Is your relationship suffering from distance, anger and negativity, lack of intimacy, boredom, distrust or betrayal? Couples therapy can often help turn these upsetting situations around. I help couples develop new skills of understanding, listening and connection. In sessions we identify and learn how to implement positive connections. . My work is influenced by the approaches of John Gottman, Sue Johnson and Stan Tatkin. My nearly 30 years of work experience has helped me learn a great deal from my clients. Together, we will quickly identify what is and isn't helpful for your unique relationship. In my work you will feel the respect and safety that your relationship deserves.

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?

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.

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).

Michael Fisher, PhD

Clinical Psychologist

In 10001 - Nearby to Upper Saddle River.

Couples seek out psychotherapy for many reasons ranging from the tensions that arise as relationships evolve to the pain of infidelity. Most obviously in working with couples I begin by trying to understand the nature of the problem that brought them to seek therapy. I find that one of the most valuable things I do is create a safe environment where issues can be expressed and feelings shared. Importantly, I help couples to avoid knee-jerk emotional responses and open up lines of communication that can help bring couples closer.

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 Mental Health Counselor

You will learn the complicated dynamics that are occurring in your relationship on several different levels - emotion, behavior, and cognitive. You will each learn what you bring to the relationship as individuals and how that fits with your partner. You will learn communication skills and how to listen to your partner for content and emotion. You will have a safe space to talk about difficult issues. You may find increased intimacy with your partner. Couples counseling is not just for romantic relationships. Business and creative partners can also benefit from couples therapy.

Dr. Vaughan has been working with couples for over 15 years. Treatment aims to identify unwanted relational patterns and to help couples to work through and prevent such patterns. Partners establish relational tools necessary for clearly conveying needs and desires and for effectively meeting the needs of their significant others. Over the course of treatment, couples feel more trusting, connected, and understood.

In 10605 - Nearby to Upper Saddle River.

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.

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.

Gail Rosen, LCSW
Couples Counselor

Gail Rosen, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 07446 - Nearby to Upper Saddle River.

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.

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.
