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.

As has been the cry of physicians since the breed was invented: Why do you wait so long to come see me?! Research has shown that couples don't seek help for on average six years after problems emerge, by which time the resentment and problems have become long standing and unwieldy. By then, as any of you who have gone to couples counseling probably know, the therapy feels like too little too late and couples leave discouraged by the size of the problems. Solution: Go sooner! Even the best relationships require tending and attention, so when something is brewing that you can't resolve yourselves, don't let it fester. The sooner you go for a tune-up, the faster (and cheaper) it'll be.

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.

I provide couples counseling that emphasizes that there are two separate individuals contributing to one couples dynamic. Therefore I strive to understand how each member of the couple functions and how this impacts the relationship. The goal is to determine if the couple can learn how to complement one another in a manner that will maximize relationship satisfaction.

Barbara Bennett, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

In 10001 - Nearby to Flower Hill.

Relationships are hard, as any news site will eagerly tell you. Stories of celebrity affairs, break-ups and other scandals are so common that there doesn’t seem to be much hope for the rest of us. I’m here to tell you that there is hope, even after years of tension, conflict, or emotional distance for any couple—straight, gay, dating, married, post-divorce—from any racial, ethnic, or spiritual background. Conflict happens in all relationships. But it isn’t inevitable, even after years of bad feeling. I help couples step outside of their pain and frustration to see each of their roles in these conflicts. From there, couple can begin to communicate and finally have conversations that have productive outcomes leading to greater intimacy.

You don’t even know how long it’s been since you and your partner felt connected. Life has gotten so crazy that prioritizing togetherness falls straight to the bottom of your mental to-do list. You know you are ‘all in’. You are fully committed and want this to work. It’s just that, when the same old problems and arguments come up you start to wonder, “Why am I doing this? Is it over?” Maybe there is a crisis, you’ve been unfaithful or you discovered that your partner was, how do you pick up the pieces? How can you possibly move on? I'm here to tell you, its possible to heal. It's possible to have the life you truly want.

Drawing close in intimacy in a couple can be challenging. Being close to another person can result in buttons getting pushed in areas of the self that were never resolved. Despite the challenge, we deeply want to feel intimacy in life. Intimacy in relationship, while often challenging, is one of the greatest opportunities for growth. Caring, compassionate communication between partners opens each person to deeper feeling, connection, and expression. These capacities are crucial for a fulfilled life. I help you learn genuine communication expressing your needs while respecting and caring for your partner. These fulfilling communications lead to a better relationship and a better life.

Currently I work with couples to create a therapeutic alliance of trust and safety, to gain better insights about their life challenges, and to assist the clients in reaching their goals and connect better with their loved ones through improved communication patterns and increased intimacy. The pain and conflict of the committed relationship arise not out of lack of love for our partners, but from misunderstanding what love relationship is about. Using Imago Dialogue restores contact and connection, enabling mutual emotional healing, restarting the developmental engine and leading to the recovery of personal wholeness

Dating. Engaged. Living together. Married. Couples in any place or stage of their relationship, experience a full range of experiences, feelings, expectations, and hopes that may or may not be fulfilled or fulfilling. You may discover that your values are different or that what you thought about your partner is different from what is. Perhaps you love your partner and relationship but find there are certain themes of conflict that arise. You can look at these themes or areas of conflict to become more in-line with each other, even in your differences. Being the same is not what makes for happy relationships. Being ACCEPTING of differences is what does.

Relationship can bring great joy as well and great challenges. Many problems stem from difficulty communicating with your partner. I can assist you in finding the way to express yourself, as well as the capacity to listen; to find the appropriate boundaries that enable you to feel free while staying connected. Working through conflicts in relationships often not only preserves the relationship, but also empowers each individual to be more confident and open in their own life.

Licensed Psychologist

In 10001 - Nearby to Flower Hill.

It's important that you know that I don't take sides or engage in blaming either partner. I understand that you are in my office because you want help. I get to know the couple as individuals and as a couple. So in addition to meeting together, I would meet individually with both partners. We would come up with a treatment plan, including frequency of meeting and schedule, treatment goals, and what each person wants from the therapy. We might focus on identifying feelings, changing toxic communication patterns, and opening up communication.

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.

Couples, married or not, seek therapy for many reasons; including hoping to resolve differences, hoping to improve communication, and/or hoping to improve their intimate relationship. My work with couples, enhanced by my training in sex therapy, addresses these issues so as to help the individuals within the relationship more effectively express themselves and more effectively understand their partner, and so as to promote the overall strength and joy in the relationship itself.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

Most couples struggle to figure out how to make their relationships work at one time or another. Couples therapy can be an effective means of managing conflicts, deepening intimacy and friendship and making difficult but important decisions in and about your relationship. Each relationship is unique but most can benefit from making improvements in communication, learning more about what each partner needs and from working to most effectively negotiate differences. I have been working towards these goals with couples for over 10 years and would be happy to talk with you about whether I can be helpful to you and your partner.

Why do we seem to have the same arguments over and over again? How do I know if we are really supposed to be together? Are there things we could be doing to better support each other, to help each other grow and be our best selves? If we really love each other, why do we so often hurt each other? How do I know if this is real love, anyway? Relationships are hard. Even more than desire, they require effort and understanding to make them work. Often, even if two people really love each other, one or both may need help to maintain the right effort or understanding to keep the balance necessary for long-term success. Having outside, objective support can make all the difference.

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.

Couples therapy is not what it seems. Couples often come to therapy looking to get "closer" but moving toward more intimacy is not a linear process. As a couples therapist, I help people to focus on themselves as individuals and the movement between self-needs and relational-needs. It is the dance between these two dimensions that moves a couple toward building their unique connection, an authentic relationship built on mutuality, respect, and separateness/closeness at different times. Most couples wait to come to therapy when things have been going wrong for too long. They have tried various couples therapists who haven't had the ability to see what is not being said.

Psychotherapy and Counseling

In 10021 - Nearby to Flower Hill.

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.

In 10003 - Nearby to Flower Hill.

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.

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

In 11701 - Nearby to Flower Hill.

Couples can be premarital, marital, same sex, transgender, lesbian or gay. Couples can be sexually involved, emotionally involved, or both. I love working with couples of all types! There are many themes that occur with couples that can cause problems, such as money, power, sexuality, children (if there are any), in-laws/family, friends, values, etc. I am experienced in working with couples of all kinds and helping you create better communication and intimacy. When you are in therapy, you will feel heard and respected in a way that you may not be able to feel without a facilitator. I will make sure that each of you have a forum to express yourselves respectfully.

We help couples strengthen their relationships in a safe, confidential setting. Counseling can give you insight into your dynamics, prevent disagreements from escalating, repair emotional wounds, and rekindle passion. Even the healthiest, most loving couples fight. Disagreements are natural in any relationship. What matters is how you process them. What lessons do you learn? What actions do you take to meet everyone’s needs going forward? It takes uncommon skills to resolve disputes with sensitivity. An experienced New York couples counselor can illuminate your relationship dynamics in useful ways, resolve existing conflicts and prevent unhealthy escalation.
