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?

It can take us a lifetime to learn to accept the person we have chosen to live with, but it could also take us the same time to try to change that person and not be successful. Couples Therapy can help us understand that even though we all have the potential to change, we cannot change the other. We can learn how to accept the other person, live together or decide not to, and explore what are our own contributions to the dilemmas that we present.

Licensed Psychoanalyst

In 10003 - Nearby to Upper Montclair.

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.

Couples Counselor

Edgard Danielsen, PhD, LP

Licensed Psychoanalyst

In 10001 - Nearby to Upper Montclair.

Sometimes members of a couple get stuck in their old relational patterns, the ways they have always related to others. As years pass by, and romance or sexual experiences diminish or other life events happen, the old patterns become more evident leading to gaps in communication, dissatisfaction, and lack of excitement. As a therapist, I will help you to communicate more effectively with your partner, in ways that acknowledge your personal needs and the needs of the other. I will help you find balance between conflicting needs: the needs of the individual and the needs of a couple. I work with straight couples and GLBT couples.

Gail Rosen, LCSW
Couples Counselor

Gail Rosen, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 10001 - Nearby to Upper Montclair.

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.

I will help you offer loving support both to yourself and to your partner .

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.

Fall Willeboordse, LCSW-R

In 10001 - Nearby to Upper Montclair.

Every couple is unique in the way the partners relate, communicate, and approach conflict---or fail to do so. For that reason I treat every couple according to its own very specific issues. If you feel you’ve been coming up against the same problems with no resolution, or have had a new crisis emerge in your relationship, getting help sooner rather than waiting can often repair and strengthen the relationship. I work short term and am solution-focused.
