Couples Counselor

Patricia Pitta, Ph.D., A.B.P.P.

Clinical and Board Certified Family Psychologist

Marriage or couple relationships are a tug of war for power and control. When the leverage of the couple becomes one sided: disappointment, fears, worries and anger become predominant emotions. At this point, you may think about leaving because you can't understand your conflicted feelings. Remember, " You can't run away from yourself". It is essential to know your contribution to the dysfunction in the relationship. When you can face your feelings and behaviors patterns and take responsibility for your actions leaving the "blame" behind, the couple begins the repair process enabling respectful listening and communicating leading to healing feelings and setting the stage for intimacy.

Couples go through rough patches in their relationships. It is my ultimate goal and mission to help them strengthen their relationships. This can be accomplished by demonstrating them better communication techniques, improving trust within the relationship, how to cope with stress together, establishing boundaries, improving intimacy, and teaching them to work as a unit. In addition, I help the couples to work through major issues that can salvage the relationship as well.

Many times, it is difficult to find a balance within the marital unit. Often times, each individual is unable to recognize or understand the other, and as such, conflict often occurs. Couples therapy allows a safe environment for both members to feel respected and heard. Emphasis is placed on helping to identify needs and expectations of one another and work toward achieving goals of the individual and the couple in session.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

My approach to working with couples begins with seeing both clients together to gain an understanding of their dynamic as well as the individual issues (including family of origin) that have brought them into therapy. I then help them determine their goals as a couple and develop a treatment plan, including empathic listening, relationship exercises, and communications counseling, that will help them achieve their objectives.

Growing together with our loved ones can be an amazing gift. Somewhere along the line we sometimes struggle with those closest to us. We may bring our old emotional issues into a new relationship or perhaps we find our old ways of communicating with our loved one is no longer working the way it used to. Change is difficult but taking steps to increase communication and sort out our old beliefs that no longer serve us, can bring new light and joy to the relationships we cherish.

Couples Counselor

Walter Masterson, LCSW

Psychotherapy and Counseling

Within driving distance of Elwood

Careers and children each place enormous stress on a couple’s ability to be together in an intimate and satisfying way. Every couple has different ways of dealing with the challenges, and counseling can provide the perspective and encouragement to re-create a shared vision for the future. For something as important as this, it is surprising how little training and preparation is provided; family therapy fills in the blanks, and resolves the confusion.

Couples Counselor

Stephanie Burchell, PhD, LMFT, CFLE

Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Elwood

Couples counseling is about partners working to see each other as people, to understand where they are coming from, and to negotiate those differences that can be negotiated and accept those differences that cannot. Couples all have issues that stay with them; the key is to build a line of communication that helps provide an emotionally safe platform to talk about those issues, to find solutions, and not have problems that emerge in life become overwhelming. Counseling acts as a form of healing for troubled partners and as a preventative measure for many large problems that may loom in a couple's future.

Licensed Professional Therapist

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.

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

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.
