 07702 - Nearby to South Plainfield.

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.

Karyn Reader, MSW, LCSW, BCD
Couples Counselor

Karyn Reader, MSW, LCSW, BCD

Psychotherapist

In 07869 - Nearby to South Plainfield.

I help couples of all ages and types to resolve issues that interfere with their connection and contentment. For most, this includes intimacy problems, both emotional and sexual. We focus on communication, assumptions, misunderstandings, differences, needs, wants, trust as well as betrayals, including affairs, roles and expectations. I start by seeing you together so we all hear together why you are seeking help. Unlike individual therapy, which is entirely confidential, with couples, the work is for both of you so it is important that the three of us communicate without keeping secrets. I often also have some individual sessions to get to better know who you are apart from your partner.
