Couples Counselor

Kelley Hopkins-Alvarez, LPC,NCC,BCC,MS,MSEd

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

Within driving distance of East Fishkill

Couples are my passion! When was the last time you had an open conversation with your partner about sex? About emotional intimacy? About communication? We look at the negative cycle that has swallowed you both up, causing stress and disconnection. I am also an affair specialist and have worked with countless couples to sift through the incredible pain to see if there is anything left of the relationship to be salvaged (in many cases, there is). I have met many couples who come in as roommates, where deep wounds are present. Couples feel like my office is a safe place to share, connect, get questions answered and get the professional help that they have needed.

Some therapists may recommend to a particular couple that the partners engage first in individual therapy, separately, before engaging in couples work. If both partners are not able to maintain a certain level of insight, responsibility, and maturity in their communications, couples work will be ineffective. For relationship counseling to significantly help a relationship, each partner needs to have a commitment to the relationship, or, at least to the couples counseling for the time it continues. Each partner must be generally honest, self-aware, and interested in doing relationship work to have an optimal outcome. Some couples need therapy to help end a relationship in a healthy manner.

Couples counseling involves learning to listen, agreeing to disagree and having mutual respect for self and others. This reaches beyond marriage- it can be any type of relationship. I am currently studying the Gottmann Method for Couples Counseling and know how to facilitate communication skills to bring a clear understanding and better engagement strategies for couples.

Lenore Millian, Ph. D.

Clinical Psychologist

Within driving distance of East Fishkill

My book, "The Second Wives Club: Secrets for Becoming Lovers for Life" gave me recognition as an "expert" in the field of couples and marriage counseling. My approach is very direct, with much feedback, and emphasis on communication skills. It is very important for me to get to know each person individually in order to help them understand and overcome their part in the conflict . We then are able to have more effective joint counseling sessions. A relationship (like a garden) must be nurtured.

Couples Counselor

Yudit Maros, LMFT, C.Ht.

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist, Licensed Psychotherapist, Certified Hypnotherapist

Within driving distance of East Fishkill

Relationships can mean bliss, torture, and everything in between. We are built to depend on each other, and especially on our significant others to get some of our most important needs met. I can help you to communicate in a way that you can be heard, so that you may create a mutually fulfilling relationship. Assertiveness, stress management, positive conflict resolution are all part of this work, as well as resolving any old blockages from your respective pasts that might interfere with building a healthy and loving relationship. I work with partners with any sexual identity or orientation.

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

Online Therapist / Coach

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.

Couples Counselor

Elizabeth Zimmerman, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of East Fishkill

Our intimate relationships can be the source of our greatest joy and the place we confront our deepest fears and vulnerabilities. Through the use of an emotionally focused approach, I help couples expand and reorganize their inner experience, develop an awareness of destructive patterns, reconnect with one another and heal from emotional pain. Research on Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) has demonstrated the effectiveness of this approach: Following EFT, 90% of couples report improvement in their relationship, and indicate that that the changes attained through therapy endure over time. EFT allows couples to have a new experience of one another, and ultimately to create secure connection.

Couples Counselor

Zalman Nelson, LMSW

Licensed Professional Therapist

Online Therapist / Coach

Marriages and relationships have a core: the connection and bond between the two. When it's weak or untended-to, the strife and arguments begin. Help is needed to get to the core, hit the essential issues and needs, and many of the symptoms fade. For many, each spouse has a past, history, and baggage they carry into the relationship. It's a roadblock between you two, preventing connection and happiness. When removed, the relationship thrives.

Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Online Therapist / Coach

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? Contact kevin@kevinflemingphd.com to learn how! Or call 877-606-6161. DR. FLEMING'S NEW RELATIONSHIP/COUPLES INTENSIVES. www.kevinflemingphd.com/marriage-couples-retreats.php

John Gerson, Ph.D.

Licensed Psychologist

I am an institute trained couples therapist, and have been practicing couple therapy for 40 years. When the two of you come to see me you will feel a sense of warmth, safety and understanding. You will benefit by the strategies I will suggest during sessions, as well as through homework assignments. It can be a very odd experience to simply talk to your spouse, with no distractions (children, obligations of the day, etc). Not infrequently life is so complex that partners can only talk to each other in a session, behind a closed door, with no expected interruption. You will learn to create and sustain emotional intimacy, and your sexual connection with your partner is bound to improve.
