Mitchell Milch, LCSW

Psychotherapist/Couples Counselor

Couples in trouble are often spouses who are at odds with each other over unrealistic expectations that true love be their salvation. The spouse who is not the answer to personal unhappiness is blamed as the problem. The answer is to create a "we" that meets the mutual needs of the partners, and creates an environment of safety and security to empower each partner to be more accepting and loving of themselves.

Most relationships get strained at some point. Working with a therapist may be helpful. Couple's counseling, marriage counseling, and relationship therapy is the process of working with a couple to identify and manage problematic issues or dynamics in a relationship. Treatment may include examining how each of the partners' personalities and values influence communication and behavior within the relationship.

Group Practice

People entering couples counseling are oftentimes looking for a way to change their partner. In truth, what usually has occurred is a new context of life, usually stress, imposing itself on the couple which sometimes brings out different responses in different people. Really, couple wants and needs to find new ways of being together, as they perceive staying together as less daunting than splitting apart. In couples counseling, we carefully tease out what each partner does to make the relationship difficult, collaboratively lay out what expectations each can have of the other, and find new ways each can express their fondness and affection for the other.

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

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

Licensed Professional Counselor & Board Certified Coach

Within driving distance of Haverstraw

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 Counselor

Elizabeth Zimmerman, MFT

Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Haverstraw

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

Catherine Kelly, DC, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

Within driving distance of Haverstraw

As a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist much of my work is with couples. Couples can be challenged in all stages of the life cycle: Pre-marriage, marital, living together, separating, divorcing, re-marrying, etc. Working with couples is a complex and challenging area of therapy which I particularly enjoy. Often the stakes are high. Helping couples come to a place where each partner is more whole and healthy and the relationship is strong and satisfying is a very gratifying part of my work.

Couples Counselor

Judy Strauss, PhD, LCSW

Psychotherapist /Psychoanalyst

Within driving distance of Haverstraw

Sometimes couples need to learn how to disagree and still be in love. If there is love still alive in the relationship there is hope for couples struggling to achieve a more loving and meaningful relationship. There is often a third party ,be it another person, an addiction, money or children that gets between a couple and creates a divide. Understanding where the other is coming from with compassion in the presence of a couples counselor can be the beginning of a better and long lasting relationship.

Couples Counselor

Kevin Fleming Ph.D.

Coach/Change Agent/Consultant

Within driving distance of Haverstraw

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?

Couples Counselor

Zalman Nelson, LMSW

Licensed Professional Therapist

Within driving distance of Haverstraw

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 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.

Psychotherapist / Licensed Clinical Social Worker

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.
