I am Level 3 trained in Gottman Method Couples therapy which has been shown to help couples maintain their connection and overcome conflict in a real and deep way. I have a Master's Degree in Marriage and Family therapy so I am especially trained to understand what makes marriages and relationships work. In our work together you will gain better listening skills, conflict resolution tools, and a united vision for your relationship. You will also leave each session with concrete ways to improve your relationship during the week. I work with couples across the spectrum from premarital to co-parenting. I support couples with particularly difficult issues such as infidelity and grief.

We are meant to form connections that are safe and close and loving, but most couples at some time or another find themselves stuck in a repetitive pattern of interacting which leaves each person feeling hurt and alone. Emotionally Focused Therapy for couples, the most well-researched approach to couple therapy, is a powerful tool that will help get to the heart of the problem and to find your way back to that experience of loving connection. Interrupting that downward spiral feels like hard work for most couples, but beginning to move to a new, warm, close place, is immensely rewarding, even for those who have previously been distressed or shut down. I have great hope for couples!

Marriage and Family Therapist, Yoga Instructor

In 19102 - Nearby to Upper Deerfield.

A relationship requires work but it doesn't have to feel painful and exhausting along the way. Couples therapy focuses on helping partners form positive and meaningful interactions, develop relational goals, and build on communication skills in order to feel heard, understood, and deeply loved by your significant other. I use Emotion Focused Therapy to help partners label and understand each other's underlying feelings and to develop more affect and compassion for one another. I also offer couples yoga to work on intimacy and trust issues.

How to Get the Love You Want Take a minute to think about what you expect from a loving relationship with a partner. Does your list contain any of the following common expectations? o Healing past wounds o Meeting all of your current emotional needs o Fulfilling fantasies and idealizations of how life should be o Making up for other less rewarding aspects of life / making your life "whole" Any one of these expectations alone can be a very tall order! Not surprisingly, relationships often buckle under these kinds of pressures. So, what to do? Learn to take care of and give to the relationship; in other words, give instead of trying to get the love you want. Take care of the rel....

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 Psychologist

In 08053 - Nearby to Upper Deerfield.

I believe couples work is about finding common ground, letting go of resentment and old hostility, and recognizing its not about who is right or wrong. We can reconnect with new communication skills to regain the connection from early in the relationship. Often recognizing that a relationship needs nourishing is difficult, and once realized making a call for help is even more so. We are here to serve the people f southern New Jersey with professional and judgement/bias free services.

Licensed Professional Counselor

In 19102 - Nearby to Upper Deerfield.

Feeling strong and secure in your primary relationship can have a positive impact on all areas of your life. Whether your are interested in pre-marital, marital or general couples counseling, I can help you improve your communication and overall satisfaction in your relationship. I use a model of counseling called Eco-Systemic Structural Family Therapy (ESFT) which emphasizes the idea that relationships patterns repeat themselves. I will help you and your partner identify these patterns, explore one another's perspectives and create new, healthier patterns that allow for happy and sustainable relationships.

Licensed Psychologist

In 19085 - Nearby to Upper Deerfield.

I always prefer to see couples BEFORE they get married, because so many problems can be avoided by getting started out on the right foot. By learning good communication and problem solving skills before marriage, you can move on to that next step with confidence and skill. I also work with couples for whom marriage is not the goal, who are gay or lesbian, or couples who simply have reached an impasse on an issue and are looking for an objective third party.

Anger is not an aphrodisiac nor is it helpful in getting more of what you want. Couples in conflict often focus too much energy on changing their partner. The problem is that each partner does not have direct control over the other. The way out is of this dilemma is to learn how to not get so upset over what you dislike in your partner. I teach each partner how to improve their relationship by first modifying their own behavior. By having better control over your emotional and behavioral reactions you can more constructively communicate, negotiate and influence your partner. I teach you how to get your message across and positively influence your partner so that you can enjoy the results!

In 08107 - Nearby to Upper Deerfield.

What secrets do happy couples hold? Are they built differently than us? Do they eat better, or sleep better? How is it that some of us can get along so well, while others of us deplete precious energy during numerous fights and disagreements. As a professional, I have some insight into this problem. Happy couples share two essentials. The first thing, their shared sense of love, is something we all know about. The secret love of happy couples sustains because both partners accept each other fully. The key is always, without condition, loving and accepting all of your partner all of the time. It's not magical. With effort and patience, we may all be happier, better spouses sometime soon.

Sometimes it's difficult to be in a relationship. No matter how much you love someone, there can be challenges and stress points within the relationship that create conflict. Couples seek counseling for many different reasons. Negative communication, infidelity and coping through a difficult life change are some reasons why couples seek counseling. Couples who want to learn how to communicate better and re-establish intimacy also seek therapy. I specialize in helping couples learn more effective ways of communicating with one another to increase intimacy, decrease relationship tension and meet other goals important to the relationship.
