Couples Counselor

Lisa Lempel-Sander, LPsyA

Licensed Psychoanalyst

Couples, like individuals, can get stuck in unhealthy patterns. Treatment calls for a strong commitment to fairness and sensitivity to the narratives of both partners. It also calls for a trained ear that can hear and decipher how each partner contributes to the dysfunction. The benefits of couples therapy include learning how to communicate effectively, how to promote and increase the intimacy and closeness in your relationship, and how to negotiate conflict. My work with couples also includes sex-therapy and sex education.

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.

Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within driving distance of Freeport

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

Couples Counselor

Esther Goldstein, LCSW,MSW,CASAC-T

Licensed Clinical Psychotherapist

Within driving distance of Freeport

Relationships can be complex. Each individual has their own set of needs, wants, hopes and dreams. In couples counseling we explore the relationship, what has been working, and how to work through the "knots" so that you can experience more moments of joy, connection and increase the love for one another. I work with couples who are either looking forward to begin "coupling", are wanting to have more interest in their relationship, couples experiencing disconnect, as well as couples who are wondering if their relationship can last. In couples counseling, we look at all the components, patterns, love languages and together, create a pathway, as well as steps to healthy change.

The Imago Way, Psy.D. & L.C.S.W.

Licensed Psychologist & Licensed Social Worker

Within driving distance of Freeport

I work with couples to become more conscious and intentional in their interactions. I teach couples specific communication skills to break destructive patterns of relating. I encourage each partner to look and their own behavior and how they may be contributing to the problems. I explore with couples how the problems they are having in their current relationship are related to their experiences in childhood. I work with couples on eliminating reactivity by implementing self-soothing techniques. My goal with couples is to have both partners feel heard and understood by each other.

Couples Counselor

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

Clinical and Board Certified Family Psychologist

Within driving distance of Freeport

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.

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.

I provide couples counseling that emphasizes that there are two separate individuals contributing to one couples dynamic.
