Couples Counselor

Barbara Bennett, LMFT

Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist

302 5th Avenue, 8th floor, Room 20, New York, New York

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.

Couples Counselor

Couples Counselor

Jeff Robinson, MSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

16 East 41st Street, New York, New York

Coming to counseling as a couple is fraught with risk. Will the therapist be fair? Will I be heard? Will I feel a connection with the therapist? What will be involved? Most couples seek therapy well into the conflict--yes, never too late, but more challenging to heal. It is the responsibility of the therapist to hear both stories. Each partner comes with his/her own histories that have become part of the narrative. We need to take a look at this to see how it has impacted the relationship. We need to highlight the need for empathy in our relationships—we may not agree, but can we understand and feel how our partner may be experiencing the matter at hand? Can we have compassion?

Couples Counselor

Howard Rossen, LCSW

Licensed Clinical Social Worker

59 West 74th street, New York, New York

Maintaining and nourishing a meaningful relationship is far harder than anyone can reasonably predict. You and your partner are both independently formed individuals that "come together to form a more perfect union." But if we don't learn to adapt and respect the needs of our partner how can we grow as a couple? And if we don't honor our individual needs and desires how can we breathe within ourselves? It is this battle of mutual respect for our relationship while honoring the self-respect of our individuality that creates the chasm of a couple's conflict. A healthy and supportive counseling environment can begin the process of regaining the spark that was ignited the first time you met.

Couples Counselor

Ariella Soffer, Ph.D.

Licensed Clinical PhD Psychologist

330 west 58th Street, Suite 409, New York, New York

Relationships play a role in almost every aspect of life. If any of the following questions apply to you: Do you want more out of your relationships? Are you experiencing conflict in your intimate relationships? Are you afraid of loosing a relationship? Are you lonely? Are you frustrated by looking for a love relationship? Have you just lost a relationship? I can help individuals look inward and understand more about themselves and what is getting in the way, so that you can take steps forward towards being more fulfilled.

Couples Counselor

Angela Monti Fox, LCSW, MS,PC

Angela Monti Fox, Licensed Mental Health Professional

276 Riverside Drive (100 Street), New York, New York

My approach to couples counseling is unique. It is not about telling me your problem and having me find a solution-it is about facing each other and communicating and together perhaps ironing out a solution. There is no "he said, she said"! The structure of the session is set in a safe and healing environment that allows each of you to face one another and find the words you want him or her to hear but haven't been able to say and perhaps retrieve the love you lost. There is no problem too big or too small. Come to couple counseling and see what you can salvage; and if you cannot I will help you separate in peace and harmony. Partners in business can also find couples counseling useful.

Couples Counselor

New York Behavioral Health, Ph.D.

New York Behavioral Health

380 Lexington Avenue, 17th Floor, New York, New York

Couples often go through ups and downs. While this can be normal, many of us have discovered at times that we may not have the emotional, interpersonal, or practical skills to navigate this as well as we would like. There is a great deal of evidence that cognitive behavioral couples therapy is effective for increasing relationship satisfaction. There is even evidence that effective couples therapy can help to reduce depression symptoms. While a romantic relationship may require work, we also want it to be a source of support. Learning skills to effectively communicate, problem solve, and accept the situations a couple faces can significantly improve both partners' satisfaction.

Couples Counselor

Karen Arluck, LCSW, RYT

Psychotherapist

56 West 87th Street, Manhattan, New York

I work with couples facing all different challenges to help them feel more satisfaction in their relationship. Couples counseling is a unique type of therapy as it is different than working with an individual. I pay particular attention to making the therapy process feel as safe as possible, and balancing each person's individual feelings and thoughts as well as their feelings as a couple.

Couples Counselor

Nikki DiFranks, PhD, MA, MS, LCSW-R

Dr. Nikki Nelson DiFranks

1841 Broadway, Suite 700, New York City, New York

Although some clinicians may treat unmarried/married couples differently, I do not. This is because I do not take a position, often assumed with pastoral counseling, that a couple ought stay together. My aim is to assess what the couple and family system desires, and where there is disparity, to facilitate a solution that is viable for all. Often, I work to help a confused couple decide whether they wish to stay together, and if they do not, I can help them decide how to separate, as well as help other family members make this transition. Many times, couples/family therapy is about improving the relationships without intentions separation. Assessment of needs is critical to my approach.

Couples Counselor

Carolyn AlRoy, Psy.D.

Licensed Psychologist

19 West 34th St., Penthouse, New York, New York

I get to know the couples as individuals and as a couple. So, I would start with a joint session with the both of you, and then see you both individually. The reason for that is that people share different information with and without their partner. All information is confidential, and the rule is "No leaking" (that is, not to talk about your individual session, with me, with your partner).

Couples Counselor

Philip Kolba, MA

Psychotherapist

New York, New York

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

Walter Masterson, LCSW

Psychotherapy and Counseling

Home visits , Suffolk County, New York

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

H.C. Fall Willeboordse, LCSW-R

Fall Willeboordse, LCSW-R

244 5th Ave. Suite 9G, New York, New York

Every couple is unique in the way the partners relate, communicate, and approach conflict---or fail to do so. For that reason I treat every couple according to its own very specific issues. If you feel you’ve been coming up against the same problems with no resolution, or have had a new crisis emerge in your relationship, getting help sooner rather than waiting can often repair and strengthen the relationship. I work short term and am solution-focused.
